Learn More About The Best of Katy - "Our Revolution" in Local Real Estate Advertising

We are local company based in Katy, Texas, dedicated to helping other local businesses get more customers quickly, easily and cost effectively. We know you have a business to run, and you can't spare millions of dollars and loads of extra employees to manage your advertising and marketing efforts. We don't think you should have to. Instead, let us help you. We’re providing a special venue for local real estate professionals to join together and create a much bigger presence on the internet. There’s strength in numbers and working as a group is much more effective than everyone fighting for the same space.

The old saying, "Build it and they will come" no longer applies to the internet. They've already come and built literally billions of web pages. The problem is no longer getting people to use the internet, it's now getting found on the internet, the compeition is massive and in real estate that problem is compounded by the sheer number of agents competing to be found.
According to NAR statistics over 65% of all people who list their property with a real estate agent list with the first agent they talk to. That makes it extremely important to get and keep people's attention even before they need an agent. You want to be that first agent.
The vast majority of people selling or buying real estate now rely on the internet for most of their information. You need to rpovide them with a source for that information and a link to you with it. We can help you with that and make you visibleon a constant basis.
As the Internet has matured, more information is available locally, and consumers are searching for it. The Best of Katy has "revolutionized" the finding of all that local information. We've centralized Katy's local information into one interactive easy to use place. We need your help to make it even better. Let’s work together and make that information easy for them to find. Let's make it even easier for them to find you.

Technological advances have transformed sections of the World Wide Web from a huge impersonal galaxy into the Local Internet, a resource for information pertinent to your life and a vehicle for communicating and collaborating with your neighbors and friends.

This evolution of the web into the Local Internet makes it possible for you to target and advertise directly to potential local customers. The Best of Katy has been designed to help you tap into the power of the Local Internet like never before to reach these potential local customers, who are online right now, searching for deals, recommendations and information in your community.

The next step in local advertising is here, “Our Revolution” in local advertising has started. It’s time for you to Lead, Follow, or Get out of the Way.

We’re “revolutionizing” local advertising. We’ve created new tools to help you to promote your products and services, and designed our site to get your business listed higher in search engine results on engines such as Google, MSN and Yahoo.

Many local businesses have been stumped when deciding where and how to advertise, and end up sinking their budget into placing ads in the yellow pages or the local papers. We think the yellow pages are feeble relics of the rotary phone era, ineffective and unworthy of their outrageous prices and most people today do their research online. Join “Our Revolution” and get in step with the latest technologies in growing your business.

Consumers have already joined “Our Revolution”. Consumers in the information age are much more likely to search for you on the web, and want more information about your business than you can cram into one little static ad. We know you deserve better, so we’ve “revolutionized” the entire process. We’ve created a new package of tools to help you develop a dynamic business listing and raise your visibility in search results.

Join “Our Revolution”, you don’t have to go it alone. Get some help, join a group dedicated to making every business in Katy more visible. What’s good for you is good for the group, and certainly what’s good for the group is good for you and it’s free to join “Our Revolution”.

Moreover, we offer additional affordable service packages that leave phone book ads in the dust for a fraction of your budget. As consumers ourselves, we prefer supporting local businesses over the impersonal big box stores. We trust the pros behind our local businesses for their opinions and expertise.

Much like the idea behind the national hardware and pharmacy chains, we’ve provided a place where you’re business can remain independent and yet join advertising forces with all the other local businesses. With all the local businesses joined together in one spot they all get a lot more bang for the buck.

We're enabling local businesses to take some of this valuable customer interaction online, publishing advice through blogs and newsletters and creating a network by inviting and endorsing other businesses on The Best of Katy. Sharing advice and building a trusted network will bring you and your affiliates more customers through referrals.

We've focused on creating a robust yet easy-to-use suite of tools specific to your needs. We know that there are already many complex and expensive services available online to help local business owners master different aspects of marketing and advertising.

If you’re willing to spend thousands of hours and dollars on your own, you too can create an advertising network, but why would you want to invest all that energy and money into something we’ve already done for you. We've tested what works and incorporated the most effective tactics and strategies into a one-stop shop to help you harness the power of the Local Internet, delivering you more customers while saving you wasted effort and money.

The Best of Katy shares your vision for success and believes in the power of local businesses. The Best of Katy has partnered with Patriot Adverting locally to provide your business the perfect combination of local marketing and internet savvy in one place.
