[updated] NAR Presentations on WordPress and Social Media Optimization

*** UPDATED ***

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:

  1. How you can get more value out of Facebook once you understand Networking Engine Optimization (NEO) and
  2. How you can get value out of tools like Gist by focusing on building and enhancing the relationships that are most important to your business.

Here’s the presentation in full:

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:

Interestingly, in the last few days, I’ve started to nail down more than a few speaking engagements for this upcoming spring. I’m always interested in educating professionals on how to get the most value out of their online marketing, so if you know of someone looking for a speaker, don’t hesitate to reach out!

  2. Great presentations. Thanks for sharing them with those of us that didn’t make it to New Orleans.

  3. Thanks for sharing. For me, it’s either go to Inman’s event or NAR’s, but being able to access relevant info that I missed by not going becomes increasingly important. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That’s crazy, I was at Nardisgras and I missed this. Kudos for putting it online.

  5. I appreciate you posting it. Time constraints prevented me from making it to NAR’s event in New Orleans.

  6. Hi Dustin, thanks for taking the time to post the slide show. Hurts to have missed this one. The ‘Why not WordPress?’ segment was particularly interesting. Would have loved to hear this presentation.

  7. Thank you for putting this online, very informative Dustin!

    1. You’re very welcome! Let me know if you have any questions!

  8. Dustin,

    I’m glad I stumbled into this post before my talk for local business owners. I have a lengthy talk about WordPress and it needed “Meat”.
