In kvCORE, it's possible to capture new leads via text messaging!

Normally, when you post an ad on the internet, it uses a link that someone clicks on, and they then land on your website looking at a list of properties or the landing page you set up. Provided that what they clicked on is what they expected from the advertisement, they are more likely to continue using your website and thus register as a New Lead.

That doesn't really work on a flyer/sign, or on Craigslist. Those mediums do not allow people to click on links. Your only option is to prompt them to take action.

Text codes allow you to prompt the potential leads to send a text message to your smart number to receive the information that they want. Both the word they would text and the information they receive will be set up by you, using the text code feature.

To set up your default code, scroll over the Lead Engine tab from the left-hand navigation menu, then select 'Call Capture'.

Your permanently reserved custom code is your name that we call the 'default' code. On this page, you can edit the response if someone texts your name to your smart number. By default, your name is used in some places such as in Craigslist posts.

Find the Custom Text Codes section and click 'Edit' to the right of your default code.

If this is your first time on this page your name/default should be the only code listed.

After clicking the edit button, you can now set your default message. This is the message people will see when they get a reply from your default custom code.

Enter your message into the 'Reply' box, and then click 'Save'.

Recommendations

  • Link to your Millions Mapped page, a home search app that your contacts/leads can use to browse properties on their phone. TIP: Your millions mapped app link is unique to your personal kvCORE website. You can find more info on Millions Mapped here.

  • Link to your kvCORE website, citing your 'mobile office' as you should with your email signature and voicemail.

Example:

"Thanks for texting me! You can download and access my home search app here: http://red.ecomls.com/app.php "

"Hey! You've reached Red at ecomls.com! If you have any immediate questions ask me here, or visit my mobile office at http://red.ecomls.com/ "

Please Note - red.ecomls.com/app.php  is an example. Do not use it in your message!  The same goes for http://red.ecomls.com. You must find your kvCORE URL in your main menu and add /app.php to the end of it to link to your Millions Mapped app.
