Why You Shouldn’t Be Doing Social Media

Woah! Wait…the guy who is always screaming from the rooftops about his Internet Marketing course is telling me NOT to do social media? That’s right. Don’t do social media. Let me back up. I think there is TREMENDOUS opportunity for you as a CT REALTOR® to be a part of some of the largest social networks and drive referral business, but the only way it works is if the rest of your Internet house is in order. It does you know good to have a Facebook page that you can’t update because you don’t have time.

Ditch The Yellow Pages For TRUE Internet Marketing

The days of potential clients thumbing through the Yellow Pages to find a CT REALTOR® are long gone, in fact, many people don’t even have Yellow Pages anymore (myself included.) That doesn’t mean that these types of directories are no longer important, quite the contrary, these directories are holding increasing importance, they have just moved online. Take a step back from the Yellow Pages for a second to understand how people find information on the web. With over 90% of all consumers turning to the web to do research on local products and services, you have to meet them where they want to find you. More then 50% of all searches online are conducted using Google. Google is far and Continue Reading
