The listing is solid, but the traction is light, sound familiar? Obviously, the main reason brokers post listings are to sell, or lease properties. Sometimes the listing side does not think about the buying side when they post a listing for lease or for sale on www.LDCRE.com, or one of the other CRE listing platforms. People want all the major specs on the offering before they look into it. If you are leaving out most of the specs, or have “Contact us for more information” posted, you are going to see interest drop of, as people tend to assume the worse and/or that it’s over priced.
Leavitt Digital recently launched its API (Application Program Interface) allowing Commercial Real Estate brokerage firms to connect their inventory directly from their website/ internal listing platform to Leavitt Digital’s listing platform. This enables brokerage firms to market their listings for FREE on the largest open network, listing platform while saving hundreds of hours of data implementation and data management. Adding, editing, or deleting listings on a company’s website will have the same impact on Leavitt Digital.
Leavitt Digital conducted surveys on 300+ Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Firms’ websites and online presence. Majority of commercial real estate firms have antiquated websites, no online marketing plan, and no SEO (Search Engine Optimization) plan in place. The place I order my pizza from every Friday night for $23.95 invests more time and money into its website, online marketing and SEO than many brokerage firms that have 100+ listings priced well beyond a thousand pizzas. Why is that? Why does the company selling $20 items invest more time and money to increase sales than the company selling multi-million dollar properties? If a company is able to gain more listings, represent more tenants, and find few more buyers by bettering its online presence, gaining an edge on competition, and significantly increasing its bottom line why wouldn’t they?
