We cancelled after 5 months, and almost $5,000 spent (this figure included $2500 for content that we paid a vendor that Eric referred us to). At the end, we were lucky to get 1-2 visitors per day, and ended up getting one $40k buyer lead. After 4 months, we found out that none of our 80+ blog posts were indexed, and we weren't allowed access to our Google Analytics. They were willing to send us a weekly report, but would not allow us access. When we decided to move the site to RealGeeks, we were told that we could have access to our Google Analytics, as long as we agreed to not share the results with anyone else. If you go with this solution, plan on incorporating a PPC campaign, as the organic didn't come through for us, even after 5 months of supplying content.
I have tried many of the websites and CRM options on the market. Upon signing up, most are easy to get up and going, but that is where it ENDS. Most are cookie cutter sites, many of which you do not own, and if you have a question, feel free to call a 1-800# and talk to someone at tech support, only to find out that what I was wanting is not possible. I am currently with Tribus, and very happy. Not only have they been accommodating to my needs and schedule, the support has exceeded my expectations! I have a designated support person who ROCKS and is super responsive to my website & CRM needs. As a matter of fact, just today, prior to posting this, I have had 3 interactions with my support person. In addition, Eric is very active in these forums in a professional manner. Not only assisting us as agents, not I.T. professionals, but also having an ear to the ground to what our needs are, thus consistently providing a better product.
After about a six month run up, traffic increased 10 fold over what I had been previously getting. It has since settled to about 5x. Have not had the success that the Speicher team has had but we have had a number of closings.
