Hahn | www.StefanieHahn.com | December 2010 Facebook Connect is not new – it’s about 2 years old now. But many are predicting that 2011 is the year that Facebook Connect reaches the real estate world. Facebook Connect allows consumers to engage and engagement means increased traffic.
  21. 21. Facebook Connect Facebook allows us to connect with our families, friends, co-workers and past clients. We load up our profiles with contact information, personal details, likes and dislikes and share updates with our entire friend list. Websites can take advantage of this by allowing us to use our existing Facebook profile information. Stefanie A. Hahn | www.StefanieHahn.com | December 2010

  36. 36. A Few Tips from Stef on Video … 1. Turn on all of the lights in the home. I mean all - every last one you can find.2. Take your video in segments if possible, rather than all in one continuous shot.3. Move the camera SLOWER than you think you should. If you think you are moving it slowly, move it slower - really.4. Use a tripod and leave it on the ground so you are only moving the camera side to side (again, think segments), move the tripod when you are ready for your next shot (or segment).5. Speak clearly and loudly or if possible, record your voice over the video when editing.6. Definitely - definitely - definitely use your voice for an audio description (just say NO to cheesy music and/or silence).7. Keep it short or you will lose your audience.
  37. 37. Blogging Aspirations Check out Tumblr! Stefanie A. Hahn | www.StefanieHahn.com | December 2010
  38. 38. Try Tumblr. Tumblr will let you quickly create a post – text, photo, links, video and more. The tumblr dashboard is simple and clean. Tumblr is similar to Posterous but (I think) easier to use and understand. Go to www.tumblr.com to check it out! Stefanie A. Hahn | www.StefanieHahn.com | December 2010

  44. 44. QR Codes Something to consider: Keep in mind that QR Codes are a mobile technology – so the site on the other end of the QR Code should be mobile friendly! Stefanie A. Hahn | www.StefanieHahn.com | December 2010
