Which of Trulia's Top 50 Ways of Marketing Real Estate Online have you found most effective, if any?

Asked by Jim, Lake Mary, FL Wed Oct 17, 2007

I've been going through Trulia's "Top 50 Ways of Marketing Real Estate Online"


and I was wondering which sites and services was everyone finding most effective for marketing their business?

For instance they reccommended facebook, but does the demographic that uses this and the way they limit your ability to view profiles depending on which networks you are a part of really make this an effective tool?

Help the community by answering this question:


I would say steadily network on three. If I were a real estate agent and had to choose three:
1. Localism- The consumer portal of ActiveRain.
2. My own blog- And build a community.
3. Facebook- Yes, by inviting current and past clients and updating on their walls and meeting their friends, etc., you broaden your community, which is what it's all about.

O.K. I will throw in a third- Twitter, because its easy to microblog. It makes sense. Conversations happen, and you can get business from it. Plus you can syndicate twitter to Active Rain, Facebook and your own blog.

Jim, I am glad you asked the question. I am currently experimenting with some of these websites. Most are very easy to move around in and most post listing to other websites. I have not started blogging yet. I have heard it is very time consuming. If any of you have a better opinion of blogging please share it.

I strongly believe that HTML email flyers such as http://www.myagent2agent.com is a great way to get new information regarding the property out to real estate agents. It is cost effective!

I vote for Active Rain also. It's great and it's FREE! Warning - it is also addicting :)

ActiveRain is by far the best...any post you make on ActiveRain is immediately picked up by the search engines!
