"I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that my investment in the PFRE Real Estate Photographer Directory paid off very well. A Chicago Realtor did a Google search for "real estate photographer" and found the directory on photographyforrealestate.net. The Realtor e-mailed me while I was coming back from another shoot. We talked by phone and I booked the shoot within minutes of the request. The Realtor (now my client) was happy with the experience and the product that we were able to deliver to her. The shoot turned into providing a property brochure, a floor plan and a single property website. It's likely that I'll pick up her agency as a client with the other ten agents in the office."
Wow, great success story Doug. Thanks for the feedback. The reason this all works is that this blog comes up as the top un-sponsored line on Google whenever anyone does a search for "real estate photographer" and the center top link on the blog is the link to the directory. Try it out to see what your future clients will see. If you're not in the directory and would like to sign-up go to the "REP Directory signup" page. There is a link to it along the top of the blog header image just to the right of the REP directory link.
