ClickSold Feature – Content Scheduling

Guess what? Right now I’m sleeping. That’s right. I wrote this article a few days ago and scheduled it to be published today. You can do the same. Here’s how:

1. Write an article

Write your blog post.

2. Choose a time to publish

See this on the top-right of your post:

Publish Panel

Publish Panel

Click on “Edit” next to “Publish immediately” and schedule the date and time you want your article published.

That’s it! Now your blog article will be posted and tweeted out (if you’re setup) at the date and time you’ve selected.

Why hasn’t Google indexed my site?

A website that ranks well in Google can generate tens of thousands of dollars every month, and be a valuable asset that a REALTOR® can sell to anyone. Here are the most common reasons why your website isn’t ranking:

1. Your Domain Name is Wrong

This is simple because there is only one right way to have a domain name: buy it and point it at your website. If you’re:

  • using domain masking, or
  • using domain re-writing, or
  • using a sub-domain

THEN YOUR WEBSITE WILL NEVER RANK. Sorry.

2. Your Website Sucks

Unlike domain names, there are many “right” ways of building websites that rank well in Google. Chances are that if:

  • you use WordPress, and
  • you have unique content, and
  • you have the right meta tags, and
  • you update your website frequently

then your website will probably rank sometime soon. Unfortunately, if:

  • you don’t use WordPress
  • you don’t have unique content
  • you haven’t updated it in the last month

then your website probably sucks and won’t ever rank.

3. You Have no Backlinks

Have you ever wondered how Google finds new websites? Here’s a link to their main patent that explains everything: Method for node ranking in a linked database.

The bottom line is that you need links from pages already ranking in Google’s index to your website before your website will rank itself.

How do I get backlinks?

Ask in our forum and I’ll tell you.

That’s it folks. I’ve seen and built several websites that rank well and generate lots of revenue within months. It’s not rocket science, but does require a little more than absolutely no effort.

3 Reasons Why Your Website is Obsolete

Your website probably hasn’t been updated in months, and your website company hasn’t offered anything new in years… face it – your website is obsolete. Here are the 3 top reasons why:

  1. It’s not on WordPress

    If you’re like 95% of REALTORS® then your website is built on outdated, proprietary technology that, though once fancy, is now soggy, bloated, and stagnant. Because it’s non-standard, it’s impossible to improve and will never be able to compete with the thousands of programmers who contribute to WordPress on a daily basis.

  2. It’ll Never be on WordPress

    A website that doesn’t start on WordPress will never be on wordpress. Why? Because software development to migrate platforms and customers is just too expensive. If it were possible, then it would’ve already been done.

  3. Your website company has too many bad customers

    Despite technical illiteracy being unacceptable in EVERY industry (INCLUDING REAL ESTATE!!), there are just too may REALTORS® out there who have no idea what they’re doing with technology. They choke the support lines of their website companies with questions like:

    How do I edit the content in my page?

    and

    What’s the difference between a domain name and my email address?

    Unfortunately this drains the resources of these companies and eventually paralyzes them. Forget innovation in an environment like that.

Our philosophy is to build a website platform that you can 100% customize and build your business around. We’ll take care of our specialty – IDX, listing integration, and hosting – and you can do the rest – hire the experts in SEO, design, etc.

Now Edit In-Page

Sick of not being able to see what your new blog post or page looks like while you’re typing it? So are we… That’s why we’ve added a feature for you to edit your website content in-page!

“What? AWESOME! How do I experience this magic?”

Well, it’s tragically simple: just log into your ClickSold account, navigate to the page you want to edit, and roll your mouse over the content you wish to change. You’ll see an “Edit” button pop up beside your content, just like in the image below:

The Small Edit Button is on the Left

Okay – that was pretty straightforward. Now you just need to click on the “Edit” button and, after a short loading time, your content will re-appear in an editable text area. Here’s what it’ll look like:

Now You're Editing!

When you’re finished editing, just click “Save” on the small editing panel. You’re done. Enjoy!
