Feature Spotlight: Integrated Social Media Tools (with How-To Guide)
Nowadays, more and more businesses are finding it crucial to have a solid online marketing strategy. One of the biggest facets of such strategies is social media, as its reach and efficiency has been proven time and time again. myRealPage understands the importance of social media-readiness, which is why every MRP website comes with built-in social media tools that aim to help every realtor with establishing their online presence.
For easy sharing on various social media platforms, there are three main places on every myRealPage website where you can easily add share buttons. Here’s what those are, and how to use them.
Home page and main site template
You can easily add links to your social media channels on your myRealPage website. These links will appear on either the header, the footer, or both the header and footer of your website, depending on the site template you are using.
These links also appear no matter which page of your website a visitor navigates to. This ensures that they will be able to easily find you, and reach out to you on your chosen social media platform.
To do this, simply log in to your Private Office account, and under the “Website” tab, click “Social Media.” You can then start adding the relevant links.
By filling in these details, links to your social media accounts are also automatically added to your Contact Page, as seen below.
Being able to share your listings is, of course, very important! So make sure this feature is turned on for your website. You can do this by going to your “Listings” tab in Private Office, and going to the “Options and Settings” section. From there, click on “Show/Hide Options,” and make sure that the social sharing option is set to “Yes.”
After selecting this and publishing your changes, options to share your listing on sites such as Facebook and Twitter should now be available.
You’ve taken the time to write and publish some nice blog posts, with original, thoughtful content, so it just makes sense to make sure that everybody gets to see it! Promote your blog posts on social media, and make sure that it’s easy to share.
Activate this feature for your myRealPage site’s Blog section by going to the “Website” tab in Private Office, clicking on “All Web Pages,” and opening the Page Editor for your blog.
Once the Page Editor is open, click the green “Edit This” weblet button, and a pop-up will appear. Click on the “Social” tab, and set all the dropdowns to “Yes.”
Once you’ve saved your work, check your myRealPage blog. Each blog post should now have social media sharing options available!
