I don't recall hearing of Main Street.  I might think being social with face-to-face interaction might be better than managing social media.  To each his/her own.  Good luck as you investigate further.

I haven't heard of Main Street Hub but, I do know and use GoDaddy's services. I would trust but, verify - dig a little deeper. 

Let us know what you find out, Lisa!

I certainly know GoDaddy and buy my domains from them, but have never heard of Main Street Hub. What do they actually do?

Haven't heard of Main Street Hub, but I get solicitations all the time from people who claim to be social media managers. I don't really need anyone managing my social media.

I have not; I would not.

This company seems to offer more than just SM, they offer CRM and manage online reviews etc. 

Perhaps a broker with a huge office and a lot of responsibility may find that a good solution, someone to keep an eye on everything for them.

My SM presence is mine and mine alone . . . and I enjoy it!

Plus, I doubt that anyone could duplicate 'my voice' and I've seen some try! [eyeroll, lolz]

ALSO, there are great people here in the Rain who know what they're doing and can either help directly with that or suggest someone awesome.

no, but there are many soliciting for new online business .....everyone can sell you leads.... 

you're best bet is to learn to make your own phone ring.... if you want buyers, they're found online more than offline.... 

sellers are found offline....print marketing for find listings.....

Hi Lisa, I am glad you asked the question. I was asking myself the same question. I use GoDaddy and like their products and customer service. Somebody from a social media management company, associated /owned  by GoDaddy, contacted me , too. I thought I would give it a thought, but I seem to like what Eva B. Liland Century 21 Doug Anderson is suggesting here.

I would say stay away, that is just another "branch" that Godaddy saw to suck people in to make more money. I just had a conversation with a fellow agent yesterday, what to post and he has made his account work for him. He makes funny, unrelated posts and posts his listings when he has one, making them public for everybody to see. Spends about an hour per week, doesn't cost him a dime. Last year, he closed 3 transactions from FB leads.

I do not have experience with Main Street Hub.

However, here are some experiences I do have.

Using AWS to host commerce sites DOES deliver advantage when others are searching on Amazon.

Using YouTube to host video gives advantage when others are searching on Google.

Getting in bed with Zdevil gives advantage when others search for real estate.

Where is the ADVANTAGE of using a Godaddy service for SM management? It should be clear Facebook has the deepest and most actionable data profile on Americans, but Godaddy may be cheaper?  

Let us know where you see the advantage?  Other than 'shiny things' I'm not seeing it.

I am in agreement with Michael Jacobs The majority of our clients listings and sales are coming from face to face, human to human.  Some of them are at 100% human...Imagine that vs facebook and other outlets...and they are all thriving...A

Neer heard of them, but my belief is that one needs to do their own because when you don't and people ask you about something you posted you aren't aware and you have to respond to comments.  I think people with managing companies are missing the social part of social media.

Lisa, Candice has you covered.  Looks like MainStreet is jumping on the re bandwagon to offer an all-in-one hub.  Please think thru if a company invested in their profits, not yours, is right to control your marketing voice?

Lisa Ammons ... Pretty obvious no one is helping you with any experience with Main Street Hub... how much, what different segments can you order off the menu? If you try them out, let us know from someone who used their service the good, bad and the ugly. Good luck!
