Social Networking For Real Estate

  1. 1. Tina Merritt www.wolkia.com
  2. 2. A social network is any site or application that allows users to provide and direct the content through sharing, collaboration and interaction.
  3. 3.  Social networking is for kids  Social networking is a fad that will go away  Social networking exposes you to people who want to stalk and harass you  Social networking is a waste of time
  4. 4.  Think of it as an online cocktail party or networking event  Gives you the opportunity to engage with the community in a “non-salesy” manner  Allows you to connect with everyone you went to high school, college, past-life and let them know you are in real estate
  5. 5.  Social networking is about PEOPLE and RELATIONSHIPS  Social networking uses technology to connect PEOPLE through their shared interests  Real estate is and always will be a RELATIONSHIP business
  6. 6.  Be honest  Be genuine  Be yourself  Be passionate
  7. 7.  The key to success here is simple. If you want social networking to work for you, keep it fun, keep it real and stop selling.  It's not like TV where you've got 30 seconds to slam them with whatever product or idea you may have.  Your internet presence is not a brochure either.  An active profile is something much greater and potentially more powerful. It's a living testimonial that places you as a professional in a social context.
  8. 8.  Facebook  Myspace  Linkedin  Activerain  Twitter  Flickr  Youtube  Brightkite  And many, many more
  9. 9.  The Internet = the Unselfish Sharing of Information  SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Means Nothing Unless you have YEO (You Engaging Others)  Must be Consistent  Must not be Self-Promoting (it's about quot;wequot; not quot;mequot;)  The power is in the numbers
  10. 10.  Think of social networking as leaving breadcrumbs all over the internet.  Be careful what you say because it will NEVER go away.  Professional vs. personal social networking.  The more network profiles you have, the more Google juice you may receive.
  11. 11.  276% Growth in 35-54 Year old users  194% Growth 55+ Year old users  101% Growth 25-34 Year old users  66.3% of users are over 21
  12. 12. •Add a link (such as to a blog post, interesting RE article) •Add a photo (an area park, community event, etc.) •Add a video (community event, neighborhood tour)
  13. 13.  Create a Fan page and invite your sphere and former clients  Gives you a list of everyone’s birthday  Watch the lives of your sphere and engage without interrupting them  Offers a window into the “real” you  Promote yourself exponentially to the “friends” of all of your “friends”  Best of all….you can do it in your pj’s
  14. 14.  Micro-blogging (140 characters or less)
  15. 15.  Think of Twitter as a constant cocktail party that you can observe and decide whether or not to jump in and engage in the party.  Twitter is best used with the apps available such as: Tweetdeck, Twitpic, Tweetlater, etc.  Companies are realizing the incredible benefits of Twitter….
  16. 16. I Twittered that I was about to board a flight to Orlando out of Richmond…… The airport told me they appreciate my business! Think next time I fly, I will look at flying out of RIC again? Absolutely!
  17. 17.  Linkedin is more of a BUSINESS network than a SOCIAL network.  Linkedin Groups  Linkedin is for Person A connecting Person B to Person C  Participate in discussions
  18. 18.  A social networking site for agent to agent and agent to consumer networking  Internal blogging (for members-only) and outside-blogging (for consumers)  Great place to get started in blogging and fantastic Google juice
  19. 19. Social networking through photos…………
  20. 20.  Create your own Youtube channel  Upload videos of your listings, neighborhood tours, community events, video blogs  Invite your friends and sphere to “friend” your channel
  21. 21.  Schedule time for internet marketing/social networking just as you would for any other appointment.  Minimal to no cost. The biggest cost is your time. Going mobile with it is essential.  Social networking requires maintenance. If you don’t check your email but a few times/week….this is not for you.
  22. 22. RE Bar Camp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.
