04 December, 2009 | Web design
How many of estate agents have gone to their local web design company to get a website? Is this true for you? It might be best if you read on...
We at Resource Techniques understand the reasons why some estate agents decide to go with local web designers. Its 5 minutes away, they've got the same colloquialisms and the agent probably saw them in the local newspaper/advert (or their niece/nephew works there).
Time has passed and your website is now starting to look old. Do you have embedded Google maps and the latest viewer technology? All the while, competitors have released a new website and have been exploiting their latest venture into social networking.
Try this tip: Go onto Alexa.com and type in your website address at the top of the page. From here estate agents can establish how popular their website is on a worldwide and national scale using an 'Alexa Rank'.
Now it's time for estate agents to do some espionage. Type in a competitors name and view the traffic going to their website. Comparing these two ranks will give estate agents a good indicator as to how their website is performing.
Estate agents that compare their website against their competitors are more likely to guarantee the success of their website than the estate agents that leave it to their local web design company.
