Craigslist Lead Generation Strategy

Real Estate Agent with Donovan & Associates Realty

As promised yesterday, I'm going to share with you how to take a $50 a month toll free information line that you can use to record up to 1,000 recordings and turn it into 10 closed transactions each year by using Craigslist.

First, let me state, this is not my idea.  My good friend Gary Elwood with Proquest Technologies came up with this idea and to get all the information you'll either need to call his customer service line at (800) 959-3959 or go to his website at  Let him know Robert Donovan sent you.

Here are a few tidbits to wet your appetite.  Why do we as realtors give the prospective client all the information they are looking for in our advertising.  Wouldn't it make more sense to withhold a few key pieces of information such as pricing, amenities, etc. to get them to call.  And would if when they called for the additional information you received the phone number they called from whether they left a message or not.  If you could generate 50 leads each month using this strategy do you think you could convert one of them into a closed transaction? 

You can use this strategy on Craigslist to generate an unlimited number of buyer leads.  Don't work with buyers.  Refer them out and take a referral fee.  By spending 10 minutes a day posting this information on Craigslist you should be able to generate a minimum of 10 closed transactions each year. 

Go to the website or call the number above for more information.  I think you'll be impressed.

Hi Robert.  I think I am going to share you idea with all the agents in our office./  We already use craigslist and a lead capture website provided by our company to capture leads.  This will be just another way to capture more.

Once you have an engine in place to process transactions from leads, the focus must be on lead generation to fuel the engine!
