KW Profile Tips

Getting your profile to 100% is often the first task for new agents. However, it’s important to note that a 100% profile does NOT mean that your websites are set up. The profile has very little effect on the sites. Rather, it powers your custom profile page on kw.com and in the white pages. It is important to have a great profile to increase your chances of getting agent referrals and also of getting new clients through the kw.com website. 

Here are some tricks to make the most of your profile:

1. Use your office address (not home) but put in the zip code of your farm area. This way, anyone searching for an agent by zip code will find you and you won’t have to share a zip with all the other agents in your office!

2. Read carefully how to enter the social media. Most agents do it incorrectly and end up with broken links on their profile page. (n.b. KW only accepts a personalized LinkedIn address, not a public one)

3. Take some time writing your bio and keep in mind that it will be seen by prospects as well as other agents.

4. If you don’t have a blog, enter the URL of your eEdge website in the blank for “blog.” This way, you have links to both websites on your profile.

5. If you have a YouTube video introducing yourself or your team, enter it in the YouTube blank. The video will be embedded to the right of your profile. Don’t have a video? Create one, or use a KW video.

eAgentC additional pages

One of the best things about your eAgentC site is that you can add a ton of additional pages on any topics you want! Not only does extra content give visitors to your site more information to look at but it also raises your site’s SEO value. You can add pages in the eAgentC site admin under 3.7 So what kind of pages can you add? Here are some ideas:

• Create a dedicated page for each of your featured listings including photos, videos, text, community links and a map

• Create a page for each of your farm areas (communities, subdivisions or towns) with information about the shopping, schools, restaurants etc.

• Showcase your marketing and sales capabilities by adding your marketing plan.

• New Construction page.

• Mortgage information and contacts.

• Real Estate Market Updates.

• Pages of community quick searches.

• School information.

Where to find YouTube videos for your site.

YouTube videos can make your site more dynamic and interesting for visitors, but where to get the videos? Here are some ideas:

1. Post your virtual tour on youtube so you can embed it to your site.

2. Film yourself. You can use your iPhone, iPad or built in computer camera to take a video of you talking about Real Estate News or introducing yourself and your team.

3. Use your iPhone or iPad to take a video of your listings with commentary. There are also several free apps you can use to edit your videos quickly and easily. Try Splice for iPhone.

4. Don’t have a listing? Take a video of a community or attraction like a beach, park or shopping district in your area.

5. Create your own cartoon videos with a free video editing program. I created this video using www.powtoon.com.

6. Embed any of the Keller Williams videos like this Month in Real Estate, buyer tips or seller tips.

7. Use a home builder’s video to showcase a subdivision.

**Be careful what videos you embed. Don’t use other agent or brokerages’ videos. You don’t want to have another agent or broker featured on your website!
