LINDSAY - This is an outstanding checklist.  I've always wanted to have all of these ideas in one place, but never wanted to spend time doing the research for it.  We should all print this out and check off the items as we do them.  Thanks for sharing this.

Dave- Well, I haven't done all of these things yet. I also do a lot of my research on the weekends. I love to read, a professional book worm I am. Can't say that I have much of a personal life though. :)

Thanks so much for all the great information. It means a lot when other agents will share. Your article made me think about something my first broker said to us "Don't be a secret agent." You are so right, we have to get our presence out there and the web is the place now. Thanks!

Awesome list Lindsay.  The list for me will be a work in progress.  If I look at the entire list, I will get overwhelmed.  I have a facebook page, LinkedIn account and a twitter account.  I can scratch those off!
