SEO and QR Codes go hand and hand forever!!

SEO is all about getting the right people to your content and converting them. If you’re doing SEO well – then, yes, you are driving the right traffic. But unless you are synergizing your SEO with your company’s other efforts – you’re not getting the full benefit. QR Codes enable yout to deliver end users to an immediate promotion in which they are already participating in by scanning your QR TAG. Once you have the users attention and have satisfied their initial inquiry, you can then upsell, cross sell or even delier them to similar content.

The new generation of smart phones and the 2D barcode – quick response code (QR code) technology is bridging the gap between offline and online marketing. QR codes have emerged as a hot topic in mobile marketing as more and more marketers begin to embrace them in offline marketing and advertising initiatives. Let’s examine some of the advantages of QR codes, look at some great examples of their use in traditional media, as well as how to use them in your business.

Advantage of QR Codes

There are numerous advantages of QR codes. They can drive website traffic from traditional media such as print and direct marketing efforts. For example, instead of using traditional URLs in offline marketing efforts such as magazine ads, which require your audience to manually type in their phone or computer, scanning a QR code will automatically allow a person to access content as if he had clicked on the link. Or perhaps, you are sending out direct mail pieces about specific products or offerings. Including the QR code on the mailer allows the person to quickly and easily access additional information about your product, potentially leading to an immediate conversion or sale. In addition to the convenience, QR code tracking is available through services such as Bit.ly; these services allow you to monitor usage and the success of your campaigns.

QR Code Usage in Marketing Campaigns

I see them all over the place now, as today’s biggest brands, from Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton to the National Football League, RealtyGo, SocialscanQRTAG, Ford Motor Co., and Best Buy embrace 2D barcodes in direct marketing print campaigns. These codes are being used in magazine ads, editorial articles, television commercials, billboards, posters, and many other places. For additional information on the types of data that can be stored within QR codes, Angie Shottmuller compiled a list of the “Top 14 Things Marketers Need to Know about QR Codes.”

Geico using QR Codes

Geico, in particular, does an outstanding job of integrating traditional offline marketing channels with online media. It has created direct mailers that incorporate QR codes on the front of envelopes. Additionally, there are clear instructions on what the code is, how the recipient should use it, and what they will gain in return for doing so.

Ralph Lauren is another company leveraging QR codes via magazine print ads. In one example, QR codes link over to its online shopping site, allowing people to move immediately from print ad to conversion funnel. (Image, left, courtesy of Campaign Planning.)

Using QR Codes in Your Business

These are only a few examples that you can apply to your business today to drive customer acquisitions, generate more leads and improve conversion rates. The possibilities of how you bridge the gap from offline marketing to online conversions are limited only by your creativity.

Imagine the ability to add an easy call-to-action with a QR code that takes advantage of YouTube. Once scanned, you are automatically taken to a one-minute welcome video that has an annotation in it to other videos that leads the person into the sales funnel on your website. Or perhaps you embed a link to a Google map so potential customers can locate your closest office or nearest store based on their location or are presented with a special offer they can use by presenting their phone when checking out.

In summary, QR codes are quickly being adopted and gaining in popularity by many major companies and industries as an effective method for immediately capturing conversions from offline initiatives. To promote direct mail and create awareness of the benefits of QR codes, the United States Postal Service is offering a special postage discount during the months of July and August 2011, according to a TheDirectMail.com news report.

Direct mail marketers and mail houses can save three percent on first-class and standard presort mail postage simply by including a QR code that must be easily visible on the outside of the mail piece. Interesting right?

The question now is how can you leverage QR codes while standing out from the crowd? How can you use SEO, MobileURL’s and its principals to drive the right traffic and get in front of the right people and convert them in multiple new ways? Or, if you are already using them, what tactics did you use and what were the results?

Manufacturers are starting to take notice and provide better packaging with less left over waste.

Remember unboxing your last big gadget purchase? How many unnecessary layers of plastic, paper and cardboard did you have to wade through before getting to the actual hardware?

More to the point: Would you rather have more efficient packaging, less trash and a healthier environment?

The origami-like swaddling of hardware could be a much greener undertaking, and the companies focusing on better packaging solutions say their efforts could be a big part of making the gadget industry more sustainable. Supply chain firm ModusLink is one such company, and it’s done a bit of research on how much CO2 its environmentally friendly packaging is saving the planet.

ModusLink SVP Lorcan Sheehan wrote on the company’s blog that its sustainable packaging changes have so far “eliminate[d] a combined 4,085 metric tons of GHG through package changes — the equivalent of 672 passenger vehicles not driven, 8,254 barrels of oil not used and 404,421 gallons of gasoline not used.”

He says the new packaging is not surprisingly also good for the company’s bottom line; ModusLink saved its customers $6.2 million annually.

Take a look at the infographic below. Do you think more companies should be focusing on streamlined, greener packaging?

Where do a majority of buyers and real estate leads come from? Online Search, Real Estate Agent, Real Estate yard signage,etc…

Where do a majority of Real Estate buyers and leads come from?

According to NAR – National Association of Realtors, in 2007 International home buying activity;  How are consumers accessing your real estate listings today. According to the chart and marketing online, the internet is the most widely used tool in accessing real estate listings today. RealtyGo includes all your listing in a well structured and organized manner, specifically categorized and properly tagged for indexing by major search engines such as google, yahoo, youtube and bing.

Though the internet is the most popular source today for real estate search, buyers also cited information from real-estate agents (85%), yard signs (62%), open houses (48%) and print or newspaper ads (47%). Fewer buyers relied on home books or magazines, home builders, television, billboards and relocation companies.

Yard sign statistics is what we are most interested in for the purpose of this article. Even though the internet is the most popular tool when starting your home search; what happens when you find that perfect home, your desired  area or even the most charming neighborhood with all the right amenities that makes you want to jump in the car and start your search right away.

Most buyers start exploring right away, they may not even have an agent. So what’s the chances that when buyers look in an unfamiliar neighborhood for a new home or real estate investment, they also want to know about other homes, listings, and professionals specializing in real estate in the area. We would say its a very good chance. The more information a buyer can get in a shorter amount of time, helps confirm their emotions and good emotions lead to buying. So be proactive and provide buyers what they need to feel satisfied in their real estate search.

Flyer box Mobile TAG Sticker.

To help buyers along you should add a Mobile TAG to your real estate listing(s), enabling buyers immediate listing information, including photos, video tour, pricing, details and other important information they may want in order to make a valid decision. Mobile TAG’s encourage buyer interaction, which increase lead generation and additional sales. The image above shows a mobile TAG on a flyer box. This is also a great way to cut back on excessive paper and ink waste, giving end users the option of getting all your real estate listing information through a digital channel, such as their Smartphone, iPad, Tablet or any other enabled PDA device.

The internet has changed every aspect of how consumers make decisions nowadays, and that includes how people acquire and/or put their properties up for sale. So how will you use technology to practice successful real estate marketing in 2011?

RealtyGo offers helpful tips / twitter 101, what are #Tags, RT, OH, HT, etc.. .

Twitter FAQ; RT, HT, OH, ETC…

Twitter RT means ReTweet

RT is an abbreviation for ReTweet, which is like Repeat. It’s like forwarding, but for Twitters instead of emails. If you see something really cool from one of the people you follow, you may want to ReTweet it so that the people following YOU (and not the original person) can see it.

“RT is slang, not a system function. Twitter doesn’t do anything special if you put in the RT.”

Why don’t people follow me back?

Just because you follow someone doesn’t mean they’ll turn around and follow you back. Some people are paranoid because they think you’re a twitter spammer, or maybe you don’t have your Twitter profile set up completely. Here’s a few pages where I explain why I follow people back – or don’t follow them back.

Top 10 Reasons I’m not following you on Twitter; by Brent Ozar @BrentO

Top 10 Reasons I *AM* Following You On Twitter; @BrentO

Adding more info to your twitter profile!

When someone views your Twitter page, they make a snap decision whether or not to follow you.  People want to know in a matter of seconds if you’ve got something interesting to say or valuable information they can use to make their own twit feed more interesting and relevant.

Unfortunately, sometimes your most recent Tweets have less relevant articles that may not be related to what you usually Tweet about.  Maybe you’ve been on vacation or selebrating a recent life changing event, or you’re talking about the plane crash on the Hudson.  People would have to scroll through a page or more of your history to figure out what you do and what you Tweet.

Our Twitter profiles don’t help much, either – they give us only a handful of characters to describe ourselves, and sometimes that’s not enough.

My Twitter Sidebar
The fix is to make your own Twitter background image that tells visitors more about who you are and what you do. Included a few lines about what you Tweet, easy ways to contact you and your QR Code.

You can choose whether or not to tile your picture, and what color your page background is. A QR Code is awesome, becuase it instantly makes your twitter background interactive with end users. Now people that want to know more about you can scan your QR Code and get relevant real estate information, your listings, contact info and social networking links, etc.. .

Before QR Codes A drawback to just having an image of your self or company logo is that it was just an image, not interactive(like a QR Code), so if people click on it or tried taking a picture of it nothing happens. Since Companies like RealtyGo, now you can have a fully interactive image that initiates a call to action from the viewer, giving them all the information they could possibly need to know to interact with you in the future. And remember your in control of the information behind the QR Code, you can Add, Edit, Update, Delete and promote new ideas and real estae listings all the time by simply editing your account within RealtyGo.

Twitter OH is an Abbreviation for OverHeard

If you hear something funny or insightful with your ears (as opposed to reading it on Twitter) and you want to repeat it, you can prefix it with OH. Generally, this is used anonymously, not for quoting people, so you tend to read things that might be personally embarrassing to whoever actually said it.

“This is slang, not a system function. Twitter doesn’t do anything special if you put in the OH.”

Using Twitter Through Your Company Firewall

If your company doesn’t allow access to Twitter through their web filtering systems, check out NutshellMail. It’s a free service that sends you a periodic “highlight reel” of your Twitter, Facebook or MySpace activity via an email. You can reply to the email and update your status or reply to tweets.

Even if your company DOES allow Twitter, it’s not a bad idea to try out NutshellMail just so when they run web reports it doesn’t look like you’ve been sitting around tweeting all day. Plus it helps you confine your Twitter use to short bursts, because you can pick exactly when you want the emails to come in. I get mine at noon (just before I break for lunch) and at 3:30pm, just after the busiest part of the day, on Twitter.

How to delete messages from Twitter

You can only delete your own tweets – things that you’ve posted, not things that someone else has posted. When you’re on Twitter.com, and you’re looking at one of your own tweets, you’ll see a trash can icon when you hover your mouse over the tweet, and/or select delete.

Twitter isn’t like email where you have to worry about cleaning out your in-box. The list of Tweets you get will always keep coming, and they’re always archived on your Twitter home page. It’s like trying to drink from a firehose: you have to stop trying to drink it all in, and stop trying to “keep up”. You won’t be able to do it.

Instead of deleting your old tweets or your read tweets, you’ll want to learn to use the tabs in Twitter’s web page, OR use a Twitter program that runs on your desktop to help you filter it all. If you’re using the web page Twitter.com to read your tweets, then check out the @Replies tab. That gives you a recap of anyone who’s started a tweet with your name, even if you’re not following them. Which reminds me….

How to Send a Message To Someone Who Isn’t Following You

Want to tell someone a secret, but they’re not following you? Well, uh, you can’t, because you can only direct message people if they’re following you.

Instead, send them a reply – this works even if they haven’t sent you anything first. Just start a message with @”their-name”, like @RealtyGo, and ask them to follow you so that you can send them a direct message.

Another method is to send them a reply and say, “Please direct message me your email address so I can send you something private.” Since you’re following THEM, they can direct message you with their email address without the entire internet seeing it.

Twitter Manners for Following and Followers

When someone follows you, you don’t have to follow them back. Don’t feel guilty. Take a look at their Twitter page, see if what they’re saying interests you and decide whether or not to follow them back. There’s no rules on Twitter, and don’t worry if someone gets offended because you don’t follow them back – they’re probably not the kind of friend you want anyway!

I like to think of it as newscasters: I watch the news on TV, so I’m kind of “following” the newscaster. However, the newscaster wouldn’t bother following me, because I’m not doing anything newsworthy. (At least, I hope I don’t end up on the news!) I’m not offended that the newscaster isn’t following me back, and you shouldn’t be offended if you follow someone who doesn’t turn around and follow you back. Spammers take advantage of guilty feelings.

Spammers On Twitter

Spammers will try to take advantage of you by following you, then hoping you follow them back. If you get a new follower, and their only tweet says something like “Get a Free Macbook Air!” or “Lose Weight Fast!” then they’re probably a spammer. They have automated systems that go out and follow thousands of people in the hope that a few will follow ‘em back just out of guilt. Don’t get suckered into it – all they’re trying to do is push advertising tweets into your Twitter stream.

Over time, Twitter has gotten better at trying to catch these types of spammers before they get too far. There’s a limit now that you can’t follow more than 2,000 people because the spammers were just trying to follow everybody, and taking the Twitter server down. Speaking of which…

What’s the Fail Whale?

Twit Whale, Twitter is overloaded,  RealtyGo_Trulia_blogWhen Twitter’s servers get overloaded, they show a cute picture of a bunch of birds trying to lift a whale out of the water. This is more load than the birds can handle, obviously, so they’re going to fail.

When you see the Fail Whale, it’s time to take a break from Twitter for an hour or two. Something big is happening, and Twitter’s going to take a little while to recover from the pressure. This seems to happen during major events like earthquakes or when Twitter gets mentioned on TV.

The Fail Whale was created by artist Yiying Lu.

Using Twitter to Update Facebook

If you use FaceBook, you can have Twitter automatically update your status on Facebook whenever you post a tweet. It’s free – just go to the Facebook Twitter application setup page, log in, and give it your Twitter information. Facebook will ask if you want to update your status automatically whenever you post a tweet, and you’re all set!

If you use more social networking services like Flickr, LinkedIn, MySpace, Friendster and so on, then consider using Ping.fm to update your status. When you post a message on Ping.fm, it automatically posts that message across all of your social networking sites.

Ping is only used for posting, not for reading, so it may not make sense at first. Here’s how I use it: when I sit down at my computer in the morning, I post a message on Ping.fm saying what I’m up to today. That way, the message goes across all my social networks. Then I go into Twitter, and I use Twitter as I normally would. When something really big happens, like if I get news that I want to share with everybody on all my networks, then I’ll go back into Ping.fm and post another message, but otherwise I only go there when I’ve got something important to say and need to spread it to all my social network links with ease.

How to Search Twitter

To search Twitter, go to http://search.twitter.com and type in what you’re looking for. It does more than just search, too: it stays on top of hot Twitter topics, things that a lot of people are mentioning.

Twitter Hash Tags (#)

Hash tags or pound signs (#) help to designate topics that people might search for – especially when they want to distinguish the word from a common phrase. In the example above, BrentO (me) tweeted about a conference in Seattle. The problem is that the name of the conference is PASS, which is a very common word. If people just searched for PASS, they’d get results about passing a test, passing a football, passing a policeman at high speed, yadda yadda yadda. That’s why we start certain terms with # tags.

Anytime someone uses the phrase #PASS in their tweet, it will be much easier to find in search.twitter.com than if you just searched for PASS, because the word PASS will bring back all types of match topics – like football passes or people saying they’ll take a pass, etc.. .

Advanced Tip: at search.twitter.com, you can set up an RSS feed for any given search phrase. This helps you stay on top of news when you’re interested in a specific topic. You can also find hot hash tag topics at Hashtags.org, or look up hash tag definitions at Tagref.

“This is slang, not a system function. Twitter doesn’t do anything special if you put in a # phrase.”

#FollowFriday – A Twitter Tradition

On Fridays, people post a tweet that includes a list of other people they think you should follow. If you like following one person, and if they list other people on #FollowFriday, then you might like following those people too. It’s like book recommendations from a friend. Here’s an example:

#TCOT – Top Conservatives On Twitter

Tweets that have #TCOT in them are politically conservative. The #TCOT Report is a web site styled to look like the conservative pundit Drudge Report site, but it’s driven by people who tweet with #TCOT.

Twitter HT means Heard Through

If you found out about something through a Twitter user, and you want to name ‘em by name, you Heard it Through them. This is different than RT, because it usually means you heard it in real life, not over Twitter.

How to Shorten Your Links for Twitter

Twitter posts can only be 140 characters long, and sometimes we want to post longer URLs or post URLs along with a long description. You can shorten long URLs with a service like TinyURL.com or Bit.ly. People aren’t trying to hide or obfuscate their links (usually, anyway) – they’re just trying to cram more info into 140 character “Tweet”

Marking a Tweet as a Favorite

When you hover your mouse over a tweet on Twitter.com, you’ll see a star icon. Click it, and the star will light up, indicating that this tweet is one of your favorites.

Dont let your Real Estate listings be as complicated as your Twitter activities! RealtyGo takes care of all the heavy lifting, by organizing, promoting, categorizing, and offering an easy to use system for the lister of real estate and the end user requesting real estate information and more!

If you have some interesting twitter trivia, please leave a post and share with the rest of the readers. Thank You

Smartphones to Overtake Feature Phones in U.S. by 2011 | Nielsen Wire | RealtyGo_blog

The iPhone, Blackberry, Droid and smartphones in general dominate the buzz in the mobile market, but only 21% of American wireless subscribers are using a smartphone as of the fourth quarter 2009 compared to 19% in Q3 2009 and 14% at the end of 2008. We are just at the beginning of a new wireless era where smartphones will become the standard device consumers will use to connect to  friends, the internet and the world at large. The share of smartphones as a proportion of overall device sales has increased to 29% for phone purchasers in the last six months and 45% of respondents to a Nielsen survey indicated that their next device will be a smartphone. If we combine these intentional data points with falling prices and increasing capabilities of these devices along with a explosion of applications for devices, we are seeing the beginning of a groundswell. This increase will be so rapid, that by the end of 2011, Nielsen expects more smartphones in the U.S. market than feature phones.

Smartphone early adopters, more men then women, percentage wise.

The Smartphone User

Slightly more males than females are getting smartphones (53% versus 47%) which is what we would expect for technical early adopter products. In terms of demographics, Hispanic Americans and Asians are slightly more likely to have a smartphone than what their share of population would indicate, which is a trend we see in the adoption of other mobile data services. While smartphones started out in the business segment, two-third of today’s buyers of smartphones are personal users.

Loyalty

In the last six months, roughly 77% of new smartphone buyers remained loyal to their wireless operator, while 18% switched to a new provider to get their new smartphone with the remaining percentage made up of first-time smartphone buyers. Interestingly enough, the percentage of people who switched carriers and got a new smartphone is not higher than that of the average wireless subscriber.

Smarphone adapters that stayed with current wireless carrier or switched to a new carrier for the phone options.

This indicates that the portfolio of the wireless carriers in general is robust enough to prevent any wide-spread smartphone flight from one carrier to the other, with very few exceptions. The added bonus for wireless carriers is that smartphone owners are significantly more satisfied (81%) with their device than feature phone owners (66%).

Features, features, features

Smartphones show higher application usage than feature phones even at the basic built-in application level. During Nielsen’s Mobile Insights survey we asked the respondents about features they’ve used in the last 30 days. The good news for the smartphone market is that people are actually taking advantage of the device capabilities.

The percentage of people who use their phone for only voice communications drops from 14% among new feature phone owners to 3% of smartphone owners. The use of the built-in camera and video capability jumps by almost 20% for both categories, due to the generally better quality and user friendliness of the features. Smartphones also often have a better speaker which translates into more frequent usage from about half of feature phone owners to about two-thirds of smartphone owners. Not surprisingly the use of Wi-Fi increases 10-fold from 5% for feature phone owners to 50% for smartphone users to satisfy the need for fast downloads.

RealtyGo supports both QR Code real estate information retrievel and SMS/MMS Text Messaging.

20 helpful tips your business can use to build web credibility using technology and mobile.

RealtyGo offers QR Codes, SMS/MMS TAG technology, delivering immediate information to prospective buyers, new customers and other real estate business professionals.  Here are 20 tips to help promote your online network, they have worked for our company and I believe will work for you as well:

1. Secure a Unique MobileURL

A “name”  is usually the first impression the customer gets of your business and most likely will use to tie that impression to your for future contact and lead generation. If you’re going to plaster it all over the internet, be sure the name is easy to remember, spell, and more importantly is relevant to the products or service you are selling. A well though out name above your QR Code will create a online resumer of sorts, linking all your listings, social network, websites and professional contact information in one easy to use Mobile friendly application. RealtyGo – Your Real Estate Listings Best Friend!

2. Have a professional looking website and a mobile friendly version.

Tasteful simplicity is usually the way to go. Something too flashy or sales-oriented will drive customers away while an attractive but straightforward layout will denote professionalism. Make sure end users can use their favorite hand held devices, like iPhones, Tablets, iPads, Smartphones, etc to get all your real estate information from advertisements ads, real estate signage, digital ads using your RealtyGo TAG. Also make sure you have your own domain name (www.yourcompanyname.com) and a blog that links from the site. Try Weebly or WordPress for easy, tasteful website building.

3. Showcase Press Coverage

Press coverage is a valuable badge of credibility. In the physical world we see restaurants displaying positive reviews on the door; why not do the same online? Even ask your customers and clients to visit your Mobile real estate application by forwarding them your site or sending an email with your QR Code, asking them to visit your listing and leave a review and/or helpful tips for others about their real estate experiences.

4. Blog

Keeping a well-maintained blog is simply the standard these days. It’s an opportunity for you to engage customers, as well as to demonstrate your vast knowledge of the industry.

You can even link out to Trulia, Craigslist or any other social networking sites that end users may find useful.

6. Find a logo

Similar to your name, a logo can define your business as professional and established. Try to come up with a clean, tasteful stylization of a common word or image relevant to your business. If you need some help, you can consult Logoworks and they will come up with one for you.

7. Video Content
