The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Facebook Tabs, Real Estate Widgets, and Badges

FREE Facebook Tabs, Real Estate Widgets, and Badges - Powerful Webtools that Produce Results

Here are 3 different Webtools for your business.  Everyone today is searching for the best possible tools that can provide the most value to their visitors and targeted prospects.  The more value you can deliver, the better.  Here are some tools that will definitely bring you and your clients additional value. These are webtools that get noticed, help you connect, and will also help grow and establish more relationships and business.



Facebook tabs help bring additional value to your Facebook Business pages by providing content that your friends and clients need and are looking for.  When they don't have to ask, it's even that much better.  Plus, you don't have to do anything, the Facebook tabs update and keep current automatically all by themselves.  Best of all, it's as easy to install them and it can be done in less than one minute. 

Add any of These Powerful Facebook Tabs to your Business page on Facebook and see what happens.

Facebook Tab "LIVE" Examples:



Real Estate Widgets provide valuable information and data while at the same time inspire users to interact and engage with the data being provided.  Loan comparisons, listing and rental availability, market statistics and neighborhood research, etc.  Take a look at these Widgets and see which ones work best for you. There are over 30 Widgets to choose from in 5 different real estate categories.

Badges and yes, you do need These Stinking Badges.  They are the stamp of approval and represent your involvement, participation, and commitment on different sites where you participate. Your clients and those that they refer to you want and need to know where you hang your business associate hats.  Badges tend to carry clout and show your commitment much like a Sheriff's Badge.  Selecting the right badge and where to place them is up to you, and there's quite a selection here:

Co-branding using widgets and badges is one of the most powerful marketing and FREE advertising tools I've seen on the web. Co-branding is what allows you to capture the eyes of your target audience and capture their attention and information for "contact conversion" at the appropriate time. 

* ALL these widgets and badges offer FREE Co-Branding!  Read More About FREE Co-Branding


The webtools mentioned above are just that, WEB TOOLS!

They are created and intended to help do three things: 1. provide value, 2. have the least cost with the most effective results for a positive ROI, and 3. connect you with consumers, clients, and prospects to build a rapport, establish trust and a relationship, and grow your business and financial success.

Here are some FREE webinars you're welcome to attend:
FaceBook for Real Estate
on Aug. 26th and Widgets and Gadgets on Sept 28th.

Brad, you're always a great source of information. I've finally started using widgets. Will need to go play with them.

Posted by Connie Harvey, Realtor - Nashville TN Real Estate (Pilkerton Realtors) about 9 years ago

Hey Jeff - can you email me a screen shot or more details on the error message?  I can try and help you with it once I see what you see.  Thanks. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 9 years ago

Brad, When I click on add the tabs and connect the accounts, I keep getting an error message when I log in to zillow.. it wants a whole list of things like first name etc but no input fields.. It won't connect the accounts.  Looks great but couldn't get it to work.

I am bookmarking so I can digest what you have to say.  But I am certainly going to do a sheriffs badge as soon as I can.  Sheriff Kennedy, I like the sound of that.  Now all I need is a six shooter, whatever that is.

Hi Brad, I missed seeing this the first time around and thanks to Gita's reblog, I saw it this morning. Bookmarked and coming back tonight to work on those widgets and badges some more. I also need to know how you do your subscription buttons in your blogs, What is the url that is used for email subscription and for active subscription?

Posted by Jerry Newman, Texas REALTOR, San Antonio Military Relocation (Brown Realty, 210-789-4216, about 9 years ago

Hey Jerry - glad Gita reblogged this so you'd see it.  In order to setup the subscribe via email or AR buttons, you just need to get the right URL for each graphic and then create the links.  

Here's a quick how-to:

1. Insert Image or Button graphic on your signature page or Blog post.
2. Use the email subscription URL from Feedburner or Feedblitz (whichever email subscription service you use)
3. For an AR Subscribe Button, use the same URL as the one on your AR sidebar (the one under your photo)
4. Click on the button or graphic, select the "linking tool" on the AR toolbar, and then add the URL.

If you need any assistance, let me know, I'd be happy to try and help.  :-)
