social media: You Are Being Stalked and you may not even know it. - 08/27/17 02:51 PM
You Have a Million Dollars. You want to invest that million. Who do you trust?
Well, I don't have a million dollars but what money I do have I want to put into the hands of a trustworthy investor. I have been with Edward Jones for several things in the past, 501 for college, IRA, etc... but I didn't have a local agent so I went to work researching. 
Maybe it's just because I build websites for a living and focus on lead capture, but man was I picky.  I stalked this guy! I first looked up Edward Jones people in the area. … (4 comments)

social media: Ramp Up Your Online Exposure for 2017 - 01/02/17 02:56 PM
I started writing for a brokerage company that just writes TO other brokers. They want to draw in other brokers in their area and offer a different approach to their real estate business. I've been writing on business coaching, branding yourself, the use of technology and if you're just working for someone else or really growing your business. 
 
I love it because it gets me thinking about my own clients and how they really want to grow their business in 2017. As many of you know, I was a real estate agent for several years and it just wasn't my bag, but … (43 comments)

social media: Expanding Your Online Presence for More Business - 08/23/16 07:30 AM
It's getting harder and harder to rise above the competition but it can be done. It takes time and commitment. It's consistency. It's being in front of your audience all the time, never letting more than a few days go by without them knowing who you are, what you do and where you do it.
Now, this is only for those that are really trying to make it online. My good friend has been a real estate agent for 25 years and just recently put up a website, but only for contact because she does no online marketing. All her business … (59 comments)

social media: Gaining Backlinks and Properly Sharing Your Posts and Website - 05/23/16 07:26 AM
 
Links, links and more links; that's what Google wants, right? And the more it finds your link out there the better... but that may not necessarily be true. Google is always on the hunt for unnatural back links; those that don't really make sense within an article or those that are just repeated over and over on every page with an unnatural keyword anchor text.
What do I mean by that? Let's say you are an real estate agent in Palm Desert... if all Google finds for your links is that exact phrase linked to your website over and over, it … (33 comments)

social media: How to Create Viral, Shareable Content for Great SEO - 08/08/14 12:41 AM
The two most important SEO factors today are quality content and it's value to others. If other people find it valuable, they will share, talk about and respond to that content. That's GREAT SEO. But, how do you create content that someone will want to talk about?
That's the toughest job of all. You don't have to be a great writer or composer but you do have to come up with striking material that will catch someone's attention and cause them to click on, browse, talk about and share. 
Real estate can be so difficult because it's often times a one-time thing. … (111 comments)

social media: How Active Do I Have to Be to Increase My Rank and Traffic? - 02/19/14 07:20 AM
Are you wondering how active you need to be on social media, blogging and on your website to get some actual leads and rankings? Yeah, you and everyone else. But the difference is the time you may be willing to spend verses your competition. For every major city, you know there is always someone with a full time staff and thousands of dollars being spent on website marketing and social media so how are you suppose to compete if you're a one-man (woman) show?
It can be very frustrating when you think you're doing everything right only to have your site … (71 comments)

social media: The Basics of Today's SEO - What You Should be Doing - 08/15/13 05:42 AM
SEO changes all the time and Google is constantly making updates and new strategies on how they rank sites. The last big shift was towards branding and Google has been promoting those websites that have significant branding which is why sites like Trulia and Zillow (which as a name have nothing to do with real estate) are dominating the top of the search engines. So how can we compete as individual real estate agents in our area?
Today’s basics of SEO come down to informative and unique content and then sharing that content. Simply writing or regurgitating a news article or … (56 comments)

social media: There's a Social Media for That.... - 04/28/13 07:45 AM
Which social media should I be using? You've heard that saying, "There's an app for that"... just about anything and everything you want to do on your mobile device, there's an app for that including all forms of social media.
And there is a plethora of social media.
Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Tumblr, Pinterest, Linkedin, etc... There are over 200 social media that have at least several hundred thousand members and hundreds more popping up every day. If they're unique and serve a purpose or solution to a problem, they expand and grow. But the six mentioned above are probably the … (7 comments)

social media: Hey There, That's a Fine Looking Blog Post - This is New? - 11/14/12 07:27 AM
Huh, just got this pop up on posting - even in draft -  a new blog on AR! That's kind of cool and another way we can showcase and expose our blogs - and YES (We want to be exposing ourselves)

Even if it's a listing, information, market report or local event, make sure you get it out there. Don't spam your friends, irritate them by posting every 5 seconds or posting the same message over and over - but make sure you take the extra time to get that well-thought out post the attention it deserves. Make sure you … (21 comments)

social media: Do Back Links from Social Media Impact My SEO? - 09/03/12 05:59 AM
How social links have an impact on your overall SEO As we talk about back links and how to gain them from high-quality sites or from blog comments and guest blogging, we can't leave out the very important social media back links. Although most of these back links, meaning a link from a post that you put on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, or Google Plus, are no follow back links, the way Google changes their algorithms, these may not always be no follow tags. Just because one area is not being utilized as much as another doesn't mean that next week it won't be as important. … (34 comments)

social media: Well, I Wouldn't Have a Job, Hence No Food, Therefore, Can't Live Without - 05/25/12 02:15 AM
Just under the contest wire and only because I was urged to enter.
This contest about what I can't live without wasn't going to be my top priority until I was convinced by Fred Carver that I must enter it since it was a no-brainer what I can't live without.
I thought, but I don't have some big fabulous reason, I just can't live without the Internet. 
He says, That's EXACTLY why you should enter.
OK, so there it is.. I would literally be WITHOUT A JOB if it wasn't for the Internet. I was never into the dot.com era but … (8 comments)

social media: A Facebook "Share" or Facebook "Icon" - What's More Important? - 05/21/12 10:13 PM
A Facebook "Share" or Facebook "Icon" - What's More Important? You've seen both, right? Those social media icons that take you to the website's page, Twitter feed or any other type of social media platform the author may have out there but what about the "share" buttons? Those are different in that they don't lead you to the website's Facebook page, but encourage you to "like" the page you're on right from the page without going to a specific site or leaving the page. Often they encourage you to write something about why you like it or a description.

With Google turning out their new Search Plus Your World algorythm online searches are getting more personal and more detailed than ever before.

social media: Are you Answering the Right Questions? - Tools for Online Marketing - 11/03/11 03:25 AM
I had originally titled this blog "talking with your audience instead of TO them" but this seems to encompass that thought as well. Are we engaging with our readers or simply throwing information into the WWWW (the 4th W is for WIND).
Do you want to be more well-known online? You have to start engaging the right people. No matter where you focus your energy; Twitter, Facebook, ActiveRain, LinkedIn, Digg, Etc.. you can connect with people by answering their questions. If we are so focused on what we are putting out into the Internet, we don't read what's coming in and … (16 comments)

social media: One Little Step that Could Be Paying You Back Big Time - 09/19/11 09:33 AM
 I recently wrote my summery of SEOMoz white board discussion on gaining back links via social media. While I tried to keep the post short, it still seemed a little overwhelming. I offered 5 steps to gaining back links from social sites such as Twitter, Facebook etc...
Just like you, I learn all the time too on what works and what doesn't. Let me give you a little heads up here... I FOUND WHAT WORKS.
While every detail of SEO can take time,  if you implement one or two things fairly often you can be leaps ahead of your competition. I … (62 comments)

social media: Top 5 Ways to Gain Back Links from Social Media Sites - 09/12/11 10:36 AM
Yes, you really can get back links to your site from social sites such as Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and Google+. Does it take some time? Yes, but anything worth doing well is going to take some effort on your part. But remember, this is all part of your marketing and it's going to cost you nothing BUT time. So you will need to decide if it's worth it or not.
1. Build a connection. If your a lone tweeter out there tweeting to no one or re-tweeting hundreds of non-essential topics a day, it's hard to build a following of genuine … (72 comments)
