Web Site Recommendations
The highest return on
investment (ROI) of any industry using the Internet is REAL ESTATE.
One lead, one showing, one
One lead, one referral, one
There are ways
for all web sites to generate leads.
SUGGESTION: Most all Web Site companies will
provide help to design and promote your web site. It is up to you to call
them when if you are not generating leads and ask them for help. Our
recommendation is that you do not go longer than 90 days without
generating a lead or doing a deal or call them. There are things they can
do. If you get discouraged it is like driving a car and running out of
gas. DO YOU ABANDON THE CAR?

and commercial property not on real estate boards so you want to include
that as well or you are missing out.
