Friday Freebie: An Easy Cure for Your Facebook Blues

November 06 2014

facebook thumbsLet's take a quick inventory of your Facebook page. Is it dominated by multiple links to your listings and generic market updates? Are your posts collecting likes, shares, and comments--or just dust?

If all you're posting to your profile is self-promotional material, then I have some bad news. You're an annoying Facebook friend! It doesn't have to be that way, though. In this week's Friday Freebie, we're going to introduce your profile to a shot of social media adrenaline.

Free 14-day trial of Facebook management tool CityBlast

We've told you the bad news. The good news is that your presence on Facebook means that you at least recognize the importance of the platform in reaching consumers. After all, Facebook isn't just the most visited site online--people spend nearly triple the amount of time on Facebook that they do on other websites!

The trick to being successful on this, or any, social network is knowing what engages people. "Treat social media as though it was a social event," Realtor and CityBlast founder Shaun Nilsson advises. "Act as you would at a party where you want everyone to like you." Would you walk up to a stranger, hand them a business card and brag about being the top agent in your area? Of course not!

CityBlast is a social media management tool that aims to take the guesswork out of growing a successful Facebook profile. Agents can choose what and how often they want CityBlast to post for them per week. All the topics are meant to engage your audience, build trust, and create leads. Topics include:

  • Real estate and mortgage news
  • Local listings
  • Tips for clients
  • Top 10 lists
  • Buzzworthy news from around the web
  • Polls and quizzes
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Architecture and design
  • Lifestyle tips
  • Homes and gardens

If you don't have the time, or the know-how, to keep up with your Facebook page, CityBlast can act as your personal social media manager. Try them out free for 14 days!
