Having just burst onto the social networking scene (ha ha) I'm still trying to learn how to best use all of these various tools for the real estate business. I have found tons of great advice here, and I'm someone who looks first to those who've found success, or failure, and I try to listen and learn. That's easy to do here on Active Rain, but less so on Facebook and Linked In.
With Facebook, it is a bit easier because there really is more of a social (fun) aspect to rely on. But with Linked In, I've been struggling to find ways to make it useful for our particular industry. It seems to be more geared toward freelance workers who depend on connections to line up work.
Having said that, I'm never one to get discouraged (see above for ha ha comment) so I decided to create a group for Rhode Island Real Estate professionals. I'm hoping to have lenders, attorneys, agents, and all the rest. And I'm hoping to find yet another way we can work together to help us get on the other side of this market, with as few scars as possible.
So, without further ado...here is the group information and an invite for all of you.
