The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) hosted a free event fro members called, Successful Branding by Combining Social Media & Traditional Marketing by a top producing agent in Manhattan and a social media marketing guru known for his niche with working with real estate brokers.
Somewhere along the presentation, he throws up this slide which says, "Who is the top luxury real estate broker in Manhattan?" Long pause, as the audience contemplates this obvious answer; of course, the top producer who is the co-host of this seminar. After all, everything is about her. I was guilty of this answer in my own mind.
Lo and behold, the next slide comes up and it was MY WEBSITE! I almost fell off my chair! The social media marketing director then proceeds to tell everyone in the room the value of Google Places where my website was placing on Google's first page amongst only companies and no individuals.
It was such a wonderful surprise that I couldn't help but beam with pride from all my hard work.
Ironically enough, I had posted a blog on Active Rain about a social media, digital strategy & SEO tips webinar, that I was hired to speak on for by a PR firm that is just geared towards real estate professionals. I got some good resistance which was great. But to have my website featured just sealed that nail in the coffin for me as far as my skill at being able to share this wealth of knowledge.
