Jonathan Hawkins Top Tips to Leverage Social Media for the Real Estate Industry

Published

on

Did you know that 77% of all realtors use social media as a tool for generating business? Out of this number, 97% use Facebook, 59% LinkedIn, and 39% Instagram (according to the National Association of Realtors for 2018). If you haven’t guessed it yet, I will tell you where I am headed with this – social media is the way to go if you want to upscale your real estate business this year.

 

The only issue is you don’t know how to leverage the various social media platforms to benefit your business. Jonathan Hawkins was like you just four years ago. Only this time, he did not just sit and wonder. Instead, he dedicated his time and money to master the art of using social media to reach unimaginable levels in lead generation and conversions. It is a good thing that he decided to do so, because after he cracked the code’, he created The Hashtag Agent – the solution to your questions about how you can leverage social media for your business.

 

We know you cannot wait to go to The Hashtag Agent to learn all about the training, but let us first treat you to Five Ingenious Tips from Jonathan Hawkins to Leverage Social Media for the Real Estate Industry.

 

  1. Strategize First

 

Do you know why many agents produce great content but nothing fruitful thereafter? They simply fail to produce any business. Why is that? Jonathan Hawkins says the problem is the lack of strategy. According to him, if you don’t have a strategy, you cannot expect results. Jonathan says, “No strategy, no tracking, no goals, no reward.” When you have chosen social media as your greatest tool to generate business, there are no two ways about it – you’ve got to strategize. Obviously, if there aren’t any specific goals you need to achieve, you won’t make even the least action to get where you should be. The best plans are laid out plans. What are your social media goals? Are they written out? Do you track your progress?

 

  1. Build Relationships and Stop Chasing Leads

 

As a realtor, there comes a time in business when you have to stop and look behind you. Look at your list of followers. Do you know what you will see? This is not a guess. You will find there are (hopefully) people who have interacted with you in some way, but you didn’t respond. Now that is the gateway to your big break. Jonathan Hawkins says, “Stop chasing leads and start focusing on relationships.” While you are busy looking for leads, you are actually using twice as much energy, resources, and life that it would take to get as many friends and family. Family, friends and your sphere make business and life complement each other in the most dramatic and profitable way. How many comments do you respond to? How many of your followers know who you really are, what you love, and that extra thing you can do for them to impact their lives in a personal way? Such are the things that count. Your personal interactions will attract organic business. These are the same people who will bring in referrals, turn into raving fans and they will do it for free!

 

  1. Sometimes You Have to Take a Risk If You Want Great Things to Happen

 

There is tons of information flooding the real estate industry when it comes to social media. So what is the issue? If you haven’t noticed it yet, most? gurus’ and? experts’ have never sold a house before. They have never experienced an escrow canceling when waiting to pay their credit card bill — that is already late. Most talk about theory and leave the practicality of things to those who take risks. Even now, the majority of realtors create a lot of noise on social media, which leaves agents having to find out the info for themselves, spend too much time trying to figure out if something will work or not, and all the stress in between. That’s why Jonathan Hawkins created The Hashtag Agent to take the guesswork out of your social media strategy. He says, “I created The Hashtag Agent to be a single source of information specifically and exclusively to the real estate industry. That is also why the team I work with is in the real estate industry. We’ve been there. We know what works. We want to break through the noise by simplifying the most advanced processes for you to implement immediately.

 

  1. Draw Inspiration from Deep Within

 

I wasn’t surprised when Jonathan said, “If you have to Google what to post on social media, you’re doing it wrong.” You can never underestimate the value of speaking your voice. It has nothing to do with creativity, but instead, it has everything to do with letting your heart speak out. Learn to be authentic and letting it all come out in a way that can inspire someone – not everyone, just one person. When you post something, see it as speaking to one individual, as that is the same way each of your followers or guests read the post. If you are for everyone, you are for no one.

 

  1. You Cannot Do Everything Alone

 

Don’t waste years trying to do everything on your own. When I asked Jonathan Hawkins about his journey, he told me, “It took me four years to get where I am at today on social media, and I’d like to think technology is second nature to me since I was an Army Intelligence officer.” What does that mean, apart from the fact that your time is best spent when you are doing money producing activities? In this instance, selling homes. Rather than trying to figure everything out on your own, you need a coach to cut through the noise, tell you what to do, how to do it and help you leverage social media to grow your business and life. That coach, my friends, is Jonathan Hawkins, and if it isn’t, he will tell you so. He wants to work with people who want to work with him and make a difference, not just for personal accolades, but to make a monumental transformation on how consumers view the real estate professional.

 

We will stop here, but you won’t (we sincerely hope you won’t). Take some time to pore through The Hashtag Agent. For now, we leave you with Jonathan Hawkins’s trademark, “Who You Hire Truly Matters”.™?

Fear is familiar with the unknown. For an entrepreneur, they understand the risk of business, and every single decision change life. Parmarth Mori has dealt with negative anxiety as an IT entrepreneur and gives some tips for eliminating worry as an entrepreneur.

Being an entrepreneur is appealing, but it can also be a difficult battle, especially when you are running the business. When new entrepreneurs are just beginning, they often fret that they are not going to make it in the business world. Well, it is a familiar feeling among entrepreneurs; some may not know how to overcome it. Here are ways to beat fear by Parmarth Mori.

Leading Entrepreneur of Gujarat Parmarth is the founder of the best website designing company in India PM Communications and Top App Development Company in India.

Identify the doubt

It starts with identifying fear once you realize it, you can eliminate it from your life.

Entrepreneurs need to discover what precisely is causing it. So when you are passing from such stage, just sit down and think about it and ask yourself what is causing these feelings.

Is it the fear of product failing, or is it the concern of not being able to keep up with other entrepreneurs? You have to find out the actual reason first so that you can overcome it.

Embrace Defeat

After finding out the reason of fear, the next thing you can do according to Next Gen IT Entrepreneur Parmarth Mori is to accept it. Let’s say, one of the most familiar fears that every entrepreneur has is fear of failing.

Many entrepreneurs in the start are afraid that they won’t make it like others. Well, this is not a line; it is a fact which is shared by many successful entrepreneurs with their business experience.

Take Risk

They are afraid that a product of theirs won’t appeal to people, and they will face a significant loss of time and money.

Well, Parmarth Mori believes that failure sometimes is beneficial than the direct success. Failure teaches you many things in life and makes you perfect in your field. Failure sometimes also improves you as a professional.

Fears can Guide you in your Entrepreneurial Journey

Matthew J Phillips is Disrupting How Coaches are Normally Helped

Published

on

Best Coach who can help you earn in six figures:

We’ve all seen it, the hundreds of courses out there designed to take coaches and consultants to 6 figures in 30 days. The gurus charging 5k for 1-1 to help only to throw you a couple of finding your avatar worksheets. Isn’t it sad that the majority of support out there for struggling coaches, consultants and mentors sucks?

Matthew J Phillips under 20 Entrepreneur:

Matthew J Phillips a 19 years old entrepreneur from the United Kingdom has completely disrupted this. His educational company and Organic Clients Program has transformed the lives of hundreds of coaches for a fraction of the price of these low detail, overpriced courses, and guru mentorship programs.

Earning in big numbers:

As proof, from an investment of $300, coach Adam Smith made $7,000 in 5 days. From an investment of $1,000, Gilberto Morales made $11,000 in under 4 weeks. From an investment of $500, Devansh Sharma made $9,000. You don’t see these types of success stories anywhere else.

Matthew knows how to run programs and content on social media platforms:

We think it’s fair to say Matthew and his company have truly disrupted how coaches are helped. His programs and content across platforms like Facebook & Instagram simply work and it’s not just Adam, Gilberto and Devansh that have seen success. They’re just a few of hundreds.

Learn how to gain more leads:

We asked Matthew how you pick the right person to learn from if you’re looking to start fixing up your problems and get more leads and clients flowing through on a week-to-week basis. He said, your best bet is to not go searching for a big guru. The best help he’s ever had is from highly successful individuals that don’t have their face plastered on every youtube video, podcast and ad. Shop around in quality groups on Facebook.

Nice Human Being:

He also says to avoid anyone who’s only success stories go along the line of this “You should work with Jack, he’s a real nice guy”. Again, this is common amongst those that plaster their face on ads and are not in the slightest bit results-oriented with anyone other than themselves. Also, you want to make an ROI, someone saying that someone is a nice guy shouldn’t give you confidence that you’ll see that ROI. You want to see real success stories.

Last words:

Matthew’s fuel to help those in his industry, the right way, comes from individuals like one of his students who spent $40,000 on courses and gurus with not a client closed in return. After sitting down with Matthew, we believe he is disrupt approved.

Learn How Jess Crow Became The Successful WoodWorker She is Today

Published

on

 Jess Crow Is the founder of Crow Creek Designs, a woman-owned and operated woodworking shop located in Alaska. She is widely known as a leading authority in the artistic woodworking and epoxy industry.

 Crafting A Name For Herself

 Jess has not found it easy to get to the level she is currently at; Jess explains that she has made a name for herself by trying to be being an inspiration and sharing everything she’s learned so far. 

 By striving to be approachable and willing to accept advice from anyone; Jess feels that that has been an essential contributing factor to her growth, both personally and professionally.

 So far, Jess’s designs have caught the eyes of notable individuals like Team Gary Vaynerchuk in New York, LinkedIn, as well as Insider, DIY Network, and many more. She’s well on her way to becoming the most sought after woodworking epoxy artist in her field. Jess also is a highly sought after teacher for those wanting to learn how to grow their business despite facing challenging obstacles and learn how to “build more than furniture.”

 Overcoming Obstacles

 Obstacles are a part of everyday life, and so far, Jess has dealt with more than a handful of them. Some of the challenges she has had to deal with include criticism and rejection.In a lot of Social Media circles, the advice is often “stick with what other people are doing,” and that is how you can succeed. Jess has found that standing out and being different than the crowd is the way to go.

 “It is a lot easier to conform to what is known than it is to break free and become what is will be known.” – Jess Crow

 Below Jess shares how she handled this obstacle;

 “To overcome not only these obstacles but any obstacles that are in my way, I run through all the problems I think I could happen. For me, I function better when I am not surprised. 

 

Some folks may see this as “worrying” whereas I feel it falls more in-line with pre-gaming and planning. If you can think about, the “no’s” you may get; you can fine-tune your approach based on that information.”

 Making A Difference 

In a field that’s dominated by men, Jess sometimes finds that her voice sometimes has to be louder to make an impact. Although this sounds daunting, Jess has taken it as a good thing. She shares that she’s learned so much from her male counterparts and that she feels her ability to accept the different ways men and women think has given her an edge. 

She listens to what everyone has to say, and if she deems it’s worth trying, she takes it and adds it to her knowledge bank to make something new or better.

 “Woodworking is an art unto itself, but when you add unexpected elements by way of color and objects, it is exhilarating.”- Jess.
