Content Migration? You Don't Have Time for That

Our line of work is always morphing and changing and while we don't do it all (and that's okay) we can do a lot of tasks... of which most agents just don't have time for. Whether it's building a website from scratch, writing custom, optimized content, social media management or link integration, just like you, we stay up on the newest trends and SEO tips. But what about basic content migration?


In case you don't know, content migration is exactly that, migrating content from one website (platform) to another. This is the tedious work that most agents and brokers just don't have time for. Technically we've done this for years but only until recently this hasn't been a huge need, but it also may be that people just don't know. I mean, what would you think if the people that followed you didn't even know you sold real estate? Well, that's exactly what I'm doing... telling what we do.


Tim and I have been in the marketing business since 1999 and started our own company in 2004. We have built thousands of websites and helped hundreds of agents, brokers and other types of businesses in their marketing efforts. 


Content migration is just one of those services. You've spent a lot of time developing your website and if you change your website platform you certainly don't want to lose it all. That's what content migration is. But it's much more than just copying and pasting text from one editor box to another. 


Content Migration:


  • Moving over custom content
  • Reorganizing the layout
  • Cleaning up and reissuing internal and external links (no broken links)
  • Resizing and uploading new and existing images
  • Revising or creating custom IDX searches if necessary
  • Creating CSS and/or code for the new platform
  • Creating redirect links to the new website


You can see it's much more than just copy and paste and most people just don't have time for that, especially during a busy season. 

Tim and I have always offered a tailored experience to our marketing strategy. Go with what works for you and we will help coach you through it or do it for you. Not every platform works for everyone, which is why there are countless real estate websites out there. But the last thing you need to focus on is the tedious coding issues and migration when you need to be selling homes.


We have migrated content to and from:

  • Cevado 
  • Real Geeks
  • Sierra
  • Real Estate Webmasters
  • Wix
  • Weebly
  • Wordpress
  • GoDaddy
  • Market Leader
  • iHomes
  • and others.


Feel free to contact us on a quote if you are moving your site from one place to another and just don't want to deal with the countless hours of content migration.

If Your Site Doesn't Have an SSL Cert. You're Behind
SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer). That's the httpS at the beginning of your website domain address. They've been around for a couple years now but they are getting more and more important and if you don't have one, you're already behind the… more
What to Use Instead of "Contact Me"
It's overplayed… and I'll admit I've used it about 8 zillion times but it doesn't have the same pop like it use to… Did it ever? I'm not sure. But I do know that we gloss over those words at the end of an article but man, when we need that "… more
Do You Want an SEO'd Site or a Pretty One?
Oh, the dilemma! As an SEO person (I hate using the word 'expert' or 'pro' because we are always learning and things are always changing), we constantly work on making sites load faster, appeal to Google and follow all the rules. But as a consumer,… more
