Dominate Your Competition Online by Building a Strong Internet PresencePosted on October 3, 2012 by
Perhaps you’ve heard, that as a modern day, mobile real estate investor, you need to have a strong Internet presence and the ability to generate online traffic and convert that traffic into leads and those leads into deeds in order to survive and thrive in this new economy and real estate market in which we now live and operate. Just a few short years ago, if you had a real estate investor website and could be easily found on Google, you were far ahead of most investors out there and likely got your fair share of the online leads. These days, a good website alone is no longer enough to adequately compete for leads online.
In order to compete for the coveted top 5 listings on any Google search, we must now use a variety of other Internet and mobile websites, pages and profiles such as blogs, social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and others, videos sites, photos sites, RSS feeds, squeeze pages, classified ad sites, article sites, press releases, social bookmarking and other sites too numerous to mention. You’re probably bombarded with emails on a daily basis about search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing, Internet marketing, social networking, text message marketing and gurus claiming to have systems to do it all for you with no effort on your part. With so many choices and so many gurus telling you what to do and how and where to spend your hard earned money, perhaps you’re confused and just don’t know where to start. If you are, you’re definitely not alone and should keep reading.
I was recently reminded how time consuming and complicated it can be to market a new business online. In June 2012, I started a new “Tampa Real Estate Investors Alliance” (Tampa REIA). On July 12th we had our first meeting and 35 local investors showed up to join us for the very first time. In order to get these people to show up on such short notice, I had to start from scratch and quickly start to build a brand new online presence to reach out to potential members, friends and followers. I’ve done fairly well in a short period of time, but it has been time consuming and could be quite confusing to a newbie without proper guidance and a clear understanding of what needs to be accomplished. Luckily for me, I’ve been doing this for many years and have done a good job keeping up with many of the latest Internet marketing trends.
If you would like me to teach you how you too can quickly establish a strong internet presence and start to dominate your competition online, be sure to join me for a special one day Internet Marketing Workshop on October 13th from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM at the Doubletree Suites located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West, in Tampa, FL.
