Understanding Material Defects and Providing Solutions That Fix Them
FIRST: How to measure your success?
It is called Our Pledge.
If you are not generating leads every 90 days and doing business then you call us and let us train you.
We can provide immediate solutions in as little as one 60 minute Webinar workshop consulting session.
If it is not working effectively simply give us a chance to help you.
Understanding what we call material defects and then getting them fixed can be the difference between making money and not making money. There are things you can do to get things setup properly, keep things up to date, monitor things and implement new Internet and ICIWorld services.
Most common areas of improvement for Executive Members:
- is your website optimized and is it even set up properly?
- Would you like some feedback and make recommendations.
- Also for non-members, would you like to discuss your existing website and gain some feedback.
- We provide a free consultation and point out how widgets can be added to your existing website that is absolutely inevitable to trigger leads.
- The importance of having a Resource Center,
- The ICIWorld Marketing Strategy we call The Race Is On to get your mobile website as a shortcut on all your customers mobile devices so when they thing real estate they go to their phone and search your website on their phone.
- Do one deal or one referral in ten years and it pays for this service (10 x 319=$3,190) and you should be doing a deal every three months or at the very least generating leads every 90 days that you feel will lead to doing business otherwise call us and give us a chance for some input.
- are you promoting your website?
- if you are not getting leads from your website do you think it is because of the widgets of listings or the fact that you are not getting traffic for your website? There are solutions.
- have you even thought that you should learn how to promote your website and how?
- do you know the significance of having a website on the Internet where there are 3.7 billion people?
- do you know how it can make your job in real estate easier?
- have you attended our monthly Webinar workshop 90 minutes entitled “How To Promote Your Web Site” We encourage all members to Register.
- It includes SEO (Search Engine Marketing) but that is only one of forty ways.
- Social media is one way and we explain it.
- How you hand out a business card is one way and we explain it.
- What good is a website if you have no traffic. This is your office building on the Internet that displays to the public what it is that you do.
- It displays listings, Haves and Wants to the public so that when they are interested in a property or business they call you.
- Do you set up people to automatically receive listings that match what they are looking for?
- It is inevitable that if the widgets and links to listings that we provide are setup and working properly that people call you. /li>
- We recommend seeing #15 in the Training Videos. This is where everyone who wants to promote their website should spend time learning until you are generating leads, doing business and referrals.
- Do you know there are ways for your website to come up within 48 hours at the top of the search engines.
- Do you know there is a $100 towards advertising for you and you will learn about this in the “How To Promote Your Website” webinar.
- And . . . there is more.
- do you have all the Widgets, the revenue-producing links on all your websites?
- Do you realize how absolutely inevitable it is for every single real estate broker and salesperson in the world to generate leads to do referrals and direct business the rest of your life with these widgets of content for your website?
- If you are not getting leads every 90 days do you think it is because of the widgets or because you have no traffic to your website? Obviously, it is no traffic. Do you know what the solution for that is? ie: Registering for the monthy Webinar How To Promote Your Website.
- But the listings have to be set up properly and we can check that for you and discuss it with you.
- The widgets, links to listings that we supply, work automatically updating themselves with 50-150 new listings daily.
- This brings people back to your website if you tell them if you tell them to visit often to see new listings.
- You will have thousands of listings on your website in a way that generates leads for you! Without it you are missing opportunities to generate leads, do referrals and direct business and do not realize it.
- Are your all websites linked together?
- Would you like our feedback on this for your consideration?
- If you are introducing a new product to a city, is it better to have 5 billboards or one billboard? The same for websites. And you can link them together so that you only need one name on your business card.
- Check all links on your websites regularly. Are they working?
- Just because they were there when you started does not mean they are working now. Glitches on the Internet, not logging in every month, human error, and more can result in No Listings Found. No wonder some are not getting calls. Call us now to help you fix things.
- Are addresses of properties advertised on your website by other brokers showing?
- If a new prospect visits your website and they see listings and they see an address, are they going to call you first or might they drive by the property first because they have seen the address on your website? If they drive by the property and they see a sign from the other broker on the property might they call the other broker? If they do a deal with the other broker does that other broker call you back and say thank you? This is simply a difference of professional opinion. See us to fix this problem properly. Again this can be like a light switch turning on, all of a sudden you can start to get leads trickling in.
- do you have fifteen Haves and Wants on ICIWorld?
- Every single member should have a minimum of fifteen. This is your inventory on the Internet. At least 10 Haves and 5 Wants or you are not working to your potential working information in the marketplace not just listings on a real estate board. The advantage of a real estate board is they place that on the Internet where there are five billion people. If you have less than five listings on a real estate board would you agree you are almost out of business? With information, you can work that on ICIWorld which places your information on the Internet where there are five billion people. You are in business!It is always best to get a signed listing onto a real estate board but many times it is not possible. Many times members place opportunities on ICIWorld and generate activity and if not sold they eventually get the listing to put on a real estate board.
- See video number 2 in the Training Videos, Three Special Questions, 12 minutes long, for the exclusive use of Executive Members. It has helped some make $50,000 within 90 days of learning by generating a showing on something they could not place on a real estate board.
- Are your listings up to date
- we recommend you modify your listings every 30-60 days and in no event let them go more than 90 days without modifying and updating them.
- People work the top half of the database and get so busy they do not have time to get down to the bottom where your listings may be.
- And you are missing sending them out to the industry by EMail again.
- Also ICIWorld’s default setting on mobile devices worldwide will not display your listings unless they are Active Status ads and less than six months old.
- There is a new age field where people can choose to see only listings that are less than 30 days old. That would eliminate a lot of people seeing your ads unless you refreshed them every 30-60 days is what we recommend and in no event letting them go longer than 90 days old.
- There is a responsibility on your part on behalf of the clients and customers you serve to keep your information up to date.
- When you modify a listing after 30 days they go to the top of the database where there is a readership of 40,000 + and they get emailed out to the industry with 10,000 to 20,000 EMails delivering information daily. Otherwise, your listings sit in an older part of the database.
- If you have a listing that should be receiving call check to see Have you chosen the right Business Categories and Business Area, put in the proper price in the price field, square footage if any in the Building Area Square Foot field? Let us help you go over your listings for improvements.
- A quick consultation may help. Our feedback may be important for you. Do you have the keywords in the subject line, a city that can help people find your kind of business and properties in your area? Missing one word means people can miss seeing your listing and you miss doing a deal and do not even realize it.
- have you searched both Database 1 and Database 2 the For Sale By Owner Area for buyers and sellers and what they want to buy and sell?
- you should be able to search anything within one minute and most times within 30 seconds or you are missing something. Make a list of searches you would like to do and call our office and may we demonstrate? Everything should be within a minute and much less.
- Database 2 is where the public can post information absolutely free, but only members of ICIWorld have access to the contact information. If a member has a property for a buyer or buyer for a property, you should be calling these people. They can use your help marketing their properties and finding them. These can become your Haves and Wants in Database 1.

- Do you treat the listings as an opportunity to network with the people behind the listings
- The true value of the service, in my opinion, is the networking that is going on. Being introduced to people with whom you might do business. Develop business relationships with people and discuss other things, not on the service and go off and do deals business.
- Sometimes a member gets a buyer from advertising on ICIWorld and finds the property on a real estate board and does a deal.

- have you been doing referrals and/or direct business? Have you been making connections? If not why not? Have you gone longer than 90 days without calling us or getting into a Webinar Workshop? This is a measure of getting the Internet to work for you.
- Do you realize you must call us if you are not doing some kind of business every 90 days or generating leads? Do you know why?

(video available to teach this in Training Videos. Do you know where this is?)
