Instagram is GREAT --- for social media "gurus" sucking cash straight from the pockets of unsuspecting real estate agents

 

It's like every other social media platform not called facebook - flash in the pan that could potentially make a few people money, but will do nothing but waste teh time of most people

I have and think there is a LOT of potential in the ability to post a picture and description and get interest in a property or neighborhood.

Instagram is a great medium. I was actually surprised how many baby boomers are on Instagram. We get inquiries on our listings from showcasing our listings and also for my other companies. 

Pictures speak 1,000 words. It is a great way to showcase listings, especially luxury listings. Instagram is the #1 branding platform for high end brands. They resonate well and they do attribute results to their brand marketing on Instagram. It is time agents take heed to what your avatar is relating to on different platforms. Katerina

Not I, unless you count how many dating scam profiles like your profile.  Just this morning I got followed by someone named "Looking for a man to love tonight"  I kid you not.

Use it independently but, nothing from it.  I enjoy looking at everyone's photos but, MOST people port their Instagram to their FB page where deeper conversations take place - and the audience is much larger and more active!

It's a great way to put your content out there-but Instagram totally confuses me I have a lot of followers, I don't really know who they are and I don't really know how to use instagram.  If I have some downtime I'd like to check into it more to see if it would work better for me.

Nope - fly by night site- time sink, how do you all have time to do these social media sites?

I've never understood that - I do this for a living and work at it all day for my clients, but don't you all have real estate to sell? Buyers and sellers leads to get?
