One of my goals this year is to be out on the cutting edge in my Property M.O.B. business. What does that mean exactly? Well, there are mentors I admire who always seem to be using the latest in marketing, technology, etc. and I said to myself, “Self, why can’t I be one of those people too?” So, here we are.
In my quest to be “cutting edge” this year, I’ve come across a very useful tool that I wanted to share with you all. It’s called Slack.
Slack is an app/software that acts as a platform for work teams to communicate/collaborate on projects, and overall just get things done more efficiently. In fact, I think their slogan is something like “Slack: get things done” (…or something like that). Anyway, the finer points of their slogan is not the point of this article.
Truth be told, I’ve been using Slack for real estate investing for over a year now, but my team and I have only been using in its most basic capacity-collaborative chat for real estate team communication. We all know the importance of communication in real estate. However, when you get down to it, Slack is way, way, WAY more powerful than that.
So, what’s the point of Slack? Its power comes from its ability to integrate across platforms. For example, if you’re a hardcore Mobster (like myself) you probably operate your wholesaling business using Zoho CRM. Well, guess what?
