How to Convert Internet Real Estate Leads to Listings and Sales.

Web Leads DON’T Suck!

do internet real estate leads convertThe National Association of Realtors research shows the average buyer searches for 2 weeks on their own prior to contacting a real estate agent. For this reason agents now need a strategy designed for internet lead conversion that can be completed over a 10 – 14 day time period. Prior to contacting a real estate agent, potential buyers and sellers can be reluctant to releasing valid contact information. Although the ideal internet lead has email, mailing address, phone number and search criteria, the majority of internet leads we follow up are missing part or most of this information. One of my top producing agents in Canada Ralph Wiber couldn’t help but hear agents time and time again saying “web leads suck” or “internet leads are a waste of time” and was kind enough to share this amazing and proven web lead strategy with us all and help others with the ongoing challenge of not knowing how to convert an internet lead. This method is a combination of persistence and marketing offers that are designed to create motivation for the buyer and seller to give us more information. The formula is a combination of:
  • Email
  • Direct Mail (post)
  • Video Email (
  • Phone Calls
Once you make contact you must adjust your message and plan to fit the client’s needs and timelines. Once you schedule the appointment, determine their timeline or verify their contact information then stop the system. If you have not scheduled an appointment and have missing information then the lead goes into the 10 day follow up system.
