2009 will be the year of web 2.0 awaking for many New Hampshire  REALTORS.  Are you ready for it?  If not you might be left in dust…

I’ve listed a few of my top “must do” for all NH REALTORS

1. Join and set up a profile on Flickr.com and be sure to upload all your community pictures. Your focus here should be on exposure and ultimately engaging with the consumer.

2. Join Facebook.com and set up a profile be sure to join the NH REALTOR group and any other group that attracts you.

3. Join LinkedIn. This is a professional group and setting up a profile here is a must!

4. Explore Twitter.com and search out local twitter members.  Be sure to follow me on twitter @monimcg.

5. If you haven’t started Blogging you should join Active Rain the number one real estate social networking site, it’s free and the best place to learn about blogging so join by clicking here. Remember this is a social networking site where you will be one of over 100,000 members. Blogging on Active Rain is a great place to be but you should not put all your blogging eggs in one basket.

6. Once you feel comfortable you should think about setting up your own Blog site where the majority of your blogging efforts should be.  If you need help doing that consider taking one of my upcoming Blogging classes. Or hire someone to create a blog site for you like Jay, you can see an example of his work here... Jay McGillicuddy’s wordpress Blog or check out my blog at www.NHRealyScoops.com

Mind your manners

*** Someone said that joining a social networking site is just like going to a party that you’ve always wanted to be invited to.  I totally agree with that!  You wouldn’t walk in and immediately start selling yourself or your products. You would start talking and engaging with the people at the party…getting to know them… long before you ever ask for business.

Social Networking  is a community…and just like when someone speaks to you in your neighborhood (your real life community)  you answer them, if you’re invited over for coffee, you return the invite.  Social Networking is the same way only most of talking is via commenting and the visiting is via blogs.  Answer the comments people leave on your blog or photos and go visit their blogs or photos in return.  Remember to Engage!

Are you ready for it??

Happy New Year everyone!
