Social media has been the driving force of many businesses, employment, and succession of personal branding. But where else has social media really made a dent? Real estate is one of the least successful industries right now. Many agencies are treading deep water to keep from losing business. Real estate is based on the economic market and the demand for home owners. With everyone struggling to pay rent, who wants to pay a mortgage? But for those agencies that haven’t started using social media, here are a few reasons why it may be the next big thing for you.
Real estate is evolving, and professionals around the country are doing their part to enter the social scene to connect with clients on a whole new level. The networking aspect also helps professionals connect with new demographics in an effort to make profit in this recession. Most agencies strive to strike up a conversation and engage their community. Social media gives agents access to pertinent information that can help agents reach out to new clients.
Social media is a new medium for real estate agents to advertise, market, and lead generate. Social media has created a fundamental shift in the way we communicate, educate, shop, and nurture relationships with past, present, and future clients. But just creating an account won’t give you the best exposure, you have to create good content that will provoke conversation, conflict, and spread effectively. It is crucial to be consistent and create informative content. All forms of multimedia should be shared across Facebook and other social media platforms in an attempt to appeal to a variety of audiences.
