"The key to any successful website is not just giving information about your business, but in capturing your visitors by providing information that benefits them!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I have to have an HSR Website to take advantage of this program? Yes and No. Yes, if you do have an HSR website, you must have our upgraded Wordpress website for this to work since it will not work with our old html websites. No, you don't need to have an HSR website if you have a website that you can easily access and add the html we give you on your own. As long as you have access to your own website pages, this Email Marketing Product will work for you!
I understand that you set up the iContact email marketing account, autoresponders, lists and signup forms but do you also add those to my website? No. we do not have access to your website, nor are we priced to do that kind of additional set up (remember we are charging less then if you were to do this on your own but setting up the account side of things which takes time). Similar to our Wordpress website tutorials, we have a 7-step video tutorial process that walks you through your website and report set up and takes about 2 hours total:
1. Choosing and customizing a gorgeous header
image for your business
As you can see, it's fairly simple set up on your part and the best kind of marketing activity you can do!
Can I import my current contact list to the iContact account but set it up so they don't get the autoresponders? Absolutely! At the click of a button you can upload all your current contacts to a new list that does not have the autoresponders attached to it OR you can upload them, or add them one-by-one to one of the autoresponder lists, so that they do get your follow-up emails....you have complete functionality!
Does the iContact system create newsletters? Absolutely! They have a "Message Builder" program filled with templates that allows you to create a myriad of newsletter, open house announcements, etc..
How is the technical support on this? HSR is your contact until your account is set up and iContact has an amazing technical support line that answers right away, is US based and one of the primary reasons we chose iContact as the email provider.
I already am using an email
marketing system like Constant Contact but REALLY love what you are
offering! Do you have any plans to package the information for
those who already have an email management solution they like? I
wish we could but since there is so much setup on the HSR end with
iContact, and we can't know all the other systems out there to do
that for others, I don't think it would be possible.
I noticed the video mentioned that in the first 30 days any email inquiry to each of the signup forms you create will receive 5 follow up emails over 30 days...do you have anything planned for after that? Or any plans for creating a system to send to our existing data base throughout the year? We set up the autoresponders to each have a 5 email series but YOU can easily add to that with whatever information you like (and we encourage it!) All you do is hit the "Add New Message" button, it's very simple. iContact allows you to easily send newsletters and announcements, so I recommend you send a monthly newsletter to all your list contacts. HSR may create a monthly example newsletter in the future if there is a demand for it but I think newsletter should be personal.
Is the iContact account in my
name, so my contacts would be mine personally, to manage and
control? ABSOLUTELY! We create an account in your
name that you have complete Administrative access to, so you control
the entire account and own all of it's contacts and contents!
You can have up to 2000 contacts in your account which should be
more than enough.

The HSR Training Program is a wonderful program that gives you lots of details on how to set up your business. I loved the fact that you did not have to reinvent the wheel; all the forms, checklists, contracts, sell sheets, pricing suggestions, everything is provided. I especially loved the videos. Since this is a visual business it really helped me to grasp the concepts. I signed up for the marketing package also and got beautiful business cards, postcards and stationary in a very timely manner. The fact that they have a website framework already set up for you is invaluable. With their detailed instructions on how to customize, your website is up in no time. I can't thank HSR enough for all of their support!
"Just wanted to drop you a quick note of appreciation for all you have done to make HSR such a first class endeavor. It has been the best investment I have ever made! The training was fun, comprehensive and chock full of ideas, inspiration and major advice. I shopped around and read every book and listened to all the competition and HSR is head and shoulders above the rest and to think you are just getting started!"
Audra's hard work in putting together the HSR Training program shows in the amount of information and number of contacts she provides in the materials. Having an interior design background, the website is continually updated with the latest news and the continued support throughout the course is very helpful.
I would absolutely refer HSR for anyone considering home staging &/or redesign. I researched numerous programs before I signed up, and I definitely feel that I am being well prepared to start my new venture.
