7 Ways To Get More Contacts on Zillow

Everyone in real estate already knows that it takes "Contacts" and "Appointments" to create customers and closed transactions. Lead cultivation and lead generation are the daily staple in real estate. Agents tell me everyday that their success comes from having a strong internet presence, experience, local knowledge, a good CRM, a large database, and the ability to convert.

Zillow is a great resource for helping with all the above so start with creating a free profile.

7 Ways To Get More Contacts From Zillow?

  1. Provide Valuable Local Information

    Fill your profile with information that buyers and sellers find valuable and useful. Provide information and links to things like schools, weather, local events, transportation, tips,
    local resources, and more. It shows you are the expert in that location and by being helpful, it could result in a potential client contacting you. Many agents have confirmed that adding a personalized video to their profile has also increased their volume of contacts.

  2. Get Client Reviews
    (and Not Just for Closed Transactions)

    Reviews work and you don’t ONLY have to get reviews from clients who bought or sold a home with you. There are multiple options available for requesting reviews from past clients (see the choices below). Take advantage of allowing others promote you on your profile. Let them share their experiences about you with your viewers.  This is a powerful feature that works.

If increasing your contacts is really of interest, then feel free to download the rest of this post in a PDF eBook below, there is some great tips and information available and it's totally free.
