I friend. I tweet. I'm linked. I blog - both in the Rain and abroad. Google likes me!! I text and I'm totally lost without my bluetooth. I can't drive without talking on the phone to someone! Oh - I also forum: three local and one on my pets. And in my spare time, I try to sell houses!
And to sell houses, listings are on the MLS, a company website, zillow, trulia, craigslist and a host of hundreds of other sites. Yes, the website syndicates but still - there is some maintenance just to verify it's all correct.
To keep everything simplified and orchestrated, there is Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Seesmic and I'm sure others I haven't yet found. Which do you like for real estate applications and why?
I sold advertising for 16 years before becoming a REALTOR - I know the strengths and weaknesses of traditional advertising media. But I've never marketed myself on the Internet. I don't mind paying money but I do expect a return! I totally get that most buyers and sellers are internet savvy and I need my name to be the one they find in my area. I'm looking for feedback from those of you who have walked the path before me on your successes and failures. What do you find works and why/why not?
And the final question du jour... how do you add the icon links for the various SM sites to your signature on sites like this and in your emails?
TIA for your patience with me asking soooo many questions in one post!!
