Your profile is built through your website and you must be prepared to put the ongoing work into it to keep it vibrant and alive and able to reach the target market. The content must be easy to follow and have good value to it and provide something to the reader.

Your profile is not only built through your website presentation but also through your social media efforts. There are many social platforms that can be utilised but they will only provide the results according to the work that is put into them and the approach that is taken. A prime example is Facebook where both a personal Facebook outreach or a Facebook page can be most effective for real estate agents. There is a huge learning process that comes with using these venues. One of the most important aspects to keep in mind when using Facebook Marketing as a real estate agent is it to keep the tone conversational and not to be creating sales pitches.

There are a lot of mistakes that can be made when using Facebook which really must be avoided. The whole idea here is to build a profile of you as an agent and your real estate company. What you want to do is make a choice of either using your personal Facebook or building a business page. What you do not want to do is use both. It becomes confusing for those that are interested in your Facebook presence.

You also do not want to use your Facebook merely for posting your listings or boasting about your property sales. These can be added to your Facebook content, but it is highly important that you have other good informative content there as well. Basically what you are trying to do is keep the junk out of your Facebook presence. You want this to be a personalised and informative presentation towards your social media.

Building your profile is very important and highly important when it comes to any social media platform you decide to use. Remember that the primary purpose of these social media outlets is for socialising. Business can become a good part of it but only when it is utilised in a conversational manner. It is a golden opportunity for you to build your identity and expertise in the R.E. industry in a social setting, as long as it is conversational and not sales orientated.
