How Real Estate Investors Can Dominate Local Search in 3 Steps and Get More Motivated Seller Leads
As a business coach I speak to real estate investors, entrepreneurs and small business owners all the time. Whenever I ask them about their online presence they either don’t have one or tell me something like, “I have a Facebook Business Page — is that what you mean?” Although that is something you should have it’s not the first thing you should have when you want to establish an online presence that actually generates motivated seller and even cash buyer leads.
Dominating your local market starts with dominating your local search results online. The first thing you MUST HAVE is a real estate investor website that is great at ranking and generating leads organically from the internet. This is the real estate investor website platform that I use to do just that.
Once you have a solid foundation setup (your website) the next thing to focus on is creating as much content on your website as possible and to do it consistently week in and week out. This content should be keyword rich with relevant terms that sellers and buyers are actually typing into the search engines. This is process is know at SEO or search engine optimization.
SEO For Real Estate: How To Create Content Search Engines Love
So how do you do this? We’ll the first thing you can do is to try and imagine who your ideal prospect or website visitor is. In this instance let’s say it’s a seller. What questions would that seller have? How could you help that potential seller? Ask yourself these questions and write down the answers. Use this is an outline to start creating content from. When you’re creating this content be sure to think about relevant keywords. You want to build out your real estate investor website with keyword rich content. Be careful not to over use any keywords or keyword phrases…this is called stuffing and the search engines will penalize you if you repeat the keyword to many times.
Keyword stuffing is when you use a keyword a bunch of times on the page to try and trick Google into thinking that the page is all about that specific keyword. This is not a good practice because it doesn’t have a natural feel when the visitor is reading and that is what Google is really looking for.
Here are the top keywords that I am ranking for in my local market. Notice how after each keyword I include the area in which I want to target rank for. I recommend creating a piece of content or a new city specific page for each town, city or county in your local market.
