RISMEDIA, Sept. 19, 2007-While all Realtors® know that to be competitive in today’s market they must have a Web site, most do not understand how to ensure that Web site is a success. All that has changed with the release of “The Real Estate Web Site Success Guide,” which introduces a step-by-step approach to build lead generating Web sites.Co-authored by internationally recognized speaker, business coach, and author Michael J. Russer and Brad Carroll, real estate marketing specialist, this book establishes best practices for the Realtor and their Web designer to guarantee maximum online results.
“Since the real estate industry discovered the Internet, a standard has never been established. “The Real Estate Web Site Success Guide” lays out all operational and design standards that need to be in place in order to ensure the success of online agents,” says Russer.
It identifies no less than 57 elements proven to be necessary for any site to be effective. The primary problem most people experience is not taking time to analyze their online business goals and create a blueprint for a site to share with their design team.
Carroll adds, “For many real estate agents, building a Web site can be a demanding, expensive, and time consuming affair. Unfortunately few people are ever completely satisfied with the end result. With the “Web site Success Guide,” no longer will you have to leave anything to chance. The roadmap has already been prepared for you based on time-tested proven principals that generate leads.”
