I need new business cards

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Live Love Homes-Keller Williams, Charlotte, NC Ballantyne Area

It is kind of ironic that my friends at 210 Consulting are doing a contest with the prize of Free Business Cards. I have been playing around with making a new business card for almost 2 weeks now. I sent a copy of what I wanted to use to my best buddy David Patterson told me that I needed to go back to the drawing board and make sure it had my picture somewhere on it. I now have the card 90% complete so free cards would be fabulous.

Ok, so now onto what I am actually supposed to be blogging about. Do I love or hate social media? Um well lets see, I LOVE social media. I guess you could call me a junkie. The term "Crackberry" does describe me because my phone makes it very easy for me to be on top of the social media in my life. If you want to keep in touch with me on Social Media, here is some of my information:

 Twitter   Facebook   Linked'in   MySpace   Facebook Fanpage   Facebook Fanpage 2  and a couple others! 

Do I use all of these social media sites? Indirectly I do but I don't log on per se very often to several of them. I have found that social media can be very advantageous to my life and business for many reasons. One is contact with the brightest and best in the Real Estate industry. The agents I am connected with on social media are some of the most tech savvy in the country. I learn from them and hopefully I contribute a little something to them. The more that you are willing to learn in this industry, the better not only for yourself but ultimately for my clients.

I have made real and lasting friendships through social media and rekindled friendships with people that I had not seen since high school. Here is a pictures of my real estate friends in Virginia Beach that I met in real life just this past month. (pic by Naoma Doriguzzi) I have sent and received referrals from agents, friends and even mere acquaintances since they know that I'm in real estate in the Charlotte, NC areaSocial Media Lunch Bunch Charlotte real estate

So in a nut shell these are just some of the reasons that I participate in social media. If I did not have a smart phone then it would be much more difficult and take a lot more time to be engaged, but with my blackberry I can very quickly keep up with and be a part of many people's lives that I normally would not have time to do.

Here is the link to the contest that I was talking about. Do I deserve the free business cards? I think so.   http://210consulting.com/business-card-contest/

Social media is playing an increasing role in business although Twitter still has a ways to go in my view. Do you deserve free cards, why not! I vote yes!

 Lisa, it is nice that you keep in touch with your friends. If the free cards help your business then go for it.

Thanks John- I have received a couple referrals from twitter so far as well. It is all about engagement though.

Song- keeping up and engaging is what it is all about for me.
