Map Your Listings on Facebook - 04/26/12 11:57 AM
I love finding out new ways to help my real estate clients increase their business presence on the internet. I recently attended an all-day Facebook seminar that was full of some great and quite valuable information that I'll definitely be implementing in the promotion of my own clients' businesses. One of the things I have found from investigating real estate business promotional opportunities through social media is this great app that allows you to publicize and map your listings on Facebook. FaceIt Pages has made creating a customized timeline tab simple. After you have created your account, click on the "Create a New Page Tab", add a catchy title for (0 comments)
No More Shoeboxes! - 04/19/12 01:21 PM
I know that the 2011 tax filing season just ended, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't start planning for next year. Organization is key in just about every aspect of your life. This has never been more true than when it comes to your real estate business. As a busy real estate professional, you're always on the go. There are meetings to attend, clients to meet with, lunches to go to, open houses to prepare for. The laundry list of things a REALTOR® has to deal with seems to be never-ending. Instead of stuffing your shoeboxes with receipts for the accountant (2 comments)
Why Real Estate Pros Need LinkedIn - 04/12/12 01:28 PM
If you're not on LinkedIn, you're missing out on a very valuable piece of internet real estate. LinkedIn is the largest network for business professionals on the internet today as well as one of the fastest-growing social networks available online. Why do real estate pros need LinkedIn as part of their business marketing arsenal? I'm glad you asked.
First, LinkedIn allows you to increase your visibility. The more you get your name out there, the more likely a potential client will find you. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn is strictly for business professionals. This is where you WANT to flaunt your (4 comments)
Set Your Blogging to Automatic - 04/06/12 01:20 PM
Last week I talked about Working Your List as a way of keeping in touch with all your real estate contacts in order to help generate business. Another crucial cog in the real estate business wheel is creating and maintaining a blog. Giving your contacts something they can really sink their teeth into will not only make you stand out from a form newsletter sent from someone else, but will also keep them interested in receiving further tidbits from you in the future, rather than hitting that ugly "unsubscribe" button. I can hear it right now. "I am a busy REALTOR® (2 comments)
Got 20 Minutes? Here's a Real Sweet Tooth Solution - 04/02/12 12:36 PM
When I was much younger (ugh), I loved desserts; the sweeter, the better. As I've aged (ugh again), I enjoy the decadence without so much sweetness. Yesterday I was craving a dessert and decided to go through my refrigerator and freezer to see what I could come up with. Here's the result. And, it only took about 20 minutes - all of which was baking time. I call this dessert (drum roll, please) Cherry Cheesecake Pastry What You'll Need: 1 package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells (6 in a package) 1 8oz brick cream cheese 1/4 cup sour cream 1 tblsp.
