Build Your Real Estate Business and Brand with Google Plus

Build Your Real Estate Business and Brand with Google Plus | Real Estate Articles Worth Reading | Scoop.it
If your business depends on trust for your success, then you'll want to hear what realtor & Google Plus enthusiast, Bill Gassett has to say.
Bill Gassett's insight:

If you are a real estate agent and have thought about using Google Plus take a look at the G Plus Lunch Bunch show hosted by Ray Hiltz. I was fortunate enough to be asked by Ray to come on his social media show to discuss how a Realtor can use Google Plus.


While the shows title speaks to the real estate industry the advice given in the show really applies to any business owner who wants to use Google Plus.


The show was a great discussion with a number of folks who are successfully using Google Plus.

Thanks, Kyle and Bill. I agree with Bill. Just do it, Kyle. do some informal Hangouts with friends to get a feel of it then when you're comfortable, do a HOA. Because it's uploaded to your YouTube channel, it the content that never stops ;-)

Google Plus For Real Estate Agents

Google Plus For Real Estate Agents | Real Estate Articles Worth Reading | Scoop.it
When it comes to social media, there are two platforms that are no longer optional: Facebook and Google Plus. Yes, Twitter is cool and Pinterest is fun, but they can’t do for your real estate business what Facebook and Google Plus can -- at least not yet.
Bill Gassett's insight:

If you are a real estate agent and you are looking to grow your business through social media channels then you will want to take the time and go through this article that offers advice on how to use Google Plus, Facebook and Pinterest for your real estate business. There are many real estate agents who are using Facebook but have not caught on to the power of Google Plus for business. In comparing Google Plus vs Facebook for Real Estate there are a number of things to consider. Google Plus is the only social network that is also integrated with Google search. In other words if you are logged into Google and someone has connected with you on Google Plus and has either shared or +1 your post they will more than likely see it when they do an online search. By claiming Google authorship (see the article) you can also get your picture in search results. This has been shown to increase CTR dramatically! Facebook and Pinterest also should have a place in your social media arsenal. Take a look at the article and be sure to follow some of the links as well.

If you have a question on home buying, selling, or refinancing, you'll find the answer here. Best advice from 25 top mortgage and real estate professionals.
Bill Gassett's insight:

Are you in the market to either buy or sell a home? My Mortgage Insider rounded up some of the top real estate and mortgage experts around the country and asked them to offer up some of their best real estate advice.


What you will see in the article is a myriad of advice on all sorts of real estate topics. I was asked to provide some expertise for the article and what I mentioned was the lack of understand from numerous homes sellers about open houses being an effective sales tool.


In fact an open house has one of the lowest home sale conversion rates of any activity in real estate. Less than 2 percent of all homes sell nationally as a direct result of an open house.


My addition was just one small part of an excellent article with so many great people contributing. All of the experts who provided information for the article are regular contributors to the Google Plus platform.


Take a look at the advice - you won't be disappointed!
