website: Weekly Website Tip: How Much Twitter Traffic Does Your Website Get? - 06/17/14 05:43 AM
Much of what we do at Peacock Virtual Solutions and The Agent Accelerator, after building our customer's websites, is teach them how to drive the most traffic to the website they just paid for.
Everybody wants their website to provide a steady stream of new clients, or what we call conversion.
Conversion is turning an anonymous website visitor (traffic) into a lead (getting them to tell you who they are, typically by provoking them into contacting you by phone, email or web form submission. And then turning that lead into a client.
The simple fact of the matter is this: Your website can't convert somebody who isn't on it.

Most folks probably already know this, but for those who don't, you need to install Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools on your website.

Operating as both a real estate agent and a service provider to other real estate agents, lenders and attorneys, I meet all sorts of people.

website: Weekly Website Tip - Lose the Dark Background - 02/17/14 04:14 AM
I've been asked to share some simple tips that people can use to help with their websites. So naturally I agreed, and decided that I could share a tip every week and maybe people would find it useful.
This week's tip is concerning the background color of your website. I think in our drive to be different, sometimes we make bad decisions and maybe don't even know that it was bad.
I want to address dark (especially black) backgrounds on websites. I'm really not sure why this is still done, but it is. I see a lot of real estate agents … (81 comments)

website: Your Website Sucks Part 1 - 01/24/14 02:54 AM

That's right... Your website sucks! Well maybe YOURS doesn't but if I were talking to a room of 100 real estate agents, that statement would be true of 90 of them at least.
"Why does my website suck?" you ask... Well if your website is provided by your large, national brokerage as "value" of hanging your license with them... it probably sucks.
