Here is Useful Websites #18:

(Day 18 of my 30-day challenge!)

Do you remember what was the clue or hint I had given for this site? Get ready to get the leads.

After those couple of screen capture products, I wanted little diversion from being techy and wanted to be a consumer of technology. And when you are a consumer, you do need to spend little money. Yes, this is NOT a free service - but it is simple GREAT!

If it means little investment for lot of leads, would you like it? You have listings, you do your own marketing and if I say, getting leads - stratigically - is very easy, would you go for it?

Little more quizzing before I disclose this useful website - Scott Pierce is one of the members on ActiveRain. He is A former Realtor, Director of Online Marketing and now founder of Listings-to-Leads.

Did you get the clue? If not...

Here is the answer for Useful Website #18:

So what is Listings-to-leads?

And how does it achieve this difficult task?

Using simple technique - posting your listing ads of the world's highly ranked website - Craigslist. But just wait - it is not as simple as posting your 3-bedroom/2 bath condo in it. There is lot more to it.

This is from their website:

Listings-to-Leads (L2L) lets real estate brokers and agents post their listings to Craigslist with:
 -- Tools and information online buyers want, provided directly from your website
 -- Social media content providing more detailed information YOU and your area
 -- Multiple calls-to-action
 -- The property listing information (complete with photos and even your virtual tour links)

that generate leads from ALL online real estate buyers, not just the 1-2% interested in that particular listing.

One of the best ROI you'll ever receive from any marketing you use for your real estate business!

On one of the webinars, I had questioned Scott: I am predominently a buyer's agent. How does it help me to use L2L? His answer was crystal clear - this product serves the agents who has listings. It's a chain reaction - use this tool to get more leads which leads to more listings which you market using L2L resulting in more leads ...and on and on and on....

This is what I love about this site:

I am sure you'll try this out - at least once and see if it is helpful to you or not.

Your comments/suggestions are welcome.


I have joined the blog-a-day blogathon for next 30 days. This is day 18 of the 30-day-challenge. Woohoo...60% through! and I know, it does get tougher and tougher as you reach your goal.

In these 30 days, what better could it be to share something either I learned from some of the ActiveRainers or some other resource online and share it with the group?

At times, I may not know where and how I learnt about the websites and may not be able to give due credit to someone who informed me about that, but I still want to Thank all of them who contributed to my knowledge which I plan to share.

I am trying to use different field each day - and have now more than 30 such websites. Will I continue after 30 days? Let's see - first things first- I want to completed this 30-day challenge. I am trying to avoid some of the more familiar websites and focusing on some that may not be known to most of you - and still, yes, useful. 

You can create a free account on many of these websites and some of them may have some minimal subscription fees. I am sure, these websites will help you in your business - one way or another.

(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with any of these websites not do I derive any income from any of these sites - except that I do subscribe to some of these services. Please use  them at your own risk - and let me tell you, I have used them and did not find it 'risky'.)


Look out for the next in series - Useful Websites #19 - and it will be....

Praful, thanks for the post.  A quick correction, the URL you mention should read:, not  I've noticed a few sites that offer craigslist advertising campaigns of all sorts.  I have personally seen leads from this but the trick is doing so systematically, every day, at very specific times of the day.  Good luck with these tools!  Jark.
