I would say about 75% of my marketing efforts is on the internet. I do it all - - my broker site, my own site, trulia, zillow, single propety sites, facebook and twitter. Many of the leads I get find me on the internet - some of them I "meet" through email and some come to my open houses and say they saw ME (and the property) on line before they came.

I do not knock on doors, I do send postcards, I do not advertise on calenders or shopping carts... I don't do mixers, I do participate in my broker's home buyer seminars but I do not host them myself. I do not cold call.

I am consistently in the top three agents in my office of almost 50 agents in both dollar volume and transactions.

Good luck!

My best source of leads is through the internet followed closely by referrals. I've found Trulia to be one of the best internet marketing resources--strive to own your market on Trulia...well worth the investment.

Thanks, Dan! I forgot to finish my thought... I wanted to point out that open houses DO work (as lead generators) - nothing beats face to face. And - keeping in touch with past customers is HUGE!
