Social Media is a Hassle it’s Confusing it’s a Time Waster and Where’s the ROI?

andrea blab final 22Social Media, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Videos, Blogging ~ are you kidding me?!

Social Media can help you keep in touch with customers plus helps people find you. Consider picking one platform and posting for 2-3 months. Then check your stats and see how it went. If your customers are on Social then why wouldn’t you be there too?

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • Instagram

If you need help setting up tracking we can help with that. Google Analytics is a useful tool but for Instagram you’ll want to look at other tools. Look at  this post on SocialMediaToday with The 5 Best Free Instagram Analytics Tools. 

  • Decide on a platform.
  • Ask your customers if you aren’t sure.
  • Start creating some content ~ words, pictures, and video.
  • Post to your blog or start a blog.
  • Try out posting tools like Buffer or Hootsuite.
  • Track and then measure.
  • See what worked.
  • Evaluate,  then do more of what worked or change the approach.

Social Media for Real Estate? Yes, I knew someone who wanted to give it a try.

Sherry and I experimented with Blab.im. We did a few tests and finally recorded something that was decent enough to watch. Because as much as Sherry loves the Yellow pages…she knows that Social isn’t going away.

A Minute of VIDEO + 1.8 millions words

So…she tried it out.

  • We did a recorded Blab which was a conversation about staging a house.
  • It wasn’t too bad. Blab sent us the video.
  • She uploaded the video to her new YouTube channel.
  • Sherry added a thumbnail image to the YouTube video in Video manager.
  • She posted the YouTube video link to her Facebook page and asked for feedback.

Here’s a screenshot of the Facebook post.
