What’s Happening at Atlanta REIA – Week of May 2, 2011Posted on May 3, 2011 by
We had a great May Meeting last night at the W Hotel in Dunwoody. Attendance was high, participation was high and the energy was high! We had a great panel discussion with 3 attorneys (John Maurer, Fred Cross & Doug Shaddix) as well as 1 CPA (Eric Nicoll). They answered many excellent questions from the audience and now serve as a valuable, ongoing source of professional advice for our members and guests.
We also had a really fun “meeting after the meeting” at the Tilted Kilt Perimeter. Attendance was so high, we overwhelmed the wait staff, as we networked late into the night. Many did not leave until they turned the house lights on.
Atlanta REIA is helping make real estate investing fun and profitable once more for both new and seasoned investors. We want to thank all of our volunteers, members, guests and panelists who made it such a great night! We look forward to seeing you all the next Main Meeting and Late Nite Networking or at a subgroup meeting soon!

As we all know, Internet Marketing has a lot of moving parts that are always changing from month to month. There is Search Engine Optimization, Search Engine Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Video Marketing, Email Marketing, Viral Marketing and so on… Most small business and real estate investors have a difficult time getting a grasp on Internet Marketing or actually pulling off an effective Internet Marketing plan. Many don’t know where to start. Others start, get quickly overwhelmed and then stop before the leads start rolling in.
The good news is, your local, high-tech Atlanta REIA group is here to help. If you join our group and participate in many of our ongoing real estate and technology training meetings, webcasts and workshops, you will GET IT and will GET IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Atlanta REIA is a real estate information, education, networking, marketing and technology immersion program.
If you missed our Atlanta REIA North Meeting last month, Dustin Griffin and website designer and internet marketing expert, Jens Beatty, will be getting together again on Monday, May 9th at 7PM via GoToWebinar to show you how you can use a WordPress Website and Blog to help manage and automate your Internet Marketing Strategy from any virtually any web-ready device such as a PC, notebook, netbook, iPad, Droid, Smart Phone, etc.
Whether you run a real estate investing business or any type of other business, a WordPress website and blog can definitely help improve your credibility, marketing efforts, online presence and lead generation. The best news is, you don’t have to be a techie to use WordPress, but it doesn’t hurt either. We are teaching our Atlanta REIA members and guests how they too can be “High Tech Home Buyers & Sellers” and utilize modern technology to run their businesses more effectively online and offline.
