Many of you know I have been transcending from one template site to another Point2Agent site that will allow me more flexibility. My goal is to have a local website that is attractive and allows me to promote all my residential, commercial, land and investment property.
I am not so interested in making it a "Pretty" site. Instead I want to make it a powerful "Information Based site".
Too many of us have been lured by the desire to have a "WOW" site with flash, Color, and many "Pretty" Features. Instead of going for the "Pretty" I am focused this time around for making a lead generating machine.
I have been told by a few web masters that "Template Sites" are not where it's at and that I need to spend thousands on a custom site. There is an AR member in Westminster, Colorado that would beg to differ.
Michael J. Clarkson is an AR member that has a Myers Internet Inc. template site that cost him $199 to setup and $35 per month to service. Hundreds of thousands of Realtors have these kind of sites and 99.9% of them are not generating many leads at all. What's the difference with Michaels?
Realtor Magazine was so impressed with the results of Michaels site that they interviewed him in this months Realtor Magazine Issue.
Michael's website milehighhomehunter is getting attention because in the past 60 days he received 70 leads all without using "pay-per-click" with Google or Yahoo.
Michael was quoted as saying he is using strong search engine optimization couple with meaningful rich content.
Instead of going for the pretty or "WOW" site Michael has gone for the "Information Site" and used smart Search Engine Optimization techniques.
My point is you don't have to spend $3,000 or more and $200+ per month to have a lead generating machine. Build an "Information Packed" site that people will want to visit and get your site optimized.
- Consider Point2Agent for a template site that is really user friendly and has some powerful tools
- Go to leadwebdesigners to get your site optimized
Forget about the "WOW" and give users a reason to visit your site.
