Why Agents Should Create A ‘Private’ Company Twitter Account

Twitter is one of the most powerful marketing tools that a real estate agent can use, and yet it’s surprising to see that there are still only a very small percentage of real estate agents actually using Twitter.

There are lots of ways that Twitter  can help you in the day-to-day running of a real estate agency, but one way is by creating a Private Twitter account.

And the great news is that establishing a ‘Private’ Twitter account takes only a couple of minutes to create & it’s Free.

Twitter is a micro-blogging platform that allows you & your team to post messages up onto the web in real time but with a ‘Private’ account you can decide who sees your tweets.

Rather than sending out a bulk text message to your team, you could send out a Tweet that is broadcast out to anyone who has access to your Private Twitter account.

It could become an important part of your messaging system. You can also upload photos or videos and tweet them privately through the account to any member of your team.


You could also use it for a secured Brain Storming session where you can have people tweeting their thoughts or ideas in real time and all the data from this collection of thoughts remains up their on your ‘Private’ Twitter account to recall whenever you need it.

It will also provide a way that people can tweet their thoughts & ideas well after the Brain Storming session.

All you need to do is decide on a name for the Brain Storming session, say VPAtips. Then insert a #hashtag in front of the tweets, to make them #VPAtips & then all of your tweets will be grouped together & can be found very easily on Twitter in the future.

To give you an example of how a ‘Private’ Twitter account works I currently run a couple of ‘Private’ Twitter accounts.

One for the attendees of my Workshops/Seminars & the other one is an account based around a marketing strategy that I’ve developed called ‘The Area Monopoly Strategy’.

As a part of launching this concept I decided to create a ‘Private & Strictly Real Estate Agent Only’ Twitter account.

I did this because there are some parts of this strategy that I needed to be able to share with agents exclusively & weren’t for public viewing.

Now, if you are an agent & you’d like to join in then you are most welcome to send through a request for access. This is just a live example of how one of these ‘Private’ Twitter accounts works for me.

Here’s how it works.

To join in go to and send me a request as seen in the picture below. Then once I’ve confirmed that you’re a real estate agent I’ll manually go in & authorise your access to the account.

Area Monopoly - Twitter Account

Note: To see the Send Request button in the image above you must be logged into your Twitter account.

Now if you don’t have a Twitter account, then this may provide you with a good excuse for why you should go to & register your Free Twitter account right now.

Once I have approved your request you don’t have to wait for me to send a Tweet. You will be able to go in & read all the previous Tweets that have been sent out via that ‘Private’ Area Monopoly Twitter Account.

I recommend you go into Twitter & set up a ‘Private’ account for your company & give it a go. You’ll be amazed at how simple & effective it can be.

The Password To Help You Achieve Your Goals

I don’t know if you find the same thing, but nowadays, we seem to have so many logins & passwords that we have to remember, so to help you, here’s a simple concept that can not only help you to remember your passwords but it can help you to achieve your goals at the same time.

Everyday there seems to be one time or another where we need to provide a password or PIN number to gain access to an account, chat with friends on Facebook or even hire a video.

Remembering these passwords can sometimes drive you crazy & can become very frustrating.

Over the past few years I’ve found a simple way that I can choose a password that is easy to remember & it’s helped me to succeed at the same time.

Here’s a video explaining the simple concept…

As an example of how this could work for you: Let’s say that you’re planning an overseas holiday to Fiji & you wanted to go in say February next year, then using this strategy you could create passwords like fiji0210 or fiji1002 to help you stay on track.

Most success trainers will agree that goals must have a deadline attached to them & short term goals should be reviewed daily.

Key To Success

Whatever you set as your goal, this simple strategy will provide you with a daily reminder of your goal & it will help you to stay on track.

3 Simple Goal Setting Steps
1. Establish a short term goal & write it down.
2. Set a deadline for achieving the goal.
3. Create a password to constantly remind you of your goal.

I know this works & I hope it helps you to achieve your goals too.
