The Real Estate Business has been successful so far with advertising using traditional methods like printing flyers, renting space in the newspapers and billboards but these methods are costly. What if you can incorporate text and voice messaging and cut those costs while generating more leads? Here’s how Main Street Contact can help grow your business using a system that is a preferred method of communication:
Text and voice messaging has a feature that supports keywords and short codes, use these on FOR SALE signs or MLS listings to generate leads. For example, text “HOUSE” to “45673” for more information on this property. Once the lead responds, the auto-responder will return a text requesting further information like, Name, Address, Phone Number, type of property they may be interested in and so on.
Simplify the viewing process by quickly texting both parties the date and time arrangements. Reduce phone tag with trying to set firm arrangements. Responses can be immediate, any changes can be communicated immediately.
