CRT looking for social networking experts to…

submit proposals for a special session at NAR in Orlando!

I have lots of ideas, but I think it could be particularly interesting to submit a proposal for a discussion along the lines of “learning from success.” My idea would be to show a few different examples of how people are generating leads by using (non-blogging) social networks like LinkedIn, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, etc. and tie everything together in some general themes of what it takes to be successful.

I have enough good examples in my back pocket to put a presentation together, but I could ALWAYS use better examples… Are you an real estate agent or mortgage broker who has found a way to tap into a particular online community who wouldn’t mind sharing your story? Let me know!

  1. Hey D!

    Yeah, I have few in my front pocket 🙂

    Shared a bunch golden nuggets at a blogging and social media class I taught along w/ Joe for LIBOR – The Long Island MLS in New York yesterday. Yes, there were some pretty loud oohs and ahhhhs from the audience…..

  2. Dustin and Rudy, why don’t the three of us submit a panel proposal?

  3. There are plenty of case examples to look at- most of them revolving around SEO techniques around communities or online word of mouth campaigns. Point2’s Facebook app would be a good example of a quick adoption item, as well as many of the realtors who have amassed 10k+ mailing lists on sites like Myspace. I’ve even seen a few pop-up on too.

    Perhaps a brainstorm conference call. E-mail me at my new address if you want to catch up!


  4. Jeff: When I read Rudy’s comment earlier today, my initial reaction was… I wonder if we can do something together. And then, when I saw your name on a comment, I immediately though, I wonder if we can get Jeff involved!

    The fact that you suggest that thought in the comment makes it all the better!

  5. Barry: I’d love a brainstorm (and to find a bit more about what you’re up to these days!). Email is sent!

  6. I just like sticking my head in here and watching you guys work together… 😉

    If you need anything from a guy in the trenches, just shout!

  7. I would love to have some insight as well about social networking.

  8. Tracey,

    I’m hoping that Rudy, Jeff and I will be able to put something fun together or NAR, but that is still a ways off… Much sooner (end of May), Jim and I will be having another 4RealzEd event in Los Angeles! 😉

  9. […] the way, this presentation started with a simple blog post from CRT that I picked up and was so lucky to have Jeff and Rudy join me in taking on this adventure.  This presentation is going to be […]
