Internet Marketing for Homebuilders - a Must!

Posted by Spencer Powell

internet marketing homebuildersAt first glance, the chart on the left might leave many of you with horrifying flashbacks.  But fear not because there may be a new glimmer of hope.  According to HousingEconomics.com, home sales are expected to increase in the coming year.  If they are indeed correct, this will be the first real increase in sales we have seen since the housing market crashed  in '06 like a drunken and underage joyrider. While this possible increase is good news in general, is your company positioned appropriately to take advantage of this?  Home builders need to start getting found online now by potential buyers so they can set themselves up for success in the near future.  Having an online marketing strategy as a homebuilder can only be beneficial.  With so many people shopping and doing research for practically everything online, it is important to have a strong internet presence.  Picture this: the housing market is beginning to pick up again and your website comes up on the second page of a Google search while all your competitors are coming up on the first.  Chances are you'll look more depressed than the above chart does from '06-'11. 

So if you haven't already, start creating high-quality content for your website to make your website worth visiting.  Create landing pages to generate leads and optimize each of your web pages to make it easier for customers to find you because you want to be the first company people think if the housing market makes its perousia.

1.  The SEO Company Suggests Specific Keyword Densities:  They tell you that your blogs and other content should be written with the sole purpose of embedding all the right keywords as often as you can.  Run away even faster if the company tells you that the best keyword density is 12.4%.  I'm guessing that the average engineer at Google is a lot smarter than the average SEO consultant.  That being said, you're better off writing content that REAL PEOPLE will enjoy and link to rather than writing content to try and lure the search engines into ranking you better.  Yes, you need to get your keywords in your content, but try make it "natural" sounding.

Internet Marketing for Builders: Strategy Before Design

Posted by Spencer Powell

Dec 20, 2012 7:03:00 AM

Internet marketing has given small/local builders leverage to compete with larger, national and regional builders and remodelers.  The problem is that so many builders are doing it wrong. They build their website and then they start to make a plan to generate leads online.  This is completely backwards.
