What Did You Do Today to Promote Your Business?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Virtually Assisting U

The question I am asked repeatedly from Realtors is how can I get more visitors to my website? My answer is always the same; come up with an online marketing strategy, be consistent and have a marketing budget.

It will take no more effort to get your website found and to increase your online web presence, then to follow the following steps below DAILY!

BLOG DAILY. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BLOG, GET ONE. Website Blogs will showcase your knowledge and experience and convince your website visitors of your value and expertise.  Blogs with carefully researched keywords and phrases embedded in the blog, blog title, images and links will increase your chances of being found on the search engines.

  • The easiest way to get people to your site is by adding new content.  Blogs are designed and set-up to be easy to add new content.

  • People will visit your blog if they find your content in the search engines.  Blogs are SEO friendly and every time you add a new blog post that gives you one more page on the search engines that someone could find and be directed to your site.

  • More people will visit your site if they see you as an information specialist, or industry expert.  Blogs give you the vehicle by which to share your expertise and knowledge.


2nd MOST POPULAR WEBSITE in the WORLD. Are you posting 2 to 3 times a day on your Facebook business page?  This does not take as much time as you think it will. There are ways to share posts from popular publications that will minimize the time you will need in researching post topics or writing your own. 

There are over 750 million active users on Facebook and that number is fast approaching 800 million. This makes Facebook a great place to have a business presence.

When you use your Facebook Fan Page correctly, readers will start seeing you as a valuable resource and they will begin to pre-sell themselves on your service.  When they contact you they will most likely already know they want YOU and they will be ready to do business.  How’s that for a warm/hot lead?!


THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO FASTER WAY TO BUILD YOUR BRAND ON THE WEB, increase traffic to your website, expand your reach and enhance your web presence. Every Buyer and Seller you are trying to attract as a client is on Facebook. Are you? If so, have you optimized your business page to promote your website and enhance your brand? 

If you don’t have a Facebook Fan Page for your business yet, get started today so you can build your Facebook presence before your competition leaves you in the dust!


ACTIVE RAIN BLOG. If you are targeting a community or city, Active Rain provides a platform by which you can actively “Farm” at less cost than direct mail. In addition, Active Rain will bring in referral business from the huge Active Rain network of Realtors.  Another plus in using Active Rain Blogs is that you will get a boost in Google Rankings each time you post a blog.

The goal of blog marketing is to drive traffic to your website(s) and generate leads from potential buyers and sellers with your call-to-actions designed for lead capture on your website. ActiveRain has over 200,000 members who are continually interacting about one major topic “REALESTATE”.

I believe the search engines already rank ActiveRain high in relation to REALESTATE and when you combine a well written blog with the properly researched keywords and post that blog on your ActiveRain you have a very good chance of ranking high in the search engines and showing up on the first results page of GOOGLE.  ActiveRain is a powerful tool to promote listings and brand your profile as a community(s) expert.

Excellent sound advice. It's kinda like exercising -you know you should but we all get lazy. It's easier if you start out simply - like getting in the habit of logging on to active rain every day and then go from there.
