“The ZPro Academy has opened my eyes to the marketing opportunities the Internet can provide. The instruction has been amazing, thorough, thoughtful, and patient. Since I started the Z57 Academy, my business has skyrocketed. With the increased exposure of my website, along with my online postings, both strategies have netted me four sales in the last month,” said 500th graduate Lin Warren.
In response to the need for Realtors to be educated in how to capitalize on the power of the Internet to generate quality leads, Z57 recently established its Z57 Academy.
