It's called Gist. It provides a full view of all the contacts in your professional network by … (5 comments)

real estate marketing: Have Other Agents Taken Over Your Facebook? - 05/20/10 08:12 AM

real estate marketing: Speaking The Language of Generation Y - 05/03/10 04:10 AM
Generation Y is defined as the age group born just before 1980.

real estate marketing: So You Set Up a Facebook Fan Page, But Are You Really Capitalizing On It? - 04/21/10 07:42 AM
To compare your Facebook fan page (when used properly) to your standard business website would be like comparing a 3G phone to a pager.  Facebook is a bilateral experience to engage and respond, reach out to your community, become a part of new social circles, the possibilities are endless!   Keep it up to date. A dormant Facebook is actually worse than not having a Facebook at all.  If you don’t have fans, new content, and updated material, users will think you have nothing going on, and the lackluster impression will reflect on your professional image and leave your page visitors unconvinced.  … (6 comments)

One of Michael Russer’s recent blog posts, Refining Your Website for Greater Profits, addressed a very pressing question that we are often asked by our clients. That question is "How do I make my website work?"

We have many answers to these questions and they all center around one common theme/goal: Creating a Successful Online Presence.
