New Feature! Generate Buyer Leads With Cloud Streams

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.

What will it look like on your website?
Here’s what the widget looks like on your website:

What happens after the lead clicks the button?

After they provide their email address and click “Get Listing Alerts” the widget will show the following message prompting them to go to their inbox for further instructions:

In their inbox they will receive an email invitation prompting them to sign up for listing alerts that looks like this:

They then will go through the steps to put in criteria such as location, max price, bedrooms, bathrooms, and any other listing details they want to narrow their search by.

How do you set it up?
Inside your account settings there is a new section titled, “Lead Generation”. Simply copy and paste the “Widget Script” and then place that where you want on your website.

  1. Hi Cliff, if you click Account Settings and then navigate to the Lead Generation tab, you’ll see your Widget Script URL that you can embed wherever you’d like!

  2. embed in on your site then text them the link to that page on your site thats what I would do.

  3. Hey Cliff! Great question. The new widget is part of your Cloud Streams account – so no extra cost or upgrade. You can start using it right now! 🙂

  4. I love your family story. I’m interested in joining givebackhomes, too. Thank you for planting the seed with me. Good luck to you! Hope we run into each other again. Thx, DJ djjune.com

  6. Hey Monica – Thanks for sharing! Love your website and placement of the Cloud Streams widget. 🙂

  7. The problem I had with Cloud Streams, when I set up clients on it last year…was that I Could Not Filter BACK UP, or ACTIVE UNDER CONTRACT… so instead of getting the freshest ACTIVE listings- the feed was full of properties already under contract. Clunking old MLS allows me to filter this- Has Cloud Streams been updated to only show ACTIVE?

  8. Hey Dana,

    You cannot specifically share the widget on Facebook… HOWEVER.. There are workarounds. If you create a page on your website specifically for the Cloud Streams widget you can share that link on Facebook and direct traffic to the widget specifically.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.
