Absolutely, that doesn't negate the necessity for opt-in and email marketing. Facebook ads extend the funnel. I have worked with real estate Agents this way and found it effective. Please let me know if you need any assistance and would like to arrange an online meeting to review.
Kathy has given me practical guidance on my IT needs and has gone the extra mile by helping me at my office. She has opened up the whole wide world of information technology and social media which I am sure will expand my real estate business. I highly recommend Kathy Hogeveen and Touch Marketing to anyone looking to expand their electronic marketing footprint.

Kathy and her colleges at Touch Media have provided me with service and information above my expectations. The webinars are well laid out and full of current information that I can apply immediately. The responses to any questions I have are quick and complete. Being able to repeat the webinar on line at my convenience and with printable handouts completes the experience. I have not only referred Kathy and Touch Media to my colleges but also to my clients. I will also continue to use Kathy’s services and continue to refer her company.

Kathy is an excellent trainer/speaker in the field of social media. Her multi-session program at the RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic "Summer Camp" in 2010 had a direct impact on my understanding of the primary social media platforms and their application to my business. As seminar leader she made effective use of:
● an initial survey ("What do you want to make sure you learn?")
● student introductions & interaction
● on-line demos
● hands-on exercises
● in-class tech assistants
● ad-hoc Q&A
● follow-up course materials
Since there was a lot of course content, I am still applying the ideas and concepts from these sessions, with LinkedIn as the starting point.
Kathy paced the seminar very well, taking into account the broad range of technical competence of the students. She was mindful of the physical environment of the classroom, making sure that everyone was physically comfortable and ready to learn. She demonstrated a good blend of "people skills" and technology skills.
Based my experience with Kathy's in-class seminars, I could see that she is constantly learning and sharing her new skills with others. In addition to her role as a trainer/speaker, her skill set would make her an ideal match for a consulting assignment, especially in the Real Estate industry.
I had the opportunity to first meet Kathy at a 2010 RE/MAX Ontario- Atlantic Summer Camp which hosted weekly Social Media training sessions for Realtors. Kathy's knowledge in this area was second-to-none and as one of forty+ participants, I came away well armed in the Social Media arena. Her ability to communicate required information and request manageable assignments was very helpful to the learning curve I experienced. Impressed with her insight and wanting to expand my knowledge and results, I hired Kathy and Touch Marketing to work on our website. I am awaiting the results of that and expect that again, it will be second to none ! I highly recommend her as a Social Media Guru !
I was given the opportunity to hire Kathy as a social media trainer for an 8 week boot camp. She is a person who knows what she's talking about and is confident in her delivery. Q & A session at the end of each training was typically silent due to her ability to cover all the bases during the presentation. Her response to questions and issues was timely and informative. I would highly recommend Kathy as your social media expert.
It's been a long time since I've spoken with someone as expert, articulate, and passionate as Kathy. I talk to consultants all the time as I work on reaching new levels of success for our brokerage and I have to say my recent conversation with Kathy regarding social media for business simply blew me away. Not only does Kathy know her stuff, she has great communication skills and can make straight roads out of mazes. I have a strong feeling that working with Kathy will lead to truly great results for us.
Working with Kathy has been rewarding and fun. She has the ability to make even the most difficult task seem easily possible. I believe she could work well with anyone
Kathy is very knowledgeable of the needs of todays internet consumer. She has a flair for what is visually appealing as well as the technical knowledge to take a project from start to finish - a rare find to have both these qualities.
I worked with Kathy when I was with Realty Executives of Utah as their project manager for their new website. Kathy's knowledge of her industry was superior. She has a unique ability to apply what we were wanting customized to the systems she was working on for our behalf. Her genuine care and concern for our complete satisfaction was shown throughout the entire project.
I would highly recommend her.

Kathy was our "go-to" contact at Lone Wolf when we had real issues, and she would always go to bat for me. I'm a very "attentive" client (to put it blandly) when it comes to our website, but even when we had difficulties communicating the issues, Kathy would do her best to understand what was going on and get it fixed or updated for us.
