google places for real estate – post 3 of 31

marketing in a social age is devoting 31 posts this month to social and digital media and the real estate industry.

I’m only 3 posts in and I’m getting the feeling that this is going to be harder than I thought.  I want to make sure that what I blog about over the next little while helps you. So if you, as someone who is in the real estate industry, have a question about how you can use digital and social media tools, please comment below.

Google Places:

Make sure you own your piece of real estate on Google.  And this means creating a profile for yourself on Google Places.  (You’ll see by clicking on the link that when you enter my domain name in Google Maps that you see where my office is located.)

A Note About Google Places:

You will need a Gmail account to use Google Places.  So if you do go ahead and create your profile.  If not, what are you waiting for?

Back to Google Places:

Ok. Here’s a couple of really neat videos made by Google on the cool features of Google Places.
