Default Motivated self starter here!!!!

Hi,
Happy I found this site. I am co-owner of a real estate listings website targeting the real estate market in Virginia. Website will be finalized by the end of the month and I am currently looking to be part of a network of people just like me. Any ideas as to how to improve my business tactics will be very welcome.
I look forward to being a part of the network and contribute in any way possible.

Thanks for having me.

WELCOME!!!

First thought. Are you a Realtor? Have you ever listed, sold or marketed real estate offline? My first impression is that if you haven't, perhaps you should consider it. It will give you a great perspective of what your sellers and buyers are interested in.

Another thought, promote promote promote the website EVERYWHERE!!! I have our travel agency website on everything! (including the back of my wifes car). Send post cards introducing the website to everyone in your address book, both email and little black book.

Those are my first thoughts, they are free and you know you get what you pay for right?

Respectfully,
David Francis
Former Realtor

Consider fixing your meta information at that website so the spiders will start indexing it. Also, a nice long article describing your intent for the site will reinforce your meta tags as well. Links to major associations wouldn't hurt either.

I was just thinking about this topic yesterday. I've had a few sites that I registered and put a "coming soon" page on only to find that it was indexed and discarded quickly. In other words, once indexed, I found that same splash page in search engine caches months later.

Just another "thought."
