I was invited to join in on a conference call two weeks ago and the topic was lead generation and marketing. The moderator made a comment that surprised me and he mentioned that one of the sites that has brought him and other top producers good results is MySpace.com He said in spite of the negative publicity with the media several Realtors are receiving good leads from My Space and he himself has done quite well. He encouraged Realtors to use it and setup a profile. I always thought MySpace was for kids and the moderator assured everyone is was also for old farts like me as well! Are any of you using MySpace? The moderator said that a large percentage of MySpace subscribers are and will be getting old enough to be home buyers. He encouaged us all to get our profiles posted so that these kids think of us when it comes time to buy a home. I would love to hear your feedback and if you have had any luck with MySpace as a Realtor.
On another note, about 3 months ago one of my sellers posted his home I had listed on Ebay with a link back to my old site (I didn't have my new one ready yet). I have been shocked that over 500 visitors have visited my old site via Ebay. I have done nothing with my old site for nearly 4 months and it has shot up to #6 on Google for Nampa Idaho real estate! It has jumped 22 spots on Google alone with the Ebay hits. I know that has done it because I have not used the site or updated it at all.
My point is that when we have a lot of visitors link to our sites from other major sites this gets the search engines attention and I am living proof of it. Many know I am a big advocate for Craig's List and I have done well with it. It to has helped me jump the search engine rankings as well.
