Hit Router - How To Set Up Your Own Click Campaign

By
Education & Training with Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus

This is much simpler than you may think, so don't complicate it or get frustrated until you have reviewed this entire post.  This was written to walk you through the process with little or no pain.  Let's see how I do.

Hit Router is really a simple Pay Per Click system, very similar to Google Ad Sense and Ad Words, the difference is that it is housed within the AR Network and it revolves around members Blog pages and IDX Listing Sites.  The traffic this will help generate to your sites will be easy and measurable now.

  • Members can buy visitors/traffic to their IDX sites for $x.xx amount per click-through which is determined by amount needed to be bid to win the auction. (like Ad Words).  

  • Members who have visitors land on their blog pages who subsequently search for property in a city (outside of their own market place)  get credited a % of the $x.xx amount.  
  • Members can then use those credits to purchase visitors/traffic back to their IDX sites, and so on...

Another major highlight to this Hit Router program is that we have other resources who will buy any traffic AR members don’t choose for themselves, yet the AR member delivering the traffic will still receive the credit into their account.  This is a win win for you and for them.

IMPORTANT NOTE

The "Hit Router" will ONLY show up on your pages when LOGGED OUT of ActiveRain.

Follow these 5 steps to setup your own campaigns for your market areas.


This next post will show you How to "Opt-Out" but I can't see any reason you would.  :-)

Tracy - I think you can set that up any way you like. Just provide the links to the proper locations and you should be set. :-)

I've read through a number of responses. I am a busy REALTOR and I don't like being refrred to as a " do nothing."

To all members, because another member is not blogging does not mean they are a 'do nothing".

I could say the same to all of the members who only seenm to be blogging all day and not out working with customers.

Please change from 'do nothing' to those that are 'busy with cusotmers.' All us 'busy' agnets will agppreciate it!

 

thanks!

Linda Just - the "Do Nothing" refers to "Not setting up Listing Router or Campaigns," it in no way implies anything negative about anyone or Agents, nor does it stereotype as you've made it sound.  It was a response to another members comment, and based on the terms and intent in which it was written, it will stay.  Thanks.

Kelly - make sure you are only typing the city.  No spaces, no state, no commas etc.  I just checked and it is working ok.  Maybe when you tried last, it was when we were having some glitches on the network. Try again and let me know.  Thanks. :-)

I'm not clear on what website I add when I create a campaign? I hit campaign, put in the city, and then I'm suppose to add a URL, is that my URL to my website?

Step 4. Add the url of the IDX site to direct traffic to.... (That's my website correct)

Thanks Coni

Hi Coni - the site or URL you'll want to enter is the one that goes to your IDX site.  This is the key to the success of capturing leads when visitors use this tool.  I'm in NYC, but will be happy to help you if you need when I return. :-)

Interesting concept.  I didn't know such a thing existed on AR until now.

Looks good Brad...but we stagers need this too, although we do not have an idx site, it would be nice to have them directed to our personal website.  There could be a search bar, "City looking for a stager in"  or something like that.  This would do a world of good for the real estate staging and redesign profession.

As always, thank you for your easy to understand posts and tutorials Brad.

Aron - you could also hook up with your REALTOR® clients and send them some love using their IDX sites.  I hear what you're saying, we'll be coming out with some stuff that will benefit Lenders, Stagers, Title Co's etc.  We can only build and make changes so fast, none of us sleep as it is.  Thanks.  Great comment.  :-)
