ISA and Social Media

In April of 2010, the International Society of Appraisers launched social media and networking efforts across Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter to allow members and the appraisal community at large to connect better. Over the last three months, these social media communities have begun to grow. If you have yet to get on board with the society and its social media efforts, it’s certainly not too late!

Facebook

The latest news and events from ISA are available to anyone by following the society on Facebook. The page is often one of the first places to find out about a new webinar or course that is being offered. Facebook offers the opportunity for real-time information to be distributed and for fans of the page to interact with each other through the “wall” and discussion tabs. (Help us break 100 fans by July 12th 2010!)

Linkedin

A group is active on Linkedin that only members of ISA are able to join. By joining the group, you are able to put a logo on your Linkedin profile that indicates you are a member of ISA. The group features a discussion board, jobs board, and excellent networking opportunities for members. Chapters are encouraged to create their own subgroups. (Help the group break 100 members by July 12th, 2010!)

Twitter

ISA tweets! Get quick updates on the happenings at ISA by following the International Society of Appraisers on Twitter. ISA’s twitter name is @ISAppraisers and you can access tweets at www.twitter.com/ISAppraisers.

Using the Internet to connect with your colleagues is great, but remember that potential business is also likely using the Internet to connect with you! Does your appraisal business have a website that is adequate? Are you using Facebook or other social networking sites to market yourself to future customers? Use ISA as a stepping stone to creating your own social media presence. Join us online today!
