  2. There are three ways to gain access. 1. Get signed up through the broker/agent you will be working with as an assistant and have them pay your quarterly MLS dues. Keep in mind that you will only be able to access that agent's listings and cannot add listings or edit the listings of another agent. If you sign up with the broker, you can and will be able to work for all of the agents in the office (better use of time). 2. IF and only IF the MLS allows access, you can use the agent's access (username and password). It is your responsibilty to know if you can use the agent's access into the MLS. If you don't call the MLS and obtain the appropriate documentation, you will be held accountable and responsible for all unauthorized access and be fined accordingly. Don't accept the agents word as the final approval. 3. Join as an affiliate. You will only be able to search the MLS and have very limited access. You will not be able to input listings, etc. Otherwise, you cannot access the MLS since you are not a licensed REALTOR (member of the board).
  3. Thank you Cheryl for your indepth instructions. I apologize for the late response. On another note, please email me when you get the chance, I would like to discuss another Joomla project with you. Cordially, Carolyn
  4. You can always focus on agents using Point2Agent.com That program has a contact management system on the backend that is pretty good. By doing so, you can remain in OTM and work with marketing and drip campaign. Another plus is that you will hopefully become an expert through certification with the Point2Agent site and the good news will travel to others by association. Carolyn Nelson
  5. Good morning, One of my clients is a real estate coach. He wants to create an affiliate website so he can sell his ebooks and products related to the real estate industry. There will be a lot of logos, banners, text links, etc on all pages and on the left and right side. There will most likely be another page filled with affiliate links, etc. He is looking for something that he can easily manage once it is setup such as editing the content on the home page, add promotional information, approve affiliate requests, and attach all affiliates to an easy, very easy mailing list so he can send out emails to all or some as a distribution. Of course, he wants the requester to fill out a form that will include their full contact information, link, commission amount to be paid to him, etc. What would you recommend? Once again, someone mentioned Joomla, custom websites, and another mentioned 1 Shopping cart. He doesn't want to pay 1 shopping cart for their services (go figure!). He also would like to add a forum to the site for social networking. Anywho, do you have any suggestions? It would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

  6. My average unique visits per day last month was 387 with a max of 495. The hits average 217,805 per month (whatever that means). Carolyn Nelson
  7. Thanks Twanya, I'm been searching for something like this for several years. I am so tired of figuring out PHP and dealing with spammers on one of my websites. Thank You Carolyn Nelson - Carolyn@Onlinerepa.com | www.OnlineREPA.com | www.SEVAG.org | www.REVAProfessionals.com | www.Point2Close.com
  8. Moving a Joomla site can be a little bit tricky because of the configuration changes that need to be made. There are lots of tutorials out there though that guide you through the process if you do a quick search. Hi Leanne, I found a few sites and will review those sites in the morning. The common problem I have found with most of the sites is that it is written in a format for the intermediate and advance users. It is never written in dummy format. Thanks. Carolyn
  9. LOL, Thanks Judy. I'm not a Joomla or database person in anyway. I'm waiting for the host to call me back. I'm tempted to backup everything and upload it on another server just to see what happens. The worst thing that couple possibly happen is that it won't work. LOL Non database sites seem so easy. I asked another techie and the explanation process seemed so much easier if I was watching paint dry. I have made it my mission to learn PHP and MySQL in 2009. Carolyn
  10. Thanks Judy but what do I need to do with the database to make sure it works properly? It is a Joomla website and the database is very large. Carolyn Nelson, Carolyn@OnlineREPA.com | 877 - 717 - 4491 | www.OnlineREPA.com | www.Point2Close.com | www.REVACoach.com | www.REVAProfessionals.com
  11. Hi All! I need to copy a current website with a MySQL database, add it to the same hosting package but copy the site with database to a new domain name. What would be the easiest and less painful way to accomplish this task without causing any problems with the current website? Basically, there would be two domains with the same information and database initially until the client decides on the content he wants to change on the second domain. So instead in rewriting the information, he is going to use one domain as a foundation for another.

  12. I prefer to network and market my business where the potential clients network. Since I don't market locally, I don't send out post cards, letters, etc. Many moons ago, I sent out hundreds of post cards. I only received three or so calls out of 500+ and none panned out to be clients. Most of the others gave incentives to others to do what I do as a real estate assistant.

  13. Laurie, I'm a visual person and believe that most people are also visual, can only see the success if it is in writing. So with that being said, create a process flow chart showing how each segment of your service can integrate with the functions of their business. Show each how certain task will be completed and routed back (process). For example, I do a lot of BPO data entry work for realtors. On my website, I have a BPO process chart showing how the process can be completed smoothly. Each lead I receive always refer back to that chart because it explains the entire process and how it will work to benefit each of them clearly.

  14. It's common to have clients that are either too busy to follow through, too much of a control person to let go, or clients that just don't know when or where to begin. I use Contact 29 (www.contact29.com) as my drip campaign program. I have created a series of follow-up emails that are sent out every three weeks over a period of 5 years. Every three weeks, the lead will receive an email from me that includes a Nugget. Each Nugget reminds the lead of how my services can help them. It is noting long, only one quick sentence. I also include a promotional coupon every six months to catch their attention. I have had clients that initially contacted me 3 years ago contact me last month and signed up for services. I also keep these leads on my holiday mail out list and will call each periodically to follow-up. Overall, I remain consistent with the emails and offer value. You should also consider creating a client assessment form w/checklist. Send it over to the client and have him/her complete it when they get the chance. Assess the information provided and target those areas when marketing or making your follow-up phone calls. Let them know how you can reduce the number of hours they spend completing the task or let them know that if you take over the tasks, how you will compelete it and the benefits they will receive. Show a saving and most clients will not panic over your fees. Carolyn Nelson, Carolyn@OnlineREPA.com | NAR Certified REPA | www.OnlineREPA.com | www.Point2Close.com
