Get the most out of social media by giving each of your accounts some personal attention. Here are 3 simple steps to boost your productivity in just a few minutes each week:
1) Like and follow people or businesses in real estate that interest you. This is a one-time step that will give you inspiration and material for your own posts. Just use the search feature in each account to find and like other business pages. Twitter also has “Who to Follow” suggestions that make this even easier. Liking and following other accounts may even gain you some follows and likes back! These pages will also show up in your newsfeeds. We’ll explain why this is important in the next step.
2) Set goals to log in and post… and keep them. Pick a couple times during the week to log in to each account and post an update. Download the social media apps on your phone to make this even easier. If you have tons of ideas for posts, that’s great — post away. If you don’t, take advantage of the people and businesses you followed in Step 1. Do they have a great post or tweet? Share it or retweet it with a question or comment.
3) Stagger your updates throughout the day or week. Wondering when to post your status updates? Wednesdays and Sundays seem to see more engagement, but try out different days and times to see what works best for you. If you’re an efficiency master, you can write a bunch of Facebook posts at once and schedule them ahead of time by clicking the arrow in the blue box next to the “Publish” button and selecting “Schedule”.
