I was joined today by John Wake, Blair Warner, John Cunningham, Dave Keys, Karen Highland, Patsy Bailey, Dan Seim, Kristin LaVanway and Carra Riley for an informal discussion that centered on creative use of video.

If you take time to watch the video, you'll see that I featured a hilariously creative video by Kristin LaVanway called 5 Ways to Keep Your Real Estate Agent Sober. I also talked with John Wake about his Best of … (1 comments)

google: Update Your Website - Watch Your Metadescriptions and Keywords..... - 10/19/13 04:17 PM
Real estate sales tend to slow down a bit in the fall, so it's a great time to take on some of those neglected projects that you've been putting off.
Give Your Website a Facelift
For me right now this means updating the content on my website. One good way to give a website a boost is to go through the pages, updating the old ones with new information, and creating some new ones too.
That's what I've been doing over the last week or so, I've been going through the pages I've built for the different high school districts in … (40 comments)

google: Google+ PageRank and More...A Veritable Treatise on the Subject - 03/31/13 10:35 AM
You've been hearing all the noise about Google+ for some time now, but maybe you, like other Realtors I know, are reluctant to embark on yet another "time-wasting social network?" 
On the one hand, I can't blame you, there are many demands upon a busy real estate agent's time. But I have to wonder, since you are already here on ActiveRain dedicating time towards building your internet presence, why are you ignoring the excellent opportunity that Google+ presents?
Maybe you haven't heard about it? I doubt that.
Maybe you don't believe it? I could understand that, at least I could about … (10 comments)

google: Use Protection - Use a Buyer's Broker - 12/20/12 12:43 PM
The Title of our Real Estate Hangout on Google+ today was "Use Protection-Use a Buyer's Broker." 
Home buyers who use buyer's brokers, also called buyer representatives or buyer's agents, benefit greatly from the valuable experience that their real estate agents have. From assistance in finding the right lender for a specific situation to assistance finding homes that may not be listed for sale on the MLS to negotiating effectively, buyer's brokers work hard to serve their buyer clients and earn their commission.
Today's Hangout featured ActiveRain members Bryan Robertson, Jeff Dowler and Lori Cain. If you want to learn more, please watch our short, 10 … (6 comments)

google: What Does a Google Hangout Look Like? - 11/27/12 11:24 PM
Yesterday I had the pleasure of participating in a Hangout with Bob Stewart, Chad Hyams, Eric Proulx and two other AR members. I'm going to post it here so you can see what a Google Hangout looks like.
 

 
Google Hangouts are automatically recorded and posted by YouTube if you choose. So in effect, Hangouts are a really cheap way to produce video for your YouTube channel. 
Can you think of any creative ways to use this great tool that Google has given you? If your answer is no, then I think you're just not trying hard enough. And … (3 comments)

google: Google+ Shared Circles Great Way to Add Followers? - 11/18/12 09:30 AM
Are Google+ shared circles a great way to add followers or not? That was the crux of the discussion several of us ActiveRainers participated in today.
Before we get into that discussion, let's back up a step and talk about the first step: what are circles and how do you create them?
 
Creating Google+ Circles One of the cool features of Google+ is the ability to create circles, that are like groups of friends, so that you can be very specific directing who you are posting to and who you are reading. 
Let me explain.

Do you think Google+ is a ghost town? Nothing could be further from the truth. The conversation is very active there, if you know the right people to follow.
A lot of us 'Rainers are trying to figure out Google+ best practices these days. There have been quite a few really interesting conversations there over the last week or so.

google: Creating and Sharing a Photo Gallery on Google Plus - 10/30/12 03:31 PM
There's been a lot of talk on ActiveRain lately about Google+. Anyone looking to stay on top of their internet presence should be participating on Google's very own social network. Why? Well, I'm already seeing my face appear next to search results featuring my Google Authorship photo and, even better, I'm seeing articles that I've shared on Google+ coming up in my personalized search results in Google search (and better yet, so are my connections).
If you're interested in Google Plus, surely you have you read Bill Gassett's featured post about Google Plus by now, right?

Can you imagine how much you would have missed if you had set up your ActiveRain profile but never returned to write a post, make a comment or take time to connect with anyone? You would have missed out on 99% of the benefits that ActiveRain provides!    The same thing could be said about those of you who created a Twitter profile and auto-tweeted your blog posts without ever returning to Twitter to talk to the people, share their tweets or develop a following.
