Finally. You’ve poured your life’s experience into a profile online. Now anyone who passes by online can easily find out everything they need to know about you. But, wait…how do you get them to pass by online?
Here are three easy suggestions for getting more mileage out of your online profiles:
If you decided to add all of your experience to every social site out there, you’d be too busy to make any money for at least a few months.
To get the most bang for your buck, pick a place, where you can share your complete experience easily and include the link to that profile everywhere else you’re online.
Your Trulia profile can be a great profile hub or headquarters for your resume. Not only does it connect your experience with your listings, but you can also
- Add a recommendation from anywhere across the web so your recommendations show up in one place,
- Show buyers and sellers which homes you’ve toured check-ins, and
- Easily check a few boxes to share what neighborhoods and property types you specialize in.
Don’t be afraid to promote yourself online every once in a while to bring attention to your expertise on Facebook, Twitter and other social sites.
While we don’t recommend automating your social life, scheduling some sporadic self-promotion on Facebook and Twitter is a great way to get attention for the online profile you worked hard to build.
Don’t forget, every check-in you make with the Trulia for Agents App can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and any other site that allows you to share a link.
3. Connect your online with your offline profile.
Every one of your profiles has a link. Make sure you’re sharing it both on and offline.
Think about it. Your business card or flyers can only hold so much information about you. Including a URL to an online profile can help buyers by pointing them to a place where they can quickly learn more about you, your business, and your listings.
Whether you include it on a business card or make it a part of your client presentations, take one of these steps to maximize your online profile.
After all, if you don’t tell prospects you’re a great agent, who can you count on to do it?
