The 10 Things I Think (sorry Peter King – this was the best title!)

Posted in Uncategorized on March 7, 2011 by mtritthart

It has been nonstop busy for me before and after the Keller Williams Family Reunion event this past February in Anaheim.  Based on my travels across the US and Canada, training agents from all companies and areas, there is one fundamental thing I am seeing.  More and more agents are taking advantage of training and the technology tools available to generate a tremendous amount of business.  Business is picking up for those willing to invest in the time and effort.  Below is a list of the “Ten Things I Think” regarding some tools and techniques to help you generate more business. 

For you sports fans, the “Ten Things” is a complete copy, my homage, to one of the best blogs out there; Peter King’s MMQ on SI.com.

I Think….

1. Zopim.com is one of the best things that I picked up at Family Reunion.  I have been looking for a decent chat option for websites and this free chat widget is easy to install and to start communicating with potential clients.

2. Everybody should have a Facebook business page by now.  On my website I have the direct link to walk through the creation steps.  Facebook – Create a Business Page Official Facebook page for creating a business page.

3. Once you create a business page(s) you need to promote it.  On my site is the direct link on how to set up your Facebook.com/username.  You can complete this step once you have 30 people + liking your page.

4. Facebook – Essential Apps for your Business Page are some pretty nice apps for your business page.  Trick out your Business Page with these great tips.

Now for the KW specific items regarding eEdge

eEdge Training

5. There is still some confusion on the tools KW agents receive from eAgentc.  Your current eAgentc tools, such as your website, DO NOT GO AWAY!  They are more important than ever.  Everything from eEdge is in addition to what you have already and all of the leads from the KW sites will automatically feed into eEdge once you activate eEdge.  This gives agents the flexibility of using BOTH sites.  For example, one can be your primary site and the other developed into a nice site for your subdivision your farm, short sales, first time home buyers, etc.  Let me know if you need help in setting up the sites.

6. The power of the whole system is pretty decent for an initial rollout only 5 months in the making.  Once complete, it will be quite amazing.  Right now it is $314 a month worth of programs for $15 a month. 

7. The initial internet lead contact follow up system and automated email campaigns in eEdge are pretty strong and easy to use.

8. The area that needs the most improvement is the contact management aspect of the system.  But that is where YOU come in.  This is your product and you need to give your feedback to eedgesupport@kw.com.  It’s great to setup Facebook groups for discussion, but make sure your feedback is being heard in the proper channels so changes/improvements can be made.

9. That once everyone sees MyTransactions powered by DotLoop.com it will knock your socks office.  Every agent and broker, inside and out of KW, should look at making DotLoop a core part of their business.

10. That I am ready to help you with understanding of eEdge.  I am offering on site instruction, in depth webinars and help in developing your new eEdge websites.  Here are a couple of examples http://michaeltritthart.kwrealty.com & http://michaeltritthart.kwrealty.com of what you can do with the new sites. 

Contact me for further details on the training, webinars and site construction.  I am happy to help!
