roo solutions

We, the founders of Roo Solutions, have decades of experience as homeowners and specialists. Like so many others, we’ve had to rely on unknown service professionals when unexpected needs arise (think plumbing leaks or selling assistance). With Roo Solutions, we propose a smart solution for homeowners in search of real estate specialists.

We want to provide service contacts for all real estate needs. Homeowners, at no cost, can review specific professionals in their area of need using “View Virtual Resumes” and/or simply post a need for service. Homeowners will get responses from specialists and have profiles convenient for review. From that point, a homeowner can interview and negotiate with the specialist they prefer.

Homeowners

Did we mention there is no cost? You can search properties and specialists in the field of real estate at your leisure. Or, simply post a real estate need and specialists will contact you by email or phone. Think of this as waving your arm for assistance and having it seen for miles. You can add as much detail as you like to your post (even pictures of locations, repair-work, problem areas, etc.). There is no obligation on your behalf except dealing fairly with professionals you contact.

Specialists

Roo Solutions gives you the opportunity to maximize leads for a small monthly subscription. Once you have registered with us, you will list the area of expertise you provide and the regions you service. Any homeowner posting a need in your area will generate a lead to which you can respond conveniently and rapidly. The lead generation is immediate and Roo Solutions does not manage the posts or direct specialists in any priority.

You can set your business apart by making your “Virtual Resume” as professional and complete as possible when you register. Reduce a homeowner’s unease with “strangers” by adding pictures of your work, referrals and testimonials from prior clients, and footage of yourself and your team.

Google Rolls Out Checkin Deals for Latitude Nationwide

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Original Article can be found on Mashable.com

Google Latitude, the search giant’s location-sharing mobile app, is launching checkin offers nationwide, giving users the ability to unlock discounts with a handful of launch partners.

Much like Foursquare and Facebook, Latitude now reveals different offers if a user checks in to locations hosting a Latitude deal. However, Google adds a twist to the traditional checkin offer with its “status” system. Offers such as 20% off at American Eagle Outfitters can only be unlocked with statuses such as Regular, VIP or Guru, although these titles are customizable by Google’s partners. They are acquired by checking in to a specific place multiple times.

Google’s initial list of partners includes Arby’s, Macy’s, RadioShack, Finish Line, Famous Footwear, Great Clips, Naturalizer, Tasti D-Lite, Quiznos, Wireless Zone, Cellairis, PostNet and American Eagle Outfitters. Quiznos is offering customers a free sub when they buy one of equal or greater value (and the title of “Champion of Taste”), while Finish Line is giving a $10 discount on purchases over $50. Most Latitude deals offer similar discounts.

Google only added checkins to Latitude recently, and the iPhone app only got checkins two weeks ago, so today’s announcement is rather aggressive. Google clearly understands that it’s way behind in the local deals space. It’s the same reason why Google tried (and failed) to acquire Groupon and why it’s building its own Groupon competitor.

Google’s new Latitude offers are available for Google Maps for Android (which includes Latitude) and for Latitude for iPhone, although its iOS app doesn’t include status level achievements yet.

What do you think of Google Latitude’s nationwide deals? Is it a smart move by Google, or is it late to the party?

Everything You Need To Know About Google’s +1

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Original article can be found at Mashable.com

Google’s announcement that it’s adding a “+1” button to incorporate sentiment into its search results raised a lot of questions not addressed in the company’s official announcement. We spoke with Google rep Jim Prosser about +1. Here are some of our questions answered. What other questions do you have about the new product?

Why is Google doing this?
Aside from the fact that it represents another way to compete with Facebook, Google’s official line is that it will make search results more germane. Says Prosser: “People consult their friends and other contacts on decisions. It’s very easy and lightweight way to make search results more relevant.”

Will the number of +1s affect search rankings?
Prosser says no, but adds that it’s something Google is “very interested” in incorporating in some form at some point.

Who are these contacts we’re seeing next to the +1s?
They are from Google Contacts, which come from various Google products, most notably Gmail, Buzz and Reader.

Will we see Facebook friends giving +1s at some point?
Not likely. Prosser draws a distinction between the “open web” and Facebook’s closed system. Google is up for incorporating open social media apps, but not Facebook. And Facebook isn’t likely to be interested in bolstering +1, a competitor to its “Like” button.

What about Twitter?
That’s a different story. Google already incorporates Twitter data into its searches, though Prosser says there are no immediate plans for integrating Twitter results with +1.

What about using data from other social networks?
Prosser says Google is interested in using more data from Flickr and Quora, which Google considers “open web” apps. Initially, though, you won’t see your Flickr or Quora friends’ +1 recommendations.

When will we start seeing the +1s?
Not for a few months, at least not en masse. Those who are interested in experimenting with +1 right away can go to Google.com/experimental. Otherwise, Prosser says only a “very small percentage” of searches and sites will have the +1 button within the next few weeks.

Will +1 be incorporated into banner ads?
Not right away, though Google is interested in that possibility.

Can marketers game the system by running “check +1 to enter” promotions?
It seems that Google frowns on this sort of thing, but it’s unclear whether the company expressly forbids it. Meanwhile, to maintain the integrity of the results, Prosser recommends that marketers don’t tweak their copy to ensure more +1s.

Searching for Google Instant answers

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

As we predicted a couple weeks ago, when we first posted about Google Instant, there’s a lot of discussion about its impact on search engine optimization (SEO).  For a quick review,  Google Instant is a new feature in which Google returns results as you type.  As this article points out, there’s still a lot to hash out when it comes to the influence of Google Instant on your SEO.

First, people are still finding out about and getting used to Google Instant.  Users have the option of turning off Google Instant, which some are choosing, so the full effect may not be felt for a while.  A knee-jerk reaction may not be appropriate in this case.

Second, the one impact that the SEO industry is seeing is a drop in traffic to sites using long tail keywords.  You can learn more about this on this page. Essentially companies that use long words or phrases to target specific, niche markets to improve traffic may see a drop in traffic because users are clicking on results before they’ve completed typing their search.

It may be premature to change your SEO strategy right now with everything in flux.  However, if you’re eager to make some changes, adding in some shorter keywords or phrases might be in order.  For more information on SEO and how we can help improve your ranking and traffic, contact us to learn about our website, social media, and SEO services.
