I do not want quantity, i want quality. I use my Active Rain blog to drive new business. Then i do something different. Everywhere I go I have my IPAD PRO. When I see someone who asks me about the market, or about real estate or about my new listings. I can take it out, have them sign up or put in their email and i send them info on the spot.

Have a website worth spending time on after they find it is more important to avoid bounce and the never to return. Easy to navigate, more than just real estate listings, with helpful blogs, video, your real estate website better load like lightning fast, be easy to mosey around and don't forget your contact information clearly visible.

Use your social media channels that you weed and feed daily to tractor beam back to your website beehive of information served up quick and easy. Think fifth to ninth grader level in your approach as the local expert so you don't lose their attention. In your FAQ email questions, add a link to the page of your website where more buyer/seller resources are ready and waiting to help the visitor day or night. See the guy and gal in the audience and talk to them in your fresh helpful content conversation that saves time and money and does not make them feel dumb or over their head. 

Be helpful. Inject a little humor. Make it fun. Think customer buying or selling and what you sure could use right about now if you were in their moccasins or hush puppies, spike heels or high top Chuck Taylors. Build organically... it takes time but the internal links, the SEO rich image label, meta tags all bring solid results. Make your website more than a static business card. Advanced search filtering make the UX a repeat portal they will talk about and share that helps drive other business to your website.  Set up analytics so you know what works and why and where time is wasted to tighten up the list and shout, twist and sell (repeat). Search engines reward and help you be found if you work your sound plan day and night.

SEO, tagging, updating relevant content, link to blogs, advertising, links to social media posts & profiles. It is a lot of work, don't kid yourself. That is why so many spend a lot of money paying others to do it for them. Luckily, my wife, Natalie, who is also licensed,  handles most of that work for me.

YOU BUY MORE TRAFFIC.

Dollars may be the ONLY currency you need, however, sweat equity has more durable results.

What are you willing to do?
How much are you willing to spend?
When do you need the results?

Only with those answers can anyone suggest a method that can achieve the goals you want.
