Welcome to Week Four of the Market Snaphot: Lead Generation Self Learning

Maximize Exposure

This week we will show you how to position Market Snapshot in a variety of different media. From targeted websites, social media, email, or even print ads; the more exposure you give Market Snapshot, the harder it will work for you! Market Snapshot is designed to attract leads from multiple channels – the more ways you distribute the form, the more prospects you will present with your call to action. More exposure means more leads!

With Market Snapshot, you can sign up as many prospects as you like, the monthly subscription price stays the same. You’re paying for the service, so be sure to use Market Snapshot to its full potential. Use the Snapshot to attract leads by using:

Single-purpose Landing Pages

Landing pages with a URL specific to neighborhoods or communities you are targeting. Selecting an effective domain was discussed previously in Week 1 and Week 2. The steps to create a standalone landing page are shown here.

Example Inquiry Capture Forms

Market Snapshot Widget Examples

Website Widgets

Visitors to your website are looking for “take-away” value – consider inserting the Market Snapshot widget into relevant sections of your website to fill that demand. Use the small form as a side-bar on your listings page. The steps to insert a widget onto your Top Producer Website or Featured Website are available here.

You can also post a link to the full-page form on your main menu called “Market Update.” Simply create a menu item that links directly to your Market Snapshot page, using the Text Link available when creating the Lead Capture Form.

Email Signature

Insert a Market Snapshot link in your email signature. For instructions to insert a link into the signature of several popular email programs, visit the Market Snapshot Capturing Leads Section.

Enhance the link in your email by using a clickable picture. Instead of a text link, consider adding an eye-catching graphic with a link.

Manual HTML

If you are familiar with basic HTML coding, and know how to host photos in an online application like PhotoBucket, you can create a clickable image by using the html code below, replacing the red text with your own links.

<a href="http://REPLACE_THIS_WITH_THE_DESTINATION_URL"><img src="http://REPLACE_THIS_WITH_URL_TO_PHOTOBUCKET_IMAGE" border="0"></a>

 

For example, this code:
