When deciding to purchase a home, the first activity most people take is to do an internet search for “homes for sale city-state” I know this is not a great revelation but stick with me. The typical search result is realtor.com, zillow.com, redfin.com, trulia.com, etc. How do you compete with that?

Prospects will buy you before they buy a home, but they need to find you, and I don't think it's any surprise that it's VERY difficult to be found on the internet.

So if you have chosen internet marketing as one of your marketing channels, I am offering you information to help you succeed.

This week the information comes from Jason Fox, who I hope many of you know. Jason consistently provides first-rate information on how to succeed with your internet marketing.

How many individual realtors in your area have websites? How many real estate firms have websites? And what about the MLS website?

There is virtually a sea of websites you are competing with, and you have to find ways to drive people to yours.

This is a tall order, and if you are serious about increasing your traffic, then you have some work to do.

Your Work Can Be Divided into 3 categories.

  • Category 1: Website Design
  • Category 2: Content and SEO
  • Category 3: Social Media Marketing
