CRS Breakfast in Springfield Missouri – Virtual Idea Share

June 30, 2008

It is always a treat to visit with the Missouri CRS chapter.  What I love about Missouri is that everyone is always so nice.  The drive is about 3 hours from St. Louis which isn’t too bad.  We discussed doing a virtual idea share using a communication platform to serve our members.

This is the hottest Missouri CRS benefit know to man.  No other chapter or organization in real estate is offering this type of member benefit.  What will happen is the first members 12 members will have the opportunity to create PowerPoint slides and share their own ideas, marketing that works, or past success stories.  Each contributor will be able to display the video of themselves while they present 5 minutes of their best stuff.  Contributors may also receive additional exposure and referral opportunities as this video will be displayed nationally to CRS once completed.

There are two options participating:

  • Sharing
  • Viewing

In order to participate in the sharing:

1.      MUST have an active video web cam that works.   Sound must be live from their machine.  Featured as a presenter during online conference

2.      Must create one to five PowerPoint slides. Created in any version of PowerPoint. Slides will be reviewed prior to hosting

In order to participate in viewing the online video conference:
