Long Tail KeywordsLong tail keywords are those three and four keywordphrases which are very, very specific to whatever you areselling. Whenever a buyer uses a highly specific searchphrase, they are near the end of the 12 week cycle.In virtually every case, such very specific searches are farmore likely to convert to escrows than general genericsearches like California Real Estate that tend to be gearedmore toward the type of research that consumers typicallydo in the first couple weeks.Examples:Approved Short Sale in Irvine, CAForeclosure deals in Newport Beach, CA 926604 Bedroom Homes in Mission Viejo under $300,000

I am a Real Estate agent with XYZ Realty, and no I do not want to list your home (ha ha). I simply would like to partner with you in marketing your home directly to buyers that are looking in your area. Mr. Smith if I brought you a buyer would you pay me a commission for that if I handle all the paperwork, open escrow and get them Approved with my lender? In the event that you would like to list your property then I can help you with that as well, and we can discuss at that time the additional exposure. First let me explain my marketing program:I am going to build a Website exclusive to your property that will auto feed to all the major search engines, such as Zillow and Yahoo. I will also give you access to the back end of the website so you can track Hits, add photos, check stats etc.
Where to Begin www.roboform.com this program is perfect for the tedious process of signing up for all the asset manager portals on the internet. Buy a list of Asset Managers with Links, this is the best one I found - http://listbankrepos.com/reo-asset- managers-list.aspx

Now What?Instead of calling and asking for bpos or listings - Send a SHORT email (the shorter the better).The worst thing you can do is blindside an asset manager with a phone call asking for listings.The majority of AMs do not pick up their phones for that reason alone and if you leave a message it is surely to be erased.Back to the emails - You NEED to read this:Send them early Monday morning just before the AM has arrived to work. The email will not get buried below the hundreds of other emails in the inbox - It will stand alone at the top and if it is the first email the AM reads that day you will may have caught them before they read the email about the copper being stolen out of another house and now their day is ruined.If you are going to buy a list of contacts (I really do not like this trend) be sure to get email addresses - The phone numbers are worthless.
Recap - “The Process” You earn a Listing Opportunity Go out take a couple pictures of the exterior of the property prior to the appointment Build a website (automatically builds listing presentation too) Use your MyListingPresentation eBook to give an amazing listing presentation Knock out the competition Get the Listing – Now What! Now take high definition pictures of the exterior and interior Order a Custom text-code sign rider personalized for that listing Post to all your Social Networks Write a Blog using the Top 5 Home Search Key Words Subdivision, City, Zip, High School and Elementary School Email before and after Screen Shots of the Google search to showcase the listing. Post to Craig’s List twice a week at a minimum Email every Tuesday and Every Friday the HITS from the website and your blog
