Twitter is all the rage in social media.Â But how can you get business from Twitter when youâ€™re restricted to 140 characters?Â Â Simple.Â Â Use my AKS (Anyone Know Search) Method.Â
Hereâ€™s how it works:
Go to Search.Twitter.com and type this in the search box:Â anyone know a realtor in [fill in your city or town]
Here’s an example:Â
Check the results.Â Â If youâ€™re lucky, youâ€™ll find a real estate need (the wordÂ leadÂ has been taken to the place where they keep bad words, like “used car”).
Now, send a tweet reply to this person and offer your help.Â Since you are fellow Twitterers, you share something in common, making it more likely the person will talk to you.Â Â Try it. (And send me my 25% referral fee in small bills.)
But there’s more to the AKS strategy.
Get the RSS feed for this Twitter search inquiry and you will get an email every time someone tweets they are looking for a real estate agent in your city or town (or wherever the heck you are).
