Well the last few days was awesome. Windermere’s 40th Anniversary Symposium was heald at the Seattle Sheraton.
There many great classes to chose from. I have to say however that there was one class that really shined. This class had really great agents attending and one particular instructor that started one of the mornings off with a row row row your boat rap. This was one of the better ice breakers that I have seen.
Thanks Nicole Nicolay for generating so much positive energy.
This post is about the fun we have here at Windermere Services. It is great when you come to work every day and love what you do, but it is even better when you have fun with other great individuals.
Every year we play a Services softball game. From the beginning I have been one of the coaches, coaching the (Boston Tubesox) and then Cass Herrin has been the other Coach, coaching (The Sock Monkeys). We divide up the offices and play a fun softball game at the UW womens field followed by a BBQ. We even have a huge trophy that has the wins and losses for each year we play the game. I just thought I would share some of the pics form the game this year. Enjoy!
So there seems to be a big buzz these days about QR codes. I’m seeing them pop up all over the place. The idea behind the QR code is great but I’m finding that Realtors aren’t really thinking about the content behind the code.
Let me give you a few examples.
So you have a website that you love. You just found out that you can now put a QR code on your news letter that you mail out monthly. Great this is going to be so cool!
Ask yourself this question when you scan a QR code. “What device am I using?” Yep, you got it your using a hand held smart phone in most cases.
So has that great site of yours been mobile optimized? What will your site look like on my Droid when I snap a shot of the QR code? What will the experience be for me? Will I be able to read all your great info? Will I be able to see great high res pics of the homes you have listed?
Many times web pages look great on a computer screen but transfer them to a mobile device and they look horrible. Many companies today are making sure that they are building mobile optimized solutions so the experience the customer has when they find your QR code will be the best experience on the device they use to view your site.
Here is a good article that talks about some of the points I make in this post. Popular! But are they effective?
BTW Mark has done a good job making sure his site has been mobile optimized.
