1. Your Profile

  • Fill out your profile to near 100% because it implies to potential clients that you are serious about your business
  • Use a real photo of yourself

2. Add your websites

  • Make sure to use keywords in the “Web site title”
  • If you have more than one website, add them all
  • Add links to your Twitter profile and Facebook Business Page

3. Add every Location in your coverage area

  • To access this: go to “Edit profile” then expand the “Personal information” tab then click the “Add another location” link for every city in your coverage area

4. Answer Questions on Trulia Voices

  • Answer at least 5 per week
  • Integrate social media: click the “Share” button to promote the question and your answer on any of the social media platforms (especially Twitter)
  • Integrate Facebook: after you’ve posted your answer, copy and paste the question + your answer to your Facebook business page

5. Setup Trulia Voices alerts

  • Setup notifications every time someone asks a question in your coverage area
  • Go to “Email preferences” within your profile
  • Set the email frequency to “As it happens”
  • Get more leads by being the first to answer

6. Start a Trulia blog

  • Post teaser content that redirects readers back to your website (i.e. generate traffic)
  • Don’t make this your primary blog – the blog on your website should be primary!
  • Posting once a month is sufficient
  • Click the “Post to Facebook” and “Post to Twitter” links to promote the blog posts there as well (the more your content is syndicated, the better)

7. Add Your Listings

  • Only if they don’t automatically syndicate to Trulia from your MLS or broker
