Internet Marketing Menu
by The Brian Worrell Team, REALTORS® specializing in League City, Clear Lake, and Friendswood
Internet Marketing is a very important part of our marketing plan. According to the National Association of Realtors® 2006 Profile of Home buyers and sellers, 80% of home buyers viewed the Internet as a very useful tool in their home search. It's not very surprising. But, having extensive coverage in a multitude of high traffic local and national web sites is one of the most important marketing strategies you can have. Below is our Internet Marketing Menu where your home would be featured if you selected us as your marketing partner:
