If you want to find clients online you need to build a real estate digital marketing platform.
There’s really no way around it. Your clients are online so you need to meet them online – if you want their real estate business.
To help you get past the frustration and expense of setting up your own digital marketing platform I’ve created a Digital Marketing Guide for Real Estate. It’s a practical guide that shares the exact tools and software I use for my own digital marketing platform.
You can download the guide right here!
In particular the guide will show you:
Why you need to be a digital marketer
How to generate leads online
How to convert leads by focusing on getting your visitor’s contact details
How to incubate and manage leads so they turn into clients (and commission checks)
