SmartyPhone Property Manager (Landlord)#3 * TEXTING*It's the NEW Black

I have found the of TEXTING....even before Craigslist allowed responses to their postings via TEXT....I found TEXTING as a viable alternative to voicemail a few years ago.

phone number
 
contact name

My smartyphone allowes for me to put a "signature" in my texts so I have my name and an active link to my website at the bottom of my texts AUTOMATICALLY.

I can keep track of our texting conversations because if my correspondant is already in my Google Contacts, their name and contact phone # shows up so I can see prior texts.

I also ask for confirming texts prior to a property viewing....this tells me that 1) the prospect is text-savvy and 2) and reconfirms their contact phone number.

Once I got comfy with texting I found the MIGHTYTEXT app that allows me to text from my computer....the app allows texting conversations to be kept on my phone, tablet and computer.....it is easier to use and ready-made for frequent disbursement of the same information.

When a rental prospect calls me and leaves a voicemail message....if my response phone call goes to THEIR voicemail....I just use a MightyText message to send them to my website.

...and don't let the little buttons confuse you....I have a small rubber tipped stylus that connects to the "ear piece" connection of my phone so that I can save my fingernails and type faster......I buy them in bulk from Amazon and when anyone asks me what they are, I give mine to them....

I NEVER want to miss an opportunity to accessorize......

Sounds like you are very tech savvy...good for you. I try to be. :) I find texting is better than email and voicemail.

I can't believe I have almost my whole desk and files on my phone....who would have thought this 20 years ago except Steve Jobs!

MightyText is a great tool for Realtors.  It sure beats sitting at your desk and having to pick up your phone to respond to texts since you can do it on your desktop or laptop instead of a micro keyboard.
