Hey #VREBC People, we want @Real_TechGuy to teach us about Facebook!

Hey Gang,
I was invited to speak at #VRBC (Virtual Real Estate BarCamp) on the topic of Facebook. Since I’ve met most of you on Facebook that makes sense.

Now they’re telling me, “We have too much Facebook, what else can you talk about?”

I call BS on this. You and I both know that I should be talking about Facebook. Now we need to let them know. ย Here’s how we can do it. Look up at the right hand corner of this post, see these two buttons?

facebook-twitter

If you have a Facebook and Twitter account, then click on both buttons to let your networks know. (If you only have a Facebook account click on that button.)

That’s how easy it is to let the world know what you’re thinking in Social Media.

  • Hey RTG, not to be a “party pooper”, but I always thought a better subject would be “SN Consolidation”/Time Managment. Teaching realtors how to “manage” their multiple SN's. Apps like Posterous and Digsby for example. I think you would be great for that ๐Ÿ™‚ Just a suggestion…

  • I think those are excellent topics Eric.

    I feel like i've spent tons of time building up my Facebook presence, so that is where my biggest audience is. Right now I'm working with agents who want to use Facebook more effectively for business. If they can't get this ONE network right, it'll be hard for them to use all the other networks.

    Maybe you and I should talk more about that presentation, I think it's something my peeps could definitely use.

    I think an entire segment on facebook pages and groups would be good. How to connect your website/blog directly to a fb page, how to post links from other website to specific pages, how to share to a specific page, etc, etc.

  • Just remembered another one you can do that was very successfull in my experience…Jott! Teach Realtors how simple it is to use Jott while they are driving to create “Great” blog posts, using “drive time” for great Time Managment! They can talk about Showings, Listings, Rides with Buyers, community events, interesting landmarks they pass, schools they pass (they can take pics too and ad them to the post), ect…

  • Those are some great ideas, I will have to create some videos around them. Thanks!!

  • I used Jott before I had the iPhone, at the time it was free. Now I think they went to a paid model.

    Nowadays I use the Evernote app. It's a more complete system because you can sync and access from the web, your phone, or your computer.

    Another good topic is “fb etiquette for Realtors”. I tend to get frustrated when Realtors that seeking business use their main profile page to do it because they fall on my page. i.e. I received a posting from a Realtor the other day that said, “the market will be great in 2010. Contact me for all your real estate needs 555-555-5555” – another one said, “thank you for all your referrals this year. i am glad that your family and friends were satisfied with all my real estate services to them. Please continue to forward my name and number 555-555-5555” . Now I have a separate page for real estate that I can (not that I would) post that type of stuff too. These postings now show up on my profile page. I think as Realtors we should have some type of standards because I feel some people are crossing the line with interferring with other Realtor's clients.

  • Kudos for sticking with what you feel you can help your audience with the best. It's not always about bending to whatever people ask of you. A lot of times it's about doing what you know is the most powerful thing to do.

    How can you even consider Johnathan for another topic. He is THE Expert on Facebook and needs to be discussing this. Please reconsider your wanting him to speak about something else.

  • I think REALTORs are getting over this. A year ago they were all writing their name and contact info everywhere there was a blank space, I'm seeing a lot less of it now.

    It's up to us that know better to lead by example and share content that will help them learn. It's not like Social Media came with a handbook, ya know?

  • You're too kind Melody. Thanks to all your help Jim from the Real Estate Tomato gave me my topic back ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Emmaniece

    I agree with you. That is the one thing about FB that I don't like. There's a cross of boundary I wish was not there. I hate that when I log on to my FB account, the first thing I see in my home page are postings from other agents and their ads. There should be a way to streamline the home page to show only our information; after all it is our account right?
