inman connect: What I Learned From Attending Conference All Month ... It's A Lot! - 03/22/11 01:28 AM
I am finishing up a very long month of being on the road at conventions.  I've talked to hundreds of agents and sat through many education sessions this month.  As I listened to agents, other vendors and presenters, one thing was very clear to me... whew, there is A LOT to think about when it comes to marketing! 
I thought back to when I first started in the real estate marketing space and the biggest question a marketer had to answer was whether you wanted to pay the up charge for your ad to be color.  Then websites hit the scene … (6 comments)

inman connect: Going To Inman San Francisco and Want To Save Money? - 06/07/10 08:09 AM
One of my favorite annual technology conferences is coming up next month in San Francisco, Inman Connect.  This year the featured speakers are from companies like: Reddit, Microsoft, Wall Street Journal Digital, Realogy, SimpleGeo and everyone's favorite- Craigslist. 
Inman is trying something new this year, with regards to technology based content specifically geared to Agents.  The day prior to the start of the main event, they are hosting Agent ReBoot. Agent ReBoot is actually going to be the start of a 12 city roadshow.  But by going to the one in San Francisco, you'd get the benefit of the day plus the full conference. 

inman connect: My Favorite Speaker At Inman Connect - Gary Vaynerchuk - Social Media - 01/22/09 12:04 AM
My favorite speaker this year at Inman Connect was Gary Vaynerchuk, who runs  He was a strong believer in the power of social media. 
Giving away information:
A few months ago at a difference conference, the keynote speaker noticed that people were recording him in the front row.  He asked them to stop.  Why?  He was getting paid for to deliver this valuable content! Gary noticed the same thing at Inman, he encouraged it.  Why?  The people who were recording were probably going to post it on YouTube, which will probably get viewed by people who Gary wouldn't have … (4 comments)

inman connect: 25 Websites To Help You Save Time And Money - 01/12/09 02:09 AM
Recently at each Inman Conference they have had a speaker highlight various websites to watch for various reasons.  Last week in New York, Jeff Turner put together a list of 25 websites that will help you reduce costs, save time, and communicate better. 
I like his last note not to forget about the old fashioned telephone or hand written note when addressing communication.  Two art forms that can be overlooked. 
Definitely worth a quick look through his list which can be found here:

Unfortunately I wasn't abel to attend RE Bar Camp last week, I only heard fantastic things about it. Luckily this video was put together which covers some of the highlights from the day.
