Real Estate Technology a Game-Changer
Change is hard, but managing the daily tasks of today's real estate professionals without the best real estate technology is even more challenging. Every real estate agent would like to spend more time selling homes and less time on repetitive daily tasks. Real estate technology is a game-changer because it gives agents more time to focus on the parts of the job that they love most, without compromising on the daily, nuts-and-bolts tasks that drive new business.

Real estate agents need to see how integrating technology and automation into their businesses leads to substantial long-term gains. The easiest way to do that? Choose the right real estate technology, make sure sales associates understand why it benefits them, and provide the training/support necessary to make integrating new tools as seamless as possible.

DeltaNET 6 Email Drip Campaigns
When it comes to real estate, success is all about relationships.

Email Drip Campaigns for Real Estate
Drip, Drip, Drip. Hear that sound in the middle of the night, and you probably drag yourself out of bed to turn off the bathroom faucet. However, apply it to your real estate business, and it's the sound of profit.

Drip email campaigns are email marketing campaigns where you nurture leads by developing a relationship of trust and building an ongoing connection.

A targeted email has some of the highest returns on investment of any marketing technique when it comes to real estate. Research shows that a well-designed campaign may have 40x ROI or more––that is, you stand to make $40 for every $1 you invest.

How can that be?

Email is incredibly scalable. Real estate marketing automation lets you send warm, personalized email messages to one person, a thousand, or ten thousand. Work it out, and you find each email costs just a few cents, with value improving as you gain more clients.

And it naturally solves one of the biggest problems there is: Most people aren't ready to use your services when they first meet you.

There's a reason generations of real estate agents have spent their first few years chasing referral business: It might take weeks, months, or even years before a new lead is ready to move forward.

Many factors go into buying or selling, and you can only influence a few of them. But one you can control is whether you always present yourself as a trustworthy and credible expert.

Drip campaigns are how you do it, warming up cold leads for when the time is right.

Harley Wolfarth Video Marketing

Use Video Marketing to Grow Your Real Estate Business

I'm going to level with you. I hate supporting third party software--I really do.

I don't work for Facebook or YouTube. I barely have a Facebook account. When it came to making guides to set up live streams and uploading videos to YouTube and Facebook, I knew they were necessary, but I was going to be in for a rough time. After all, the most challenging part here is going to be the technical side of things, right?.

Well, as it turns out, not so much. Many of you already had some expertise there. When COVID-19 made words and phrases like "quarantine," "stay-at-home order," and "essential businesses" part of our daily vocabulary, you took the creation and uploading of video in stride. These days, the questions we get aren't about the actual act of getting these videos recorded and posted, but rather, what kind of content should be in them and what the difference is between the different types of videos you can make to market your listing and yourself. I'm hoping I can shed some light on that and maybe simplify your life in doing so.

Search Functionality Real Estate Website

In this article for Delta Media Group's real estate industry publication, Real Estate Marketing and Technology MagazineFranklin Stoffer discusses how search functionality builds a powerful online brand and generates leads for your real estate business.

Search Functionality Helps Achieve Your Online Goals

When it comes to real estate websites, I have only heard of two primary goals that real estate firms and sales associates want to accomplish.

  1. Clients want their website to generate business or leads. 
  2. Clients want their website to showcase their unique brand and be a place for their company to have a powerful identity online.

In my opinion, the only way you can truly accomplish both a powerful lead-generating website that also speaks to your brand is to offer the most robust search functionality in your market with an easy-to-use design.

Canton, Ohio – August 19, 2020 - Delta Media Group® Inc., one of America's most established and largest broker technology solutions providers, announces its most advanced website and digital marketing platform with built-in CRM - DeltaNET® 6 - will be available directly to individual real estate agents and teams, as well as small brokerages for the first time.

Until now, the DeltaNET platform has been aimed at larger real estate brokerages and franchises. Beginning August 24, the entire DeltaNET 6 CRM platform with all features unlocked will be available to agents and teams as a 30-day no commitment trial offer. A free webinar that details the new program is set for Tuesday, August 25, at 3:00 pm Eastern Time, with details here (bit.ly/Delta-Free-Webinar).

"The best CRM is the one an agent will use," says Michael Minard, CEO, and owner of Delta Media. "Delta Media is offering agents and teams a CRM solution that's instantly adopted because it's fully integrated into the automated tools they'll use every day both for their websites and all their digital and traditional marketing."

Minard explains individual agents and teams can leverage an array of automation using DeltaNET 6, from set-and-forget drip prospecting campaigns and My Customer for Life auto email engagement offerings to Facebook and LinkedIn connectors, and its unparalleled eCards and flyers platform. "One system to capture, cultivate, and connect to clients," says Minard.

In addition to the built-in CRM, one of Delta's platform's most significant advantages is website and digital marketing customization, ensuring differentiation between brands that compete in any market. "Agents and teams thrive on differentiation," he adds.

Minard notes artificial intelligence improvements will enrich its DeltaNET 6 CRM capabilities. New AI features will power agent and team websites by offering consumer suggestions and automated marketing engagements – all tracked automatically inside its built-in CRM. Consumer search, for example, will monitor consumer behavior to anticipate the next steps. For agents and teams, artificial intelligence will help them review their sales funnel and make suggestions on which customers need to be contacted.

At the end of the 30-day trial, real estate professionals can keep the full-featured DeltaNET 6 platform for $99 a month, select from a starter program at $25 a month, or pay $49 a month for a more advanced program. Full details on these new program options will be available in September.

A New Era in Real Estate Technology

I must admit that I am hesitant to write this article and share my thoughts because this concept has been abused far too long in the real estate industry. With that said and out in the open, I truly believe that we are entering into a new real estate technology era.

Before you completely discount what I am saying as marketing gobbledygook, I ask that you consider my thinking.

As I continually look to the future and plan the technology vision of the Delta Media Group platforms, such as the DeltaNET, I know that, from a technology standpoint, we are on the verge of monumental changes and advancements. These changes are happening right now because of the maturity of some platforms (for example, the DeltaNET is 26 years old), the maturity of computing platforms in general, coupled with a future-looking vision, and the ability to execute on that vision and bring products to market.

Real Estate Technology - What's on the Horizon?

Putting myself outside of my technology mind for a moment, let's consider what I see coming immediately for real estate professionals. What does this mean for the everyday user of the technology?

Under challenging conditions, real estate experts have pulled together and excelled. Firms big and small change the way they do things, renew their commitment to the community, and show how stellar customer service is still possible in a changing world.
