    Say Hello to Sip Social Sell 

    As a Realtor, speaker and blogger I leverage social media and vlogging in my
    business on several channels to promote my real estate business, brand and
    my listings including coming soon listings and
    virtual open houses.
    This includes Facebook Live videos,
    posts and ads, Instagram Stories and posts, YouTube videos,
    Linkedin posts and videos, Twitter and Snapchat.

    My social media set up and strategies are just that…a good mix of strategy to get as many eyes
    looking at my real estate posts and local content as possible.
    I share this because I do understand the “deer in the headlight” feeling that most
    people have when it comes to dealing with using social media in their business
    and I can tell you that with a little practice, thoughtful planning and strategy you can learn
    how to leverage social media for your business.

    If you would like FREE tips and techniques that I have used that has helped me
    learn to schedule and coordinate my “social media”  Click here to get now!  and get my
    18 Instagram Tips + Why I Love Niches in Business download!

    #SipSocialSell Tips of the Month

    Pick one or two social media platforms that you like, where you audience and clients
    are and share relevant information that is informative and helpful to them. Period.
    Don’t worry about the newest bright and shiny social media app either,
    just focus on what you have for this week and month.

    Finding content is easy, but it can be overwhelming. So take an hour once a week,
    pick an area of expertise  that you really are passionate about in your business and
    set up a few posts that you can comment on in your post.

    Don’t forget…you can tag a few people too on your Facebook Biz page and your personal page.
    Another reminder…it is okay to post about your business on your personal page
    (think the 80/20 rule…80% of your posts should be personal and 20% business.
    This is a great way to remind people that you are “xyz business” without selling
    to them. And lastly just breath…play around with the different apps
    it can be fun as well as profitable to your business.

    I hope you enjoyed this newsletter. Buzz by my social media channels and say hello, like and
    subscribe! If you are in business let me know how I can refer to you and if you have social media business
    pages please let me know so I can support you by liking back and subscribing to your blog or website!

    Hurricane Irma Tips & Preparation

    Boca Raton City Residents Hurricane Preparation

    Don’t forget to be neighborly folks… in a hurricane, everyone is under stress. Check on the neighbors on each side of you before and after the storm. If there are any senior citizens in your neighborhood please check on them to make sure they are okay. Who is the point person or persons in your community? This is a great time to join www.Nextdoor.com to stay in touch with and get updates in your neighbors.

    Public Safety Alerts: Opt In & Sign Up Before the Next Named Storm

    Hurricane

    In the event of a hurricane or serious emergency, the City’s communication team will keep you updated with public safety alerts. Messaging may include information about city services, available resources and evacuations.

    When Hurricane Matthew threatened South Florida last September, the City sent a Code Red alert message to subscribed Boca Raton residents letting them know when the Emergency Operations Center was activated. Once activated, the City and the Police Department worked together to provide updates on Twitter, Facebook and Nixle. The Citizens Information Center (CIC) opened and began taking calls from residents and providing support and assistance. Boca Raton’s CIC is staffed with volunteers who are available to answer calls before, during and after the storm.

    This year, residents have an additional opportunity for communication and information through AlertPBC. AlertPBC is a Palm Beach County Emergency Notification system that provides all County updates, in addition to City updates. AlertPBC may be especially beneficial for those who live in Boca Raton and work elsewhere in the County, or vice versa.

    Getting the right information to the right people at the right time allows individuals to make informed decisions for themselves, their families and their businesses. To stay connected before, during and after a storm, be sure to sign up and opt in to receive public safety alerts.

    1. Text your zip code to 888777 to receive Nixle public safety alerts from the Boca Raton Police Department.
    2. Sign up for Code Red to receive emergency alerts for City residents from the City of Boca Raton.
    3. Sign up for AlertPBC to receive Palm Beach County alerts that include Boca Raton alerts and other cities you choose.
    4. Follow the City of Boca Raton on Facebook & Twitter.

    Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th with the peak period from early August through the end of October. Although
    the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is forecasting a below-normal hurricane season this year,
    they also caution that coastal areas may not have it all that easy. According to a comment made by the Federal Emergency Management
    Agency’s (FEMA’s) Deputy Administrator, Joseph Nimmich, “It only takes one hurricane or tropical storm making landfall in your community
    to significantly disrupt your life!” As part of our Hurricane Preparedness Kit, here are several tips that homeowners and renters can take before a hurricane strikes:

    1. Have a basic emergency kit, which includes battery-powered radios, flashlights,
    water, non-perishable food, a first-aid kit and prescription medications.

    2. Keep a written list in a plastic bag of important phone numbers. This can include numbers of family members
    in other states, local emergency management and shelters, hospitals, your homeowner’s insurance rep. or for renters,
    the landlord or property manager.

    3. From very early on, homeowners should verify their property insurance to see how much coverage they have,
    and if necessary, increase coverage especially for personal property. Renters should obtain renters insurance on their
    personal belongings.

    4. Know your evacuation route, have alternative living arrangements and keep your car fueled should an evacuation
    be necessary. Storing extra cans of gasoline in a safe place is also a plus.

    5. Homeowners should make sure that there are storm shutters to cover all windows and sliding glass doors. If
    you cannot install them, make sure you have someone lined up early who can complete the installation.

    6. Renters should review their lease to verify who is responsible for installing storm shutters. If you are responsible
    for the installation of the shutters, make sure you know where they are located and verify that there are sufficient
    shutters to cover all glass windows and doors.

    7. Have surge protectors on all major appliances, televisions, computers and other major electronic equipment.
    Also, generators are excellent for diminishing the damage that can result from abrupt power outages.

    8. Secure or remove potential windborne objects around the home such as garbage cans, barbecue grills, yard furniture
    and kids’ outdoor toys.

    9. Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed so they are more wind resistant.

    10. Determine how and where to secure your boat, RV, and additional vehicles. There are also a number of online resources you can
    visit, including the National Hurricane Center: www.nhc.noaa.govFEMA , and Palm Beach County Emergency Management
