Featured Directory Listings at REW
I have been meaning to post this for a while as it is a question
I get asked quite often so here goes:
For those of you interested in purchasing featured directory listings, you will find information in this post about pricing, features, benefits and the submission process.
Lets start with Features:
- The most important feature of a "featured REW listing" is the fact that your listing shows up at the very top of the directory, above any free listings or other content.
- Link to Blog: As with all REW listings, your listing will come with an additional link to your REW blog.
- Link to your listings: If you have added your listings to your REW Blog, a link to those listings will also appear.
- Link to your website: As with all REW listings, you receive embedded call to action links to your website.
- State Listings: Featured listings are the only way to be listed in a state category.
Now lets talk about benefits:
- Traffic: Being the top listing in the REW Directory for your area, you will receive the lions share of traffic. Users tend to click on the first compelling listing they see, if that listing is yours, you are likely going to capture the lead. The REW directory received millions of page views last year, how many of those were potential customers for you?
- ROI: At $1, $10 and $20 per month, the return on investment for an REW directory listing even if you only closed one deal from it every 2 years is amazing. Our hope is that by writing a great feature, you will close much more than that, and your ROI will be in the thousand percentages.
- Branding: Being listed as a "featured agent" instills confidence in the visitor. It tells them that there is something special about you and your listing.
- Exclusivity: There is only one featured listing per area sold for the year, by purchasing your areas you are able to lock out your competition.
Featured listings in the REW directory require a one year commitment, however the pricing model is actually based on monthly fees. The monthly fees are as follows (Multiply by 12 for price)
- Featured Neighborhood $1.00 USD per month ($12.00 USD per year)
- Featured City $10.00 USD per month ($120.00 USD per year)
- Featured State $20.00 USD per month ($240.00 USD per year)
If you would like to purchase a featured listing, or many featured listings, simply call the office and ask to speak to sales. Or you can email holly at realestatewebmasters.com (I did not link her email addy on purpose to avoid spambots)
What we will need from you when you contact us is:
- The state/city/neighborhood you are interested in being featured in.
- Your first name, last name,
- email address,
- Phone Number
- Company or Brokerage Name
- A unique writeup (In html format if embedded links are being provided)
The writeup is perhaps the most important part to get right here
folks, don't just copy paste some crappy link exchange description,
like "I am a Realtor service area X and waiting for your call" put
some real effort into it, the more you put into your writeup, the
more you will get out of it. I have written a tutorial / guide for
creating a good directory description here:
also keep in mind the longer your "unique" writeup
the further down the page it pushes the free listings and the more
likely you will capture the majority of the traffic.
I will be creating a form online shortly where you can submit just your features, to make it even easier to get yourself set up.
