New Developments in Miami

August 16, 2014

icon3

Earlier this month we wrote a feature on Marketic, a Miami SEO company. We recently caught up with Ryan Stewart, the Miami SEO expert, to see what they were up to now.

We were fascinated at what we found. The team at Marketic has joined forces with Miami’s #1 real estate agent for Pre Construction properties, Ines Flax. The two dynamic companies are combining their knowledge in their field to create 5 new websites.

These aren’t just any websites – these are real estate based, SEO driven websites that are set to collect over 1,000,000 visits each month. Those are pretty staggering numbers from a real estate website, so we wanted to find out a little more about these sites.

  1. Miami Pre Construction Properties: www.miamipreconstructioncondos.net – this is a website, as the title may sound, dedicated to new construction properties shooting up all across the Miami skyline. This website will feature an interactive experience for users to come and connect with these properties before they officially launch.
  2. Florida Water Front Homes: www.floridawaterfronthomes.org – much like the one listed above, this website deals EXCLUSIVELY with water front properties along the Western shore of South Florida. These are highly sought after properties, and the team is using technology to connect property seekers with property sellers.
  3. Luxury Condo Rentals: www.miamicondosforsale.org – this one is arguably the most intuitive as it aims to connect those seeking high end rentals with those who are trying to rent them out. You can think of it as an AirBnB for luxury property listings only.

We also turned to the internet to find out some more information about Ines Flax, and this is what we found:

  • She is always ranked in the top 1% of real estate agents worldwide
  • She is always ranked in the top 5% of real estate agents in Miami
  • She is always listed on the Florida Top 100
  • She has sold more homes than any other real estate agent in Miami Beach in the last 25 years
  • She has two bachelors degrees and a master’s degree
  • She is a full time member of the Local Chamber of Commerce (Miami)

All in all it sounds like Ms. Flax is a winner in the Miami real estate market and we are really looking forward to seeing what these two juggernauts cook up.

Early predictions coming from their camp are deducting that they will sell over $40,000,000 in real estate this coming year.

With numbers like these, we had to ask for more information about the matter. They send us the following calculations:

  • 1,000,000 monthly hits
  • 10% conversion rate = 100,000 monthly leads
  • 1% sales rate = 1,000 monthly sales
  • Average sale of $4,000,000 x 1,000 = $40,000,000 in sales

That is a truly staggering amount. The project is just getting underway so only time will tell if these numbers will actually pan out.

First you have to visit their site on www.buybackboys.com and price your kindle fire after choosing the write category that your tablet belongs to. When pricing it you need to determine its condition and how you would like to be paid once you ship your Kindle fire tablet. Since you will be shipping the tablet you need to be accurate o the shipping details to avoid your parcel from getting lost. You will be receiving a box and a prepaid shipping label after 3-4 days that you will use to ship your Kindle fire to BuyBack boys or you can simply use your own postage paid label.

Meaning if the company offers to buy your kindle with $50, then BuyBack boys will offer to buy with $60. However, this only applies to tablets that have been quoted $50 and above and to other buyback sites that may exist. It does not apply to any auction sites such as eBay etc.

Online Marketing Tips For Small Businesses

August 1, 2014

written by: Mary Jean

Online marketing is a fast growing industry and it is
important for small business owners to harness its influence to enhance the
visibility of their establishments. Growing an online presence is the key to
marketing products, getting sales and widening clientele base. With the right
tools and strategies, it can boost any small business to better heights.

The first benefit of online marketing is that it is more
affordable than the other traditional forms of advertising. It affords small
businesses the opportunity to compete with bigger brands which dominate the
content market, at a decent price. Small budgets and limited resources mean
that small and mid-sized businesses do not often have the luxury of digital and
print advertisements. Blogs, social networking sites and email marketing are
however generally free ways of online marketing. They attract traffic to the
business website at no extra cost.

Before setting up targeted ads, it is fundamental to have
studied the customer demographics and found suitable platforms. Avoid just
selling the business, but also share expertise and things relevant to the
industry with potential customers. If it is a blog for instance, it can have
commentaries or DIY articles; these are easier found in search results
therefore increasing traffic to the brand. There should also be efforts to
engage the potential clients as much as possible, by allowing them to ask
questions or encouraging them to give feedback. The aim is to ensure that every
interaction leaves a big impact.

Another online marketing strategy which is often over looked
is finding online niches that are compatible to your business and participating
in them. Business owners can give relevant information and advice then link the
information to their products or sites. In this kind of marketing; the more
informative and relevant the content, the more credibility the business gets.
It is therefore important to be resourceful to avoid looking like someone who
wants to up-sell their products and services.

While putting up ads online, businesses should strive to
make them simple and commercially impactful. There is no need to over load
people with unnecessary information such as company history- leave this for the
company website. Also, when using email marketing options ensure that the
mailing list actually consists of people who are interested in the product or
service the business has to offer. Spamming peoples inboxes is annoying and off
putting and bad for the business at the end of the day.

Small Business Marketing Tips

written by: Ryan Stewart

If you have a small business, then marketing is something that you need to approach with care. You will not have the large budget that larger companies in Miami have. This means that you cannot fight using their tactics because you will lose. Small business marketing requires smarts. If you want to be the more established competition, you have to be one step ahead.

So, what can you do to market your small business in Miami effectively?

Think Local
There is no shame in thinking local when it comes to your small business. In fact, doing so may be your saving grace. You need to establish yourself within your area. One of the ways that you can achieve this is by using geographical SEO methods. By optimizing your business for local search, you have a higher chance of attracting clients from your locale. This means that you will be more visible to people who are interested in the products that you offer in your area. We caught up with Ryan Stewart, owner of Marketic, a Miami SEO company based right here in Miami, FL. He told us the following about SEO:

Make sure that you are optimizing everything on your website, from images to text files. Once you have done that, you can either hire a local SEO company or check elance.com for some talented freelancers.

In order to make an impact on your community, you should also become an active member. When the opportunity comes for you to sponsor a community event, do so. By being a sponsor, you will have a tremendous opportunity to raise your business brand in the locale, which will help boost your revenues.

You should also print flyers, bookmarks and business cards for distribution in your area. People will only take note of your business if you do something to bring your brand to their attention. Offer a few branded products to the public via local schools, libraries, hospitals and so on.

Collaborate
You should consider taking on a local partner or two as part of your small business marketing strategy. These partners should be businesses who are not in direct competition with you. You can create campaigns that help all the parties involve attract more clients to each of your businesses. These may include giveaways and coupons among other things. Here is a great video that we found on YouTube about some GREAT marketing methods, especially if your business is on a tight budget.

Collaboration is beneficial because it helps you reach the client base of your partners that you would never have had access to otherwise. You will also be able to render similar services to them. All the parties involved will be able to enhance their reach which usually translates to higher revenues.

miami-seo-companyNetworking and Referral
Always take time to build a network of people who can benefit your business. When you attend any social gatherings, ensure that you meet and greet as many people as possible. If you make a good impression, such people will remember your business the next time they need products that you sell. Alternatively, they will refer others to your business.

Also ask your existing clients to refer people to your business when they require your services. You will be surprised at how many more clients you can obtain in this manner.

At the end of the day, you need to be tenacious and shameless if you want to market your small Miami business.

written by: Hewey Turks

According to CNN, this is one of the best times to invest in luxury Miami real estate,
as people from all over the world and not just locals are finding out.

surrounding areas and builders are responding with a variety of

almost the whole year round. Miami also has a great location right on
the Atlantic Ocean. It is very easy to find a place that overlooks the
ocean.

2. There is a revival of the economy: The real estate market in Miami
was especially hard hit by the collapse of the economy since there
happened to be a glut of housing available at that time. There were no
takers for fancy apartments and houses that came into the market right
when the market went bad. Since the market is now looking up, it is
possible to buy properties at good prices with the assured knowledge
that will appreciate in value.

3. Foreign investors are showing a great deal of interest in this
market. According to reliable estimates, more than half of all real
estate transactions in Miami involve a buyer from abroad. If you were to
compare this with the figures for the United States overall (under 10
percent), then you will realize how crucial this factor is. Buyers
include wealthy people from Asia, Europe and South and Central America.

4. There are many attractive options available to choose from: Anyone
looking for through the luxury apartment for sale Miami listings will
see many properties available. There are quite a few luxury condos
promoted by the biggest names in the business and designed by
international architects and decorators. For instance, anyone looking
for a condo for sale in Florida should just check out the Aventura Echo
building to have a good idea of what the best apartments in this place
are like. This project is a very luxurious one that caters to people
with very discerning needs.
