Internet Lead Generation

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Realty of Plant City-The McGrath Group

I took my first Internet lead generation class yesterday. I left the class feeling behind the eight ball. This is coming from a 30 year old tech nerd. I felt like I needed to run/not walk from the class and immediately get to work revamping the things I thought I was doing correctly.

One thing is to start blogging. I have never blogged before nor browsed a blog. I am completely amazed at this on-line world. I fear I will quickly become utterly enthralled. It is a great arena to kick ideas around and vent.

Keep it up! It's a ton of work but well worth it in the end.  50% of my business comes from the internet.

Read as much as you can, on SEO. You can find all the information you need, right here on Active Rain. Start small and you'll learn. And now is the perfect time, since the outside blogs have just been launched and Localism is coming out of Beta very soon. I'm sure there will be a lot posts to help.

I am new to the blogging arena.  Started working with OMT mortgage a couple of months ago, and all of the agents that work at Keller Williams in our building say that over 80% of their business comes from the internet.

Statistics say that only 1% of Realtors blog successfully; here at Active Rain, we must be that group!

Once you have an engine in place to process transactions from leads, the focus must be on lead generation to fuel the engine!
