In this episode, you'll learn..

  • Social Media is absolutely essential for real estate professionals
    • People look at your profiles before ever speaking to you.  
    • Social proof is critical in the decision-making process- friends 'liking' you makes all the difference and increases conversions.
    • Social increases your 'audience' of potential clients
  • What you post to social differentiates you from the competition
  • Allows you to demonstrate expertise beyond the inventory you represent
  • Frequent posts keep you top of mind with clients, prospective clients and referral partners
  • Facebook offers a great alternative to setting up a stand-alone website for every property
    • A website is another 'property' that you need to market.  Why double your effort driving people to a website when what you really want is to drive them your property?  
    • Facebook pages offer all the same functionality- add images, videos, and descriptions- plus there is a built-in audience.
