Three things I wish my website could Contest

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Select Realtors-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC SP98364271

Three things I want for my new website and I want it now-PLEASE!  I am going to keep in plain and simple. Three things that I want for my new website are three things that will keep my prospect on my website and make them keep coming back for more AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN until that they will have no choice but to call me. I want something that will keep them away from those other third party real estate aggregators site-You know their names. I am not giving them no love-SORRY! Why should I?



1. Know when they are searching on my website-I want to know their every real estate search. Everytime people are searching on my website,I want to know whether I should call,e-mail or text them after they have left my website.


2. Convert Social Media Customers into Clients-(Social Media Marketing/Drip Campaign)-I want a site where I can have a drip marketing campaign for my Facebook,Twitter,LinkedIn,Yelp,Youtube etc followers and convert them into clients. Ex: Any of my Social Media followers who mentions anything on their Social Media profiles pertaining to Real Estate,send them information via text or e-mail pertaining to what they posted on their Social Media site from your website. Ex: Real Estate Articles-FROM MY WEBSITE,Houses on sale in your area of choice.



3. Give them more of what they want-(Walkscore like app built into my Wordpress Websitebox site)-We all know that close to 90% of first time home buyers start their home buying search online. Some buyers will go on your website EVERYDAY for probably three months if not more before they will call you. But once they leave your website,what are you sending them that day? For example If a prospect visits my site and views three three bedroom,two bedroom baths with a basement homes in a certain area for around $400,000,I want an automated e-mail or text sent to them thanking them for visiting my website. I also want more properties in the $400,000-$450,000 price range within a 10 mile radius sent to them along with information on the neighborhoods of those certain properties. Ex:Walk score like app built into my website so that they won't leave your website. And if they view some articles/blogs on home buying process,send them some articles pertaining to what they just viewed on my website FROM MY WEBSITE. Key is to keep them on your site and away from signing up with your competitors website.



BONUS: Turn my website into a Real Estate Search Engine/Nationwide Real Estate IDX: I want to know in real time what people are typing to find my website and where my prospects are coming from. If there is a way you can do that,I am in. Also since some people are not just home buyers but out of town and out of country real estate investors. So I want them to have access to listings nationwide with full USA coverage. You can service your local buyers and refer out-of-area leads to other agents. 


Well this is what I want in my new Websitebox Site. Hope I get it.



 ActiveRain and WebsiteBox Contest: I Wish My Website Did This.......


3 Things You Wish Your Website Could Do




A new company recently launched at the Inman News Real Estate Connect Event in January. WebsiteBox is a simple solution for creating a website that gives you a complete web solution for a one-time payment of $99.




We talk a lot on ActiveRain about having an effective web solution for your business. A real estate agent needs a customized web solution which includes IDX, the process by which listings are fed to your website from your local MLS.




An effective IDX can be the difference between the success and failure of your online marketing efforts. Any agent who has been successful generating leads and business online will no doubt tell you that their IDX product was the central focus of their online marketing efforts.




One of the best parts of the new WebsiteBox offering (other than the fact that it's a one time payment of $99) is how they have taken the Apple model of 'apps' and applied it to a real estate website. Their vision is that if you want something for your website, you pay for it when you want it. You don't pay a recurring fee, for a huge application that has tons of add ons that you will never use. You get a site that has all the essentials including integrated MLS Search (IDX) and powerful CRM database, and if you want extra bells and whistles, you can pick and choose what those are.




WebsiteBox product offering




Tell Us What You'd Like Your Website to Do




So for our contest, we'd like to ask you, what things besides an integrated MLS/IDX search and powerful CRM would you like to have included on your website?




The team at WebsiteBox is building an IDX solution that fits the needs of real estate agents. They want to know what your needs are. Besides IDX and CRM, what would you want in the website of your dreams? Content written by professional copywriters? A responsive website that is mobile and tablet friendly? Designs created by professional graphic designers? The ability for people to register using their Facebook account?




Back when we were running our own brokerage, we'd come up with ideas every week that we wanted implemented into our IDX (our developers hated us, haha). We couldn't build in every idea, but the team at WebsiteBox is aiming to do just that. Give real estate agents the tools on their IDX that will help them generate more leads, convert more leads and close more transactions. That's the purpose of a great IDX. Those three things.




So tell us, what do you wish your website did? What would be that one killer tool that you wish your website offered?




The Challenge:




*Write a blog post that details 3 features or tools that you wish were included as a part of your website




*Include a link to this post, announcing the challenge, somewhere in the body of your post. (so other people reading your posts have a chance to participate)




*Once you have completed your post, leave a link to your post in the comment section of this post.




*We would love if you would consider following WebsiteBox on Facebook and on Twitter. They are very active on both social networks. In addition, if you do follow them on Twitter, and you send them a link to your post on Twitter (make sure to use @WebsiteBox) we will give you an extra 500 points.




*Posts must be submitted by Monday, February 25th at 11:59pm Pacific Time




The Prizes:




*Each submission will receive 1500 ActiveRain points. Points will be awarded in the week following the conclusion of the contest.




*Five winners will be picked at random to receive a FREE WebsiteBox account.




*Website Box may turn your idea into an app that is offered to all WebsiteBox users!

Lanre, this has been an interesting challenge to see what others desire. As you said, our #1 goal should be to keep consumers on our site. No IDX listings, no leads.
