Lead gen ENVY due to Social Media

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Elite HRRA# 0225063945

 I really have envy when I scroll through social media ! 


Facebook- photos of all the happy client with keys/ Sold signs

Pinterest - Links to all kinds of homes and blogs

Instagram- Feeds dedicated to stunning home photography

Youtube - Great videos that keep your attention

Snapchat- Savvy videos from interesting agents seeking new clients


Whats a social girl to do ! 


To tell you the truth I have all these sites yet none of them are what I envisioned they would be. Its all kind of taken a life of its own. My personal life woven through them all. Clips of homes, my pets, my kids and sewing.


See I have figured out Im not a Trulia, Zillow, Boomtown, Tigerleads kinda marketing agent. I'm a social agent with passive marketing skills that allow me to be creative. I love when someone reaches out to me with confidence they want ME to help them. I love blending my LIFE with my Real Estate Practice. 

Real Estate is a EMOTIONAL / SOCIAL experience. I prefer to build the trust BEFORE we meet ! 


I still get anxious when I see agents posting all the ways they capture and lead gen. It makes me want to try it all but then I realize it will not work for me. I'm not a cold calling, door knocking kind of agent.

Alison, good for you that you know what you are and how you want to build your business. At the same time, we can all get ideas from others we can apply to our own business. That is why you read all those posts andlook at those sites, because you see something and you know in your heart I can do that and it might work for me, but all that other stuff they do, nah!
