7 Web Design Tips For Real Estate Websites

7 Web Design Tips For Real Estate Websites | Social Media Marketing Apps, Tools, Tips, and Tricks | Scoop.it

So, what should every real estate website include?

 

Optimized for Photography

All real estate websites should be oriented around real estate photography. Make sure your site supports the use of high quality photos in slide shows and listings to allow for better property viewing.  Today’s buyers search properties extensively online before they pick up the phone to talk to a Realtor so help them out by giving them access to great pictures.

 

Visitor Registration

Once a client or prospect gets to your site you want to encourage them to come back to your website and use your site as their online real estate home base.  All real estate websites should offer the ability for clients or prospects to register for updates on certain properties or alerts for new listings in certain towns.

 

Facebook Tab Integration

Social media is proving to be a wonderful playground for Realtor engagement with prospective clients, clients, and partners.  Providing easy access to your listings via your Facebook real estate business page (yes, this is good to have too!) ensures that you are giving your clients easy access to good information.

 

Community Pages

Sites that provide quick searches for towns and communities make it easier for their visitors to find what they are looking for.  We encourage our Realtors to include community pages for every town in their area, which include all MLS listings and are numbered on a map and featured on the page.

 

Featured Listings Slideshow

This enables Realtors to highlight their own listings on their home page. Customizing a site to reflect your region and your listings will provide your clients with an easy view of what you have available and further markets your existing properties.

 

Search Engine Optimized

Many websites today come with the SEO framework enabled but not completed.  The challenge is that Realtors are busy focusing on their own listings and their own clients and they don’t have time to learn how to optimize a site for SEO.  Make sure that the website you implement is search engine optimized for your towns, your region, and your name.  SEO is one of the most important things that your website MUST have to be found online.

 

Integrated Blog Functionality

Writing a blog on your website is a fantastic way to increase your site’s Search Engine value and make sure your website comes up earlier in Google search results. Maybe you are not ready to commit to writing a blog, but if you’re getting a new website make sure you have a platform that supports blogging so that you have the option to blog in the future.

 

Having a visually pleasing website is one of the most important steps a Realtor can make for his or her business. The design process can be exciting as you define or refine your personal real estate brand and pick and choose the colors, images, and photography that reflect your style and what you believe will appeal to your clients.

 

A new website will help you tell your story and can help you attract new customers by being easy to use and visually appealing.  Your listings can be beautifully showcased and your communities can be well defined. All of this will help support you real estate business. As you enjoy the process, keep in mind the elements in this post so you can get the most out of your new site.

The First 7 Business Apps You Should Download For Your New iOS 7 iPhone

The First 7 Business Apps You Should Download For Your New iOS 7 iPhone | Social Media Marketing Apps, Tools, Tips, and Tricks | Scoop.it

Apple's new iOS 7 operating system is here and so are the new iPhones.

 

While some app developers have been dragging their feet to update iOS 7 for its new fonts and features, others were all over it. Here's a list of 7 business apps that have been updated and ready to go for iOS 7:

Mailbox: An email app that treats you inbox as a to-do list. Redesigned for iOS 7 (and only compatible now with iOS 7), it has been “flattened” and streamlined for the new interface.

Evernote: The popular note-taking app has been totally redesigned for iOS 7. New iOS 7 features include AirDrop note sharing, dynamic sections that sow up when you use them and vanish when you don't, improved image annotations and faster syncing.

Collaborate: A project manager app for work groups. Track tasks, set deadlines, share files via services like Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive. The iOS 7 version also let's you send private messages via AirDrop. 

Google Drive: Like previous versions, the iOS 7 app, lets you edit and share Google docs, spreadsheets, and presentations.

Skype: The popular video chat app is iOS 7-friendly. With the update, Skype lets you join group calls from your iPhone, plus improved video quality.

Fantastical: The is a fast and easy to use  calendar app that schedules meetings for you and takes dictations is just as easy to use on iOS 7. Note that the whole app hasn't been upgraded, yet, viewing and managing Facebook events still requires iOS 6.

Dropbox: The cloud storage app that will automatically backup your photos has been updated for iOS 7.  But do check with your IT folks before installing this for work. Dropbox is also the app most likely to be blocked by enterprises and iOS 7 has new features for IT pros to manage apps on iPhones used for work.

If IT says "no" to Dropbox, you might be better off waiting for the new Box Notes iOS 7 app from Box, which is currently in beta. It turns your Box account into an Evernote-like note taking app and lets you chat with the people you collaborate on documents.

CrimmCoSocial's insight:

Have you updated your iPhone yet. My wife Cara did as soon as it became available and raves about it. Me? I'm still holding on to the past.

Google plans to launch a dedicated Google Glass app store in 2014.
CrimmCoSocial's insight:

Google has confirmed for the first time that it will introduce an app store dedicated to Google Glass next year. The company relayed its plans to Marketing Land, after a New York Times editorial hinted at the prospect, although it did not say if the Glass app store will be part of the regular Google Play store, or something entirely separate. I think they will make it a stand alone store. What do you think?

Mobile computing and miniature sensors may change all that by putting high quality diagnostics in pockets for pennies.

 

Peek, a smartphone eye exam system, is a great example of the power of mobile medicine. Using a smartphone and an external clip-on device, Peek can perform simple vision tests, check for cataracts, and even scan the retina for disease.
