The Best Guide to Real Estate Marketing for Realtors

Realtors - Increase Your Website’s Reach and Rank with a Better Domain Name (Step 4 of 10 - How to create a Farm Area Website)

Rank Higher on Search Engines with a keyword-rich domain name.

Your website’s domain name should be an integral part of your search engine optimization strategy. Google and other search websites will look at your website address - the domain name - and use it to rank your site in their search results. That’s why a keyword-rich domain name should be one of your first steps in creating a real estate niche or neighbourhood website.

So, what domain should you pick? How to decide?

PRO TIP #1: Domains should always cost less than $15 per year. If you’re paying more than that, shop elsewhere. Look to Godaddy.com or 10dollar.ca for low-cost domain registrar options.

When building a “niche” or “farm area” real estate website, ensure that you can get the data feed of listings for that specific target area onto the website that you’re building.

I apologize in advance for getting a little techy here, but there are a few tech items to check off the list if you’re going to create a successful niche website, and the top of that list is: LISTINGS.

If you’re in the pursuit of a real estate website that easily tops Google’s search results and stays there, with minimal input from you, you should absolutely have listings that auto-populate on your website.

Let me give you some examples, because I want you to see how powerful it can be.

So, you want a highly-ranked “niche” or “farm area” website for your real estate business?

First things first, you have to decide what you are going to target, and make sure you have a clear shot at showing up high on Google’s search rankings. So, you should take the time to do this right.

The simple answer is:

  • Brainstorm.
  • Search Google.
  • Get narrow.
  • Check out the competition.
  • Pick something.

Not as simple as it sounds, is it? This is a crucial step, so I'll elaborate:

Websites Serve Better When They Serve Less (Step 1 of 10 - How to create a Real Estate Neighbourhood Website)

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 4, 2016 10:05:00 AM / by UberDara posted in niche websites

Squelch the urge to have a generic real estate website.

These articles are meant to be consumed by Realtors, but honestly, this is just good internet marketing advice. Or even just good marketing advice.

We’ve all heard the adage: “You can’t be everything to everybody all of the time.” It’s stellar business advice. Yet tough to follow.

I’ve learned the hard way, taking on a client or a project that wasn’t a good fit. I’d then spend, the next however many months dragging my feet when it came time to working on the project or communicating with the client.

It’s a tough lesson we sometimes have to experience for ourselves.

It’s one we have to learn about our websites, as well. The really good Realtor websites aren’t trying to be everything to everybody.

10 Steps to Leap to the Top of Google’s Search Results. Within a month.

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 3, 2016 2:03:00 PM / by UberDara posted in niche websites

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

That’s right, Realtors, I’m going to share with you ten quick and easy ways to get your website to the top of Google’s search results.

It’s not a trick. I’ve done this over and over again. Let me explain.

Agents frequently ask me, “how do I get to be the first agent that shows up on a Google search?” My answer is: “You’re asking the wrong question”.

The question should be, “what can I get to the top of Google’s search results for?”

If you've ever searched Google for something super generic, like “Vancouver real estate,” you'll see tens of millions of results. Straight from the source, “about 24,300,000 results” said Google, as I was writing this post.

If you had ever hoped to have your name at the top of such a wildly overpopulated search term, please…keep reading. I’m aiming to change your mind with a new thought process.

Yet, we all know that to succeed in business, we should not try to be “everything to everybody” . Good advice that hasn’t stopped anyone yet. In fact, very few know how to avoid doing that with their online presence.

Step out of the box and into the living rooms of your clients.

What if you broke beyond your generic business card website? Moved beyond that “about me” text that only sheds a tiny bit of light on who you really are and who you are passionate about serving, or what kinds of properties you are passionate about selling?

Want the ear and opinion of an expert on this topic (for free)?

Book a 10 minute brainstorm session  all about Niche websites, with Dara Sklar.

The world doesn’t need another website that talks only to “buyers” and “sellers” as if that’s just two types of people, when in fact they are way more than that...

Buyers could be buying condos, townhouses, houses, first homes, investment properties, recreational or vacation homes, divorcing, upsizing, downsizing…

Sellers could be relocating, cashing out, moving on “up”, empty-nesting, diversifying...
