What Inman Connect means to me

If you’ve never been to an Inman Connect Conference, I hightly recommend it. Luckily, Connect happens twice a year, in New York in January and in San Francisco in August.   Brad Inman has successfully surrounded himself with some of the best and brightest in the industry, and as a team they have created an event that is by far my favorite event in Real Estate. Inman Connect New York

It’s hard to put into words what this event means to me and our industry. Before I started attending, I used to think Inman Connect was a technology event…But I was wrong. Inman Connect a “connecting” event. Everything about this event is centered on “connecting”. From the way it’s marketed via “ambassadors” to the daily general sessions, the small group dinners and the round table discussions. Brad’s magical recipe has created an environment where everyone mingles and shares. In my opinion, the best way to attend Connect is alone! There are so many amazing networking opportunities, that you’ll miss out if you’re simply hanging out with your colleagues from home. If you leave your comfort zone, and completely immerse yourself in the event, you’ll find it a magical experience.

Now back to “technology”. This IS the place to find it! Inman Connect always features an amazing group of young start-up companies on what they call Start Up Alley. Every year I look forward to seeing what’s new on Start Up Alley. It’s my peek into the future of our industry. And it’s Inman’s way of nurturing these your entrepreneurs who are changing the future of real estate. I could spend hours on Start Up Alley, watching demos and learning about new products. Inman manages to take it from a tradeshow/selling environment to a learning environment, which makes it fun. And when something is fun, the sales come naturally. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Brad and his team for creating this amazing opportunity for all us of.

If you haven’t yet put Inman Connect San Francisco on your calendar, do it now. Join me in San Fransico August 4th through the 7th for a week of fun, networking, inspiration and technology! Register now and save over $300!

You asked, and we delivered! Six new brochure templates…

You asked, and we delivered! I am super excited to tell you that on Friday, January 9th we will add 6 new brochure templates to our library!

New Brochure layouts

If you liked the old brochures, fear not because they will still be available. But the new layouts will have some very important features:

  • Printing the new brochure templates will be a breeze! PDF files, will automatically be created and set up with the correct print margins.  That means your brochures will always fit on a single sheet of paper without adjustments. YES!!!!!
  • In compliance with the latest “Visual Marketing” trends, these brochures are all image focused with larger images than our old brochures.
  • As a result, there will be fewer text details.  That means no more blank spots on your brochure!

We are thrilled to deliver this new upgrade to Obeo’s Smart Marketing Suite of tools.
