Mountain of Agents is a directory where people can easily and quickly search for real estate agents. All they have to do is put in their zip code, and all of the agents in their area that have Mountain of Agents profiles will pop up. Having a profile on this site can present a great advantage to you and your business, because not only is an account free to set up, but it also has a great ratings system, an opportunity to promote your other sites on your profile, and a unique opportunity to “claim your zip code.” Here are just a few of many reasons to set up a Mountain of Agents profile:
It’s free to create a profile. Unlike some other agent directories, where you have to pay for a listing, you can set up a Mountain of Agents profile for no cost. On your profile, you can put your photo, links to your website and social media sites, and you can even set up a Twitter stream directly on your profile. Not only will people get to see your basic contact information, but they’ll also get to read your tweets while they browse. It’s a unique directory experience not found anywhere else.
They’ve enhanced their ratings system. Mountain of Agents has integrated with Facebook to make sure any ratings you receive on your Mountain of Agents profile are seen in as many ways as possible. By integrating with a social networking site, you’re insuring that the people who search for you while logged into Facebook can rate you. This means that any ratings you get are guaranteed to be both unique and varied. The majority of people who surf the web are logged into Facebook while doing so, which creates great opportunities for you! Another great feature is that each time someone rates you, it will show up on their wall, announcing their endorsement to all of their Facebook friends! This can only boost and create more positive publicity for you.
You can “claim” your zip code.It can be hard to stand out in the crowd on most real estate directories, but on Mountain of Agents, you can do so easily if you’re willing to pay a small fee. When you “claim” your zip code, you become a featured agent, meaning that your profile shows up in the search results at the top of the list, in gold. This is the perfect way to put yourself at the top of the search ranking, and it’s easy to do.
Besides just being another great way to market yourself on the internet, Mountain of Agents creates a unique, consumer-friendly directory experience that shows agents in the best light possible. To learn more about how you can use Mountain of Agents in order to grow your online presence, please watch our webinar! We’d love to show you how easy it is to set up a profile. Of course, if you’re pressed for time but still want to try out the site, just ask your real estate virtual assistants to help! We’d be happy to lend a hand.
Have a great day!
