With our co-hosts Grace Hill and Trulia, we hosted a fantastic webinar on what you should be doing to find and serve your mobile customers. Our presenter (Pierre Calzadilla, Senior Manager of Trulia Rentals) shared real-world tips on what you should be doing (now!) to cater to the mobile renter and how renters engage on mobile platforms; what features they want, and what prices are most searched for – we all learned something new!
Watch the recording to learn some great tips to connect with your owners and grow your marketshare. This webinar was filled with tons of fun facts about local and national consumer trends that will help you better understand the mobile renter.
Here are some interesting highlights from the webinar on how to cater to mobile users:
- Responsive websites are key for connecting to today’s mobile renter
- Having online/mobile applications is a must – it will allow you to streamline your business process and fill vacancies faster
- Because today’s renter prefers calling for listing information rather than sending an email, responding quickly is imperative
- 98% of renters used their mobile device at least once a week to look for a home
