Time to focus!

November is my favorite month to organize my contacts list, plan marketing ideas for the coming year, outline new daily routines and just get focused.  

This is a great time of year to revisit what worked last year, what didn’t, and think about how to implement what worked with a few new ideas!  I am excited about 2010 !  Looking forward to continued improvement in the market.

It is finally official. The homebuyers’ tax credit has been extended to April 30, 2010

It is finally official from “The Mortgage Daily News”

The homebuyers’ tax credit has been extended to April 30, 2010.

President Barack Obama approved the extension as part of a $24 billion economic stimulus bill signed Friday.  The bill also includes an extension of unemployment benefits to the longtime jobless and tax credits for some businesses.

The housing tax credit portion of the bill extends the $8,000 tax credit for home buyers who are purchasing their first home from the current November 30 deadline and expands the program to offer a credit of $6,500 to other homeowners who have lived in their current home for at least five years and are seeking to relocate. 

Another modification to the original legislation raises the income limits for program participation from $75,000 for a single purchaser to $125,000 and from $125,000 to $225,000 for a couple.  There are also credits available on a diminishing basis above those income limits.

The bill was passed by the Senate on Wednesday evening and by the House on Thursday.  Both bodies acted in a bipartisan manner which has seldom been seen this year.  The Senate passage was unanimous; the House voted 403 to 12 for the bill.

Its coming together

My goal was to combine a pressence on facebook, tweeter, wordpress and activerain. 

This took some work! 

What I had… facebook social page, and a blog on Activerain. 

What I wanted was a facebook “business” page.  More exposure on my blog, and a presence on twitter. 

What I did…

1) Set up a “fan page” from my main facebook account, to use for business.  2) Set up a twitter acount  3) linked those two (I can send forward the site that explain how to do this) so that when I post on facebook it also posts on twitter  4) set up a blog on wordpress   5) link my blog to facebook (also have a site that explains this process. 

What I got… Now when I blog on wordress, it also posts to facebook, then to twitter. 

Activerain, this is a seperate blog, I use primarily for technology and marketing ideas, I put a rrs/blog tab on my facebook fan page so you can read up more on there. 

Let the fun begin!

Sorting it all out

So I want to have a webpage/blog, a face book business page (seperate from my family/friend page), and yes… a tweeter.  I want to keep it simple, have them linked… So  I created a blog on wordpress, when I blog it posts to my facebook business page, which also posts to tweeter.  Still in the testing stage… hope it works!
