Google Yourself For Fun and Profit

     We are way into the twenty first century.  The internet is a part of your business life whether you like it or not.  I don't make the rules but I know what they are.

     If you are in the real estate business ( or any business) today, people want to be able to find you on Google. If you have no web presence, your business will be greatly curtailed.
If you need your forty five hour post license class, call us.

     Maybe you don't care.  Maybe you are making so much money that an extra fifty thousand per year would just be a nuisance.  If that is not the case, Google yourself.

     When you put your name into Google search engine, what happens?  What do you want to happen?  When you put "Ron Climer" into Google, I want my to show up.  I don't want an evangelist from California to show up.  I don't want an ax murderer from Kansas to show up.  I don't want a moving company from Georgia to show up.  I want you to be able to find me.  I want you to be able to find Climer School of Real Estate.

     If you don't have a website and a blog and a You Tube channel and a profile on Facebook and twitter and Google plus and Yahoo and Amazon and Active Rain and Bigger Pockets and Trulia and Zillow and anything else you can find, some body else might show up.  So what?  So that person that is looking for you to send you a referral or some sort of business will not find you. That person that is ready to list their house with you gets frustrated trying to find a phone number or contact info for you.  You don't get that call or that email.  How many times per year do you want that to happen?  Once is too much in my opinion.

     Here is what I would like you to try.  Get a stop watch.  Go to Google.  Type your name into the bar.  See how long it takes you to get a phone number for yourself.  If it takes more than ninety seconds, it is costing you money.   Let's go back and try again.  Type in Your Name, real estate agent Orlando, Florida.  How long?  Can you fix that?  You not only can fix it, you better fix it.  This is costing you $$$$$$$$$$$$$

      Fixing this is a
big job.  Google my name, Ron Climer.  How long does it take to find my phone number?

     Fixing your invisibility problem is a big job.  If you are in real estate, here is a good place to start. Join Active Rain.  It is free.  It is educational.  It is fun.    Go to  .  Join Active Rain.  Start studying SEO.  Start studying the internet.  See how the internet can help you do business.  You can not ignore the internet in the twenty first century.  If you ignore the internet, the internet will ignore you.  You do not want to be ignored by the place where most people go to search for a product.

     Google yourself right now.
