I have seen a real improvement in my Google page rank since being featured on the Realtor.com blogsite. There are so many social media outlets out there as well as blogsites, and people ask me what is best for SEO. I am not a techie expert even though I have a background in technology. I have always sought technology that makes me more productive. I measure productivity as a combination of effectiveness and efficiency. If your search for search engine optimization is weighing you down and keeping you from your customers, then you may be less productive. Sometimes keeping it simple is the best plan. If you get into Facebook, then use it to promote your website with a fan page and advertising in the marketplace. If Twitter is your thing, set up your phone for mobile tweets. I have a pretty basic phone, and I tweet from the street - just not while driving. My wife says I am four thirds full of crap, and if that is you then try blogging. Try to keep it relevant, but it is ok to express your opinion.
David Knox is real estate speaker that I really enjoy, because of his use of humor in his message. One of his sayings that stuck with me, and is very true of the internet is "You don't have to be good - You just have to be there." If you are not there, then nobody knows just how good you are. If you cannot be found, you may never get the opportunity to help that prospective customer. Get found first. Once you are found then provide information that is helpful and useful, and people will keep coming back. These basic rules work for any type of social media including face to face - the original social media.
