We have always counted the number of hits to media presentations. The new counter will record the referring website(if allowed), record date, visitor status and more. With this new Counter application we will be able to provide timeline statistics about the activity on each of your finished tours. The counter is listed as “Tour Statistics” under “Your Account” heading. Login is required.
I just fixed the link to the QR Code Generator for our mobile application for displaying your listings on mobile devices. It was being directed to a non-existant page. Careless error by me.
Over the past 15 years, we have seen many “must use” technologies that never reach the promise of “must use”. We think the simple and easy QR Code technology that scans information into mobile devices and initiates quick results is a winner. These codes work only if the result is what the mobile user is needing. We have developed 2 mobile applications your customers want, a list of your properties and a resulting photographic and detailed display of your listed property.
Visit our QR Code page at: http://www.real-connect.com/qr-codes-for-your-mobile-listings/ to see examples and how you can start utilizing this technology in your advertising campaigns.
Of course, there is more to come…..
We changed our downloaded zip files of photos to rename the photos in chronological order as they display in the slideshow. Prior to this, they used the naming convention we use, but when placed into a directory, would not display chronologically.
We have included on our website an online pdf file about homeowners preparing their homes for photography. We highly recommend forwarding a copy of this document to your homeowner before photography gets scheduled. View and download the PDF at http://www.real-connect.com/Staging-for-Photography.pdf
A customer reported today that some slideshows were not working when accessing them through www.HAR.com. We determined the problem to be with updated Internet Explorer browsers and repaired the code causing the access problems.
We have completed our mobile app for smartphones and other devices allowing for easy scheduling of photography from most mobile devices. Our email system can determine whether you are using a PC or mobile device, thus links in emails from us will navigate to a mobile ready app if touched when using a cellphone. In fact, navigating to www.real-connect.com from a mobile device will detect your device and open a simple login form to access your listings when away from a PC.
Included with the App is a list of your active listings that can be used with QR Codes to display a mobile ready property website of each listing. To view how your listings show on a mobile device, click below and login with your MLS Public ID and password you use when accessing our system.
Selecting Photos for HAR Uploads – because we understand that time can be of essence, you can “pass off” the initial photo selection to our office and later change what was uploaded when you are at a PC. The photo selection routines will not work with mobile devices.
When Real Connect photographs your listing in a Lake Conroe subdivision, it will be advertised as a “Featured Home For Sale” and plotted on their Google Map as well. When visitors click the property, they will be directed to the property website created for your listing.
This feature became available because of a new design and focus the developer of http://www.lakeconroe.com/ started at the beginning of 2012.

Our server host for this website had a major outage yesterday. Several million other websites were down as well. Thankfully, this happened on a Sunday, the day of rest. I only once had a 24 hour plus outage when I hosted from my own servers and that was in the “rookie” years. Sure didn’t expect this from a company that hosts about 12 million websites.
