facebook marketing: A 3 Step Real Estate Farming Strategy For Success in 2019 - 12/29/18 05:28 PM
Everyone has heard of real estate farming, but few agents are consistent in their approach. Unfortunately, a scattershot approach that’s done occasionally (or “when you have time”) is not going to be successful.

Here’s a real estate farming strategy to implement in 2019. If you stay consistent with it, by this time next year your target neighborhood will know your name and be starting to know, like, and trust you!

There are so many options for using social media to promote real estate that it’s dizzying. I should say up front that I’m not saying you have to do it all.
I always suggest that Realtors® combine their print marketing with social media in ways that make sense:
Where does your target demographic spend the most time? How much time and money do you have for the social media part of your marketing? Why Facebook?Facebook can be a good choice for Realtors® for several reasons:
There is a wide range of ages and a good mix of gender. The largest age demographic, ages 25 … (4 comments)

That’s very unfortunate, because the leads you get from Facebook can be some of the best leads you get anywhere. They are highly targeted and, when done well, ready to buy.

facebook marketing: Posting Your Listings On FaceBook...Updated - 06/18/10 12:03 PM
I have learned more about the Facebook Marketplace and wanted to share in the event you weren't able to find it in your FaceBook. One of my clients couldn't find the link, so I really had to hunt to find it for him myself. Here is where you will find it: Log in to your facebook. Down the left side column you will see a list of applications that may or may not include the Facebook Marketplace (icon is to the left). If you don't see it there, click on the little icon that says "applications" and it will bring you … (2 comments)

facebook marketing: Are you posting your listings on Facebook? In the Facebook Marketplace??? - 06/10/10 07:55 AM
If you are one of the agents who has one of the 51,000 listings posted on Facebook, then this post will seem obvious and redundant to you.  If not, you should definitely read on....
Facebook has "The Marketplace" where many real estate agents post their listings.  The wonderful part about the way Facebook works is that those listings show up to "your social circle" anytime someone in your circle enters The Marketplace.  Right at the top of the page in my experience.
If you are not using Facebook as a means to attract prospective buyers and to market to your sphere … (5 comments)
