Monetizing a real estate site

by 1 comments
I have a major site coming up next year and my client is a very respectable person in my hometown and in the whole state.

He asked me can I make him a real estate website never seen before in my country. The niche is very occupied and has one minority site that reaps all the customers.

Now I have already made one real estate site for my other client and she only gets around 100+ visitors per day (she is only targeting a region of the state).

This project should be different. My clients idea is to flip the site when time comes. In the meanwhile it should produce some income.

Is there such thing as an affiliate program for selling real estates or should the whole site be based on other agencies to advertise on the site?

Don't want to end up unprofessional and loosing my client money.

Any idea should be more than welcome.

    I guess it depends where your client is. In the US only licensed real estate agents can earn a commission from the sale of real estate. Worse, they have to be licensed in each state they wish to sell real estate.

    Affiliate commissions could be earned for other real estate services however.

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    Back in my old corporate and sales days, we used to have a lot of conferences, team-building events, and stuff. That was interesting. You meet with your colleagues from all over the world and you talk. So, on one of these events I talk to a guy. He asked me how many clients I had at the moment. I said around 30. He was like, that was great. That was good for you. I wasn't so optimistic. Most of my customers at that moment were small and family-owned companies. That means lots of meeting. Calls. Visits. Orders. It was a logistic nightmare, to be honest. Then he asked me, what is the ratio of the customers I lost and win over a year. I said it's not such a big deal. I lose a customer or two. It happens, but at the same time, I find two or three new ones over the same time period. So, I'm still good. Then he said, now you see why it's great to have small customers. You can never get in trouble. Guess, it was my turn to ask questions. To my huge surprise, he said that he had only one client. Then, he said the name of this client and everything become quite clear. This company had quite a reputation outside its national borders. I was totally honest. I would give all of my clients for this one. This guy in charge of this VIP client told me, I should think twice. If he loses this client, he loses everything. All I could say is that was not a very likely scenario.
