Here is a blog post on QR codes: I have been working on generating QR codes for our customers for several years. The best place for a REALTOR to place a QR is on the yard sign. We create a QR that is specifically for that and place it on the listing home page. A scan will send a text message with the URL to the webpage for that listing - all in real time. We hope to have even more news about this feature next week - to see what it might be click the smart phone QR code here: to learn how to make a powerful website a part of your marketing efforts visit @YourHomeDream

Step one: Teach home sellers to choose an agent that can help them stage a home - Step two: Teach potential home buyers how to see right through it Hey Trulia how about helping both buyers and sellers by joining the fight for a fair playing field for financing. Help agents by creating a lead generation system that creates equity with all leads going to the providing listing agent. While you are at it giving a choice to the agent for what feed syndicates would go a long way to creating equity for agents that pump the blood in your website.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 I think the take away lesson is Real Estate professionals should keep their public assets in good shape. Pay attention, keep up with your information, people are looking at you. Be ready for when they are ready. We all are wanting the housing industry to get going. Those who are planning and working now will be the winners when it does.

To the family of Steve Jobs

It is not my way to write to those who have died. So, I write to those of you who are alive and feel the heaviness in your hearts at the passing of Steve Jobs. I wish to tell you our story in hopes that it will bring you all comfort and solace knowing how his dedication to innovation and his inventiveness impacted lives for the better here in Tennessee. My name is Jennifer McDougal and I am the owner of McDougal Design, a small graphic arts company in Cleveland, TN, operating since 1985. Along with my husband, Terry, we began our graphics company at a time when the application of graphics arts as I studied in college, was on the way out. We were a pre-press graphic shop that began in the pre-digital age using Varitypers, a process camera, and my skill of "cut and paste". We made a good living in our small shop, mainly producing real estate magazines for publishers all over the US. Terry, who is our R&D guy among all the other responsibilities he manages for us, soon realized that the way we produced our work was about to change drastically. He read everything he could find about Apple computers. In 1990, we purchased our first SE. I was a reluctant adopter, thinking there was no way a computer could be as fast and efficient in page layout as myself. It only took me two weeks to change my tune! Terry and I were "self-taught" on the use of our Apple computers and became quite proficient with them, thanks to the intuitive nature of their use. As upgrades came along, we would upgrade the office, as budget would allow. And we were never disappointed with an upgrade, only amazed at the increased speed and efficiency we experienced. We were among the Apple enthusiasts who were deemed "different" because we chose not to embrace the Windows platform. We have never been sorry for doing so. Terry believed in Apple so much that he purchased stock in the company back when it had lost value at $6.25 a share and $12.50 a share. Now to the part of this story where we both give you all our personal thanks. Running a small business is not without its challenges, especially in this economy. As the real estate and print industries have suffered, we found ourselves needing to change our business plan and move away from pre-press graphics and into the world of web design and internet communications. In abandoning our old business structure and metamorphosing into the new, the Apple brand continues to be a vital part of our new venture. We do much of our business via our iPhone and though we haven't been able to upgrade yet, we continue to use our iMacs and G3 and G4 computers in house. And though it has been tough to do so, to get us by, Terry sold off some of his Apple stock, which has allowed us to keep our doors open and pay the bills when so many businesses around us have folded. We are thankful that we have this wonderful relationship with Apple. We are thankful that Steve Jobs was a visionary, truly dedicated and successful at blending form with function through his Apple products. You see, his success has been our success and sustainability in business for over 25 years. We know he did not do it alone, so we thank each of you who have had a part in his life and his legacy. Our prayers are with you during this time of grief. We truly hope that our heartfelt appreciation for the contribution Steve Jobs made to our lives will, in a small way, bring you much comfort. Sincerely yours, Jennifer and Terry McDougal

Why you should insure trumping position at Trulia/Zillow for your listings.

Syndicating from your own personal website is the only way to insure top trumping positional the leading portals like Trulia/Zillow. Claiming your listings is not adequate as Trulia/Zillow dictates which feed will show on their site. It only insures that you will be there when the listing is presented but not exclusively. Upgrading to "Pro" means that; only you will show BUT Trulia/Zillow still chooses the syndication source. The problem is not just at the Trulia/Zillow portals. The portals syndicate listings to other portals and your listings show there too. All of the other portals put their rules in play on lead generation. So the problem is compounded. The only acceptable solution is to have a feed that trumps all others. IE: a feed that contains your listings with your CTA text as a part of the listing. To my satisfaction I have proven this with several of my customers help. To me the ultimate solution is for an agent to do exactly what my customers are able to do: BUILD YOUR OWN BRAND AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LISTINGS EVERYWHERE IN THE CLOUD. You can only do that with a CTA in your remarks and you can only do that in your own branded website. Members of RCAR and GCAR MLS systems call Terry at 423-284-2760 for more information. At McDougal Design we believe that a lead generated by a listing anywhere it resides in the cloud belongs to the agent that owns the listing!

This just in from Zillow

This just in from Zillow:

Hi Terry-
 Yes, a personal agent/broker site will trump everything else. Specifically, the order is as follows:
Personal agent/broker site -> parent broker site -> trusted 3rd party (like Listhub) -> additional 3rd party (like eProperty Sites).

Zach Cartwright,
Technical Account Manager

SO! - What an agent needs to have their listings, with their marketing info including a CTA, show at Zillow is an XML feed of listings from their personal website. NOW WE DO THAT TOO!

Search engine added to website inventory page.

Greetings! It is July, and summer is in full swing. Your web site is also in full swing with a new feature! Several years ago we realized that QR code marketing was going to be big. We recommended that you create a bar code that points to your inventory page on your website for your sign rider. We hope you have or are in the process of doing just that. Our update today makes it even easier to find a listing from a QR scan that points to your inventory page. Once your QR code has been scanned by your potential customer, your inventory page is the landing for that scan. On your page, customers will find an easy to use search engine that will help them in finding more info on that exact property. For example, a customer is standing at one of your listings. Your sign also include a sign rider with the QR code. The customer scans the code with their smart phone, your website comes up, and then the customer uses the search engine by putting in price range, address, city, or even MLS to find easily information on that particular property. Wow! Talk about info in an instant! Go to your website and check out this brand new search engine feature and be sure to "ping" about it on your social network! Have a super fun summer and sell, sell, sell!

RealBird does not accept listing feeds!

Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with a company representative at RealBird. We discussed the possibility of adding listings into their system from McDougal Design. I was very disappointed to hear that they do not accept listing feeds! Actually, I find it baffling that they do not. Listings are the life blood of our business. Without them we do not exist. The McDougal Design Website system, for both Brokers Office and Agents creates listings from MLS data then automatically adds "Call To Action" text to the listings "Remarks" for display on the listing page and in their syndication feed. We create a web page for every listing in the customers MLS inventory and update them from the settings at the MLS three times per day. We syndicate a feed of these listings using our customers branded domain name as the landing page.

 As we continue to develop our product we seek partners to provide a level of service faster, more efficient and better than we can on our own. We use this business plan as it is in our clients best interest to diversify their web assets. If any one component fails the remaining assets stay in tact. I could develop a suite of products to provide the services similar to RealBird to my customers. But why should I? RealBird already has them. Is it not better to cooperate than compete? Once RealBird accepts listings, via XML feed, our customer could seamlessly integrate RealBird into their current marketing strategy by subscribing to their system. I cannot recommend RealBird to my customers. They do not want to create their listings more than one time on the Internet, nor should they. We make it possible for them to maintain a single record for each listing at the MLS and insure that it will be kept up to date everywhere in the cloud seamlessly. Accepting our feed is the key missing component. I urge RealBird to do so.

Syndication hoops - the rules of listing marketing at Real Estate Portals

Does your Website have a listing page for each of the properties in your inventory? Are you syndicating those listings to real estate portals? Have you claimed your listings there? These are some of the hoops Real Estate Professionals must go through to market listings at many of the major RE portals on the Internet. Yes the Internet is an important place to market listings. There are rules that are set by the portals, that brokers and agents must follow to have their listings in the portals inventory and "Trump" other listing sources so the leads generated by those listings come back to the listing provider. If you do not follow the process provided by the portal the leads are distributed by the portals agent selection process. @YourHomeDream we know the rules and insure our GCAR and RCAR clients maximize their lead potential with their branded Website.

Building a brand means reserving, then using your brand ID everywhere you can. Social and Industry Website profiles are FREE and are an important generator for promoting a brand ID. @YourHomeDream we do it for you as a part of our standard branded Website set up package.

Syndication lead generation.

I am working on improving the quality of our syndication feeds for our customers. Already seeing some good results! As of today, listing syndication now uses the agent branded URL for the landing page and syndication ID at the syndication Website! An agent's listings are theirs, we believe the leads generated by those listings should be the listing agent's as well.

Analytics is the life blood of marketing. Real Estate Agents are marketers of themselves and their inventory. Do you KNOW when a property's price is to high? Do you KNOW where your customers are coming from? Do you KNOW the "key words" used to find your site? Analytics will answer these questions and more. @YourHomeDream market portal analytics is a part of the Broker/Agent Google analytics package.

Welcome to the syndication partners list ( and thanks for the traffic @YourHomeDream
Your web site is your business identity on the Internet. I think everyone would agree to that. Simple, straight forward. But do you, the site owner, understand what that means? Do you use your site as a demonstration during an initial meeting with a potential customer? How does it work to make a first impression with a casual browser? What about your home owner clients? Are you encouraging them to get involved with the selling process by interacting with their homes page on your site? After you show a home to potential buyers do you encourage them to post a review of the home on it's page? By building a site that can be used by both you and your customers, we are creating a powerful tool to spread the good news of your product. If your customers can tell others about you, using THEIR existing tools and post to THEIR social network then you have a site that allows THEM to spread YOUR business identity. @YourHomeDream we create sites that work in our customers and our customers customers best interest. After all, social networking on the Internet is "word of mouth" in a new fashioned way. Call/Text Terry at 423-284-2760 and find out what a web site that works can do for you.

Can you send customers to a listing page on your web site inside an IDX frame? Are your IDX listing pages indexed by search engines? Can you syndicate your listings from your site from IDX? @YourHomeDream we do both!

@YourHomeDream is constantly looking for new syndication partners This video explains the "trumping" system at Zillow. We encourage our client "webmasters" to claim their listings at the major portals so their sites listings will trump all other syndication sources. We believe that leads from syndicated listings should belong to the agent providing the listings.

@yourhomedream Your Web site syndicates your listings. Is it important? Check out this listing @yahoo Who would you call or what page would you visit to get more information? The web connections should lead back to you the listing agent in a clear and definite way. They are your listings, they should generate your leads and not be used to generate revenue for your competitors.

Did you get an email with a subject line: HootSuite Pivot - CONFIDENTIAL & INTERNAL? Before you get all bent out of shape about it think of what day this is: April 1. In my opinion, when it is business, the fool is the perpetrator. I would never allow that to be done by any of the staff @YourHomeDream. But I loved my sons joke on his mom today!

@latimes 'Shadow inventory' of 1.8 million homes could prolong housing slump. The glut of troubled homes not yet on the market represents a nine-month supply at the current sales pace. That's in addition to 3.49 million previously owned homes already on the market. More: @YourHomeDream
What does it mean to have every active status listing as a page on your own branded web site? Think about this, if you send an email of a set of listings to a potential customer now, to what site are you sending them? To compatible listing pages on your site or somewhere you could loose them as a customer? It would be better to send them to your sites matching listing pages then help them search the MLS at your site on your IDX if they want to see more listings. @YourHomeDream you can do that because you have listing pages!
