An interesting article from Inman the other day where the top 3 real estate portals are really dominating the search results. Zillow was at the top with 16.53 percent of real estate traffic. Then came Trulia with 8.66%. Rounding out the top 3 was Realtor.com (which used to be #1) with 7.26%. But what these numbers do not show is Zillow also powers several other websites, including Yahoo Homes, which is #4. So you have Zillow with over 64 million monthly visitors to their site and listings. Realtor.com does power MSN Real Estate, so together, they represent about 26 million monthly visits.
We recently launched intro and exit branding slides for the downloadable/YouTube video. We heard from some of you that you wanted this to be optional. We have listened, and you now have the ability to uncheck the box for the branding slides. If you do not want the branding, or if you want to first download the video file without the branding for use elsewhere…and then add the branding, just uncheck the box, save and we will regenerate the video you can download or that gets posted to YouTube. Each time you check or uncheck the box, we regenerate the video, so you do have some options to create multiple downloadable files.
We hope you enjoy this FREE enhancement!
We are pleased to announce the launch of agent branding on the YouTube videos. We have been providing automated YouTube video uploads for years now, but the video was an exact replica of the video on your tour. Now, we have added agent branding at the beginning and end of the video that includes info on the property as well as your contact info, logo and photo. We also add a banner that displays your contact info and some property info.
As always, you can select the free YouTube posting service to either the FloorPlanOnline YouTube Channel, or you can set to authenticate with your own google account/YouTube account. See the settings under Edit Profile, then Edit Tour Linking & Distribution. Select the box to upload videos to your YouTube channel, then authenticate by signing in with your gmail account credentials (it helps to have gmail or your YouTube channel open when you do this). Save at the bottom.
Then just make sure as you create a new tour, the box is checked to upload the video to YouTube.
That’s it! Again we create these videos for free…no upgrades, up charges or manual work needed!
NEW! Event-Based Lead Capture
Introducting our new, Event-based Lead Capture system for your tours. This Patent Pending Lead Capture system allows you to capture leads based on various visitor actions on the branded tour, such as after 4 camera icon clicks on the floor plan, or when someone tries to download the printable flyer. When combined with our Brandkeepr technology that automatically converts unbranded tours pulled from the MLS to the branded version, we can help you get more leads from sites like Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo, Realtor.com, and even your own company/personal website- basically get a lead on any website that allows agent branding! It even works with our embedded content widget for your WordPress website!
View our video or visit our feature page to read more about how you can get more leads with Brandkeepr + Lead Capture.
Best of all – It’s FREE. It is included as part of the standard tour price!
Set-up is Required.
This new system is live on all accounts, but it is not ON by default. If you would like to enable lead capture on your tours, just login to your account, go to Edit Profile and then click on Edit Leads Profile. Click the toggle switch to turn it on and save. Note: if someone uses the Contact from on the tour, you will still get a “lead” for those messages, even if you have Lead Capture OFF.
We are pleased to annouce the offical beta launch of Event-based Lead Capture!
With Lead Capture, your virtual tour and it’s content now can become a lead capture machine. Just turn on the feature in your profile and let the leads come!
