Open House Registration Form Reimagined with QR and SMS Text Code

  RealBird Open House Sign-In Form 800
A new sign-in form page is now automatically created for all of your listings on RealBird. You can use it at for-sale residential, rental and even at commercial open houses as a registration form for visitors. You'll get the benefit of capturing visitor information for your follow up marketing, while visitors can use their smartphones and receive instant details of the open house by bookmarking your RealBirde-flyer.

You can load this new open house sign-in form on your laptop or tablet as an alternative or side-by-side to paper sign-in forms or you can print and show the QR code that we provide as well, so that visitors can load the sign-in form easily and automatically on their own smartphone. Now that both Android and IPhone devices support QR codes natively with their built-in camera app, this is an easy and effective way to capture the visitor's contact information for follow ups.

Just login to RealBird, publish your listing and your new open house sign-in form is automatically created for you right away.

We hope you like this new marketing tool. Your sellers or landlords sure will :)

You can now simply add a simple RealBird shortcode to your WP posts and pages and your listing will be automatically pulled from your RealBird account and synced to your Wordpress site. Set it up once and continue to manage your listings on RealBird.

  2. Add your listing or click-through from the list of listings page to an existing one
  3. On the listing's admin page, click on the "» Wordpress Featured Listing Plugin (native, SEO)" link that will open a popup with instructions
  4. A unique shortcode is provided for each of your RealBird listings. The popup alsop shows the one-time, Wordpress plugin installation steps in case it is the first time using this new feature.

Please note that this is a beta version, but fully functional and tested with self-hosted Wordpress sites up to version 4.9.5 (latest at the time of writing this post). While we can't support your 3rd party Wordpress installation tasks, we are happy to send you tips on how to best utilize this new RealBird feature. Just ask us :)

New virtual tours and a must have seller emailing tool. RealBird updates.

We launched a few new features last week and those are generally available now for all RealBird members:

Seller Emailing Tool: A must have for listing marketing

From the member area, you can now easily forward your listing websites and virtual tour to you sellers, asking them to forward the email to their friends, family and colleagues. You are not only demonstrating your marketing efforts to your sellers - which in itself is very important - but you may also utilize their network for listing marketing. And because all these RealBird email templates are private labeled with your photo and contact information, you will also reach larger audience with your brand and hence generating more referral business.

There are preset templates that you can customize for Just Listed, For Sale, For Rent, Coming Soon, Open House, Just Sold etc. so it truly takes only seconds to forward your listing to your seller. Links in these email templates are also tagged with Google Analytics campaign parameters automatically, so you can track the effectiveness of these emails.

New, branded virtual tours

The new, branded virtual tours build on the popular unbranded version. They are automatically created for your listings on RealBird for your for-sale, for-rent, pending and also for sold properties.

RealBird Virtual Tour

Check them out. View them for your existing listings on RealBird or publish new listings today.

Updated listing forwarding tool on the single property websites

Listing forwarding by consumers from your RealBird property websites and virtual tours are now also branded with your photo and contact information, just like with the seller emailing member tool. This is an update of the existing forwarding tool on the property websites and virtual tours, but with the modern, pretty HTML templates including your information, it is a much better utility now helping you create referral business while marketing a current property.

Let us know what you think of these new features. We always appreciate your feedback.
