Websites, Social Media, SEO, Google Analytics ..How Can I Keep Up ??

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Service

 

I remember not than long ago, I was pretty inept at Social Media and the internet, or even having a website as few as 8 years ago....  It all seemed very daunting, and a bit overwhelming with all the different platforms... but I soon realized I better get acquainted with it, or get left in the dust by all the other realtors who were whizzing by me in terms of their presence on the internet and social media and their SEO rankings... which inevitably create leads, and business..

 

I started by working on my website... and within 6 months, was on the first page of Google... I worked diligently at it, attending classes to learn and quickly saw the results of my effforts... Once I got that established I started on Social Media.

 

Facebook seemed the likely candidate, as it was pretty popular back then and was one of only a few.... so I created a personal page... then learned that having a "Fan" page, or Business Page would also benefit me.  I didn't know a whole lot about Facebook, but not one to shy away from a challenge, I was not afraid to step out of my comfort zone, and I quickly learned my way around it, read articles, took classes, asked questions, and soon learned what I should be posting, and where on both pages.

 

I also learned that now since I have established both, it doesn't take much of my time.. perhaps 30 minutes a day to maintain my social media and websites...  I have learned how to automatically post on Twitter and other platforms simply by posting on Facebook, which saves me a lot of time.

 

I recently reached a milestone on my FB Fanpage, with more than 11,100 LIKES and my FB review reported a score of 91 which ranked me #1 in all of Canada in the real estate industry, beating out national brand Brokerages.  

  

I was also ranked #1 in Canada for PTAT (people talking about this) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and also #1 for Like Ranking..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It just proves that we can do anything we put our minds to... no matter what our age, because age is just a mindset.  When I started all this I was in  my 60's and next month I will be 72...."Bring About What We Think About"

 

Don't be afraid to step our of your comfort zone and take risks... if you don't.. you will never know what you can accomplish!

My website is approximately the same age as Google.  In September my URL and site will be 18.  I feel like it should be graduating and stop costing me money now. LOL.  

Of course unlike you I did NOT build or post or anything but pay BIG bucks for the initial site.  Now I do it myself and it certainly ranks better than it did years ago.

The others have all said it Gloria Valvasori but congrats on 'keeping on'.  We are never too old to learn new tricks.  I had a customer who was 98 and still doing emails, google searches, spread sheets etc.  Today, he's slowed down at 102.

Gloria Valvasori - I read your headline and thought how am I going to do everything and your approach, one at a time, and learn to do them well is a great plan!  Age is just a number it's your attitude and willingness to learn and work hard that makes the difference at any age!  Love that you are 72 years young!
