Bill Gassett's insight:

Using social media properly is one of the most misunderstood things for many people. The natural inclination for many is to use it as a tool to sell something. Unfortunately this does not get you anywhere unless you have built relationships with your audience first.


The perfect example of this happens all the time in my industry (real estate). Realtors are constantly shoving real estate listings down people throats like this is somehow going to magically propel their business.


The common denominator of agents who do this is to hear crickets on their social media profiles. People do not go to social sites to be sold real estate listings!


Social media is about building meaningful relationships with people that will help grow your business. In the article I share actionable social media tips for Realtors on on to use some of these platforms properly. I also offer some excellent groups that can be joined in order to expand online visibility.

10 Must-Know Tips to Leverage Pinterest for Your Business

10 Must-Know Tips to Leverage Pinterest for Your Business | Social Media Engagement | Scoop.it
Pinterest offers perhaps the most unique benefits among all social media platforms. And if your businesses’ content marketing strategy has not factored Pinterest in the mix you are missing out on a huge chunk of traffic from a site that sends more visitors to web properties than the much-vaunted Twitter and has more than 70 million users.

Via Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com
Bill Gassett's insight:

Do you use Pinterest for your business? if not why not? If you have this pre-conceived notion that it is a bunch of house wives pinning curtains and pocketbooks you are WRONG!


Pinterest is in fact the #1 traffic source to my real estate blog. After you get your feet wet by using Pinterest I would suggest doing a couple of things that will really increase the potential for user interest and engagement.


These include adding a "pin it" button right onto the images on your plugin. There are a few Wordpress plugins out there that will do this for you.


I would also apply for "rich pins" which add schema meta data to all of your posts making them look awesome.

Best WordPress Plugins: 40 Experts Share Top WordPress Plugins | Social Media Engagement | Scoop.it

Best WordPress Plugins: 40 SEO and WordPress experts reveal their 5 favorite free and Premium WordPress Plugins. Amazing content, check it out....

Ileane Smith – BasicBlogTips

This question comes at a really good time because I switched themes recently which caused me to take an even closer look at the plugins I use on Basic Blog Tips. Before I give you my five favs, I want to start off by saying how important it is to have a great theme with basic features built-in. This will make a huge difference in performance and greatly reduce the number of plugins you need to install.

My current theme is Genesis and I use a child theme from Appendipity called Showcase. So right out the gate I don’t need to install any social sharing or following plugins because they are integrated within Showcase.

With all that said, it’s still challenging to pick 5 plugins but I’ll give it a shot.

1. Anti-spam – is the newest one I’m testing to cut down on the time I spend moderating comments. I almost don’t want to give that little secret away because somehow whenever a plugin like this gets popular, the spammers figure out a way to work around it. But it’s so good I have to share it with you guys.

2. AuthorSure – is a plugin that takes all the fuss out of setting up Google Authorship, which is essential for any blog with multiple authors and for bloggers who don’t  want to mess around with code. It adds a nice looking author bio box and a lot of other options as well.

3. Pretty-link Pro – is another must have for anyone doing affiliate marketing. It makes your links easier to remember and it’s also great for YouTubers and Podcasters who want to share links on their shows.

4. WP-Optimize – is a great one to have around. If you haven’t used this one before, the first time you run it, you will most certainly notice that your blog loads faster.

5. P3 Plugin Performance Profiler – will come in handy when you see that your blog is loading slowly. This one will tell you which plugin is causing the issue and give you a complete rundown of the time it takes for each one to load. When you see the load times, I know it will be hard but just un-install the one with the longest load time and you’ll be thankful you did!

Pinterest NOT just for recipes and crafts!

ScottsdaleHomesoldfast's comment, September 20, 11:44 PM
While searching for the best marketing technique in real estate, I took a commercial real estate class from a lady once who's mantra was, "All real estate is microeconomic." The four P's of marketing apply in real estate too. Placement, Price, Product, Promotion. I had a marketing prof who included a fifth P, which was Person. All of those P's must be in alignment for any marketing strategy to work as intended. Consider who your person is; create the appropriate promotion; put it in a place they will notice it; advertise the desired price and for the desired product. The appropriate and effective marketing mix will be "microeconomic" or geographic specific, more appropriately. I would love to hear your views on this?
