Use your RealBird branded listing photos on Facebook

A great way to use your branded RealBird listing photos is to share them on Facebook at certain listing events, for example when the property is sold.

Below is a screenshot of long time RealBird member, Barbara Martino-Sliva's Facebook share about the sale of a beautiful property.

Notice the bottom left image partially showing the RealBird branded, primary listing photo.

As a reminder, you can get your own branded listing photos with a few clicks:

  • Sign in to RealBird.com
  • Go the "List of listings" page in the member area
  • Click the "Photo Branding Tool" link on the right side of a listing (or add a new property) and you can download the photo and share it on social media, in Craiglist post or blog articles.

Thanks Barbara for letting us share your example.

Create separate listing widgets for your rental and for-sale properties - the advanced method

Many of you are using RealBird for publishing both for-sale and rental properties and often times, the target audiences for the two types of listings are different. You can now create separate RealBird listing widgets for your rental and for-sale properties and embed them on separate pages on your website, or blog. You can also create distinct Facebook Page tabs for them.

We are still working on updating the member area so that you can easily select the desired property types for the widget on the user interface, but in the meantime, you can start using these targeted listing widgets from today. Just add the following to the end of your RealBird widget's link:

Add the following Url tag to the end of the link. It also works for the Board, Map and Gallery widgets.

&rb_type=

Values are dot separated and represent the numerical values of the RealBird featured listing types as follows:

1 - Single Family Residential

2 - Condominium

3 - Townhouse

4 - Multi Family

5 - Lots and Land

6 - Mobile Home

7 - Commercial

8 - Residential Rental

9 - Commercial Rental

10 - New Construction

100 - Other property type

So if you'd like to create a widget for Residential Rentals only, you would add &rb_type=8 to the end of any of your listing widgets. If you want to show Condos and Townhouses only excluding other property types, than you would add &rb_type=2.3 to the end of the link. Without this new parameter, the widgets will show all of your listings matching other criteria, just like before

This is an advanced method of using this new feature and may sound a bit overly complicated. We are going to release the updated code generator in the member area in the next few days, which will make generating these dedicated widgets as easy as clicking a few checkboxes.
