Respond Instantly to Leads with Text Alerts!

June 10 2014

Generating leads online has become an important source of real estate business – so are you doing everything you can to streamline the process and maximize your conversions? Think about how many emails you get in an average day – 50, 100, 200, even more? According to the Radicati Group’s Email Statistics Report 2013-2017, over 182 billion emails were sent and received each day in 2013. I bet it feels like you got half of those! This month’s “5 Minutes to Better Homes Connect Results” article is all about bypassing your flooded inbox and improving the conversion ratio of new leads.

Online leads are often ‘first come, first serve,’ so following up with new leads quickly is the key to higher conversion ratios. Don’t waste time sorting through that cluttered inbox to find the leads that came in hours or even days ago. Homes Connect will send you text alerts anytime a new lead shows up. The text alert comes complete with the lead’s name, phone number, email address, and what they requested on the contact form. This gives you everything you need to follow up with them right then, whether you are in the office or out in the field.
