This is just a simple update post that will filter out to all my Wordpress Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, etc. In our first 2 months we have about 120 Real Estate Agents on board. The overwhelming consensus of Agents that we work with is that they feel like they can't keep up with the pace of the curriculum for Social media, so they are apologetic. No apologies needed, we just take care of their projects when they have time.
I have talked with multiple title companies and several are looking to take up licenses in the Boise Area, but we have stuff cooking in Tennessee, Georgia, Illinois, and California. Our Flagship client in Ohio is still going strong and is gaining real traction with larger listing agents who handle REO properties and short sales. I am excited for them, as they are at a tipping point in their growth where it turns from "does this thing work?" to "How do we keep up?"
I haven't forayed into lenders that much allowing my title companies the freedom to leverage refinance business by offering our program, but I have been asked many times and have taken multiple consulting projects from individual loan officers that want to understand social media and build out their infrastructure. I anticipate a targeted call-center campaign for loan officers that want to take it to the next level this summer.
So far, so good. It has been fun taking many of the existing social media tools and organizing them for client need in a strategic way. I look forward to making additional hires this summer as we are going to get hammered during the heavy sales season.
This is just an update since I haven't posted in a while. Good luck in all that you do!
