Week # 9.  Drive Traffic to Your Web Site


Here are some ways you can enhance your web site traffic:

  1. Blog- blogging provides fresh content on your website. Fresh content will enable you to create "Google Juice" - be ranked higher on Google. If you blog consistently, when consumers search for Seattle Real Estate, your website and/or blog will appear. Make sure your blog is hosted on your website so you receive the traffic. You can be the agent consumers gravitate to for info about your area.
  2. Link your website to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media you use. People will have access to your web site. They will check you out. This provides excellent visibility.
  3. Create a profile (photo, mini-bio and contact info-including a link to your website and/or blog) on Zillow.com and Trulia.com. These sites receive millions of unique visitors each month. This helps you build your brand online and can drive traffic to your website-especially if you have listings.
  4. Send a Just Listed and Just Sold postcard to the neighbors around a new listing and sale. Offer a value proposition: "Would you like to find out what your home is worth, find out FREE at www.ClaudiaSellsSeattle.com.  Send them to your website where they can input their contact info so you can fulfill their request.

These are just a few of the FREE ways you can drive traffic to your website and generate leads.

What are you doing to drive traffic to your website?

Claudia, good tips.  I have been doing this for my real estate clients.  Tracking measurable results has been difficult to do though.

Hi Claudia,

I bought your book around a year ago. I read it twice.

Second reading, I would read a chapter, put that into practice, read the next chapter, put that into practice, read another chapter, put that into practice.

My name now goes for 9 pages on Google!
