Jump Start Your Selling Season

OKCMAR is planning its Spring Technology Conference and it looks like this will be a must attend! Currently I do not have confirmation on final conference details or pricing but here is a brief overview of the lineup:

Speakers/Presenters:
Doug Devitre- check out Doug Devitre Delivers.com
Gee Dunsten- www.gee-dunsten.com
Brian Boero- www.1000wattconsulting.com

These are three of the top national real estate technology speakers. Locally the conference will feature OPUBCO speaking on behavioral psychographics and their use in technology and marketing as well as several panels.

The conference will feature 2 discussion panels with area subject matter experts "Start 2010 Right: Practical Tips for New REALTORS" and "How we used social media to develop a referral database and increase sales".

In addition there will be several break out demo sessions including: building a facebook site, building a twitter site, building Wikis (microsites for featured properties) using the new "Announce My Listing" viral marketing tool, help me with my I-phone & I-Pod & E-Pro introduction.

MLS will be offering the following sessions: MLS Tools every broker should know about, Smartphone Fundamentals (CE) & Digital Photography & Real Estate (CE). MLS will also be sponsoring its own Geek Squad. Bring in your laptop and ask those burning questions: what is the best ad-ware, why does my computer run so slow, configuring outlook for efficiency.

For the commercial member there will be a separate commercial track featuring information on the new Commerical Property Information Database & Exchange, & two commercial CE courses. Join us for the Commercial REALTOR Happy Hour following the conference

The conference will feature limited technology exhibitors offering discounts to REALTOR members, will have sponsorships available and will include a boxed lunch on day 1 and the OKCMAR membership luncheon during day 2. Luncheon only tickets will be available. There will be a NextGen booth at the conference along with special offerings for NextGen Network (A new OKCMAR task force).

This year's goal is to offer as much of the conference as possible in a virtual format, keep reading for details in the weeks to come. Sponsorship & exhibitor packets will go out next week.
