Use the items below to help take your business to new heights in 2013.

A part of using Social Networking is to increase your personal brand.  Here are two new, easy and free sites to help all agents out with that.

RebelMouse – This is a social media aggregate that takes your posts and creates an up to date site.

Vizify – Concept is similar to RebelMouse but the output is very different.  A nice clean design that is easy to edit.

The first item below is open to all agents.  MyRedGuru is currently exclusive to KW agents.

Real Estate – The Process Explained – As the popularity of DotLoop grows within not just Keller Williams, but the real estate industry as a whole, there is a great video on this link that explains the process.  The page also contains links to improving the use of DotLoop for you and your clients.

MyRedGuru – From John Pohly, this is one the best online resources on how to improve your SEO and lead capture capabilities.  Do what he shares with you and it will work! 


January 2011 Tech Tidbits

Fearless Predictions for 2011
Ok, I pulled out my crystal ball and came up with some tech predictions for 2011.  If I am wrong, oh well.  But what if I am right??
1. The Yahoo disintegration will continue.  Leadership is leaving, layoffs are occurring and programs/services are being shut down.  At the last second before closing up shop they will be purchased, allowing them keep going.  But I don’t think very well.
2.  Facebook and Google will continue their heavyweight battle in 2011.  Google releases in 2011 will underwhelm for the most part.  Facebook will suffer a major user revolt because of a new privacy data leak.  However, both will be able to right the ship by the end of the year.  Who will eventually win this battle?  Facebook.
3.  iPad is the device that finally brought tablet computing into the mainstream.  There will be many challengers to the iPad but all will fall to the wayside.  iPhone may be losing market share to Droids and Blackberry, but iPad will remain the undisputed champ. 
Bonus:  View a list of ten essential iPad apps from 1000wattconsulting that I added to my site.
4.  What will become the most overrated product of 2011?  3D TV.  The only thing that can save it?  Live sports.  But really, if you want to see the 3D visuals of a football game then get off the couch, grab a ball and go in the backyard.
5.  Finally, the biggest game changer for real estate…eEdge.  I was invited to the train the trainer session for eTransactions a couple of weeks ago in Austin.  This is an amazing, but simple program to use.  I’m looking forward to seeing the other elements very soon.  In the meantime, I am conducting some of the first eTransaction training sessions outside of Austin.  View the eEdge training dates on my home page.
Do you have your own tech predictions for 2011?  I would love to hear them.  Go to my new Technology Tidbits Facebook Business Page and add your predictions there!
