OK, for years, I've always maintained my own website. I've blogged about it before, but in case you've missed it, I'm a control freak. I liked designing it and updating it and being in control of how things were presented. That site still exists at www.donnahomes.net.
However, I did not think my site was being utilized to its fullest, so I made a change. I did go to a templated site, which I never wanted to do, because I don't like looking like others, but I decided that it didn't matter to look like others. What mattered most was to create more business and if it looks like someone elses site, but buyers and sellers love the information provided, it's a better website. My new sites are:
I now have a branded site as well as an unbranded site which will help with my marketing campaigns. Though they're templates, I have still modified them a bit to make them my own. Check them out and let me know what you think. (If you're an agent and you fill out a form just to see more info, please say you're an agent in the comments section so I know not to follow up with you)
I'm so excited to see how this changes my business!
** By the way, if you're interested in more information on how you can get a site like above, drop me a line and let me know. I'll get you the name and number of the great gentleman who hooked me up with my new project!
