Are You Working Your Linked In Contacts? You'd be surprised at whom you're connected with!

Ok Gang,

I listened to the Blog Radio on 12/18 and even punched in to ask Jesse a question about signing up with all the Asset Management Companies. After listening to the show, I took Jesse's advice about utilizing Linked In and Facebook to our advantage.

I was already doing something similar, which is how I found this group. Anyway, I typed in the name of a Mortgage Servicing Company that I've done Short Sales through. I proceeded to pull up their Linked In Employees and low and behold, I see two employees,(one an Asset Manager the other an REO Attorney), that I am connected to by the second degree. It seems that one of my good friends is the first connection with one person and the other person is connected to me by a group that I joined on Linked In.

So naturally, I email these two contacts by using the "Request and Introduction" Method. I included an attention grabbing subject line, and introduced myself and informed them how we were connected. I proceeded to let them know that I am a member of Realty Pilot, the most innovative BPO/REO Traffic Controller, and that it is free to Mortgage Companies/Mortgage Servicing Companies Asset Managers.

I then explain to them how they can be of assistance in helping me connect with some of the Asset Managers in their organization and introduce them to Realty Pilot and my REO Services.

After I completed the mesage, I clicked on the "Notify Friend Button, so I could send "1st connected firend" a courtesy notice stating that I contacted one of her linked in connections.

I know what they say about the Six degrees of Separation, and it seems that it can definitely be beneficial if you work it right.

It's going to be interesting to see the type of results that we will get from this.

Wow Billie that's wonderful. I think this forum is the greatest in getting us to be more creative in approaching Asset Managers.

Good advise, I missed Jessie's blog radio, but last week I emailed an AM I found on LinkedIn-no connections- Just on a whim, thinking "why not?" It was my very good fortune that I got a response. The AM needed a quick occupancy check & my thoughts on value range (no bpo) for a property 10 minutes from my office.I got the info back quickly so now she put my name on the file & I'll be listing it in January.
