Having a mobile-responsive website is more important than ever. The National Association of Realtorsí survey of homebuyers reported in 2013 that 89 percent of home shoppers use a mobile device for the duration of their property research... and that number has only risen since then.
Your clients want to easily find you and search for homes from their mobile devices. The best way to give them what they need is with a mobile-responsive website. Mobile-responsive websites work on every device - from a desktop computer to an iPad to a smartphone - and provide a seamless experience for clients.
RLS2000's Social Pro Gold package offers a completely mobile-responsive website and blog along with automated social media marketing. Take a look at everything that Social Pro Gold can do and sign up for a demo, or check out our webinar to learn more about what mobile-responsive websites can do for you, and make†mobile part of your 2016 strategy.
Check out everything these flyers can do. We want to showcase this excellent custom flyer created by our Social Pro Gold client Russ Rougeau. Russ customized this flyer for his Veterans' Rebate Program, his way of saying "thank you" to those who have served. Russ loves working with veterans (and he'll gladly take any referrals you may have for Veteran clients). Your flyers will look great without any customization, but we make it simple for you to take your marketing to the next level†and customize your flyers to meet your marketing needs.
If you haven't tried out the Marketing Flyers yet, just log in to your MLS Property Finder account and go to the Marketing tab. To learn more, you can also read the press release or watch our on-demand webinar.

The overwhelming majority of homebuyers start their search online, which makes it more important than ever to make sure your real estate marketing on the web is on point. Here are a few tips to improve your online marketing presence and attract more leads:
1. Use Links: This is link-building 101: Always link back to your own website whenever possible! Make sure all of your social media profiles, e-newsletters, email signatures, and yes, even printed materials, have your website on them. Link to your website whenever possible to drive clients back to your website. If you're writing blog posts, reference and link to other posts you've written when it makes sense.
2. Maintain Your Blog: Fresh blog content boosts your ranking in Google and increases the number of searches your site may be returned for. For Social Pro Gold clients, RLS2000 automatically posts listing updates and general interest articles to your blog for you, and it's great to supplement these posts and give your blog a boost by creating local, personalized content for your readers. Try a quick post about your observations on the local market or an upcoming event in one of the towns you serve.
3. Experiment with Online Tactics: Don't be afraid to shake up your posts. Try some video blogs, or post something different to Facebook than you normally would. A small change might give you a big boost. The beauty of online marketing is that you can track how well a strategy is doing. If a new strategy isn't working as well as you'd hoped, try something else.
Online marketing is effective and affordable when done right. Take a few minutes today to review and polish your online presence.
