The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

10 Tips for Better Online Contact Conversion

Are you getting the absolute most and best results from your ActiveRain, Zillow, and other Agent memberships and sites?  Are there some things you’re doing or maybe not doing that could increase the results and successes you’re currently experiencing?

Many times we feel confident and believe that we are doing all the right things possible, but sometimes as Gary points out in the video below, there might be a better or more efficient way to get even more and better results.

Take it from someone who is successfully active in both the local real estate community as a REALTOR, and online as a successful Agent.  He’s been doing this for over 30 years, and the past two years have really paid off for him as he has fine-tuned his marketing skills and advertising efforts.

In this video, Gary will explain the “Best Practices” and the importance of the following:

  • Using Market Data, Information, and knowledge To Close More Transactions
  • Understanding How Important Your response time is to every Online Contact
  • What to do when you get calls on homes that aren’t for sale or not your listing
  • Having all the right answers is impossible, it’s all the right questions that count
  • Keeping your eyes and ears open for those subtle signs of opportunity
  • Follow-up can mean many things, but what does it mean to YOUR contacts
  • What is the most critical and important activity that produces results online
  • The perception of your role portrayed online within your community is their reality
  • Using creativity with the featured showcase advertising gets you more contacts
  • Recognize the advantages of using Zillow as a Buyer Sales tool and a Listing tool

Enjoy this short 3-minute video and be sure to contact Gary directly if you have any questions at all. 

I think you’ll be convinced from Gary's 2 years of experience converting online contacts into clients, that his tips and advice could be very useful and powerful additions to your online efforts and marketing strategies in 2012.
