This might have been important pre smartphone, however now that you can be online in the offline world, with the same information in your hands, your focus should lie in the areas where the large portals cannot compete with you; your physical listings.

This opportunity happens when they use text message lead generation in their marketing,” says John Lim, Co-Founder & CEO of Life in Mobile.
By utilizing text message lead generation on your listings not only do you put yourself in a position where the big portal cannot compete, but you give yourself the opportunity to earn the max commission dollars from the leads you receive.

This is the single biggest mobile opportunity for real estate professionals in today’s market hand down.
