In order to ensure the success of every single member using ICIWorld, we have examined the reasons why some are doing well and some others are not.
We want to make sure you have all of the following working for you. For example:
- With a readership of 30,000+ people per month, 15,000 EMails delivering information to the real estate industry, 18,000 pages displaying information on ICIWorld on the Internet, and with 2.4 billion people on the Internet, do you realize that it is absolutely invevitable that every single member generate leads from their Haves and Wants (we recommend a minimum of fifteen Haves and Wants - see this movie how to get up to fifteen) and their web site unless you have a material defect in your membership or no traffic to your web site or not many listings on your web site? (See the Search Button on these web sites.) Need help? Just ask. We will help you one on one to get things set up properly.
- Material Defects Here are some differences between those who make money and those who do not using information and the Internet services.
- On your home page, do you have all of these types of links working for you for your area? See web sites with links. Take your time to study what is in the Search button of every web site. Mark the ones down that you would like to have working on your web site. We can help you install them. If you have more than one web site, mark all the ICIWorld links that you would like because they can go on all your web sites. There are many different links, by category, type, city, Active versus all listings, etc. Just ask.
- Do you know why links to listings are important for lead generation? Do you know how to structure these links so they generate leads for you? Do you have a great set of resources for your customers on your web site? Do you know there is a great set of resource suggestions for you to add to your web site? (In Training Videos) Just ask.
- Do you know why we recommend you have more listings than just the listings in the specific area that you work? Just ask.
- Do you realize your web site has or should have exclusive listings that other brokers do not have? This is a major competitive advantage when you tell people you have exclusive listings on your web site that are not on MLS. Most all brokers have MLS listings on their web site or should have (we install IDX links from real estate boards for you) But not all have exclusive listings. You have exclusive residential, exclusive condos AND exclusive commercial. This is a major advantage. Are you promoting this when you hand out your business cards? Do you have your web site address on your business cards? Do you know how to promote this? Just ask.

- Do you have fifteen opportunities, Haves and Wants, working for you on ICIWorld? If not here is a video that shows you how to achieve that. Part 7 (The Three Questions) 12 minutes (In Training Videos) All FSBO's in everyones market can and should be placed by you on ICIWorld using this concept. They say 80% of FSBO's are sold by real estate professionals. This gives you the chance to be ones doing it. Need help to get to fifteen? It is actually easier than you think! Just ask.
- Do you realize you have better marketing exposure than FSBO's? When your listing goes on ICIWorld it can be on one thousand other brokers web sites instantly and automatically. The same when you place listings on the Point 2 site. Readership on ICIWorld alone is 30,000 people monthly and in addition there are 15,000 to 20,000 EMails delivering Haves and Wants daily to the public. You just have to place one ad to get all this done! This is for all your listings all year long. See statistics. You can print out a list of countries and use it in your listing presentations. Any questions, just ask.
- Did you know you can print out a list of buyers and use it as part of your listing presentation. It shows how well connected you are into the buyers in the marketplace. It is a powerful listing tool. There is no other list like it in the world today that we know of. Are you using it? How to do it? Just ask.

Much like a doctors office, you make an appointment. In most all cases it is almost always 30 minutes. Have a cup of coffee with us. Have a pad of paper and pencil handy to take notes.
Don't leave this until you membership is due for renewal. Ask us during the year for assistance.
With ICIWorld you are dealing with one computer that displays all the Haves and Wants to the world.
It is one computer designed to collect all the real estate industry Haves and Wants in the world.
This allows you to advertise and network directly to the world in the most inexpensive way possible in the world today. Keep in mind this is a $240 per year service. If we had to hire more people it can not stay at $240 per year. If we had an account receivable clerk it would add to the cost for you. If we had a person who called you every month it would add to the cost for you. This way it is just you and one computer dealing directly with the world. Make it easy on yourself and us. Get things working for you by allowing us to help you throughout the year and your renewal before your renewal date to keep your costs down.
We keep in touch by sending you this EMail. With a thousand members it is hard for one person to call everyone. However we are addressing that with a special dialer. You will only hear that periodically when there is an important event, announcement of some sort. And by EMail.
This is Lead Generation. One lead, one showing, one offer, one deal, and a holiday for you that is the goal each and every time.
If you have a health problem, you ask a doctor for assistance. Any Internet ICIWorld problem or issue, just ask.
If you have suggestions please let us know.
All the best in real estate.
