Vendor Review – Sierra Interactive

by Mike McGee on 9:35 am December 20, 2016

In my previous post I mentioned I had found a new website/IDX vendor and promised to tell you who it was in an upcoming review post. Well, that time has finally come. The vendor I chose for our Intown Atlanta real estate website is Sierra Interactive and below is a video overview. I’m sure I didn’t cover everything in the video, so feel free to ask questions in the comments. I’ll answer what I can, but if you want to get specifics straight from the horse’s mouth, contact … Read More »

Real Geeks Releases Facebook Marketing Tool

by Sam DeBord on 8:18 am May 5, 2016

Real Geeks Facebook marketing tool

We don’t spend a lot of money on real estate marketing, but Facebook is one place where we dabble in ads. For those of you in the Real Geeks platform or those considering it, they just released a new feature that really improves the Facebook marketing process for Realtors (Disclosure: We have multiple Real Geeks products, but are not paid for promotion or referrals). The hassle with Facebook ads on a large scale is the reproduction of campaigns over time and across different areas. The … Read More »

RealGeeks Websites, and the Secret Sauce (a totally biased review)

by Sam DeBord on 4:57 pm December 10, 2014

Real Geeks websites

I get a bunch of calls and emails every week asking for information about the RealGeeks website system we use.  I’m happy to discuss it, but I figured if I just wrote a review of our experience, it might save me a little bit of time in the future. To be clear, RealGeeks doesn’t pay me, give me a discount, or any other benefits for writing about their product or sending them referrals.  I’ll give you the highlights because we wouldn’t stick with the product if … Read More »

Wild idea for Realtors: Allocate $10,000 to build a Premium Online Asset (doesn't have to be real estate)

by Joe Salcedo on 1:55 pm May 24, 2011

Successful Realtors / Brokers tend to lean towards building an offline cash flow portfolio — rental homes, residential flipping or even dabble in commercial real estate. Wild idea: how about allocating two closings worth of cash for an online asset? Real estate investing will always be my first love. I grew up watching my father buying, renovating, leasing and flipping 25-20 homes; I’ve owned a couple of my own the past 5 years. But lately I’ve diversified to online assets. I couldn’t resist the 15-20% … Read More »

Understanding Google's May Day Update

by Justin Britt on 5:28 pm August 4, 2010

Well, I know it’s been awhile since Google’s May Day update that occurred somewhere between Aug 28 and May 3. But understanding Google’s algorithm changes takes testing, research, and more testing—which takes time. Before I get started, it’s important to understand why the May Day update caused such an uproar in the SEO world. With Google pushing out 1+ algorithm changes a day, why spend so much time understanding the May Day update? Because this one update was responsible for traffic losses not seen since … Read More »

How Can We Increase Our Closings From Our Sites?

by Jeff Manson on 1:29 pm January 30, 2010

Aloha Tony did a survey in recent post that asked, “What percentage of your closings come from the web leads on your personal site? “.  I was amazed to see the high percentage of net savvy Geek Estate agents in the 0 -25% range. I would assume that most of the people that took the survey focus a large amount of time working on and energy driving traffic to their sites. I tried to come up with a list of the various reasons why the … Read More »

What Did You Do in 2009 That Made A Huge Difference?

by Jeff Manson on 11:53 am December 23, 2009

Reflecting back on the past year. I came up with three things that made a huge difference in my business. I would like to share them with you and here what you did in 2009 that made a huge difference. 1. Made the real estate search prominent on the homepage. (By putting the search high on the home page it made it really easy for the user to get right into a search for real estate. This caused the bounce rate to drastically drop.) 2. … Read More »

Should You Required Registration or Not?

by Jeff Manson on 5:40 pm September 10, 2009

I know this will be as popular with some agents as using a road map or set of questions when following up with a prospect 😉 I have been selling real estate online at a pretty high level for about 6 years now. I have also done a lot of A & B testing with required registration and without. Our analytics tell us that required registration, if done correctly, will convert more closed transactions than not requiring a registration. I know a lot of agents … Read More »
