I have some interviews and speaking engagements this month that I wanted to invite you to be a part of. Feel free to listen to interviews online or come to one of the events listed below:
January 11: Interview with Sacramento Realtor Tamara Dorris on her internet radio station on 1/11/12 at 10am. I’ll be talking about FHA appraisals for 10 minutes at the beginning of her show. Check out Tamara’s website here for details.
January 19: Effective Blogging for Real Estate: I’m teaching a class at the Sacramento Association of Realtors YPC forum from 9-10am at 2003 Howe Avenue in Sacramento on Thursday January 19. Here is the promo: “Blogging is an opportunity to share knowledge, build relationships and connect with existing and potential customers. If done right, a blog can help build credibility and expertise for your real estate business as well as serve as a place where potential clients can feel you out before deciding to do give you a call. This class is full of tips, how-tos and gives a very practical framework for how to create original content and plan posts. Ryan Lundquist runs the Sacramento Appraisal Blog, which is one of the top appraisal blogs in the State of California. Ryan consistently earns new business from his blog and he is considered a leader in his industry when it comes to building a strong online presence.”
January 19: Incorporating Video into your Content: I was invited by the Sacramento Social Media Club to share my experience with video as a local business. In case you didn’t know, I’ve uploaded over 200 videos over the past few years to YouTube and I also created a real estate video library called “Sacramento Real Estate Tube” that hosts nearly 400 videos thus far from local real estate professionals. Video has been something I’ve used to build trust online, be resourceful for clients, and earn business (there are of course quite a few random videos that have nothing at all to do with business, but everything to do with who I am). My plan is to talk about how I got started using video, why I do it, mistakes I’ve made, what specific tools I use and how I incorporate video into my business plan online. This should be an interesting evening because there will be a professional video specialist speaking first (Kerry Shearer) and then I’ll share as a local video practitioner. This will be an informative presentation, so come expecting to learn and have conversation too. I’m really looking forward to meeting people, sharing what I’ve done and learning from everyone. The event will be from 6-8:30pm at The Art Institute. There is a $15 charge. Reserve a ticket HERE.
January 26: Interview with Sacramento Area Loan Officer Sheri Schmitz on her internet radio station on January 26 (time and topic TBA – I’ll share details as I get them). Check out Sheri’s website here.
