Not all our Facebook and Twitter contacts care what we are promoting. And I would personally be turned off getting pounded with every property and agent is trying to promote to me as a consumer. Target communications I am in favor of or Linkedin as this is a professional social media site in my opinion.
Like Scott said TMI agents.
Good Morning to you,
Rob Hughes: Long & Foster Real Estate Inc.
Social media is a wonderful tool for advertising as it has the potential to reach a vast number of consumers. Not only is it a great avenue to communicate with those individuals that you know but also extends out to those they know and so on.
Over 90% of home buyers begin their search on the internet so it's a must for any real estate agent to have a presence there. Videos of homes (YouTube) are gaining more of a presence which gives the listing more exposure for the seller.
In my opinion, the downside to social media is that you will encounter more individuals who will attempt to scam you and be deceiving. Caution is always necessary when dealing with an unknown individual.
