Often, when preparing for a talk, I “learn” something new or have an insight that sticks with me. For this talk, it was definitely that people looking to break into the business world should feel comfortable “over-promising” based on their current knowledge and then work their behind off to deliver on lofty goals!
Anyway, I clearly don’t go to slideshare.net nearly often enough, because I just visited the site and noticed that the presentation I created for that event has over 10K views! Woot! Glad to see so many folks found it useful!
On a related note, that talk at CLU brought in some awesome interns this past summer/fall and I’m back on the hunt for some more! If you know anyone interested in a crazy cool internship opportunity in either online marketing or technology development (developers!), send them my way! I’ve been interviewing people for the past few weeks and we’re sure to have another great crew this spring!
Even better than the slideshare presentations, NAR just published the video recording of my Getting Started with WordPress presentation. If you’re interested in learning about why and how to get involved in using WordPress for your business website, I did my best to explain here:
It’s been a busy few weeks since returning from New Orleans and I’m just now getting around to posting my presentations on Slideshare.
I was pleasantly surprised at the interest in my talk on social media optimization… It was one of my simpler presentations as I focused on only two concepts:
The second presentation was the opening session for the Real Estate WordPress Camp that I helped organize with NAR… and what a great event that turned out to be. Some great speakers and I heard nothing but great feedback from the audience. My presentation for this event was really just meant to describe how professionals can use WordPress as their online marketing hub… and in particular how it can fit into the various elements of an agent’s business cycle. Here it is:
And it all couldn’t have happened without Linsey Planeta putting a ridiculous amount of time and passion into the day. She rocks!
One of the things I most enjoyed about helping to organize BuzzRE was organizing the presentations… I had every speaker email me their presentation in advance so I could fit them into one solid presentation that didn’t feel like it was jumping around too much. I’m pretty darn proud of the final product and super-happy to share it with you via slideshare.
What a great day! It really is awesome to see so many folks get excited about implementing advanced strategies and websites. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out this page of advanced real estate websites.
