Boost Your Twitter Presence

twitter-101If you’re a Pro Gold customer, we’ve already set up a Twitter profile and started tweeting for you, but you can take a few simple steps to personalize your account. Log in today and follow these tips:

  1. Get familiar with Twitter: If you’re still wondering what Twitter is all about, and tweeting, retweeting, hashtags and @mentions are making your head spin, take a peek at this short, simple article that explains the basics of Twitter (and all of that jargon).
  2. Customize your bio: You’ve got 160 characters to summarize yourself, so make them count. Mention your credentials and service areas, and maybe a highlight such as how long you’ve been in real estate or a recent award you’ve won.
  3. Find people and businesses to follow and keep it professional: The people you follow determine what you see in your timeline, which can give you great ideas on what to tweet or material to retweet. It also encourages the people you follow to follow you back. Determine who you follow from a business perspective – national industry, successful businesses or agents in your area, and colleagues.
  4. Keep it simple with the mobile app: Download the Twitter app for you phone to get easy access to your account and fire off some tweets throughout the day. Bonus tip: up the impact of your tweets with photos and short video clips. Arriving at an open house? Snap a photo of those balloons with your phone and instantly tweet about it. Finishing up a closing? Nothing gives your followers the warm fuzzies like a short video testimonial of your happy buyers jangling their new keys. The ability to upload photos and video are built right into the mobile app.
