Technology Takes a Giant Leap as RealBiz Media Group Releases Its New App
March 13, 2014 - Ft. Lauderdale, FL
RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (OTCQB: RBIZ) clients include some of the largest Real Estate groups in the US, including Prudential Select Properties, ERA Franchise Systems LLC and Century 21 Hometown Realty. Enterprise clients to date represent over 60,000 real estate agents and over 75,000 real estate listings each week. Since introduction of the MVA in late 2012 the product has constantly shown increased growth and agent acceptance.
In releasing its Micro Video Application (MVA) Version 3.0 for nationwide clients, RealBiz says its clients will now be able to update listings instantly, not only through video, but one-click social media connections and SEO enhancements aiding agents with ranking and lead generation.
The new Video App features enhance the white-labeled real estate agent marketing and sales multi-media tool, expanding agents' abilities to develop and distribute engaging video-driven marketing communications via social media platforms and email. RealBiz Media custom-tailors the MVA product for each client.
"After extensive beta testing, we have released a MVA update that addresses client marketing efforts to increase consumer engagement. Our relationship marketing tools ensure agents have a broad palette of tools from which to choose, creating variety and originality in their individualized campaigns," said Steve Marques, President and CRO.
Product features of the new release include SEO enhancements, mobile usage optimization and the ability to auto-post to social media outlets. MVA improvements include reduced creation push-based processing time, new administrative and analytics tools on enterprise-tailored admin consoles, as well as general support and reliability aspects. Clients will experience SEO improvements with features emphasizing metadata utilization, and white-labeled listing videos which are resulting in increased search listings with video snippet thumbnails.
The company anticipates increased daily, ongoing adoption of the MVA technology, as the products were modified to each broker's custom platform model. "Version 3.0 of the enterprise MVA product encompasses over four months of testing and tailoring with each enterprise client, since the release of Version 2.0," said Marques. "Enterprise client reactions during beta testing in February were highly favorable; we anticipate a dramatic increase in brokerage adoption with the enhanced features of Version 3.0."
Enterprise client MVA platforms will continue to be modified and upgraded with new features. "RealBiz Media Group truly partners with its enterprise broker clients to deliver high performance and strong results for its nationwide clients. Since the release of the first MVA enterprise product in late 2012, we have focused much of our efforts on fine-tuning the enterprise client product offerings, and will continue to hone it with technological advances that put our broker clients at the forefront of the real estate market," said Marques.
The company's focus upon video messaging harnesses the power of next generation niche marketing for real estate agents. Its MVA technology provides a highly cost-effective method for agents to generate listings and expanded client bases.
