Social Media doesn't have me in a holding pattern, but a learning pattern. I'm 'getting the picture' but it's taking time because when I just get a chance to look into the practice and process, my real estate business begins to take over my life.
I wonder if the two are connected! I've learned that I can share a great deal with readers and establish a leadership role in the industry as well as with my network of clients/customers and prospects. Additional value lies in the communication with other real estate professionals.
That thought about leadership may seem arrogant, but I believe that real estate professioanls should be taking leadership in the industry and not just be fluttering from place to place wringing our hands and working without information. Information and leadership will stand us in good stead for representing our clients when they are moving toward the next step in their property ownership experience.
I know JudyAnn Lorenz, who works with social media every day (and in her sleep). I'm 'thinking' about what the possibilities are for me with both leads and relationships as she wrote in her recent post Social Media| Leads or Relationships.
