and meet in groups and socialize.
**SOCIAL MEDIA **
The really great aspect of this on-line phenomenon
is that you can Opt in and Opt out as you please.
You can “lurk” or “engage” at any time.
8. Use Social Networking the right way
You should understand that it is a
process of connecting, then
communicating and finally building a
relationship and community. You need
to connect with other people so you
can tell your story. You need to listen to
their story also. Just like "real life", it is
not a one way street.
Listen, Respect and Respond.

11. Choose your Social Media Networks
It is actually easier than you might
think. You only need to pick 1 or 2 to
begin, otherwise you will get frustrated
and quit. Pick the sites that you feel will
have the most activity and allow you to
target consumers in your market.
Most people begin with Facebook,
LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.

23. What do I put on my profile?
Suggestions: If you meet someone in the "real life/ not
online", you might say to that person "Tell me about yourself
(or what kind of work do you do?") using Social Networks you
will accomplish this with a cleverly crafted biography. You will
tell everyone about yourself and your real estate business
through this bio. This helps start the "conversation" and get
the momentum going in the right direction. So they know
WHO you are, WHAT you do, HOW you do it, WHERE you do
•Think of these online conversations or postings as an online
based "water cooler"
•It is just another, VERY EFFECTIVE, way to get your message
out in postings, words, images, video and more ..
24. •The social media platforms do not
replace those things that are working
for you now, but it certainly
compliments and enhances it.
•Online conversations allow you to
connect with more people, more
often, and more quickly. The power of
the internet is AMAZING!
25. Your story.
Everyone has a story to tell, so tell it
and make it interesting, put a twist on
it, be funny, get excited, ask the
opinions of others, tell others about
new or something a "target group"
might find interesting. It is okay to
"lighten up" - Show who you really
are, your authentic self.
26. If you are not part of this
Social Media world, take
action as soon as you get
Make sure you set up your
profile on Facebook.
27. So now you are on Facebook - Now

Pompton Plains" – (post a photo too)
