Selling Soulfully with Jennifer Allan


Announcing MY Website with a Scavenger Hunt!

AUGUST 2, 2007

As promised in an earlier blog, I'm announcing my new website with a scavenger hunt. DON'T participate in this game if you tend to disagree with most of what I say... you'll only get annoyed.

Okay... here are the rules.

Below are ten questions, the answers to which can be found on my Brand New Website

The first five people who correctly answer all ten questions will win a course of their choice a SWSU and yes, that includes the flagship courses of Your First Year... From Day One and The Seduction of Your SOI (valued at $499 and $259 respectfully).

The next five will win the just-released (yesterday, in fact) CD audio collection of my books, Sell with Soul: The Smart Agent's Guide to an Extraordinary Career in Real Estate and The Seduction of Your SOI (a $49 value).

Everyone who enters will win the downloadable audio of The Seduction of Your SOI.

Send in your answers to Please forward this blog to anyone you think would be interested.

DO NOT POST the answers here!!! But your feedback and questions are certainly welcome!

Ready?  Here are the questions:

  1. What is the SWSU Mission Statement?

  2. How many courses are currently included in the Your First Year... From Day One program?

  3. Which course is a pre-requisite for membership in the Alumni Club?

  4. Name three benefits of membership in the Alumni Club.

  5. If you win this scavenger hunt, which course would you choose as your prize? (note, you don't have to choose right away if an upcoming course sounds more interesting to you than the ones currently available)

  6. What course materials are included in Your First Year... From Day One?

  7. Describe the Satisfaction Guarantee

  8. What book inspired SWS University?

  9. Which courses are available TODAY? (Hint, you'll have to find the "Catalog of Online Courses" which will take a little digging.)

  10. In your own words, what does "The Seduction of Your SOI" mean?

 BONUS... Find two typo's and/or erroneous/non-working links.

Starting..... NOW! GO!

(remember to email me the answers, do not post them here, duh!)



Please feel free to play the Scavenger Hunt game, even though it's technically "over." I had so much fun with all the responses, I didn't want it to end!

 Jennifer, there's trouble in River City.  I sent you an email for the contest at 7:00 pacific, and it got bounced back.  Here's the failure notice.

Mike - It is  sellwithsoul not sellswithsoul. You have an extra "s" after sell.  Go submit and good luck!:)

The site looks fabulous.  Your hard work is evident in the descriptions and the content of the site.  Congratulations and Good Luck!!!!

Whoa! When I got back from the Doggie Cleaners I had 174 emails!

You guys are a funny bunch and I truly appreciate all the supportive comments.

This is way too much fun. Like I said... keep them coming. Everyone's a winner at Sell with Soul University! (ick, that's a little too cheesy for me... ah well)

WOW - just stumbled onto your group today - LOOKING forward to learning MORE!!! I love games!!
Posted by Susie Roscoe, Real Estate Specialist | Brandon, FL (Signature Realty Associates) about 13 years ago


Cute way to promote your group, lady...... a competition based on people investigating your courses and principles of the school you run.....

If they are not interested in the course(s) after answering the 10th question, you would not want them anyway, hmm?

Passion and excitement make things happen...... if they are not enthused about the school and the courses, they will not make good students!

Way to go.... I'm impressed!!

wow!  Did you get a great response to this Jennifer!  Hope your launch is going as wildly successful as can be!

Thanks to everyone who played my Scavenger Hunt Game with me! As many of you noted, I kind of messed up on the link I sent to all players with the Seduction of Your SOI audio download. If you weren't able to download it, please send me an email and I'll shoot you the CORRECT link!

I also got a ton of feedback that my website wasn't... "salesy" enough. So, *sigh* I spent the weekend making it more so and... I REALLY like it now. Wouldja' mind checking it out for me and giving me your thoughts? Just the home page - take ya just a minute. I'd really appreciate it.


My email:

Have a terrific week, y'all!

I think this has been the most creative idea I've seen so far.  Sorry I missed it.  Looks like it was great fun.

As you know, the spirit of Active Rain is to help each other.  The best way that I've found is by hitting each others' website, to improve internet search rankings.  I checked out your website, and besides your theme "sellwithsoul," I also liked your picture, very professional looking!  If you have a second, please reciprocate the favor by checking out my website at

Great idea, Gregg! Consider it done. So, who is the audience for an appraiser website? Just curious - lenders? sellers? attorneys?
