YOUR SOCIAL HANDLES CAN TELL YOUR FOLLOWERS WHO YOU ARE AND YOUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES.
As an agent, you know firsthand how vital a consistent, professional image is for your brand and business. Your professional image usually comes from dressing the part, keeping your social media accounts active, and sending direct mail marketing campaigns to your clients. Those are all important, but it can also help to take a step back and think about the strategy behind your real estate social media handles and URLs.
What are social media handles?
Sometimes referred to as an “at” (or @), your username or URL, your social media handles are how people find your profiles on different social platforms. Since social media platforms come from different companies, you may have a few different handles or usernames floating around.
How can real estate social media handles be used to create a consistent professional image?
Your social media handles advertise who you are. Creating a consistent handle or username for yourself helps your clients identify you across platforms and see you as confident and reliable.
