NO! I was successful due to my local activity Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 I did have an Internet presence for sure but had there been no www I would have done just as well. My advice to new agents is forget the Internet web and spend your time casting your own web over your community by getting out there, being active and being an asset to others.

I have sold real estate on my FB page without paying for their ads. Also, I have paid for their ads (waste of money) and found that most clicks/views were from people in other countries I never heard of...most likely were hired by FB to participate. Am willing to try new things but not sink a lot of money into nothingness to benefit only the company making unkept promises.

Results would be the determiner. In today's market with inventory so low and demand so high there's not much advertising needed outside of MLS to sell a home.

I allready know what else works but if you feel FB is the only advertising a real estate agent needs to do & that paid ads on FB will outweigh any other venue then I won't try & sway you.

If you did it Annette - I mean you started the marketing company - I would try it for $50/mo for 6 months. I trust you to come up with something that works.

Of course - if I knew it was effective and had good ROI. $50 seems like such a small amount to achieve a much larger return.

Yes there is a company that will do that for you with FB ads. It is $39 & they basically see how ads are working, words, pics & then discuss all the time. Goal is to have optimum ads with more than just AB testing.

Annette,

What works in one area does not in another.  Our small town of Santa Barbara and the little towns like ours that surround it, are a perfect example.  Different people require different marketing.  A

Given FB's political views, lack of privacy (transcribing video chats), and their actions to bring down the United States of America's society and political system, I don't care how much business I'm losing there is no way they're getting even one penny from me!
