Didn’t Download the Top 10 Apps of 2016? Maybe You Don’t Need to…

HDC didnt download top apps 2016

Here you are, stranded on a tropical island: just you, your phone, and dozens of people looking to you to sell them island homes. Despite getting drenched during your swim to shore, your phone is miraculously still working! Tragically, none of those amazing apps you downloaded survived. You're left with what is essentially the factory default model. Despite this, there are still a lot of ways you can use your phone to help you sell real estate to those stranded with you.

1. Communication

Another miracle! The island has a cell tower! You can't call for help, but you can call and text your island leads.

  • Contacts: When you add a contact to your smartphone, there are five or six fields to fill in with things like the person's name, email address, and phone number, but there is often an additional button you can select to add new fields. In here, you can add spaces for phonetic name, notes, relationships, events, etc. It won't send out automatic email messages for you, but it will help remind you of who all those names in your phone are.
  • Groups: This sub-category of contacts can be a life-saver. Put your first-time buyers in one group and empty-nest sellers in another so you can easily keep track of who's who.
  • Texts: Send your contacts a birthday or anniversary text to regain a top-of-mind presence and you may be able to get some referrals!
