“My client would never do that…”
“That Web 2.0 stuff is just for kids.”
“My clients don’t ________ (fill in the blank)”
Have you ever said that? I hear it all the time as I travel about doing training classes. Every time I hear it, I wonder if I am hearing fear or defiance. The fear of something new or defiance of change. Whatever the motivator is, what I hear from those statements is someone whose days as an effective, productive business person are numbered and who doesn’t know it.
It’s time to embrace the new social media and let the world know that you are doing so. We all like to do business with those who are like ourselves, don’t we? Why not sign up for one or more of the social media sites, fill in a profile and then let people know about it? You might be just what someone on those sites is looking to find. Imagine their relief when they find a talented professional on a social media site…
Here is an easy way to tell the world that you are involved with new media AND also to get a cool email signature. Just go to http://www.retaggr.com and sign up. It’s FREE and it’s easy to do.
Here is my business card created with retaggr.
I do have my real estate credentials listed, but I also have my LinkedIn and FaceBook credentials as well as links to my blog, my portal page on PacUnion.com as well as links to my ePro and PRI bio pages. Everything that you need to know is right there in one place! And, anyone who is using LinkedIn or FaceBook knows what those logos mean and know what to do with them. Lest you think that they are the only two social sites available on retaggr, rest easy as they have logos for 136 different social media sites. You can also add your picture if you wish. It’s a great tool for anyone looking to connect with new people online, and it also offers you a way to have a nice email signature as well.
I’ll sign off with the email signature file that I created with retaggr. By the way, they also have easy to follow directions for you to follow to get the email signature into your email program so that it shows up every time you start a new email or reply to an email sent to you.
