My expertise for your info...

 

When people visit my website, and want to know why they should share their info, to utilize my page, here it is:  I'm an expert at helping people find their place here.

Kathy Schowe -Owner/REALTOR®

I have lived in the desert area for over 20 years and have been lucky enough to play almost all the golf courses here. I am an expert at matching a client with a club or development. Each community within the valley has its own special niche, and through years of living the desert life~ I have come to know what each area ‘feels’ like.

Some people are looking for very social clubs with many activities throughout the season… others just want a “golf” club without all the extras. By learning about you and your family, I can point you in the right direction, so you can find– not only the home of your dreams, but the community that will keep you happy there!

There are many choices here in our valley, and it is hard to know which one would be a good fit.  These are really important, and expensive decisions.  

By sharing their info... they get my expertise.  They get my experience from years of living, playing, and working in the desert. Together we can find the place that will work the best for them!

I think it is a pretty good deal! 

 

***But, what if you don't want to share your info... will you click away?  After getting some feedback on this post- I wondered if requiring registration does more harm than good. 

What are your thoughts?

Your pictures sometimes make me want to leave the beach, Kathy, and that says a lot!  Your market expertise is just one reason buyers & sellers in the La Quinta area should be giving you a call.

Kathy,

There is a constant debate as to whether or not to leave info on a web site.  With privacy issues looming around every corner, we usually advise our clients not to ask their traffic to sign up.  We practice this ourselves by not monitoring who reads our posts, when they sign up on the web site.  

This has not proven to be a deterrent for any of our clients as they still get inquiries via their websites, because people are impressed with the ease of use, the brand, the display of properties and the richness of information.  

When you ask someone to sign up, it is often an inclination to click away and I do that quite often, as do our friends...A

Ron & Alexandra Seigel ,  Interesting perspective on sharing info.  I could also set up my site so anyone can freely use it without registering. After reading your comment, I may just do that!  Thanks for your input and "expertise"!

Kathy I"m with John - your photos are spectacular.  As for signups I'd suggest having a good spam control in place because you're going to get a lot of junk. We were bombarded for bit until we figure out how to hole up the dike.

I find people have no problem putting in some information if I provide them some specific value and benefit for doing so.  My site is set up to ask for information with the second click inside my site. I loose very few people.

I am with Ron & Alexandra Seigel  I never ask for anyone to sign in...so I might not get all the potential buyers or potential sellers...the reality, just because we put them on a drip campaign does not guarantee that they will be come clients...just thinking out loud, Endre

p.s.: those who reach out I do not need to do anything but list their property or just start selling them something...

I would love to be in a place where I can play 18 year round.  That won't happen however.

Kathy, I find that when you don't force registration the lead quality is much higher.  You get fewer Daffy Ducks, fake phone numbers and email addresses. My office has multiple websites and we do force registration on one of them and it coincidentally has the lowest conversion rate and with highest number of false contact info provided by the lead.

Kathy - I think it depends on the price point.  In a luxury market the more money people have, the less they want to share their info and that buyer/seller profile appreciates quality, information, and not being forced.  I don't force registration.  People who contact me are serious, and I don't waste time on forced sign-up leads.  Your leads may go down in volume, but your conversion rate is going to go up with serious leads that want to use YOU!

Kathy, if explained like this, how can they go wrong filling out info? The photos alone and your explanation of your expertise is so GRAND, there is no downside, if they can trust you fairly quickly....sometimes hard to do online, I guess. 

I haven't seen your website, but this blog alone is really spectacular!

Kathy - first of all. I agree with John that you pictures are a magnet.  Then, secondly, going to a new area is very intimidating and you words describing your knowledge and connection with the community provides a desire to call you.
