According to The Canadian Real Estate Association, these are the ways that DDF® benefits Real Estate Professionals:
- More exposure for listings
- Easily display listings on specialty and social media sites
- Ability to keep listings, wherever they appear, consistent, accurate and up-to-date
- The ability to choose and customize where listings appear across multiple sites
- Viewing statistics so that the effectiveness of internet marketing strategies can be assessed
Your Customers Added Value:
DDF® Feeds not only will save you time and energy, but it will also give your Business yet another unique selling point when approaching prospective customers. You can now guarantee to clients that their listing will be live on numerous social media channels and 3rd party websites almost immediately, reaching thousands if not tens of thousands of people within the first 24 hours. If packaged correctly, DDF® would serve as an excellent added-value feature to your business.
It’s better than IDX
Internet Data Exchange (IDX) and Reciprocity are commonplace terms and functions in the business of Canadian real estate. They facilitate the sharing of your listings with other real estate agents from your local Real Estate Board. DDF® is very much the same – when you or your brokerage opt-in to DDF®, you’re are basically signing a reciprocity agreement with every other brokerage across the country who has done the same. This drops all of those brokerage listings into the National Shared Pool of listings, accessible by all participants.
The real benefit being that many of the IDX solutions out there are just framed into your website or are being displayed from another URL removing all Search Engine benefit for your website.
CanAgent Pro can increase your web traffic many times over.
Because with DDF® your listings are contained within your website and because that content is constantly changing, the resultant effect that has on Search Engine Optimization is staggering. Many providers of listings don’t actually index the listing content on your domain but on their domain and supply you the visuals. CanAgent Pro ensures all that content is to YOUR benefit not ours.
