Feed All Your Properties to Gumtree for Free

28 MAY 2020

Good news! From the 1st of June web-box clients will be able to automatically feed all their listings to Gumtree for free. Before you could only feed 5 properties to Gumtree at no cost via your web-box website.

All new properties you now upload will be ticked by default to feed to Gumtree - you do not have to do anything. To also feed older properties, select and edit them in your admin console and tick the Gumtree feed box.

Feed your older properties by ticking their Gumtree feed box.

We are sure that in these stressful times that getting all your properties onto Gumtree, with their 1 million a month visitors, without incurring any additional cost will be a great help to you. 

If you want to maximise the exposure your listings get on Gumtree you can buy an optional package from them that automatically bumps up your properties so they will appear at the top of the default search results. This costs R1999 + VAT per month per branch (a 33% discount on the current rate). This significantly increases your exposure. You can email Gumtree at property@protool-support.com for more information.

If you already have a Gumtree subscription in place, you can benefit even more - contact your Gumtree account manager for these details.

If you do not want your properties to automatically feed to Gumtree, please contact us and we will disable this for you.

You can choose which suburbs are available to filter by from the new Property Locations screen.

Property Alerts Not Just For New Properties

20 APR 2020

With the Covid-19 lockdown in full effect, the chances are you have not been able to get new stock. However, nothing is stopping you from sending out property alerts for your current properties to your subscribers. The only way you can reach potential buyers right now is online, and email is the best way to reach as many people as possible.

Here are instructions on how to send out an alert immediately on an older property.

Get your current properties out to all your subscribers.

Now is the perfect time to make sure you have added all your contacts to your subscriber list. If you have a big list, please send it to us to do a bulk upload for you.

Just a reminder not to re-send older properties too often as it might result in some people unsubscribing.

If you need help with any of this, please contact us - we are here to help.
