Good morning Melissa, I use all that you mentioned except Google+, but also use Wordpress, the Patch and my website. I blog on all of them.

I am using all of those + Pinterest, but I can't say it's getting me much business.  I do get biz from FB groups from my customers recommending me.  That's what has worked the best, but it's organic and I can't control it.

In my brokerage, agents also use YouTube. And then with Instagram, you can connect multiple different social media sites to post to from one app.

Melissa,

Personally, Linked In has been the best.  Over the 8 years, the amount of business it generated is negligible...nothing from all the others, a bit from Active Rain.  The best generator of biz has been face to face.  You have to have a door knocking strategy (not necessarily knocking on doors) that will make you the big bucks.  Social media is just to be seen.  A

It depends on who your audience is. What platforms is your avatar on? You should be where your audience is. Is your niche divorce attorneys who you want to get referrals from? The best place to network with them is going to be on LinkedIn. But if your avatar is a female aged 35 who makes over $120K annual salary and has kids- you better be on Pinterest. If you are working wtih generation x -be on snapchat. 

Now that was for relationship building and getting business. Now for SEO, that is a different story... you need to be in as many places as you can possibly figure out a way to be in so that you are sending out signals to search engines that you are relative and an authority in your niche.

Google+ first and foremost.....I also use facebook and belong to many closed groups for real estate ...  Nestor & Katerina Gasset (katerina) offers a Listing Experts Academy....and after joining that you have many closed group platforms available to you....and the information is unbelievable....I've been in the business 37 years, and I've always been the top listing agent no matter where I worked, but I'm learning more every day with that guidance.... it's worth the money.... invest in YOU and you'll earn it back 100 fold....

At some point, enough, is enough and you have to limit social media activities and get in front of clients. You hit the key sites, and we have NEVER received a lead from social media activity.
