Social networking is exciting on Active Rain because the community is vibrant with conversation, intimacy and networking. Many Active Rainers join Facebook and Twitter, end up conversing with the same Active Rainers, and wonder "how can I make Facebook relevant to my business development and community networking?".
Simply put, the key is to get your local community of friends and associates to join your networks. You want to get them on Twitter and Facebook but you don't have time to teach them how to use these social media tools to best effect (you may not know yourself ;)
We offer the solution. You may have heard about our ongoing series of Social Media Marketing Webinars previously from Jeff Dowler or Brad Andersohn. We're starting our sixth series next week, and we'll show you how to make the social media relevant and actionable for building your local network, and create a ubiquitous online presence (all without necessarily blogging, btw).
When you register for our Social Media Marketing course through Active Rain, we offer you the opportunity to invite as many of your friends and contacts as you want (locally or nationally) to attend our Social Media Marketing webinar for one month free (a $99 value).
Your contacts must be outside the real estate industry - local politicians, business leaders, small business owners, chambers of commerce members, former and prospective clients - anybody who can benefit from social media marketing for their local business. In four weekly sessions, we will demonstrate step-by-step how to use Twitter and Facebook, and show all of you how to build a massive community network together. This webinar, focused to small business owners, will be separate from the webinar you as a real estate professional will be attending.
We are limiting this opportunity to invite your friends free only to our first 50 registrants. We're offering the 3-month course for $49/month to Active Rain members (half price from $99) and you can attend any or all 12 sessions we offer per month (including the webinar for small business owners if you want) for one low tuition fee. We start next week:
Two time slots for Real Estate:
- Mondays from 10:30am to 11:30am PST, starting February 16, through May 16 - weekly
- Tuesdays from 9:00am to 10:00am PST, starting February 17, through May 17 - weekly
One time slot for Small Business
- Tuesdays from 8:00am to 9:00am PST, starting February 24, through May 24 - weekly (after the first free month, your friends can opt to continue the 3-month course at $49/month)
So check our testimonials, register today and get all your friends on board with you on the social media train! We will explain how your friends can register for their webinar (starting one week later) at our first sessions. Your friends will thank you for the opportunity; the gift of business education is far more valuable than a Starbucks coffee card.
UPDATE: Network Generation is the Next Lead Generation. I'm discussing how building your community social network will draw in your consumer traffic and leads.
