What exactly are you attempting to accomplish?
Without a real defined and MEASUREABLE objective, such efforts amount to flailing about hoping for something good to happen. The good that happens is usually beneficial to whomever has enrolled you in an 'auto-pay' program.
Lets say for instance one were to ask which is better, Trulia or HouseValues?
For VOLUME of lead generation Truila would win.
For quality of leads Housevalues would win.....by a huge margin.
Then comes the care and feeding required of low quality leads as opposed to the 90 day market.
Designations like E-PRO should be assessed in exactly the same way. You will quickly discover only those designations for which you have assigned a REAL PURPOSE, and you leverage that purpose, will benefit you. For the most part, the 'Campbell Soup' non-sense is just a great way to separate those agents who are not paying attention, from their money. There is only ONE alphabetical appendage that ACTUALLY pays off.
Best of success
