End of Summer going into FALL Market ME! CONTEST

We are at the end of Summer soon and we have a CONTEST for you!  Lauren Selinsky Realtor in Oramge County CAAre you getting ready for hibernation come Fall /Winter? Well, get to work now before hibernation sets in. 

This CONTEST should get you rebooted! If not, it will push you into the SOCIAL MEDIA momentum you have have been waiting for. Also, reminding you that you should also work your farm area or the trac you JUST got a listing in.
So, here are the rules and guidelines to EARN 1500 POINTS. You heard right! 1500 POINTS and the ONE RAINER that has the best BLOG with creativity, including and following rules will EARN another 1500 POINTS. Please make sure your blog consists of 250 words MINIMUM.
HERE WE GO:
#1
Set up a Twitter Acct and Instagram account if YOU don't have one & post a quick house photo FOR SALE pic and creat one sentence. It could also be an Open House or a LISTING pic if you already have a listing.
Instagram: Laguna Beach home in a beautiful cu-de-sac with 40k in upgrades. Must See (then add hashtags and share to twitter)  #lagunahome #oclauren #buylaguna
#24encinitas (include a hashtag and words such as your city, address, your name or Instagram name, your state and realtor NO SPACES)
Note: New to Instagram?  Once you create in Instagram, click SHARE to Twitter and POST. No new creation needed, posts same to your Twitter account when you click on SHARE.
 
 
#2 Newsletter or marketing piece I am going to give you an option only because  maybe you don't have the funds to buy an item, but it is more affordable then you think. If, you are ordering flyers, color printing, you are spending the same, if not more.
A) Order a marketing material to distribute to farm area and local areas (pens, recycle bags, Tshirts, my new one is a USB) Take a pic and include in your blog
B) Create a Newsletter to send to your current list of prospects or neighborhood businesses or another farming area.
NEWSLETTERS CAN BE CREATED FREE OF CHARGE WITHBYOURBOLD REUBKIC HOME WARRANTY ACCOUNT. It's my favorite! Insert logo, pic and voila ready for PRINT! 
 
#3 Name your farming area
A flyer. Create. Go farm!  Where do you farm? Tell us the name of your farming area, perhaps how many homes in the trac, model names, whatever you think you could help yourself get NEW buyers and sellers in your trac. OWN that trac! Take over! and post pic of trac and create a flyer for your Trac THAT YOU COULD GO FARM. Save your flyer as a .jpg (pic) and include in your blog. We want to see the name of your trac you farm. If a trac is too large, then focus on a street or two. (No excuses!)
Photo example to include in your marketing material below:

Let me post it here as well.

Is it possible to invoke Instagram to post our blogs from Active Rain social media blogs? 

 


Dear Sam Shueh

Not possible. Instagram is only images. It won't take in a URL like Facebook and Twitter will.

Since the content you create in a blog post is more than just an image, it doesn't work. Sorry!

Great to hear Anna Banana Kruchten 

 

Left you the following message Sam Shueh 

Keep in mind although just about every social media or blogging doesn't go from their platform to an Instagram posting you must know the following:

Do I have enough time to manage another social network? Is it even worth joining Instagram if my business / products / services aren't visually friendly? Do I have the right resources to create quality photos and videos? If you’re questioning whether or not Instagram has a place in your social media marketing strategy, you’re not alone.

According to Rival IQ’s 2015 Social Media Trends research, 38% of marketers stated that Instagram was unimportant, with another 20% stating it was only somewhat important. As the fastest growing major social network with one of the most engaged audiences, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to overlook Instagram's value. 

In less than five years, the network has grown to a whopping 300 million users who in one day share an average of 70 million photos while liking 2.5 billion.

Instagram is worth the investment.

Fall Market Contest

Thanks for hosting the contest. You forced me to start on the path of Twitter and Instagram.

Please accept late post. I was going to do but ActiveRain was not working. Today was the only time I had time to concentrate and do it. Thanks

Everyone did such a great job Debbie Reynolds 

I think we should do a contest to push Video blogs. They are the wave right now.
