5 Things that can help you get Clients on Twitter

No clients from Twitter? No problem. Try doing the following:

1. Have a Great Profile

Try to look as good as the person your client is looking for.

If you know your client well you know what they expect you can become what they expect.

Write your profile using the words that answer the questions of your market. People are looking for answers let your profile tell them you have what they are looking for.

Use great pictures for your profile. Well taken photos that show your face are great in helping people identify and remember you.

If you are a company or brand use your logo.

2. Tweet Frequently

Tweet everyday especially when your clients are online. Find out when your audience or market is online. Be where they are so you can have those conversations.

Use the right key words and hashtags that relate to the subject being talked about.

3. Participate in Twitter chats:

Twitter chat is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag. This hashtag allows you to follow the discussion and participate in it. Twitter chats are usually recurring and on specific topics to regularly connect people with these interests.

Participating in this exposes you. Participate in the chats related to your niche and where your customers or audience would likely be too.

4. Respond to Everything. Social Media is about people. Talk to them. Answer questions. Respond to comments. Thank new followers. Follow back if you want. Talk to people. Find a way to improve relationships. The more conversations you have the better your exposure. Ask more questions in order to get the real problems your audience really have and deal with it.

5. Follow the Big Guys in your Industry.

Every industry has their big guns. They have the market and followers. They have the audience you want. Follow them and Build a relationship both with them and their followers who you are interested in.
Create a relationship first, sell later.

3 Steps to Get Leads on LinkedIn

We hear a lot about leads and more leads. People tell stories how they got clients from different social media platforms and all that. Today I would like to share my own story of how I get leads on LinkedIn. I had Facebook Live video where I described this you can watch here : Facebook.com/TheoracleVA/videos

Here it goes…

1. Take note of those checking your profile, try to improve your KLT(know, like and trust) factor.

When you get notifications from LinkedIn that your profile has been viewed, what do you do? How Important is this information to you?

For me it tells me:

– I’m attracting attention.
– that there’s something about me that interests someone or other people.
– They are interested in what I’m offering or probably have.

It’s not enough to get this notifications… You have to make them count. Don’t let LinkedIn down. Convert these people.

This is how to convert your profile visitors

Go to the profile of the visitor. Find enough information about the person, read their posts, check out their updates, see what they are interested in e.t.c

Doing this will help me package my offer to the person when we start the conversation. It should help you do the same too. You need to know the person and so you can build him or her to take action.

When you finally get in touch, you already have something of interest to talk about from your research on the person.

Break the communication barrier.

Don’t start with trying to sell something. I repeat don’t start with trying to SELL. Give this new relationship time to grow.

Build your KLT- know, like and trust factor then it becomes easy to sell. You can offer services for free in the beginning. Later on you can ask to be paid.

2. Be active on LinkedIn. Take note of your friends updates and that of their friends.

Pay attention to what’s happening in your niche and network. When you notice something interesting get in touch and try to build a relationship as we have talked about above.

Do this frequently. If you have an E book give it out. It improves your relationship and grows your authority.

3. Participate in LinkedIn groups: Be where your market is and your customers are. Listen to issues people have in the group. Continue to work on building more relationships again using the steps already mentioned above.

Relationships first. Sell after.

I hope this helps. Would love to know your thoughts on this. Any questions just ask me.

Social Media For Real Estate

Real-Estate-Social-Media-Marketing

This is a long post of how I use Social Media for real estate accounts that I manage. Just a few tips. I first posted this in a closed facebook group for social business that I manage.  To get in Click SocialmediaSWAT 

First read my 20 Social Media Tactics and then read my post on Social Media and Fashion‬ ( I tried not to repeat things I have already mentioned in previous posts) then you are ready to continue with this…

You need to know and understand your real estate onions first before your practice this. Understand that the industry is location specific. what works in kuala lumpur might be slightly different from what works in abu dhabi. But the basic principles of real estate marketing and creating good experiences are the same. So here we go.

One thing I have noticed in this industry is that many times everyone is trying to sell the same property. So you can do a little competitor analysis.

[Tweet “-What social channels are your clients and prospects using?”]
-What social channels are your competitors using?
-What type of content are your competitors posting?
-What level of engagement are your competitors getting?
-What tone of voice are your competitors using?

The goal is not to be louder than the competition on social media – [Tweet “the goal is to BE more social, more engaging,”] offering something better that would help you win more. Keep it real and talk like a human.

If competition is too much you might need to differentiate and go into a particular niche.

1. Have a Content Strategy
Ask yourself, ‘what type of content would be most relevant for my brand, for my audience and where am I going to get that content?’ Next, create a content grid or editorial calendar where you can map out topics you plan to post about over the next 30-60 days. Curate content by using Google Alerts or by creating specific lists on Twitter for specific types of content you’d like to re-tweet or re-post.

Remember to create and use local content. Show photos of the areas around your clients or around where the property is. If there are great attractions at the site , show it.

1B . Post frequently. [Tweet “Use the 80-20 rule for posting.”] Post 80% helpful and valuable posts for your audience and 20% post about yourself and your business.

2. Use Ads
Facebook’s Ad Platform allows you to create custom audiences to market and re-target this content to the following audiences:

People who have visited specific pages of your website up to 180 days ago.
People on your email database who fit the target market description.
People in or around specific suburbs you service who are interested in certain lifestyle interests or who fit a certain age group and demographic description.
A “Lookalike” audience can also be created whereby Facebook will find similar people to those in your above custom audiences.

FB ads + Email marketing is an awesome combo.

When using facebook or other social media platforms Tag well, especially those you know are already interested in real estate, use locations well too

3. Get leads to market to.
Give out irresistible great offers for free and then use it to capture leads of people interested in real estate. Market to these people, invite them to join you on your social media platforms. Create a newsletter for them, Give them freebies and communicate frequently with them. Be their friend. Selling is about relationships. Offer them exclusives.

4. Use photos and videos: Give a virtual Tour
Your clients’ time is precious, and they want to understand as much as possible about a property prior to visiting in person. Virtual tours are a great way to give a comprehensive, accurate preview of the property for potential buyers.

I do this with my samsung galaxy s5. Apps like Flipagram and Magisto can help you turn your great photos into slideshows or video.

5. Use Emotional Storytelling.
[Tweet “Utilize emotional storytelling with compelling copy and powerful visual elements.”] People respond to stories – tell a good one. Talk about a client’s need and how you satisfied it, show pictures of the happy couple and their baby ( this is classic) and clients will flock to you.

6. Get Known, Liked and Trusted
Trust is a big issue in this business…Testimonials are tremendous trust signals. Showing that real, live people endorse your services means the world to potential clients.

When a client has had a great experience with you, reach out to them and ask for a testimonial. If possible, try to get a photo of them as well. Make the most of these testimonials by placing them strategically on your website and sharing them now and then on social networks. Facebook pages has an area for testimonials.

7. Incentivize Your clients.
Provide incentives for past clients to refer you to future ones if possible have an affiliate marketing system.

8. Connect with Industry leaders
This is quite important to improve your trust quotient. Connect with them on platforms like Linkedin and share and comment on their posts providing real value to boost your visibility and relationship.

Remember Strategy wins battles not Weapons.
