Aaron McMahon: How To Stand Out And Cut Through The Noise On Social Media

Show Notes

The conversation around social media has changed dramatically. Most real estate professionals have stopped asking “should we be on social media?” and now want to know: “How do we do it well?”

In Australia, there are 14 million monthly active Facebook accounts, 3.6 million LinkedIn profiles and 5 million Instagram accounts. With numbers like this, it’s easy to want to dive in and start telling people why they should list their property with you.

The majority of active social media users check their social media channels first thing in the morning but it’s certainly not to see what their local real estate agent has posted. They’re on social media to be entertained, keep up to date with family and friends, and things they care about. The challenge for real estate agents is how to – as a business – stand out among someone’s family and friends.

Aaron McMahon is the founder of Slim Digital, a marketing consultancy that concentrates on the industries of real estate, education, health, defence and sport. He believes that social media in real estate is simple – just be social.

In this episode of Real Estate Pros, Aaron shares his tips for building client relationships online and how to create content that your community actually wants to receive.
