The new blog is part of Beacham & Company’s ever-increasing emphasis on social media in the marketing of real estate. Beacham now has two members of its marketing team dedicated to social media and the firm was recently named the top company in America for New Media Marketing by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. The company’s Facebook page has 1,710 “likes,” more than any other Atlanta real estate company.
Beacham’s emphasis on social media is both good for sellers who receive enhanced exposure for their listings and good for Beacham agents who have another vehicle to promote their business. Beacham’s marketing department meets with agents to perform social media assessments and can recommend or perform social media functions on behalf of agents.
“We have some agents who are generating most of their business from social media,” said Blayne Beacham, Director of Creative Services for Beacham & Company, and author of This Photographer’s Life, one of the most visited real estate blogs in the United States. “There are a variety of factors that affect an agent’s ability to convert social media activity to sales. We work one-on-one with agents to help them use social media in a way that will be productive and not take time away from selling.”
