It is extremely important that you have an on-line presence. You don’t need to spend thousands on a website, but you do want one that is professional, easy to use and has a lead-generation function as well as clients being able to search for properties, and you being able to set up searches for your clients.
Make sure you end up with a website that you have the option to make changes on, add photos, blog articles, etc. for no extra charges.
My website was built by The Blue Fire Group. I have enjoyed working with them. And, I would recommend you contact them and get a quote. This is your website, and you need to choose one that makes sense for you.
Websites that cost $199-$500 are worthless. You will never be found by search engines and these sites are nothing but pretty photos of you.
The current trend is to make sure you have a mobile-friendly site as Google will start penalizing those sites that are not mobile-friendly.
One way to maximize your organic search engine optimization (SEO) is to start and follow-through with a blog. I have tons of articles that I will share with you if you need help. There are a number of websites to find content on that is free. Read, read, read then write, write, write.
Write about what you know. Write articles that would appeal to your client base. Pick a theme and write 4-5 articles that have to do with that theme. Be creative and have fun!
You should post one article every day. That is ideal. Write 10-12 in one afternoon and get them ready to go. Then, it’s easy to just hit the Post button.
If you find an article on-line that you want to add to your blog, CHANGE AT LEAST 20% of the verbiage so that you are not guilty of plagiarism, or copyright infringement.
