Social media can be a great tool for marketing yourself as a real estate expert ... but what if no one is seeing your posts?

A Yahoo Tech video summarizes findings from recent studies about best practices to increase your online audience. Here’s what the studies say:

  • Facebook posts that have 40 or fewer characters get more attention.
  • Sharing articles or content with your LinkedIn network at least once a week increases by 10 times your likelihood of being contacted for a new business opportunity.
  • On Twitter, posts kept to 100 characters max see 17% more retweets, and tweets with images are shared 94% more.
  • Instagram images that are heavily textured (translation: more visually interesting) receive 79% more likes, and photos in which the dominant color is blue get 24% more likes.
