Many of us have heard about social networking, but are not really sure what it is, what it means or how it works. It is more important than ever to start social networking. Social networking/marketing will be the Internet rave for 2009, especially for real estate agents and brokers.
Even our new president elect, Barak Oboma, has jumped on the band wagon with social networking. Although he may have someone else maintain his social networking online for him, he has seen the grand opportunity social networking has to offer. Many times you will find it time consuming to social network on a regular basis, and you need to network often, so hiring someone like a Virtual Assistant can really help build your social network while you take care of your business.
What is social networking you ask? Social networking is a group of individuals linked to specific groups of people. You can think of it as a neighborhood subdivision sitting in the middle of a small community.

There are literally millions of people going online daily to develop friendships and/or business relationships.
Search engine placement is still an important part of your online presence. Social networking helps to expand your online presence and gives people the opportunity to see you and your business without really looking. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of social networking websites available on the Internet to cater to each individual person's different hobbies, wants and needs.
So, the question now is, are you social networking?
