According to SocialMediaWeek.org, 74% of people trust social networks to guide their purchasing decisions. When you think about it — that’s huge! Three quarters of us are buying things based on what we see other people use, buy or review.
This presents a real opportunity for real estate professionals. Building a strong online presence and positioning yourself as an expert influencer (micro or macro) offers a great way to grow your business and increase leads.
1. Develop a plan and stick with it.
Be consistent. When people see you posting quality content on a consistent basis, they’re more likely to follow you.
2. Be open to trying new things.
To stay relevant, you must remain open to trying the latest social media platforms and trends.
3. Be active
Engage with your followers — ask them questions and when they answer, make sure to respond!
4. Be authentic
Be conversational, be honest and, most of all, be yourself.
5. Build it over time
Becoming a social media influencer takes time and dedication, but the impact for your real estate brokerage can be huge.
