Free Postlets Beta & Vflyer: Posting on craigslist

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Postlets Beta 

I just recently ran across this website postlets.  All you have to do is add photos, property info and features.  The Web based program automatically writes HTML code that you can cut and past in these free classified ad websites. 

backpage.com
 craigslist
 edgeio
 Google Base
 HotPads
 LiveDeal
 Oodle
 Propsmart
 Vast

Free Postlets

The best part about it its free, easy, and convenient.  You don't have to write 10 different classifieds, you only have to write one.  Check out the one I did for my sandy point home.  This took me five minutes to fill out, now I can copy the code that postlest made for me and submit to all the above sites. 

Postlets Will:

-
create and host a dedicated classified ad on postlets.com
-
automatically submit your listing to Oodle, Google Base, backpage.com, Propsmart, edgeio, Vast, HotPads and other classifieds search engines*
-
generate the HTML code that can be used to post your ad on classifieds sites such as craigslist and LiveDealas well as on your blog or email newsletters

Free Vflyer 

Another service that I ran across on the web is vflyer .  This does close to what postlets but, there is a couple more features that vflyer offers, postlets don't 

Vflyer offers

Ubiquitous Distribution
Marketplace Distribution:
distribute your ads on leading online marketplaces such as: Google Base, Oodle, Vast, Trulia Edgeio and more. You can also post eye-catching ads on sites like Craigslist, Backpage and eBay.
Email Distribution:
Distribute HTML or PDF versions of your flyers to prospective and existing customers via email. Import email addresses from popular email services and products from Yahoo, Gmail, MSN, Outlook and AOL. You can also choose to email links to your flyers or mobile flyers.
PDF and Print Output:
Generate print-quality PDF versions of your flyers that can easily be emailed or downloaded. You can also also print hard copies of your flyer that you can hand out to prospective customers or use at an open house.
Embeddable Web Widgets:
Embed your flyers on existing blogs, websites, and social networking sites. Simply generate and copy HTML code for your widgets and paste it on your blog or website. You can embed flyer or gallery widgets on most popular blogs and social networks such as Activerain, Blogger, MySpace, Typepad, or Wordpress.
SMS and Mobile Flyers:
Send mobile versions of your flyer via SMS. Access the mobile version of vFlyer remotely to view mobile flyers, view traffic activity, check your contact inbox, view account status or forward flyers via email or SMS.

These are great not only do you get a free listing tool for your sellers, but adding your link to your website when posting in free classifieds will actually drive traffic to your site.  When I post in craiglist I get about 50 unique visitors from craigslist that same day.  It is a good way to drive traffic to you site, these users are looking for real estate and are buyers.  Just think if you did pay per click for these 50 visitors you would spend around 250 dollars on pay per click, depending on how competive the term is,  just for these visits.

Good luck I hope you enjoy

I love postlets and have used it in the past.  It is a tool in my toolbox that gets used for my sellers.

Postlets are great for generating the .html for CL and BackPage and they also syndicate to other popular real estate websites. Everyone should use Postlets and CL - together they are a very powerful combination.

Hi everyone:

I have been using a great tool to automate my postings on Craigslit. All I have to do is create a dozen ads with several different headers and tell rainmaker how often I want those ads posted. It does the rest. Whether you are at your computer or not your ads get posted.

Here is a link:Rainmaker

PS: you can download a free trial!
