Get On Board!
It would be an understatement to say that social media is a huge part of my business. Whether it’s on this blog, the White Oaks Blog Facebook Page, or @WhiteOaksBlog on Twitter, social media has been an absolutely game-changer for my real estate business because it allows me to connect on so many different levels with residents of San Carlos, as well as potential buyers and sellers. And writing about real estate and San Carlos is a ton of fun, too.
Many other businesses in San Carlos have employed social media to connect with their customers, too. If you want to see how a local business uses Twitter to absolute perfection, just check out Zest Bakery’s feed @ZestBakery. Or check out the Facebook Pages of both Bianchini’s Market or The City of San Carlos. Simply put, these are easy and tremendously effective vehicles to get the word out to the community about your business.
So….Not sure where to get started? Think it’s too difficult? Well, today is your lucky day…
