If you haven’t yet integrated a social media plan into your real estate business, it’s time. Social media is currently one of the best ways for even small firms and agencies to garner a name for themselves and keep a loyal, active customer base. If you’re not an expert, don’t worry. Integrating different social media platforms into a cohesive marketing strategy may seem intimidating, but you can quickly learn, and the payoffs are huge. For your business, they might even be crucial.

Is your email campaign ready to go to the next level? Most organizations begin by mastering the blast campaign, or the email that sends a one-time message to your clients in a single go.

But time is key to building relationships, and if you feel that your strategy is ready to move from information to relationship building, some of your most important messaging might best be communicated gradually.

This is where the drip campaign comes in.

So plan to spend more time crafting your personalized emails.
