We kicked off the episode by answering a question on how to do live walk-through videos for clients using Facebook Live, Google Hangouts or Blab. One key to live video is the quality of your audio, so picking up an inexpensive SmartLav mic is a great way to immediately boost the quality of your live video and make people more likely to stick around and watch.
Then we bring in Alisa who shared some common misconceptions about credit, such as the fact that older bills, collections and bankruptcy might not affect your credit score as much as you think. Alisa also pointed that Realtors also suffer from these misconceptions because they miss out on the opportunity to show potential clients how to raise their credit score and may even mis-advise clients to wait who could qualify for a loan with a little help and guidance.
Alisa went on to share some key tips for raising your credit score such as:
How to use credit card payments, even secured cards, to “drown out the bad with good”
One cool trick to consolidate credit card debt and raise your credit score with TheLendingClub.com
How Alisa uses credit repair tips to stay in touch with her database and future clients
Why paying off old bills may actually HURT your credit score
Alisa also shared her unique background story, which included working in comedy talent booking, moving to HBO and eventually becoming a producer on Politically Incorrect w/Bill Mahr. Alisa took her love of comedy and good sense of humor with her into business, including speaking events and workshops, and she’s writing a book to spread her Color My Credit concepts.
