As we discussed back in April, Zillow has been testing out a new email anonymizer and auto-reply system. Zillow has been turning it on occasionally since the beginning of the year. This new system appears to now be Zillow’s approach to email moving forward.
This week we are announcing a couple great new updates to our screening questions. First, we’ve added an Ask More Details option on our custom drop down question. Now, depending upon the answer option your prospect selects, you can ask an additional question. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here is an example from one of our demo pages.
We’re striking out into new territory this week. Specifically, we’re happy to announce our very first (and very modest) attempt at a renter-facing listing site: Schedule-a-Showing.com.
Last April it was just ShowMojo and our slick Craigslist templates. Then Craig and Pete had a falling out and Craig doesn’t reply to Pete’s emails anymore.
ShowMojo now supports lockbox-based scheduling. You can enable Lockbox Code Distribution on any Listing in the Options section.
Several customers have contacted us about odd activity from Zillow that occurred yesterday. Specifically, two related events.
Okay, so it was not the 2007 iPhone announcement. But the excitement around ShowMojo PHONE has surpassed any of our expectations.
Forward any listing inquiry email from any prospect that came from anywhere, and ShowMojo will reply to it just like an inquiry from one our syndication partner sites.
At ShowMojo, we believe your data should be free. (Free as in speech, that is. Not free beer.)
