Every week I give a short presentation at my office meeting on technology. Many times I provide tips to the other agents focused on the agent achieve software that Lyon Real Estate provides to everyone in the company. I have decided for tomorrow I'm going to talk about Google Calendar.
The idea came to me when I realized that I had forgotten to enter November's floor schedule in my phone and I had to call the office to see if I was on the schedule for today. Luckily I wasn't but I started thinking how nice it would be if all the agents in the office could acceess a master calendar that could list floor agents, events, education activities etc. All without calling and bugging the office.
Google Calendar fits that bill and coming from google it is free. We'll see if this is something that the office will find useful, but at least for me it would have been just as fast to quickly look up the office calendar than to call the office.
While this is one way Google Calendar can help the office agents can also put an online calendar to work some ideas could be open houses, home buying seminars, community events, the possibilities are limited only by the user's imagination. You could have a link to your public calendar on your website or blog and then tell everyone to look up events through your website.
