La Finlandia

Era Ottobre 2018 quando abbiamo deciso di lanciarci all'avventura, andando a visitare il terreno che tante volte avevamo visto in foto, incerti sul da farsi, con tante domande in testa e altrettanta paura di commettere un errore gigantesco.


La Finlandia era oramai la meta decisa, agognata e desiderata per la realizzazione dei nostri sogni futuri, ma la scelta del posto non fu cosi semplice. Primo, le uniche cose che sapevamo erano quelle imparate da libri e video su YouTube. Secondo, l'unica parola che conoscevamo in finlandese era “hyvää päivää” (buongiorno). Terzo, non avevamo la minima conoscenza della legislazione, burocrazia o tassazione nordica. Con il senno di poi, possiamo tranquillamente affermare che la dea bendata sia dalla nostra parte per molto tempo.


Decidemmo così di restringere la nostra ricerca nella Finlandia Centrale, per ragioni climatiche favorevoli all'istallazione delle serre che progettavamo di acquistare in futuro. Dopo inumerevoli e-mail e telefonate rifiutate, finalmente qualcuno ci degò di attenzione. Certo, ce lo dovevamo aspettare : un' italiana e un francese residenti a Londra, contattano un'agenzia sparsa nei boschi finlandesi tramite una mail scritta in inglese, con qualche parola finlandese copiata su google translate per impressionarli. Presumibilmente, avevano sentito odore di truffa.


Finalmente, veniamo contattati da un agente molto gentile e disponibile, ma soprattutto curioso e divertito dalla nostra storia. Gli spiegammo cosa cercavamo , e lui ci propose un terreno. Felici, confermammo che si trattava esattamente di quello che avevamo visto sul loro sito web. Concordammo una data e prenotammo i biglietti aerei per Helsinki.


La nostra Odissea iniziò a Londra: solo per raggiungere l' Aeroporto di Gatwick, abbiamo preso un bus, una metro e un treno. L'aereo partiva alle 7 di sera ed siamo atterrati ad Helsinki a mezzanotte. Non essendoci alcun treno in partenza fino alle 5 del mattino, avevamo deciso di dormire in aereporto, trovando inutile lo spreco di denaro in un hotel per sole poche ore. Alle 5:20 di mattina siamo saliti sul primo treno,preparandoci ad un meraviglioso viaggio di quasi 4 ore, tra immense conifere e laghi luccicanti alla luce del sole dell'alba. Arrivammo alla stazione di Jyväskylaä verso le 10 del mattino e, appena scesi dal treno, veniamo investiti da un'aria fresca, pulita e profumata. Altissimi alberi sempreverdi e un'esplosione di colori autunnali ci davano il benvenuto . Noi, così tanto abituati al rumore, alla vita frenetica e agli odori londinesi, ci sentivamo già a casa.

L'agente ci venne a prendere e percorremmo 40 minuti di auto tra alberi, foreste e laghi. Sembravamo due bambini a Disneyland, appiccicati ai finestrini, intenti a registrare più fotografie mentali possibili.
Arrivati alla proprietà, dopo soli 10 minuti di visita, ci siamo scambiati un' occhiata eloquente: doveva essere nostro. Un ettaro di terreno con due immense foreste, a pochi minuti a piedi da una spiaggetta sul lago. Unico problema: 4 vecchi ruderi da distruggere, pieni zeppi di cianfrusaglie e mobili, prima di poter costruire qualsiasi cosa. Ma noi, invece di vederci un ostacolo, abbiamo esclamato : ehi, legna gratuita da ardere!
Girammo estasiati tra i boschi, scoprendo delle vecchie arnie riciclabili, una cantina sotterranea e una costosa stufa a legna,di pietra, in ottimo stato.
Una volta congedati dal nostro amico fidato, con la promessa di risentirci nelle settimane seguenti, saltiamo nuovamente sul treno.


Preventivando di doverci trasferire inizialmente ad Helsinki, decidemmo di passare due giorni in città. E, da bravi turisti, la prima cosa fatta appena lasciate le borse in Hotel, fu stata quella di cercare un ristorante dove assaggiare salmone, renna e alce. Lo trovammo e , ad oggi, dopo due anni, resta il nostro ristorante preferito.


Helsinki
ci colpì fin da subito per la sua tranquillità, pulizia e organizzazione, oltre che per la sua bellezza. Eravamo felici all'ennesima potenza.
Durante il viaggio di ritorno, una sola consapevolezza: entro un anno, dovevamo trasferirci.

E così è stato.

Hey, this is Eric and I ran across chez-nousfinland.com a few minutes ago.

Looks great… but now what?

By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

Here’s an idea…

How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

You can –

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

CLICK HERE https://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Pretty sweet – AND effective.

Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

- Someone does a search and winds up at chez-nousfinland.com.

- They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

- And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

- Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

- There they go.

This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

But you CAN fix that.

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Strong stuff.

Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website chez-nousfinland.com…

I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

Like yours, many of them have great content.

But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

Here’s a solution for you…

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

CLICK HERE https://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

Good day,

My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

What for?

Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with chez-nousfinland.com definitely stands out.

It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…
