Photography For Real Estate on Facebook
Posted by larrylohrman on November 30, 2007
Shaun McLane (AKA Ekday Realty on flickr) initiated a thread in the PFRE discussion group earlier this week on the subject of making use of the fact that you can add a business to you facebook profile.
I must admit that I’m not all that into the social networking scene although I already had a facebook profile because my cousin Nik was on facebook and I wanted to follow some of his activities. Shaun’s point is that he has already gotten some RE photography business from his facebook business page by simply letting his facebook friends know about his business.
I’m interested in promoting this blog so I thought it would be a good way to get links from facebook to PFRE. I’ve heard that google “likes” links from social sites. So I built a facebook page for PFRE. I also found that 20% of my gmail address book were already on facebook so I invited all those folks to be “my friend” and become a “fan” of PFRE. I noticed today that the blog is already starting to get traffic from facebook.
I think Shaun is right, creating a facebook profile and business page is at least good website promotion and if you use it well it can bring you clients if you are a RE photographer or Realtor.
Feel free to become a PFRE fan if you are on facebook.
