Social Media is the cheapest and easiest way to reach a large audience with your message. But most Real Estate professionals are failing to use social media in their marketing. Inman recently released a comprehensive report stating that over 50% of agents report that the biggest mistake a Realtor can make on social media is not posting regularly enough. But between showings, writing contracts, prospecting and the millions of other things that fill a Realtors day, social media posting usually takes a back seat. No savvy marketer would ever tackle social media without the help of an automated scheduler, so why should you?
