    Can you tell me how to log into the eagency back office. Thank you.

  2. Marianna thank you this will be very helpful. Your webinar was informative.

  3. Hi Mariana,
    Before I sign up for this blog, do I have to have Top Producer?

  4. Jennifer – I hope this helps!

    Denise – I know I answered this in an email, but for anyone reading…

    You do NOT have to have a Top Producer account to take advantage of the FREE eAgentC blog that I talked about here.

  5. Hi Marianna…well, I got the blog set up after listing to your coaching today. Now if I can just overcome the writer’s block! I have some questions about the widgets, but I can wait for the coaching classes. I didn’t see it specifically covered in the agenda, will it be? I don’t know what they are exactly but see them on the set up page so they must be important, right? Is the address we give to people http://www.marchantteam.featuredblog.com or is there any easier name we can choose to direct people there?
    Just out of curiousity, how many blogs do you have?

  6. Cindy – Congrats on the blog!
    Here are a few answers for you:
    Content ideas: https://mykwblog.wordpress.com/2008/05/29/dr-mariana-wagners-one-post-cure-all-for-writers-block/

    Widgets are interesting, but not horribly important. However, I will be doing a supplemental session on widgets for people who enroll in the course.

    Go to GoDaddy and purchase a domain name and “point” it to your blog. When someone types in that domain name it will go right to your blog, but it will still read ” http://www.marchantteam.featuredblog.com ” in the address bar.

    I have a few blogs: Colorado Springs Real Estate Connection, myKWblog (this one), a custom home builder blog (new) and 2 niche blogs. I also am a writer for Agent Genius.

    I hope that this is helpful!!
