personal websites, are they worth it?

By
Real Estate Agent with Lang McLaughry & Spera

My company has a fantastic website and it's only drawback is I have to pay a 25% referral fee when leads come from there.  Since the site has to be funded somehow this isn't unreasonable.  But I also have my own site and really need some advice.  I pay for SEO to be found in the "Northeast Kingdom" but I'm no where to be found in any of the first thirty pages--gave up looking after that.  Do all you really busy people find a personal site to be worth the money?  I would really appreciate any feedback before I "pull the plug".

Sorry I am late with a comment, but writing articals and such will get your website noticed. If you work for the company why would anyone pay for a service that should be free.

Absolutely not. No value at all unless you are willing to spend big money promoting it. Just saying I have website does nothing. People have to find you and that costs $$$$. It's all about social networking, i.e. twitter, facebook, activerain, linkedin etc. That's how real estate will be sold in 2010 and beyond. The old time realtors doing business as usual will fade away quickly, mark my words.

 

good luck and happy new year!
