  • SmartZip Enhances Demand Generation Tools to Help Real Estate Professionals Land More Seller Business

    Hacienda’s SmartZip Analytics, creators of predictive marketing technology for the real estate industry, has unveiled new and improved lead generation and follow-up tools for its existing SmartTargeting clients. The company’s seller-focused lead generation site, SmartHomePriced, which offers an automated home valuation to homeowners, has been fine-tuned to increase lead conversions among likely sellers. SmartZip has also partnered with Landvoice to give clients the ability to purchase phone number matching services for leads that do not provide full contact information.
     
    “The new SmartHomePrice is light years ahead of anything else out there,” said SmartTargeting client Gary Anderson. “While other automated valuation sites ask for contact information first, SmartHomePrice now allows homeowners to get community information and insights upfront. As an agent, I believe in providing value before asking for anything, and I know this simple but straight-forward process will help me convert more often while giving potential leads the information they truly want.”
