growth leader: Market Leader makes us look great to our prospects - 06/04/09 08:30 AM
The activity on my Market Leader website has really picked up this week. I am still averaging a handful of new prospects each week, but some of the past prospects are beginning to become more active. This week I received 4 direct e-mails from active prospects looking for more information about homes.
One of these prospects wanted me to increase the price of their search criteria. I was having a hard time figuring out how to change their current listing alerts, so I called Market Leader to get some help. My call was picked up within 2 rings and answered by … (18 comments)

growth leader: Market Leader is like a Buffet for Consumers - 05/26/09 06:43 AM
If you are looking into joining the Growth Leader program, be prepared for some lag time. As you are probably aware, real estate can be a 3 to 4 month business. In other words, the things that you do to increase your business today, will likely take 3 to 4 months before they payoff. This is especially the case when working with Internet prospects. Most prospects that are signing up for accounts through the Vision websites are in the very early stages of the home buying process. The good news is that Growth Leader has already planned for this.

growth leader: Typo in Default Responses - 05/13/09 04:22 AM
I have been using the default responses to maximize my time in Vision. One of my favorite things to offer new prospects that sign on is the addresses of home listings. This gives me a chance to offer something in an attempt to build a personal relationship. However, I just realized today that the default response that I have been sending out has a typo, or at least sounds odd. This is something that Vision should take a look at correcting.
Here is the default response.
Addresses of Home Listings

growth leader: Ideas for Market Leader - 04/24/09 09:15 AM
I missed my post last week, so I’m writing two this week. Instead of giving another update I figured that I would provide some more useful information with my second post. With that said, I attended Gary Keller’s seminar in Seattle on Wednesday and watched a presentation on Top Producer. I’m also messing around with Graphical Data’s backend IDX right now, so I have been keeping a close eye on the various products that are available to real estate agent right now.
Jumping right into Top Producer, I was impressed with their Market Snapshot product. I like that fact that the … (4 comments)

growth leader: Week 3 of Growth Leader in Bellingham, WA - 04/24/09 05:21 AM
Week 3 in Growth Leader Week three was a slow week in growth leader as far as leads when. I only received two leads, of which only one provided any contact information. However, in week three I did discover how to allow consumers to see the addresses of homes. This is actually a pretty cool tool. In the back end of Vision, there is button that you can click to allow consumers to see the addresses. You can then go into the consumers profile and send them an automated message that lets them know that you have just turned on the … (2 comments)

growth leader: Week 2 of the Growth Leader Program - 04/10/09 07:25 AM
Now that I have had another week of working with the Vision system and Growth Leader, I am really starting to get into a grove. The leads are still pouring in. I have to admit that I am getting far more leads from Growth Leader than I anticipated. I believe that I have had nearly 30 contacts since the site was launched a couple of weeks ago. I was expecting to receive closer to a few leads a week.
One thing that I pointed out last week was that I have never used forced registration on my websites before. I am … (10 comments)
