You Are The [Lip] BALM {Thank You}

You are the balm chapstick

A simple gesture of appreciation goes such a long way.

I was recently selected at work to be part of a new culture team that focuses on everything from changing the way we work to creating a culture of awesomeness. Today we rolled out our first round of announcements at an all company meeting including a new set of core values, a fresh way to have [and NOT have] meetings and more. As the company left the meeting our team set up a little surprise as a thank you for everyone’s hard work. Here is what we came up with:

A Chat with Jay Baer About Social Media, Real Estate and Skyping with The Pope

Social Pros Podcast Social Media King Jay Baer

Lindsay listanski social mediaI first heard NYT best selling author Jay Baer speak about two years ago at a socialmedia.org event in Orlando and was drawn to his dynamic delivery as well as his no nonsense philosophy as it relates to social media, advertising and customer care. Plus he had one heck of a suit on.

We recently had an exchange on Twitter which led to an invitation to be a guest on his podcast Social Pros. Jay’s show is one of the top 5 most listened to podcasts in the social category. To be invited was such an honor and I couldn’t wait to share all the great things our team has been doing. We covered everything from Coldwell Banker’s leadership position in the smart home tech space to our use of 360 degree videos.

Jay and his co host Adam Brown were fantastic hosts and I had a great time speaking with them about how forward thinking our global network of 80,000 real estate agents are in the social space. I especially loved our final few minutes of the show discussing how Pope Francis has adopted social media into the way he delivers his message on a mass scale. You can listen to the show here:

If you had to lose your wallet or your phone, which would you choose?

logo-markObviously losing either would be a major inconvenience but I am willing to bet most of you would choose keeping your phone. As our phones become more integrated with our lives it was only a matter of time that they became our wallets too. In fact, social transactions via mobile devices is a major topic of conversation in the tech space right now. Read more

How To Make Your Home Smarter for $1,000 (or less)

After experiencing this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year I have become absolutely fascinated by smart home technology. In fact, as soon as I got home I ordered the Sengled Pulse, which is a light bulb that also plays music. (Bright idea, amirite?!)

This month I had the opportunity to represent my company, Coldwell Banker Real Estate, on a special Smart Home segment on NBC’s Open House NYC at this gorgeous home in Montville NJ.

I can’t say enough nice things about the production team from NBC and I am incredibly grateful to our VP of Brand Engagement, David Marine for allowing me to have the opportunity to represent our brand on TV. Take a look and see how you can make your home “smart” for $1000 with products from Nest, Lutron, Sengled and August.

Basketball Puppies Real Estate and Social Media

This week I was asked to present on Broadway in NYC for SocialMedia.Org.

11062044_798966268806_3007879069320261964_nI have been striving for this opportunity ever since the first time I attended one of their events nearly four years ago and was thrilled to share insight about Coldwell Banker’s Homes Best Friend Campaign.

SocialMedia.org Member Meetings are the most useful, efficient, and productive meetings for social media leaders at big brands. I am always amazed at not only sitting in the same room as people like me from companies like Microsoft, Coca Cola and Nike but also at how generous everyone is with sharing their best practices, advice and solutions to just about any question that a member has.
