More 'Likes'. More Followers: Savvy Ways To Mix & Mingle

Time for some real talk.
Posting snapshots of your current meal on Facebook doesn’t do anyone any good.
If anything, it’ll just remind people that they’re hungry or why they became a vegetarian.

We recommend dishing out the main course (and purpose) of social media - exposure and networking by underscoring your individuality, expressing your creative flair and putting your own personal (and memorable) stamp on everything you draft and/or share.

Americans spend more than 2 hours on mobile devices
and social sites everyday.
It's imperative to stay savvy and relatable when mingling online.

1) Post haikus or short words of wisdom (think “fortune-cookies”).
Avoid posting large chunks of text. If you need to post something lengthy, make sure it’s formatted in segments with spaces and easy on the eyes.

2) Let available content (like imagery and quotes) inspire you.
Some of us read inspirational “memes” all day. Figure out ways to correlate ones you especially like to real estate and share them. If you can’t find a significant parallel to your business – share it anyway.

3) Take stylish and wholesome “selfies”.
Snap shots with colleagues at the office, with successful clients at their home, with family members, at open houses – you name it. Any image that will humanize you. (Instagram filters can also rejuvenate your appearance).

4) Hashtags (#) work.
Yes. When used correctly, these serve a purpose and can increase your visibility, convey what you’re all about, and unite and rally your prospective audience (i.e. – just fill in the underlined portion with your info: #HomesByYourName, #BuyAndSellWithYourName #HomesInYourLocation).

5) Ask and you shall receive.

- Many Facebook aficionados have taken quizzes. Do a quick search - they're out there. Share one that you can tie back into real estate (i.e.- What State Do You Actually Belong To?", "What City Should You Live In?")

- Then, attach a message: “By the way, have you thought about your home value? Would you be interested in learning more about the market in your area?” (This is where Seller's Corner
comes in handy).

 

While you're at it...
6) Take advantage of your AgentView Branded Mobile App
- Allows you to view the closest listings to your current location automatically (including listing details and photos pulled right from your MLS).

- Places your name, photo and contact info on every MLS Listing.

-
Allows your leads and clients to make informed real estate decisions without going anywhere (or to anyone) else.

Great advice... all of it.  I try not to post just to be posting.  I prefer quality over quantity.  And, I particularly agree about personal creativity.  

Thanks for the post, Tim at PropertyMinder Inc. !

Many people do not understand social media. Variety is important to keep interest. It takes thought to do it right.

Thanks for the good post.

 I can't believe you don't have more comments on this great post!  So important to be thoughtful when posting to social media.  Seeing someone's dinner is just plain boring and not interesting.  But if you post information about the restaurant, that's helpful information!

P.S. - And does folks posting food (steaming piles of meat and such) annoy you as much as it does me?
