Our Twitter traffic has given the Agentopolis web site a noticeable traffic boost, which we use to promote our featured agents.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
Agentopolis a 3 year old real estate agent directory with over 1 million agents listed has just added a social media widget which gives agents and consumers access to over 45 social media sites and tools for sharing real estate information. By adding this social media widget Agentopolis is one of the first real estate sites that make it easy for agents and consumers to share property listings, agent profiles, and agent recommendations with their family, friends, and coworkers through their social networks.
"The timing couldn't be better" says Ken Horst, founder of Agentopolis. With sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter growing at alarming rates of speed, Horst thinks this is the right time to give real estate the lift of social networking and social media. While most real estate sites have the ability to email property info to a friend, none offers full social media sharing functionality.
One of the biggest advantages of sharing real estate listings and info on social networks is how easily your listing can go viral, meaning it is continually shared by friends of friends across many personal networks reaching far more people than traditional marketing methods for a small fraction of the price. For only $47 per year, Agentopolis featured agents can add as many property listings as they want to their profile and these listings will appear in the "Home Search" section of Agentopolis, and will all now include the social media sharing tool.
Agentopolis recently received its own social media boost on Twitter adding 150 new followers a day and recently passing the 11,000 follower mark. "Our Twitter traffic has given the Agentopolis web site a noticeable traffic boost, which we use to promote our featured agents." Horst added.
Agentopolis, founded in 2006 is the largest easily searchable Real Estate Agent specific directory in the US. For more information about Agentopolis and to see the social media sharing tool in action, visit Agentopolis.
