Social media is one of the most powerful tools you can utilize to market your business. In fact, with 90% of home searches beginning online I’d say having an online presence is absolutely essential if you want to grow your business.
However for some realtors social media marketing can be a daunting task. In this challenge we’re asking you to tell us your biggest social media success story! And in doing so provide some great tips to other ActiveRain members.
Have you posted your listings on social media? Generated leads through your network? Posted real estate related content? Increased your network or likes, shares and comments? Maybe even used promoted posts or some other form of advertising on social media with tremendous success!
Tell us what you’ve found to be successful!
A notable social media success story is that of CityBlast co-founder Shaun Nilsson. He secure 24 deals in his first year as a Realtor using social media. Specifically Shaun used inbound marketing strategies, regularly posting value-added content and listings to his Facebook page to attract potential buyers. Using inbound strategies avoids the pitfalls of push marketing, which tends to only annoy friends and followers. Instead, posting value-added content encouraged Shaun’s friends and followers to like, share and comment on his posts, and in doing so they marketed his brand to their friends and followers. The cumulative power of his entire social network and that of his friends and followers, allowed him to reach a greater audience of potential buyers.
Have you implemented any inbound marketing strategies or perhaps used other techniques to successfully market your business on social media? If you have a social media success story you want to share with other members, we hope you'd be willing to share.
