    Connecting at #REplus22

    Starting two weeks ago, I decided to brush the cobwebs out of my blogging fingers by making sure to post something fresh every day… Because I’m fascinated by the growth (and potential) of green hydrogen, I’ve been focusing my energy by doing a deep dive on that industry. Interestingly, the green energy community is quite […]

  • I miss blogging.

    While the terms of service changes (and reversals) over at Instagram didn’t bother me much (they probably should have bothered me more), the changes did inspire me to have a few conversations around where original content should live. It seems the WordPress mobile posting and syndication tools have come a long way in the past few […]

  • Networking Relentlessly

    Just posted an article over on Credibility Insights based on a presentation I gave at CLU yesterday where I was actively encouraging the students to network relentlessly. Check it out: New Graduates: Network Relentlessly to Land Your First Job

    No doubt I’ve got all kinds of theories on how to measure online influence, and even went so far as to outline them a bit in this comment, but for now, I just thought I’d just share my excitement that Sarah Needleman of the Wall Street Journal wrote a great article about one of the […]

  • Most Influential Twitter People In Real Estate

    Earlier today I saw Irina Netchaev tweet about how Mike Mueller, Jeff Turner,  Jay Thompson and I were some of her “favs”, so I couldn’t help but be curious what she was referring to… Her link sent me to the type of poll that everyone loves to hate:  A popularity contest where the “community” is able […]

  • NEO, or the Study of How to Optimize Content for Social Networks

    At a recent conference someone asked: Understanding Facebook’s algorithms similar to understanding how SEO helps explain how Google ranks sites? My response? EXACTLY! And I even give those algorithms a name: NEO

  • “How likely is this person to send me business?”

    Lately, I’ve been putting a huge focus on thinking through how we (as professionals) can use social networking tools to build and strengthen our relationships… and in particular, our relationships with people who are key to growing our business (i.e. our “sphere” or “referral network”). And this has led me to my new favorite tool, […]

  • Screw consumers… Let’s use internet tools to do what REALTORS do best!

    I gave a presentation last week in Portland where I asked the audience of about 300 REALTORS two questions: Do you drive most of your business from referrals… friends, family, past clients, other agents, etc.? Do you drive most of your business by reaching out directly to consumers… ads, online home search, etc.? A little […]
