Does Social Media Scare You?

The best real estate marketers think of social online like they do social offline!

Social media provides a way to further connect with your local clients and groups and boost your real estate marketing efforts.

Social can build trust, and spread your marketing through friends of friends.

But first let me tell you about my client Mary.

She is 62 years old.

She was a very successful realtor 10 years ago but had to take some time off due to health challenges.

Thankfully she is on the mend and is looking to ramp up her real estate business once again.

Times have changed in 10 years and the real estate marketing game is quite different than it was.

She was terrified.

Mary knows she needs to be online social like she is offline social but has no idea where to start, what is effective or how to do it with little time or resources.

She’s not a tech wizard, she didn’t have a tone of connections on LinkedIn or even have a website.

I am happy to say she reached out to me and I have given her the tools and tips to begin making new customer connections. Here are 4 ways that we got her on the path to success.

The 4 Simple Steps To Connecting With Potential Clients

  • Send a personalized message to a prospect
  • Once connected follow up and provide value. This can be done through articles, posts and information that they will find valuable and make their lives easier when it comes to the home search process. Don’t be "salesy" … just provide value and aim to help them.
  • Bring the conversation offline. Sounds a little odd but this is where you’ll convert the relationship to a sale. P.S You’ll need to ask for the sale of course.
  • Ask for the referral.  Putting these on your website, your LinkedIn profile and any other marketing provides proof to new customers what an amazing job your doing to solve their housing needs.
