Mobile Marketing for Agents

November 12 2009

xMedia Participation has announced the availability of RETextLeads, a mobile marketing and lead generation platform designed specifically for the real estate industry. With RETextLeads, REALTORS®, brokers, property managers, and landlords can facilitate fast, timely communication with potential buyers by making detailed information readily available to them via their cell phones or handheld devices, as they are passing by available properties.

“Many real estate agents spend countless hours and significant amounts of money placing classified ads, or printing and distributing flyers and brochures for the many properties they are selling,” said Chris Haller, Founder and Director at xMedia Participation. “This approach is not only time-consuming and expensive, it is quite limited in its effectiveness. Our goal is to empower real estate professionals with a faster, better, more affordable way to get the attention of potential buyers, so they can close more deals.”

RETextLeads allows potential buyers to retrieve in-depth information – such as square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, lot size, and price – as well as images, by simply sending a text message using a number displayed in front of the property. Agents are instantly notified, so they can follow up immediately and schedule a showing.

“RETextLeads empowers real estate professionals to improve the reach and cost-efficiency of their marketing efforts,” added Haller. “They can generate more highly qualified leads in a shorter period of time without the need for antiquated activities such as cold calling or direct mail that produce limited results. They can also close deals faster, and generate more commissions, by responding instantly to interested buyers, before they purchase or rent another property.”

Key RETextLead features include:

  • A simple text messaging environment that is familiar and easy to use for both agents and potential buyers.
  • Convenient anytime, anywhere access to property details via cell phones, PDAs, and other handheld devices.
  • Rapid, real-time property listing creation and updates.
  • Dynamic alerts that notify agents instantly when a prospect has expressed an interest in a specific property.
  • Lead segmentation and tracking that provides insight into the success of sales and marketing strategies.

“In addition to selling or renting more properties, REALTORS® can also use RETextLeads to gain a competitive edge,” concluded Haller. “By providing potential sellers with an innovative marketing tool that will generate more interest in their property and increase showings, they can win more listings.”

And best off all, real estate professionals can try RETextLeads at absolutely no risk or cost! Interested agents and brokers can experience this robust, yet economical solution by signing up for a free listing at
