Since we launched Development Progress, we've been working on improving the functionality as per our clients' requests. We'll be writing a few blog posts about the new features to get you familiar with how to optimize Development Progress as a communication platform to your current and potential clients.
Posting Development Progress updates to your social media accounts
Social media is an effective way to communicate with a growing audience. Smart phones make consuming information easier, and the best platforms to reach people who are wanting to engage with you from their mobile phones is via established social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
Setting up accounts for your company, and even for specific developments is easy enough, but curating regular, interesting and relevant content can be time-consuming. Our strategy behind Development Progress is to make communication easy. The value of keeping your clients and potential clients informed on the progress of each development is huge, but that doesn't mean that it has to be time-consuming or difficult.
We now allow you to post your published updates to your Facebook and Twitter accounts with the simple click of your mouse. This feature is for updates that have been approved and placed live on HelloHouse.
To do this, follow these simple steps:
- Login to your PropertyEngine account
- In your Progress list view, click 'tweet' or 'share' under the social column. A new frame will load with the title of your update and a link.
- If you are sharing on Facebook, make sure you have selected the correct page to share to.
- Click send/share
It's good to get into habit of sharing each update as this is an effective way to grow your subscribed audience.
