Generally, all of my blogs are written in the third-person so as to distance myself from the content. However, I feel the need to inject my presence into this post for the purpose of reporting back on my experience at Mega Camp – specifically, Mega Technology Camp.
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Mason Nichols and I am the technology coordinator at Keller Williams in Lafayette, IN. If you have been reading this blog over the course of the last two months, you have been reading posts which I have submitted. On that note, thank you for reading! We strive to bring you the latest news from the real estate industry coupled with insights into the Keller Williams culture.
Simply put: Mega Camp is amazing. Although I was scheduled for a one-day whirlwind trip which included 4 separate flights total, the production and content of the event was enough to make me forget that my day had more travel in it than Mega Camp. Walking into the convention center, I was blown away by all of the vendors present at the event. Representatives from ShowingTime to TopProducer were there to showcase their latest innovations and tools to supplement agent business. Aisles were wide, with plenty of room to maneuver even at the busiest of times. The hall in which the class took place was phenomenal.
The class itself was highly informative, with a wide variety of new websites, apps, and tools being discussed. Representatives from REALTOR.com, Trulia, and more were all present. Topics included the feasibility of implementing a phone application versus setting up a mobile-optimized website, how to effectively utilize video to convert leads, and how to leverage advertising to increase return on investment.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I will attempt to consolidate the information into 1-2 cohesive classes that will relay the information back to our agents here in Lafayette.
Mega Camp was a great event and was exemplary of Keller Williams’ effort to provide agents with the best in training and technology.
Each year, Keller Williams holds a special week-long event in Austin, Texas where top producers converge for leadership and educational workshops designed to propel agent business. Over the course of the week, attendees learn about the latest and greatest tools in the industry from some of the top minds in real estate. This year, Mega Camp will take place between September 13 and September 16 and focus on “THE BEST,” according to the list below:
