Don't take our word for it....listen to what other real estate professionals are saying on Facebook (www.facebook.com/imsdesignation) about the IMSD program.
IMSD was an excellent program. I already knew quite a bit from my 6 years on ActiveRain, but this pulled it all together into a comprehensive framework and filled in the missing pieces.
A large portion of my business for the last several years has came from my online presence and my blogging; but I've been guessing at how to do it. I'm absolutely loving the IMSD classes, as I finally feel that I have a consistent process and logic on how to do everything smarter and more efficiently. My favorite thing is that I can listen to the classes more than once; as every time I listen I come up more good ideas. I'm already seeing a difference in the leads coming into my web site.

Using what we have learned here at IMSD, we have been promoting our farm online. We gained a client last week from Google because he searched for a specialist in our farm neighborhood. Thanks for all the fantastic information- it's working!

I want to thank you again for this designation. I truly believe this is the way for my business to grow beyond my expectations.
The Crispin Team has seen dramatic lead generation from the techniques taught in IMSD. Page views were 5,000 per month now close to 50,000 per month. Leads were 60 per month now 250 per month. Leads have generated contacts which have generated closings and a great summer for the Crispin Team. We are NOT STOPPING here, as the goal is to double what we are doing now.
You have no idea what this course meant to me. I live in an area where it USED to be like shooting fish in a barrel, but when you are competing with at least 150 agents for a piece of the pie that dropped to 9 sales a month... well.... either you adapt or get out. Getting out is not an option. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. It is amazing when people you don't know change your life so drastically.

Last week was my second week posting ads to Craigslist. In the last 6 days I have received 13 new captured leads!! I now have made about 15 different ads with interchangeable graphics and contact info. I just rotate these in and out and they are working great. I am officially a convert and hope that no more agents in my area get wind of this information!
Since joining IMSD my monthly lead generation has gone from 20 per month to around 200 leads per month.
What this program has done is changed my mind set and the way I farm and interact with internet prospects. From the 10 days of pain to Internet marketing the way I do business has changed. Your program has increased my client base and sales . So my 63 year old brain says thank you for the rewire.
For a long time, I really discounted the value of social media. It was like an on again off again relationship simply because things just didn't click. I've gotten bits and pieces of information from ActiveRain and that served me well. But the puzzle was still not quite complete until I took the IMSD course. Because the subject matter was dedicated entirely to internet marketing, it was far more beneficial than having to piece the puzzle together by myself. Chad Hyams facilitated most of the IMSD courses which made it interesting and pleasureable (mostly because of his offbeat sense of humor).
I recently completed the IMSD program, and it is by far, the best! Not only is it helping my business through internet marketing, but the resources provided to me as a graduate are fabulous. Listing presentations that WORK, press release templates, a referral network of other Internet Marketing Specialists to learn from, additional webinars & programs to help me succeed and so much more! Thank You IMSD!

I was very impressed by the IMSD program and the practical, real-world content it delivers. It was very easy to quickly adapt what was offered in the course to create immediate positive value in my business.

After reading about one of my listings that I posted on my Facebook personal page, the ex-girlfriend of a friend of mine contacted me to help her and her new husband sell her existing home and buy a new home in the suburbs. I had not heard from or spoken to this woman since she and my friend parted ways. Her trust in my ability to help and her outspoken action on my FB page was an awesome gift to me. A reminder that my time spent socially interacting online with people encourages their belief in my real estate abilities and their trust in who I am as a person. She is now the official THIRD person I have done business with because of my presence and activity on my FB page in the last 6 months
Three months ago I got my real estate license in the state of Florida, and right away I joined Keller Williams of the Treasure Coast. My Team Leader showed me the way to IMSD. After joining, I started doing craigslist. The craigslist challenge and IMSD has sky rocketed my business from 50 people on my contact list to over 300. In just 3 months I went from not one person on my website to 300 daily. I am now showing other seasoned agents how to do craigslist effectively after only being in business 3 months. I am so thankful that Ben has shared his amazing techniques with us. IMSD has helped me bring my business from nothing to amazing. Thank you IMSD!!!!
I have added 157 new contacts in 60 days, have an accepted offer, working with four other people and the traffic to my website is up significantly.

I would just like to say THANK YOU guys for helping me to take my business to the next level. I am looking forward to keeping up with you in 2012.

That was some incredible learning... I thought I was a geek, but this showed I was but a very young geek that just got a much needed kick out of the nest!

I have gone from 25-35 leads per month to 70-80 leads per month using the 10 days of pain scripts and craigslist/backpage postings. I listed and sold a condo thru the internet and have signed on about 1/2 dozen buyers since joining IMSD!
Every real estate professional needs to take this course if they want to stay competitive in today's online real estate world. I cannot recommend it enough.
Starting the IMSD course was an eye opener. As one half of a real estate team I knew I needed to find out more about marketing real estate online, but I had no idea the IMSD course would be so valuable. Short online classes allowed me to go back and review a topic until I had mastered it. Step by step course material enabled me to implement what I learned easily and effectively. Within 3 weeks of beginning the course I made my first listing presentation utilizing the materials and knowledge I had mastered from the IMSD course - and I nailed it! Every real estate professional needs to take this course if they want to stay competitive in todays online real estate world. I cannot recommend it enough.
I closed a deal as a direct result of Facebook and 2 more deals from blogging where people discovered me on the web.

Twitter works IMSD: I was re-listening to the twitter IMSD class this morning. While I was listening I was searching twitter for Denver. I saw a post from a TV host looking for a home in Denver. I tweet replied to his tweet and posted a message to his facebook. He just replied back with his personal email and said to contact him. We are looking at homes tomorrow. Cash buyer.
Englewood , CO
I am still working on putting everything together with blogging, SEO, Social Media, paid ads, etc., but in the past week alone, I've got over 50 buyer leads from posting about 8 - 10 Craigslist ads per day. Right on!
Port Coquitlam, BC
I just finished the classes and homework. I feel like I was so far off the path. This information has without a doubt saved my new career from crashing. My first career was a NASCAR Championship winning Pit Crew Member. I have been to the top of the mountain and there is no view like it. After 30 years, I retired from auto racing and launched head first into my new career. Loaded with poor advice and bad information I was going nowhere fast and spending a fortune on things that don't work. This info is priceless and I thank you for sharing. IMSD is game changer.
China Grove , NC
I tweaked Ben's listing presentation and used it for the first time last week. The seller was interviewing a number of agents after me so I could not secure the listing that day. I received an email yesterday saying they really appreciated me coming out to their house and the great presentation! They will be listing a $275,000 home and ultimately buying a $500,000 home with me. Thank you!
St. Paul, MN
We went from not capping in 2010 to being the number one agents in our entire office. I can not tell you how grateful we are to be geeky.
Two new buyer internet lead appointments set today. Thanks Ben for the 10 Days of Pain.
It's been one year since I started my training with IMSD... in a year that most have struggled my business has doubled... that is a tangible result.
Southern Pines, NC
We received two leads last week that were routed to my website via a blog about a specific subdivision in our area. We have gotten one of those leads pre-qualified and have begun searching for homes. One pre-qualified buyer in a week from a blog??? I will take that 52 weeks out of the year! All I did was exactly what the IMSD program said to do.
In my opinion, Internet Marketing Strategies are more of a real estate "staple" than a luxury in our current market. IMSD gives newbies and novice in this area an opportunity to build their knowledge... and through implementation... build their business and increase their market share.
I have done Internet lead generation for 7 years and these courses are right on!!! Best I have seen.
Just attended the blogging webinar and I actually watched a blog post I wrote during the webinar rise from 10th to 1st place on google. That was pretty fun! I've never seen anything move so quickly.
I just completed my IMSD training, thank you! I am for sure going to continue taking the classes over and over and over again!
I got another buyer because of IMSD and she has been preapproved as of yesterday, we have had our consultation and are previewing homes this weekend! Yay! Thank you!
Using your strategies, I've got 600 buyer leads on average coming in every month. They're a combination of leads from phone calls, IVR calls, craigslist ads, SEO, blogging, direct emails, etc. The IMSD program works.
Thanks!! I am enjoying your education and already have increased our buyer leads exponentially!!!
St. Petersburg, FL
I have been blogging on Active Rain and have come up in the Google search engine! It really works! Thank you!
Finally....a worthwhile designation!! IM IN!
IMSD has helped me put what I have learned into action through the homework assignments required after each class. You immediately put the knowledge you acquire to work for you in your business!
Southern Pines, NC
I am really enjoying and getting a lot out of the IMSD program. I've actually taken quite a few Social Media and Internet Marketing courses, but this one is really pulling it all together and making me implement the ideas.
I didn't even text 2 years ago...now thanks to the help of IMSD I have started a google ad words campaign and am getting quality leads daily. Can't wait to finish the course and convert them to cash.
IMSD is the best real estate course and designation I have taken. It not only provides cutting edge Social Media tools and methods, but also shows you how to integrate them into your real estate business for maximum success.
There are so many things out there ... IMSD not only tells you what to...It's followed up with a how & why to.... and most importantly the DID YOU.
Mary Ann Wagner
The content of this designation is outstanding! I truly am learning a lot and do look forward to putting this all together. Thanks!
Having to create the content that is being taught gives you the experience to make sure you understand how to do it and provides immediate tangible feedback on the course initiatives. When you can see the ideas actually working in the real world it makes it much easier to understand.
YOU GUYS ROCK! My brain is overload, but I am so excited about all that I am learning and going to implement, now I need you to help me build my team to maximize momentum :-() Thanks guys!

This is really the best course I have taken in a long time, now in the process setting up the systems....very good! Thank you!!
San Francisco, CA
Just did a presentation with my new "Listing Presentation"! The seller was so wowed and impressed with the information. Thanks Ben!
Best IMSD class ever today....so much wonderful information. This is the kind of training we need to see and hear.
The insight I have gotten from IMSD has been profound. With technology always evolving I found it a full-time job, overwhelming and it was hard to keep focus. The IMSD assignments are brilliant to say the least as they directly correspond to what I need to do in our business AND how it can immediately impact my business!
I was blown away by how much practical work was involved, and the benefits that doing the assignments have brought to my business. Thank you guys for putting a comprehensive program together that is current and savvy.
