Commonwealth Connection: Online Tools That Work For You

Given the volume of web tools and mobile apps on the market today for real estate agents, it’s not always easy to select the most useful applications. This blog entry shares some of the web and mobile tools that can make your work easier, so you can focus on selling.

File share smarts

The two most popular online file sharing systems are Dropbox and Google Drive. But which one is better? If you need to share files quickly with clients, Dropbox might be the right tool for you. That’s because Dropbox is designed for quick sharing and storage. With Dropbox’s encrypted protection feature, it’s easy to send a secure link to a client or prospective buyers so they can access anything they might need, immediately.

 

By comparison, Google Drive is ideal for collaborative projects because the system updates and tracks shared files in real time. If you and other agents need to work on the same document at the same time, Google Drive lets you do that no matter where you are.

Spam be gone!

What’s more annoying than hundreds of email subscriptions jamming up your inbox? There’s a tool that can help. Unroll.me sifts through subscriptions that are associated with your account and cancel the ones you don’t want instantly. Unroll.me works by compiling automatic email subscriptions and allowing you unsubscribe to unwanted updates with a single click.

One caveat: Unroll.me only works for emails hosted on Google, Yahoo! and Outlook.com (i.e., it is not compatible with Microsoft Exchange)

Vmail with ease

Many experts believe that Video Emails will revolutionize real estate listings because they allow for immediate sharing of virtual property tours. One platform that is making waves in the realty industry is Bomb-Bomb, a video app that allows you to create property tours at the palm of your hands.

 The app lets you drop and drag photos of your listing into a template and then create a video incorporating all of the images you have taken at the property. With open rates of 67%, this tool is useful for direct marketing to longstanding clients as well as potential customers.

Social visibility

Every wished that you could you create a digital video property tour and upload it immediately to your social marketing platforms, including Facebook and Twitter? Welcome to the future, courtesy of Tout.

Tout’s mobile publishing platform means you can post videos instantly to any digital platform, including websites, other mobile apps and social media. The app works on IOS and Android as well as desktop through a proprietary webcam publisher available at Tout.com.
