Sell my home? Naaaah, that’s not gonna happen to me! You? “Me neither….” “Me neither….” Oh, how they were so wrong as they were also “twitterpated” into euphoria, the natural order of things in the wilderness. You have to love Bambi. But who knew this concept was just as cool and romantic as the idea of social media selling homes? I even think Dr. Seuss with his SEO antics would agree….
Seriously, though, this isn’t just about social media as a whole — but about the faster-than-a-kiss, charming digital Cupid of the cyberspace super-highway. Twitter. The same service that has made headlines several times for years as the World Wide Web continues to dominate the real estate world. Who would’ve thought that even Twitter would now dominate the real estate market? No one saw that coming. The same as being twitterpated.
Bambi, Listen Up: It’s All About Getting It Done in 140 or Less
That’s actually the trick to Twitter. Your updates have to be within 140 characters. You’re not writing novels here. Your updates as fast and simple. It’s like chatting, but your dialogue lasts forever and can even be searchable! Talk about serious word-of-mouth advertising.
How does that affect the real estate market? Like a love-struck skunk when you think about it. Twitter’s actually a perfect match for the real estate industry, and when you state “sell my home,” you instantly skyrocket your visibility just from one update.
Think if micro-blogging, another term associated with Twitter. Instantly, when I update my Twitter with “sell my home” along with some info in today’s industry, and as long as I have a huge assortment of followers on my profile, my little posts that take literally less than one minute to write on a computer, or tablet, or even smartphone, can be viewed by a huge number of people. This is good for networking — and good for getting your business out there. Before you know it, saying “sell my home” becomes easier than eating pie or daisies.
You can utilize your blog, or your Facebook, or even shared content from somewhere else, and Twitter will actually shrink the URL, allowing you to go into more detail in those 140 characters. That goes from micro-blogging to micro-advertising. And it’s free.
Tweet about something happening in the real estate market right now. Perhaps you have some properties that have just gone on the market, and you want to tweet about them. Go ahead. You’ll freak at the response and visibility just from spending that one minute to type a few words.
Of course, you have to build your followers list. Network. Expand. List your profile on every piece of literature, advertising and marketing you have. The Bigger your Twitter follower list is, the more people will see your updates.
Fall in Love With Twitter as I Sell My Home? I Can’t Resist….
I would sell my home in multiple ways, no doubt. Social media’s an effective way to sell my home, for sure; but I would never discount the little birdie that is Twitter. I love you, Twitter.
