If you’re in the real estate industry and you love social media then you need to follow the five best real estate social media blogs. Like the name suggests the blogs are all about how you use social media to grow your real estate business.
Here’s the list:
Shameless Honorary Mention
I’m not allowed to vote for myself so I added my blog at http://rosshair.com to the list under the honorary mention category. This also meets the FTC requirements that mandate the inclusion of at least one bald guy with an ironic yet iconic last name in all lists that have anything to do with real estate social media.
Before moving to Inman Next as the Chief Evangelist, Chris Smith was the Tech Savvy Agent and a regular speaker at Social Media Marketing Camp. Chris has a cult like following derived from his countless speaking engagements all over the nation and his charming boy band good looks. Inman Next has an exceptional team of writers who share the latest real estate social media news and trends (not to mention the one and only Katie Lance as editor).
But most of all you get the latest news and reviews on critical social media and real estate tools and resources that will help you grow your real estate business.
Nicole Nicolay is another popular national speaker and keynote presenter at Social Media Marketing Camp. I love reading her borderline genius blog posts or reports on how social media and technology can put you ahead of the real estate sales curve and generate an endless pipeline of buyers and sellers.
You can catch up with Nicole at My Tech Opinion, a blog she writes with her partners Reggie Nicolay and Chad Johnson.
Real Tech Guy
Jonathan and I disagree on everything except that his blog and weekly podcasts provide cutting edge social media and technology tips for real estate professionals
The MLS App
Jimmy Mackin (he writes his name as Jimmy but answers the phone as James) has burst onto the social media scene with The MLS App. The MLS app really is an app that allows you to add the MLS to Facebook but it’s also the best place to find detailed “how to” reports on using Facebook to find more clients for your real estate business.
Are We Connected
Mike Mueller is a real estate social media pioneer who provides the pots and pans for many of the social media gold miners. In between speaking at every conference ever, Mike writes for his blog at Are We Connected, creates fan pages and consults to real estate professionals looking to leverage social media to take their real estate business to the next level.
The Phoenix Real Estate Guy
Jay Thompson is the Phoenix Real Estate Guy. Jay doesn’t share how he publishes his blog so you need to work it out for yourself or listen to one of his seminars. But his blog is uber successful so you should probably follow it and start to copy, reverse engineer and steal his best ideas.
General Social Media Blogs
I read and recommend the following social media blogs:
Mashable – http://mashable.com
Social Media Examiner – http://socialmediaexaminer.com
All Facebook – http://allfacebook.com
Real Estate Social Media Community
If you want to hang out and connect with other real estate social media fans then you must join Social Media Advocate. It’s packed with free eBooks and videos showing you how to use Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Activerain.
