If you’re not 100% on point with the ways of the widgets, you can lose hours, if not days, trying to implement one of the most fundamental aspects of your website. No matter how excellent your content or how pretty your page, the purpose, let’s face it, is to show properties! When you’re first starting out with widgets, your time can be sucked up by what you don’t know. Yet, with experience and know-how, you can whip out those bad boys like nobody’s business! Spend some quality time with our widget master, Catherine, to learn how you can maximize your results while minimizing the time you invest.

When you don’t know what you don’t know, that’s the time to reach out to Jeff, our chief operating officer. When there are too many options, it can be paralyzing. Option overload inhibits your ability to make good decisions. This consultation is not about sales. In fact, many of our associates will tell you we care more about YOU than we do about the sale. Bottom line. We will not sell you what you don’t need.

When you’re unclear of your direction, uncertain about the possibilities, or curious about various avenues, Jeff is your man. He can pin down problem areas, highlight potential solutions, and point you in the right direction - even if that direction is away from our products and services!

Ballen Brands is a digital marketing company helping business professionals rise above the noise. But we didn’t set out with that as our destination. Our original path, and one that now aligns with our bigger picture, is in real estate.

As a real estate professional, Lori Ballen entered the arena at ground zero. As a newbie in the industry, Lori fell haphazardly into marketing her business online. In fact, she lovingly refers to that portion of her journey as failing forward. Through trial and tribulation, she floundered until she found her way. But once she found her way (or should we say INVENTED?) her way became known as The Ballen Method and is highly sought after by other real estate professionals. The Ballen Method is a digital marketing curriculum outlining and detailing all of the DYI methods Lori applied when growing her real estate business organically. And yes, she still practices those methods to this day.

You see, we did not develop a product and then search for an audience to whom we could sell it. Quite the opposite, we evolved with the needs of our peers to provide a high quality experience. This is why, even when you look, you won’t find a sales team at Ballen Brands. We have trainers, coaches, business developers, creatives, and techies. But no salesman.
