Tag Archives for " SEO for agents "
SEO is back with a vengeance! We are seeing some amazing results on page one and page 2 with brand new websites and blog content.
Then I went back to older sites to see how they are doing and they also are showing up on page one.
Google made what most would think is an insignificant change not in their algorithm ( although Google is always updating their algorithm) but rather in the application of serving up the algorithm.
This little seemingly insignificant shift appears to be favoring those of us who are not huge brand names.
Before Google invented their zoo of animals, panda, penguin, pigeon- most of us were rocking it with our SEO. Then with the zoo animals being set loose to wreak their havoc a lot of people lost their income, their leads and their positions almost overnight. The winners through the zoo rotation were the big name brands.
The little guy, small business owners, real estate agents, dentists and marketers took a huge hit because even the past head huncho over at Google said they needed to clean up the ‘cesspool' on the internet and favor the big brands.
Over time the shift tended back again toward quality content and long form content. Then a very interesting shift happened that many people would not notice.
When I started the building the latest 3 websites for clients- we noticed there was a shift back to good content and keywords, so much so, that well, you will need to get on this Free webinar where I will show you what I am talking about and also tell you what we believe may be the reason we are getting these sudden boosts of page one rankings!
I ran a few tests on some brand new niche websites I am building for our real estate company and it held true again.
If you are in real estate- how would you like to rank ahead of Zillow?
If you are a dentist, how would you like to rank ahead of the big directories?
While Google favors big brands, I will show you what we see is happening where the small time brands are able to position themselves out in front!!!
I can’t wait to share what we are finding with you!!!

In the 3rd video after the training I will explain what we do in Listing Experts Academy and all the upgrades to this one of a kind training program.
This is very exciting as we get ready to RELAUNCH the LIVE webinar trainings in Listing Experts Academy.
On October 8th at 10 a.m. the doors will open for Listing Experts Academy for a very short time!
Because these are live webinar trainings that we will be starting..
I am limiting the number of new members. I will only allow 23 new members to join us in our best academy ever, Listing Experts Academy.
There is no other training like this specifically for listing agents in the real estate industry.
Listing Experts Academy was created for real estate agents who want to get more listings from their:
Traditional marketing is on its way out and internet marketing and positioning your brand is where the future of marketing is going. Content marketing is the fastest growing occupation and the most requested hire of companies today. Content marketing services charge between $3,000 and $20,000 per month for small to mid-size companies. So for a solo real estate agent you are looking at about $3,000 per month. This is on the low side.
So moving forward you have 2 choices- hire a content marketer in-house or outsource the work OR learn how to do this work yourself and then delegate the parts of it that make sense to outsource.
I am so excited to share these 3 free videos with you and hope you gain a lot of knowledge from them!
Listing Experts Academy Members are ROCKING the SERPS!!!
This is so exciting. There is nothing that makes a coach or teacher more excited than witnessing and being a part of the student's (members) successes.
When you follow the steps that are set forth in a systematic fashion you get results.
Taking your listings back has been a huge part of Listing Experts Academy for over a year now. It is awesome to see LEA members' listings on page one on Google.
There was a time when SEO gurus would make fun of you if you tried to rank your listings on page one for address. Well, they can laugh while you get more listings and more buyers because now it is very important to have your listings ranking by address.
Buyers drive by your listings. They don't want to talk to you because they may not be ready to buy yet, they don't want the pressure and a thousand other reasons so they don't call you.
But they do Google the address!
Take back your listings.
Then there are your niche keywords. Can you overcome the big box sites on the SERPS?
Of course you can! You do this by knowing your niche, speaking directly to your avatar and engaging them into your conversation. This builds trust, then the best part of all, the prospective buyer or seller call you because they actually want to work with you.
That does not happen with lead generation done mega style or with PPC campaigns.
This happens one customer at a time. One call at a time. It works.
But don't take my word for it… check out this climbing up the SERPS by some of our Listing Experts Academy members.
This member has been applying SEO steps for only 2 months:
The following screenshot is for a brand new website – still in the design phase, already picked up by Google for our keywords.
We are on page 1 already in just 2 weeks after designing the home page and blog page:
After doing our listing syndication steps in #Take Back Your Listings and after ActiveRain got it's own domain back,
check out the SERPS! #6 and #7 is our ActiveRain blog and # 9 and #10 is our brand new website I am building for this community:
Here is another Listing Experts Academy member's review of how she is doing with the academy:
No, this is not a get rich scheme. This is not a short cut product. It does take effort and consistency.
I add new content all the time to Listing Experts Academy.
The latest addition has been my live Fast Track SEO training modules. We are currently on Module 3 so there is still plenty of time for you to get in on the live action and Q & A sessions!
I also have some surprise trainings coming up!

Open House Success System to Get More Listings and Buyers
We are doing a BETA program with an Open House Success System from a very successful REALTOR® who closed over 600K last year in commissions using this system he has developed over the last few years.
This will be the first time anyone outside of his successful office will learn his system.
He reached out to me to help me put a course together for his system that we can teach online.
Because we need testers in this BETA system he has offered to offer this to my Listing Experts Academy members!
Listing Experts Academy members during this one time launch of the BETA system will not have to pay a DIME to go through this excellent program.
Once we launch the Open House Success System it will not be available for free to anyone including Listing Experts Academy members.
This is not for everyone.
There are prerequisites to make this a success:
1. Make sure you have an open mind about open houses and can see the potential.
2. Choose ONE gated community that allows open house signs.
3. The gated community needs to have homes $500,000 and above in sales and market values.
4. You must be able to follow scripts and instructions.
5. You must be willing to be accountable.
6. You will be required to provide feedback during the BETA testing of the course, webinars, materials, etc.
You can learn how to get up to 20% of the market share in one single neighborhood.
Join Listing Experts Academy before Wednesday in order to be a part of our BETA Open House Success System.
Joining Listing Experts Academy now gives you a Lifetime Membership in the academy. We have 9 core modules on SEO, branding, listing syndication, expired listings, listing presentations, websites and more. Then we have a ton of bonus trainings!
Bonus trainings include YouTube SEO, Image SEO, Advanced SEO techniques, branding techniques and so much more.
Now until next week Wednesday also included is the Open House Success System where you could very well do over 6 figures this year from open houses. No internet work required. No SEO required. No blogging required. Some Facebook ads maybe:).
The Open House Success System will be recorded for you in case you can't make it to one of the 3 webinars where he will be teaching his system to us.
Here is part of my interview with Steven:
Steven has been a Realtor for 17 years.
Just like many of you he spent his first years chasing clients all over the GTA. He spent lots of money on ads and chased fsbos and at a drop of the hat and he would drive over one hour to try and take a listing. Steven who had learned sales from his father who was a top sales rep for Encyclopedia Britannica. Steven learned the importance of having a presentation book& scripts and always using them every time he made a presentation. Steven did relatively well, earning over $100,000 to $150,000 per year, but he felt he should be able to work less hours and make more.
“Soon I was closing one in 4 attendees for appointments to sign both a buyer agency agreement and a listing agreement for the sale of their current home.
My first year with a super team I earned over $400,000 in commissions (that is on a 50/50 split with the team leader)”
“I hired 12 agents, spent over 10,000 per month in ads, generated lots of leads, but the agents did not have a good closing ration and I found myself driving all over the city helping them close for contracts, and on the phone taking ad calls, at the end of 2 years I was burnt out and had not made millions like I had dreamed.
So about 2 years ago I decided to just be a local agent in my community where I live. If I earned 200 to 300k per year I would be happy.”
“But a funny thing happened. I modified my open house strategy slightly and very quickly I became one of the dominant listing agents in my area. Sellers were calling me in for a free evaluation along with 3 or 4 of the big boys & girls who had worked the area for 15 years or more and had large full page ads in the local paper and billboards and weekly postcards, etc.
I figured out a way to win against the more experienced and moneyed completion, without a large advertising budget. Within 18 months I had become one of the dominant listing agents in my community and earned over $600,000 in 2014 mostly by just working 4 hours per week at my opens and having sellers call me to list their home.”
Before I take on any project I do my due diligence about the viability of the project. I am very excited to put together and launch Steven's' Open House Success System.
Make sure you get signed up in Listing Experts Academy before next Wednesday so you can participate in the BETA Open House Success System.
Contact me by text at 561-502-1577 to get into Listing Experts Academy so you can be a part of the Open House Success System. Text your name and email address please. Thanks!

Do you have an online marketing strategy?
The data clearly shows according to research that Copyblogger has done that only 39% of B2B small businesses have a written content marketing strategy.
I will venture to assume that for B2C small businesses, it will be lower or about the same.
I hear it all the time:
“I know I need to blog but I don't have the time.”
“I know I need to delegate but I don't have the funds.”
“I know I need to have a plan for my business, but I don't know how to do it.”
” I know I need to have an online business strategy but I don't know where to start.”
Sometimes these excuses are based in fear and sometimes they are based in simply not knowing what steps to take.
You can work through it. You can be successful in getting listings, leads and referrals from blogging, search engine marketing, SEO strategies, networking, content marketing and developing relationships online.
You may be attending a lot of great classes and webinars and walk away with notebooks full of great ideas but you know that you will just be putting all those notes on your desk and not really adding them to your content marketing strategies.
Some people feel overwhelmed with the amount of information there is to digest when putting together your online marketing campaigns.
We offer strategy sessions. You don't need to get into my full coaching programs in order to take advantage of developing your business strategy.
It is almost the end of January in 2015 ~ how is your strategy working for you so far this year?
Let's fine tune your existing strategy or create a new one so that you can actually make sense of all the stuff you need to do with your blogging, networking and social engagement.
I have 3 strategy session times available on Thursday and 2 on Friday.
Please email me at coachkaterina ( at sign) gmail.com to request your strategy session or text me at 561-502-1577 with your name and email address.
Looking forward to helping you get on the right track for this great new year!
