I am a big believer in educating yourself to get a leg up on the competition. This is as true in the real estate business world as it is in your regular life. Since so many homebuyers turn to their computers to search for their next home purchase even before contacting a real estate professional, it's a good idea to have at least some knowledge of how your computer works as well as gain knowledge on what you can do to make your clients' listings stand out. Hewlett Packard, one of the largest computer companies in the world, offers some valuable free online computer classes that you may want to check out at their HP Learning Center.
Hewlett Packard is a wealth of information for real estate agents. Their Microsoft Office and Adobe classes teach you how to work with Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Photoshop. Their home office classes will inform you about creating an interactive marketing brochure, designing unique business cards, constructing and printing high quality marketing materials and even online social networking tips. Their basic business classes offer information on editing videos for your real estate business, how to get started on Facebook and Twitter, networking basics and even how to build your very own web page. Their digital photography classes are a must for real estate professionals, since the first impression most buyers will have of your clients' listings involve photos. Learn more about how to compose a shot before you take it to make the most impact, how to solve some common photo problems, scanning photos into your computer and how to touch up/edit photos using Photoshop.
Whether you're a big corporate company or work out of your home, the HP Learning Center can help you build a better real estate business with their free online classes. Take advantage of all that Hewlett Packard has to offer today. Don't feel overwhelmed, though.
