WhatsApp Agents From Your Website

15 JAN 2020


Don’t you find it much easier to WhatsApp someone instead of calling or emailing? With 300 million users worldwide, WhatsApp is the most ubiquitous messaging service around. Since we want to make it as easy as possible for buyers to contact you, they can now WhatsApp your agents directly from the property page of your website.

This is now enabled for all our websites. As these messages can’t be logged in your admin consoles monitoring tab (as the texting happens in WhatsApp), we understand if you would like us to disable this for you - just let us know.

We hope this works for you, and you get lots of WhatsApp leads from your website.

Please contact us if you have any feedback or questions.

Group Your Subscribers

24 OCT 2019

You can now group your subscribers and send a different newsletter to each group. Some people want to receive your newsletter, but not property alerts (or vice versa) or you might have an investor newsletter and a homeowner newsletter which you would want to send to different people.


Subscriber Groups feature in your admin console.

You can add or remove subscribers from any group.

Add or remove subscribers from a Subscriber Group.

Your subscribers are also able to subscribe or unsubscribe from any group themselves by clicking the link in the property alerts or newsletter email which takes them to the screen below.

Subscribers can add and remove themselves from groups.

We are sure you will love this new feature - please give it a try and let us know what you think.

Please note that newsletters are only available on standard and premium responsive sites.

Bulk Upload of Email Addresses

05 SEP 2019

Did you know you can send us a list of subscriber email addresses to do a bulk import into your admin console for you? How easy is that!

We do this because we want to help you get your property alerts to as many people as possible. 

The property alerts are an incredibly powerful tool for a number of reasons:

  • Enables buyers to be immediately notified whenever you have new properties for sale.
  • Enables you to present properties to hundreds or thousands of interested buyers. 
  • They happen automatically - no extra work (phone calls or emails) or costs (phone calls) are required to get your new properties in front of all of your interested buyers. 
  • They happen fast - go out automatically at 7am the day after the property is uploaded or you can send them immediately (see how here). Sending them out immediately is especially important if its an open mandate as it could mean you are presenting it to the buyer before another agent … and therefore making the sale! 
  • They ensure that all of your interested buyers are notified - there is no human error where you or one of your agents could forget to present the property to a buyer. 
  • Builds brand recognition - people know you are professional and active.

A property alerts email.

We have noticed that agencies that have great success with their website are often the agencies with a lot of subscribers. These agencies continuously add email addresses to their website subscriber lists.

By using the following 3 simple sources for subscriber/buyer emails you will be surprised at how quickly you can build up your subscriber list and increase your sales. 
  • showhouses
  • when talking to potential buyers over the phone 
  • from your incoming emails
And don’t forget you should be uploading all your properties to your website as soon as you get them - so that they can automatically be emailed to your subscribers.

Please let us know if you have lists to import by contacting us. We love hearing from you so if you have any questions please let us know.
