Real.io: free social media dashboard
NorthReal, Inc. has rolled out Real.io, which Justin Buonamano, VP of Marketing describes as the social media dashboard for real estate professionals. “Think of it as similar to hootsuite but tailored to real estate with an open source code and many new plugins.”
Real.io offers a modern look and feel, and helps real estate professionals to “harness the power of social media and build their online community in minutes,” the company says.
The tool pulls content from major social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others, allowing users to engage with their audience in targeted markets in real-time right from their desktop. The company says they are working on an iOS and Android release to make the dashboard mobile.
Some of the features include “a convenient heads-up display where users can generate one-click snapshot reports of social campaigns and easily schedule posts to the big three social platforms,” and offers property listing marketing, open house promotion options, and a new location-based add-on helps real estate professionals to find customers right in their own backyard. “With Real.io Maps you can engage with your local audience, track relationships, grow your business pipeline and close more deals in less time.”
