On 09/30/2011, I spoke at REBARCAMP Kansas City. The Kansas City ReBar Camp is an unconference focusing on Real Estate Agents, Real Estate Marketing through Internet Marketing & Social Media.
I gave two presentations, one in the morning involving Basic Blogging for Real Estate Professionals and one in the afternoon involving QR Codes & Short URLs for Real Estate Professionals.
SESSION 1: Beginning Blogging – we covered…Why Blog, Personal Branding & Marketing. I outlined a small checklist for getting your blog started and walked through the WordPress Interface and discussed some basic WordPress/Blogging Terminology.
SESSION 2: QR Codes for Real Estate Professionals – we covered.. What are QR Codes? What are Short URLS? Creating QR Codes and integrating those codes with your google analytics using UTM tagging (Google URL Builder). Note: Some parts of the presentation are also discussed in Episode 3 of the PrintPodcast, “URL Shorteners and QR Codes: Creation, Management and Analytics for Print Marketers – PrintPodcast.com”.

In December 2010, I launched Podcast Studios (PodcastStudios.com) as a Domain Licensing Corporation website. The idea is to create compelling audio, video,a webinars and screencasts for my own internet ventures and also provide a type of web and audio studio for TooBaRoo Internet Marketing’s Corporate Clients. My belief is that relevant compelling content is going to be the lynchpin for strong SEO rankings, effective branding and high conversions. Consequently, I wanted TooBaRoo Internet Marketing to be in a position to offer those content marketing and content production services.
We currently publish a series a podcasts for our own marketing purposes. The current list of podcasts are:
1) Internet Marketing Podcast (InternetMarketingPodcast.com)
2) Blog Podcast (BlogPodcast.com)
3) Print Podcast (PrintPodcast.com)
4) Font Podcast (FontPodcast.com)
5) Law Podcast (LawPodcast.com)
Site Development: We developed the Podcast Studio’s website using WordPress and customized an existing theme with some fonts from the Google font directory using the wordpress google fonts plugin by Adrian 3 and also tweaked the main templates to adjust to for a larger number of
Podcast Hosting: We chose Libsyn (Liberated Syndication) for hosting the accounts under the PodcastStudios.com. We created Libsyn Pro account with the help of Rob Walch of Libsyn. Rob is a friend and also the VP of Podcaster Relations for Wizzard Media (Wizzard owns Libsyn). I have been attending his podcast meetup group in Kansas City for over a year and Rob was very generous with his time and helpful with his advice.

Internet Marketing Podcast Begins Broadcasting November 2010
About the Podcast Project
I have been planning to launch an Internet Marketing Podcast for several years. However, being a domainer and the owner of an internet marketing agency, I wanted to make sure the podcast was able to launch under the best domain name possible — a good generic .com domain. Consequently, a couple of years ago I starting tracking the domain name InternetMarketingPodcast.com. In September of 2009 we obtained “Internet Marketing Podcast” in a drop from Pool.com. (Note: as a backup plan, we hand registered the shorter “InternetMarketingCast.com” domain in 2008) As of early October 2010, the new website for the podcast from TooBaRoo can be found at the URL InternetMarketingPodcast.com.
The Podcasting Resurgence
In addition, we feel the available listener base for podcasts will continue to increase. First, mobile devise use is dramatically increasing. Second, iTunes is available on both the iPhone and the iPad. Third, Blackberry recently offered an iTunes like service for podcasts on Blackberry devises putting podcasts subscription capabilities in the hands of tens of millions of new potential listeners. Fourth, Android phones come with a variety of Podcasting subscription options. Last, learning through listening to podcasts allows people to multi-task while staying informed.
The Goal/s for the Show
We want the show to become one of the top internet marketing podcasts by providing business owners, entrepreneurs, in-house, ad agency and PR marketing professionals with valuable and actionable information on a regular basis. In addition, the actual process of producing, hosting and marketing our own show about what we do — internet marketing, will hopefully make us better at what we do and also communicate that expertise and enthusiasm to our audience.
The first shows are set to stream in 11/2010.
Check the main internet marketing podcast site, or the new Internet Marketing LinkedIn Group or iTunes for additional show updates and information.

My Kansas City based website development company, TooBaRoo Internet Marketing launched a new site, CorporateInternetStrategy.com, devoted to marketing enterprise level internet strategy consulting services to its new and existing clients.
We detected a need for this type of independent enterprise-level consulting service. It has been my experience that too often marketing stakeholders are receiving their Internet strategy and marketing advice from the same individuals who are charged with developing those systems. Being an independent, consulting only, solution, we are able to provide our clients with honest, valuable information and recommendations based upon our own knowledge and experiences in the areas of Internet development and Internet marketing.
CorporateInternetStrategy.com – Content Plan
We plan on periodically posting blog entries devoted to related to Corporate Internet Strategy as they relate to Marketing Resource Management, the creation and maintenance of multiple sites, corporate domain name portfolio Management and developing an efficient Corporate Internet Strategy framework. This future content will be summaries of lessons that we have learned while operating TooBaRoo Internet Marketing my Kansas City Internet Marketing & Development Company.
CorporateInternetStrategy.com – Continuing Internet Education
Another aspect of the CorporateInternetStrategy.com will be to introduce a series of lunch and learn type seminars that are part of an informal Internet Marketing curriculum TooBaRoo is developing. A key element our Corporate Internet Strategy business plan is to create an ongoing relationship with our clients through continued education. We want to make them better internet marketers by not only adding some standardization in their corporate procedures but by also increasing their internet education level.
Under The Hood: About the New Site – WordPress + Headway + A Few Hours
TooBaRoo created the site using WordPress and the new HeadwayTheme framework. It was an interesting learning process. This was our first use of Headway. The site was up and running within a few hours of installation. Minimal “tweaking” was done to the standard theme, but some additional css styles and leaf elements will be added post launch. Our goal was to get the site up and running prior to a Webmaster Radio appearance related to corporate domain portfolio management scheduled for Wednesday, 09/29/2009 so that we could drop the URL during the show to drive some traffic to the new site.

Samson Zoom H4n Digital Podcast Recorder
I have been looking at upgrading the TooBaRoo Podcast Production and Domain Licensing Corporation Podcast Production equipment. After doing extensive online research and having a couple of conversations with a few podcasters. We’ve decided on using the Samson Zoom H4n for our podcasts.
I attended a couple of tradeshows and was interviewed by a few podcasters using the predecessor of the Zoom H4n, the H4. After listening to the shows and knowing the recording conditions, I was greatly impressed. Consequently, I was predisposed to the H4. Now that the H4n is available we thought we would upgrade/supplement our current Samson USB mics to these digital recorders.
Why The New Podcasting Equipment?
I am beginning pre-production on a few upcoming podcasts involving Internet Marketing and Analytics. The Internet Marketing Experts at TooBaRoo Internet Marketing in Kansas City will act as the podcast producers and also provide the weekly/monthly hosts. They will interview other internet marketing professionals and service and application providers. Each show will cover topics involving internet strategy and internet marketing. Domain Licensing Corporation, a domain monetization company, owns the domain InternetMarketingCast.com the initial podcast will launch under this URL.
If you have any other Podcasting equipment recommendations or experiences with the Samson Zoom H4n please send us your comments.

The cyber land rush for FaceBook “Vanity URL’s” started on June 11 at 12:00:01 AM. I was in the mix early and got my first choice of “InternetConsulting”. I was going back and forth between “internet marketing” versus “internet consulting” versus “internet development” However, since you are stuck with this name, I thought that broader area of “internet consulting” would be the better name in the long run. See my new FaceBook Moniker below…
My New Facebook Vanity URL is "Internet Consulting"
Being a domainer since 1997-1998, made me realize that getting in early on a land rush can make all the difference. The FaceBook community is huge, as of 04/09 approximately 200 Million Users. — That was up about 50 million since January 2009. Not Bad.
Consequently, I wanted to represent myself in that community with a more descriptive and easier to spell name than “Breht Burri”. There are too many spelling variations of both “Breht” and “Burri”. Furthermore, It does not describe what I primarily do for a living, which is Internet Consulting for TooBaRoo LLC, in the areas of Internet Marketing and Internet Development. So going forward my Facebook page, which needs to be updated and completed, will be http://facebook.com/internetconsulting. Check back in a few weeks, hopefully I will have added some content to that new FaceBook page.
Posted: January 11th, 2009 | Author: Breht Burri | Filed under: FileMaker, Joomla, Web Sites & Projects |
Domain Licensing Corporation recently launched (November 2008) a Joomla CMS based Domain Name Marketplace site called DNoploy.com. The DNopoly.com site was created as a place to direct prospective domain buyers to some of the domain names for sale by Domain Licensing Corporation and/or its clients and partners.
DNopoly.com | Domain Name Marketplace & Brokerage
Domain Licensing Corporation is trying to sell about 5% of its domain inventory per year to fund further development of its domain name portfolio. A database database driven site was needed to organize the thousands of pages of inventory and domain listings.
Joomla provided us with a quick out of the box Content Management start for the framework. However, the majority of the pages are Joomla wrapped pages driven by a custom MySQL database that categorizes and organizes the Domain Names. Rather than build a web based admin frontend for the MySQL backend we are using FileMaker Pro to administer the Domain Name content. FileMaker’s ability to link directly to the MySQL data saves development time on projects that have only a small number of admin users. A few filemaker seats are easily more economical than building a custom backend management tool. FileMaker’s out of the box MySQL connectivity allowed us to save significant development time, and give use future development flexibility by avoiding each front end change also causing additonal admin access programming.

Each week I listen to dozens of podcasts and I’ve been doing this for several years. Over the years that I have subscribed to, dropped and/or re-subscribed to hundreds of podcasts. Most of these are in the areas of Internet Marketing, SEO, Social Media, Affiliate Marketing, Domain Names, Politics and Film. From that list of podcasts a few fall into my “Anticipation List”.
“Anticipation List podcasts are the casts that cause you to open iTunes and click the podcast refresh button because you hope a new episode has been uploaded.” — Breht Burri
Here are the casts that meet this criteria for me in couple of different topic areas…
1. Filmspotting – Movies | Movie reviews, interviews and top 5 lists
with Adam Kempenaar and Matty Robinson. One of the best podcasts on the internet. Talented but self-deprecating hosts who are serious about film make this a great hour of cinema talk. | Weekly, sometimes more.
2. 10 Golden Rules – Internet Marketing | Published A few times a month
3. Academy Internet – Internet Marketing | Published Weekly most of the Time
4. Domain Masters – Domaining | A Podcast for professional Domainers from Webmaster Radio. | Weekly

8. TWIL “This Week In Law” – Law | Rountable type discussion of Legal topics | One a month, sometimes less.
