RealtySocialQ Measures New Media Skills & Savvy With Trackable Results

A new, objective online evaluation of a real estate agent's use of websites, blogs, syndication, videos, social media, and reputation/risk management. Agents are assigned a social media 'score' and provided with specific suggestions for improvement.
Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Bellingham (WA) and Tucson (AZ), October 27, 2011 - Denise Lones of The Lones Group, in association with Frances Flynn Thorsen, has launched RealtySocialQ, the first comprehensive social media assessment tool to gauge a real estate agent's social media and blogging proficiency. The tool is available to members of the No Blogger Left Behind blog coaching program taught by Lones and Thorsen, and also to members of Lones' exclusive EVOLVE coaching program, and all free and paid members of Lones' Club Zebra program.

"How is technology impacting your business? Are you on the cutting edge or are you stuck in the past? We ask our clients those questions because they are always looking for ways to bring their business to the next level," said Lones. "Our new RealtySocialQ evaluation provides an objective review of the current state of your technology relative to your business. We'll look at an agent's use of websites, blogs, hardware, software, syndication, videos, networking, and social media, as well as reputation and risk management. Based on the information the agent provides, RealtySocialQ will determine a social media 'score' and provide the agent with concrete action items - specific suggestions for actions that can translate into success."

"I'm delighted to work with The Lones Group to develop RealtySocialQ," said Thorsen. "I've working for years with a combination of online forms and manual assessment tools to help clients measure tech and networking expertise. Those systems are time consuming and limited the number of clients I could help at any one time."

"The Lones Group has a very impressive battery of real estate business assessment tools," Thorsen added. "A social media assessment tool is a perfect fit. This is the first comprehensive social media assessment tool in the real estate industry, with technology, networking, blogging, and risk metrics."

Lones and Thorsen recently re-launched a new and vastly updated No Blogger Left Behind blog coaching program for real estate agents and brokers, featuring eight learning modules, weekly Q&A sessions, and more than 60 video tutorials for new and advanced WordPress bloggers.

Thorsen and Lones bring a combined 40+ years of real estate experience to the table. They are co-founders of the Government Home Sale Professional™ (GHSP™) course for HUD Homes training. Both are recognized experts in their fields.
