Real Estate Agent Apps That Boost Marketing Efficiency
Many real estate agents know that it’s crucial to business to be able to work on multiple tasks at once, and often times even be in more than one place at the same time. Thanks to the newest apps for tablets and smart phones, at least part of that is possible.
Real Estate agents are accustomed to doing business on the go, which makes smartphones and tablets an essential part of the job. But that also means there is a reliance on technology to help make life easier. So when it comes to your marketing efforts – from lead generation to marketing campaigns, social and digital media execution or client retention plans – efficiency is critical given agents work remotely and time is always of the essence.
So what apps can boost your marketing, while also making you more efficient? Here’s a look at six killer apps for real estate agents:
