Thanks to everyone for the interest! Plan to see consistent updates to our new platform (the site you are on right now : ) We spent a ton of time just getting WellcomeMat2 ready to rock with huge amounts of usage. Now we are back in innovation mode. Keep us in the loop about things that you'd like to see happen around these parts.

Nick! How the heck are you man? I was in NJ last week - first time seeing the post Sandy mess. Don't feel bad: we got the floods recently : )
We have postponed the profile pic thing because we are far more focused on the software system and less so on the public pages of WellcomeMat (other than the Neighborhood forum of course). As a heads up, the profile pic item is in our roadmap and will come to fruition.

@TerryW Terry...keep pushing to find and work with Top Producing agents. Also, be focused on brokerages that are great and branding/marketing. DIY video is not going away, but you can be sure that high quality is winning. This topic (DIY versus hiring a pro) has always been present in real estate video. We always say that DIY is communication and professionally created videos are marketing.

@TerryW Sorry about the trouble Terry! We are focusing on the comments here in The Neighborhood more than via Google+.
@BurnzEyeView the event ended right when you submitted this question. Feel free to email us and we'll forward.
@BurnzEyeView Good Morning!
@JohnColey Thanks for the questions John! Have you considered working with an editor and doing the portions of the production that you feel great about doing?
Also...on the aerial side of things, check out our last post and feel free to ask WellcomeMat to connect you to anyone on the panel you want to talk to:
Go go Marci "The Setter" Williams! Who has a question for Sterner? Ready to rock.
Thank you for the question(s) Titus! In our experience, brokers are very interested in stepping up their video offerings but where they are most hung up is in regards to how to affordably succeed with video. I would say that focusing on helping them to create a marketing package (think video products that can be ordered from you) for their agents and brand level videos for their firm is a great start. Brokers want to attract and retain the best agents from my experience so far. Video is a definite boost - all you have to do is address their business side concerns while doing great work on the production side. It's a challenge!

Hi all! We are having some technical difficulties with the Hangout. It's likely flickering for you as well. Stand by please : )
Best article I have read on startup leadership in a long time. Very well done and articulated. Thank you!

Hi Jamin and thanks for checking WellcomeMat out! Let me know if you experienced a slow load time with one or more of our videos - not sure if that statement was directed at us or not.
Perhaps the best, most recent overview of WellcomeMat's position in the universe is found here http://www.inman.com/2013/02/05/wellcomemat-positions-itself-real-estates-anti-youtube/
The title is a bit strong : ) However, it does well to describe our mission.

Hi Chris! I believe someone reached out to you to move things forward. Thanks for reaching out!

I feel your pain, but only in the context of building a media company. My team has a highly profitable model, but we are leveraging video assets that have a huge pay out for content owners. In other words, their content just keeps paying them (we are software enabling our customers to maximize the return on video investments).
If I were you, I'd focus on real-time video aggregation and circle back with higher quality content for stories that stick.

Hello and thanks for the question! I think it would help to have more context regarding your specific goals. What kind of flyers are you creating?

@FredLight Fred...you have had an account on WellcomeMat2 all along - it just happens to be one of a bunch of accounts you have with us : ) We'll email the username to you now!

For the record, Vivek Wadwa did a study, and article, about age and commercial success. Success in tech was far and away in favor of older entrepreneurs. I understand the premise of your post--which is that there is some form of prejudice against older people in the Valley right now--but wanted to support your arguments, especially because I am 7 years into a startup that I founded when I was 29 : )
