SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING: Waste of Time?

By
Mortgage and Lending with San Diego VA Home Loans/858-777-9751

 

If you’re reading REALTOR magazine, you’re hearing about how to find business blogging, or using Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. 

 

Does this stuff work or is it all a hoax?

 

The answer is yes; social media marketing works and…

YES, it is incredibly over-hyped. 

 

What started as a Web 2.0 revolution, some 5-7 years ago has morphed into a full-blown industry in itself…complete with “experts” charging you for a webinar about how to use these media.  The sad fact is that you might go broke if you relied only on social media to market your real estate agency practice.

Hi Brain, I want to know all about this but I will be in Yosemite on the 11th so I hope some one will be recording it. Many thanks for all you contribute to all of us.

Brian, Social Media is an awesome way to supplement our businesses. It also has the upside of being fun. It makes me feel like I'm a creative genius!!!

The best part about it for me is all the other business opportunities it has given me. Social Media has expanded my mind.

Social media is only one component of a successful marketing plan. Very, very few agents have success with a pure online presence, but the successful integration of online and offline approaches can lead to significant results.

Hi Brian, glad to see you are going to be in town...

15 seats available? Reminds me of a quote from Jaws... "You're gonna need a bigger boat!" :-)

It's one of those tools I use anyways to play with my sisters.  Might as well integrate a little biz with it.  Works for me but only because I work when I am playing :)
