Helping less experienced agents

Posted by Nathaniel Fruchter on 16 Mar under Behind the scenes, People and Ideas

Agent Elastika’s post on helping less experienced agents really got me writing.

The EVOKE network is something special.  It has pulled in agents from all over the world and we’re really doing something great.  However, it’s easy to forget about technological limitations if you’re sitting here in the United States or Europe. Some agents might not know the intricacies of Yahoo Pipes or RSS.  Maybe English is a second language for some and there’s a language barrier there. Others might be in central Africa and might not have a nice 5 mbps cable connection that they can use.   Others might have the resources, but they aren’t too knowledgeable about navigating a complex social network like this one.  And that lack of know-how might prevent their great ideas from spreading to others.

This is why I want to really commend Agent Elastika and all of the others who are out there trying to lend a helping hand to agents who might need a little help getting started.  You’re contributing to the flow of ideas and you’re helping others make their mark on the world.  You’re truly EVOKE heroes.  Thank you!

    Less experienced seemed like the right place for me:
    Forgive me if I’m in the wrong blog but why can’t I power up?

    Hi Aisling, I just saw your post, decided to try it and I can’t vote either on this page so it’s not resolved nor is it just you. I’m trying to find where to report possible bugs and if I do will let you know.

    Hi Aisling, I’m still having trouble where to report bugs. It looks like the blog isn’t there anymore perhaps thats why. I send an email to the user but no response yet.
