New Enhancements to WoodsBros.com May 2nd, 2012
Early this morning we rolled out a new build of our website that adds some really cool new features to keep us at the leading edge with our online presence. Here’s what’s new!
Facebook, Twitter, and Google + sharing on the mobile site
Our mobile traffic, and mobile traffic across the industry continues to grow exponentially. We’ve been focusing a LOT on the mobile site since launching the first local real estate mobile site two years ago – so I’m very happy to announce this feature. Now you can share a listing to the “big three” social networks instantly from anywhere on any device. Check it out by visiting m.woodsbros.com from your smartphone today!
Printable Listing Brochure
You can now click “Print Brochure” on any listing and will be presented with a new layout that’s much more clean and includes some really nice features. We’ve included a ruled area at the top for notes, and a new revised map at the bottom that allows you to map from your address to the property while also including agent-entered driving directions.
Saved Search notifications via Text Message
We’re all-in on the mobile device shift, and to continue to adapt we’ve added text notifications. Now when a property receives a price change, open house, or other update and you have enabled these notifications – you will immediately get a text message! This is only the beginning – and it works very well. To make the change, log in to www.WoodsBros.com, click on “Profile Settings,” and add your Mobile Phone Number and Carrier. Then under “Notification Preferences” select “Text Message.”
In every text message we include an unsubscribe link to allow you to easily unsubscribe at your discretion. Nothing complicated, just a simple click of a link!
Enhanced Search Experience
We continue to enhance our property search to cater both to tablets and to usability. Buttons and headings continue to get larger and more colorful – allowing much easier clicking on iPads and other tablets, as well as drawing attention to them. We’ve also recently updated the “Your Selections” area at the top to allow you to easily see the search criteria you’ve entered. And this is only the beginning — stay tuned!
Show All Photos on Mobile Search Results
We’ve added usability to the mobile site by jumping straight to a page with all of a listing’s photos if the photo count below the primary listing photo is clicked.
That’s all we have for this go-around but much more is coming this year!
