Have you heard of the newest social media website, Pinterst?
It is a very interesting and entertaing site and it is quickly growing. http://pinterest.com
So how does this affect us realtors? It's not a direct effect but we can definately use it. Pinterest does not allow brands or business to go out and use Pinterest to promote their services or work, but there are definately ways to use Pinterest to promote what your business is or give yourself more personality using Pinterest.
Mashable (a great website for learning about social media) posted this article yesterday about brands and Pinterest.
If you look at the list some of the brands make sense once you realize who is using Pinterest the most (mainly moms or crafters but it is slowly growing to more). What's important is reading how they are using Pinterest.
Example: (Pulled from Article)
The retailer appeals to the shopoholic with boards like "Shoes that make us swoon," but also includes quirky stuff like "I have a weakness for..." that define the brand without necessarily pitching a specific product.
So how do we do similar work as Real Estate Agents?
You Matter Omaha just got our invitation to Pinterest today and we started with 6 boards:
"For the Home" "Favorite Places & Spaces" & "Dream Home" just to name a few. We plan to give our followers ideas for updating, decorating, staging, and other interesting things. It's really just a place for us to keep ideas and give our followers information to help them for their home and dreams. When it comes to social media it's really about what you want to do with what you are given and interacting with your fans & followers. Social Media gives you a personality!
