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

A web site is a must have for all small businesses in today’s digital age but to stand out among the crowd you need to build credibility and use technology, like the internet was designed for. 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.

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. As stated previously, match the blog to your website and unique MobileURL for a unified brand feel. RealtyGo enables you to add your blog, twitter, facebook, corporate or professional website and much more, for one easy to use application and landing place for end users, needing more information about your real estate business and listings.

Monday Morning Mobile, Great Post from RIS Media / Now that you have got QR Codes down…

Now that you are familiar with QR Codes, lets get a little deeper and touch on things you may not have thought of…

Web to Mobile technology

Now that you’ve cracked the QR code and know that in order to have a successful QR code marketing strategy you need to have a mobile website strategy in place, what is it you should be looking for? There is a lot that goes into building a solid mobile website which will be the foundation for the QR codes or text codes which you decide to employ within your marketing. Here are the most important things to know about implementing a mobile website.

1. Phone recognition. It is important to understand that when building a website for the computer communication, developers focus primarily on three different browsers; Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Safari. However, there are over 6,000 different mobile devices with Web browsers and they all have different specifications. Your mobile website should be built using a platform that is able to recognize not only that the consumers are accessing your site are using the mobile channel, but what type of device they are using and exact specifications of that handheld and browser by doing a browser identification lookup. This allows different users with different PDA devices to have an experience that is unique to them and their particular device; a more elegant experience for an efficient and more user friendly experience.

2. Integration. Having a mobile website is not meant to be a standalone marketing initiative. Your mobile website can integrate with your traditional online website; using redirection code, identifying mobile users and immediately sending them to a mobile enabled version of your website. This allows you to continue to promote your existing website and brand. RealtyGo handles all of this simultaneously while providing you a simple user experience using icons and key words for easy navigation while promoting, editing and updating all your real estate listings and MobileURL’s.  In addition, your mobile website should easily integrate with all current mobile technologies you are employing such as text messages, QR Codes, GPS and Apps. Often, the best and most efficient way to ensure that this is accomplished is to use RealtyGo that provides a complete solution. Keep in mind that RealtyGo has also designed our application to benefit the end user, by offering things like our Auto Scheduler, enabling a potential buyer, new customer, or other business professional to auto schedule an appointment using technology and mobile, saving you time and money.

3. Ease of use. The reason that so many of us frequent sites like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.. , from our mobile devices is because it’s easy to use—they do a great job of formatting their sites for mobile tasking. However, we have all had the experience of doing a search, finding the right link and then not being able to get the information that we want because that website does not format for mobile and is more of a pain than its worth. As mobile users we are looking for a quick and efficient experience to get to the information that we want. Maybe our consumers want to see a particular property at 411 Mobile Blvd or properties in close proximity using GPS; either way it’s all about the experience they have finding that information. Your mobile application for Mobile real estate listings should cater to the mentality of the mobile consumer and offer the end user all forms of communication, leaving it up to them which channel they wish to use in order to proceed extracting  information they want and need to make an educated decision, which leads to the next step; contacting you!

Continued updating and usability.
