How are you using social media to connect with today’s consumer?
We’ve set up community and business pages on Facebook that are specific to the markets we serve in order to provide the consumer with the information they’re looking for. By posting all of our listings, ‘coming soon’ flyers that lead back to our website and even taking advantage of some pay-per-click advertising, we’re doing everything we can to provide as much value as possible to consumers via social media. While we’re just starting to dig into social media, our community pages are steadily growing. We’re also seeing an increase in the amount of visitors coming to our site directly from the new listings we’re posting on Facebook.

What is one of the biggest challenges your market is facing and what are you doing to overcome it?
Our biggest challenge is trying to keep our inventory up and grow our marketshare. In order to overcome this, we are constantly implementing new solutions that will help us get more listings and generate more leads.
