Transcripts from interview:

Celeste
Q:  Tell us about your experience with RPS thus far, Holleay.  What was the initial selling feature of our RPS system for you, and how long have you been a client?

Holleay
A:  I’ve had a few websites during my 14 year career selling Outer Banks real estate.  Some sites were more successful than others, but none of them gave me the flexibility I have with my RPS site. What initially drew me to RPS were the beautiful, clean designs.  What made me become a client were the in-depth statistical reports and the ability to easily create new content pages – both idx search pages as well as information pages.  I’ve been an RPS client since October of 2014, and I can say that OuterBanksRealEstateMLS.com   is head and shoulders above any other site I’ve ever owned, particularly now that I’ve upgraded to the new responsive design.

Celeste
Q: Why did you choose to upgrade to a responsive website?

Holleay
A:  In the past year or so, I’ve become interested in SEO, and I’ve set about learning how to optimize my site so that it ranks high organically in Google’s search results.   I recently became aware that Google was going to implement a new algorithm on April 21 of this year that would adversely affect my rankings if my site wasn’t mobile-friendly.  I chose to upgrade to a responsive design because I didn’t want to be left behind in the organic rankings on the mobile platform, since nearly 50% of my traffic comes from people searching on their mobile devices.

Celeste
Q:  How was that upgrade process for you, and are you satisfied with your new mobile-friendly/responsive site?  What changes have you noticed since your new site launched?

Holleay
A:  The upgrade process was seamless. In a short period of time, I had a site that was fully responsive, and one that was cleaner, sleeker, and frankly, more beautiful than my original site. But it’s not just good-looking! This responsive design has increased the ‘stickiness’ of my site with mobile users, substantially increasing the amount of time that they stay on the site and search for Outer Banks real estate.

Celeste
Here’s a case in point: just yesterday, someone from Fairview, New York visited my site using their iphone.  They used Safari 8.0 as their browser, and they searched for soundfront homes for sale in Hatteras. They stayed on my site for 7 minutes and 34 seconds.  Prior to the new responsive design, most of the mobile users jumped off after 30 seconds or less.  Also, I’ve been tracking my keyword rankings, and I’ve already seen several keyword phrases ranking higher on mobile.

Celeste
Q:  Is there anything else you would like to share that you feel agents listening to this interview would like to know?

Holleay
A:  Well, I’d just say that I know how difficult it is for busy agents to contemplate making a change, particularly since you don’t know if the support team behind the new product is going to actually ‘be there’ for you during the transition.  Having experienced the RPS support team now from two vantage points – both my original site design and the new responsive one, I can say that the biggest asset RPS has is its people on the front lines, the folks in support who answer the phones and make things happen.  They have a great group of people who work hard to make your site successful.

If you’ve been thinking about making a change, there’s no time like the present.  And if you don’t currently have a mobile-friendly site, you’d better make the change TODAY, because this new algorithm is already negatively affecting your rankings.  You simply cannot afford to be left behind.
