When Realbird Has a New Offering, You Should Read and Consider It....

I love Realbird... and I Feature Every Listing There....

For a home sellers (and for a potential buyers), seeing an empty flyer box in front of the house can be very frustrating. For real estate agents, it's an ongoing problem as you won't know that the flyers are out unless you drive by or your seller complains, which is already too late.

But there is a really easy solution that will make your seller happy and help you with capturing more leads for yourself in the process. And whatever makes your seller happy, will in turn help you with winning more listings, without a doubt. Make sure to tell new sellers that your flyer box is different than your competitors'. 


Add a SMS text-code call-for-action sticker to your flyer box

Here are the steps to achieve this using RealBird:

  • Get a RealBird PRO account (only $15 per month for unlimited listings). Or log in here, if you are already a member
  • We'll set up SMS text code marketing for you. It is now a free add-on to RealBird PRO, included with your service at no extra cost
  • Get the "SMS call-for-action sticker" for your flyer boxes ($6.30 for a sheet of four stickers, it's practically free)


Don't forget to replace the first line on the sticker with your actual code and phone number provided by RealBird. The size of this sticker is 4.5 x 2.7 inch, which is suitable for flyer boxes and best if aligned to the bottom of the box. You can even change the sticker’s shape to a heart on the configuration page


So what do you think? Will you be using something like this? You can of course use these stickers with your existing SMS text code marketing service too, but since it's now included for free with RealBird PRO, for us, this seems like a no-brainer, but very powerful marketing addition to your toolkit.


Let us know your opinion.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR I was introduced to RealBird through Katerina Gasset and that was 10 years ago.... I have never stopped using it.... all of my listing marketing begins with RealBird....sellers love it.... I also feature every listing on RealBird.... they blast it every where ....the more eyes the better....and it's pennies to use the PRO version....that's the only one to use.

HI Barbara Todaro

It has been quite a while since I used flyer boxes. We use an SMS code that takes the buyer to the listing. It is a great service for a potential buyer and a great perk for a seller.

Morning Barbara.

I occasionally see one of those from time to time.  They are hardly used anymore in my area.

Flyer boxes aren't common in our part of NJ, although I've seen them in front of homes closer to the Jersey shore.

Barbara, I have not put flyers outside for at least a year or two.  With smartphones, it is really easy with our phones.  I did see Realbird had this new option.
