Join the Internet's First Network of Business Cards ~ Build, broadcast, and discover business cards on the web.
BusinessCard2 is another great way to add to your online presence. It is similiar to LinkedIn and will be picked up by all the major search engines.
Bill Gassett's BusinessCard2 - here is the link to what my business card looks like on the site. One of the things you will notice while viewing my card is that you are allowed to add as many links as you like to other sites you may have. I have added both my Active Rain blog as well as my other Metrowest Massachusetts Blog. I have also added my Hopkinton Massachusetts Real Estate website.
The fact that you are able to add more than a couple of sites has allowed me to "deep link" some of the interior pages of my website which is a good SEO practice. When you have links to interior pages of your website Google and other search engines view your site as having valuable information. This will help boost the overall page rank of your site over time.
A quick summary of benefits:
For those of you who don't seem to understand SEO, joining sites such as BusinessCard2, Linkedin, ect are not social networking sites like Active Rain where you invest an abundance of time. You will take a few minutes to create a profile and you will be done. If someone contacts you later and they want to join your network or want to do business with you...GREAT! Not only are sites like BusinessCard2 valuable for networking but they will also increase your websites position in search engine results.
** In the Real Estate world it is crucial to have an online presence. I know if I was selling my home I would not want to be using a "secret agent". I would want someone in my corner who knew how to expose my home to the masses online. One of the easiest ways to see if a Realtor will do a good job marketing a home is to see if they have a good online presence.
This can be accomplished by Googling a Realtors name. There should be pages and pages of results!! If you Google a Real Estate agents name and don't come up with much information it means they don't know how or have not invested the time to market themselves on the internet. If they don't know to market themselves, how could you possible expect them to do a good job marketing your home?
An agent connected online is more often than not a successful agent.
