7 Ways to Use Social Media Like a Pro
Turn Facebook, blogging and your website into lead-driving machines

Andrew Neal is a fan of social media. Like most college students in the early 2000s, he adopted Facebook early on. But his use of the site – and other social media –exploded after he began selling real estate in 2005. As a result, his business took off, too.

Neal, Team Leader of the Andrew Neal Group with RE/MAX Ability Plus in Carmel, Ind., says he relies on a mix of social media marketing and more traditional avenues, such as networking, direct mail and brochures, to gain new buyer and seller leads. It’s a winning combination that has helped him gain more closings and build lasting relationships.

Here are Neal’s top tips for optimizing social media for business:
1. Build a solid sphere of online contacts.
2. Consider more than one Facebook page.
3. Keep readers engaged.
4. Get ‘Liked.’
5. Blog.
6. Be everywhere (especially on YouTube!).
7. Know what works.
