Get Googleized

Starting in November, all KW agents are getting “Googleized.”  KW Agents will receive access to 4 Google Apps for Business tools in the initial roll-out:  Gmail, Talk, Drive and Calendar.  But Google tools work for everyone.  What about you and your business?  Are you Googleized?  Google has over 65 apps currently in the Google arsenal. 


In addition to the powerful functions mentioned above, Google provides a ton of valuable tools to real estate agents and other businesses.  Check out some of these on the Google page on  Highlights from the page include, Authorship, Boomerang, Alerts, Voice and so much more.  Take advantage of these FREE tools and more to grow your business.   BONUS TIP:  Check out the Google training videos on to help get you going with some of the great Google products. 

Do You Advertise on Craigslist?  You Better Read This….
Just in the past few days Craigslist has started to make a major change to how an ad will show on their site.  This is a staggered roll out; so some are not affected yet.  But soon all will be seeing the change.

What’s the change?  We don’t know the full scope yet.  But look at the image above.  You will no longer be able to add HTML code into your ads.  This will block photos, font changes and other HTML items from appearing.  It will also greatly affect various companies and their posting tools, making them ineffective in their current state.  Market Leader is aware of the changes and is looking at their Craigslist posting system to adhere to the new updates. 

If you use Craigslist you need to stay on top of the changes.  Contact the company you are using to help post your ads and they should be able to share updated, best practices with you.  Please remember that tech changes all the time and sometimes you have to roll with it!
