How often do you post?
On Facebook we post 5 times a week
On LinkedIn we post 3 times a week
What time of day do the posts go out?
It depends on the optimized time of day for your page. We tend to post in the late afternoons to Facebook and LinkedIn.
Do you customize posts?
No we do not customize posts. All of our posts are tailored for real estate agents but not for you specifically.
Does that mean I will post the same thing as another real estate agent?
Yes. This is completely ok though because the likelihood that your Facebook follower is following more than one real estate agent on social media is less than 1 percent.
Do you do Instagram, Pinterest or other social networks?
Right now we stick to Facebook and LinkedIn because that’s where you have to be as a real estate agent in 2019. We do have resources and tips on what you can do on these networks though!

What is the difference between my timeline and my newsfeed?
Your timeline is the space where you see your own posts and your newsfeed is the ongoing list of the activity from your friends and pages you like
Status Update: A post to your friends/followers
Follow: When you choose to receive updates from pages or people
Comment: When someone adds their thoughts to a post you shared
Notifications: Updates about activity (likes, comments, etc.)
Tagging: A tag links a person, page or place to something you post, like a status update or a photo. For example, you can tag a photo to say who’s in the photo or post a status update and say who you’re with.
How do I generate a lot of connections on LinkedIn?
Joining groups and forums is a good way to connect to other professionals in your industry. Sharing valuable content and engaging your connections is a great way to stay in touch and relevant.

This will keep you at the front of their mind.
