Darren Barefoot and Julie Szabo run Capulet Communicationsï¿¼together. They do web marketing and social media relations, mostly for technology companies. They are based in Vancouver, but they spent most of 2007 working and living in Malta. Their plan for 2008 is to live in Morocco.

Many real estate agents think that you can just launch a website and it will work its "magic" and bring in the business. This is not how the internet works. Having a website is just like having a storefront. It takes work to make it work. (there are ways to get the work done without you doing it... see below)
I have been speaking with a new client of ours, Linda Linfoot, about her blog and how she can gain more exposure for her website as soon as possible. Her website is new, her domain is brand new, she is a new Realtor and she wants her site to get indexed in the search engines right away.
