Title Insurance with Resource Real Estate Services, LLC

How is everyone doing?! Is this site worth setting up on for networking? I have been working for my title company for over seven years and I am always looking for new ways to meet new people in the industry! Trade shows are a bust lately, so I am trying some networking sites in hopes of making new contacts and meeting some new interesting people.

 

I hope you are all having a great day!!!!

Hi - welcome to the site. I recommend that you read, read, read and then comment, comment, comment. There are so many different blogs to read. There are tons of topics out there from real estate, marketing, technology, seo, staging, mortgage, etc. It goes on and on. Find topics you like (in the groups) follow those for a little while, start to find certain writers you like. Comment on their posts. You'll start to get to know people and before you know it... you'll have figured out the benefits of the site. Also reciprocate your comments. Consider posting some blogs with content for consumers. Those are included on localism.com. So you could write about your area or about things you know in real estate or related etc. Good luck

Sherry,  This is  a great site to meet people.  The one thing I have learned is you get out of it what you put into. If you just keep doing posts you most likely won't get much out of it.  However, if you comment on other posts and interact with other members you should get  a lot out of it.

Welcome to the network! Utilize this site to not only network with the many professionals here but also to connect directly with the consumer via your blog. If you do that right, I'm sure you'll find this site worth while.

Visit some other member profiles and see how others are marketing themselves.
