Greg Taylor: How To Take Your Real Estate Website From Good To Great

Show Notes

According to Greg Taylor, founder of Marketing Press, there are only three objectives for a website that real estate professionals should strive for:

  1. Lead generation
  2. Customer loyalty
  3. Building a community around your service

Greg says that “one of the biggest mistake everyone makes when it comes to their website is either spending too much time worrying about what it looks like, or wanting the results that the successful agents are achieving without the drive to put in the hard work around content creation.”

Greg is a firm believer in strategising first and designing second in order to turn your website into a lead generation and client advocacy machine. Join us as we discuss how to take your real estate website from good to great.
