imFORZA initially distinguished itself within the real estate industry ( by providing exclusive Internet marketing services to The Design People Inc. clients and sister divisions such as Agent Image, which created websites for individual Realtors® and realty firms across the world.  Under the guidance of President Vinny La Barbera, the division grew from providing search engine marketing and search engine optimized (SEO) content to eventually more robust and integrated marketing strategies that not only increased website visits but also successfully converted visitors into real clients.
