The Ingredients of a Proper Real Estate Website – Session 2

Today is Session Two (2) of the 4-Part Series Real Estate Web Strategy Success. The title of today’s session is “The Fundamentals of your Web Container and their SEO Consequences” – we are going to focus on the most important ingredients that your Real Estate Websites must have in order for it to be useful to your customers, as well as visible and index-able by Search Engines.

You may have noticed I used the term Container in the title; I did that deliberately – the term container conveys that your website is a holding place of content and tools, and that it is up to you to make sure you are adding content and tools to connect with your would-be customers. It is unfortunate that 90%+ of Real Estate Websites are passive; meaning that an agent buys a solution, turns it on, and then waits for something to happen – these websites are simply Glorified Business Cards. We have got to do better than that!

 

Here are the main topics I will focus on:

What are the ingredients of Real Estate Websites?

How is IDX best integrated in your Website?

Framing Data vs Not Framing? How about iFraming?

What are the tools of Lead Capture and delayed registration?

How does one integrate Keywords strategically?

Listing Enhancement Tools and Seller Visibility.

What are some examples of visible websites?

The Web Grinder and Homework.

Here is the course description for Session 2:

The Fundamentals of your Web Container: Yes, Yes,… Vendors call them Websites – I prefer the word ‘container’ because it alludes to holding your Marketing information and making it available to your customers. What’s the challenge? If your container is not visible to Google and Search Engines then what you have is purely a Glorified Business Card. You must learn not only what your Website must have to grow organically, but more importantly the habits you must develop Online to grow you influence and generate leads.

1. The Principles of Internet Marketing and SEO: And ‘No,’ Marketing on The Internet is not ‘Internet Marketing!’ Real Estate Agents advertise to drive customers to them, and many still do – but it is getting harder. What is it that you must master in “Search Marketing” so you continue to be the one Sellers and Buyers love to work with. You must go beyond understanding the psychology of your customers – you must also become familiar with the thinking of Search Engines and Ranking. It is this lack of deep understanding of the internet that makes Agents and brokers go on a buying spree of tools with very little results to show for it.

3. Hyperlinks, Landing Pages, and Internet Presence: The Core activities of Internet Marketing is storytelling; when you blog, share videos, upload listings, you are building a narrative on the internet, and the verbs that you must master are Links, or more precisely hyperlinks. But the best Links are called Strategic Links because they connect to properly created Landing Pages within your website and are sticky. Sticky Websites generate leads – you must learn how to create each one of these elements because you are the Real Estate Marketer, and believe or not – they are easy to make…
