Frank Montro – An Expert in Facebook Engagement

We’ve all heard those jokes about millennials being lazy and attached to social media, but in reality, social media is more than just memes and “good dog” videos. When used for business, social media can have an almost immediate and powerful impact on a customer base. Because social media, such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, is built on connecting people, the possibilities are endless when it comes to targeting an audience or finding new business, but you have to know the secret: engagement. And lots of it.

Frank Montro, of Frank Montro Homes and an agent with Keller Williams Preferred is an expert when it comes to posting regularly on Facebook and creating a truly unique experience for customers or potential buyers of his beautifully rehabbed homes. Think of social media as a way of marketing your business by word of mouth. Only in this case, word of mouth is substituted with comments, likes, and positive posting. In the world of social media a like or share is equivalent to an endorsement, unless stated otherwise. Check out how Frank’s constant positive engagement helps him connect his business with people around him!

 

When it comes to the Facebook, Frank knows all, not to mention he’s king of realty on the Southside. Let him show you your new home today!

Why you should use Marki as your Real Estate Training Expert

Social media has not only become a place of socialization, baby pictures and self-made marketing, but it is now what some consider to be the most powerful tool in connection people and communities across the world.

Marki Lemons-Ryhal has figured out how to transform these platforms where we share so much about our lives into a business connection solution. Keep reading to hear what she has to say!

From markilemons.com

With over 25 years of marketing experience, Marki Lemons-Ryhal has established herself as an award-winning Social Media Speaker and Course Author.  In a market where change is the only constant factor, Marki uses her dynamic, professional attitude and vast experience to be one of the top speakers in the country relying on content from one of the several real estate continuing education classes she has authored.

Marki is serious about education! She holds a MBA degree from Saint Xavier University and has over 50 certifications, designations, and licenses in social media and real estate. She travels the country teaching social media courses for the National Association REALTORS®, REBAC, ASI and others.  Her 100,000 plus students consistently rank her 5 out of 5 as an instructor due to her knowledge and entertaining training style.

“At the tender of age of 10 I started my first business a snowball stand in front of one of our restaurants. By the time I was 18 I was running the day to day operations of our concession business where we were pioneers in the Chicago Food Truck Business and generating up to 15k daily at events like the Chicago Blues, Jazz and Gospel Fest. I’ve personally prepared the food for Aretha Franklin.

Fast forward to 2003 when I opened my first real estate company and by 2004 I was in the top 10% of REALTORS® in Chicago. Within three years I was selected to serve on the Board of Directors for the 3rd largest real estate board in the country. 2006 was also the year I became a Licensed Real Estate Instructor and in 2009 I was speaker for the National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo. I was elated by the opportunity and the following year I was the youngest woman to be named Real Estate Educator of the Year in 2010.

While on maternity leave I decided you Google my name and my name came up less than 10 times. I was horrified because in my hand I was holding a report from the National Association of REALTORS® that stated more and more buyers were coming to the internet first and 67% would do business with the first licensee they came in contact with. I instantly became committed to using social media as a way to connect and engage with customers and past clients.

Over the past ten years I have written fifteen classes that are approved for continuing education and four of those classes are focused on social media and technology. To date I have trained over 100,000 individuals.”
