How to integrate your real estate SMS platform with popular software

Learn how to sync your SMS platform with popular real estate software to save time on administrative tasks and more time closing deals.

In a fast-paced real estate market, every second counts.

Administrative tasks — like syncing contact data between software and sending reminders — take away time away from sourcing leads and closing deals. 

If you use texting in your real estate business, I’ve got a little hack for you: Use Zapier integrations (also known as Zaps) to connect your SMS marketing platform with other tools.

You can sign up for a free Zapier plan, which comes with 100 automated tasks per month, to see if it actually saves you time. 

Let’s look at some popular examples I’ve seen SimpleTexting’s real estate customers use. Then, I’ll show you how to set up an integration (it only takes a few minutes).

📌 Note: Make sure you have your contacts’ express written consent to send them promotional texts, even if you’ve already interacted with them from another channel.
