Velma Medina, a Realtor friend, recently sent this email out to her sphere of influence and kindly gave me permission to share. I think this is an excellent idea and loved the fun spin she put on the whole social media tornado we all seem to be in.
Subject: I joined the revolution..
As I look back on the 10 years that I have been in Real Estate I can’t believe how far technology has come and how much easier and painful it has made my life. When I started I had a flip phone that made calls and an old computer that sent emails, cut copy and paste was a concept I was just grasping, and texting was a foreign concept to me.
10 years later I have a phone that not only makes calls, but it sends text messages, I can make appointments for me and other people. Automatically backs up my contacts online, get movie times, temperatures, and if I ever sit still long enough I can even load music on it so I can listen to my favorite tunes. Another little feature, I can update my Facebook
I have been using my Twitter
If you are like Velma and jumping off that social bridge.... consider sending something like this out to your database. It's a great way to announce what you are doing!
