6 Great Apps for Networking with Other Property Managers
If you’re a landlord who wants to network with others in your industry, there are now plenty of smartphone apps that can make this process much easier. These apps are designed to help you find events and meet other landlords and can also help you keep organized and ensure your contacts are all in one place. Here are six apps you may want to consider if you’re a landlord so you can network the right way.
Meetup.com features a free mobile app that quickly allows you to find events related to your interests. If you’re a landlord, you should be on the lookout for one of the many landlord and property manager events hosted through the Meetup.com platform. Search through this app to see if there is a landlord event in your area or simply create your own if you want to get the fun started.
Attending a conference, seminar, or other event means you’ll meet many people in a short period. With the Evernote app, you can photograph any business card you receive with your smartphone camera, and the app will upload all the relevant contact information directly into your address book. You can also include notes on each person to help you remember exactly who you’ve met directly through the Evernote interface. Evernote is also loaded with other great features you can use as a landlord, allowing you to make to-do lists and track your expenses.
Vivastream is a great app for finding people you know at conferences and staying on top of the specific seminars and lectures they’re attending. When you go to an event, Vivastream will provide a live ticker of your friends, contacts and others that will let you know what they’re doing at all times. You can also add tags or apply filters to find people with your same interests, allowing you to strike up conversations and build your contact list.
LinkedIn has over 200 million members from just about every business and industry in the world, and now this website also comes with an intuitive app. It’s a great way to access professional contacts and CVs, and the app also provides an excellent news feed relevant to your specific interests.
CamCard allows you to scan business cards with your smartphone and send your own e-business card to contacts via text message, e-mail or Bluetooth. It’s a great way to share your details with someone in the event that you leave your business cards at home. You can also easily build a searchable database of business cards with the CamCard app to find the information you want quickly.
You may already be familiar with Twitter, but if you’re going to landlord conferences or events, it’s important that you have the Twitter app in your networking arsenal. Conferences almost always use hashtags through Twitter to advertise seminars and get people excited about events. It also allows you to interact at these events by retweeting posts that you find interesting and finding out who else shares your specific interests.
Ultimately, all of these apps can make networking as a landlord a whole lot easier. Stay in contact with other movers and shakers in the rental industry and build your network the right way with this useful technology.
