Cosmic Cow Pie: Connecting the Dots


Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley


I had a great blogtalkradio show today with Pamela Cendejas, Heather Chavez and Chrystal Morris all of Second Self Virtual Assistance.

If you listend to the show or simply read about the information we covered, I know you can about things they can help you with!

I am hiring them to help get my fan page on facebook all "tricked" out and connecting to my web site, outside blog, Twitter, Linkedin, Flickr and more.  It is just too time consuming and I need to be doing other things. 

Thanks Pam, Heather and Crystal! 

Great show with lots of ideas of how you can help Realtors get into the social media game an win!


Today's edition of "Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley".  First of all, we at Second Self Virtual Assistance have to give a hearty "thank you" to Carra Riley, the Countess of the Cosmic Cow Pie.  We were privileged to be intereviewed by Carra on her BlogTalkRadio program.  We were flattered that she recognized the value of what a virtual assistant can do for real estate professionals.  As usual, Carra was very complimentary and generous.  The time just flew by.  There was so much to cover in such a little time. You can hear the entire interview by clicking the play button below.

Highlights of our interview included:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) means adding keywords and descriptions that utilize key phrases you want to optimize for people looking for a Realtor® in your area.  The keywords are what people type in the search bar of Google, Yahoo or Bing to find exactly what they are looking for (for example, kingwood real estate, homes for sale in colorado springs, etc.).  After your site is optimized, we submit it to the search engines and a list of directories that Second Self has personally compiled over the years to help increase your SEO.  We also link all your social networks, blogs and websites together so that you can increase your "Google Juice", sending you to the top of the search engine rankings.

With the use of social networks simply exploding over the last couple of years, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with your social networks.  Second Self Virtual Assistance can create and optimize Facebook fan pages to help you capture the attention of potential clients with a personalized landing page that links to your website, blogs, etc.

Second Self was happy to procure an exclusive deal with, a new social networking site.  The purpose of is to combine the best traits of Facebook and LinkedIn, with the added benefit of a blog thrown in.  For any new account set up through Second Self Virtual Assistance, will offer a free one year upgrade to a Premium account.  This is a savings of $300.

Trying to keep up with social media is an ongoing process.  In an effort to stay on top of changes in social media, Second Self Virtual Assistance is currently enrolled in Social Media Marketing classes that teach the latest and greatest methods to market yourself via social media.

If you're in need of a real estate virtual assistant, feel free to contact me.  For a limited time only, if you mention that you heard our interview on BlogTalkRadio, we'll give you a discount on your first month's services.  I look forward to hearing from you.

I have no idea how you find the time to do what you do as it is, Carra.  You're one heck of a busy woman!  But, I think you like it that way, too.  We had such a great time talking to you this morning.  I'm so happy we had a chance to meet here in the Rain and cultivate such a wonderful relationship.  You're such an open, honest woman.  I love it!

Couldn't make the show, but you covered it off nicely.  Now I can take it all in on "my time" and not the client's time.  Thanks.

Carra, I missed another show. I went to the contact link and tried both numbers 928.453.9403 or 866.921.5364 and the first provided a new number that may be a fax number; the second number is not a working number.  So, I will just email them.  Thanks for the highlights of the show.

Glad you found the information valuable.  Actually this was a re-blog of what Second Self Virtual Assistance does.  They do great work as you can see by the post!  Concise and to the point!

Heather, Heather,

I am running out of time which IS why I need your services.  Pam and I talked yesterday and will follow up again today about some formatting and connecting with the facebook fan page, the website etc... the backside of the "stuff"  is not my thing... so I am excited to have all of you help with keeping those dots connected.... and helping me do all that keeps me free to write my own posts and comments... It is just too much to do it all and you have the expertise for the backside.  We are taking off to the next level to find BALANCE!
