The real estate industry and mortgage industry are very similar when it comes to social media.
As a mortgage broker using social media you should be looking to share your knowledge and build relationships with people that could potentially use your help or just enjoy understanding about financial issues.
Google Plus is a wonderful place to create relationships for a mortgage broker. Not only is Google Plus a social network but also is finely integrated with search. Unlike Facebook Google Plus is not a "walled garden".
One of the things mentioned within the article is using Google Plus and claiming authorship of your content. This will allow your picture to show in search which potentially can increase your click through rate quite a bit. Nothing brings more curiosity that a photo.
If you are a mortgage broker wanting to learn more about how to use Google Plus well as a social media tool take a look!

So you want to be a Google Plus expert but are still confused as to why some people are getting so many shares and plus ones on their posts while your not. Well, there is no need to fret there are several simple aspects to the perfect Google Plus post that will help develop some great engagement to your posts and bring you the shares and plus ones that you desire.
1.) Develop An Interesting Story:
It is very important that you try and only post interesting or exciting topics that other people will want to talk about. The more interesting and exciting the story or idea the more engagement from other people you will see.
2.) Use Engaging Post Titles:
It is also very important that you use creative and convincing titles to optimize the engagement on your post. Try to form around an 8 to 10 word title.
3.) Format Your Content Correctly:
Google Plus only has a limited amount of options, but you can change your text to bold by putting these () around your word or phrase like *bold text, or to italic by putting () around your word or phrase like _italic text, and even strikethrough your text with (
4.) Use Meaningful Descriptions:
Your posts should always come with a meaningful description of a minimum of around 50 words even if it is an image, website, or repost.
5.) Always Include A Picture:
We all know that a picture is worth more than a thousand words but they are also consistently the top shared content on any social media platform. Images will also double the visibility of your post too.
6.) Always Incorporate A Website Link:
You don’t need to be sharing a post as a link to give the link the credit of the plus ones and shares. If you include a link in the body of your post all the plus ones and shares will be credited to that URL.
7.) Give Credit Where Credit Is Due:
It is important to give credit where credit is due and mention their names in your post. This will also encourage them and their friends to engage with your post.
8.) Always Use Hashtags:
You should always try and incorporate relevant key words as hashtags into your posts. However, we recommend that you put them at the end of post and not in the body of your description and try to limit it to three or four hashtags per post.
9.) Remember To Go Back And Be Engaging And Responsive:
It is imperative that you go back to your posts and be as engaging and responsive that you can, it is not good enough to just post and forget about it. Responding and engaging with others on your post will double your post activity and encourage other people to engage with your future posts as well.
