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.’
6. Be everywhere (especially on YouTube!).
7. Know what works.
