One of the number one suggestions Realtors get from business professionals and other Realtors is to “get out there”. Visibility of your brand and the services you provide is true for not only Realtors but any business. Being in the public eye through community events, advertisments, trade shows, networking events etc. is important. The more you can do and the more people you can engage the better.
Now, as we all already know, there are a ton of people on the internet. So, if your goal is to “get out there” and have your brand seen by as many people as possible, it would make perfect sense to “get out there” on the web! There are so many ways to meet and engage people on the internet and it goes way beyond and old and boring static webpage. If you haven’t already started to use social websites and tools like LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and perhaps most important a blog, now is the time!
What we suggest…
Don’t hestiate to give it all a try. Twitter and Facebook are quite possibly some of the easiest tools to use to promote yourself and ultimately your brand. Most importantly, they are free to start using! You need to find what works for you and what you are going to be commited to using. The best thing to do is start! Learn how to use these tools by simply using them. Learn from your mistakes as you begin and soon you will be a social media/marketing pro!
Don’t continue to hope people are seeing your static website. Engage your current and future customers not only where they are in town but also where they are on the web. The relationships you build on the internet are just as powerful as those you build in-person.
Get out there today, on the web!
