Real estate tech review: SocialMadeSimple

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

A consistent challenge with using social networks to market is managing the number of profiles, posts and so on. Logging in and checking for messages on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and your own blog takes up time and is annoying.

A number of different software platforms have emerged to deal with this. They’re called "social media dashboards" and you might even be using one now.

SocialMadeSimple is a social dashboard that differs a bit from some of the others, like Hootsuite, because it is focused on helping you locate and distribute real estate content and has tools to help you develop a specific plan for using social media to publish that content.

The basics

SocialMadeSimple connects to the "big three" social networking sites: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Also, you can connect a blog to the service.
