It isn’t uncommon for a client to leave the whole project completely up to us. Understandably, they sell the real estate and we are hired to sell them. Most real estate websites are just out of the box – some you can customize, others you can’t. Most aren’t user friendly to the agents trying to set them up, nor are they user friendly to the potential clients that come to use them. Many companies also sell on the promise of getting you more leads, just by having a website. It just doesn’t quite work that way.
Why we use WordPress…it is simple, WordPress allows easy updating of your website. Not only that, as the technology and design trends change and evolve, your site easily changes and evolves to go along with it. Do you use Twitter or Facebook? Create one post on your blog and it goes right to your social media sites without you having to do a thing.
Just remember, your website is your online business card. It needs to reflect you as an agent, provide helpful information and be user friendly to keep people coming back. Most of the real estate websites out there offer you a way to look like everyone else, take it to the next level with a custom site that works for you!
