Flickr Foto Fun Udemy Course with Lola Audu, Flickr for Networking and Business

Here's to a Happy New Year and new opportunities to expand your network and business. 

I just finished creating a NEW online marketing course designed to show real estate entrepreneurs how to maximize their listing photographs and marketing efforts to a whole new audience through the Flickr platform.  The idea for this course came out of a REBAR Camp that was held in Grand Rapids last year.  I was contacted by Udemy, an online educational platform, to provide real estate related coursework.  I decided to create my first course on Flickr because many real estate professionals are unaware of and therefore not taking advantage of the enormous potential of this FREE network - the worlds' largest photo factory!

In real estate, we know images sell product! We've all seen buyers opt out of seeing a home based on poor presentation online.  Understanding how to capture your audiences' attention through an arresting image is one of the most important aspects of service that effective real estate professionals provide.  Failing to do so can cost your client time and money! 

This one hour course is designed to get you up and running on the platform quickly. It will also help you avoid some of the pitfalls that can prematurely diminish your reach and influence.  It's currently offered for FREE for a limited time on the Udemy platform to members of Active Rain.  The course will provide value to anyone who wants to understand how to use images in today's' online market place.  Udemy is a network that provides educational programming from business professionals and experts around the world. Sign up is easy and Free!

Here are some course highlights:

*Learn how to explode the reach of your Open House & Event Advertising

*Fast Track your listing highlights & area photographs to the  First Page of Google

*Optimize your proven knowledge of your local real estate market

*Use visual images & video to galvanize your audience to action!

 

If you're not familiar with Flickr, here are some facts:

*51 Million Registered Users

*80 Million Unique Visitors

*20 Million Unique Visitors from the United States

*4.5 Million DAILY uploads

I'd like to invite you to check out the course for FREE!  It may be one of the best one hour investments of time you can make in 2013!

Check out the course!  I think you will be surprised at how much you can do on this network.  I found that my hits on the Flickr platform increased significantly as I began to understand the power of the network.  It can be an excellent supplement to your blogging efforts.

Ritu, it can be a very powerful medium if used properly.  One of the examples in the course is about how NASA is using Flickr in a very effective way.

Lola,

This was good timing, and thanks for the link.  It is so true that many people don't utilize Flickr the way they could, I am very curious about your course.  Remember that Flickr group you and I started back in "07 the one for bloggers :)

I remember there used to be a pretty active group of Rainers on Flickr. Going to revisit that this weekend and see if I can find your Udemy course, too.
