Never miss a client inquiry again - The RealBird Message Archive has an RSS feed now - Productivity update #3

By
Real Estate Services with RealBird Inc.

One of the issues we have been working on regarding RealBird's lead capturing functionality was making sure that prospective clients' inquiries actually reach you. Email inquiries and showing requests were sometimes lost in space. Either because of spam filter settings or simply because sometimes emails go unnoticed due to information overload.

In May, 2009 we introduced the Message Archive for RealBird members and started to store all of your prospects' and clients' inquires and even consumer-to-consumer forwards for the RealBird Listing Publisher and the RealBird Property Search services. However, that facility still required RealBird members to log in every now and then in order to see if there are new messages that need attention. While this feature was a big step, in practice, it was still not the perfect solution. One forgets to check the Message Archive or due to the log in requirements just delays it. And we all know that a week old lead is as almost as good as no lead at all.

We needed to do better than that. All the powerful features of RealBird is useless if the leads are missed or go cold for the reasons described above. With this new release, we believe we sold the problem. The RealBird Message Archive now has a handy RSS feed that you can subscribe to with your favorite feed reader. You can add it to your browser toolbar, to your iGoogle browser homepage, Google Reader and even access it from your mobile devices, you name it. Most phones - Blackberry, iPhone etc. - has some sort of RSS reader application so that you can be notified when a new inquiry is submitted through RealBird. There are even services that you can use to receive text messages when this RSS feed is updated.

You can get your own RSS feed in the RealBird Member area under the Message Archive section. See the screenshot below:

This was a great idea, now I don't have to login to see what's going on. I would hate to miss a prospect.

I LOVE all the new features on Realbird! My company has now given us a new website that allows us to post directly to Craigslist, but I just smile and know that I've been able to do that for YEARS with you guys! Realbird has kept me above the learning curve since I first started using it.

Now with the RSS feed for messages, I will never miss a message!

Thanks!

Corinne - Yes, all the bells and whistles of RealBird is useless unless we make sure that you actually receive the inquiries. The RSS feed should help greatly. Thanks

Dee - :) Thanks for the kind words and for being such a long time member.
