Now, back to business. I've noticed that having profiles on various networking sites is becoming more and more popular. I, for one, have profiles on FaceBook, LinkedIn, ActiveRain (of course) and a few others. These are the questions I have for everyone regarding these sites:
- Do you have profiles on multiple sites? If so, which ones?
- Do you actually get business, probably in the form of referrals, from these sites/ your profile? If so, what percentage of your business does it make up?
- Which one is your favorite?
- Do you mix your personal profiles (MySpace, for instance) with your professional profiles? Do you use one profile for both purposes?
As we all know, our business is all about networking and the connections you have. Plus, businesses are also moving to being more and more Internet based. I think this is just one more reason we all must embrace Technology.
This may sound silly, but I think it's important to know if these sites are legitimate lead generation tools. Also, this poses a great question for all agents, Do You Know Your Numbers??? As an agent, you should. And if you don't, your assistant better!
