Social Media Enhancements – Quick Blogging Tips
Social Media Enhancements

Here are some easy guidelines to make blogging a more beneficial and easy process for your business.

Provided by Susan, the Social Media guru, on my design team.

Blog 101 Tips

  • Keep it short, sweet, and relevant.
  • Know your niche.  If you market is luxury…then a blog about 1st time home purchasing is not for your audience.
  • Your audience is homeowner, renters, relocation peeps….not other realtors
  • The blog is ‘your voice’ for your brand
  • Invite people that you work with to post a blog (Lenders, Appraisers, Landscape, etc.)
  • Add a great photo to your blog, something that will catch your eye when it shows up in the FB homepage feed.
  • If you attend a ‘fun’ professional even, share pictures and a short recap of the evening, then email that out to the event planner.

Please feel free to email, tweet, FB me questions.  I balance my life between design, wife/mom, and yoga teacher, I will get back with you!

Unique Ways to Reach Out to Your Clients
Technology Tidbits from Michael Tritthart Facebook Business PageHere are a couple of items that are outside the norm but can be just as effective in communicating with your clients

S2H.com – A great item to share with your database, offer it as a closing gift or even use for yourself.  This takes the pedometer to the next level and appeals to one of our basic reactions in life…We like to win free stuff.  The more you use your S2H.com device, the more you are rewarded.  Go check it out, you will like it!

HandFont.com – When you decide to reach out to your database to let them know about S2H.com use HandFont.  Submit a sample of your handwriting to this site and they will create a font that you can load to your machine.  You can then “write” a letter to your clients.  Give your marketing pieces that personal touch!

Social Media Enhancements – Quick Facebook Tips

Here are some easy guidelines to make Facebook a more personal experience for your business.

  • Not EVERY post has to be a Selling moment…REALLY!Share something FUN about what you do/did
  •  Post crazy Realtor Pictures…tons on the web, and they are funny!  From crazy messy kitchens to BIZARRE bathrooms.  They will get responses and everyone know someone who has sold a house like that!
  • Grand Openings…if something is opening in your community, ANNOUNCE it!
  • Community announcements.  Have your finger on the pulse of the community by promoting neighborhood events, festivals etc.
  • Honor Roll in the paper….FB Congrats to those families.
  • Listed and Sold a home quickly…100% share that news
  • At the closing table, do a quick video testimonial or picture of your happy clients and tag them in the photo with a nice description.  Great way to their friends and them to discuss how great it was working with you.
  • IMPORTANT….if someone comments on your post, please respond back!  FB is about SOCIAL INTERACTION!
  • If someone COMPLAINS on your wall, don’t panic!  If it is grossly personal, then delete it.  If it is simply a ‘you didn’t _______’ comment, then respond and let them know you sent them a direct email.
  • Spend 10 minutes on your FB & Twitter in the morning and then another 10 minutes in the afternoon.
