So you already have one of these…WWW.?#&%?.COM.. , so why not have one of these too (QR Code)
Just like with any new technology, early adoption of something new requires change and more work, etc. , ‘why would i use a QR Code for Multi level Marketing and promoting my real estate listings?’ The answer is why wouldn’t you!
RealtyGo understands the importance of simplicity when it comes to technology and easy to use applications. We have designed our service so everyone listing real estate can take advantage of new technology like QR Codes and Auto Text message scheduling; but most importantly to offer end users different modalities they feel comfortable using to get what they want when they want it.
You already have one of these http://WWW.?%&#@?.com You may as well have one of these too! Yes were referring to a QR Code. Its really that simple everyone. Why wouldn’t you use QR Codes? Its like every other new piece of technology that you say, “i’ll never use that, what a waste” then 2 months later you have 1,000 songs on your 2GM ipod nano and your 10 year collection of CD’s have been shelved, etc.. . Remember a good sales man uses tools that other people gravitate toward to be successful. Just because you may not believe QR Codes are a necessity right now doesn’t mean a first time buyer (which in 2010 was half of all the sales in the U.S. ; median age of 33) may prefer to use a QR Code to see all your listing info, use the complimentary mortgage calculator provided, get updated relevant information, photos, price, square footage and all your savvy online presence right from the get go, without trying to track the listing agent down by phone or email.
RealtyGo enables the end user to contact you when and how they feel comfortable doing so. If you just put your phone number on a sign, thinking ‘oh i’ll just wait by my phone every second of every day, being the best Agent there ever was’, etc.. then you are not only wasting your own valuable time, but doing a disservice to your career by making your self available by phone all the time, even neglecting continuing education classes or seminars due to the worry factor of not being able to answer each and every call on the first ring. Don’t act like you don’t know exactly what I’m talking about agents. It is humanly impossible to always be 100% available at all times for you real estate listings.
We couldn’t of said it better our selves Jason, “so people are gunna do it, cause it’s pretty easy to do” easy one minute video on how to use QR Codes from a third party company we chose randomly from YouTube. Thanks for posting the video Jason! RealtyGo
I always think of the safe auto commercials that have been running lately, technology when you want it, people when you don’t! – such a great, great example of letting the end user decide, but make sure you offer all channels of communication available and make it count, you may only get one change to earn someone’s business or make a sale over a competitor in today limited resource market.

Unilever Names Coke’s Marc Mathieu as No. 2 Global Marketing Executive | Global News – RealtyGo_blog
Unilever has named former Coca-Cola Co. marketer Marc Mathieu as its No. 2 global marketing executive, reporting to Global Marketing and Communications Officer Keith Weed, rounding out a redesign of the global marketing team for the world’s second-biggest advertising spender.
Marc Mathieu is charged with helping Unilever double sales while reducing overall environmental impact. Green business practices are a necessity for the future. If your professional business is not currently participating in any Green technology in order to reduce and reinvent traditional business practices, please take some time and discover how you can make a difference. Even listing, promoting, and using Mobile real estate services from RealtyGo will help cut back on excessive print and ink waste, while promoting the delivery of information via the digital channel.
Mr. Mathieu, 51, whom Mr. Weed credits with helping turn around Coca-Cola by developing the “Coke Side of Life” branding platform and launching Coke Zero last decade as VP-global branding, will join Unilever April 1. He will oversee Unilever’s global corporate branding effort; marketing training, including the Unilever Marketing Academy; marketing services; agency relations; and return on marketing investment. VPs over those areas will report to him.
For the past three years has led Atlanta-based BeDo, a strategic marketing consultancy. BeDo focuses on sustainability issues and has had Johnson & Johnson, Danone, Coca-Cola, Levis and Club Med as clients. Among projects the firm has launched has been The Hoop, a micro-lending venture for fair-trade producers and brands.
That dovetails with Unilever’s own sustainability efforts and with Mr. Mathieu’s new charge in helping Unilever double sales while reducing overall environmental impact by 2020, said Mr. Weed, who also oversees the company’s sustainability efforts.
“I wanted to get some heavyweight marketers in my top team,” Mr. Weed said in an interview. “And the fact that we were able to get someone like him says a lot about the progress we’ve made and the momentum we’ve got and the progress we’re making in innovation in the marketing area.”
Mr. Mathieu is the last of five senior VPs Mr. Weed has appointed since taking his post last year. He joins Gavin Neath (sustainability), Sue Garrard (communications), Richard Davies (consumer and market insight) and Luis Di Como (global media), the latter having recently been named to succeed Laura Klauberg in that post. Three of the five came from within Unilever, but Ms. Garrard, previously with the U.K.’s Department for Work and Pensions, like Mr. Mathieu came from outside.
“I’ve got a balance between internal hires and external hires to bring diversity of thought,” Mr. Weed said, adding that he considered internal and external candidates for each of the posts.
Mr. Mathieu’s experience in branding and sustainability along with Unilever putting sustainability under the marketing organization is something Mr. Weed sees as part of a trend.
“Having sustainability led by an environmentalist in a small department by itself was never going to get the sort of traction we need in this world to get true innovation in the area,” he said.

The faster the network, the better your MobileURL’s operate | Sprint could deploy LTE nationwide by year-end 2013 | RealtyGo_blog
Should Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) decide to deploy LTE as part of its Network Vision network modernization project, the company could have a live LTE network this year, with nationwide LTE coverage by year-end 2013, a senior Sprint executive said.
Speaking at a Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference Wednesday, Steve Elfman, Sprint’s president of network operations and wholesale, said that the company will not make a decision regarding LTE deployment until mid-year. He added that if Sprint does decide to deploy LTE it could turn it on quickly and have LTE devices by 2012. Elfman added that the reason the company will not make a decision until mid-year is because Sprint wants to establish and announce a strategy that is still being determined by the company and its partner Clearwire (NASDAQ:CLWR), which runs a mobile WiMAX network.
Elfman also discussed Network Vision, the $4 billion to $5 billion network modernization project that Sprint is undertaking over the next three to five years. Sprint currently runs an EV-DO network in the 1900 MHz PCS band, has a wholesale deal with Clearwire to use WiMAX in the 2.5 GHz band and owns an iDEN network in the 800 MHz band. Sprint has said it will begin phasing out the iDEN network in 2013.
Elfman reiterated that the company plans to enhance its CDMA coverage in the 800 MHz to improve in-building coverage. In addition, he said that Sprint will deploy a CDMA-based push to talk solution from Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) and will have new PTT devices by the third quarter of this year that will use the enhanced PTT solution.
Regarding Sprint’s relationship with Clearwire, Elfman said that Clearwire has been a good partner to Sprint and that the company is “in the middle of some positive negotiations with them.” The two companies have been locked in a dispute over wholesale revenue sharing, and Clearwire has said that resolving the dispute is key to moving forward on securing new funding. Clearwire expects to announce a decision on new funding sometime in the second quarter.
Over the past six months there has been lots of buzz about mobile payments. High-profile companies such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Visa have all indicated they are exploring ways to make money from mobile payments. And at last month’s Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Spain, the momentum around mobile commerce and Near Field Communications seemed to grow even stronger. In fact, several firms including Research in Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM), Deutsche Telekom and Orange all talked about how they were incorporating mobile commerce and/or Near Field Communications technology into their future plans. Some companies even went so far as to designate 2011 as the year for NFC payments.
We are under the impression that cellphone manufactures will be offering a secure mobile payment method – Near Field Communication
(NFC) short-range wireless technology and includes real-time anti-fraud alerts and other features designed to protect consumers from fraud.
Fine-tuning the business model for this nascent service is challenging. Wireless carriers, platform providers, device makers and financial institutions all want a piece of the revenue pie. It’s not surprising, considering that many analysts estimate that the market potential for these services is enormous. According to Portio Research, mobile payments volumes worldwide were $68.7 billion in 2009 and are forecast to reach $633.4 billon by year-end 2014. The biggest potential markets for mobile payments are Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America, Portio says.
But for mobile payments to reach the potential predicted by Portio, a lot of diverse players will have to fit together to make a compelling and lucrative solution. How that will happen is unclear. All we know for sure is that there is a lot of experimentation in the market today.
To help spur the market, the GSMA is heading up a NFC-related initiative with several of the world’s biggest operators including America Móvil, Axiata Group Berhad, Bharti, China Unicom, Deutsche Telekom, KT Corp., MTS, Orange, Qtel Group, SK Telecom, Softbank Mobile, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telekom Austria Group, Telenor and Vodafone. The operators have said they intend to launch commercial NFC services in select markets by 2012.
In the U.S., mobile payments have made headlines lately because of the new initiative Isis, which is a joint venture from Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ), AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) and T-Mobile USA. The carriers plan to leverage Discover Financial Services’ network to process payments; Barclaycard U.S. will be the first issuer. Isis has inked deals with merchants but so far has not revealed the names of those merchants or more details about when it will launch.
Meanwhile, Sprint has decided to go it alone with its mobile wallet initiative, called Sprint Mobile Wallet. Unlike the Isis project, Sprint’s wallet will let customers make purchases using their existing Visa, MasterCard and Amazon accounts. Sprint is going to eventually hit the big one, you have to admit they always have their hat in the rink, and sooner or later they are going to hit one out of the park.
Clearly for mobile payments to become a success, merchants, financial services, operators and device makers need to come together to make a viable solution. Perhaps all this experimentation in the market will result in less fragmentation and more cohesiveness. We are exploring those issues and more in “Cashing in on Mobile Commerce,” a new eBook from FierceWireless. In this eBook, we take an in-depth look at the overall potential for the mobile commerce market, profile some successful mobile payment implementations and explore some of the latest initiatives in barcodes, mobile coupons and more.

Mobile use is growing faster than all of Google’s internal predictions, with YouTube seeing 200 million mobile playbacks a day, CEO Eric Schmidt said in his keynote at the Internet Advertising Bureau’s Annual Leadership meeting keynote.As proof of mobile’s growth, Schmidt cited some statistics related to this year’s Super Bowl advertisers: The number of mobile searches for Chrysler, for instance, jumped 102 times during the game, compared with only 48 times for desktop searches. And the number of mobile searches for GoDaddy jumped 315 times, compared with 38 times on desktops.Schmidt, who spoke Sunday at the IAB event in Palm Springs, Calif., also said that 78% of smartphone owners use their phones while they shop. “This is the future and everyone will adapt,” Schmidt said. “Because people are fundamentally better off with a better and smarter and more empowered, if you will, customer.”Mobile growth is occurring at a quicker rate than anyone expected, Schmidt noted. “We look at the charts internally and it’s happening faster than all of our predictions,” Schmidt said.Schmidt, who will leave his post as Google CEO on April 4, used those stats to make a case for linking display advertising and mobile.“The technology has finally caught up with the promises we talked about for so long,” Schmidt said. He predicted that display advertising could hit $200 billion business, though he declined to say when that milestone would be reached. Display is currently a $17 billion business globally. Google’s share of that is about $2.5 billion a year.

What mobile DTV (MDTV) is?
Which networks can deliver true DTV experience to mobile devices?
True Mobile Digital TV (MDTV) means watching live Digital TV (DTV) on mobile devices,
with a user experience similar to the one the consumers are used to on their home TV. This
means having a big variety of shows to watch, with high quality high frame rate video and
quick response time for channel switching. While there are elements in the market that try to
confuse true MDTV with other forms of TV/media distribution that offer poor quality video
and a poor offering of channels, true MDTV is distributed through a dedicated broadcast
Soon real estate professionals will be able to stream their live events and seminars through MDTV channel outlets, keeping consumers up to date on current events within their general areas. Imagine getting updates from destination places around the world, Vacation rentals for lease and a tour performed by the actual owner or representative. Choosing you vacation destination in the near future may become more real than ever before. Rest assure, RealtyGo will be looking into this futuristic type channeling to deliver real estate listings and information as efficiently as possible for everyone using Mobile devices. Keep a look out for MDTV and a new technology boom; does Youtube ring a bell… .
The most common alternatives of DTV distribution to mobile devices are to get the DTV
content through the WiFi network or through the cellular network.
This article explains the different available methods, why the true MDTV experience can be
achieved only by a dedicated broadcast MDTV network and how the MDTV offering can be
broadened by wise usage of all the methods for distribution of DTV, which can provide the
best value and best user experience to the consumer.
1 Methods for Mobile DTV distribution
1.1 Distribution of Mobile DTV through the cellular network
The cellular network is conceptually a unicast network, meaning that the content is
transmitted to each receiver individually, even if several receivers are consuming the same
content simultaneously. Thus with the current deployed and used technologies, distribution
of mobile DTV content through the cellular network is no different than the distribution of any
other data through the cellular network.
There are some technologies for broadcasting content over cellular networks, including
Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (MBMS), Integrated Mobile Broadcast (IMB), and
Evolved MBMS (e-MBMS) for LTE networks. These technologies are currently either not
mature yet or not widely used (i.e. deployed). Nevertheless, though currently cellular
networks use unicast transmission for distributing DTV content, this article refers also to
optional future usage of these broadcast technologies.
The main concern that is related to mobile DTV distribution is its relatively high bandwidth
requirement. Watching live DTV content at good quality on mobile devices requires
continuous reception of streaming audio/video (A/V) content at a rate of about 500Kbps.
This reception rate enables the display of good quality video at QVGA resolution and at a
frame rate of 30 frames-per-second (FPS).
In developed countries, current cellular networks are already congested with the increase of
video consumption (YouTube, etc.), live gaming, web surfing and other data-consuming
applications over mobile devices. These networks do not have the bandwidth to provide live
DTV services with a similar user experience to stationary DTV in terms of video quality and
content variety. Recent testimonials to this problem were made public by AT&T, which is
now setting a cap for its subscribers’ data usage, since they need to “ease the congestion”
