Real Estate Websites

Real Estate Websites with video and many of the internet tools that are available today are so powerful when used correctly; I am curiously amazed that so many real estate agents are so slow to adapt to such great opportunities.

Video on your real estate website offers so many benefits that I am actually puzzled that real estate agents have not been drooling over the potential to increase and enhance their real estate sales. It’s use as a marketing tool, listing presentation tool, a pre listing tool, buyer presentation tool, free traffic tool or search engine ranking tool. I mean the list can go on and on, yet most Real Estate Professionals are afraid to get in front of the camera or unwilling to spend a little money to get a video made.

I am going to share with you some incites and strategies that I find fascinating. As a marketing tool it blows away other mediums in terms of price, reach and the ability to track results. The cost to get a video made with twenty or thirty photos is about a tenth that of print medium and the video can stay working for you for years, pushing visitors to your website by attaching a simple link. Pretty much any one can take some photos, so there really is no reason not to include this as one of your top marketing strategies.

One of the biggest benefits happens when you get your listings on YouTube, not a virtual tour site because there is very little organic or free traffic that comes from these sites. You have to be able to put the YouTube video on your website so that you can direct visitors to your site with email, word of mouth and other marketing efforts. It is essential that you have a website with the proper lead capture technology; I say this because internet lead generation has now become the most effective ways to increase your real estate sales.

Get the video of your sellers home onto your website, call your sellers and tell them that you are going to send them the link to your site with an attached email letter that they must send to all of their friends. This attached email hass a prewritten email they can copy and paste, it contains a P.S. to have them forward this email as a super big favor to all of their friends.

Stress to them the importance of this, because if they get their home sold in the first forty five days it could mean a significant difference in the final selling price. This is because they will not have to deal with a price reduction in forty five days and as a rule the buyers that come in later on in a listing will know that their home has been on the market and very often will be encouraged by this to make a lower offer.

Now you have done two things, you have motivated them to email to their list and you have set the stage for a forty five day price reduction.

To illustrate, if your sellers have fifty friends in their database and if their friends that have been encouraged by the P.S. in the email, forward this email to their fifty friends, that would be 2,500 emails all linked back to your website. The numbers of free visitor traffic can be enormous, if only ten percent participate in this viral marketing effort that would be 250 people that your sellers have silently referred and directed to your website. All for the inexpensive cost of a video, and your sellers are doing all the work… Gives me goose bumps thinking about it!

We just did a new video yesterday for a London Ontario Condominium; Brian Byrne of RE/MAX Centre City Realty has just added the video to his website. Take a look Turn Photos into Video. They really do add a lot of Wow factor, one more big benefit for using video as they impress the heck out of your sellers. I love it because almost all sellers start telling all of their closest friends and family to go look at the video.  Notice how you can add your website link for driving additional organic traffic back to your real estate website.

What is clear is that today it is much more difficult to survive this industry without knowledge of online marketing strategies. In order to succeed and maintain profitability and relevance in the industry, you must have knowledge on this critical aspect of the business.

Most successful real estate sales people have learned to use the internet for growing their businesses. They have developed and mastered smart ways by which to attract and retain clients online.

You can find comprehensive and advanced Real Estate Professional training programs online. Some of are free of charge but the best ones require you to pay reasonably for the courses. The online real estate training courses are offered to both beginners and experienced Real Estate Professionals. Basically, any person wishing to improve their online presence in this lucrative field can go for this training. Due to the dynamic nature of the internet, ongoing training is always called for so as to inform oneself with relevant and upcoming issues.

Conventional real estate training usually follows set guidelines and curriculum requirements. Knowledge of the internet and how to harness it to your advantage is not a requirement for one to be issued with a Real Estate Professional licence. Most trainers ignore teaching this crucial aspect of the trade and focus only on the laid down curriculum as it can be very difficult to acquire the knowledge. In fact, some of these trainers are in business and do not have time to learn new trends and changes related to the internet.

It can be disappointing to spend so much time on acquiring knowledge while others are making money online. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you upgrade your skills in this area of online internet real estate strategies with proven methods of lead capture, lead conversion and relationship building. Your trainer must be updated on the latest information, software and SEO strategies being used by Internet masters to gain the lion’s share of new real estate leads.

The trend is steadily increasing as technology improves and any tech savvy individual knows that the internet is the new platform for business.

It is not difficult to achieve Real Estate Professional training today. The courses can be packaged conveniently to suit your personal schedule.

Real Estate Blogging  - Real Estate Training                                                                       

You can learn to effectively communicate with your clients by getting knowledge from real estate training. Effective communication requires an inexpensive and easy means of keeping in touch with your clients. Currently, the most effective means of communication with clients is through the internet. As a Real Estate Professional if you do not have a lead generation website and a personal blog, you are certainly leaving deals on the table.

There are tried and tested methods you can use in order to achieve success in internet marketing. Such training is essential in ensuring that you not only have a presence online, but also earn revenue from your lead generation website and maintain contact with your real estate blog.

The Commission Gusher Advanced Real Estate Training program is designed to offer Real Estate Professional training in internet marketing, lead generation, lead conversation, and relationship building. One of the basic and advanced lessons you will learn from this comprehensive program include:

Real Estate Blogging

-          The proper manner in which to place yourself in the eyes of the client. Clients are constantly inundated with salespeople and do not want another sales pitch. Your website is for sales your blog must be focused on giving education, current news and facts to users. You will learn to think like an expert so your site becomes a source of credible and reliable information for clients.

-          Cheap and effective means of communicating and keeping tabs with your clients. Real estate blogs and websites are the easiest means by which you can communicate with clients. Direct mail is useful but has become costly and cumbersome to prepare. It is still used in real estate correspondence and should still be an integral part of your overall strategy. Only, in today’s market it can be scaled back 75% to even 100% with the proper implementation of online marketing strategies. Use of the telephone is essential; however its use can be dramatically enhanced when properly synced with smart timely internet marketing strategies.

Recommended Reading ---->> Real Estate Blogging

-          There are many easy ways of conducting research and accumulating resources that will add value to your real estate blog. Value translates to search engine optimization which is crucial to the success of your online marketing campaign. You will see first hand how your blog can be used to drive your websites high in the search engines. Basically, it involves having great content and good keywords on your site, having “back links” that point to your personal website and only your real estate blog will offer this overall flexibility to increase your PR or page rank.

-          Ways and means by which to reduce the overall cost of mailing and advertising to clients. This will entail the use of email marketing through your real estate blogs. A well written email sent to clients will only be a few short sentences long sufficient to express yourself or make your offer linking your clients and customers to your blog post. This will translate to savings of thousands of dollars that would have been used to mail correspondence to potential customers. If your clients are not interested in your email, they will not mind glancing at your short email. They will be ticked if they have to read a lengthy email that they are not getting value from. This is just one critical reason to implement a blog as an overall part of your internet marketing strategy.

-          How to develop newsworthy and readable content to your clients, your blog should only be about news and articles of interest. Users are very conscientious about what they read and will immediately detect obvious sales pitches. The sales pitch should be reserved for your website. Once they get a wrong first impression, they are unlikely to return to your site or blog anytime soon. Conversely, once they are impressed by your content, they are likely to get hooked to your domain for good. Enabling you to shape your reputation the way you would like to be perceived in the eyes of your clients and customers.

-          Your blog will link to your real estate website from here your clients can signup or phone you to request your services view listings or download special reports as required by their own needs and motivations.

-          It is important to remember that people love to buy the never like to be sold. Once your buyers or sellers make a move, they do not want to see another sales pitch 30 days later. Your blogging strategy will enable long term client retention and in another article you will see how to turn this into a steady steam of referrals.

Real Estate Professional training cannot be ignored if you are to succeed in your online marketing campaign. In this very new real estate market, the agent that takes the initiative to educate them self about internet technology, will succeed.

This is a great radio interview on the impending battle over the MLS system. As a Real Estate Agent, this could be the fight of your life. Should the Canadian Competition Bureau win this attempt to Shanghai this 50 year old system built by the Real Estate Industry, it could very well be the cause of the collapse of the Multiple Listings Service as we know it.

It has already been rumored that some of the larger Real Estate Brokerages will pull out of the MLS and create their own private version if this 50 year old system.
