If you've been on Facebook lately, you have probably seen them. "I just signed up for Stik and I need your recommendation." These requests are everywhere. But, why should you get on the ball with Stik?
Stik is an online networking site using the Facebook Platform to connect with your friends and colleagues request and write recommendations. You can only make recommendation requests from people you know. Additionally, you can have your past real estate clients recommend you to other people wishing to buy or sell their properties. This is another fantastic tool to harness social media to market your business!
Because they utilize the Facebook Platform, your visibility on Facebook increases exponentially, exposing you to a much higher potential real estate clientele. Your Stik profile is visible on all search engines, giving great Google juice. Don't confuse Stik as a Facebook product, however. It is its own unique entity. With Stik, your Facebook connections can help expand your reach to potential real estate clients infinitely more than just your Facebook profile alone.
To sign up for a Stik account, simply click Login on their home page, access your Facebook account and you can make as many recommendations as you wish. Stik will import your friends list so that you can choose who you wish to ask for a recommendation from. It is completely safe, too, because they will never ask for your password...just permission to access your list of friends. Help promote other businesses/people whom you have had personal dealings with by making written recommendations on their Stik profiles, too. As we can all attest to, word of mouth is one of the highest forms of flattery and advertising there is anywhere.
Yes, Facebook is a great place to interact with past and potential clients as well as networking with colleagues. Why not extend your reach even further by using Stik to market your real estate business to its fullest potential. Get on the ball with Stik!
