Question: How can I give more property information directly to potential buyers using my For Sale Signs?
Answer: Add website info on your For Sale Sign and a Re/Max Sign Rider with the listing’s assigned SMS code.
Mobile marketing is becoming a widely used marketing tool for reaching potential customers. Your For Sale sign can be used to promote mobile marketing of your listings.
Buyers with internet data plans on their mobile phones can check out websites for listing details and agents’ contact info. Having your website address on your For Sale sign is a great idea to capture potential buyers who want instant information and contact.
Every mobile phone on the market today is capable of SMS. SMS is the most widely used data application in the world, with 2.4 billion active users or over 70% of all mobile phone subscribers. Adding simple SMS code/messages on sign riders to For Sale signs allow real estate agents to provide simple instructions to potential homebuyers on how to obtain property information direct to their cell phones.
When a potential buyer sees a Re/Max Sign Rider, they will see a messaging saying “For INSTANT Price & Photos TEXT 10000 to (SMS Code)”. The potential buyer can send a SMS message using their mobile phone to obtain quick information on the property. In the process, agents can capture contact information of people who are likely prospects, who may also consider other homes in the area.
Assigning a SMS code to your listing and ordering your Re/Max Sign Rider is simple:
- Log on to www.bestagent.ca
- Click on LeadStreet Canada and then the SMS tab
- Activate SMS code for your listing by selecting one of the codes given in the drop-down menu
- Order your SMS Sign by completing a SMS Sign Order Form (Download under Promotion Assistant)
- Attach Sign Rider to your For Sale Sign
Re/Max offers this SMS code texting service for FREE (with the exception of the cost of the signs) whereas other companies may charge you each time you receive a SMS message.
Take advantage of your RE/MAX Tools and good luck with selling those listings.
