GOOMZEE INTRODUCES NEW TEXT MESSAGE MARKETING INNOVATION; INCREASES SALES OPPORTUNITIES
MISSOULA, MT May 11, 2009 – Mobile technology startup, Goomzee, introduced a new innovation to its text message marketing platform to further reduce lost sale opportunities. The new innovation, rightfully called InterAct, enables a text message chat conversation between potential buyer and seller.
During the Autumn of 2008, Goomzee introduced an innovation called Auto Responder which simulated a timely follow up from a seller. Approximately 5 minutes after a potential buyer receives information and photos on their cell phone, a personalized text message is received prompting follow up and keeping the lead “warm”. This was designed based on client testimonials of closing home sales due to timely follow up via text message. Much to Goomzee’s surprise, this feature worked so well that they recently noticed potential buyers responding to these messages and requesting access to the property or trying to schedule meetings. It didn’t take long to invent yet another first in the industry and InterAct was born.
When enabled, the InterAct feature will record additional text messages received during a specific time period and link them to the initial buyer request. The seller is alerted of the additional messages either via email, online or as a text message. This ensures they do not miss valuable requests and can convert more leads into sales. The entire history of messages and even lead status is quickly accessible within the Realty Connect management website.
“When most companies are cutting back, we know this is the time to invest into continuous innovation, making sure our solution best meets the needs of our clients and the majority of the market. We introduced over a dozen new innovations in the first quarter of this year and our industry-leading mobile marketing platform is the most thought out system in the industry,” claims Mike Sparr, Goomzee’s CEO and Founder. “Just last Tuesday we were meeting with one of the largest REALTOR organizations in America and one of their members asked whether a feature existed; it did not. It was such a great idea I challenged our engineers to include that feature in our upcoming release. The very next day they had a prototype and it was fully tested and in our next week’s release. Very few companies, of any kind, can remain that responsive to the market and maintain the discipline and stability of an enterprise-grade software engineering firm.”
Goomzee is headquartered in Missoula Montana yet benefits from a global engineering team spanning three continents. One might expect such an innovative and rapidly-growing company in the Bay Area or another metro market. For over 6 years, Goomzee has been helping connect buyers and sellers with innovative software solutions. For more information about Goomzee and their technology solutions, visit www.goomzee.com.
