In a commitment to reveal the best practices, systems and solutions for maximizing the opportunities presented by social media and social networking, RISMedia and 1parkplace announced the launch of the 2010 Dalton/Hundley Real Estate Social Media Census(sm) earlier this week.
In the first 24 hours, nearly 2,000 industry practitioners volunteered their time and took the opportunity to be heard by participating in the 10-15 minute market study.
According to Allan Dalton, Co-Founder and President of RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate Network® and author of the upcoming book, Leveraging Your Social Media Links – Converting Friends, Fans, Followers and Users into Buyers and Sellers, said, “The intense and immediate response to the Real Estate Social Media Census shows how social networking/media offers real estate companies and professionals an unmatched opportunity to become relevant with today’s savvy, technology-oriented real estate consumers, and how they want to be the leaders in their respective markets on delivering just that.”
Initial reaction has participants describing the Real Estate Social Media Census with the phrases, “well thought out,” “eye-opening,” “it’s about time,” “truly compelling.”
The objective of the Census, says Dalton and co-creator Steve Hundley, CEO of 1parkplace, a renowned creator of technology and social media solutions for the real estate industry, is to provide a basis of fact for the upcoming book, soon to be published by RISMedia titled, Leveraging Your Social Media Links, which is being authored by Allan Dalton with support from Steve Hundley, as well as provide solid educational reference for RISMedia’s upcoming Social Media Summit in New York June 9th and 10th.
The Real Estate Social Media Census will be open until March 15th and all real estate industry practitioners are encouraged to participate and share the word with their colleagues. To participate immediately, go to www.SocialMediaCensus.org.
All participants in the Census will receive a complimentary copy of the complete report and statistics, valued at $495.
The motivation for conducting the Real Estate Social Media Census was derived from filtering the thousands of mixed messages regarding social media and social networking circulating the real estate industry by the vast number self-proclaimed experts who may or may not have experience selling real estate.
Once completed, census participants are invited to join the Census Fan club on Facebook and follow the Census on Twitter.
“The 2010 Dalton/Hundley Real Estate Social Media Census (sm) is part of our larger commitment to serve the industry,” says John Featherston, Chairman of RISMedia. This year, RISMedia’s Annual Leadership Conference – “The Real Estate Social Media Summit” – will feature more than 80 leading practitioners and expert speakers on the subject of social media and emerging technologies with a special emphasis on blogging and mobile technology.
