IDX and lead capture

Knock, knock. This room sounds hollow. It probably is but I'll just leave this little note on the table to see if anyone comes in and has a thought. Sara and I have been going like gangbusters developing a business model and growth plan. We have done some extensive tinkering with the website www.teamjohnston.com . Funny how one small little office can have a nicer website than a national franchise. ..poke, poke. No names mentioned here of course.

We are developing a search engine marketing plan and have strategically selected some areas where we want to be in a stronger position with certain keywords. In certain places we score very well and in others lets just say improvement is needed. With certain words we come up 8th or 9th on Yahoo and 71st with Google. We'll keep everyone posted on our progress as it will serve as a testament and a blue print for others.

Oh yeah the point of this. If anyone out there has any experience they like to share with us regarding their search engine marketing, linking your site to IDX in order to get all the mls listings on your site or any lead capture tools that work for you let us all know. Are you using Top Producer 7i, MLXchange professional or Point2Agent? How are they working out? That's it for now, other than the more we can share with each other the more we can help each other.
