Facebook? A dinosaur gives in...and loves it!

By

I have to confess...I was a Facebook holdout. Not because of time....but because of loyalty. I'm an AR kind of guy. The kind that likes to post here, and meet RE types from all over the country.....

Until I was 'yelled at' during a seminar on how to effectively use 'social media' like AR & Facebook to augment (not be the sole driver of) my marketing efforts.

I've been signed up for 24 hours (like my favorite TV show!), and already have 21 'friends'......and 2 new potential clients. All for spending 1 hour yesterday learning the system.

Does this mean that everyone will have instant success by doing this??? No.....but I did....and I don't see why everyone wouldn't. Just use it as an extra tool...not as your sole marketing plan.

Did you know that Jeffry Gitnomer is on Facebook? ...and he is now a 'friend'.

If you are not already using Facebook, I would heartily recommend it!!

Even just for the fun factor, FB is worth it!  Look for groups IE: high school etc... and join them.  it is amazing how many people you know that are active

Isn't it fun, Loren? My mother-in-law signed up on Facebook yesterday, so she could stay in better touch with her children/grandchildren. I've yet to meld Facebook in to my professional social marketing efforts, limiting my professional "friends" to a very select few so far.

Hello Loren, I signed up on Facebook last week and have 50 some friends so far.  I feel it will be a free way to stay in front of people you know.  I have also communicated with people I haven't heard from in 20 years.  Good luck!!
