What is a widget?
Well simply put it is a tool that should be easily accessible. Ideally, for Realtors it will be something that promotes their own business whether it be a listing, their blog, a profile, social networking sites etc.
How do I get one?
Well Sprout makes it easy for those wishing to promote themselves. As posted by Joel Burslem of The Future Of Real Estate Marketing read on.
“Sprout is just one of those places.
Sprout is a web-based Flash editor built in Flash that lets you build your own Flash files (how Meta is that?).
Basically, it’s a very simple way to build out your own Flash-based widgets. It’s just dragging and dropping active elements, linking in actions and then publishing it all in a package to the web. Pretty easy really.
Here’s a couple widgets I built last night. It took me roughly a couple of hours or so to make them - including the time it took to figure out how to use the web site, so not a huge investment.”
