If you are a Real Estate agent...a website can...and should be a powerful piece of your marketing Arsenal.
However, a tool you may, or may not know about YET, is DropFunnels.
When I was running my own personal sites, before getting into Real Estate, I used something called WordPress 99% of the time.
I'm not going to get too technical, but if you've ever read a blog online, it's very likely it was built on the WordPress platform.
Once I became a Real Estate agent, I knew with my background, I could utilize my knowledge in Search Engine Optimization (ranking websites) to help me generate more leads and more business.
Since in the mind of many agents, marketing just consisted of littering...I mean dropping off flyers...I knew there wasn't much competition when it came to ranking a local website as an agent.
I knew I wasn't going to rank with the big boys like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Trulia.
Especially for terms like "Long Beach Homes For Sale".
But I knew if I niched down into specific neighborhoods, school districts, and condo complexes, I would probably rank pretty well.
But then I got off track...
The shiny lure revealed itself to me...Facebook ads!
I did well with Facebook Ads...for both myself...and the real estate agents I work with.
However, my goal was, and always has been, to help other Real Estate Agents grow their business through digital marketing.
And to be honest...paid real estate advertising can get complicated......and done incorrectly...expensive. Real expensive!
I knew in the back of my mind there was a better way for an agent to dip their toes into online leads, and do it without a whole lot of risk or major expenses.
The answer was to build a blog filled with content about their local real estate market.
But just like paid ads being complicated, setting up a WordPress website has it's complexities as well.
I've used Russel Brunson's site builder Clickfunnels in the past, and still do for some things...mainly sales funnels.
And although Clickfunnels is great at sales funnels, it is not meant to be used to create a website with regular content updates, like a blog.
That's when I heard about Drop Funnels.
I've been following Jordan Mederich and what he's been doing with funnels for quite a while now.
Although I don't know him personally, I get a good vibe from him and always seem to learn something from the content he puts out.
So when Jordan announced that he was releasing something that would allow users to not only create sales funnels, but also a blog built on the WordPress platform, I was intrigued.
This sounded like the combo I had been in search of...
...and something that I could recommend to other agents without them having to setup their own hosting, themes, plugins and all the other "fun" stuff that comes with setting up your own WordPress website.
At the time of writing this, I've had my hands on DropFunnels as a Beta user for about week.
In fact, this post you are reading right now is hosted on DropFunnels.
Because of my limited time with my hands on DropFunnels...I'm not ready to give you my full DropFunnels review just yet.
But I will say...so far...I really like what I'm seeing and I'm excited for the future plans Jordan and his team have for Drop Funnels.
