Social Media Tip- How Easy is This
If you have one, two, or even ten listings in a single neighborhood, you have a fantastic opportunity to involve your market in your listings as well as their neighborhood.
You Can Steal This Idea- Please
This will virtually cost you very little but provide a very powerful impact on your neighborhood efforts.
How to do This?
Simply create your image 18″x24″ and send it over to the digital printers. Create as many signs as you need, I happen to know that most digital printers have discounts for multiples.
I would place these signs in the yards of current listings with your Sellers approval as your neighborhood blog is a part of your service to the Seller not just the buyers.
Make Absolutely Sure
Make sure on your neighborhood blog site that you have passive calls to action and the site is complete with contact information. Make friends with folks that add you on Twitter, and be very careful not to scare off spectators with 1.0 methods.

this is a great idea. perhaps in the spirit of community people can share sign templates. one issue that may arise is your ability to create multiple twitter accoounts. if I remember correctly, you can have only one twitter handle per email. if that’s the case, get your email provider to alias a few accounts for you ie: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com. you can then use these to acquire the handles for your neighborhood
I hope some folks will give this idea a shot and report back with their results

I really like the idea. It is not unlike something that we are doing with VoicePad’s mobile IDX except this is pointed to social media where ours is pointed to info via the cell phone or PDA…
Have you tried this with your sales efforts and if so, what have the results been.? I would love to compare and benchmark the numbers of phone vs twitter inquiries generated per sign. (Pretty sure that the Twitter is less, but on the rise?)

Eric, it’s an idea in concept, sortof. That’s why we’re inviting folks to steal it. we’ve done variations of this for other things and we got signups and increased traffic to local and sites using yards where we could justify the seller benefits.
I was thinking, an even more effective way of excuting this same theme may be to actually go back to the call 1-800 for info lines and adding the local blog info to it- this may be cleaner in the longrun- for example “twiter this listing” or check out our community blog or magazine…
However, for a big push, for the community itself, I think the yardsign will be the ticket- added to this

I love this idea. I am going to take this one by the horns and run with it. I am launching a brand new marketing plan for my neighborhood and this is going to be a key part the game.
Mike – ONe really cool piece is that it will give you marketing ability by tracking your by having to have a new e-mail account for each one.
