Real Estate Marketing

Heavy Traffic album coverIn my last post, I shared with you the first 3 ways to drive traffic to your real estate website without search engines.  If you missed that post, you can see it at 7 Ways to Drive Traffic To Your Real Estate Web Site Without Search Engine Listings – Part 1.

In today’s article, part 2 of this short series, I am going to give you the next 4 ways to drive traffic to your real estate website.  Let’s get started then, shall we?

Strategy #4 – Joint Ventures

This strategy is one of the most overlooked and ignored strategies out there.  Why?  Because a lot of real estate investors view it as “my competition will steal my leads.”  Let me explain how this strategy works:

Let’s say that you invest in Chicago surrounding areas.  You have a real estate website where sellers can contact you to use your services.  However, you have found that there is a significant amount of people who contact you that want to sell their homes in other areas in Illinois or even other states.  Since you only invest in Chicago surrounding areas, you have to turn these people away.

What if you contacted other real estate investors who have websites and invest in those other areas?  What if you created a joint venture with them?  What if you told them that you can send them some leads for their areas and for every lead you send them or for every house they buy, you get something in return.  Now, if you get paid for this, make sure you obey any and all laws.

Real Estate Marketing

I remember how frustrated I used to get whenever I would go to or and post multiple ads for buyers, investors, sellers, or even my deals; I’d get responses here and there. I’d just keep re-posting the ads that wouldn’t get any responses, hoping they would eventually get me a lead.

Foolishly, I never saved all the ads that worked and I kept concentrating on the ads that had low responses. I kept re-posting to various sites because I thought they were awesome ads and I didn’t understand why nobody would respond…

BTW – If you have also been getting little to no response with your advertising, then keep reading!

I then came across and interesting concept… Split Testing.

Split Testing Can Improve Your Marketing!

split testingI can’t tell you how crucial Split Testing is to your business. Split Testing will usually tell you if you have a good ad or not.

What is Split Testing? Split testing is an extremely powerful strategy for increasing the effectiveness of your marketing. You can use it for almost anything. It is a way of testing two or more marketing campaigns and identifying which one is more effective.
