Social Media Academy Launched for Top Real Estate Professionals

June 14 2016

PLEASANTON, California – June 14, 2016 – Katie Lance Consulting, one of the real estate industry's leading social media marketing firms, announced today that their new learning portal, #GetSocialSmart Academy will be launched today. The academy was inspired from Katie Lance Consulting's successful 6-week coaching program, also named #GetSocialSmart, that has been running for the past three years with more than 100 graduates in the program.

The #GetSocialSmart Academy is an online learning platform where members will be able to access a complete library of social media training tools. The academy will launch with more than 40 training videos and downloadable materials plus access to Katie Lance's signature 6-week #GetSocialSmart coaching program. Academy members will be able to access the Academy 24/7 on any desktop or mobile device. In addition, all Academy members will have exclusive access to Katie Lance through the private member-only Facebook Group. Each month, Katie Lance Consulting will be unveiling additional new training materials to the academy including live webinars, video content and downloadable material.

According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2016 Member Profile,? 91% of all real estate professionals use social media in some format.

"The #GetSocialSmart Academy was created out of an enormous need in the industry for smart social media education at the agent and broker level," Lance said. "Top agents and brokers want to do better when it comes to social media, but so many don't have the time, or don't know where to start. The academy was created to solve this problem, and to bring social media education and training to more agents nationwide."

Topics covered in the #GetSocialSmart Academy include training on: social media strategy, content strategy, blogging, Facebook Personal Profiles and Business Pages, Facebook advertising, Instagram, Pinterest, video marketing, Facebook Live, Periscope, LinkedIn, Twitter and much more. The Academy is designed exclusively for the real estate industry.  All of the training materials are geared toward helping agents and brokers build better relationships with their clients through social media, and generate new leads and business through an intentional social media strategy.

According to Lance, the ideal Academy member is, "The type of agent that wouldn't miss a closing. You are the type of agent that always drops the keys off to your clients - because they are more than a transaction, and so much more than a 'deal.' They are a family who are about to create a lifetime of new memories in their new home and you understand this sacred space. Every home and every client of yours has a story."

The #GetSocialSmart Academy launches on June 14, 2016, with the support of 11 top industry companies including: Adwerx, Inman News, Deductr, SmartZip, HomeKeepr, Mason-McDuffie Mortgage, Fidelity Title Phoenix, Happy Grasshopper, Lab Coat Agents, d11 Consulting and Contactually.
