How To Complete A Direct Mail Campaign (In Less Than 30 Minutes)

by Seth Williams on 1:38 pm April 14, 2014

Over the past 6 years, direct mail marketing has been one of the most successful methods that I’ve relied on to find motivated sellers. It has yielded a consistently solid response rate, which has resulted in my ability to generate more leads, close more deals and make more money (both in good times and in bad). This is all good and fine – but there are a lot of real estate professionals who have heard this story over and over again and have never actually … Read More »

What’s the best lead site for real estate agents?

by Craig Simoneau on 10:31 am July 8, 2013

Nearly every day I talk to agents that are looking for the answer to the same question. What’s the best lead generation site? Zillow? Trulia? Realtor.com? At the surface this sounds like a simple question, but even though I work with hundreds of agents that get leads from over 50 sources, the answer is still unclear. The reason it’s so hard to answer the best lead source question starts with the very nature of the websites that generate these leads. It’s important to keep in … Read More »

by Sam DeBord on 6:51 pm March 26, 2013

Rebogateway real estate leads

I had a chance to review a new product recently that takes a more strategized approach to finding listing leads for real estate agents.  Rebogateway (R.E.B.O. being an acronym for Real Estate Back Office) is a product that focuses on which homeowners are most likely to sell in the near future.  The emphasis is on saving the agent time and money by focusing their marketing efforts on the leads that are most likely to convert. Rebogateway is tied into a number of data sources, from … Read More »

Building Brand with Social Media at the Brokerage Level

Hawaii Life Facebook Insights

Real Estate Social “Notworking?” It was getting close to Inman Connect NY, and I could feel the urgency in a text message from Matt Beall, “did you get my email regarding the social media case study for Inman?” I’m sure somewhere—in the ether that is my inbox—sat an email from Mr. Beall. Knee deep in a Hawaii Life interface redesign, however, my Gmail account was left unmanaged and overflowing its 200G limit. Since integrating social media into our real estate search in September 2011, I hadn’t really thought … Read More »

by Jeremy Linder on 4:49 pm November 17, 2011

craigslist marketing for real estate

In many markets the online classified site Craigslist.org gets insane amounts of traffic. Many real estate agents have attempted to take advantage of this by repeatedly posting ineffective ads and conclude it’s not a reliable source of website traffic or lead generation for them. Heck, I was even one of these agents for most of 2010. You see I was posting ads nearly every day but the only responses I ever got were spam. How can that be? I was using professional looking HTML templates, … Read More »

by Daniel Beer on 7:58 am January 17, 2011

Some real estate agents out there have to reread the popular best selling book  “Who Moved My Cheese” because they are just far to stubborn, and, more importantly, are losing market share. Here’s The Background To The Story I recently had a conversation about online lead capture with an agent that left me shaking my head.  This particular agent was once an absolute powerhouse.  In fact, she was at one time a highly celebrated agent that was consistently honored by one company award after another.  … Read More »

by Ryan Hinricher on 6:09 pm January 31, 2010

As many social media experts, gurus, and ninjas try to “monetize” social media for their clients, others are focusing simply on the connection and interaction with clients.  Dare I say “engaging”?  Engagement used to be for when 2 people decided to get married, but today it has quickly become the reason you use Twitter, Facebook, and other social media outlets.  In fact, it might be the most overused word of 2009.  We all agree social media and engagement are here to stay though, at least … Read More »

Once you are able to get a web design that has great usability that has lowered your bounce rate and improved your traffic.
