Social Media nuggets for your (commercial) real estate business!
Hi Everyone! Since I had a lot of requests from last week’s group coaching calls to post my segment on my blog, and here it is! One of the best things that I took from the Mega Partnering event in Chicago (megapartnering.com), was Francis Ablola’s social media session. If you guys have seen one of my first initial vlogs, I had uploaded my first interview with Frank, back in the day, and let me just say, not only is Frank a fabulous social media coach, his presentations get better and better, packed full of great tips, for all types of audience, whether you’re a beginner at this or looking for advanced tips, there’s HUGE value in what Frank presents. So, let’s get to it, shall we!?!
This first part is a quick review of Frank’s first presentation from Mega Partnering back in February 2011; still some amazing stuff:

The best way to get started if you’re looking for any type of online presence. If you do not have a website yet, this is the best site to start one….for free!

This site gives you the ability to set up website presence on multiple sites; this kinda goes hand in hand with protecting your brand….
3. animoto.com -
One of my fave sites: let’s you create photo and video slide shows. You can use it at the free level; I found that for $30/year, you get a lot more.
4. textbroker.com -
This site allows you to create articles for as little as 2 cents per word – imagine that! Great deal, if you’re looking for more web presence and building credibility, because they have writers who can create fast articles on the subject of your choice at a fairly great bargain!
5. createspace.com -
This site allows you to create a book or other form of online media presence; this is what Frank says one of the greatest tools for building credibility.
6. Last on this list…
Frank’s fave (and mine as well!). Hire someone to do anything and everything for as little as $5 bucks! From creating a singagram to social media projects, there’s nothing that’s impossible on this site!
This was from Frank’s last presentation…
Now it’s time for the recent stuff, the good stuff that I took away from at mega partnering in Chicago.
