Business Technology Forum — Concierge to all things tech!

I recently read a quote from an anonymous source that reads, “How you do anything, is how you do everything.” The quote is referencing doing even the smallest task at one hundred percent because it will translate into you doing everything at one hundred percent.

But what about technology? Should we be doing anything and everything with tech? It certainly streamlines tasks and makes it seem as though it will help us run at one hundred percent. My question to you though, is how do you know what technology is right for you?

Anymore, we’re bombarded with different apps and technology to streamline our business. We’ve all been told, “this app will help you do things faster and smoother.” Then, right as you get used to the first app, a new app comes along that’s better than the first.

So how do you know what’s right for you? How do you know when you should implement something into your business? I think it would be awesome if we had a gatekeeper of sorts that vetted all this new technology that is sold to us every day.

What I’ve found to be pretty cool is that is exactly what the Business Technology Forum does for Columbus REALTORS® membership. I would be lying if I said two years ago, I knew what “Biz Tech” at the Association was; honestly, I had no clue.

This year our goal is to help members understand what the Business Technology Forum does. We’re going to hold fun learning events like Jason Perkins teaching a CRM class in March; helping with a Tech Day in May; and even hosting a possible CE class with our own Sean Carpenter later in the year! Aside from the events we’ll hold, be on the lookout for short videos from your peers talking about what kind of tech they use, and other videos diving into what technology the Business Technology Forum will be vetting for the rest of the members.

And it’s okay, you don’t have to be “tech savvy” to have an opinion. We would love for you to come!
