Promoting Your Business With My PR Genie - 06/30/11 01:52 PM
When I was younger, I used to watch "I Dream of Jeannie" with Barbara Eden on TV. Astronaut Major Nelson finds Jeannie's bottle in the sand after coming back to Earth on a space mission. When he rubs the sandy lamp to get a better look at it, out pops Jeannie to do his bidding. Haven't you ever wanted to have your own genie that would take care of your every wish, especially when it comes to your real estate business? I found one with My PR Genie. As business people, we all understand how important it is to get your (6 comments)

Stand Apart From the Crowd With FavIcons - 06/16/11 05:03 PM
In today's competitive real estate market, whatever you can do to make yourself stand apart from the crowd is good, right? Put your name and photo on the marquee with FavIcons. FavIcon simply stands for"Favorite Icons". If you're like me (and lots of other people on the internet), you use bookmarks to tag your favorite websites. The FavIcon is the little photo that shows up right before the URL in your bookmark window. You can add your own little FavIcon to your website to set it apart from any other bookmarked websites your client may have. FavIcons are very simple to (13 comments)
Happy Fathers Day, Dad! - 06/15/11 03:00 PM
Father's Day is great time for kids of all ages to treat Dad to a day all his own. Let's not forget, it takes two to Tango!! I've watched fathers of today evolve into having a stronger role in their children lives. From taking walks in strollers, shopping, hanging a diaper bag on their shoulder and, WOW, even changing diapers?? I know, I didn't get that luxury back in the days; but that's just me. There comes a moment when a father realizes that Father's Day is more than sending his dad a card. It's about HIM, too! It's up to (8 comments)
Plus One, Please - 06/09/11 04:50 PM
By now, you're probably VERY acquainted with Facebook's "like" button. When one of your Facebook friends posts something, you simply click "like" and it shows up on your profile as well as those of all your friends. It's a great way to share information with other friends and tell them, "Hey, check this out!" Well, Google has come up with something similar that also gives you a heck of a boost in the Google juice department...the Google +1 button. All you need is a Google profile, the correct code and you'll soon be saying "Plus One, please". What IS Google +1? (10 comments)
