Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2010
RealBird Inc., a leading provider of Internet marketing tools for real estate professionals announced today the availability of the RealBird WordPress real estate plugin which makes it easy for real estate agents to automatically add to a blog post an interactive map showing listings for sale in any neighborhood. The WordPress plugin uses Google Base™ online database as source for the listings. The Google Base™ online database lists syndicated listings from a variety of sources such as real estate agents and brokers, Multiple Listing Services, virtual tour providers, foreclosure aggregation sites, apartment rentals and even FSBOs (For Sale by Owners)
An example of a WordPress site using RealBird's plugin is Janie Coffey's website at http://www.TheCoralGablesStory.com
The plugin is available to RealBird PRO members. The cost of RealBird PRO service is $99/year. The installation is quick and easy, with a step by step tutorial provided.
In addition to the Property Search module, the RealBird PRO service also includes unlimited single property websites with syndication to the major portals each with virtual tour links for marketing via MLS Internet Data Exchange, social media widgets, such as for Facebook and for blogging platforms such as for ActiveRain. The RealBird single property websites also make it easy to share via other social media bookmarking sites including Twitter.
The RealBird Property Search which is at the basis of this WordPress real estate plugin has been in use since August 2009 by thousands of real estate agents who are reporting great results in terms of lead generation and user satisfaction. The Property Search can be easily customized with just a few clicks to create specific search links to be added to websites, blogs, or used in standalone mode as a dedicated search website. The Property Search also includes a customer login module where homebuyers can save their searches and favorite listings.
Zoltan Szendro, EVP and CTO of RealBird explains: "During the past few years the real estate market has undergone profound changes, and a nice "traditional" cookie-cutter website is no longer enough for agents to generate leads. That is why there is massive migration from such websites to WordPress based hybrid sites which allow for maximum flexibility in combining static pages with blog posts while optimizing look and feel, usability and search engine ranking, at a very low cost."
Janie Coffey commented: "I absolutely love using the RealBird map-based WordPress plugin. Providing local content as a resource to your community is so important in creating a "sticky" blog. The content of my blog is roughly 50% real estate specific and 50% community specific. Using the RealBird plugin, even the community specific posts now provide real estate info around the blog post's topic (i.e. local park, coffee shop, event), gently reinforcing the fact that I sell real estate, while providing useful content on the community to my readers. It's ingenious and easy and a must have for anyone with a local or hyper-local real estate blog."
RealBird's services include listing marketing and lead generation tools uniquely tailored to the needs of the residential and commercial real estate industry. The RealBird Listing Publisher provides a free, next generation Property Website builder with syndication to 3rd party classified sites and advance presentation tools. The RealBird Map-based Search service couples the traditional, form-based property search with the ability to browse listings on a street or aerial map. RealBird's latest Property Search Tool widget offers user friendly, flexible implementation with national coverage, using syndicated listing data from Google Base™.
