What's everyone thinking about promoting their business, services and homes for sale on Craigslist?
Recently I was talking with William a virtual tour provider with Market Media, LLC and somehow the topic of marketing on Craigslist came up. After some debate and more information, I did a little research in my area as to who was using it for real estate and just how they were doing it. Since I am a Realtor and a virtual tour provider, I talked to a top producer in my office that I work closely with and create all her tours and asked her how she felt about it and if it would be ok if I used some of her listings to try it out. She was very excited about it and said that she had tried it before but that it was just too time consuming for her to keep up with. She also stated that she didn't know how to link her tour to it and wanted to know what I would charge her to do this for all of her listings. Hmmm.... does that mean there's possibly another avenue of an untapped market?! Things that make you go hmmmm.
Anyway, after a little effort and a few mistakes- my first ad I unintentionally posted in "real estate services" versus "real estate for sale;" I finally figured it out, placed my first ad and have been very happy with the results! Which is another great thing about being powered by Real Tour Vision- Tour Track 2.0. It has updated tracking technology that can report not only the number of hits your virtual tour is getting but where it's coming from and when! I just posted my ad yesterday afternoon and in less than 24 hours the tour had already gotten 29 hits, with 28 of them coming from Craigslist. That's almost 50% of the hits that I've had in the past 10 weeks, in one day alone! If that's not exposure, I don't know what is! See the results for yourself.
