The two greatest mistakes most Realtors and Agents make on Social Media and the Simple fix. 

Why it's important to always bring value to social media and stop talking about how great you are.

Learn how you can crush it on Facebook with a simple cell phone and build a targeted campaign in minutes.

Enjoy Geoff Hughes, social media and marketing expert, sharing how to build a loyal following and how to use your social media platform of choice to connect with your audience and generate business.

It doesn't matter how much you amass in business, the real value and most important asset is your reputation. If you have a great one, it builds trust and inspires and it can bring success both in your career and personal life. If long term success is important to you, it's important to understand the value it can bring and to guard your reputation because what others think can make or break us. 

It can take a lifetime to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. Our reputations are extremely fragile and can break easily especially if they are ignored. Today, with social media, there is added complexity to reputation management and trigger reactions can ruin you faster than it takes to read this sentence. You can say anything you want, at anytime, from anywhere. And while it is an amazing tool to have, it can be flipped on its head quickly. 

Cell phone videos are capturing more and more and online detectives are finding people's names, workplaces, and outing them for bad behavior. Joining a rant on Facebook might end up costing you friends, business, and careers. Emotions can take over quickly and you are now being judged by the entire world with just a click of a button. 

Geoff Hughes - "My vision is helping people identify their passion and implement it in their lives."

Jason Arcuri – EXP agent, 4 years in the business, 10 million plus producer.

This episode is a discussion on working harder vs working smarter.

Jason and I debate and try to debunk the old philosophy of working harder always wins.


How to Stay Relevant

I first became interested in real estate in 2006. By the end of the year, I had my first multifamily home under contract. Since then, I have purchased and sold many properties and gained invaluable firsthand knowledge of what goes into purchasing a property. The happiness, the frustration, and the nervousness of making such a large financial purchase or sale are just a few things that a buyer/seller will be experiencing.

Johnathan Fanning – Leadership Expert, author of three books and leadership coach over 15 years. Who are you becoming?

“The biggest challenge for a leader is when they can value both results and relationships the same.” Matt Teter

People, are asking three questions about you:

1. Can I trust you?
2. Does this person care?
3. Can this person help me? 

Leadership is built on trust. 

Jonathan’s Steps for Leadership 

  • Be authentic 
  • Listen
  • Admit your weaknesses 
  • Focus on building trust first
  • Value both results and people 
  • Learn to ask great questions 


Lessons from Jonathan’s life:

Ever been hit in the head with a frying pan? More than once? Perhaps found yourself hanging off of a 106 foot bridge? Had 4 cars totaled by others while you were inside?

Stood in Assisi, Italy, and decided that the best thing you could possibly do next in life is quit the job that your whole family thinks defines you? Heard your grandparents’ entire lives summed up by a single sentence at their funerals and thought, Will my life turn into a single sentence, too?”

Wondered what this 1 life is really all about?

Been totally inspired by a legend from history and thought, “I should do something like that” or “I should BECOME more like that person”?

Built a career, only to have a constant feeling of “There’s got to be more to my life than this” and “Perhaps I’ve been climbing a ladder that’s leaning on the wrong wall”?

Evaluated climbing down from that same ladder, moving it to a different wall, and starting the climb all over again? Started a business, built that business, become that business, and realize that it was the wrong business for you?

Tom Hopkins - Real Estate Trainer 

Sales Trainer at Tom Hopkins International, Inc. Sales Trainer and author of many sales books including How to Master the Art of Selling. 

Author of over 19 Books including Mastering the Art of Selling Real Estate.

"Your income is in direct proportion to what you are saying" Tom

Steps to Success in Overcoming Objections 

  • Mirror and match
  • Stall objections 
  • Do not say "NO" to objections 
  • Become an actor or actress 
  • Study vocabulary 
  • Find mentors
  • Become a student of selling


About Tom Hopkins:

Tom Hopkins wasn’t born to wealth and privilege. He was a mediocre student and began his work life in construction carrying steel. At the age of 19, he was married with a child on the way and trying to find a better way to support his young family.

Since he wasn’t afraid of meeting new people and was known to be somewhat talkative someone suggested he try selling. After looking around at the people who were dressed well and driving new cars, he decided on the field of real estate.

At the time, real estate was considered an old man’s profession. There weren’t many women in the field and certainly no teenagers. It took Tom several tries to pass his licensing exam, but he eventually succeeded.

The next hurdle was to find someone to hire him. Visiting real estate offices around town on his way home from his construction job, Tom quickly learned the negative impact of the first impressions he was making.
