Wemowgrass in Wesley Chapel,
Welcome to the community. Welsey Chapel is an exceptional place to live, benefits from high traffic due to Sawgrass Mall and is a very competive real estate market which is always receptive to those who provide solutions, benefits and results.
As you have repeatedly read, leads or advertising purchased from aggregate websites such as Trulia can produce a occaisional sale but would be mroe accurately described as a time hole. If you dig deeper into the Truila advertising model. those who benefit MOST do so because of their LISTINGS!! You will discover your efforts to be placed in the wrong venue. Sometimes learning what not to do, from experience, proves more durable that reading what others advise.
There is no limit to the options you have available...I'm serious.
For instance, every Saturday morning the sidewalks and pathways of Wesley Chapel are crowded with walkers, families pushing strollers, joggers, runners, bikers. I share a similar environment, but more consistant on a daily basis, in Dunedin with the Pinellas Trail and the Dunedin Causeway to Honeymoon Island State Park. You can do a meet and greet using a camera and website or be more indirect with a eye catching T with a short msg and URL.
Now, here is another idea, actually contact other agents in your area (TAMPA BAY) who participate on aggregate websites. You may want to buy the coffee and cheese danish at Panera Bread. These agents, such as mayself do NOTHING with Trulia leads. DID I SAY NOTHING? There are others who do the same. There are better ways to spend one's time. HOWEVER, during the Panera meetup, you might offer to spend your time chasing those leads.
Finally, there is a way to leverage one's presense on Trulia that will prove useful. Truila is a great big wonderful marketing playground from which you can learn much about what works and what amounts to chasing vapors. Through such expereinces, YOUR VISION becomes clearer. People are attracted to those who have vision.
Best of Success,
