Using SMS lead capture postcards for farming

Services for Real Estate Pros with RealBird Inc.

How many touch points does your farming action list include? Janie Coffey has a great webinar explaining that it can take up to a dozen touch points over a period of time, on average to convert a prospect.

Postcards are long been part of many agents' farming toolkit and with our new Homes By SMS service, you can now extend your efforts with powerful, text messaging based seller prospecting.

Homes By SMS comes with 50 free postcards that we receive upon signup. All you have to do is mail it to your farming's prospects, according to your action plan. If you like the response rate, which you'll have full insight into you'll be able to easily purchase more for a price as low as $0.28 per postcard.

For those of you who are not familiar with our new service, Homes By SMS, here is a quick recap: Homes By SMS is a text messaging marketing service that you can use for buyer prospecting, seller prospecting and listing marketing. Prospective clients can text any locations to your number, or text their addresses and zipcodes to see nearby homes or your MLS# to get instant information about your current property. In all cases, you receive their contact information at first interaction, including their name, phone number, email, address and more. Homes By SMS can be used with our RealBird IDX services (SF Bay Area) or your existing IDX website in most cases and 3rd party platforms like Just contact us and we'll explain the features available for you in more details.

We also provide you with a free sign rider and 50 free postcards and we now also fulfill orders of additional items for your convenience.

So why not add seller prospecting SMS postcards to your farming's action list?

These postcards are pretty: there are multiple design options with more on the way and it is a highly affordable way to reach prospective sellers with a unique call-for-action that focuses on their curiosity.

The example above uses our demo implementation, with the RealBird Property Search as the search engine behind it. Feel free to test it. In most cases, you will be able to use your own IDX website for the same functionality with Homes By SMS.

Should you have questions just post it as a comment or  contact us via this form. You can also email
