The economy’s in the tank (no news there), and real estate sales are… well, at the bottom of that tank, with just 416 sales in Edmonton in December, so far. (The Edmonton Real Estate Blog is good for giving such sales updates.)
That’s why we at What-Customers-Say.com have decided not to charge for agent marketing profiles. Well, that’s not the only reason, but that’s a big & good one.
No charge for marketing profiles on What-Customers-Say.com
Yup, $0. Totally free. So whether you have a marketing profile or not (see an example of one here), there’s really no reason not to participate in What-Customers-Say.com — and let your clients help you with your marketing. …Not that we’re pressuring you to join! :) We’re just knocking down barriers for those agents who can benefit from our services but may not be doing well enough to provide anything in return right now.
What does a “free profile” mean?
Y’know when you sign up for a free version of something, like, say, some software application, and you get this really watered down version where you have to pay to add on all the stuff you really need? Well, we’re not going to put you through that. You get all the bells & whistles that are available today, including:
- Your photo
- Your marketing messaging
- Your contact info
- A property listing
- Add-a-comment (testimonial) feature
- Email updates every time someone leaves you a review
- Details about activity on your account (on your sign-in page)
Well, how is What-Customers-Say.com going to make money?
Dunno. Got any ideas? ;) We’ll see. But what matters right now and for as long as our little site is around is that Edmonton real estate agents, Sherwood Park real estate agents, St. Albert real estate agents… and every agent across Alberta & the country (as soon as we go national) will be able to get a free profile. And that profile — with all the wingdings listed above — will cost you a whopping nuthin’.
What do you think about that? Let us know!
