As many of you know establishing new relationships via Twitter can bring you the potential for future business.
This is one of the benefits of social networks and becoming connected online. We all get requests daily via our accounts to be contacts, friends, to follow, and so forth.
It's great that all of us in the Real Estate industry can use Twitter as a tool to keep in touch but have you ever wondered how you can make connections with those that are local to you? I am going to show you how. There is a site called Twellowhood that allows you to easliy find LOCAL contacts for your Twitter account. Below is a screen shot of a map at the Twellowhood site.
Once you are at the map you will put your mouse over the desired state and click.
This will take you to a drop down list of all the towns in your state that have Twitter members.
Looking at the screen shot below you can see that it tells you how many members there are in each town. By clicking on a specific town you will then be brought to another screen that will show you all the members that live in that town.
From this you will then be able to click the follow button should you desire to become contacts.
Screen shot below of Hopkinton. There happens to be 7 other members in my home town.
I am the 1st of the list. You can follow me @ Massrealty.
Twellow is also a directory that can be used to find people in any industry. For example is you go to the categories tab on the main page and scroll down to Real Estate you will see a list of all the Realtors who are in the directory and using Twitter. You will notice quite a few familiar Active Rain members. If you are not in the directory I would suggest you add yourself.
The Twellow directory is part of Web Pro News which is an outstanding site to learn more about social networking.
