How To Setup and Maximize Hit Router for Generating Leads

Every member on AR has access to "Hit Router" on their "My Home" page.  Setting up Hit Router and maximizing it's potential with lead generation and IDX solutions is exactly why it was created.  The vision and goal of Hit Router was to help our members be able to direct visitors and traffic to their customized IDX sites, then convert those leads to clients and transactions.  There are a couple ways you can do this, and we'd love to show you how.  Understanding how to set this up properly can make all the difference in the leads you could be generating from your AR Blog.

Bob Stewart and I will be showing members how to best utilize Hit Router this Thursday at 2:00pm PST.  Join us if you'd like to know more about the ways you could be using Hit Router on your Blog and for your business. 

In the Webinar, We'll be Covering the Following and more:

How To Setup and Capture Your Local Market Leads

How To Create City Search Campaigns

Using IDX -vs- Websites

Understanding The "CPC Click Campaigns"

How To View Results and Reports

Understanding What "Hit Router Credits" are, and How it all Works

(No RSVP or Pre Registration Required)

If you are unable to attend this particular training, we will be doing some repeats in the future.  We'll also be recording certain sessions that can be reviewed later as refreshers, or by other members who may be interested in some of these topics and trainings.  We hope to have these available weekly to the AR Community.  If you have topics or suggestions for future AR Webinars, let us know your needs.

Hi Brad: Did that use to be called the "listing router" or am I confused with something else?

:)

Posted by Matt Listro, Your Credit Repair Expert (National Credit Fixers - Matt Listro) almost 9 years ago

Matt - Yes.  Hit Router was formerly referred to as "Listing Router" and recently changed.  Sorry for the confusion, hope all is well. :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

Hi Brad - sorry another question - sorry to be a NOOB - is the hit router only for Realtors?

:)

Posted by Matt Listro, Your Credit Repair Expert (National Credit Fixers - Matt Listro) almost 9 years ago

Matt - I'm not a REALTOR and I use it, guess you'll just have to join the webinar to find out?  :-O 

Hope you can make it. 

That would be a great question to ask when you come to the training. 

PS - No need to comb your hair or dress up for these AR webinars, that's a beautiful thing.  lol~

Hi Brad: I didn't know that - I had clicked on it before to try it out and it looked like the Listing router (now the Hit Router) didn't work for me so I assumed it was just for Realtors - I will have to check it out.

Thanks!

Posted by Barb & Sal Dragotta, Macomb County Michigan almost 9 years ago

Had a problem getting a unique URL for my searches. Talked to the help desk for my website. Needed to create a LINKED SEARCH.  Now Hit Router works like a charm for me

So, if others have a Linked Search function, this may be the secret and save some time getting set up.

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) almost 9 years ago

Barb and Sal - understanding the process is important, implementing an effective plan is the key to making this work. :-))

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

Irene - this is the exact message we are trying to convey to members.  You'll want to check out my next post, it's an important announcement that ties this all together.  The time you've invested in getting this to work correctly may be the most important thing you've done on AR. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

this looks like a great idea - I am sorry I missed the webinar.

Posted by Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties) almost 9 years ago

Brad,

 

I watched the webinar and do not see where I could have done anything different when setting my free hit router up.  I still can not get it to hit my website from another computer.  I checked the link and made sure it pushed me to my site, I have checked my area on the campaign search and no one has done anything as far as that goes - still .49 cents.  Maybe it is my website? Just unable to push it there?  Thank you for the webinar - it was very informative.

Posted by Lisa Rees, Coldwell Banker Reilly & Sons Real Estate Agent (Coldwell Banker Reilly & Sons) almost 9 years ago

Hi Lisa - you should use an IDX site and not a website as explained in the webinar video.  The free market searches will only work if a visitor is on YOUR page, profile, or Blog post, and no one else has paid for a campaign in the area they are searching.  (you'd have to logout, go to your page or profile, then test it from there) If you are still having challenges or difficulties getting this to work, please call me in the morning so I can walk you through it and explain all the details.  It might be easier that way. :-)

Lise - sorry you missed the webinar, but at least you can still watch what was recorded, it's almost as good as being there... kinda..  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

Sorry I missed the webinar but thanks for providing us with a link and download to it. It seems that AR is always coming up with great tools to help us. Thanks.

Michael - hope you enjoy the webinar video, there is some great tips and advice on there, and I hope you can use it. :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

Hi Brad ~ I just watched the webinar video on generation leads from "Hit Router." Thank you for posting it.

I am happy to report, thanks to Bob Stewart who walked me through the process when I set up my Outside Blog, that my free "markets" were set up correctly. I send everyone to my Vision site. Each City was set up correctly, they did not go to my home page, they actually went to the City they were requesting.

 I was so happy when I tested them that they were doing what you were talking about in the webinar, they went to the city and not just a home page.

 I also just finished settingup  my new campaigns for Hit Router. I sent them to my vision site as well and am looking forward to many leads from this. Thanks again for the webinar, you AR guys really are the coolest!!

Posted by Terrie Leighton, Reno Real Estate Agent ~ Selling Homes in Reno (Ferrari-Lund Real Estate ) almost 9 years ago

Terrie - that is so awesome!!  I just reblogged your comment over on the "Hit Router" Important Announcement post, I hope you don't mind.  Thanks so much for taking the time to share that and I KNOW you will be sharing your successes with us all in the future.  I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing how putting this all together will work for you.

You rock, and Happy Mothers day to boot!  :-)

Thanks for this webinar.  It was very helpful and took care of one more "To Do item" on my list.  I wanted to find out about this for  awhile now.  I thought the presentation was very clear and well presented.  The questions I had were answered at the end.  Now I am going to implement it.

Mark - it is a first come first serve basis but members can be outbid on the paid campaigns.

Posted by Christopher Webster, Columbia South Carolina Real Estate For Sale (Carrington Real Esate Services) almost 9 years ago

Chris - it works.  We had nearly 100,000 homes searches run on AR month before last, I'm sure the numbers are even higher now.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 9 years ago

Okay, I think I am starting to understand how it works a little bit better.  I am also trying out Market Leader - which is quite a bit more expensive!

How does Hit Router differ from Pay Per Click via search engines?

Posted by Donald Keys (HomeSmart - Phoenix, AZ) over 8 years ago
Hey Don - there are two sections to hit router. The local markets is free to setup and link to your idx. The CPC section compared to search engine CPC is typically more than 50-80% cheaper. Our min. bid starts at .45 cents compared to 3-4 dollars per click.

Posted by Angela Shopper (Wingman Realty, LLC) almost 8 years ago

Hi Angela - unfortunately we do not use the Webex account anymore so the links that used to show these videos are no longer active, I will remove them right away.  You can always join us at ActiveRain University for some free training if you'd like, there is a link on the main page of AR.  Just look for ActiveRain University and we'll hope to see you there. :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) almost 8 years ago

Hello Brad, I watched this webinar at least twice, and set up a bunch of landing pages as you and Bob suggested.  However, my IDX solution is iFramed in but still on my main site.

I seem to see a moderately large number of what I think are other AR member hits as they are perhaps just checking to see who's bidding each city.  The reason I sense that is that the number of Bounces is much higher than for a PPC visitor stream from Google.

I know Google has put in measures to prevent our Competitors from running up our PPC pay outs.  Has AR put in any measures to similarly protect us, your paying customers?  For example, if another AR member is logged in it would seem that Hit Router could check that IP address and not count visits from those IP's as chargeable.

I expect there may be other filtering possibilities as well that I don't know about; the point is I don't mind paying for legitimate home-shopper clicks and want to know I'm not subsidizing the account of another AR member or otherwise paying for useless clicks.  Thanks!  John

Posted by Alexander- Slocum, Realty Team- Vancouver WA Real Estate (Premiere Property Group, LLC - Vancouver Washington) almost 8 years ago

Do you have a video or something I could read about hit router? I just set mine up but I do not know how it works.

Posted by Alan Grizzle, Full Time Realtor, Lifelong Resident of Dahlonega (Chestatee Real Estate) over 7 years ago

Alexander-Slocum REMAX Team - AR does has some tools and instruments in place that prevent this from happening but for a technical explanation, you'd need to contact the tech dept at support@activerain.com for a better understanding than I can provide here in the comments.

Alan - no videos that I'm aware of, but there are plenty of Blog posts out there, just search "Hit Router" using the AR search tool, or you can check the AR Manual at ActiveRainManual.com.  Hope that helps. :-)

Let me know!

Maybe I can do a webinar when I get back from the road, you might also want to check out the schedule at AR University, there could be a class on this topic already scheduled? Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.
