AtlantaREIA.com WordPress SitePerhaps you’ve heard, that as a modern day real estate investor, you need to have a strong Internet presence and the ability to convert online traffic into leads and leads into deeds in order to survive and thrive in this new economy and real estate market in which we now live and operate. Just a few short years ago, if you had a real estate investor website and could be easily found on Google, you were far ahead of  most investors and likely got your fair share of the online leads. These days, a good website alone is no longer enough to adequately compete for leads online.

In order to compete for the coveted top 5 listings on any Google search, we must now use a variety of other Internet websites, pages and profiles such as blogs, social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and others, videos sites, photos sites, RSS feeds, squeeze pages, classified ad sites, article sites, press releases, social bookmarking and other sites too numerous to mention. You’re probably bombarded with emails on a daily basis about search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing, Internet marketing, social networking, Web 2.0, and gurus claiming to have systems to do it all for you with no effort on your part. With so many choices and so many gurus telling you what to do and how and where to spend your hard earned money, perhaps you’re confused and just don’t know where to start. If you are, you’re definitely not alone. Read More→
