Lead generation is one of the hottest topics in real estate. Where and how you get your leads is such popular topic that Inman News has written about it over 500 times! Plus, with new tools coming on the market everyday, agents are bombarded with the promises of more and better leads. Which is why agents end up paying thousands of dollars to portals like Zillow and Trulia – to get more leads.
Cloud Streams, on the other hand, wasn’t built for the primary purpose of lead generation. It’s a listing alert and client portal tool that helps you stay connected with clients and deliver branded, beautiful, and faster listing alerts than the big portals.
Which is why we are proud to announce that in addition to being a top listing alert and collaboration tool, Cloud Streams can now help you generate buyer leads via the new widget.
How does it work?
At no additional cost, Cloud Streams now has a widget that you can easily add to your website via a unique script. The widget prompts people to provide their email address to sign up for free listing alerts.

*Note: You may need to contact your website developer/host to get assistance in placing the script on your website, depending on your level of experience.
