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:
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!
