Social media has brought much success to our firm, via deal flow, networking and marketing. Streamlining is simple. You can lead a majority of your prospects, and others who would interact with your business to either of the social outlets that offer this. You also want to be sure you are on every platform, not just the ones you may be familiar with, as different prospects have different comfort levels with each. Create a word document with a standard bio, education, and overall summary for both yourself and your business, save it and use it to copy and paste. This saves a lot of time in completing the applications. However, the best way to automatically streamline your social marketing efforts is to utilize the sites that offer it. They are as follows A) www.LinkedIn.com B) www.CRPIG.com C) www.Twitter.com D) www.Facebook.com. Simply post the other web addresses where they ask you, if they do not offer a window into the other sites. Finally, be sure to constantly talk about the other platforms where you reside, encouraging your viewers to sign up and join you there. Others you may not be familiar with are www.Realtown.com, and www.ActiveRain.com as they are both focused on the real estate industry. Announcing your presence in these and other social media outlets, is a professional strategy used by larger corporations. You can even go as far as placing a link to those places on your web page, or other advertisements informing them of such. Though the latter are ''home-made'' streamlining tactics, they are just as effective.
