Paint Yourself A Purple Cow Shade Of Remarkable.The Daily Grind Challenge – Levitate Above The Sea Of Sameness

Are people whispering about you?  Do people remember you?  Do you make a WOW-Impression?

You are’t forgettable or invisible are you?

You’re told, you must be “remarkable” to create Top Of Mind Awareness (it’s true).

Do you wonder, “How Am I Supposed To Do That”?

Here’s an easy way to paint your Personal-Brand a Remarkable Shade Of Purple Cow.

Say It & Mail It: iPhone Voice Mail/eMail WOW Magic

When not in person, how do you communicate with your friends, family, colleagues and clients?  You eMail and Voice-Mail right?

Big whoop, every Tom, Jane and Dick does that.  Email and Voice-Mail are unremarkable.

Run to the iTunes App Store and buy this $1.99 marvel.  Use it and people will go, “WOW”.  When people go” WOW”, tiny electrochemical sparks tickle their brains. When you tickle someones brain they remember you (think getting hired).  When what you do makes people go “WOW”, they tell others (think referral recommendations).

Bottom line:  This is a remarkable, simple, easy to use, iPhone app, that will save you time and make others go WOW.

Say It Mail It iPhone App - Super Cool and Simple

Here’s What It Does:

Touch the “Say it” button and record your message.  Stroke the “Play it” button and listen to what you’ve recorded.

Touch the camera icon and snap a picture.

Touch the Hwy. 10 icon and record your location on Google Maps, it has satellite view too;-)

Touch the “Mail It” button and eMail your Voice-Message, a picture (you can use a previously snapped picture from your camera roll too) and your location (photo and location are optional).

Here’s Why You Want It:

Text eMail is Bland and easily misinterpreted,  with this, your recipient hears your tone, nuance and accurate message.

No fumbling, no embarrassing misspelled words:-)  If you have nails or fingers, The iPhone keyboard is tricky, with this, no typing, simply record your message.

No squinting:-) Your recipient might have old eyes, I know I do.  With this, they receive your eMail/Voice Mail, touch play, and listen with blissful simplicity and convenience.

Here’s A Few Ideas On How To Use It.

WOW yourself!  Wanna remember or remind yourself, quickly record a voice memo and send it to yourself.

WOW your friends.  I bet they’ve never received an eMail/Voice Mail.  Record a friendly, “Hi, how’s it go’n?  I was thinking about you and thought I’d fire off this little message. blah, blah, yada, yada.”, include your picture or a picture of whatever you’re talking about. (see sample email below).

I’m not in favor of showing feedback, but if you must, do it fast, short and in sweet style.  Record > Send > Boom.

I use it to make announcments, reminders and updates to the entire (82 Realtor Icon) team. Click  > Record > Snap Picture > Click Mail It  > Boo-Ya Ka- Sha > 82 eMail/Voice Mail messages go out instantly.  WOW-Factor, compliments and “How Cool’s” roll in everytime.

Update you clients and prospects.

Announce Open Houses.

Announce new listings (cool with a picture and geo location).

Share. Engage.  Inform.  Etc.

Set yourself up with a account and send these messages to your Posterous blog, then Posterous can send your “work-of-wonder” to Facebook and Twitter…all with one click.  (Don’t have a blog – GET ONE – Here’s HOW)

How will you use something like this? Leave us some ideas in the comments, that’d be cool.  No, seriously, how would you creatively use this? Thanks.

Here’s What The Voice Mail Sounds Like.

Here’s What It Looks Like When Opened:

Here's what the eMail looks like when opened.  Your's will be way cooler, because it'll be your voice and maybe your picture.  Cheers.

Thanks for reading.  Cheers.

PS.  This is a simple share.  I do not own Apple stock, sadly, I did not buy it when it was at $80. Also, I do not own stock,  receive commissions or benefit financially in anyway  from in “Say It & Send It”.

PSS.  If you download the app, send me one:-)

    Awesome find Ken! Finding these types of great tech tips are usually the realm of Lani – you’re giving her a run for her money!

    Don’t have an iPhone yet – waiting for Sprint to perfect the Pre (or the next generation). With all the apps out there now I might just bite the bullet and switch providers.

    Cool Tool! Every time I read about a new iphone app, I want to run to AT&T and sign up. Like Joe, Sprint is looking more like a past provider of phone service. I’ve even thought about having two phones, two numbers, two providers just to have an iphone.

    Ah if only AT&T didn’t suck in Austin. Just wait until you come up for SXSWi and can’t get service anywhere besides the upper deck of IH35! lol Most Realtors here are chained to the Treo still because it has the infrared tech to open MLS lockboxes. Sad, really.

    COOOOL tool! I’m thinking this is also cool for a first time buyer’s closing, like taking a quick picture of them signing and thumbs-upping and letting them yell into the phone “we did it!” or something, then emailing/vming it to them for their own keepsake and to email to their family and friends (and if they’re tech savvy, it gives them something to put on their blog or microblog). LOVE IT!

    Dood – way cool, but I don’t have a iPhone…dagg!

    Plus you got trumped all day by that ultra cool irish girl dancing in fast motion. Who wants to tall iPhone Apps when you can instead view that 238 times?

    Hey Ken. Great find!.. just clicked through to iTunes and it looks like they just upped it to $4.99.

    I’m going to add this to my 15 favorite Iphone Apps for real estate.

    Thanks for reading friends. I love the iPhone, but it’s true AT&T is worse than terrible. I put up with it because of all their cool apps. Next year they lose the exclusive contract, I’ll be sprinting to who ever else provides the service.

    That is so freaking cool. I’m downloading it right now. If it works as advertised I’ll use it daily. Thanks for the heads up! These are the kinda articles I love. Not bitch posts but stuff we can learn and grow our business with.

    Ugh. It seems like I’ll never be rid of my TMobile contract. I’m currently testing out Google voice for my voicemail client. I don’t see the real benefit so far, but it does have a free voice to text transcription that is kinda cool.
