May Newsletter - More Service and More Value to you

Over the last few months we have really worked had to pack as much value and marketing services into our system as possible. Here is a summary of the May 2008 Newsletter.

NEW: Craigslist Auto-Poster gets listings on craigslist in about 5 seconds. We have continued to develop our Craigslist posting system and this is now completely automated. Just type in the craigslist codeword and your listing is automatically posted to craigslist as an elegant SPS-style, website flyer.

NEW: Manage Photos more easily with our new MANAGE PHOTOS system. FAST-FOTO already makes uploading multiple large images a breeze. Our new Version 2.0 brings an improved way to do this with a single MANAGE PHOTOS page for uploading all images, a 'drag-and-drop' to re-sequence and also you can choose any image to be the home page photo. You will save hours compared to other systems!

NEW: PDF Print Flyers saves you time and money. Sites are now presented with a selection of auto-generated print-quality PDF flyers. We will be adding to this selection soon.

NEW: Listings sent to Zillow® for enhanced exposure. Checkout the 'Feeds and Promotion' services for your listings and you'll see Zillow is now included.

NEW: Support for VIDEO. We have made it easy to embed VIDEO in your listing site in a variety of ways. See the VIDEO link option in EDIT/PROMOTE for your listing.

NEW: More photos on Home Page for a more compelling presentation. You can now choose to display a row of thumbnail photos on your home page. This option is set in the new MANAGE PHOTOS page in the OPTIONS tab.

NEW: Support for REALPING.We have made it easy to engage with porspective clients with support for RealPing "Click to Call" Service in your listing site. Just provide your REALPING ID in your Profile (see Your Account/ Profile).

NEW: More Widgets for more automated marketing. We have added new 'single property' widgets to the widget page. Click on the WIDGET icon on the MANAGE SITES page to create any widgets. Widgets allow you automatically present your listing data (for sale, solds etc) to any other website in a specific way - for example, a scrolling list of your 'For Sales' etc.

NEW: 18 inch wide sign riders. We now supply sign riders in 24 and 18 inch wide - all in our high-quality, flexible plastic with a choice of colored lettering and holes pre-drilled (these are not coro-board!)

NEW: Enhanced Support and Control for Offices and Teams, or anyone with Lots of Listings. A new MANAGE SITES page makes it easy to manage hundreds of listings and multiple agents. New 'Search' and 'Filter' fields give you quick access to your listings.

NEW: New Pricing. The more you use our service, the lower the price. Subscription levels now extend to 200, or 300 or even 400 listings which pushes the price-per-listing to around $1 per listing per month. Our unlimited service is available for an office, for $400 per month.

NEW: Centralized Statistics. A new centralized Statistics page gives you all the intelligence you need for all your sites - all in one page. This is the new STATISTICS icon on the MANAGE SITES page.
