Real Social Session
 
The use of social media as a means of making connections and marketing services is growing so rapidly that it is impossible for any one person to stay abreast of all the available apps, platforms, and possibilities. To help members make the most of social media, on October 24, the Orange County Association of REALTORS® presented REAL SOCIAL, a one-day social media conference and expo at the University of California, Irvine.
 
Featured speakers included Katie Wagner, of Katie Wagner Social Media, talking about Social Media Best Practices; Leigh Brown, a highly successful REALTOR® and personal branding expert, whose topic was Making Social Media Work; and Steve Pacinelli, chief marketing officer of BombBomb, explaining How to Use Video to Market.
