~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

I was impressed earlier this week by an ActiveRain article by Pamela Cendejas that encouraged those using social media to engage with their followers. It is incredibly important if you want to grow your followership! Pamela also provides solid advice on ways to stay top-of-mind, regardless of platform you are using. If you have not yet seen her featured article, you can find it here. Stop by and learn how to increase your SM success.

I have seen a lot of social media advice (some of it counter-productive) freely given around the Web lately. Much of it has been centered around Facebook. While it is great to ask questions when we do not understand something or want more clarity on a topic, we need to do our due diligence and research all advice given before we implement anything. Always "trust but verify" information you receive, regardless of the source or their online reputation. It is easy to accidently get led astray and cause yourself more problems.

As always, there are 5 top notch Rainers for you to go visit on FB this week. Do not be shy...they will appreciate your visit!

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please return the favor.

As always, enjoy Rainers!

Thanks Anita Clark ! Good Friday habit and you are leading the Zumba class, pushing the troops to get out there and rub shoulders with others in the real estate trenches. There is strength in numbers.

Good list, Anita Clark and I will try to check out this unfortunate souls later in the day! I will say that FB is increasingly becoming a site saturated with ficticious 'people' who do not even exist which means they are scammers! People beware!!

A strong SM presence should be on our list, Andy.

Yuliya: You are quite welcome. I hope plenty of Rainers visit your page.

Sandy/Norm: All the more reason to pre-screen before accepting new friends.

Having fun keeps the interest up. Thanks Anna.

Excellent advice Anita. I enjoyed Pam's post and wrote a couple pointers down. You're right, there's a lot of information out there that just isn't correct so we really have to be careful and consider the source. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

"Always "trust but verify" information you receive" is what we do as Realtors, why do we suddenly forget this online?
