Windermere Real Estate and Katie Lance have come together to provide Windermere agents with the information and resources they need to master social media via Katie’s nationally recognized #GetSocialSmart Academy. Through a combination of training videos, live webinars, course materials, and a 24/7 online on-demand library, agents will gain and enhance the skills needed to build relationships online utilizing social media.
Because of this exclusive partnership with Katie Lance, Windermere agents have access to discounted membership pricing for the #GetSocialSmart Academy.
"Being a real estate agent today isn’t an easy job. You wear many hats. One of the hats that needs to be worn more frequently is your Social Media hat. When I say Social Media I’m not talking just about Facebook. Social media is vast, much more than FB alone. I have always been one to want to work smarter rather than harder. Having an effective social media strategy isn’t easy but if you have the right knowledge and education it can be done in little time and be very effective in giving value to your customer base. Katie Lance is someone whom I respect and have learned a lot from on how to build a social media strategy that attracts and helps to enhance current relationships with my sphere. Get Social Smart Academy is rich with training on how to better leverage social media and create a weekly top of mind awareness strategy that can give you an amazing return on your investment. We are so excited that Katie is willing to share her knowledge with our Windermere family. You owe it to yourself to take a look at what Katie has to offer when it comes to better understanding Social Media above and beyond just Facebook. Sometimes I like to say we don’t know what we don’t know. Give her an opportunity to share her knowledge and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed."

Do you struggle to keep up with social media? You love your job - you couldn’t dream of doing anything other than sell real estate. Let’s face it - you are really good at what you do. In fact you are probably in the top 20-30% of agents in your office (or, actively working toward joining this group soon!)
You also really, really care about your clients.
You are the type of agent that wouldn’t miss a closing. You are the type of agent that always drops the keys off to your clients - because they are more than a transaction, and so much more than a ‘deal.’ They are a family who are about to create a lifetime of new memories in their new home and you understand this sacred space.
Every home and every client of yours has a story.
It’s a story about a family that just lost their grandparents and the kids and grandkids have to clean out the home they have known for decades and put it up for sale. It’s a story about a husband and wife whose kids have left the nest and the home that was once perfect for a family with teenagers now seems big and empty and they are ready to downsize. It’s a story about the young couple with two kids, who had to go through a short sale a few years back and now they are getting back into the market and they are scared - just like first-time homeowners all over again.
Those stories above? Those are my stories. Those are my stories about my grandparents, about my parents, and about my husband and I.
You know every client’s story and you understand that real estate is a personal business for a lot of people.
This is why I love social media when it comes to real estate. Social media, when done right is the perfect medium for agents to celebrate, honor and keep in touch with the families they serve.
So, how is business for you? I would imagine, business is good, maybe even really good. But as much as business is good, as much as the referrals always come, there is the nagging feeling that you could be doing something better - especially when it comes to what you are doing online.
You love the idea of using social media to grow your business and to better keep in touch with your clients…if only there were more hours in the day and if only you could really figure out what the heck you were supposed to do!
HAVE YOU EVER SAID ANYTHING LIKE THIS?
I wish I had the time to set aside to plan out my social media...
I struggle with keeping up with all the new stuff...
I feel like I’m wasting time with social media...
Did Facebook change again? Why is no one seeing my posts?
I don't understand how it all works so it's really frustrating. It makes me afraid of doing and it's hurting my career big time.
I struggle with balancing sharing in the moment on social, while also being present and committed to the moment IRL.
The number one challenge when it comes to social media from real estate agents just like you is that it takes too much time! Whether it’s the time it takes to create great content, the time it takes to keep up with all of the different platforms and constant changes, or the time that feels like it’s being wasted in the social media time suck vortex…time, time, time.
One thing I know for sure is that time is all we have.
I have learned this lesson over and over again both professionally and personally. Time is the most valuable asset we have and, in a world that seems to be getting busier and busier, time is also becoming a precious and rare commodity.
It pains me to see real estate professionals missing out on the immense benefits of implementing a social media strategy because it’s too overwhelming and because they simply don’t have the time.
According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2016 Member Profile,
91% of all real estate professionals use social media in some format.
The question is...
ARE THEY USING IT EFFECTIVELY TO GROW THEIR BUSINESS?
For the past several years I’ve had the honor of coaching small groups of real estate professionals through a 6-week program called #GetSocialSmart. With over 100 alumni of the course now, I’ve witnessed incredible transformations of individuals and businesses. Seeing people finally ‘get’ social media, using it to exponentially grow their real estate business, connect better with their clients and, most importantly, taking back their time has been extremely rewarding.
In a recent survey, here’s what our #GetSocialSmart alumni had to say:
- 97% of my #GetSocialSmart alumni said they would recommend the 6-week #GetSocialSmart course to friends and colleagues.
- On a scale of 1 to 10, (1 being the least valuable and 10 being the most valuable) #GetSocialSmart alumni, on average, rated the value they received based on the money they spent a 9.
- 98% said they loved being able to access the content anytime, go back and watch videos at any time of day on any device.
As successful as that program has been, I want to be able to serve more people in the real estate community. It is with that in mind that my team and I went to work reimagining the #GetSocialSmart program. We wanted to make it accessible to more people and also deliver the training in a way that allows people to go through it on their own schedule.
I’m beyond thrilled to announce the
This all-inclusive social media training course is designed specifically for you; the driven real estate agent who cares about their clients. Whether you’re already a top agent or gunning to be one, this academy will help you master the social media side of your business once and for all.
You are the type of agent who truly cares about your clients and consistently goes above and beyond to earn their loyalty and trust. You’re the agent that never misses a closing, recognizes the importance of celebrating your clients, and you’re always seeking to improve.
You’re excited about the possibilities of social media but just aren’t sure how to use it best. You understand the value of investing in training and education and you’re eager to create and implement your own social media strategy.
Most importantly, you understand that buying a home is, for most people, one of the biggest decisions of their lives. You don’t take your role is this process lightly and you are continually striving to better yourself and your processes to better serve your clients.

I know there are countless blog posts, videos and free webinars you could read, watch and attend when it comes to social media. But here is what you are going to get in the Academy that you aren’t going to get anywhere else. You are going to get someone who has more than 20 years of marketing and branding experience with the last ten focused on social media for the real estate industry.
I have consulted for some of the biggest companies in real estate and mortgage such as RE/MAX International, DocuSign, Realtor.com, and so many others. I have helped companies on average grow their social media presence by more than 40%. In the last five years, I have spoken to tens of thousands of real estate professionals on stages all over North America teaching social media strategy and how agents can use it best for their business.
Invariably, after every single event I speak at, I have agents coming up to me, asking questions and asking me if they can hire me as their coach, or for an hour, or to ‘pick my brain.’
Here’s the thing….I wish I had the bandwidth and the time to help everyone. But, as we all know - time is our most precious asset. As much as I’d like to, I just don’t have the time or ability to work one-on-one with agents. But, I have a strong desire to help and serve more people.
This why I created the #GetSocialSmart Academy.
Once you are a member of the Academy you will have exclusive access to me through our private Facebook group and our exclusive group Academy calls to reach out and chat, ask me questions, have me take a peek at your Facebook page or just offer advice.
A monthly #GetSocialSmart Academy membership is $97/month and you will be billed on your credit card each month. If you’d rather save a bit - I recommend signing up for our annual pass which is $970 for a 12-month membership; which means you are only paying for 10 months but getting 2 months free as a thank you for your annual membership.
We are so excited about the Academy, and know there is nothing else like this on the market right now - we want to make this really a great deal for everyone who is one of the first people to sign up.
