There’s no denying we live in a digital world. Even snail mail now tells you to go online for more research or information on a new product. If readership of the New York Times is now down 4.51%, how well do you think your local paper’s doing? According to The Real Estate Bloggers, Advertising in the newspapers does not make sense. Several major USA newspapers have lost readership in the past year, alone. Our digital age is turning the newspaper classifieds into a thing of the past. Don’t waste your money and effort advertising a real estate listing in the dying newspapers. Instead, utilize your best effort and effectively target your audience using TourVista.

click on the Share tab
mouseover the “Social networks and bookmarking sites” button and click on Facebook
Facebook will open in a new window and pre-populate a Profile post for your Wall that includes:
a link to your virtual tour website
the property address, type and description
a thumbnail image – select a different image using the little arrow buttons
Add a personal note at the top if you’d like and click the Share button to update your Wall and your friend’s News Feeds.
Note: you have the option of “Send a Message” that will email your TourVista link to select friends directly from Facebook. We recommend using the Wall method described above because it allows visibility to all of your friends (present and future) and will generate more traffic for you. In this sense, the Wall post is less invasive on your friends and more permanent for your online marketing.
