Mike Simonsen at Altos Research just introduced me to Meebo, another nifty little blog tool, which I suspect will start popping up all over the place shortly. Following Mike’s lead, I installed it — it’s the “Chat” box on the far right side of the screen.
What does it do? In geek-speak, it’s a web-based universal chat client.
What does that mean? In Realtor speak, it enables Web 2.0 “Floor Time.”
Floor Time is a venerated lead-generation real estate tradition, the equivalent of doctors being “On call.” The agent on floor duty has first dibs on incoming phone queries and on walk-ins; success in landing clients is mixed at best, but it certainly never hurts to try it.
Back to Meebo … if somebody is browsing my site, they can see whether or not I’m online. If I am and they have a question, they simply pop over to the chat box and type it in! I respond the same way — by typing. If I’m offline, they can still type a question, and I’ll get it when I next log in.
