How to Drive Leads to a Website Using Google AdWords

Written by The Professor

Real Geeks sites are designed to get the highest conversion rate, but in order to convert traffic, you need to drive high-quality traffic to your website.  High-quality means that the users are interested in buying or selling.

Two of the best ways of driving traffic to your site are getting rankings in search engines (organically) or by buying ads for your site (pay-per-click).

Ranking organically can take a lot of time and effort to build your site’s authority in the search engines.  Real Geeks sites are SEO friendly and rank well for our customers who have put in the time and effort.  If you don’t have the time, one of the more effective ways is by buying ads on Google search, called AdWords.

If you don't have time to learn Google AdWords yourself, Real Geeks offers a marketing program called Real Leads.  The Real Leads marketing team will handle the Google AdWords and drive traffic to your website, so you can spend time doing what you do best-- selling homes!

Below is a demo of the Real Geeks platform you can watch to see how it can convert the traffic you're driving from Google AdWords to leads.  It also covers how you can follow up with them using our CRM and convert those leads into customers.
