With "Twitter for Real Estate" Michael McClure (@ProfessionalOne) has created THE introductory Twitter course for pros in the real estate industry & beyond. The highlight for me is "Section 6 - Philosophy & Mindset," where Michael clearly demonstrates his expertise on the subject of "Why?" This course is essential for the modern real estate professional.
Michael McClure has written what is easily the most thorough and complete course on Twitter for real estate agents (or any business for that matter) that I have ever seen. Covering virtually every single topic that an agent can use, from beginning to end, this course is a 'must view' for anyone wanting to understand how Twitter can increase your business. Personally, I've been using Twitter successfully for 5 yrs for my real estate business and, frankly, I learned a TON here. Worth every cent!
"Twitter for Real Estate" is a great beginner's course - and may surprise current Twitter users with tips and tricks and strategy segments that will enhance their experience. Kudos for a professionally constructed and completed course that is sure to educate, inform and entertain. Those who have a proclivity toward social media and real estate will surely benefit from this course. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, Michael McClure! Gina Kay Landis, Realtor @ginakayRE
