Oakland, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2006 –-
iHOUSE Web Solutions, a division of CIS Data Systems™, Inc., and a leader in real estate web site design, hosting, and online marketing services, announced an expansion of the features and functionality of its iHOUSE template-based websites for real estate professionals. Dozens of new, customizable designs are now possible with the new layouts and graphic elements that have been added to the image library. Expanded business functionality includes email enhancements, more online listings options, and advanced website traffic tracking capabilities.
“To strengthen our position as the premier online marketing solution for real estate professionals, we have greatly expanded the iHOUSE website design choices as well as the practical business functionality, at no additional cost to our customers” says Paul Sheng, CEO. “We are especially pleased to offer our new webmail service, iMail, because this vital communications tool has a major impact on their daily business operations. And its functionality now rivals Google’s gMail.”
The iHOUSE iMail service now provides 1GB of capacity for each webmail account and also includes a new spam-blocker that allows a user to mark certain mail as “spam” or “not spam,” which trains the filters for that particular mailbox. The spam blocker service uses best-in-class technology, effectively blocking over a 1 million spam messages each day. Additional iMail features include HTML-enabled editing capabilities, receiving notifications on computer desktops when email is received, the ability to check other email accounts from iMail, and the ability to have messages automatically highlighted when received from certain individuals.
In addition to its basic traffic reports, iHOUSE has also recently launched a new Traffic Analyzer report that offers more advanced traffic tracking capabilities. Key features enable customers to review daily and monthly traffic statistics for the entire website, define the reporting period to be viewed, and track page-specific traffic. Users can also see the online origin of their web site visitors—direct entry, bookmarks, search engines and links from other sites—as well as which search engines have recently indexed their sites. Updated every eight hours, this data will assist iHOUSE customers with their online marketing initiatives.
“Adding these features, along with the ability to easily post listings on Yahoo!, Oodle, and Trulia real estate search engines,” continues Sheng, “makes an iHOUSE website a very powerful online marketing tool for real estate professionals.”
