New to Active Rain? Welcome! We love to see new "sprouts" around here. All it takes is a little (Active) Rain before you bloom and flourish. And this post is for our technologically challenged sprouts. So let's get started right away. In the past week, I think I've read at least 20 blog posts, all by new Rainers who were excited about the "new" experience of social networking. ???? Whoa! We have some work to do!
If you don't know what Web 2.0 means, may I suggest that you learn ASAP!? But I'll make this easy for you. You're about to get the fast-track, Web 2.0 Syllabus!
I personally know many REALTORS who seem to be completely oblivous to anything involving technology, but for those agents, it was a choice they made many years ago. (A very stupid choice!) No matter who suggested it, or how many times it was suggested, they flat out refused to learn. As a result, they're now beyond clueless regarding todays' way of doing business. But that's OK. That just means more business for the rest of us; including YOU, even if up until this point you didn't know anything about Web 2.0 or SEO- (Bonus Info!). Because you're reading and learning! Now that the internet has become an expected way of doing business, there are quite a few real estate agents who, due to their lack of interest, may as well kiss their real estate careers' good bye. Unlike us!
Now for the name-dropping portion of this post. How tacky! Or not. Why? Because for this post, I'm handing out free information, and some recommended names of Web 2.0 and SEO experts here on Active Rain. Like...
- Jeff Turner, A technology... genius?-This is a great post for me to share with you. Jeff has a multitude of his own technology links embedded in this one post.
- Brad Andersohn, Tech... Guru?- In this post, Brad shares the top 100 Web 2.0 Applications and Sites for 2008.
- The Online Marketing Help Center Group- This is an Active Rain group. It contains posts from lots of Rainers. Most of them provide Search Engine Optimization (SEO) advice.
Now here are a few random SEO and Technology posts.
And here are a few of my own technology-related blog posts, to help you improve your real estate business.
So there you go. Now our new "sprouts" have some tools to "grow" their blogs into lucrative money-makers.
