May we suggest the newspaper icon for ICIWorld since in a sense we are like the classified ads of a newspaper but on the Internet and to a market 600 times as large as a newspaper. (See Statistics and Over 600,000,000 people on the Internet.  We know this is kind of hard for new people to believe but it is the case, I would get excited about it.)

One use in real estate is the ability to produce this onto your screen while you are talking with prospects on the phone. It only takes five seconds and you will have over $6 Billion of Haves and over $1 Trillion of buyers on the screen.

Any link in this file is fast all the time because they are html files created daily before 6am! Another example of a simple icon is our Quick View of the World (backups) made each morning by 6am. Here is the link: See if you can make this an icon now.  Or you can make any link in this file an icon!

While you are on the phone, you can open this file and talk to prospects and clients about Haves and Wants.

In this file do not overlook the Wants.  It also makes for a powerful listing presentation when you can print out a list of buyers!  Demonstrate to people how well connected to the industry you are with a list of buyers that you literally can pick up the phone and start making appointments to show. It cans absolutely be that fast to your next showing!

You may even set up more than one icon, one for shopping centers, one for apartment buildings, etc.

You can delete any icon by simply highlighting it and hitting your delete button.
