When it comes to training options for real estate technology, there are a few different schools of thought on what works best. Some want videos, others swear by user guides. At Delta Media Group®, we're big on easy, on giving you — the one using all of that tech — the power to transform your training into exactly what you want and need it to be.
That's why we're thrilled to announce the launch of DeltaNET® Academy, available directly within the DeltaNET CRM. With DeltaNET Academy, users have access to slideshow-based training courses that break down Delta Media Group's industry-leading, all-in-one CRM and wealth of features to their basics, making them simpler than ever to understand. Only a few clicks and admins can easily:
Custom course creation also allows admins to set the metaphorical syllabus. Building your own courses is easy: Choose what you want to highlight and assign it to your team. Then, when a course is completed, associates can take a quiz to ensure they've got a handle on all the information. Plus, DeltaNET Academy tracks who's doing what within the system, so you'll know exactly where everyone stands. Consider it a progress report — we're sure everyone will be a pleasure to have in class.
Don't forget our promise of easy, either. DeltaNET Academy provides a user-friendly, intuitive platform that doesn't feel like a hassle or homework. We're still offering videos and guides, but we're also giving our clients more options with hands-on, engaging learning that gives the power of training back to brokerages.
"When building DeltaNET Academy, we weren't looking for a tool that 'checks the boxes' when it comes to its capabilities," Director of Partner Success Harley Wolfarth says. "DeltaNET Academy gives our users control over course content, visibility, assignment, and even tests/quizzes while keeping those controls and settings in places where you expect to find them. We think we've made something that will make your life easier, not just because your agents and staff can be better trained by the courses you create, but because the process to create those courses is clear and easy as well."
Evolution is part of our Delta Media Group-DNA, so you can be sure we're already working on plans to expand the training offerings within DeltaNET Academy as well. And best of all? DeltaNET Academy comes without any extra cost. No hidden fees. No surprises. Just comprehensive training that gives you and your associates the knowledge to make real estate's most powerful CRM and tech tools work for you.
No one wants to get schooled by their tech. So, jump to the head of the class with DeltaNET Academy and learn the ins and outs of Delta Media Group's game-changing features.
"DeltaNET Academy is a platform to not only educate team members with pre-populated real estate CRM and marketing training, but it is also the platform to empower firms with the ability to create their own custom training programs for anything," Delta Media Group CEO/Owner Mike Minard says. "I'm excited to see how DeltaNET Academy transforms how real estate professionals leverage technology further as they are more empowered in their understanding of how much powerful technology is available to them today."
Lead management is crucial to moving your real estate business forward.
Every lead has their own story. Some are motivated to jump in and get involved with the market right away. Some want to "wait and see." But the vast majority are somewhere in between. It may take weeks or months for them to get started. Proper lead management ensures two things:
With a modern lead management strategy, no time is lost and continuing communication is seamless.
Customer Relationship Management for Real Estate Is Crucial to Staying Ahead of Your Leads
Customer Relationship Management refers to a software suite designed to provide complete visibility into leads and their activities. While CRM is common across many industries, especially in sales, only one CRM suite was built from the ground up with input from real estate pros across the United States: DeltaNET 6.
Following up is the name of the game in real estate. It wasn't that long ago when you had to plan out all of your outreach manually and hope your timing was right — not too much and not too little. These days, your CRM can keep track of lead behaviors and connect the dots so you know precisely when to follow up.
As a DeltaNET 6 user, you'll enjoy a number of other great features:

Real estate has changed quickly over the last year. There are new technologies and new marketing techniques. Some of them leverage trends that were already percolating in the background, accelerated by the pandemic. Others are all-new, the byproduct of the collective ingenuity and creativity of a highly adaptive industry.
Whatever the case, real estate's evolution won't end with COVID-19. On the contrary, agents and brokers should prepare for a fresh era of change — one in which they'll need to draw on recent lessons while connecting with how they can best communicate their unique value to clients.
That's because the time is now to start Zillowproofing your business.
Big or Small, 2021 Is Pivotal to Zillowproofing Your Real Estate Future
Zillow is no longer "just" a place for listings — it's a real competitor.
But don't panic! Zillow has a big budget and even bigger aspirations, but you have competitive advantages that it can never take away. More than that, it can't even come close to replicating them.
Only local real estate pros can:
In sectors of the economy from accountancy to roofing and everywhere in between, motivated professionals and small or mid-sized brands have always found ways to compete successfully with "the big guy." Zillow's brand recognition is a double-edged sword: millions of would-be clients will soon be turning up their noses at the name everyone knows and looking for a local real estate expert who truly cares about their needs.

How do you keep track of everyone you know who might someday buy or sell a home?
Real estate agents need to maintain strong relationships with the people in their orbit. At first, that may mean connecting with family and friends so everyone knows you are there for them when they enter the market. Gradually, it becomes a bit more complex.
You craft and solidify your brand, then extend it further. This helps you shift from your personal network to the community at large, an essential step toward lasting success. It's around this time that traditional methods of staying organized start to get strained. Who in your neighborhood is most motivated to buy or sell? When did you speak to that person last and under what circumstances? When would be the best time for you to follow up to move a transaction forward?
In the old days, keeping track of all these facts and more was a slow, imperfect process.
Luckily, there's a technological solution that can replace the overflowing filing cabinet forever. Not only does it keep your contacts, their details, and your observations in one place — it can help you predict and influence behavior using data captured when people interact with your website.
That solution is Customer Relationship Management (CRM).
Customer Relationship Management Helps You Do More in Less Time
Customer Relationship Management software can save you thousands of hours a year.
With a CRM suite, you gain complete visibility into the activities of all your prospects, leads, current customers, and former customers. You can see at a glance precisely where they stand on their way to becoming clients or, if they are active now, exactly what's going on in their transaction.
Plus, much of what a CRM application does requires no manual data entry on your part.
That's because your real estate CRM can be linked with your website or other aspects of your digital marketing strategy, allowing data to be collected the moment it's entered. That includes any registration forms you post for events such as an open house or a virtual showing.
Real estate agents all over America have discovered a good CRM is the key to work-life balance.
If you want to say goodbye to a huge part of your manual workload, Customer Relationship Management for real estate is imperative — and DeltaNET 6 has all the features you need. Built with input from thousands of real estate professionals, it is the world's top real estate CRM. It also goes beyond what you expect from even the best CRM.
DeltaNET 6 Is More Than Customer Relationship Management
DeltaNET 6 delivers a unique, handcrafted real estate CRM experience, but it also does more.
It is an all-in-one, AI-driven center of excellence for all your real estate digital marketing. Let's take a closer look at some of the many ways DeltaNET 6 can exceed your expectations:

Being a real estate agent often means wearing many hats, and it's so easy to feel like there's not enough time in the day to tackle every task. Fortunately, managing relationships, marketing, inventory, and leads is so much easier when you have the right tools for the job. That's why every agent and real estate firm can benefit from a customer relationship management (CRM) system. The right real estate CRM can be a true boon to your business, allowing agents to convert more leads, unlock inventory, maximize marketing, and free up more time for closing deals.
Unlock Your Inventory With DeltaNET 6
How Every Real Estate Agent Can Benefit from a CRM
The best CRM offers solutions for real estate agents' diverse needs and streamlines the many daily tasks that drive new business. It's both a centralized hub for collecting key client information and a suite of tools for putting that information to work. Perhaps most importantly, it's a major time-saver, with seamless integration of all the tools that agents need to manage relationships from the "nice to meet you" stage to closing day.
Make the Most of Your Marketing and Save Time with Automation
Without the right tools, marketing can be a massive time-sink. The right real estate CRM helps agents save time with AI-driven marketing automation and all the most important, reliable tools for generating new business. Whether it's managing social posts, creating content, setting up online advertising, blasting bulk emails, earning online reviews, or collecting testimonials, DeltaNET 6 makes it easy to manage all of your marketing in one place. With less time spent on marketing, agents can spend more time connecting clients with homes.
Nurture Existing Leads and Uncover New Opportunities
In addition to its many other functions, your CRM is also a repository of information on clients and leads. The more you learn (and remember!) about a lead, the easier it is to earn their business. Your CRM makes it easy to record information on leads and put that information to work. With DeltaNET 6, agents can harness the power of AI for drip email campaigns, newsletters, and follow-up action plans that turn leads into clients.
Connect Clients with Homes and Manage Your Inventory
Real estate clients want to work with agents who "get" them, and connecting clients (or prospects) with the right homes shows that you understand their needs. When working with a new client, you can record all of their home preferences in your CRM and connect them with homes in your inventory that check all of their boxes. Sending listings that perfectly match the client's preferences is an easy way to show them that you're the right choice for their needs.
DeltaNET 6 makes it easy to collect client information so that it's always there when agents need it, and it even provides monthly market reports on all of your market areas for clients who want to stay informed. Our Open House Connector helps agents register clients for open houses through automated marketing campaigns, generate reports from open houses, and follow up automatically after the open house is completed.
Why DeltaNET 6 Is the right Choice for Your Real Estate Success
DeltaNET 6 makes it easy for agents to handle the real estate sales process from start to finish, with tools for marketing, generating leads, nurturing those leads, and unlocking your inventory by connecting buyers with homes. Agents love the intuitive, easy-to-use platform and automated, time-saving tools. With so much time saved on daily tasks, agents have more freedom to do what they do best. Contact us today to get started.
Over the last decade, automation has become one of the most important tools for real estate agents.
With the right software, it's possible to automate complex, multi-step tasks that once took hours to complete. For example, DeltaNET 6 customers benefit from an all-in-one real estate solution that automates social media, email drip campaigns, and much more — potentially saving thousands of hours a year.
At Delta Media Group, we've heard time and again from agents and brokers who have built their workflow on a handful of software products that work best for them. Although many of these products were not designed to work together, they now form the foundation of day-to-day operations.
These professionals want the power of DeltaNET 6, but they don't want to reinvent the wheel by replacing other software they already use. Our new partnership with Zapier provides the answer. Zapier is an integrated automation solution that enables you to use your existing software in amazing new ways.
With Zapier, All Your Apps Can Talk to Each Other Like Never Before
Zapier facilitates communication between diverse online applications, paving the way for superior compatibility. That means no more "workarounds" to get apps from different developers to work together efficiently. You can orchestrate all-new workflows where multiple applications share and act on incoming data.
Zapier's customizable workflows are called "Zaps." They perform actions based on a trigger.
Here's one common Zap:
You receive an email in your work Gmail that includes an attachment
In response to the trigger, Zapier tells your antivirus to scan the file
In response to the clean scan, the file is sent to your work Dropbox
When a new file reaches your Dropbox, Slack alerts you to its arrival
Zaps allow for forking conditions so you can create sophisticated logic without human intervention. In the Zap above, for example, it would make sense to delete the infected file if the antivirus scan turns up a problem. The sender could then be blacklisted or receive an automated response based on their identity.
Zapier takes the guesswork out of application interoperability. As a Zapier user, you become the architect of your workday. A solo agent can do the work of a whole team and a small team can compete head-to-head with the largest, most established agencies in their market. And now, it's all available from your DeltaNET 6 interface.
DeltaNET 6 Zapier Integration is Another Step Forward in Automation for Real Estate
Zapier is the conductor that makes more than 3,000 apps sing. Seamless access to all Zapier's features right in DeltaNET 6 makes it even easier than ever before. Our digital marketing experts have been working around the clock to complete the integration, one of our most requested updates of 2021.
You don't need any coding experience or exhaustive documentation to do great things with Zapier. A user-friendly point-and-click interface lets you start workflows from any application. You get immediate feedback from whatever software you use, so you know right away that your Zaps work as expected.
Introducing Zapier is just another part of our commitment to helping you save time and stay focused on building your practice. With Zapier handling your routine tasks, you can save your energy for fostering the relationships that strengthen your brand. Plus, you can strive for the work-life balance you want without sacrificing quality.
Want to know more about Zapier and how to put its vast capabilities to work for you? We encourage you to give it a try from within the DeltaNET. To get tips and advice on using Zapier direct from the experts, just contact us today.
