There are so many options out there - with or without all the extras and up sales.
What do you do? Where do you go? Do you really need your own website now days if your company has all the accessibility for the World Wide Web, IDX, Agent webpage, etc. Clients have so many options out there.
Even if you're a tech-savvy agent and pay for advertising on specialty websites like Realtor.com. Is it worth just advertising listings that way versus a website? How effective are the websites on lead generations and client capture? What about all the promise to have the most current information on your website only to find that its "specialty-generic" info instead. Where's the customer service once you purchase your site. I have heard so many differnt positives and negatives on teh way agents are treated.
What should you do - buy a website and hope you can get it up the search engine ladder where potential clients not only find your website but continue to use it as their source of info and listings? What's a good website builder - why? Are you happy with them? Is it worth it?
Or advertise your listings in all the other different avenues of internet activity.
I appreciate your honest opinions! Thanks for your help!!
