Tips for using Pinterest in Real Estate

By following these tips, you’ll be on your way to creating a huge presence on Pinterest and you’ll be reaping the benefits soon!

Create Eye Catching Graphics

In order to be successful on Pinterest in real estate, you need to create graphics that will catch people’s eyes for your content.  Since Pinterest is all visual, no graphics results in no opportunities for your content to be pinned.  It’s vital to your success on Pinterest in real estate that you create at least 2-3 memorable graphics that relate to the topic you’re writing about.  There are several user-friendly websites and programs that are available that make it easy to create great, eye-catching graphics.  One easy way to create graphics for Pinterest is Canva. If you use 3 graphics that are 800px x 1200px they will perform very well on Pinterest.  It’s important to remember to use Royalty free photos and not do a Google Search to find images.  If you don’t have the rights to use a graphic, you’re opening yourself up to potential legal problems.

Create Local Boards

Pinterest provides an excellent opportunity to prove you’re a local expert.  As you’re building your Pinterest presence, you need to make sure you’ve created local boards. Your local boards shouldn’t only be filled with your greatest and latest listing.  These local boards should provide people who are interested in learning about your communities some helpful information.  Pins about the local dog parks, events and important news in your area will help position you as a local expert!

Join Powerful Group Boards

One of the best ways to effectively use Pinterest in real estate is to join powerful group boards.  There are dozens of excellent real estate group boards on Pinterest.

The primary reason group boards are so beneficial to join is because they improve the reach of your pins.  For example, if a group board has 10,000 followers, any Pin you share with the group board will now have the ability to reach these 10,000 followers.

Follow Other Successful Real Estate Professionals on Pinterest

Regardless whether you’re looking to build your Pinterest presence or another social media network, it’s highly recommended that you follow those who are having success.  One of the best tips for using Pinterest in real estate is to seek out and find those professionals who are having great success on Pinterest. As you discover these real estate professionals on Pinterest, evaluate how they are using Pinterest.  In most cases, these professionals are more than happy to answer questions you may have about Pinterest.

Don’t Forget About Your Pins!

One of the most common reasons why real estate professionals don’t succeed at Pinterest is because they publish a piece of content, shares it all over the place right away and never share it again.

Only pinning a pin once is a missed opportunity to reach the a large portion of the potential followers of these boards.  Unless these group board followers happen to log in to their Pinterest account in the near future, your pin will likely go unseen by them so re-purpose your pins and share them often so after you pin something share the same pin to a couple different group boards for the next few days, keeping in mind to space the Pins apart a few hours.  This greatly improves the chances that more people will see my graphics, which will hopefully result in them Pinning my graphics to their own boards. Do not be afraid to go back even in a month, 3 months or 6 months and share it again!

Happy Pinning!

September flies like wildfire!!

WOW!! My how time flies by, it was just the last week of September and now we are into October already!!!  If you are like me, you are wondering where did Summer go!! We certainly are getting busier with each year that passes us by, making it seem that life is starting to look like a super fast train moving forward and never stopping!!

Life has been pretty busy with family events, weddings, friends visits, many real estate photography sessions and many many events!!

This month I participated in the first ever Fall Fashionista event on September 15th 2016 at Trinity Church in London, Ontario. It was a fun evening! Heather Ringland, (center, black hat, orange and black top) is a fashion designer, who along side with Women In Business, Sherry Simoes and these other amazing ladies and myself, got to meet many guests and showcase our various items or products to the guests. It was a busy night for all!! Being the photographer for the evening, it is never dull when your having fun!!

 

Earlier in the month I have also photographed Sutton Group – Select Realty an Invitational Charity Golf Tournament at Fire Rock Golf Resort. It is usually a very busy day for me when I do these events! This time I had the pleasure of having a guest with me touring around and helping for the event. After the golf event we ventured over to The Ceeps for dinner and an auction and many prizes for the evening. Proceeds from this event were to help with FEMAP. The beneficiaries are young adults age 16-25 that suffer from mental health issues, the organization is called: First Episode Mood and Anxiety Program (creating awareness for mental health known as FEMAP) Today’s young people need our help more than ever before, you can read more about FEMAP by reading here: http://www.lhsc.on.ca/About_Us/FEMAP

Here are some photos from this event with Sutton-Select Real Estate agents, volunteers and the many guests who came out to enjoy the day and donate to a worthy cause for the FEMAP.

 

Earlier in  July, I also photographed another golf event. This one was called The Krista Riedman Classic. To help raise funds for awareness for Drunk Drivers. This young lady was killed at a young age from a drunk driver. It was a beautiful day out and everyone had allot of fun and enjoyed being able to raise funds for this event. If you would like to see more photographs from this event please visit either my website or my Facebook page.

As we are now in almost the middle of October now, the fall season has sure arrived with it’s beautiful fall colours and of course some very unseasonable warm weather as well as some very cool nights.

We need to take this time to look around our homes to make sure things are put away, there are no holes for any little unwanted creatures to come inside when it is warmer inside then outside!! Perhaps even take the time to winterize any flowerbeds or garden beds, making sure all down spouts are in working order as well. I know we are guilty of the last minute checks also!! For once, I have completed 1/2 of these chores, but as a lady, I am NOT getting up on the roof!! The boys can do that!!

I’d also like to take this time to Thank all of my current and past clients for using my services this year thus far. With all the changes and various things that have changed both professionally and technically, it can be challenging to say the least sometimes. Being patient and getting feedback from each and everyone of you is important and helpful for myself to continue to improve my services and continue to give 100% to all my clientele.

This is a great time to get those listings photographed with all the beautiful colours in the trees! Now taking bookings! Call or email us!!

Please also make sure you have my current update email information and have taken the time to sign up to my newsletter and or have joined us on social media platforms. Check us out!!

Have a great month see you soon!!
