There’s always something to howl about

Social Media Webinar With Brian Brady & Jim Cronin

If you haven’t caught this message on the Real Estate Tomato, Jim Cronin and I will be hosting a social media webinar at 1PM (PST) – 2:30PM (PST), today:

Blogging ain’t enough if you want to put up big numbers on the scoreboard. I play this game to win so I’m all about scoring points.  Every day, I want to hit a grand slam, catch one in the end zone, score a hat trick, or hammer three-pointers.  I EXPECT to win, every single day, because of my social media strategy.

Five years ago, I started learning how to use social media to circumvent the pending “Do Not Call” legislation.  Since college, I always made my living on the telephone.  A typical day consisted of me rooting through my rolodex, with two-phones glued to each ear.   That damned “Do Not Call” list threatened my very existence

LinkedIn changed all that, in 2003.  I was invited to LinkedIn and found that I was the only mortgage guy in a roomful of well-earning tech folks, who owned homes.  Myspace came, in 2004.  I honed the rich demographic data to connect me with REALTORs by creating and promoting a group called MLS on Myspace.  Active Rain was a no brainer.  Facebook is the perfect combination to mix both consumer direct and professional referral platforms.

I’ll be walking, step-by-step, through the mechanics of :

1- setting up a profile on LinkedIn and Facebook

2- adding people you know to your sphere of influence on thos platforms

3- How to identify potential referral opportunities within your contacts’ contacts

4- How to engage the respective communities.

The webinar is free and has over 210 people registered.  There is room for 40 more.  If you can join us, register here.

      I was wondering if the webinar will work on a linux system, because I have linux.

      Only room for 5 more.

      And no, GoToWebinar does not support Linux, sorry.

      Darn I missed it. Any chance you will be posting a link so that it can be viewed after the fact? Would loved to have absorbed some of your insight.

      The webminar is a great idea. I should try it in my market to foreclosure and short sale properties. I will check it out.
