I was interviewed and included in last Friday's Chicago Tribune Real Estate section on social networking in real estate. As you know, I've been blogging and using creative Internet marketing for four years. This year, there has been an explosion of stories concerning "social networking" as an agent.
Unfortunately, the critics and advisers like to tell us the "Dos and Dont's" and are way too conservative. They like to tell us what's appropriate and professional. What the advisers fail to tell us is their personal experience and monetary success when blogging and using sites like facebook.com.
I'm proud to say that I can directly attribute at least $3 million in sales last year alone to clients that contacted me off my blog. I wonder what the critics and advisers think about that?
