Albuquerque WordCamp at the Sheraton: Part 8 (Final Session)

Albuquerque WordCamp at the Sheraton: Part 8 (Final Session)


WordPress for Real Estate by Jay Thompson...The Poenix Real Estate Guy




The final Session of WordCamp Albuquerque that I attended was probably the most productive.  Jay Thompson...The Phoenix Real Estate Guy did an outstanding job keeping the audience engaged for over a two hour period


He basically covers the do's and don't from his perspective as  successful broker using the WordPress Platform for his Website which generates over 30,000 Leads per year.


He had my attention at go, because my website does not generate that kind of traffic. 


Overall he provided us with some must haves, if we decide to subscribe to the Wordpress Platform as our primary blogging Vehicle. Things like Anti-Spam Plug-Ins, Gravity Form, Related Post Contact forms, and Subscribe to Comments.  These plug-Ins will provide a more seamless blogging experience between the message you convey via your blog, and those who read them.


Indexable IDX was another big topic that was brought up..and Diverse Solution was the discussed in depth, since it is the IDX of choice for all the Tech Savvy Brokers.  


My takeaway from this is as follow:  I need to re-evaluate my current website and reassess its effectiveness.  I have already contacted Diverse Solution, and they are much cheaper than my current provider.  It is now, a matter of when I will make the move.  I will keep you posted.


For a whopping $35, WORDCAMP Albuquerque - 2011 was a resounding success...I look forward to WordCamp 2012

Good Morning C Lloyd, excellent input on web sites form WordCamp.  Keep us posted on the update to your site, it will be interesting to hear the results.

I always think if you walk away from a class or event with ONE good idea to implement (and do it), it was worth the time or dollars spent!    Hope it helps your web site traffic!

C. lloyd,

Great class especially at my kind of price of $35. He gets 30,000 leads a year froma wordpress blog? WOW!!!! One thing to think about if you get rid of your current web site is how long has the site been in existence? If a long time you will lose the time element if you do not keep the domain name. I believe the search engines key off of domain name but I am not certain about that. Let us know what you decide to do as I might have to look at what I am doing.

Thanks for the blog my friend and making comments on my blog. Have a great day.

C Lloyd,

            You blew me away at the price! I think they could have charge $500.00 and it would have been worth it. Did you get Realtor continuing education credits? I am sure that will pay off quickly!

C.Lloyd:  Do you have the link for Diverse Solution?  I went to the .com site and it's just a domain for sale.  Thanks for the information on this.  I'm just thinking of changing web companies too.

Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen:

I appreciate your very thoughtful comments. WordCamp Albuquerque was a success for me.  I have taken steps towards implementing some of the things that I have learned there.  Besides Diverse Diverse Solution there is also Dynamic Page Solution
