As we close out this year have you made your technology plan / resolution?

If not here is some suggestions.

Resolution #1 – Have a plan for your technology.
Don’t buy it because someone says you should.
Don’t buy it because it will make you more money (it won’t)
When you buy your software / hardware look for interoperability. Don’t buy a Treo thinking you can keep your contacts sync’d with your Hotmail contacts. Don’t buy a Contact Management Solution thinking you can make it work with your cheap $50 dollar nokia phone that doesn’t do anything but make phone calls.

Moral – Plan out every aspect don’t just buy it.

Resolution #2 – If you are buying a new computer make it a Laptop or Tablet PC
The is no need anymore to have your main PC be a desktop computer. With the advances in wireless technologies and the availability of internet access for almost anywhere / including the beach. Do you need a Tablet PC? No. Why not? Because you don’t need a Tablet PC to do electronic signatures. I will have a tutorial from Kevin Boer at
3 Oceans Real Estate where he explains how to use Docusign soon.

Resolution #3 – STOP USING FREE EMAIL
Their are many ways to start using your domain for you email and one is free. See my google apps article here.

Resolution #4 – Upgrade your website to include a blog and start writing.
Look into these Vendors for you blogging needs

Ubertor – A great website blog all in one solution
RSS Pieces – A blogging platform created for Realtors
Real Estate Blog Sites – Another?plaform created for Realtors

Resolution #5 – Shameless Self Plug – Get a FREE TECHNOLOGY ASSESMENT

See you next year.
