You may have noticed that growing number of leading websites, blogs and news outlets now provide desktop push notification through browsers. Those little pop-ups that you can close, allow or block, and if allowed, will send you regular notifications on subject matters related to that site. 

 

Meet Subscribers, one of our new favorite services that we use to build lists for push notifications. In fact within 2 days of deploying it on realbird.com, we have now a list of 134 opt-ins, who we can easily push instant notifications via their web browser. We expect to have 1000s in our list in a few weeks, at this rate!

 

Use Subscribers to notify your prospective home buyers and sellers on new listings, new market reports and other real estate related content with instant browser notifications. This is a must have list building tool for real estate in our opinion, the have a free service level for up to 200 subscribers, so you can easily try it out. 

 

Steps are as follows:

  1. Sign up to Subscribers
  2. Add your domain name as a site to Subscribers You'll be able to add more sites later.
  3. On the next page, download the Wordpress plugin
  4. Upload, install and activate it on your self-hosted Wordpress site
  5. Switch back to Subscribers and click "verify..." on the same page to finalize installation 

 

That's it. Pretty simple setup.

 

Don't forget to test it: Visit the public facing home page of your Wordpress site with Chrome or Firefox and you should see the small pop-up asking for your permission to enable notifications by the site. Allow it. Then switch back to Subscribers, refresh your dashboard and you should see your subscriber count increased. You can then click "Create notification" from Subscribers

 

How do you like it? We love Subscribers and hope you'll find it beneficial too.

 

p.s. You can use Subscribers with non-Wordpress sites too, we'll write a tutorial about that too.

HI Barbara... I missed this announcement. I've been a Rainbird Real Pro user for a long time. I've read this and admit to being totally confused. Will need to go back and really study this.

So does this work with our ActiveRain blogs?  It looks like I need a technology adviser.
