Dakno Real Estate Web Design VP
Introduction
VP at Dakno Real Estate Web Design & Marketing, I'm Bobby Carroll and I'm tasked with managing real estate agent and agencies web design, marketing needs as well as Dakno's social media marketing.

The SEO Game Has Changed - ALL Because of Google+
While many are pursuing traditional, even dated, ineffective SEO strategies for real estate search engine optimization, times have changed in light of Google+. Now more than ever, real estate professionals and real estate agencies need to tap in to the power of GooglePlus. That means creating an optimized Google+ personal profile with tagline with your targeted keywords, a robust introduction and your bragging rights.

Google is basically saying;
  • tell us who you are
  • what you do
  • where you do it
  • how well you know what it is you do
Basically - be a subject matter expert and tell Google all about it!

A total Google+ presence also includes leveraging your Google+ Business page and Google Local for organic mapped results. But don't stop there! It's important you engage, share your content, be seen as a giver, and show extreme value. By engaging, re-sharing content, +1ing, and commenting you build influence for others and that increases your own influence. As the saying goes; give and it will given back to you!

Be an Engaged GooglePlus Learner
If you'll invest a few minutes a day on GooglePlus you'll quickly recognize this platform offers an abundant wealth of information. And GooglePlus has many generous experts who you should consider adding to your circles. A few of these include:
  1. Bill Gassett
  2. Jesse Wojdylo
  3. Mark Traphagen 
  4. Phil Buckley
  5. David Amerland 
 I'm pleased to have interacted with each of these individuals, some in person but all here on Google+. They are the "real deal". They represent the best of what Google+ has to offer.

Other Roles at Dakno Web Design
Because we cater to clients of all shapes and sizes, I wear many hats at Dakno. From coaching real estate agents in the art of blogging and social media marketing to evaluating design and functionality, it's all in an effort to help Dakno clients gain the most from their online and offline marketing strategies.

Gaining a sense of fulfillment giving away helpful real estate marketing tips, many of our Dakno clients and peers say I possess a passion for helping my partners and friends build their digital brand and their business.

REALTORS - This is BIG! Google+ Announces "Pinterest-like" Image Collections!

Now you can put the power of your real estate images to good use by creating categories of collections of images. Read all about it!

#RealEstateCollections
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

+Karen Highland, probably a good idea to drip images to your Collections a little at a time.

Awesome Real Estate Agent Landing Page Tips from +Christina Ethridge!

In this video, Christina gives great advice on creating solid buyer lead generating landing pages for Facebook ads!

While the highest and best landing pages recommended by Christina were void of the agent's branding, we believe it's best to remind your visitors of your brand.

You'll note that the best landing pages are void of the main navigation menu so visitors are trapped on the page.

Here are several +Dakno Marketing client examples based on Christina's tips:

+The Bittinger Team : http://www.bittinger.com/canton-homes-for-sale-search-by-price (Customized DaknoIDX landing page)

+Leslie Cain Realty : http://www.lesliecainrealty.com/lindale-hideaway-homes-for-sale-popular-searches (Customized +IDX Broker landing page)

+Florida Future Realty, Inc. : http://www.findcapecoralrealestate.com/cape-coral-homes-for-sale-popular-searches (Customized +IDX Broker landing page)

What questions do you have about creating robust lead generating landing pages?

I’ve been so pleased with what the implementation team--Kris Murray--has done and it’s exciting to see the website come along so seamlessly! I expected to spend many hours of my time working on content and setting things up, but amazingly, you all did it all for me. I also value the extra support and advice that Bobby has offered that is important to Collins Design Realty's marketing success!

I've eaten BBQ from one end of NC to the other (Murphy to Manteo as we like to say!). Clyde Cooper's BBQ is as good as they come. If you want good pork barbecue, tasty side dishes like cole slaw, mix of butter beans and corn plus yummy hush puppies/fried pork rinds topped off with sweet tea served up with good service, Clyde Cooper's BBQ is mighty fine eaten Eastern NC style.

If I were to choose one word to describe our meal and service this evening, it would be impressive. I ordered the flat bread french dip and my wife ordered the black forest sandwich. Our order was taken when we were seated and our drinks arrived quickly. The meals arrived in a timely manner, and the servings were plentiful and tasty. We experienced excellent service and our glasses were consistently filled. This was our second visit to the Fox and Hound and we will be returning.

My wife and I ate here for the very first time at lunch today and overall, the food and service was very, very good. Beating most of the lunch crowd, we arrived early before noon. Because this was our first visit, the waitress explained the menu thoroughly and stated there was a special shrimp burger being offered for a limited time that was popular with both the team and diners last night. I decided on the shrimp burger and my wife selected a custom beef burger with slices of avocado and pineapple wrapped in lettuce as she was on a special diet. Our drinks came out quickly and we were greeted by the manager (Joseph). I asked about the shrimp burger and he explained where the shrimp were sourced and how the burger was prepared. I was impressed. At this point, the restaurant was packed. Our food was served in a timely manner and we never needed to request refills. The server was there with fresh refills before our glasses were empty. The quality of our burgers was very good and the quantity of the food was pretty good. The size of the burgers was very good but they did skimp a bit on the fries (especially if you compared Bad Daddy's Burger Bar to BurgerFi). We never complained. A second manager stopped by and asked about our food and service. We remarked that our experience had been excellent. He offered us a free appetizer coupon in appreciation of our feedback and we gladly accepted it stating we would be back soon. If you are looking for a good burger and superior dining experience, based on our first visit, we recommend Bad Daddy's Burger Bar.

We read the other reviews about Poole's being a "posh" diner with delicious food so we thought we would give it a try. Underwhelmed would best describe our meal. The service was fine. But I'm still scratching my head how my baked chicken and mashed potatoes was a $19 meal. No bread. No salad. It was tasty but for $19? Not hardly. My wife had the appetizer of pimento cheese and crackers. Again, the food was pretty tasty but for one entree, one appetizer and two glasses of water for $30. I had eaten at Poole's back in the day when it was a luncheonette. Oh to have it back. My trip down memory lane was a pricey one and and not a good value at all.

Like many, we purchased the buy one get one free 1.5 hour self-guided Paddle Creek Neuse River Paddle. After checking in at Paddle Creek, we boarded a van for our quick trip from the Paddle Creek HQ to where our kayaks were put in the Neuse for us. We brought along our own paddles and PFDs. Others on the excursion were issued their own. After listening to the disclaimers, we were on our way down the river. The kayaks were in average condition. Being at the end of the season, that was understandable. My boat was missing the seat bottom cushion. We enjoyed the paddle (our first on the Neuse River) and soon we were at the take out location where the Paddle Creek team loaded our boats for our short drive back to the Paddle Creek store. If you are looking for a self-guided, easy paddle down the Neuse River, Paddle Creek does a nice job arranging and coordinating the paddle.

Offering a cool vibe, and a clean facility Jubala is one of my fav coffee shops. The coffee and food is excellent as well as the service. My lone exception to Jubala not attaining perfection is I like really hot coffee. It never is quite hot enough for me.
