Summertime, and the Listin’ Is Easy

 15th August 2017    David_Perlmutter

Summertime, and the listin’ is easy,* or really just easier, but that doesn’t scan as well. I’ll explain. When you sign up for a free trial individual user Premium Membership to QuantumListing, we’ll add your first listing for you.  And we are happy to add more, but we want you to have a little skin in the game, too, and really it is just a little. Right now, you are saying, huh? Have a look at the chart below.

Let’s say you have twelve listings, and you want us to add them for you. First, you register for QuantumListing, and then you are sent to your profile page. On the left side of the page, you’ll see the number of days left in your Premium Membership. Click on the number and you’ll go to a page with payment plan options. In this example, you’ll click on the 3 month/$24.99 option and then the Create Order button. This will bring you to the payment page. Click on the PayPal button to securely complete your transaction with PayPal or your credit card.

If you are doing the free three month trial membership, all you have to do is send your listing flyer or information sheet to [email protected] with the words “Please add this” in the subject line and we’ll take care of it (send us your password, or we’ll give you a new one which you can change when we are done adding your listing or listings). If you choose one of the other membership options, we’ll give you a call to discuss adding your listings.

That’s it! Sounds easy, right?

New Feature: White Label Listing Delivery to Your Website

 5th June 2017    David_Perlmutter

QuantumListing has just rolled out White Label Listing Delivery, another incredible value-added feature for its Premium Members. With just a few simple steps, your webmaster can add listings to your site that are framed by your website and only have your company branding. This gives you the ability to quickly and easily create a listing page on your website for each one of your listings. This is all it takes:

  1. Select the listing and go to its detail page.
  2. Click on the </>Share button on the listing detail page to generate an iframe code snippet.
  3. Click the Copy Code Button
  4. Create a page for the listing on your website and paste the generated code into the html for that page and publish it. You can customize the frame dimensions to suit your needs.

That’s it!

This White Label option joins the other ways already available to share the listings posted on QuantumListing to your website, namely, creating a URL link to your QuantumListing Profile page and adding your selected listings with our customizable sharing widget. All of these options are included in your Premium Membership at no additional charge. So, you have three different ways to serve listings to your site for as little as $79.99/year for Individual members or $899.99/year for Enterprise members.

This video shows you how to generate the iframe code snippet:

Here’s an example of what a QuantumListing White Label listing looks like on a website:

QuantumListing Serves Your Listings to Your Website

 20th April 2017    David_Perlmutter

Did you know that mobile-friendly QuantumListing serves your listings to your website, and its at no extra cost? Once you’re a Premium Member ($79.99/year for Individual Users, $899.99/yr for Enterprise Users) and have added your listings to QuantumListing, there are a couple of easy ways to do add your listings to your site.

The simplest way is to link your Account page to the menu bar at the top of your website. This is a “set it and forget it” solution. The Account page is your home base on QuantumListing. It is where you go to add, edit and delete your listings. There are several other features on your account page, but we’ll focus on the listings for now.  Listings appear on your Account page in the order that you added them, with the newest at the top.

dresRochester, NY’s Donovan Real Estate Services has a link at the top of their menu bar that sends users to their account page on QuantumListing.  When they add, edit or delete a listing, they don’t have to worry about making changes on their listing service and on their website because the pages are one and the same.  When you click on their Listings link, it takes you to their Account page on QuantumListing. I liked this solution so much that I did the same thing on the Perlmutter Properties website!

Recckio Real Estate in Buffalo, NY took a different approach. You don’t click directly from their menu bar to QuantumListing. Instead, they have a Search Properties link. When you click on that, you see a few featured properties, and then there is a button to go to see all of their listings on their account page at QuantumListing.

The QuantumListing sharing widget is another option for serving your listings to your website available for those of you willing to do a little bit more work. The sharing widget generates a snippet of code that you can embed on your website to serve your listings. You can customize the colors to emulate the look of your website. It also allows you to choose which listings are shared and in what order. You can generate more than one snippet, giving you lots of flexibility and options on how you deploy your listings on your website. For instance, you could have a page on your website for each asset class, or a page each of for sale and for lease listings. You can also select listings to illustrate a blog post, too. Here’s an example of how I did that on the Perlmutter Properties Blog.

Personally, I love it when I look at Google Analytics and see that users are being referred to QuantumListing.com from other sites. It’s free marketing. The toughest part of a start up is user acquisition. If other users can help generate the traffic to our site at no additional cost to them or us, it is a win/win solution. We’re all creatures of habit, and admittedly for most commercial real estate searchers, QuantumListing is not the habitual site they are first going to today for their commercial real estate search. As more users adopt QuantumListing for its mobile-friendliness, it’s ever expanding and improving array of features, and as a high quality, low cost alternative, we’ll gradually change the habits of the commercial real estate industry. Delivering your listings to your site at no extra cost to you is a great way we can work together to change those habits. Give it a try.

Suggestion Box

Click on the box to share your suggestion

Since I wrote the previous post, The Power of Suggestions just a few days ago, I’ve gotten two more suggestions, one of which is already implemented, and the other which I hope will get rolled out next week.

When QuantumListing started as an iOS app, it had two options of transaction type from which to select, For Lease or For Sale. In the last couple of months, we added  a third, For Lease & Sale. When a user searched, there were four options for transaction types to search, All (which is the default), For Lease, For Sale and For Lease & Sale. A recently joined Premium Member asked, if a property is designated For Sale & Lease, does it show up in both the For Lease and For Sale searches. I checked, and the answer was no.

I asked the tech team to implement it, and within 48 hours it was live on the site. The user who asked the question has well over a hundred listings, which he is in the process of adding to QuantumListing. He has been using Loopnet, and he pointed out that they only offer two choices for transaction types, For Sale or For Lease. So, when he had a property that was both for sale and lease, he had to enter it two times. And, guess what? They don’t give you an unlimited number of listings for the same price. The more listings you enter, the more you pay. QuantumListing’s policy is Premium Members can post an unlimited number of listings. Under Loopnet’s pricing structure, with the number of listings he has, he’d have to pay thousands of dollars per year. With QuantumListing, he’ll be paying $79.99 a year. Click HERE to see our Features and Pricing charts.

As for the other feature suggestion, keep checking the QuantumListing Blog for the announcement. All I’ll tell you now is that it is another search enhancement. If you have a suggestion that you’d like us to consider, click HERE.

If you’re not a member yet, what are you waiting for? Fill out the form below for a free three month trial. If you are already a member, thank you! Please tell all your colleagues about QuantumListing and get them to join and add their listings. Together, we’ll create a listing platform that everyone can easily afford, and where your future customers can search your listings for FREE.
