I'm kind of surprised how many agent friends of mine express their political beliefs on Face book, Twitter and other social media.
I choose not to.
There is nothing wrong with letting the world know how you feel about the candidates, but I have made the decision to keep my views private and out of my business life. Am I wrong?
I must admit my decision is business driven. I don't want my private political views to influence how a prospective client sees me. After all few will ask about your political views because they are looking for input. Most who ask are looking for a verification of their own views or they will try to explain why you are wrong about what you think. In a business setting I just don't see the point in going there.
Only a sliver of the population has not made up their mind about who they are going to vote for and the few that are still trying to decide most likely will not be asking me for advice.
So what do you think? Is it a good business strategy for brokers and agents to telegraph their political leanings on social media or not?
