It’s so important to post interesting and relevant information to both your website and your social media. This keeps your friends and fans engaged with you, keeps you in their minds when they think of real estate. Posting new information to your website also helps with being found in search engines as every time you post it submits a sitemap to the major search engines.
I am offering a new service that involves posting relevant content to your website and having it automatically post to your facebook page as well. I will post articles from sources like Houzz that involve home upgrade topics, real estate topics from places like CNN Money or AOL Real Estate news and some local events that pertain to your region. These events could be wine tastings, music events, parades, anything that is local and might affect your client base.
I will post 4 times a week to both your website and your Facebook page. We will discuss whether you want it to post to your business page or personal profile or both. The cost for this service can be as low as $17 dollars a month. Please contact me for details. I can provide this service for any wordpress website, whether you are a SMMCats client or not.
There are some companies that are soliciting real estate agents and what they do is post pictures with hashtags and some form of request. This doesn’t work to get engagement for your page and your business. Facebook and Facebook users have evolved past the idea of randomly responding to pictures that have no relevance.
As it is now, Facebook is throttling down the reach of your business page news feeds. They are pushing business users towards a pay model if you want to get more reach with your posts. Having a business page can still be a very important part of your internet exposure but you need to understand how to present it to people in your sphere.
Many of you have been asking for content for your website. You have been too busy or just didn’t know what to add to the site to help make it more valuable for your clients. I have added a new feature which includes over 200 tips for home owners, home buyers, home sellers, etc. There are holiday tips, monthly tips that get published on the first of each month and member only tips that require sign-in to your website, generating a lead. You can have as many tips as you want to be a member only tips or you can add more as you go along.
See the various tips using the menu on the right hand side of the website.
Plus you get a valuable new tool called My Real Estate Letters which also includes over 300 pre-written letters that you can customize for your own use. These are perfect for follow up drip campaigns, can be used in print and email and give you a complete system for keeping in touch with your leads.
I am offering this to you for a limited time with a one time setup fee of $129, prior to it being offered to new customers for $179. This includes setting up the tips and different categories and it includes adding plugins to create a member’s only section along with a registration page.
Topics for the letters include:
General Prospecting Letters
New Agent Announcement Letters
Slow Housing Market Prospecting Letters
Short Sale Prospecting Letters
Expired Listing Prospecting Letters

Ok, now that you all got my test post because I picked the wrong list (ron+mailchimp+newposting toy=Epic Fail) Sorry about that, but I have some really good news!! You can send email newsletters to all your contacts right through your wordpress site!! You can use MailChimp to send the newsletters, that’s a free service for up to 2000 subscribers. If you aren’t using some sort of newsletter or autoresponders, you are missing the boat on keeping in touch with your potential new deals. You can add your new lead, people you just met at an open house or a coffee shop. Mailchimp can automatically send them your autoresponder emails for as long as you set them up. You can also send newsletter with updates on the markets, new laws, changes that affect homes in your area or pictures of your last vacation!!
This is a very handy tool and if you don’t have something doing this for you, you simply have no excuse. It’s free to use!! It’s not free for me to setup, heck no, but it’s very reasonable.
You can have different lists for different sets of people. Buyers, Sellers, Leads, Past Clients, Church, Rotary, whatever…
Here is what I can do to help you:
I setup a mailchimp account for you.
I create a template using your consistent branding with your website
I add plugins to your website integrating wordpress with mailchimp
I upload your contacts (you have to provide me with a csv file)
I create a category for your posts in your website.
Here are extra things I can do for you:
Setup multiple lists, add different groups of contacts
Add multiple categories in Facebook so you can post to a specific group
If you have the social media package, your newsletter can also post to Facebook and Twitter, as well as your own website. Talk about exposure!! You are getting yourself all over the place with one post. If you don’t have the social media package, contact me to discuss adding that/
This is a really easy and fun way to send out your notes to all your contacts. Contact me for questions on pricing and how quickly I can add it to your website.
