Realtor Websites and "Web Presence" in Your Community

Real Estate Agent with TREGO REALTY

Of the 900+ Realtors in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area,  very few have any kind of "web presence" in the community.  Their websites are static and only provide information.  They are not geared towards immediate feedback, drip email campaigns, links to related blogs, etc...  In my short time as a Realtor, I have worked hard on having a web presence in my community, and it's finally starting to pay off.  My little fifteen page website ranks first page for two key search phrases and in the top ten for the third search phrase.  I've done this all by myself, and no doubt, Active Rain is a big part of this.  I've received four leads from my website, and so far these leads have not gone through all the way, but that's not the point.  The fact is I am getting leads, and eventually (it's a numbers game), some of these leads will pan out.

I'm also excited about a new blog I've started   The title of the weblog if Where is Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  I want everyone who searches for anything Cedar Rapids to know that I am the expert in my community in everything Cedar Rapids, ( history, real estate, neighborhoods, etc...)  I plan on interviewing people in the community and having podcasts also.  I'm very excited about my future, and suffice it to say, things are slowly, and I mean very deliberately starting to turn around for the good.

What is your WEB PRESENCE in your community.  Is your website static or dynamic?

I am a total web geek and even did computer stuff professionally prior to Real EState. I am obsessed with getting a great web presence. I have had pretty good luck in a short amount of time. I am seeing my AR blogs showing up also now. Very cool!

How great for you to be in an area where people aren't understanding the full power of the internet yet! Run with it Christopher & never look back!

Seriously I think I am the only one in my area in this field with any kind of internet exposure. People are getting tired of seeing me online, but I am happy because it makes them remember me.
