>> Isn't this the same as a real estate board?
No, our service is more like an online version of the classified ads in a newspaper, except we deliver information globally and in real time with links to web sites of members, and more.
We support real estate boards and have served on MLS Committees. However some say 90% of apartment buildings are not on real estate boards, 90% of shopping centers are not on real estate boards, and this is true for all kinds of businesses, land, office buildings, hotels and much more. In fact with residential a large portion is on real estate boards but there are now many FSBO’s that are not. There is a way to work all of these kinds of information on an information service that is ICIWorld.
We love hearing about all exclusive transactions that started as a result of advertising it on ICIWorld or from a connection that a member made with the public or other members and discussed other opportunities not on ICIWorld and did a deal. If it wasn’t for the networking started on ICIWorld some of these deals would never have been done. We pride ourselves in providing a service that fills the gap in the marketplace. Unlike a real estate board we’re able to deliver you exclusive listings – first. I believe it is now that a real estate board should contract or buy services from ICIWorld and supply it to its members. It is now very compatible with all services that real estate companies provide and offer to all their sales team. We look to the leadership in the industry to approach us with a view to making it work in a win win situation for everyone. And most of all the public benefits because of the wider choices available supplied as a result of licensed real estate salespeople working information not just listings.
>> I have a website why should I use ICIWorld?
Many are not generating any or little quality leads from their web site. It is all about Lead Generation.
90% of people on the Internet who are searching for real estate are searching for real estate listings. ICIWorld provides special links for your web site that makes it absolutely inevitable for you to generate leads, or . . . you have no traffic to your web site.
Links to listings. Other brokers have agreed in each and every listing to allow their listings to be on your web site. What is better marketing, to have your listings on one web site or on 1,000 web sites! So they have agreed. Now it is up to you to see the benefit to yourself. If a person visits your web site and sees any one of these listings, they have to call YOU for more information. This gives you a chance to set up a showing or . . . do a referral. It is easy to add these links to your web site. They are tailored in consultation with you. Residential AND commercial, exclusive listings not available on other services, Power of Sales and more.
Learning SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and How To Promote Your Web Site is very important. Real estate provides the highest return on investment of any industry on the Internet because one lead can make one a lot of money and provide great service to the public.
ICIWorld has a monthly program, 90 minutes long, AND a section on just this one topic, How To Promote Your Web Site. Once your web site(s) are built we suggest this should become a passion for you to tell people about it. One person who visits your web site and sees a listing and bingo you can be into a showing. There are forty ways to promote all your web sites and you will learn them. You have not had the time to study all this and present it in one spot. We have.
And another concept for you . . . web sites are like billboards. You can have more than one. If and I say if they are all generating leads for you then why not? Your web sites can be linked together so when people visit one they can go to the other. You only need one business card because when they visit that one, they can see the link to the other one.
Why have another one? Because of exclusive listings that you presently do not have. Exclusive homes, condos, commercial property and more.
Because this web site sends out listings to your buyers. You can program them in. They an do it. If you do open houses you should be able to provide an iPad for people to enter their own information for what they are looking for and your web site will send it to them! This is worth its weight in gold because it works 24 hrs per day. Two weeks from they could get an email about a new property and call and ask you to show it to them. Bingo another property sold and money made.
But you might as well not have any web site if you have no traffic to the web site. Have you every spent more than $25 on search engine optimization? We have. In just one world conference we spent $4,000 to attend and learn the five key elements and we teach this in our How To Promote Your Web Site Webinars once per month for you guessed it, for members only.
