  7. In the “Agent MLS ID” field, you will need to enter your six digit KWLS ID code, which you can find by logging into the KW White Pages (From MyKW, Under “Quick Links,” click on “White Pages,” then search for your agent profile. Your KWLS ID will be listed next to “Associate ID” on your White Pages profile).
  8. Back on eEdge, enter the ID, and click “Save.” You’re done! You can now market your listings using the many wonderful tools eEdge has to offer.

Note: You can also enter an ID that will allow all of the listings from your market center to show; however, you must confirm with your broker before doing so. For further information, contact Market Leader.

Social Media Do’s and Don’ts From Family Reunion

If you are not currently in Anaheim at Family Reunion, you are missing out on some of the hottest trends and gadgets in the real estate industry today. No worries – our blog is here to keep you abreast of all the latest developments!

A recent seminar held at the conference tackled the popular issue of social media and how to best utilize it as a marketing tool. Tech experts including Liz Landry, Sue Adler, and Jay Papasan weighed in on some of the things you should and should not be doing with your social media. A short list of these “do’s and don’ts” can be viewed below. For the full list, please click the “Full Article” link below.

Social Media Do’s

  • Be yourself – your professional self – people are watching. If you can’t be who you are, perhaps you should reconsider whether being on social media is right for you.
  • Follow good etiquette. Give more than you take.
  • Be Present and Be Authentic.

Social Media Don’ts

  • Be negative – Do YOU want to follow someone who is negative?
  • Blatantly/advertise on your profile. Your Facebook profile is not the place to post your listings.  Posting listings and asking for business is a sure way to get unfriended/unfollowed!
  • Be 100% about business.  Have fun with it.  People want to connect with YOU.

Keller Williams Signature Partners has a passion for technology that we believe will wonderfully suit your needs as a real estate agent on the cutting edge. Contact us today for more information.

Maximizing Your Online Presence Through Social Media

As a tech-savvy real estate agent, you likely already have a social media presence, especially on Facebook. But did you know there is more you can do on Facebook than creating and managing your profile and fan pages?

Facebook advertising can extend your business reach and allow you to touch potential clients who may never see your profile or fan page. Although your ultimate goal as an agent is to negotiate a sale, the objective for your social media marketing is to create an enhanced awareness of your business for those who may be interested in the message you are providing.

To that end, here are a couple of tips for making the most out of your Facebook advertising.

1) Fine-tune your Facebook ads – Target your ads by classifications such as geography, age, gender, and etc. Experiment with different images for your ads depending on their purpose. For example, if you are seeking out first-time homebuyers, consider utilizing pictures of a young couple.

2) Create deeper engagement – Offer something for your potential clients, such as an eBook or seminar invitation, in addition to your sales pitch. You can then encourage respondents to provide feedback on your pages.

3) Analyze, then alter – Facebook provides a variety of tracking tools to help you analyze the effectiveness of an ad. Monitor items such as your click through rate, clicks by demographic, and clicks by age bucket.

More tips such as these are always availble on MyKW, a special intranet system designed specifically for Keller Williams agents. Contact our Team Leader today for more information on a career at Keller Williams.
