Scott: It’s really important for you to look professional on social media because in today’s market in real estate investing, professionals, bankers, lenders, other investors, joint venture partners, private funders, they are going to be researching you online.

It’s become the era of the social stalking, and not just talk about dating . . . well, actually it is kind of like dating. Your investors, your potential deal sources, are going to be looking online to see what you look like online. So most investors that have a professional LinkedIn profile and they have a good photo, they’ve got their projects, a complete profile, too, look like they’re in business. And that’s really important.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen pictures of somebody with shots from last weekend or chicks in a bathing suit. That’s not professional. You’re in business and you need to act like you’re in business because how you look is how people take you as a lot of times.

First impressions come before you’ll ever have a chance to open your mouth a lot of times, so keep that in mind when you are online. Take the extra 10, 20, 30 minutes to make your profile look professional, and trust me, it will turn out to be you’ll get checks a lot bigger and a lot more often if you do that.
