Here are 8 Places To Find Unlimited Leads By Using A Real Estate Virtual Assistant:
If you want to show up in Google ranks or get any traffic, you need to be posting on social media.
Social media is literally the easiest way to get traffic to your website in a short period of time.
Most part-timers are able to follow these tasks very easily.
The thing you need to focus on is consistency & lead capture. Below is a free schedule you can use to make sure you are consistently posting on social networks.
But the thing you can’t overlook is lead capture from your social posting.
This is where LeadSites comes into play…
You can use your LeadSite to share a locked down version of an IDX listing or a blog post. It looks like this:
Here’s the thing:
All “experts” tell you to be on social media, but they rarely tell you that you have to get leads from it.
In order to get leads, you have to ask for contact information. It’s as simple as that. By using Lead Lock on our LeadSites, we’re able to increase the leads real estate agents see from social media by over 300%.
Having a virtual assistant follow the marketing plan below and having it actually capture leads for you:

Then, your blog articles should have calls to actions & popups that get visitors to turn into leads. You can see examples of these on our LeadSites here.

LinkedIn keeps updating their social network and it keeps getting better for Realtors. You can now start using the site to drive consistent updates from your blog posts. These articles should be helpful in nature.
Once people see your LinkedIn updates, you’ll see an increase in traffic back to your website.

Now that your real estate virtual assistant has you getting some traffic to your website, you need to be found on maps.
Look at this:
People search for local businesses (and Realtors) with their map applications.
You need to be found through local maps.
82% of all clients will use their mobile phone as a GPS. You want them finding you when it comes to searching on their phones map.
Here’s how you can make this happen:
It’s the perfect task to outsource! Why? Because it’s easily repeatable and you can make a video about it:
Finally, you’ll want to have your virtual assistant create profiles with your exactly correct address and contact information.
Then have them submit it everywhere!
This is an awesome way to get more leads given current mobile search trends!
Next, let’s have your admin get more traffic from online…
Here’s the thing:
You’re never going to find a real estate virtual assistant that can manage your AdWords campaigns for you.
You can have them watch this quick video to setup your first Google Ad campaign.
In the video:
You’ll see how you can setup a Google Ad campaign for your name and your competitors names.
Why does this work?
Zillow and Trulia have slowly begun to take over your name as a keyword.
That means you probably don’t have strong enough real estate SEO to show up for your own name!
Here’s how your real estate virtual assistant can fix that:
If you set this up, you can show up here when someone Googles you:
Ready for a HUGE shock?
What marketing method do you think provides the lowest cost per lead?
It’s still direct mail.
Well, here’s some thing you can do to make sure you’re generating leads via ALL methods possible.
You’ll want to develop a string of letters and postcards to send expired listings.
Can’t think of what to send them? Try the link above. I have several ideas for you there.
The key is to have a string of 8-12 mailers that you send to them.
Then, your real estate virtual assistant can make sure the right letter goes to the expired listing at the correct time.
Simply notify your assistant (or have them constantly looking for newly expired listings).
And then have them setup a calendar alert on iCalendar or Google Calendar.
This will remind them to send the correct letter to the right expired listing.
Why is this so perfect for real estate virtual assistants?
It literally requires no technical expertise! You type the letters and get them printed. And your assistant’s task is just to make sure they hit the mail at the right time.
It’s a great way to ensure your presence is felt without stressing you out!
Know what a great use for your real estate virtual assistant is?
You can have them interact on social media for you.
Here’s an automated way for them to find leads on Twitter (and other networks) for you:
You can setup email alerts for their email address with IFTTT.
Just setup a quick search on Twitter that pulls up relevant tweets to real estate.
You can then have IFTTT email your real estate virtual assistant every time someone posts something relevant on Twitter.
Write 3 or 4 standard responses that they can send on your behalf.
This is a great way to drive traffic to your LeadSite by Easy Agent Pro or any other website.
Here’s the deal:
With any real estate website, you need to be putting unique text content on your pages.
You can have your real estate virtual assistant make short write ups about neighborhoods for your website pages.
You can have them write about 500-1,000 words of text that describe the community.
That may sound like a lot of text to your real estate virtual assistant.
So, you should break it down for them.
Ask for this:
1) Can you write a short 300-word piece on the top things to do in this community?
2) Can you then write a short 300-word piece talking about the school districts and school names in the area?
3) Finally, can you write a short description based on the Wikipedia article describing the history of the area?
That will give you 900+ words of interesting and useful text for the area.
If you have local enough pages, you can easily rank of the first page of Google with this simple tactic.
Next, you’ll want to update those pages of your website with the added text.
There are hundreds of places for you to get reviews online these days.
The issue most Realtors have is that they fail to promptly followup with clients and get them to leave a review.
You can automate this process with real estate virtual assistants.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1) Write a simple email requesting feedback and thanking them for their business.
Step 2) Have a pre-written email with links to all the places you want reviews ready to send back to the individuals that reply with great feedback.
Step 3) Have your real estate virtual assistant follow up with all clients with these two emails. It’ll keep you in the loop in terms of how clients value your service. And also make sure that clients who love your service can leave reviews online.
Are you looking for one more tactic that your real estate virtual assistant can use to generate leads?
Here’s a cool strategy:
You can have them setup a Pinterest page for you…
…And then create boards for various keywords that you’d like to farm.
I call this SEO Hacking through Pinterest.
Why does this work:
Pinterest boards are excellent on Google searches.
You can often find them on the home page. And they are easy for real estate virtual assistants to setup.
Here’s what you do:
1) Create a page with the keyword in the title and description of the board.
2) Then add 20-30 pins with images related to that keyword
Here’s what it should look like:
You should see the board start to rise in SEO rankings quickly. This is a great tactic for getting real estate buyer leads.
Next, you’ll want to link the page to a landing page or lead capture page of yours. And include your contact information in the description.
When it comes to managing and planning your real estate business, you need to solely be focused on growth.
For example, it’s hard for you to worry about getting more leads when you’re the one that has to spend half the day doing paperwork.
The best real estate virtual assistant can become an essential full support system for real estate agents and brokers. But what does that actually mean?
Here’s a good way to think about it:
You have 100 units of energy in any given day.
And there are repeated tasks in your business that you can easily develop systems for.
This means, you could save energy you’d usually spend on those repeatable systems by paying someone else to do them for you. Thus, you’d be able to earn more because you’d be working on activities that generate more revenue for the business.
Think about it:
If you can work on a marketing activity that’s worth $100 per hour, and your real estate virtual assistant is working on an activity that’s worth $15 per hour.
You are actually achieving $115 per hour worth of work. Whereas, you’d only achieve $15 per hour if you did the real estate virtual assistant tasks.
It isn’t the easiest thing to delegate these real estate virtual assistant tasks. But with some practice, you’ll find it’s the only way to boost your profits.
Are there tasks you give to your support system? What value do you see real estate virtual assistants having in your business?
