Leading with Social Media

Prospecting doesn’t have to be difficult! Generating leads can be fun, especially if you utilize social media. Globally, the average time a person spends per day on social media is 2 hours and 24 minutes* – and that’s plenty of time for you to personalize your business.

  • KEEP IT BALANCED: Your social media pages should be a balance of life, interests, and real estate. Show them listings, behind-the-scenes, and hobbies!
  • HIT REPLY: Engage, engage, engage! Don’t let a comment or message go unnoticed. Ask your followers questions that will get them to interact with your page.
  • HIGHLIGHT REVIEWS: Thank previous clients and showcase your achievements by highlighting your reviews! Design a story reel that displays your reviews that were submitted through Zillow, Google, Yelp, etc.!

The Season of Thanks

Fall is the season of change and the season of thanks. Now, more than ever, is the time to reflect and be appreciative of all the wonderful communities our branches and employees call home. We couldn’t be more thankful of the confidence you place in us by sending your business throughout the year.

This past October, we were able to hold our 9th annual food drive, ‘Closing the Hunger Gap.’ We’re fortunate enough to add on to our collection of 217,352 pounds of food and $202,109.65! Thank you to all who participated and helped us move closer to a world without hunger!

Ready, Set, Sanitize – & Donate!

Alliance Title’s 25 locations in Idaho, Montana, and Washington strive to make your closing process smooth and easy. Each branch is staffed with friendly and experienced professionals who pride themselves on providing you with a safe, socially-distanced and personalized transaction while also doing their part to support the local community.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to help our communities. This October, Alliance Title is hosting the 9th annual ‘Closing the Hunger Gap’ food drive campaign and partnering with local food banks to collect nonperishable food and monetary donations to help end hunger in the communities we serve.

With our convenient locations, you’re never too far from safe, exceptional service or a socially-distanced donation site!
