Podcasting for real estate
Today was a good day. I was so pumped to get to have a meeting with Norma Cother, the managing broker for Crye-Leike Realty here in Tupelo, MS. My purpose for meeting with her? Podcasting!
I had the very strong feeling that Norma, a terrific lady and absolutely outstanding realtor, needed to be the very first realtor in Tupelo (or North Mississippi, for that matter) to have her own podcast.
Norma admitted that she had never heard of podcasting. However, just as soon as I started telling her about it, she "got it." She was immediately on board and ready to put the first episode together.
So, we'll be issuing the first podcast by early next week. This represents a victory, not just for having another convert to podcasting, but also for seeing podcasting becoming another powerful marketing and information tool in the real estate realm. Norma will be "tuning in" to other podcasts, just so she can get some more ideas for how her podcast will increase in value. No doubt, she will be a quite successful podcaster.
Ahhh, the feel of sweet success!
[Note: For those of you who may not know, Tupelo, MS is the birthplace of Elvis Presley — so that fact will make Norma's podcast even more appealing. There is so much history in this town, yet it is blessed with a thriving business community. Elvis would have been proud!]
