Connections, exposure, opinions, information and expanded relationships through our posts and links. I'm blown away how much social media adds $$$ to the bank account and added responsibility to what we post.

Well I work for a real estate school, so we have a different perspective than most here. Since we offer a product that people are typically directly searching for sites like Yelp end up being a big factor. But our challenges are to get the social media engagement we need to turn old students into advocates for new students. The better we do, the more potential students who choose us over a competitor. We rarely convince someone who isn't interested in real estate to give it a shot, we compete for those who want in.

I don't get much of a change from it, but I'm still relatively new to it (less than 2 years).  I get awareness and backlinks.  I have some possible business opportunities from it, but those are several months in the future.
