More Instructions to Enter Information
The first service of its kind in the world started in 1994 with over one year in development for this following one feature alone.
The Business Area entry method on ICIWorld is the newest and latest technological advancement in the commercial real estate industry world wide, for two major reasons for instance:
MAKE SURE YOU CONTINUE SELECTING ALL THE CHOICES THAT APPLY TO YOUR HAVE AND WANTS. If you do not, you can miss doing a deal and not even know it.
There are four choices for Business Area. The first could be USA, then choose a region like South East or South West and then choose your state. That's it. If you only choose USA then people searching a region or state do not see your listing and it will not get emailed to that state.
Another example is for Canada, then say a province like Ontario, then Greater Toronto Area, then Toronto. If you miss selecting all four you can easily miss doing a deal and you would not even know it. Select all the Business Areas that apply or you can be missing doing a deal and not realize it.
Check your listings after adding them and modifying them. Click on Latest World on the left to see how the public sees your listing.
These choices determine where your listings will be EMailed to. If you only select USA and not Florida, yes your listing will get circulated to the USA List Service, but not the Florida List Service.
If you are not sure, call 416-840-6227 anytime and make a short appointment for a workshop Webinar. This one phone call can ensure you enter information correctly so you stand a chance to make money and not miss doing a deal.
Regarding the placement of
If your property is located in Florida, do not click any other states. If it is in Mexico do not select another country. Many people today have blackberry hand held devices and other Personal Device Assistants. Nothing is more frustrating and annoying than to have listings come in areas that do not apply to the appropriate Business Category and/or appropriate Business Area. It is a lot of clicking for nothing and people do not like that.
Check your subject line and check your categories and they should
conform. Place another listing with a different subject, different
business areas, different business categories to make it conform.
SIZE and/or PRICE, SIZZLE, and in that order is the
best advice. You will find the results better and more qualified. Some
find they are into a transaction in an average of four calls.
For a buyer sizzle means, what is so good about your buyer over the other buyers in the marketplace? Are they qualified, do they have the cash, are they ready to act quickly, can they close in 30-180 day closing. Sometimes a later closing is preferrable, sometimes an earlier closing is preferrrable by an owner and if your purchaser is flexible it can be an advantage.
Contact information is not allowed in the subject line. The listings are displayed on other brokers web sites. Other brokers' listings are displayed on your web site. EMail addresses, addresses of listings, web sites, phone numbers are not allowed in the subject line. They are included in the body of your listing of course because the listings displayed on ICIWorld web sites are designed to be read by the public so they can call you. The subject lines are displayed on other broker web sites and are designed to get you more market exposure for your listings. But for other brokers to display your listings, it would not be appropriate to place addresses in the subject lines.
Principal versus principle - What is the difference? Important when saying principals only.

You should modify your listings every 30-60 days. If you do not, your
information goes down in the database. We have noticed the majority of
deals are started at the top half of the database. This is where there
are over a million hits per month, but also, instantly and
automatically, your information is emailed out to the industry. There are
over 10,000 EMails being delivered daily with new people subscribing
regularly. If your information is near the bottom of the database, people
simply get so busy working the top half they do not even get down to the
bottom and secondly, it is not distributed to all the new people who have
subscribed to receive things by EMail.
Status of Listings. There are four status of listings: Active, Sold, Expired, Inactive. If you only want active choose active status when doing any advanced search. You can also search by date. Expired and inactive listings provide opportunities for networking purposes. Expired members listings are still maintained in the database to provide opportunities for members to network with them. Expired members can no longer add listings to Database 1 and can not modify their old listings but can receive calls on old listings. If you do not wish to search old listings don't. Choose status active and search using date fields. Latest always gives the latest listings first.
Category. Make sure you choose the Have/Want category of your listing.
If you place a Wanted listing and you do not change the Have/Want to a
Want, people who are searching for buyers will not find you.
Market your location with links!
One recommendation is to link your listing to the listing page on your web site where you have your listing. That way when people see your listing on ICIWorld they click for more details and it takes them directly to the listing on YOUR web site. This is also lead generation for your website from a listing. Your website should already automatically be in your listing for more lead generation.
In the Resource Center, Help Files for The Market ICI Network, right after Training Program is a file called "How to Link to Photos and Economic Development Agencies." Many say that location, location, location are among the three most important words in real estate. In my opinion real estate brokers and salespeople have not really arrived on the Internet in an effective fashion because you can have a great property, but it is getting people to go to your location that is the issue. By selling your community to the world, and keep in mind this is a global service with people from over 100 countries readership, you will attract people to your location. You can do this by linking to sites like your Local Economic Development agency and/or the Chamber of Commerce that helps to market the location. One of the "true powers of the Internet" is in linking. These sites have spent $25,000 and more to develop websites like an electronic brochure that markets your location to attract investment and you can link to these sites absolutely free! Link to city sites, local economic development agencies, local Chambers of Commerce, local State and Provincial sites, country site that helps sell the location. Make a 30 minute appointment for a workshop Webinar with me if you need assistance to do this.
For properly formed Internet Links click on Add
Link. Use the Link helper. This way people can click on the words such as
"All about and the name of your city" and immediately be taken there to
see some marketing about your area and all the great benefits of living
and working in your area. Do not just paste a link in the Internet Links Box otherwise people have to copy that link first and paste it into their URL. Use the link helper to form a properly formed link so that people just have to click on the link. Make a 30 minute appointment for a workshop Webinar if
you would like assistance to do this and to find links that help to sell the location of your properties. Use Visitors and Convention Bureaus, Tourist sites and much more.

every time when searching or adding listings it could
be that you need a setting changed in your browser.
