Kevin Oakley, Andrew Peek, and Jen Barkan explain why new community launches must be flexible and planned off of construction milestones and not launched around preset calendar dates alone. They discuss if builders should enact their escalation clauses as well as they give some examples of what other builders are doing.
Story Time (3:39)
- Jen has started the 75 Hard Challenge at her daughter’s request and also her husband has become an official prospect of a Motorcycle Club over the weekend. Plus the sold-out June Online Sales Academy is getting ready to start!
- Andrew recommends checking out a fun, consistent low-pressure, video content creator, John Morgan, who creates his videos while driving and telling stories in his car. Link to John Morgan’s videos here: facebook.com/watch/JohnMorganESQ
- Kevin wants to remind people that when planning on launching new communities or phases, marketing teams need to plan around construction milestones NOT specific dates on a calendar. It’s great to have target dates, but like anything in new home construction, you have to be fluid with community launch schedules.

Question of the Week (53:17)
- Do you believe you can teach/train someone to be a great marketer that has zero marketing experience and zero marketing education/background? Would you ever consider bringing on a new hire that shows great potential and a personality for learning the market but has absolutely zero experience?
