Beware The “Silo Effect” When Planning Your Real Estate Website

by | Jan 26, 2009 | Search Engine Marketing SEO

Organic SEO ProcessIn large real estate firms or businesses with marketing departments, being aware of the “silo effect” can help improve your real estate web design. The silo effect is when departments focus only on their goals (the silo) and not how all departments’ goals interact for the overall benefit of the company’s sales and profitability. In web designs there are at least three areas that need to all be addressed: graphic design, web content and search engine optimization.

Webmasters generally track the search engine optimization, while marketing focuses on making sure the graphic design is attention arresting and the web content is persuasive enough to turn visitors into sales leads. The silo effect usually manifests as marketing favoring a fantastic Flash presentation that really keeps a visitors attention and delivers the marketing message. However, when Flash is not used in balance with web content that the search engines can index or with areas for basic search engine optimization, then the super attractive website languishes well off the top search engine ranking pages.

When all areas connected with a website work together to balance the overall marketing effect of the triple titans of web design (SEO, content and graphics), then marketing gets their sales leads, webmasters get more traffic to track and the company enjoys greater profits.
