As many of you have read and are experiencing. Social Media is a growing part of our industry. As I mentioned to Bryan Felder yesterday, it is a spoke in your marketing wheel and it definitely needs to be there but should not overwhelm you. Many people spend an inordinate amount of time with Social Media so you need to be cautioned on how much time and resources you are spending on this part of your business. You need to have exposure on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and post blogs at a minimum to get your real estate business to Web 2.0.
We are trying to keep you abreast of what to do in our efforts to keep you informed in this arena. Our wonderful Great Falls Office Coordinator, Kendall Bennett, is teaching Social Media classes on a monthly basis and is available to speak with you about what she has learned, what she is experiencing and what her thoughts are on this latest real estate tool. Here is a quiz she sent me yesterday – see how you do. http://www.realtor.org/RMOQuiz2.nsf/SocialNetworking?OpenForm.
Here is another article I came across that we need to pass to keep our business moving along in a positive direction. http://www.inman.com/news/2009/07/21/bill-would-extend-higher-loan-limits. Spread the word! Get it? Got it? Good!
Now, go sell something!
