HOW EXPOSED ARE YOU?

By
Real Estate Agent with CIR REALTY

 

Exposing yourself out there in the world of the Internet, I believe is key for today's Real Estate Business.

Keeping it business is also a huge element that cannot be overlooked.  Don't put it on the Internet if its not appropriate. 

Can you just imagine the kids today applying for a job in the future and what they put on the internet today will effect them tomorrow.  Believe me they will get searched - any if anything isn't to par, bye bye job.

I have exposed myself on the Internet for years for my Real Estate Business.  I blog, I have several websites, and social media outlets.  I enjoy this, and spend time working at this - however I don't spend endless hours at it either.  I'm in the middle.  Most Realtors don't even start. 

If I can offer a word of advice.  Start slow, ACTIVE RAIN - get blogging.  Make yourself a local expert in your area. 

I recently was hired by a buyer- because I had mentioned in my bio that I have NEW HOME SALES EXPERIENCE, and that I have worked in new homes on and off for years.  They are buying a home and I will be listing their current home in the future.

So blogging does work and the key is to keep at it.  Something will stick sooner or later = business.

Terri, I agree. The wave of the future is upon us and this will be the only way we will communicate and do business. Blogging is great and helps us in many different ways of expanding our own idea's in the written word.  Consistency produces results. We need to get in the blogging race now. Communication is key as well as the keyboard.

Terri, 

Thanks for sharing! You are so right, the days for info-hoarding in real estate are long gone.  In order to advance your RE business you need to become an open book and invite people to read.

Like Donna Paul said we just have to stop being the secret agent and let everybody know that we are still helping people buy and sell their homes. Congratulations on the Gold Star. Have a great weekend. Great post.

Hi Terri -- Sound advice. I try my utmost to ensure my online persona and competencies match my real life ones.  I don't think I'm quite there yet, but it's a work in progress.
