When it comes to social media, a lot of us do too much all at once. What are the biggest mistakes people are making with their posting and content? How do you gauge if a seller is really serious? What is a huge misconception people have about marketing? On this episode, we answer questions and discuss the common social media mistakes people are making.

Tailored content for each platform is what actually builds reach and engagement. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

Don’t post the same content across all social media platforms.

Share more than your own content on social media.

Make sure you’re not just using landscape photos and videos.

Share wisely

At the start of the show, we answered a question on leaving a brokerage gracefully, and we started talking about the 10 social media mistakes people make and how to avoid them. We also talked about getting an authority stance over your competitors and how to use your marketing money to get business. Towards the end of the show, we shared on why you shouldn’t just share your own content.

We also shared insights on;

  • iPad listing presentations
  • Creative handwritten notes for FSBOs and expireds
  • Why you shouldn’t over-post on Facebook

Be of value

Before you rush to be valuable across multiple social media channels, start out by being super valuable to one person in one place or to one group of people consistently. Once you’ve mastered that, you can do more for other people. When it comes to marketing, go after people you already have a connection with, who have an urgent need for what you need before you go after complete strangers.
