Oct 12- Noon-1:30 - Main Street - Your Online Profile (MUST pre register with Allison or Cory) We'll look at the version of you that the public sees when searching for you on the web. Is your contact info correct and complete? Are you featured everywhere you wish to be? Where possible, is your digital marketing branded? Are you notified when you appear on the web?
Oct 17th - 10am - Main Street (if you can't be at Main Street for this we can give you info to log in remotely to this webinar) Introduction to FUSION Webinar
Oct 18 - noon - West Blvd Office.- iPad 101 - This is for folks who have just bought a tablet or have had one for a while but do not use it. This is a basic beginners look at using an iPad or other Tablet in your real estate business. You MUST pre register with Cory or Allison and you MUST bring your tablet to class. You will get more out of the class if you already have an account set up and know how to purchase and download apps on your tablet.
Oct 25- 930 Main Street - iPad Round Table - So you have an iPad or other tablet, have downloaded some apps but would love to hear how your colleagues are using their iPads
Market Leader, a website geared towards agents, sends me items of value from time to time; today I stumbled upon an archive of some of their material. Great stuff! While not nearly as complete as the offerings on RE/MAX University, there are lots of handy items and content here
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Now I need to find an app to help me lose the extra pounds I put on from all the eating. Seriously, there is an app for that
Do you use hootsuite
? I initially stayed away from the program for a few reasons (for example I think having your twitter posts and facebook posts the same every time is a mistake) but someone recently convinced me to give it a shot. I use or am part of 8 social media accounts, all of which I can run through a single log in at hootsuite. Your posts don't have to syndicate, but you have the option of doing so.
I always remember Verl Workman
saying at the 2010 Western Canada RE/MAX Convention that he spends no more than 15-20 minutes a day on social media and I hold myself to that same limit. Frankly, without hootsuite, I'm not sure I could do so.
Consumers don't believe you. They believe other consumers.
When you consider the outrageous claims advertisers have made over the years, it’s hardly surprising most people don’t believe adverts!
A staggering 70% of consumers will form their opinion aboutYOU based on an online review or recommendations!
While traditional ads like bus backs and newspapers are great for raising awareness of your brand, people need to hear how good you are from someone other than you!
If you’re using social media, it’s easy for your current clients and friends to spread the word about how good you are. Their opinions mean far more to the public than what you say in any ads. It’s an easy way to constantly stay in touch with hundreds potential clients, and to put your potential clients in touch with your satisfied clients.
