Going Beyond Real Estate Listings With Pinterest
One of the things I have observed over the years is so many real estate agents are absolutely CLUELESS when it comes to social media!

So many Realtors automatically think about BARFING their listings onto the internet like that is going to bring them business. WRONG!

In fact it is the quickest way to hear crickets on your social channels. NOBODY cares about your listings but YOU.

One such channel where you see this behavior is Pinterest. Folks unless you just listed a mansion very few people are going to care about the Ranch you just listed on Main Street let alone ever pin it.

Do you want to see massive traffic to your real estate site from Pinterest?

Good because I am going to show you how at my latest article at +Contactually. See some of my best tips for making Pinterest work for you.

I have a number of exceptional resources in the site including +Inman News +Placester +RESAAS | The Real Estate Social Network™ +The Social Media Hat and +Kyle Hiscock.

If you have ever wanted Pinterest to become a great traffic source to your website then check out this article.

Pinterest is the #1 traffic source to my website and it is not even close!

Have you considered using Pinterest for your real estate business? You may be surprised how useful it is for building better relationships in your network.

A wedding where nothing goes wrong or a seriously funny moment isn’t shared among the wedding party is a boring wedding in our opinion. Your wedding should be a time when you create some memories that last for the rest of your life. If you can manage to find one really funny, crazy, or weird

With all due respect, +Clive Hinchcliffe, that's great in theory, but $$$ gets in the way (for the time being).

Is it better for a first time home buyers to discover prevailing market conditions by failing a couple of times or to be given a reality check by their Realtor before looking at homes.

Are you thinking of buying or selling a home in Raleigh NC? If so then I would highly recommend speaking with Ryan Fitzgerald of Raleigh Realty.

Ryan is well respected when it comes to making a marketing plan when selling a home as well as a expert resource for those who are purchasing a home.

Michael George is one of the few people I will trust when it comes to SEO. He is down to earth and knows his stuff. Unlike some SEO's, who like to give you unrealistic expectations or do crooked things in order to obtain short term rankings, Michael plays by the book. If you have a Wordpress blog and need any kind of help either with implementing or running a site, I would highly recommend him! Over the years Michael has fixed a number of Wordpress issues I have run into for a very reasonable amount of money. You can't go wrong when you hire the Guru Effect!

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.

You will be surprised when going into Hopkinton Drug if you are expecting a typical drugstore. It is far from that! I would call it a specialty store that has a wide variety of items including a great selection of greeting cards, nick nacks, magazines, as well as snack items.
