TOP 5 IN REAL ESTATE, March 2009-In an effort to make consumer real estate information truly viral, RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate is launching the Top 5 Real Estate Social Networking System – “Where Consumers and Members Meet.”
The Top 5 Social Networking System links the third and fifth precepts of Top 5 membership: providing information and commitment to community. By embarking on the Social Networking System members can achieve new levels of outreach into the communities they serve by providing timely, relevant real estate information that will become viral well beyond their respective local markets. The Real Estate Social Networking System will position you as a thought leader in the real estate arena-as opposed to just being one of the masses on traditional social networking sites.
Unlike most existing social networking concepts that require members to congregate via an individual site (think Facebook, LinkedIn), the Top 5 Social Networking System flows through you to your members via email. Through the Real Estate Social Networking System you will bring information directly to consumers as opposed to waiting for them to come to you. Through this System, you will regularly receive newsworthy real estate articles via e-mail from RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate; simply add your contact information and a link to your website at the end of the article and forward to your clients. Intriguing subject lines will inspire your clients to open the email, read the article and then forward to those family and friends who can also benefit from the information. By simply forwarding an e-mail, your outreach will increase exponentially.
The Top 5 Social Networking System will provide articles on subjects that matter most to your clients, such as “5 Ways to Prevent Foreclosure,” “5 Reasons Not to be a FSBO,” and “5 Secrets to Buying a Short Sale Property.” Each article will be brought to consumers on your behalf as a Top 5 member and will be distinguished by referencing five points or tips on a particular topic in order to further promote the Top 5 brand. All articles will also be archived on the Top 5 Resource Center for members to reuse at their convenience.
Stay tuned for further details on the Top 5 Real Estate Social Networking System. Your member services representative will contact you shortly to get you up and running on the program.
