What's New in REW's Second Spring Release
A core principle of innovation is incremental improvement. At Real Estate Webmasters (REW), we reorganized our Product Development team earlier this year to dedicate focus on transformative projects, new product features, and platform optimizations. We did this as a commitment for our clients to trust that while we build new capabilities, we also enhance existing ones. This is Real Estate Webmasters' second product update of Spring 2019. This release brings with it over 60 updates to Discover, Vision, and REW CRM. This includes IDX Social Connect branding updates, performance and functional upgrades, and several new features. The new update rollout process will begin on May 23 for all eligible REW CRM clients. Clients will be notified via email when their site has been patched. REW CRM REW CRM is receiving a few upgrades that will help your workflow. What's Next Badge - The What's Next task icon in the Leads screen now displays a notification badge with the number of tasks that are overdue or due soon. The What's Next badge shows there are two "overdue" or "due soon" tasks. Improved Performance - We have added pagination to the Agents roster in REW CRM, which will greatly improve backend performance for teams and brokerages with large numbers of agents. This will improve performance for campaigns, categories, form letters, and templates. Google PageSpeed Insights Testing - In our continued pursuit of optimization and web performance excellence, REW measures performance as part of our product launch readiness check. Our development incorporates Lighthouse's developer-specific monitoring tools. In this latest release, we have added Google PageSpeed Insights to our benchmarks. We recognize that our clients rely on Google PageSpeed Insights and this added step is our commitment to ensure speed and functionality are integrated in our development efforts. Results from PageSpeed Insights return real-time web experience data that is in close alignment with our clients' and their customers' experiences. From the results, we proactively baseline, identify, and remedy performance issues. The result is to continue delivering the high-calibre experience you have come to expect. Discover and Vision We're excited to bring these updates to both Discover and Vision. Multi-Feed Enhanced Listings - The ability to create Enhanced Listings is a popular feature on Vision and Discover, allowing agents to add their own video, images, and text to existing or manually uploaded listings. In this update, we've added support for Enhanced Listings on sites with multiple listing feeds. Site visitors can now switch between feeds to see every Enhanced Listing on your site. Facebook IDX Social Connect - In the first spring release, we updated the Facebook IDX Social Connect infrastructure in REW CRM to meet Facebook's new development guidelines. In this release, we have updated the Facebook IDX Social Connect feature on both Vision and Discover to match Facebook's brand compliance requirements as of April 29th, 2019. Facebook announced a new circular logo on April 30th. Some of our clients were contacted by Facebook to update to the new logo or risk losing access. We responded quickly and updated the Discover Facebook IDX Social Connect to include the new logo. Vision's Facebook IDX Social Connect logo is planned for updating next. LinkedIn IDX Social Connect - We have updated the LinkedIn IDX Social Connect feature to meet LinkedIn's latest standards, allowing site visitors to continue to register for your site through LinkedIn. Google Branding - With Google+ officially retired, we have updated branding for the Google IDX Connect on both Discover and Vision. We've replaced the Google+ icon with Google's "G" icon. This branding update also applies to the Google icon on the Lead Summary page. Here's what the full slate of IDX Social Connects look like on Discover Discover We're pleased to add several new features to Discover, as well as several helpful improvements and bug fixes. New Features Saved Searches - A "Save Search" button has been added to Discover IDX snippets, allowing site visitors to remember the property search criteria directly from their favorite community pages. The new feature also includes the ability to save polygon searches from IDX snippets. The Save Search button allows Discover site visitors to save their favorite searches directly from your IDX snippets. IDX Require Registration Form - The message text on Discover's Require Registration form is now customizable through the website's backend. What's Your Home Worth CTA - The "What's Your Home Worth" call to action has been added to more recent installations of Discover that had previously excluded the form. Improvements & Fixes Image Lazy Loading - We've improved page load times on Discover by lazy loading all images, meaning images below the fold won't be loaded until the site visitor scrolls down the page. IDX Auto-Responder - The Discover auto-responder for IDX listing inquiries has been updated so your leads will receive the correct email response immediately. Get Local - We have updated the Get Local add-on to order Schools and Amenities by distance. Search Improvements - The "Days on Website" quick search functionality has been improved for feeds without a "Days on Market" field. We've also improved the search form to allow for the visitor to use include multiple entries in the "Location" field, and improved the functionality of the "Sort By" dropdown menu. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Logos - We have improved the responsiveness of all SVG logos on smaller devices and window sizes.

7 Reasons You Shouldn't Miss REW Summit 2019
REW Summit—Real Estate Webmasters' annual conference—is just around the corner Taking place at the ARIA Hotel in Las Vegas from July 24th to July 25th, this year's Summit is bound to be the most epic edition ever. Here are 7 reasons why you absolutely shouldn't miss REW Summit: 1. It's taking place at Inman Connect Las Vegas Inman Connect is one of the premier events in real estate. And for the first time ever, Inman Connect is going to Vegas. We were so excited about the news that we signed on to be the event's first-ever title sponsor. What does that mean for you? You can now access both events with one combination ticket. At Inman Connect, you'll have access to over 250 incredible speakers in the general session, additional access to breakout tracks and learning labs with the industry's top minds, and of course—access to evening "networking" events. REW Summit will be taking place over two afternoon sessions on July 24 and 25th, so you won't have to miss any of the Inman action. 2. Network with top agents, teams, and brokers Inman Connect is a huge event with thousands of agents and vendors from across the world. While this presents an unbelievable learning opportunity, it's easy to get lost in the crowd. REW Summit is much more intimate and focused. Consider it an exclusive conference within a conference for the best of the best in the industry. The more tight-knit setting of REW Summit allows you to genuinely connect with other attendees, forming personal and business relationships that last. Don't believe us? Here's what a past attendee had to say: Being a veteran of KW events, I really enjoyed how easily accessible the information and speakers were. I'm used to being run over by 15,000 people. This was a definite plus about the Summit I got top-rate info and had easy access to the presenters. 3. Get actionable advice from other REW clients Because REW Summit is made up almost entirely of REW clients and partners—the top 1 of the industry—it's the best place to exchange actionable advice that will make a huge impact to your business. Which website customizations have boosted business? Which follow-up techniques are really working? How are they approaching lead generation? Top-producing brokers and agents are always happy to swap secrets and share strategies with non-competing agents, making it an incredibly collaborative and productive experience. Here's what a past attendee had to say: Being so new to [Real Estate Webmasters], I didn't know what to expect. My expectations were blown away, honestly Tremendous take home value for myself and my team 4. Get inspired from industry-leading speakers Inman Connect Las Vegas has an amazing lineup of speakers this year, including Molly Bloom of Molly's Game and the industry's top CEOs (including our very own Morgan Carey). On top of that, REW Summit's speaker lineup brings even more value, as it's specifically tailored to dominating the industry through next-level marketing and technology. Here's a quick preview of our speakers: Jon Cheplak, Cheplak Live - Relationships Matter (Keynote Address): How to grow your business by attracting and retaining top producers Laura Monroe, Real Estate Webmasters - Brand Matters: How to compete in today's crowded market with next-level online branding Vy Luu & Morgan Carey, Real Estate Webmasters - Innovation Matters: A preview of the leading-edge innovations coming next at REW Jack Miller, T3 Sixty - Partnerships Matter: How to get the most out of your technology partners Mark Hughes & Derek May, Nook Real Estate - Niche Marketing: How to get big by getting narrow For the full schedule, check out rewsummit.com. 5. Get valuable face-to-face time with REW staff Ask anyone what they like most about REW. They'll always say "the people." We have an incredible team who cares about client success and will do everything they can to make it happen. REW Summit is the absolute best place to meet face-to-face with our team. We cherish the opportunity for you to meet with our staff because we know it adds significant value to your experience—both at Summit and while working with REW. And as a bonus, we will have an official REW Lounge at Inman Connect Las Vegas. There, you can book time to get hands-on, in-person advice for your project, get to know some of the faces behind your projects, and get a better feel for the culture behind Real Estate Webmasters. 6. You get to party with us Why is this 6? It should be 1. REW Summit is (in)famous for its incredible party. The most memorable stories and takeaways from Summit always come from the evening festivities. The party alone is reason enough to come to Summit Past parties have included live music, dancing, karaoke, and other shenanigans that we'll leave out of this blog post. But remember: the REW Summit party is only available to REW clients and partners. This is a highly exclusive event, so you'll need your Summit ticket to attend. And did we mention we have the Penthouse Suite at the ARIA? All week, you can come hang out with the Real Estate Webmasters crew for meetings and events in our exclusive suite.

Real Estate Webmasters Launches REW Partners Program
We're launching something new I still remember 15 years ago when an online real estate business was a NEW way to gain national exposure, drive leads, and build a highly competitive real estate business. Who remembers logging into the backend of their website, or watching their web traffic convert to actual customers for the first time? I do Dominating the web, search engines, and content was a skill that was talked about on forums and blogs, and as a community. Real Estate Webmasters in particular was the frontline of education and shared knowledge around SEO, lead generation, digital marketing, great web design, and staying ahead of the curve. Today, it's a rare individual who has the mastery to dominate the web. Those who do... dominate traffic, have solid leads, and blow their competition out of the way. And now, it's more important that ever. But only a few teach and share these skills to agents and brokers. REW does—and now we're expanding. We're introducing the official REW Partners Program We're bringing together a network of highly qualified partners to help bring out the best education, tools, and products to help others reach the top 1 in the industry. REW Partners are the rockstars of the real estate industry. The trend-setters. The change agents. The no-BS straight-shooter types. Connected, we want to help our network of agents, teams, and brokerages reach top status. Experienced, we know the best way to do that is with outstanding, award-winning websites, digital and social marketing, and brand and lead generation strategies. It pays to have friends. At REW, our business is much like yours: built on repeat business, referrals, and word-of-mouth marketing. Our clients and partners have helped build what REW is today—partners like Gary Ashton, Justin Havre, and Fredrik Eklund, to name a few. Today, we are formalizing our referral program. With generous incentives and perks, as an REW Partner, you'll earn the most generous referral fees in the real estate industry. We have a mission: To provide a year-round program dedicated to giving back to the individual agent making big moves as a rising star, to the broker or team leader growing a team or branching out independently, or to the large brokerage dedicated to their agent core—helping them embrace solid web strategies and tools to optimize lead gen and productivity. REW Partners will help lead this mission. And we'll have some real fun doing it Events, promotions, retreats, REW Summit, and some amazing income opportunities are in store. Why now? While brokerages are fighting for more market share and vetting an ever-growing flood of new tools and business models—it's VITALLY important for the individual agent to refocus on their online brand, the content they own, and all of their distribution channels to drive revenue generating leads and results. Name recognition and dominating a piece of the web is what will future proof a real estate business. Agents can't afford to just hang out where every agent is on the web (on Facebook). From luxury marketing, to niche marketing, to lifestyle marketing, your real estate brand matters. REW will be the foundation for those making the right investment to be top in their market. Interested in learning more? Check out our REW Partners page for all the details. And by all means: if you have a referral, now is the time to be rewarded

Why you should be texting your real estate leads
If you want success in real estate, you need to be constantly nurturing your leads. But you already knew that. How to perfect lead follow-up? That's the million dollar question... Calling, emailing, meeting face-to-face—these are all vital parts of the lead nurturing process, but what other tools and strategies are there to add to your arsenal? What new, cutting-edge technology is next on the horizon? How about...texting? That's right. If you've already been texting your leads, keep it up. If you haven't been, now's the time to start. The Benefits of Texting Your Leads Here's why you should adopt texting your leads as part of your follow-up strategy: Texting is direct. People carry their phones around with them all the time. When they receive a text, they'll know about it right away. Texting is a fast and efficient way to put yourself right where your lead is. Texting is engaging. People ignore calls and delete emails, but nearly everyone actually reads their texts, and they do so almost immediately. A recent Dynmark report found that SMS messages have a whopping 98 open rate (compared to 20-30 for emails), with 90 of texts being read within 3 seconds You can't beat numbers like that. Texting is convenient. Texting allows you to send information in a way that doesn't feel pushy or overly intrusive. It's also easier to send engaging content. People tend to trust texted links - so they get a much higher click-through rate. Texting is personal. An increasing number of people prefer to text as their primary way of communication, and it's how they choose to communicate with friends and family. Having access to a channel that's direct and familiar is a great way to build rapport with your leads. Texting is different. Your clients are used to being "marketed to" on other channels, while texting has remained a somewhat untouched space. As a real estate agent, you have the opportunity to connect with your leads in a way that most other businesses can't. Texting is efficient. Compared to calling, or emailing, it's much easier to text a lot of people in a short timeframe. This is especially true if you have built-in texting capabilities in your CRM. REW Text for example, an add-on to REW CRM, allows you to text any of your leads directly from your website backend. So, by integrating texting into your lead nurturing process, you have the potential to boost engagement AND save time. It's not often that you actually get more for less. 8 Keys to an Effective Texting Strategy Now that you're sold on the value of texting your leads, there's still the question of how to craft a winning texting strategy. Here are some quick tips on how to make it happen... Keep it simple: Texting isn't quite a conversation, and it's not like a letter campaign. So, keep it short, keep it simple, keep it direct. Have a clear purpose in mind: Are you following up on an email? Looking for a click-through to a listing? Gear your texting strategy towards achieving that specific goal. Include a question: For maximized engagement, a good text will prompt some kind of reply. Including a question is a great way to do this... isn't it? Avoid spam: Blanket, impersonal, unsolicited, or redundant texts that don't add value are less likely to work, and are more likely to drive leads away. So this bears repeating: Always add value. Be prompt: Because that's what people tend to expect with texting. But not too prompt - that might seem suspiciously automated or pushy. Adapt your tone: Adapt your language and style to the rapport you have with the lead. This'll probably correspond to where you have them in your sales process and on your preceding interactions. Integrate texting into a complete strategy: Keep up with your calls, emails, and meetings. The high rate of reply on texts means that no reply is probably a good signal that the lead isn't interested right now - or does it mean you should just try a different approach? A dynamic, responsive strategy is key. Get the right tools: To maximize speed and efficiency, invest in a CRM that lets you text your leads directly from your workspace. Trust your instincts. If this is all new to you, or you'd feel more comfortable with a good-ol'-fashioned telephone call, you may still have some questions about how to text your leads. After all, each lead is different, and "best practices" can give way to guesswork pretty quickly. For example, when preparing to send a text, what's the right timing? Or tone? What kind of text messages "offer value" and create engagement? Ultimately, if you're new to texting leads, you're going to have to trust your sales instincts, or learn what works as you go. We didn't say it would all be easy. But what you should be certain of is that texting is a proven method for generating high engagement numbers in a cost-effective and flexible way, and modern technologies are making this process even quicker and easier. About REW Text Bouncing back and forth between your CRM and your phone can be clunky. That's why we built REW Text. REW Text is an REW CRM add-on that lets you text leads directly from the backend of your website. With this helpful add-on, you can text message your leads straight from the lead details screen in one click. This makes it incredibly convenient to text clients as part of your follow-up process without ever leaving REW CRM. To add REW Text to your website, contact us now or speak to your Product Consultant.
