Social Media...Is it for You and Does it do What it Says?

To Tweet or Not to Tweet….that is the Question?


To Tweet or not to TweetWe have all been listening to the Social Media hype for the past few years. Does it work? Are you happy with it or are you getting your business on-line or from some other place like referrals or farming? Here are the major social media groups that everyone is using so do you think they work or not?






1. Facebook  

2. Twitter

3. LinkedIn 

4. Trulia 

5. Zillow

6. ActiveRain

7. Your Companies Software

8. Newsletters by Email

9. Pinterest

10. Your Website or Blog

11. Google+ 


To Tweet or not to TweetAre there other sites that you would like to share with us? Do you find old tactics for leads are now outdated or still working?


1. Farming

2. Postcards

3. Door Knocking

4. Referrals from past clients and friends.


 Please comment on what you think works and what doesn't work? I personally do not like to door knock but I do like walking my farm. Do many agents still walk a farm or is most of it done on the computer?


There is a lot of controversy and everyone seems to have their own opinion. Please comment below?

Hi Kristin, One of the nice features of having been in the business for a couple of decades is that my business is almost all referral and past clients. Even with that, we need all these tools you listed and involvement with them to stayed tuned in the various markets as they evolve.

Hi William,

I think referral business is the number one secret to being a good Realtor and shows you are doing your job correctly.

Hi Kristen,

Nice post.  I think social media can be effective and a distraction.  One this it is not, is immediate business.  Door knocking and farming is by far my favorite way of getting business.  Taking action is the key, as P.T. Barnum once said:  “Without promotion something terrible happens... Nothing!”

Make it a Great Day!
