Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley

Today's edition of "Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley".  First of all, we at Second Self Virtual Assistance have to give a hearty "thank you" to Carra Riley, the Countess of the Cosmic Cow Pie.  We were privileged to be intereviewed by Carra on her BlogTalkRadio program.  We were flattered that she recognized the value of what a virtual assistant can do for real estate professionals.  As usual, Carra was very complimentary and generous.  The time just flew by.  There was so much to cover in such a little time. You can hear the entire interview by clicking the play button below.

Highlights of our interview included:

SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) means adding keywords and descriptions that utilize key phrases you want to optimize for people looking for a Realtor® in your area.  The keywords are what people type in the search bar of Google, Yahoo or Bing to find exactly what they are looking for (for example, kingwood real estate, homes for sale in colorado springs, etc.).  After your site is optimized, we submit it to the search engines and a list of directories that Second Self has personally compiled over the years to help increase your SEO.  We also link all your social networks, blogs and websites together so that you can increase your "Google Juice", sending you to the top of the search engine rankings.

SOCIAL NETWORKS
With the use of social networks simply exploding over the last couple of years, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with your social networks.  Second Self Virtual Assistance can create and optimize Facebook fan pages to help you capture the attention of potential clients with a personalized landing page that links to your website, blogs, etc.

Second Self was happy to procure an exclusive deal with HousingStorm.com, a new social networking site.  The purpose of HousingStorm.com is to combine the best traits of Facebook and LinkedIn, with the added benefit of a blog thrown in.  For any new account set up through Second Self Virtual Assistance, HousingStorm.com will offer a free one year upgrade to a Premium account.  This is a savings of $300.

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Trying to keep up with social media is an ongoing process.  In an effort to stay on top of changes in social media, Second Self Virtual Assistance is currently enrolled in Social Media Marketing classes that teach the latest and greatest methods to market yourself via social media.

If you're in need of a real estate virtual assistant, feel free to contact me.  For a limited time only, if you mention that you heard our interview on BlogTalkRadio, we'll give you a discount on your first month's services.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Ms. Pam,

It was great to have you, Heather and Chrystal on the show today.  I am picking up the phone right now to hire you to get my facebook fan page all "tricked" out... I have NO time to do this and it needs to be done.  Thank you for sharing all the great things we talked about on the show.  I know that others reading this might just decide... saving the time is worth the money.. getting things set up to run smoothly and tie together, mailing lists, blogs, websites, fan pages, twitter, linkedin and even blogtalkradio is part of the new marketing. 

I am no longer doing bulk mailing of ANY TYPE and adverstising in print is returning NOTHING.. .so investing in your services to get things set up and running smoothly is where we are going! 

Activerain members might use you to set up their profile pages and widgets on the side if they do not know how or have the time to get it perfect!  You offer so many wonderful services!  It all takes time and you can make it look so appealing and tie it all together.

Thanks Pam, Heather and Chrystal.

Hi Joanne - The interview was a lot of fun.  Not enough time to talk about everything but, yes, it's all about exposure and then being able to back up your claims.  Fortunately, we get to do both.
