"What Does it MEAN to Get Business from the Internet?"

By
Education & Training with Sell with Soul

What does it mean to "get business from the Internet?"Internet

I dunno. I've never really done it, as a real estate agent anyway. Oh, sure, I get a hit every now and again from my (nearly abandoned) real estate blog, my Facebook page, and my www.CharmingOldDenver.com site, but it's certainly nothing I could live on.

I've half-heartedly experimented with various online lead generation systems and tools ($1800 here, $275 there) and haven't seen squat for my efforts or dollars. So, when I hear agents claim that they get "most of their business online," I have to admit I'm a bit skeptical... and admittedly a little envious.

So, with the goal of enlightening myself and my beloved readers, I've put together a panel of experts to tell us all exactly how they "get business from the Internet."

Lenn Harley, Karen Rice, Renee Burrows and Robin Sherman will be joining me in the SWS Studio on Wednesday, February 17th to spill the beans on the what's, where's, why's, how's, etc. of generating real estate business online. They may not tell us ALL their secrets, but if you're as clueless as I am about concept, I'm sure you'll know a whole lot more AFTER than you did BEFORE.

It's a freebie show, so if you have time in your crazy calendar, please stop by. You'll have to register to get access - Just Go HERE.

It's Wednesday afternoon/evening, starting at 4pm (Pacific) / 7pm (Eastern).

I am with you Jennifer - is it possible that we ARE getting business from our internet presence and don't realize it?

 

I will be tuning in.

In a time when 85% or more buyers start their search online.  It's even more important to gleen some ideas as to how to capture those opportunities online.

Great idea!

I work regularly to keep in touch with my sphere of influence AND to maintain Internet presence. I have measurable results from both of those efforts! :)

I'm looking forward to being part of your show Jennifer! One thing I do love about real estate; it always evolves so we are always learning. Many of the internet tools we take for granted today didn't even exist a few years ago.It keeps us on our toes - a good thing in my book!

I'm IN!!! I have done reasonably well on-line and my business is growing.  I would say that about $2 million in gross sales has come via the internet over the past year.

This I'm really looking forward to. My partner and I had over 80 leads from a well know lead generator last year and we got squat. Leads on my website are increasing a better conversion rate would be welcomed.
