Hello Realtors. As with past Friday Five’s , I am constantly on the lookout for cool stuff on the web that will make us better agents. Sometimes there are pieces on blogging, sometimes helpful hints to boost your social media endeavours, and sometimes just good real estate advise. Hope you have a few moments to check out these links. Enjoy.

Jeff Bullas is an amazing Social Media blogger. I always provide content from him, but feel free to bookmark his page or follow him on Twitter. He is a genius. This article provides 10 tips to rock your personal website. Don’t let it stagnate. keep it fresh and incorporate updating it into your daily work routine.

As usual, I’m going to say that QR codes (Quick Response codes) are an amazing thing. Next time you order cards, put a QR Code on them. I use qrmobilize.com because it is simple and free. When you scan the code on my card, you get my picture, plus email, plus a hot link to my twitter, facebook and linkedIn profile. Frees up a lot of space on my card too. Check out this site and see great opportunities for qr code use as well as some fails.

Finally, one of the questions I get the most is ‘what do I blog or tweet about’?  Well, I recommend you bookmark Renx.ca it is a great site where all real estate information from across Canada and the US  is collected.
