Real estate companies should also use social networking to the fullest. Aside from developing sites like denvers-real-estate.com, it is also best if they use Twitter to have a broader audience.

Great site. lots of helpful info here. affirmative twitter may be a good way to share a read and far a lot of .Twitter conjointly provides the chance to post links, pictures and info graphics from your own web log, and once your social media friends click those links, they\’ll leave comments on your web log.

Nice Article, you are right on when it comes to providing value. I like providing links to my new listings as well as breaking industry news. Question, between facebook, twitter, your blog, etc how are you finding time to do them all? Do you have a preplanned schedule?

Personally, as far as social media, I work off a checklist. It is the only way I have found to stay on top of it all. And, even with that, projects can push the day-to-day needed social media tasks aside, at times. It is an ever-evolving process, ever-improving, just like life, itself.

Yes I agree, social media is a great way to market your real estate business. Good content about your real estate agency would attract more customers and it would let them know about your services and offerings. So, social media is helpful to promote your business.

Twitter may be a good way to promote your services, but I think Pinterest is the best method to attract attention to a property. If the house has anything that stands out, pinning it and highlighting it as a focal point could really help get the word out about the sale.

You absolutely need a tasklist or checklist. I print one out on Monday and literally cross off the social media tasks each day. It’s not perfect and I do miss days but overall it’s helped with consistency.

I never would have imagined Twitter as a tool for helping out. It can seem over whelming with the amount of social media forums that can be used and the previous comment about using a check list is what it will ultimately come down to. Too bad there isn’t a program or app to help coordinate all of them. Thanks for the share.

Most people would rather own their home instead of rent it. Who wouldnโ€™t? When you own a home you provide stability and security for your family. Home is where the heart is and there is a lot to be said about being โ€œsettled in.โ€ For most it gives comfort and a good feeling; for children it provides a sense of belonging, especially in school.

Good points. There are some advantages to “renting a flat,” but owning a home does give that sense of belonging (and investment).

Its better for the blog content should be updated frequently in order to keep the readers regularly, because there are repeated visits and subscriptions may happen every time.

People will fix houses, and add to houses simply to get as much profit as possible out of the market. This benefit is generally unmatched by many other investments; you can make a lot of money by simply investing in a home. While it is hard work, it can reap large monetary benefits.

Deborah E. Anderson

Yes, it is a great way to get the word out. I imagine it is especially helpful when you have home buyers following a realtor and use those hashtags for specific locations, so the followers can get tweets directed at exactly what they are buying. A win-win, to be sure.

Twitter Tips for Real Estate Bloggers

Twitter Tips for Real Estate Bloggers

You’re in real estate and you’re ready to take on the internet, but how does Twitter figure into your marketing plan? Furthermore, should you integrate Twitter with your real estate blog? The good news is this: Your blog and Twitter can work together in a way that provides value to your readers!

Bringing A Smile To Their Faces

With just 140 characters, you might feel like you have to scramble to say something on Twitter that no other real estate agent, or person, has ever said, but that’s just not true. Your Twitter friends understand the limit of the social network. This actually works in your favor. You can back off trying to be the smartest or most original and simply post something whimsical or entertaining, at least some of the time. It takes the pressure off of you, and it may brighten another person’s day. It’s a win, win situation, really.

Beyond the whimsical, you should still post valuable content. Not everyone can make it big by posting LOLcats. Twitter gives you the opportunity to discuss industry news, link your new property listings, and ask buyers and sellers what they need from their real estate professionals. In this way, you provide even more value to consumers.

Twitter Visibility on Your Real Estate Blog

It might not be enough simply to join Twitter and post links to your blog update. You have to make your Twitter presence visible on your blog, too. What do we mean? Simply that you should at least link to your Twitter account on your blog to let your current visitors know you’ve entered the social domain. However, showing your recent tweets, which is possible with several Blogger widgets and WordPress plug-ins, gives you another way to increase visibility. Visitors who see your recent tweets will associate them with the person, or people, behind the blog. Sometimes, dissociation can occur when people see your tweets separately from your other online presences.

Get the Conversation Going

Not only do we recommend playing with a Twitter widget right on the front page of your real estate blog, but we recommend using it to actively engage your visitors. If they can reply to your tweets from the widget itself, they’re more likely to do so than if they have to navigate to Twitter, find the post and then reply. Plus, some widget tools let you display posts from multiple authors, which is handy if your entire real estate team is on Twitter. Finally, consider an option that lets your visitors see the entire conversation, including replies from other people. The back-and-forth might be just what your readers need to jump in on the conversation and let their own voices be heard.

Twitter also provides the opportunity to post links, images and infographics from your own blog, and when your social media friends click those links, they can leave comments on your blog. Twitter doesn’t have to replace your current commenting system, but you can think of it as a way to supplement those comments, especially if you know that particular users are likely to go off on a tangent.

It’s worth noting that you can allow your visitors to reply to comments with their Twitter account, which some social media users might prefer. You’ll have to swap your current commenting system to Disqus or LiveFyre to make the change, but both support signing in from Facebook, Twitter, Google and OpenID, among other account services.

Do you have any tips for Twitter and blog integration?
