CellSigns unveils a mobile marketing and the real estate industry.
A potential buyer pulls up to a home for sale. Prompted by a CellSign, he or she uses a cell phone to text message the property's ID # to 79274 (QWASI).
The key to making this work is the shortcode recognition. The code has to be easy to remember.
There are 2 that I use because they stick in my head (and they are fast) 4INFO (44636) and GOOGL(46645). With 4INFO I dont even have to remember the number, my Treo automatically translates.
Within seconds a text message is returned to the buyer's phone with information about the home (including a description, number of beds and baths, and price) and contact information for the agent.
The potential buyer may then request more information, a call from the agent, or schedule a showing. The agent is notified immediately, calls the buyer, and accelerates the sale
