Social Media is Not a Waste of Time

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Realty Executive Midwest

When I hear people say that social media is a waste of time I just shake my head.  I'll explain to them why I use it and how I use it but it goes in one ear and out the next without stopping. Today the defense rests:

Can anyone recommend a really good, ambitious, enthusiastic and honest Real Estate agent in the neighborhood? I want to sell my house. Thanks!!

A few years back I created a Facebook Fan Page named " I Grew Up in Garfield Ridge".  The intent was merely to share stories with the people I grew up with about our old neighborhood.  I never solicit business on the page but my friends that are members of that page are also members of Joe Kenny's Real Estate Page and are the same people who referred me today.

I have created a social media system for my business and today I witnessessed the fruit of my work.  What a great way to start up 2014.  It's a good life!

Congrats - if you use it correctly and systematically, it will work! Many people think it's still about what you ate for lunch . . .
