Hootsuite is pretty sweet…

hootsuite_1106910254They tell you that you should be present on all social media platforms, but there aren’t enough hours in the day to be constantly updating each site. Do you wish there was a way that you could post to all of them at once? Well, you’re in luck!

I would like to introduce you to Hootsuite, an online tool that links all of your social media accounts together, making your life easier. With Hootsuite, you can post one message that will automatically be filtered to all of your social media pages. You can even save yourself a lot of time by scheduling posts to be distributed days, or even weeks, in advance.

Hootsuite takes it a step further and collects analytics on your posts and provides a report on your ROI. This helps you make sure that you are reaching your target audience and can help you determine which social media platform is getting the most results.

They offer three different plans, which allows you to choose what you need for your brand. If you’re not sure about Hootsuite, why not give their 30-day free trial a try? Social media is all about trial and error in order to figure out what works for you and your brand. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work at first because gathering a following takes time.

If you would like to learn more about social media, you can attend the ACCELERATESM classes offered by our very own Homesale Career Development course. There are three elective classes, that anyone can attend, which deal with the topic of social media: Your Online Presence, Facebook Business and Embracing Video.

BHHS Is An International Sensation

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was a premier exhibitor at the LPS Shanghai show in Shanghai, China on December 7th-9th, 2018. They were joined by over 11,000 visitors and more than 200 luxury real estate companies from 45 different countries. The event is an invite-only show for well-qualified buyers, investors and VIP’s interested in luxury real estate around the world.world_1063994879

Being a part of this event puts BHHS and all of its network franchises into a prestigious category in the real estate industry. There were seven BHHS network franchise representatives that greeted attendees and discussed real estate opportunities in each of their respective markets, spreading the word about the global success of this company.

What does this mean for us?

The more global we are as a network, the better results we can provide for our clients in our marketing efforts. At Homesale, we already have a substantial international reach, but we need to continually expand our endeavors in order to stay a leader in the industry.

For a luxury certified agent, these ongoing exposure opportunities could be key to your success as well. Anyone moving to the United States could potentially be swayed by a company name they recognize as one that promotes prestige and excellence.

Maintaining Work-Life Balance in a 24/7 Job

WorkLife_748165192.jpgReal estate agents often feel as though they can never quite shut off from work. There are always additional listings and customers to pursue, marketing plans to develop or a community to learn information about.

Finding and keeping work-life balance can be a challenge for real estate agents vying to close deals and, in the same breath, keeping their minds and bodies sharp.

Here are a few tips for maintaining work-life balance in a 24/7 job.

 

Establish Boundaries. In order to turn off after leaving the office, you need to figuratively turn off. That means setting rules for when you’ll check your work email, return calls, and be considered “on the clock.” While there may be exceptions every once in a while, if those exceptions become the norm, you can find yourself down a rabbit’s hole, sucked back in to work when you need time away.

 

Set Daily Tasks. Sometimes we fall behind by letting go of the simpler, routine tasks. Instead, take charge of your paperwork and administrative duties. Keeping on top of document filing, answering voicemails and emails, lead cultivation and calendar management can lend more sanity and structure to the day. Some people even schedule specific times each day when each of those items is tackled.

 

Plan In Advance. Friends and family members may not understand that work can crop up when it’s least expected. That’s why it’s a good idea to explain the need for advance planning for simple things such as dinner parties and tennis matches. Good friends and family members will understand the constraints on your time and help you schedule your leisure activities well in advance.

 

Schedule Time for You. Everyone needs some “me time,” and for real estate agents, it can be hard to figure out when to squeeze it in. That’s why you should schedule it. Book it as though it’s a critical work meeting and keep this time free for you and the things you love to (or have to) do. Stick to these times and every six months assess whether the amount of time and the timing is the right amount.

 

Be Realistic. When you schedule your time, don’t leave yourself 5 minutes to get to a listing 15 minutes away. Be sure to schedule in travel time, factoring in for distance, traffic, or that cup of coffee you need to get on the way. Try to avoid scheduling meetings back to back and be sure to give yourself some flexibility each day.
