I just became a Trulia Pro.
It feels good. My original commitment is fairly small, and for extra exposure to myself, my services and my listings...
It seems like a potentially great investment.
Trulia is the fastest growing real estate website. They currently have over 5 million users. If you are considering buying, selling, or are an agent that wants to learn more, you should check out the site.
They offer a free profile for real estate agents as well as an upgraded account called Trulia Pro.
There are two main benefits of becoming a Trulia Pro over the free Trulia profile:
FEATURED LISTINGS: All of my listings are now "featured" on the Trulia search pages. Featured status generates 4-7 times more traffic to my listings. More traffic equals more exposure for my listings and more leads for me.
LOCAL SPOTLIGHT ADS: Trulia creates a "spotlight" ad for the agent. This ad is placed conveniently on the side of the search pages for my covered areas. For example, someone searching for a home in Naperville may see my ad on the side of the search page. The ad is complete with links to my website, tag lines, and my smiling picture...
Trulia also offers two payment options. A month to month for $39/month. The other has a year committment for $29/month. Anyway, I signed up for a month to month plan. I am looking at this as a test drive...
Ohh. That reminds me. An awesome feature of Trulia is that they will send you and your clients free "traffic" reports. They look quite nice, your sellers love them, and will let me see the impact of becoming a Trulia Pro!
Trulia also offers all Keller Williams agents a free month trial. With that in mind, and fresh off an important closing, I thought it was a good time to make an investment in my business.
I just became a Trulia Pro. If you are a fellow agent and have any experiences with Trulia or Trulia Pro, I would love to hear them.
