I can guarantee you first page of google..really????

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

Well it finally happened to me! I was doing my floor duty and when alas my phone rang.. Ooh I wonder who is calling, its a new number not programmed in my phone. Perhaps a customer when my ear tilts and I hear this is so and so from xyzpdq marketing. 

Ok I have some spare time so I am going to listen to what this guy is saying. Don't ask me why.. maybe I like to torture myself like that.

He asks me the question, How do you market yourself on the internet? My reply was "umm.. well what do you mean exactly?

How much do you spend to market yourself on the internet on average? he asks

Well, I really don't keep track.. I respond. 

Is it 500.00 to 1000.00 ? 

Me: Definetly less than 1000.00

xyzpdq:Would you believe I could put you on the first page of google for around 500.00. And its not pay per click.

Me: really??  smiling to myself..

I know a secret... he doesn't .... yet.

Me: Well lets see, so your saying you could put me on the first page of google for how much? While at the same time inputting info into google that brings up an amazing phenomenon... I am already on the first page... in fact #3,4,5,6.

I ask him are you at your computer right now? so, if you input my name etc. what do you find right now?

Ummm well Katharine the duchess of wellington and a Katharine Carey of Sun-Mark Properties.. oh and what is below that? and below that? 


Active rain is a beautiful thing.

I guess I am doing alright as far as internet marketing  Hello? Hello, xyzpdq are you there?

And I didn't even get to bring up the Yahoo page...darn.

You see, I input all of my listings on my active rain blog, I blog about random things, I learn about various markets and strategies, I give encouragement, I cry, I laugh and I have fun. I also have a webpage for each of my listings.

Thats it. Sweet and Simple

Hi Agent Carey,

These idiots call me at least twice a week. I call them idiots because they say the same thing to me! They always start by telling me that "I'm NOT in the google search engines!" I'm like.. DUDE! have you looked?

King Nino,

How is the continental breakfast treating you? Watch out for your children hiding those little yogurts in your room..

So I changed the post title.  

I was laughing so hard to myself cause after they talked to me they called the agent in the office next to me and she had no idea that I had so much search power. She probably would have considered..

I had something similiar happen with a web service that was trying to get me to sign up to advertise my listings. I asked her to type in the name of a town and real estate for sale and there was my listing right in front of her.
