    New, Inexpensive Video Opportunities Explode For Small Businesses (Including Hyperlapse)

    by Sam DeBord on August 28, 2014

    If you haven’t tried out Instagram’s new Hyperlapse app (and your Facebook feed isn’t already full of your friends’ time lapse videos), stop reading this article, get the app, and try it out right now. My first reaction to this app was that its ability to shoot a time lapse video from a mobile phone was really interesting, but its ability to stabilize video through its programming that constantly monitors the phone’s gyroscope was the really useful feature.  Steve Pacinelli at Tech Savvy agent beat … Read More »

Can Social Media Replace Business Cards?

Posted on by Troy Schuricht

No matter what your business or industry, the value of the internet and social media cannot be denied.

Referrals are pretty much the best lead you can get, since someone is introducing you to a potential client with their stamp of approval/trust. Whether or not you make money from referrals (I know some refuse to monetize that process), virtually every agent desires to find a trusted, qualified agent by location to hand a relocation client off to every now and then.
