A basic desk-top video production posted last year on ManufacturedHomeLivingNews.com anticipated some of the key findings of the recent IBHS hurricane wind study test. Frankly, the NBC News video has certain advantages and was of course done by big time news pros. But the two videos and related articles make a potent 1-2 punch for Manufactured Home sales professionals who are trying to win over someone 'on the fence' about our highly durable homes.
You can see this video, plus one that shows a
conventional house swept away in less than 10 seconds
by a tornado, both on the page linked here.
The comments back and forth that have come in as a result of this video have also been useful, some from people who thought we were full of it. We incorporated some of those into the video commentary on the NBC News broadcast of the IBHS hurricane wind test, along with facts from other research.
In market and sales, emotions compel, but reason is used to justify a decision. How many times have you had someone 'sold,' application, deposit and purchase order in hand…
…but then they went back to their place, told their friends or family that they were buying a 'mobile home' and all of a sudden, they are ready to back out? When you got them to open up, how often does the myth that 'manufactured homes blow away' in a tornado hit you in the face?
