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.

Change To Facebook Sharing in Admin Console

Facebook recently changed their security settings so you will no longer be able to share properties to your personal Facebook page from the admin console. However, you can still share them from the property page on the front end of your website:

Click Facebook button to share the property to your personal Facebook page.

Sharing to your business Facebook page from the admin console is not affected by the new settings.

Don’t forget, we can help you set up your Facebook business page for R1670 + VAT (once-off cost ), or if you already have an existing page we can ensure it is optimally set-up for R940 + VAT (once-off cost)

Estate agents, your clients are on Facebook. You should be too.

29 MAY 2017

For almost fifteen  years, web-box has been a market leader in providing websites to estate agents, exclusively. Over this time, we have gained a lot of experience about the most effective ways of marketing your business and, in particular, how to attract sellers and buyers online.

As you know, in the estate agent industry, having a strong online presence is absolutely critical. Most sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants use the internet as their first port of call - and while having your own website is an essential starting point, social media is a powerful and cost-effective way of getting your business and your well-maintained website in front of the right people.

Facebook, in particular, is the social media network of choice for estate agents – and with internet users spending more time on Facebook than any other site, it has gone from a ‘nice to have’ to an essential part of marketing your properties.

Facebook gives you an opportunity to build your credibility and create brand awareness by providing your followers with interesting and relevant information about your industry, business and local area. It ensures that you are ‘top of mind’ for both sellers (which will increase your mandates) and buyers (which will increase your sales), as well as for landlords and tenants. 

As with our websites, our exclusive focus on estate agencies means we are able to deliver exceptional value, at the lowest possible prices. Our dedicated social media team’s in-depth understanding of the industry allows them to produce the best possible content to generate client interest and engagement.

We are very excited to show you our social media offering and think that you will love the added attention it can bring to your business.The same rules that apply to building a real-life relationship apply to Facebook. The more good interactions you have with your Facebook followers, the stronger that relationship becomes. That said, we know that you, our clients, have a range of budgets, social media skills and marketing needs, so we have developed 3 options to accommodate this, all offering unbeatable value.
