Tools to Improve Your Marketing
Getting the right marketing materials can make a world of difference for the better…or for the worse.  Let’s start with your photo.  This is one of the first impressions for potential clients.  If you haven’t updated your photo since that ’91 “Glamor Shot” it’s time to update.  If your photo still has hair and your don’t (I can relate) it’s time to update.  If you walked into a listing presentation and the seller asked “Are you the grandmother of the agent on the card?” then it’s time to update.

Photo Touch-Ups You go out and get a new photo.  You look great, but the photo has that boring portrait sitting background.  Or worse it was a great photo of you at an event, but the background is horrible.  That can be fixed.  Go to this MichaelTritthart.com link and scroll down to Photo Touch-ups.  For a $50 fee this company will touch up your photo, but more importantly, you can choose a professional looking background.  An office building, interior of a home, etc.  Well worth the $50 one time investment.
 

Google Photos This brand new free app is still being figured out by the masses, but the results so far have been amazing.  The app will allow you to store your photos and very easily create a slideshow, photo album, movie and more.  All from your phone.  Pretty amazing and super easy.  Check out more Google Photo details and samples on MichaelTritthart.com.

Google’s Algorithum Change – Two Weeks later
Google Mobile-Friendly Test UPDATE

Mobile

geddon-2015.  Much like the news hype about the next huge winter storm, the hype was worse than the actually effect.  No fireballs from the sky and your site has not been banished to the nether regions.

Yes, Google changed it’s search algorithm on April 21st.  If your site is mobile optimized all is good.  If not, the Search Engine Optimization is being affected.  But it can be corrected.  Fear not, once you pass the test, you will be back in Google’s good graces. 
Test your site by going to the Google Mobile-Friendly test on MichaelTritthart.com
.

TIP – KW agents – you can have your eAgentc site pass the test by watching and following the steps in my Google Mobile Friendly video.

Here are some things to keep in mind as we all move into this new territory.

  • Common Sense  Use it.  Whenever there is a major change the jackals move in to take advantage.  I have seen multiple ads, heard radio spots promoting mobile enhanced sites.  Many of which start at $4,000-5,000 a site.  That is insane.
  • Know What You Get  Don’t just fall for a pretty home page that is mobile responsive.  Make sure your site has content and lead capture throughout.
  • Many Mobile Options Abound  WordPress.org, WebsiteBox.com and Market Leader sites for all agents.  KW agents can get their eAgentc sites enhanced as well.

Before deciding what path to take, contact my design team and we will offer you a free consult to help you decide; whether you use our design team or not.  However, you will see that our design options/content and pricing will be hard to beat.

No Foolin’ – The Big Boys Are Making Some Major Changes
Google Mobile-Friendly Test – Google is bringing a major change to it’s search algorithm on April 21st.  If your site is mobile optimized all is good.  If not, the Search Engine Optimization could be affected.  Fear not, once you pass the test, you will be back in Google’s good graces.  Test your site by going to the Google Mobile-Friendly test on MichaelTritthart.com.  KW agents – you can have your eAgentc pass the test by watching and following the steps in my Google Mobile Friendly video.

Facebook Embed Video – Facebook is taking a major shot at YouTube’s market share.  The next evolution of this is Facebook embed videos.  Now, you can take a publicly shared video and add that to your website/blog with code.  Videos about your community, ones you have posted.  Or better yet, think of how many kitten videos you can now easily add to your blog!  More information about what this is and install directions can be found on MichaelTritthart.com.

DuckDuckGo  Not one of the big boys, but an up-and-comer for a major reason.  Tracking and the lack there of.  Predictive data is huge in 2015.  It is a major factor in the marketing and structure of many companies and real estate businesses.  But sometimes, the little guy gets tired of every move online being tracked and ads popping up, tailored to those searches.  That is where DuckDuckGo comes into play.  No ads.  Just clean natural results.  It’s actually kind of refreshing to use.  Go check it out for yourself.  It can be found, along with more useful sites on MichaelTritthart.com.

3 Ways to Kickstart Your Business in 2015!

2015 is shaping up to be another great year in real estate.  Here are 3 items to help get you the online edge you need to be successful.

Google Domains – Great timing for Google on this recently announced offering and really, really bad timing by Godaddy.  Godaddy just released an offensive Super Bowl commercial (quickly pulled) that has animal lovers up in arms.  Just a few weeks ago, Google announced that it was getting into the domain name business.  Need to get a new domain name?  You may want to check out what Google offers.   See this and other value adds from Google on MichaelTritthart.com.

TalkWalker –  Now that you have a domain name for your site, you need content.  Struggling to think of something to write?  You can always use Google Alerts.  But add TalkWalker to the mix for free.  This site allows you to view blog posts and other social media platforms, in addition to the many of the same sites Google Alerts provides.  Remember, do not just copy/paste.  Copy, modify and then paste.  Use the data to help create your own custom content; which Google (and your potential clients) will love. View TalkWalker and other sites on my Useful Websites resource page on MichaelTritthart.com.

Pop Up Tools for Leads – Domain name?  Check.  Content?  Check.  Now you  need the lead capture.  Though controversial to some, pop up boxes may be just what you need.  Check out 5 pop up tools that you can add to your website to encourage registration.  They can be modified and adjusted as you wish to maximize effectiveness.   This great article from Inman can be found here on MichaelTritthart.com.
