POPIA and Property Alerts/Newsletters

08 JUN 2021

POPIA states that from next month all direct marketing and related emails must be opt-in. 

To adhere to this we will by default, from next month, only send Property Alert and Newsletter emails to subscribers who have signed up via the front end of your website (website opted-in subscribers). Not to subscribers who have been added via your admin console or you have requested us to add for you.

You will be able to override this default and send to everyone by checking a box to say that you wish to email all your subscribers and have consent to do so.

You can now see how many of your subscribers are website opted-in vs not at the top of your admin console’s subscriber screen.

If you want to try to convert admin console added subscribers to opted-in subscribers, we can send them emails asking them to opt-in to carry on receiving Property Alerts and Newsletters. This will be done by sending 3 emails over the next 3 weeks. Be aware that the conversion could be low. There will be a R500 + VAT charge to set up and run this process. Please let us know if you would like us to do this for you.

We will update you on further POPIA compliance for your website in the next couple of days.

If you have any questions on this please contact us.

Feed your properties to Facebook

18 FEB 2021

Don’t forget you can feed your properties from your admin console to your Facebook Business Page. We have seen that this generates significant traffic to our client websites.

You can easily keep track of which properties have been fed to Facebook via your admin console, plus click through to view them there. Just like your feeds to the property portals. Plus a link to the property on Facebook will appear in your Owner Email.

Feeding sold properties to Facebook is the best way to show that you make sales.

Don’t forget to update previously fed ‘For Sale’ properties to ‘Sold’ when this happens. This is easily done through your admin console.

If you do not already have a Facebook Business Page, we strongly recommend that you either set up one yourself or get us to do it for you. WEB-BOX has a team of online marketing specialists, contact us to find out more.

COVID-19 link moved

11 FEB 2021

We have moved the Government Gazette mandated COVID-19 link from the top to the bottom of all our clients’ websites. It looks a lot better there, while remaining fully compliant with the regulations.

We hope you like the change.

Please stay safe. Stay healthy. Be patient and kind.
