I NEED SOME GOOD FEEDBACK: Paying for monthly fees!!!!

Real Estate Agent with LUXRE REALTY 01843333

Hi all.  I am sure many of you have been through this process... I would like to cut to the chase, and see what you all have found to be most effective.

Currently, I have a Blog website through Wordpress.  I pay $29.95 to 1 Park Place for my back office, which is very hard to keep up with, and is WAY out of date..I don't have enough time to imput all the leads I get daily.

I also pay $29.95 to Deverse solutions for a really great IDX mapping solution, which pinpoints local property listings..

I pay for Realtor.com, do AR blogs, am a Rainmaker, am on Trulia, and many ads on CL.

I don't think the 1 park place is working for me, and I want to scale down my monthly fees and use that money for advertising elsewhere.

Any opinions? What has or is working for you?

Sher, looks like you answered your own question about  1Park Place. I try to be every where and if I pay I expect an ROI, I am not a big fan of Realtor.com either depends who you talk to mixed reviews for the ammount of money in my opinion:))

I was trained that you really need a back office, but I don't see the point, unless you have the time or someone to update it once a week...

I think it's going bye bye...

Why are you paying for Realtor.com? and what are you paying?  I tried that once and it took them 6 weeks to try and get me out there and they didn't. It was a 3 month trial which I cancelled within the time frame and they continued to take the $800.00 a month out of my account until I filed a complaint.

I use Point2Agent for my website and don't need all the other stuff - it reaches out to about 45 other websites. AND, Coldwell Banker reaches out to about 60 - so I don't waste money out on the other stuff...waste, big waste.
