Don't let a hectic real estate schedule push social media marketing to the bottom of your to-do list. Here are some tips to make the most of your time:
- Choose a tool that allows you to manage all of your social media profiles in one place. If you've never heard of Hootsuite or Buffer, check them out and choose your favorite. The time you invest in getting to know one of these platforms will pay you back many times over. These tools let you schedule posts across your social media channels, gauge the best time to post, curate content to share with your audience, and much more.
- Find great content that your target audience is interested in. You should follow and like others in the industry †on social media so that you have sources of content to share. Both Hootsuite and Buffer offer tools so that you can do this all in one place, instead of on each individual social media platform. In Buffer, you can do this with the "Feeds" tool, and in Hootsuite it's the "Streams" tool.
- Use analytics to assess what's working. Hootsuite and Buffer both have Analytics that will allow you to see what types of posts your audience is engaging with (or not). Use that info to tailor your posts to your audience's tastes.
- Make some time to personally check your social media profiles. All of these tools are amazing ways to keep your social media running on its own, but you still need to find some time to check in on each account personally. Take 5 minutes at lunch or in between showings to log in and like a post, retweet an article, or share a video.
