Week of 10/26/09- Real Skillz Freebie Picks- Free Online Reads and Real Estate Marketing Resources for Real Estate Agents and Real Estate Companies- Issue II



  • 10 Ways of Using Posterous at Work or Home- Ideas on using Posterous for collaboration, private blogs, image hosting and more.  I like this article because it puts a focus on how to truly benefit from using this microblogging platform, rather than trying to make posterous another Wordpress/Typepad/Blogger platform.
  • Is Email Marketing Endangered?- Whitepaper from ExactTarget that explains the increase in usage of Email, the real threats posed to email, and how to capitilize on the opportunities email presents in a Web 2.0 marketing world.
  •  Do the Hard Work for Your Readers- A blog post that discusses how doing your homework and writing for your readersreaps rewards by increased exposure and increased blog subscribers.  This is a quick and simple read with a powerful and practical blogging message.
  • Get Your Brand On Every Social Network with KnowEm- An article from Website magazine about KnowEm, A Web 2.0 tool that allows you to scour the net for your username/brand and see if it is available on social networks (broken into categories).  KnowEm will allow you to create a profile and it will then add you these networks and secure your brand name for $99 OR there is a free D.I.Y. version that will check to see if your name is available and then allow you to create your profile on these networks. 
  • Twenty Online Web Apps for Learning- Aside from listening, learning is my favorite marketing tool.  This blog post from Jeanne Meister of New Learning Playbook discusses twenty web 2.0 tools for learning.  Great topic, great tools, and I pocketed three tools I hadn't heard of that I could use to help carry out my online marketing strategy.
Upcoming Real Estate Marketing Discussion- Time Magazine posted a Special Report-"The State of the American Woman". Talking posts and a discussion on this Report will be posted on the Real Skillz Business Page has been moved to Tuesday November 3, 2009.  Bring your opinions to the Real Skillz Facebook Wall**

Susan- Thank you...I felt along time ago like I had been adopted into this industry, by my 10th year or so I  knew I was in it for the long haul.

Jeff- It really did, that blog post was spot on and it's so funny that I found it/it found me because that was a big realization in my blogging journey....much as there were things that maybe I wanted to talk about first for business sake I needed to talk about what my readers wanted to know.

Rebecca - great information. I used to use another site to check for my usernames but it'd no longer up. I actually like KnowEm better, thanks for the tip!

We also use Posterous and have been on it for quite awhile. I love it for posting photos from my phone to Twitter and Flickr. It's so easy to use. I also love subscribing to other Posterous blogs from people I know and seeing all of their random photos and posts. It's fun because it's not as structured as a traditional blog although I guess it could be.

Monica- I really like this KnowEm site and it makes so much sense. I have blocked time to do it. 

I don't currently have a posterous site because I want to remain focused on some other efforts and I also want my posterous blog identity to serve a purpose....in other words have a theme, and I am tied to many other projects right now.  I do have an account and have explored the funtionality extensively but that is it.
