1 Simple Way to Get More Engagement on Facebook

Want a simple way to increase engagement with your Facebook posts? Ask your followers a question at the end! Studies show that posts with a question have a 92% higher comment rate than non-question posts. Make sure to ask your question at the end of the post though as that could lead to there being 2x the amount of comments than if you asked your question in the middle of your post!

Nextdoor.com: the Next Big Thing?

At this point, we know that you’re all using Facebook to promote your business, but have you thought about getting on Nextdoor.com? For those who don’t know, Nextdoor is a private social media network that allows you to get more involved in your neighborhood and generate business as a result. 

Nextdoor’s rules about promoting your business on their site are strict. But, are savvy agents generating business using Nextdoor? You bet! And zavvie can help!

If you want to participate in the program, here’s what zavvie can do for you:

  • Create a Nextdoor.com profile if you don’t already have one

  • Customize your profile to achieve optimal exposure to your neighbors

  • Post content on Nextdoor to engage neighbors on a weekly basis

  • Interact with those who engage with your Nextdoor post

  • Boost client acquisition

Still not convinced Nextdoor can create business? Check out this testimonial:

“I inadvertently ended up on Nextdoor only thanks to zavvie and on a Sunday late afternoon someone posted that they wanted a recommendation for a good Realtor to list a $450,000 home. I was the 3rd of over 70 respondents - mostly neighbors slobbering over how much they loved their agent. Monday morning I put a listing packet in the mail and Tuesday I mailed another envelope with a brief CMA and a short personal note.

I got a call that I was among the 3 they had selected to interview for the job…. Today I got a call that they had selected ME!!! This would NEVER have happened without the behind the scenes efforts and I am appreciative of the support this company provides. I’m more motivated than ever to finish ‘plugging in.”

zavvie: The Emerging Real Estate Content Age

FROM NEWSPAPERS TO TECH BLOGS, WE LOVE THAT MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING TO HEAR ABOUT ZAVVIE. HAGEY MEDIA SAT DOWN WITH OUR FOUNDERS, LANE HORNUNG AND STEFAN PETERSON, TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING AND WHERE WE'RE HEADED.

“If SEO and search engine marketing dominated the early real estate digital era, content + digital marketing are quickly becoming the kings of real estate’s maturing internet age.

Former ZipRealty exec Lane Hornung sees this just like he saw the early internet revolution in real estate. Zavvie, which bakes content with digital marketing on neighborhood-focused Facebook pages and WordPress websites, is his answer for the modern age.”

— Paul Hagey, Hagey Media

zavvie success in Castle Rock

WE JUST GOT THIS NOTE FROM A ZAVVIE PRO IN CASTLE ROCK AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH ALL OF YOU! WE LOVE HEARING ZAVVIE SUCCESS STORIES!

“The contact thru a zavvie post led to listing the client’s home (for $525k) and getting one under contract as their buyer agent for $855k. And,
their listing joined two others in my farm that were simultaneously listed, giving me nearly 40% of the existing build listings on the market in Terrain—one half of my farm.

That’s all extremely cool. But, what made me really happy, was that when they called me they announced that they’d already chosen me. They weren’t interviewing other agents. From their exposure to me over time thru platforms like zavvie, they’d already decided I knew what I was talking about and were ready to trust me. THAT, is awesome.”

— Chris Cote, Castle Rock Realtor

zavvie back in the news!

CHECK OUT THE LATEST WRITE-UP OF ZAVVIE IN THE BOULDER DAILY CAMERA! WE’RE SO EXCITED THAT WHAT WE’RE DOING IS BEING NOTICED AND MORE PEOPLE ARE LEARNING ABOUT ZAVVIE!

“zavvie pros, as they’re called, help create and name neighborhood-specific websites and social media pages, which they then populate with content. The hope is that the sites and pages become resources for local homeowners to stay up-to-date on factors impacting their home value and maybe, eventually, tap the agent when it comes time to sell.”
