“I just use my Facebook page as my site.” is how nightmares begin.

If an on-the-fence lead decides “I’m going to reach out to that agent,” they need to be able to look you up easily even if your Facebook page goes down. Social Media brands come and go (MySpace, Vine & Periscope – do you even remember them?), but your own website remains your ultimate online storefront.

#1 – Your Own Website Is The Most Important Online Presence Tool!

Every business needs their own website, independent of any SM. Here are some things that your website can deliver if designed properly, that a fleeting social media network cannot:

Things that Facebook & Instagram Are Great For

  • Steady & constant content for brand awareness (under the Social Network’s branding, albeit)
  • Great at sharing open houses, new listings & other activity.
  • Direct and indirect traffic to your website (the end-goal)
  • Increase your reach through engagements (likes, shares, comments) to meet people you never would have!

Things that are better, or only possible on, Your Website

#2 – Your website is your own benefit – nobody else’s interests!

Any social media network is designed to keep users on their platforms longer for their own revenues. While it is a great platform for businesses to promote their brands on, always remember that Facebook is looking out for Facebook’s interest first, not yours

You own your domain. With the right website platform & web designer(s), you can get a website that is 100% built for your interests and tailored to your business model – no more conflict of interest!

#3 – Never Put Your Eggs in One Basket – Don’t Forget Other Networks!

Influencers who fail to diversify their exposure between different social media channels run into more hard times & regrets. Take these lessons to know that every business needs to take care of their digital well-being all around to be more successful.

#4 – How Do You Contact Leads & Clients if networks crash? Get #s and emails!

If that new lead isn’t in your CRM, you risk losing a deal. It’s easy to DM somebody over Instagram, until it goes down. Whenever possible, after the initial contact is made, get an email address & a phone number if possible. Having alternative contact methods and an organized lead tracking system can prevent losing deals.

#5 – Treat All Social Networks As a Gateway To Your Own Website

Postings & descriptions with links back to your website all serve to bring more traffic and increase your ranking on Google in the long run. This is the best long-term strategy to getting more business online. Social media traffic requires to to forever commit the work, while Google rankings have much longer permanence.

Diversifying the social presence is a good idea.

Many agents have found success using Tiktok, while Twitter can still serve as a great backlink tool. Just like a balanced stock portfolio, or a holistic approach to well-being, diversification to bring more traffic to your website (the end goal) is the best long-term approach – never rely on just one or two networks.
