I am so excited to be able to say that I got to work with the great Don Minchello and his wonderful team at Home Center Sotheby’s International Realty in Hingham and Cohasset, Massachusetts. This great South Shore company has been a fixture for many years. Don recently acquired the firm and has been making some improvements for the company’s clientele, as well as the agents. This website was a lot of fun to work on and Boston Logic once again provided the platform and tools we needed to get it done.
The world of real estate websites has changed dramatically from the days when you just had to post your own listings and have a webpage with your agent’s names and photos. As consumers, we all expect much more.
Broker/Owner of Bettencourt Real Estate, Marco Bettencourt, recently decided he needed to improve his site to help his clients get more out of it. He opted to use the Sequoia platform from Boston Logic, which features mapped searches with integrated Yelp and Education.com information, on-site Zillow stats, and luxury building pages.
The site only launched this morning — but, let me share a couple of numbers with you:
As of one hour after launch, the new BettencourtRealEstate.com site improved it to 63. That was just the change to the website (in other words, using a better platform and features) – no added social media accounts or backlinking or blogging, all of which will improve the score in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for updates. I think this is going to be a fun story.
I can’t tell you how many times I try to find a small business online and Google returns no results. This is not Google’s fault; it is not even the business owner’s fault; it is just how the system works — someone has to enter the data. However, knowing how the system works, it falls on the business owner to do at least a few simple things to be found and grow. Some basic, inexpensive methods with nurture a business into the future.
December 13 @ 3pm – “Using Your Website to Grow Your Business” free webinar from Boston Logic taught by Colleen Barry.
Tomorrow’s free webinar with Boston Logic will focus on real estate companies’ websites. I will be touching on how to generate new leads, convert current leads, recruit new agents and retain current agents. All of these things can be done with a good website and a plan. This helps to improve your online ROI and make a more efficient use of your time.
With nine years of experience in real estate marketing, I have seen a dramatic shift in the real estate industry. I understand the demands placed on companies, owners, agents and their clients. My goal is to bring those concerns together with available technology to improve client-agent-company relationships.
