    Mobilegeddon. Are You Ready?

    by Drew Meyers on April 21, 2015

    Those that read tech and marketing blogs may already know: Google is releasing a major update to their algorithms that will heavily favor sites that are optimized for mobile. Search Engine Land has some responses to FAQ’s. The algorithm change only affects searches done on mobile devices, but as everyone knows, that’s a major chunk of searches — and it’s growing, not shrinking. The prospect of missing all that organic SEO traffic because your site doesn’t work on mobile is one more (really good) reason to migrate into … Read More »

Posted on by Drew Meyers

sixpercent

There have been many, many attempts at discount brokerage models, and those looking to dis intermediate the agent entirely over the past decade. Of course, Redfin and Zip Realty are two that come to mind first, because they reached fairly large scale and their brands are still around. Some others are linked from my post about commissions from last year. What other startups have made valiant attempts at it, but went under?

An Alternative to BPP: A Fund for Consumer Startups

Posted on by Drew Meyers

As you probably know by know, I question whether the National Broker Public Portal stands a chance to compete against the established portals (see articles here). I’ve yet to hear a good argument as to how it plans to become a top 3-5 portal — and it doesn’t seem like a good use of time and money if it doesn’t get there. Unless, like I said before, the only goal is to give the brokerage community more leverage in talks with the portals. If that’s the … Read More »

I Do. I Will.
