How to Use Social Media – Panel Disucssion

Geared to Real Estate Industry Professionals.

Social Media Panel - Network

It's pretty clear that a lot of Real Estate Professionals are struggling with the new social media wave that has overtaken many forms of online communication. Many people check their Facebook pages more often than their email these days. And Twitter has become the most effective customer service interface for many companies. If agents and brokerages are going to appeal to and attract new clients they are going to have to embrace these technologies or learn to accept that they are part an increasingly limited sphere of humanity.

The panelists include some of the area's better known social media maven's and should be quite insightful.

Dan Mc Comb, co-founder of, named Seattle's top 25 most innovative entrepreneurs by the Seattle Business Monthly, will speak on social and business networking, including Facebook and Twitter.

Denise Seavitt, CEO of Seavitt Real Estate, will discuss web marketing and database management.

Rich Jacobson, Community Manager of Activerain, will cover blogging, localism and community building.

This seminar is being moderated by Claudia Wicks of Real Estate Base Camp. Her background includes developing nationally acclaimed training programs for Coldwell Banker and John L. Scott and being the National Director of Training and Real Estate Content for HouseValues.
