Listening to Social Media Webinar

Real Estate Agent with Remax House of Real Estate

I've been playing on facebook, twitter, Activerain, and Linked In for about a year.

I really have little clue about what the impact of all this.

I'm generally open and honest ... sharing what's happening in my life.

I haven't really tried to find buyers or sellers using Social Media ... I basically have just opened accounts and shared what I'm upto.

I enjoy connecting with old friends ... and learning what they are upto.

I can contribute a couple of deals this year to Social Media.

Currently I'm listening to a webinar by Ross Hair.

I continue to be underwhelmed by the opportunities of Social Media.

I'll continue to keep informed on Social Media ... and while I don't need to be a leader in this ... I don't want to be left behind.

Byron I've overwhelmed by the social media craze too.  I've got twitter, facebook, linkedin, you name it I've got.  I'm just now getting a clue on how to use it better.  Good luck!

Thanks Bryon...I'm with you as far as using all the social media to communicate with the world. But I have not received any business from it yet either. I do believe it will come though...hopefully sooner rather than later.

After listening to this webinar I considered paying the $500 fee to join the 6 training sessions.

However ... after a nights sleep ... I think I'll just continue prodding along ... updating my "STATUSES" whenever I think of it ... or have time ... or think that someone might care that:

-I'm hanging the Christmas lights;

-Sharing recent local MLS data.

-At my childrens music recital.

-A great new listing


My Social Marketing Media Strategy:

1. Add friends when I have time ... or feel like it.

2. Don't try to sell or build REAL relationships on Social networks.

3. Build my close relationships outside of the social networks.

Bryon, I've just started a push on the social media and I'm still figuring out what each is for and how best to use them in work and life.  I'm doing my 2010 business planning this week.  Your post reminded me to put in goals for social media marketing time.  Thanks.

I'm not a big fan of twitter but I have had some business from Facebook Marketplace and of course, here at AR I get my name out there in the local media.   I don't believe it will all arrive overnight but that we're ahead of those who do nothing at all.  Continued success!
