BravoTV's Million Dollar Man Gets Social - Page 2
R2i: Do you maintain your social profiles?
Madison: I basically manage them myself along with the help of my office staff. There are also applications like socialmadesimple that I utilize on occasion.
R2i: Social media has had a huge impact on increasing viewership on reality television. How has it affected your show "Million Dollar Listing?" You all seem to have a very active following.
Madison: We do have an active following, and Bravo has made social a huge part of their fan outreach; doing things such as creating personal blogs on their website, providing fans with personal stories and photos of their show's stars. It's also a great way for me to personally remind my fans of my entertainment ventures so that no one that's connected to me is left out of the loop.
R2i: How has social media affected business for you?
Madison: Social media has put me ahead of the curve among other real estate agents. When you look at the big picture, I’m one of the youngest in my field.
R2i: Has it made it easier?
Madison: It allows prospects to find me much more easily...so that I can help them with their real estate needs.
R2i: What has been the best social media outreach you have experienced? Any great fan stories or awesome home sales?
Madison: It happens quite often...business comes through some channel of social media. For instance, today, someone I went to school with 10 years ago, reached out via twitter with a real estate need. I immediately responded and potentially have a new buyer...all before noon today! I do have die-hard fans that contact me through social, commenting on nearly everything I post. It makes me feel like I almost know them personally.
R2i: Any tips for other reality TV personalities when using social media?
Madison: If you are on reality TV, and you aren't utilizing social, you are making a huge mistake.
R2i: 3 pieces of advice you would give to someone trying to break into the reality television world.
Madison: 1. Make sure you have your head on straight and your feet on the ground before you are willing to share your life with the world. 2. Each year, I go into each season with a positive message or purpose that I want to emanate. 3. Don't do reality TV because you're desperate for attention or financial gain. If these are your reasons, you'll find that you are susceptible to doing things you will regret.
