Here's a great piece on Zillow!
After all of the hustle and bustle, the holidays are finally here. Traditionally there aren't a lot of people out touring homes this week, so it gives you some time to take a breather and get caught up on office duties, while sipping egg nog.
If you haven't taken a look at your Zillow Profile lately, now would be a great time to go back and freshen it up or fill it out with more detail. About 3 months ago we added the ability for you to link to your blog, facebook page, twitter account or linkedin profile. You can write a full description about you, including links to your favorite blog posts or website.
If you don't yet have a free Profile, there are four big reasons why you would want to create one:
- Uploading your photo to your profile makes your photo also show up on all of your listings.
- It bascially becomes an online resume for you, as you can add marketing text about yourself.
- Your profile will automatically be included in the Directory (for free).
- *NEW* Registered agents get period listing reports as to how their properties are performing on the site.
It is very important to register using the SAME email address as the source which syndicates your listings. We match the email address on the listing to the email address on the profile to know to match them up.
There are many other ways you can promote yourself on Zillow, but to do so, creating a profile is the first step.
Happy Holidays everyone. Thank you for everything I have learned from you in 2009 and I wish everyone a fantastic 2010!
