Still driving around town filling your flyer boxes? So were my brother and I up until a few months ago. Then we discovered real estate text marketing for our listings instead. The concept is simple: instead of a flyer box, you put out a sign rider that says “Text 123main to 25252“. When prospects text that number, they instantly get property info, including beds, baths, listing price, and a link to a mobile website with pictures and more info.
The best part? You’re instantly texted their contact info, so you can follow up and answer their questions while they’re still in front of the property. More than one agent I’ve spoken with has said this is the most useful service they have in their technology arsenal.
My brother and I are natural tinkerers, so we’ve spent the past several months researching the concept to see if we could build a better mousetrap. Our goal was to make a drop dead simple, easy to use, inexpensive service for busy agents, and today we think we’ve achieved that with our newest product: AGENT TEXT. In less than 5 minutes, you can stop printing flyers and have a fully functioning text marketing service to present to sellers at listing presentations and to generate more buyer prospects from your listings. Pricing is simple, both the code and sign rider are reusable for unlimited listings, and shipping is included:
- 1 Reusable code: $8/ month, $20 1 sign rider
- 3 Reusable codes: $24/ month, $40 for 3 sign riders
- 5 Reusable codes: $35/ month, $50 for 5 sign riders

In the interests of full disclosure, this is a project both my brother and I are working on. We think we offer the best combination of simplicity and low cost, but even if you don’t choose our project, I still strongly recommend you consider the switch from flyers to text messaging. There are many other great companies out there offering a similar service, and you’ll immediately start saving money on the cost of printing flyers, not to mention the time you save refilling flyer boxes. Add in the fact that it makes a great marketing tool in listing presentations, plus the potential for buyer leads, and it’s not hard to see how such a product could help your business.
