Three Things I Wish My Website Would Do


Thank you Websitebox for this contest. The top three things I wish my website would do:


  1. Have a live Twitter feed that continually updates. I would like the ability to access my Twitter account from the website; posting updates, re-tweets, etc.

  2. A “Hot Sheet” feature that continually updates, like the MLS system offers. I could select the criteria for the updates and it would happen automatically and at least update every 15 minutes with a date and timestamp. Customers and clients can check in to automatically see what’s new.

  3. This may be surprising but I would like the visitors to my website to be able to access HotPads.com; Trulia.com and Zillow.com from my site and be able to stay on my site, sending me information about properties they are interested in.


And I have to add these two “wishes”:


  1. I would like built in e-mail with the ability to reply and save to folders from my website.

  2. When creating a “mobile” site, please retain the ability to pinch/zoom.

Interesting list.  I do not use Twitter that well and do not see the advantage, but that is probably me.  I can get these updates with my IDX Diverse Solutions.  I spend a good portion of my day explaining why the homes my clients see on national sites are not really available.

These are great wishes and well written, when is this contest over or is it too late to get in it?

Gene - Twitter takes a little time to get use to. Once you do, it offers the opportunity to engage with others, get your message out and find interesting topics. Work with it a bit. Later on, you can write "Tweets" in advance and schedule them for a later time. I don't recommend doing that until you become comfortable with the site. I don't use the feature often but it has it's place. 

Rosemary - the contest runs until 11:59 PST today. You have time to get in on it. Here's a link to the post and the details to enter:

You've got a lot of great ideas!  It'll be interesting to see if the folks running the contest pass these along to someone building sites for actual implementation.
