Three Things You’ll Learn:

If we don’t adopt social media we risk losing market share 

Real estate is a profession with the oldest group of practitioners, and many of them struggle to embrace technology and social media. The problem is, even with the most real estate knowledge, we can get surpassed by an agent with a stronger social media presence. 

A successful social media strategy starts with target clients 

Most people don’t have a business plan, therefore they don’t know who their clients are and then they don’t know how to find where those people are hanging out online.

Create content that connects with people 

Only a small fraction of the world’s population makes over $100k a year. When we talk about money, the majority of the human race doesn’t connect with it.

Social media is a key part of running successful real estate and mortgage businesses, and if we commit to being lifelong learners of technology, it will become a lot less intimidating. If we want to do business with people, we have to connect with them on the platforms they spend time on. If we craft relevant content that resonates with them, they will get to know, like and trust us and doing transactions from there becomes a lot easier.
