I was asked the other day to recommend a few websites which estate agents might find useful.
It was a good question as it got me thinking about what makes for a useful website or as you’ll see below app.
So, here are six of the best (in my humble opinion) and why I think they’re worth a look.
If you’re not putting video into your estate agency’s marketing mix you’re missing a trick. An ever-increasing number of people are accessing information via videos.
And a very large chunk of these people are watching these videos when they’re somewhere that broadcasting to the World what they are looking at might not be appropriate (having a doss at work, being on a train, bus, waiting room etc).
Rev provide a value for money captioning service which does a good job of overlaying subtitles on your videos.
Pixabay.com and Unsplash.com
Don’t nick images off the internet. Taking photos off the net which you don’t have permission to use can land you with a costly bill. Rather than run that risk (plus, it’s not good form) simply look at Pixabay and / or Unsplash for a massive array of photos and images which you can use commercially for free with no copyright issues.
There’s an option to credit the photographer which I always aim to do but is not compulsory.
A nice app which turns your mobile phone into a scanner. Decent enough quality and is useful when out and about and needing to scan something quickly.
What’s a meditation app doing on this list to help estate agents? Well, if you are good at what you do you’ll be so busy you’ll have countless thoughts racing around your head like kids at an indoor play centre after downing loads of sugar!
We live in an age where we are bombarded by messages, information, requests, demands etc.
And this app acts as a counter balance to that with guided meditations ranging from 60 seconds to 20 minutes. I use it first thing in the morning to give me a little more clarity and purpose about the day ahead.
Think about it. What’s the biggest asset you have?
For me, there’s absolutely no doubt it’s your health, both mental and physical.
Followed by time. Which leads me to the last website.
Yes, this is a left field one. But I know from a few chats I have had with agents / friends this is a site a lot of people can benefit from. I know I have.
Back in January I took on the One Year No Beer 365 Day challenge- that’s right a whole year with no alcohol.
They also offer 28 and 90-day challenges and support people via daily emails, forums, podcasts and Facebook posts.
For me the past six alcohol free months have seen my energy rocket, my mindset improve enormously, seven kilos in weight dropped and hundreds of extra pounds gained in my business account. And loads more time to do stuff.
Even the best ideas / techniques in the World get drowned out by the fog of a lingering hangover.
And as bonus site worth checking out if you’re struggling to find the time to create your own written content for your agency check out my other site – www.estateagentcontent.co.uk
Thanks for reading and I’d love to know which websites and apps you find useful for your agency and personally.
