I have been on Google+ for more than a year now. It was more fun before it opened up and anyone could join but not that much fun. Google+ really did change my life. Last year at this time business was slow for me. This year it is much better. I believe Google+ is the reason why home sales are up for me from last year. After all it is the only thing about my business that I have changed . . .of course business was much better if 2006 . . but that doesn’t have anything to do with me or with Google+. Heck Pinterest and Instagram were not even invented yet and Facebook was only open to those with a .edu email address. . . and it was a simpler time before the Zillow zestimates caused the housing market to crash. . .I digress again . . please hang in there I do have a point in here somewhere.
Amazingly I have not done much with my Google+ account. Sometimes I “share” but not very often. I know that Google+ is the future and now it is part of the past too. I don’t know most of the 2,300+ people who have me in their circles and probably would not like them if I did because I am not a people person. I do know some of the 197 people in my circles and 16 of them do not have real estate licenses and of those 16 there is only one who doesn’t have a spouse, neighbor or immediate family member who is a real estate agent. I should probably let her know that I am a Realtor but she is already in 1021 real estate agents circles and I think she hangs with me because she sells photography books and classes and can tell that I need all the help I can get.
Google+ really is the perfect place for me. I am not a people person and I rarely have to worry about interacting with anyone while I am on the site.
