Social Media For My Business

by: Maria Hass

The social media world is crazy! It is gaining popularity everywhere on the planet and is growing wild like weeds in an untended garden.

I don’t know if I can ever catch up with this frenzy or should just relax in my quiet rocking chair. As a Realtor running her own business, I have been told that social media will generate more business.

However, what I’ve figured out is, social media only works if you have time to work on it. After all, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogging and other social media formats require constant interaction to build relationships. If you’re not actively “liking” someone on Facebook or responding to Tweets or updating your profile, people think you are not “social” enough.

Realtors work social media in different ways. Some are more diligent than others. I have yet to really understand the world of Facebook. There seems to be a lot of bragging and “all about me” comments which I don’t think have much value, nor do I find time for.

I prefer a visit to a true friend or a good phone conversation – call it “traditional” – that’s the world I prefer.
