5 Reasons Why a Realtor® Should Tweet
You pretty much have had to be away on an island in the South Pacific (maybe you wish you were?) to have not heard about the latest social media tool and craze: Twitter. And just to help you see the forest for the trees in case you're interested in how Twitter might be helpful to you personally in your real estate business, I've got a real quick and simple list of 5 reasons why a realtor should tweet. (Just in case you didn't know, "tweeting" is the term used for communicating on Twitter.) And so here are the five reasons...
Reason #1: You can gain/access useful real-time (right now) information on any subject including real estate. (Google isn't necessarily "real-time.")
Reason #2: You can network with like-minded professionals both in and out of the area. People in your field you might never have had the chance to connect with, now you can simply and easily.
Reason #3: You can find out/listen in on what people are saying about real estate and buying and selling property. You can then engage them in conversation, answering their questions, offering insight, etc.
Reason #4: You can offer useful information yourself (not just real estate information) on the local area. Write blog posts highlighting what your area has to offer in restaurants, recreation, etc., and then "tweet" them for others to read and respond to.
Reason #5: You are able to go where the people are from the convenience of your computer. Many of the old school approaches to doing real estate are important and good. But there's a new generation of buyers and sellers that you don't want to forget. They're on Twitter (as well as other social media sites). You need to be there, too.
