A great Army General once said, “War is hell, but combat is a mother %&*$#@.” You may or may not understand the meaning behind this statement but it is fairly self explanatory. War is referenced as a general term to encompass the overall campaign of fighting the enemy, but it is the day-to-day “in the trenches” brutality of combat that makes War so terrible…but often necessary.
For the purposes of this blog I will be comparing War to the ongoing struggle of operating and growing a business…whether you run a small real estate business or a Fortune 500 company. Even during a great economy, building a business is an ongoing uphill battle that takes constant focus, flexibility, adaptability, and perseverance. Once a bad economy strikes, all the rules change. It is like running a successful War and then having additional externalities to deal with…we’ll refer to the current economy as “the insurgency”. The most important rules of combat to remember (especially for small units or special operations teams) are SHOOT, MOVE, and COMMUNICATE. These rules must be followed in order to overcome the enemy and maintain tactical control of the situation. In an economy like the one we are in, companies must be able to continually move forward, adapt to current conditions, makes changes where needed, and win the war despite many battles lost. The original playbook may not apply. Your plan for the “war” of building a business most likely was comprised of conventional methods. Once you enter a combat scenario with a strong insurgency element, you must adapt your fighting tactics. This requires your team to become faster, smarter, and more flexible than the conventional force. If you don’t make adjustments you will most certainly perish.
Shoot. In a combat scenario you must always be putting bullets down range and overcome your enemy through superior fire power and swift violence of action. Much is the same when trying to maintain and grow a business during a recession. You must always be making sales, building new relationships, and bringing in business. Without this you put a time limit on your ability to survive. Usual sales tactics do not apply nor may your original revenue streams, but that is the nature of the game.
Move. You must always adapt to your environment, be aware of your surroundings, and for the love of God…KEEP MOVING! If you do not, you will be pinned down or flanked by your enemy. In this case, the enemy is not just your competition, but the economy (or “the insurgency”). Create new revenue streams, hire good sales/business development people, and get rid of the ones that are not bringing in business. Change your tactics and be willing to try something new if it has been thoughtfully researched, planned, and budgeted.
Communicate. Communication is the key to operating in combat. It is key to having a successful sports team, and it is key to growing your company/business. This requires good internal and external communication. You must communicate with your managers and employees…you must communicate effectively with your partners and clients as well. Find out what they need and make plans to service that need in the best way possible.
A well trained special operations team will flood a target in a matter of minutes and overwhelm the enemy by being much better trained, smarter, faster, and more adaptable. They will not go in blasting away at everything in sight but choose their targets wisely to minimize collateral damage. You only want to choose the targets that matter, just as you do in business. Your team might experience losses and you might take a few rounds. Like growing a business in a recession, you must always keep moving forward. Shutting your doors and waiting out the storm usually does not work. Why? Because you have no idea how long the storm will last, who will be around after the storm, and if your business model will even apply. But if you persevere and outlast the storm, your business might be a totally different animal than before. However, you will most assuredly be stronger and smarter than before.

NewCondosOnline.com launched its new website on September 21, 2008. The company, which is currently the largest online marketplace for new construction condos, townhomes, and resort communities, has expanded their focus to include rental property and European real estate. Through partnerships with other online real estate portals, NewCondosOnline.com now offers its users access to thousands of rental communities and real estate for sale all over the world.
“We are in a rapidly changing economic environment, which requires companies like NewCondosOnline.com to be versatile in what we offer our users as well as how were serve our clients. Many of our current customers are changing their new condo developments to rentals for the time being and we need to be able to service that marketing need as well, “say Brandon Fishman, CEO.
As the housing industry continues to navigate the difficult market cycle, condo developers will continually have a need adjust their strategies based on sales and financing availability. Should this necessity result in changing a for-sale property to rentals, that does not negate the need for effective online marketing.
“These days we are approached frequently by current clients that are changing their developments to rental communities. NewCondosOnline.com is now positioned to adequately continue to market these former condominium properties as rentals, “says Brent Gleeson, President.
The company has been marketing international properties for some time but with an emphasis on Mexico, Latin America, and Central America. The new website places an additional focus on luxury condos and resort properties in Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Through existing media outlets, NewCondosOnline.com will be providing its online marketing services to new condo, resort, and apartment developments in countries like Dubai, India, and Italy.
About New Condos Online:

Here is a recent press release:
New Condos Online Inc. and J.P. King Auction Company have recently joined forces to market real estate auction opportunities for luxury condos and homes across the country. NewCondosOnline.com is one of the largest online marketing platforms for advertising new construction condos and homes; and J.P. King is one of the most respected auction marketing firms in the country having sold properties since 1915.
Today, J. P. King is not only the nation’s premier auction firm, but a brand that stands for the very finest in properties and marketing prowess. J. P. King has successfully thrived and become the premier auction marketing firm. J.P. King has sold luxury condos and homes in 49 states and is currently helping tackle the county’s inventory issues.
“Our companies realized the synergistic opportunity to leverage the online exposure of the NewCondosOnline.com platform. Through combined marketing efforts and co-branded web pages, NewCondosOnline.com and J.P. King are exposing these auctions to people all over the world,” says Brent Gleeson, President of New Condos Online Inc.
The efforts made by both companies strive to address a larger issue than simply marketing real estate auctions for homes and condos. The nation is experiencing a downturn in the housing market causing prices to fall and inventory levels to rise. Lending requirements for home loans have tightened as have restrictions on loans for new construction developments.
“Until we get a handle on the current inventory, banks will not be funding very many new projects. Our hope is to help address the inventory issues in the new construction and foreclosure sectors by providing strategic marketing services. Auctions have become a popular way to move inventory and give buyers a great value,” says Brandon Fishman.
J.P King and NewCondosOnline.com is currently marketing auctions in states such as Florida, Nevada, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, South Carolina, and many more. For more information on these auctions go to www.newcondosonline.com/real-estate-auctions/.
