CyberAgent & SAPTG News - Feb 2015

Dear Reader

As we enter the 3rd month of the year it is important to act, that is if you have not done so, to start working on those goals that you set at the beginning of the year.

The real estate agent; we’ve noticed that a transformation is occurring. This is mainly due to two things;

  • The right mind set, real estate agents are no longer in survival mode. Instead they are starting to move over to a well prepared fighting mode, tracking what they’ve been doing
  • Real estate agents are becoming more open towards technology. They are no longer afraid to use their computers, mobile phones and tablets

Why is it that the real estate agent is scared of social media? Estate agents are experts in marketing in an offline "person to person" environment, building that personal relationship with their clients. However, nothing stops them from taking their marketing online and engaging with potential buyers and sellers 24/7.

Travis Balinas, Product Marketing Manager at OutboundEngine is well known in the social media industry. This month we share a brilliant article and webinar link of his with our users; How to grow your social networks The secret of success for any real estate agent is that commission cheque at the end of the month. We urge our CyberAgent and SAPTG users not be left behind, apply and get social media to work for you!

Until next month!
The editor

Quotation of the month

All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.

Responsive Websites

CyberProp - Real Estate Responsive Website

With the shift to mobile; the number of devices, platforms and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive web design is key in a multi device world. Existing CyberAgent customers can now upgrade to fully responsive websites together with the new Facebook App.

By going responsive your website will work on all devices (smartphones, tablettes, laptops and desktops). You don't have to invest in "mobile application development", which can cost up to 5 times more or ask the site viewer to download/install an application before they can browse your website.
