During these unprecedented times, it can be hard to find your footing. While many of us learn how to run our businesses from our home offices, this is a good time to get our online presence in order.

Now, more than ever, you need to focus on getting leads, and ensuring that while they visit your site, they are having the best possible experience.

Part of this is taking a good look at your website, and taking the time (while you have it) to clean it up, to ensure your leads are spending as much time on your pages as possible.

As you are practicing social distancing and working from home, so are they. And they have much more time on their hands to prepare to buy or sell their homes, once the fears of the crisis

search engine optimization (SEO)We’ve all heard the old adage, “Content is King.” But how your content is structured on each page is just as important as the content itself. Internet users are a fickle breed, so you want to make sure you present the most important, interesting and valuable content prominently, at the top of the page.

In terms of a page that is highly optimized for search engines, there are specific places you should make sure you feature your main targeted keywords. This is, of course, an important step in ensuring that search engine crawlers understand the intent of your page, but it also helps orient human users as well.

The holidays are a special time here at Real Estate Webmasters.

It is a time where we celebrate our community—the very community that REW has grown up in, and who has given so much support to us over the years.

But we know that Christmas is hard for many families, in our community and beyond.

In Nanaimo, we have a volunteer organisation called Volunteer Nanaimo. Like many of their sister organisations in cities all through North America, Volunteer Nanaimo serves our community in many, many amazing ways.

During the holidays, they also run a program simply called "Christmas Angels".

Christmas Angels connects the community with families, seniors, and vulnerable youth, where Christmas can be an especially financially troublesome time.

It's our favourite time of year here at Real Estate Webmasters.

Not only is it the holiday season, it's also a time to reflect on successes of the past year and a time to look forward to the year ahead.

At REW, we've immensely grown our business over the years, but that doesn't mean it's time to take the foot off the gas.

Looking ahead to 2020, REW is investing in our technology, people, and marketing more than ever before. Because that's what it takes to be an industry leader.

And the same applies to you. Whether you're an agent, team, or broker—it's a great time to ask:

"What am I doing to make 2020 MY YEAR? What am I doing to get ahead or to stay ahead in my extremely competitive market?"

I have just returned from NAR's iOi conference and my mind is on fire! I am so excited for what is to come, not just for me or for REW, but for our industry. I have been inspired by the amazing entrepreneurs I was fortunate enough to spend time with there, whether it was a brand new prop tech founder with eyes on taking over the world, or more established leaders like Chris Smith of Curaytor who have broken through some massive barriers and come out the other side with some wonderful companies. 

For those of you who don't know (which is probably most of you because I had no idea) iOi is the National Association Of Realtors "Innovation, Opportunities & Investment" conference. It was just held in Seattle and I have to say, for tech entrepreneurs & investors
