Marketing your listings

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Foothills Realty

I spend a great deal of money on marketing - both our team and my listings.  I used to spend well over $100 a virtual tour through some of the local companies here in Colorado - Obeo.com who I know is national was the main provider in our area.  The average cost per tour was close to $150 after posting to Realtor.com.  We discovered a great tool called Listingsmagic.com which allows my assistant to take the photos (we also have a great photographer who will do the work for just $50).  She simply uploads them to Listingsmagic ,adds the property description and instantly we have an amazing virtual tour that they then publish for me to something like 20 plus websites out there and these include all the biggies - realtor.com, craigslist, trulia.com, oodle.com, msn.com, aol.com and a bunch of others. 

The best part is the cost - $250 and I cover all my listings for an entire year.  With 34 listings last year that would have cost me over $5000! 

 Almost forgot - I have seen more traffic back to my website as a result of using their technology as well.  They automatically send the viewers of my tours back to my website.  I get so much more traffic now and I don't pay extra for it like I do with pay per clicks - which have gotten really expensive.  It really has been the smartest thing I have come across from a marketing standpoint.

You can try them for free too.  Let me know if you have any questions but check them out at www.listingsmagic.com or take a look at one of my tours at www.listingsmagic.com/1323

Great information Dania,

This looks like it will save money and help eliminate entering duplicate information across multiple websites.

 Good Job!!

Orlando - I am familiar with Realestateshows.com.  They do good work too but I don't like that you just sit and watch their tours and I didn't get ANY leads from them... Zippo

Russ - I have tried realestateshows.com.  Seems like a lot of people like them but my sellers don't like them as much as listingsmagic.com and I don't either - AND - I can't emphasize this enough - I get leads from listingsmagic which I didn't get from realestateshows.  That's big to me in this market.

Dania, priceless information is always valuable.  Thank you for this great tip.  I use a competitor of OBE's, but the cost is virtually the same.  This is yet another wonderful option.
