SEATTLE: Seattle-based startup Knovolo announces its Real Estate Text Link product for real estate agents and independent home sellers. This service combines text messaging with specialized Mobile Web content to provide a powerful new avenue to communicate with buyers.
Subscribers to the service receive a sign, to be affixed to the For Sale sign in front of property for sale, which reads
For more information:
text DEMO to 732589 (REALTY)
where “demo” is replaced by a unique keyword specific to that listing. Any potential buyer that follows these instructions will receive a text response in a matter of seconds with basic information about the listing, the seller’s phone number, and a Mobile Web link. The buyer can then click on the link to be taken to a Mobile Web page with several full-color photos, detailed specifications on the listing, and seller’s contact information.
The service is free to the potential buyer (aside from possible carrier text messaging fees). Knovolo charges the real estate agent a one-time fee, good for the life of the listing, which includes all the setup work (text message creation, keyword registration, Mobile Web design and publishing) and a sign rider to be displayed at the property.
This new marketing tool isn’t restricted just to the For Sale sign. The phrase “For more information, text DEMO to 732589” is also useful in mailings, newspaper ads, brochures, banners, on the radio, or on TV.
Try it yourself! Text DEMO to 732589 (REALTY).
