Quirky Cordies

Quirky CordiesDon’t know what I ever did without this little gadget. No more fishing behind the desk for cords that fell. Pick a Quirky Cordies up at your local Target or Staples.

Found this matrix really helpful when identifying which features will be added to your existing Apple device with the iOS 6 upgrade.

Just updated 2 iPhone 4S and 2 New iPads to the latest operating system. Each upgrade had issues. My advice, backup before upgrading and do it when time and patience are abundant.

Weapon of Choice: Dashter

I have a new “weapon of choice” when it comes to curating relevant content and engaging with those in your network that find it extremely useful. It’s called Dashter. It’s a social content dashboard of sorts, but really…it’s much more!

Dashter was recently launched by some incredibly smart folks, one of which I’m lucky enough to call a friend…that would be Jeff Turner. I’ve known Jeff for many years as a well-voiced blogger, poignant speaker, innovative entrepreneur and he’s not too bad on the dance floor!

Now I could skip right to telling you how to use it. Which might get you to try it, for a bit, before throwing your hands up in frustration over the latest shiny object. Or, I could just tell you why I love this new tool, and why you should too. Which might actually get you to use it with delight or better yet… make it your own social content “weapon of choice”.

The Site That Heather Built

When I present, teach a class, or give a Webinar I LOVE providing examples and scenarios that demonstrate the strategy being discussed. One of my most favorite and extraordinary examples of raising the bar in real estate has always been Heather Elias.

Heather and I have known each other since WAY BACK…during the good ole RE.net days when blogging was all the talk! And it was shortly after starting in real estate in 2004 that Heather also started her blog, LocoMusings.com. A writer at heart, a bit of a techy, and a lover of her community…she shared it all with great posts and photos on a WordPress.org blog she set up herself.

Over the years, Heather’s business grew and so did her Website.  She recognized the need for more features to provide additional value to her community and potential clients.  So Heather added an IDX home search solution, as well as market data and trends.  Because Heather had selected the WordPress platform, she was easily able to add new features in the form of plugins.

Taking Action for Your Business Means You Have to Get Uncomfortable

If I were comfortable with technology I wouldn’t really be on my game! Technology, you know…the tools, apps, platforms, devices…and even the strategies involved to make them proficient change so rapidly you can’t possibly know all there is to know. So why do we make ourselves crazy and get overwhelmed before even trying…it’s just our nature, or perhaps it’s just an excuse.

I recently met an amazing speaker named Craig Zablocki who was extremely spontaneous onstage. He read the crowd well and rolled with their responses naturally. And being a lifelong learner you know I had to pick his brain! So after his presentation I asked him if he could give me some tips as I’m always looking to raise my game. He of course said sure…little did I know he was looking for some social media marketing help. So we decided to meet after our event and trade knowledge! [Read more...]
