Listen to Our Conversation with Jeff Turner on Social Media Edge

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

In case you missed it, our guest today on Social Media Edge was Jeff Turner, president of Real Estate Shows, serial entrepreneur, and Renaissance man.  Jeff also reigns in my mind as the most active listener I have met in person to date.

Much of our talk today revolved around effective ways to build community around a company or brand.  Obviously, if you are marketing yourself, YOU are the brand, so this has value for everyone.

I have a lot of respect for Jeff, and I was again struck by how sharp he really is.  To give you some idea of how well-respected he has become, Chris Brogan called him a "superhero" during our recent interview with him in November.  Yes, truly.

At any rate, I just wanted to encourage you to listen if you have a chance, as there are some terrific lessons therein, and it was a somewhat high-level discussion of social media and its potential.  You can also learn about Jeff's "missing ingredient" when people speak of building community.  If you have no idea what any of this stuff means, maybe you should be listening more often.  :-)


One of my favorite statements today was when Jeff spoke of how our behavior determines our values.  This is solid truth, in my humble opinion.


Give it a listen sometime:

Thanks for reading - and listening!

To my surprise it was a pleasure to listen to Jeff today.

His current attitude on tolerance and his new stance on transparency deserved much more time than you had. Put him on again.

Jason, live BlogTalk keeps eluding me.  Being a longtime subscriber to "Turner's Perspective" I know what you mean.  Your description "the most active listener" is so appropriate.  Thanks, I will listen to it soon.

Jason, our actions are who we really are. It is evidence of our values. I wish there were podcasts of these radio shows.

Heading on over to give it a listen right now Jason.

Anyone with "serial entrepreneur, and Renaissance man" in their title deserves to be heard!

Hi Jason.  First time caller.  Long time listener...

OK.  Just kidding. 

But I am listening for the first time.  I have tried before, but never seemed to have success...

Maybe I didn't try hard enough.:)

Anyway, you have just been announced.  I enjoy "Crazy Train" being your song...

I look forward to hearing the rest of the show.

Thanks for sharing,

It's a great idea in theory (and I think I even came up with it over ten years ago, but never got around to making it! ;) ), however, I'm wondering if the image would ever be hard on the eyes? Happy NYE!
