Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Do You Bojo? Another FREE Marketing Solution

Do You Bojo? Another FREE Marketing Solution

Do you use Bojo? Have you ever heard of Bojo?  Are you wondering what kind of name like BOJO could possibly help me market myself?

I had heard of Bojo before, but never saw it implemented before, until today. I taught my Internet Presence and Converting Cyberleads class this morning, and I had to email one of the students in the class some information.

She responded back with a Bojo in her signature.  I immediately went to the sight to set up the FREE Bojo account.

I tried to copy and paste the HTML code here, but I couldn't get it to work, so the above it just a graphic. If you would like to see it actually working, send me an email, donna@donnahomes.com, and I'll respond back with it in my signature.

Another cool feature with the Bojo is the Text Messaging option. I sent myself a test text.  Not only did I receive the text, but I received an email with the text message in it, the person's name, phone number, the message, and everything entered, and I also received an email that confirmed I received the text when I opened it.

Now that I've seen it in action, I wish I had signed up for Bojo a whlie ago. There are a couple of paid versions where you can actually track your stats.  If I can see some interest in the FREE version, I'll probably upgrade in the future.

And, there are many templates for other industries. This is not real estate specific.

What do you think?  Would you Bojo?

I did the same thing that you did and copied it from someone as soon as I saw it. I have to say that I am not totally sure about it. I 've had it for a few weeks and I tend to think that it is too busy. I'll give it some more time.

Donna - I did receive a couple of email with the BOJO signature but never thought about it, I guess now I'll have to check into it, Thanks!

I'm going to BoJo right now and see what it is all about. I logged in to EMailIdeas.com a long time ago and forgot all about it! I guess it is time to check that out too. Thanks

Stacey-Ann, It doen't hurt to try it when it's FREE!

Gail, Let us know some results, especially with the texting.

Maria, Glad I could make you think outside the box.

Mott, Check your email.

Heather, You're welcome!

Caron, Free doesn't hurt!

Tom, And they've tested it with SPAM filters and apparently it always gets through!

I just did it too and we'll see how it works.  I did send myself a test text and it went through both as a text and then a follow-up email.  I'll use it for awhile and see what happens.  The paid version seems a little high to me, but then again if it brings in any business I might just change my mind.  Thanks for the heads up.

Hi Donna... wow, something new that I had not heard of!  I will definitely check this out!  Thanks for sharing! Yay!  :)

Posted by Steve Shatsky almost 10 years ago

Geri, That's what I thought about the costs, but if you divide it out monthly, it's not too bad.

Steve, No problem!

I love trying new things out.  I'll take a look.

Hi Donna, well wow first time you bring something up and I know about it! wow this is a first! I will definately Bojo! love a good email signature, just dont want to pay to much money for it, and if I remembered correctly it was a bit expensive isnt it? By the way thanks for re-directing my posts earlier today I am still learning! I need a Donna class... : -)

Posted by Jesse Vasquez, "APPROVED” (Graystone Mortgage LLC) almost 10 years ago

Kay, Have fun with it.

Elizabeth, I'm sure your folder is as bulging as mine!

Jesse, But you didn't implement!! ;)  You've gotten more of a Donna class than these people are getting in my class. Just implement half of what we've talked about and you'll be far far ahead of most people.

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) almost 10 years ago

FREE, you say? I think I will Bojo. I'll check it out tomorrow...gotta hit the sack now. Thanks for sharing this cool tip!

Donna,

Thanks for the tip, looks very interesting and promising, I will check it out.

Posted by Richard Weeks, REALTOR®, Broker almost 10 years ago

Dfinately sounds like something I would be interested in!  Also when do you teach your Internet Presence and Converting Cyberleads class?  Im only a hop skip and a jump away and would be interested in attending!  :) 

Posted by Tara Campbell, Broker/Owner, GRI, CDPE (RE/MAX Family) almost 10 years ago

I BOJO! It's very professional looking, customizable and if you don't mind the BOJO logo, it can be free too!

Posted by Craig Rutman, Raleigh, Cary, Apex area Realtor (Helping people in transition) almost 10 years ago

Donna..looks great I will have to put this on my things to do list...I will email you..:0)Thx

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) almost 10 years ago

Kim, Yep, I definitely said FREE!

Richard, You're welcome.

Tara, I've been asked to teach one more in Dallas (next Wednesday, March 11 at 9:30-11:30) and you're more than welcome to come.  Otherwise, I'll start classed in Austin in April.

Craig, I don't even notice the logo.

Hannah, No need to email anymore as the active version is a few comments up.

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) almost 10 years ago

Donna,

I have a friend that has used it for awhile.  She likes it as well.  I have kept saying I was going to go BOJO but I haven't done it yet.  It is still on the action plan.  Hopefully, your post will motivate me.  Thanks for sharing.

I saw this a few months ago and it wasn't free that's for sure. I thought it was a great idea and then I just let it slide ..... don't know why.  Will check it out again.

Posted by Lyn Sims, Schaumburg IL Real Estate (RE/MAX Suburban) almost 10 years ago

Cindy, FREE can motivate a lot of people!  Get going...

Lyn,  That's interesting that it wasn't free previously. Maybe they're doing it free for a period to get people hooked and then taking the free away.  Either way, it's free for now, and if they take that part away, they should know I would only pay if I see results while it's free. Sounds fair to me!

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) almost 10 years ago

Very cool tool - anything that encourages more interaction is good by me. I'll check it out.

Posted by Rich Rogala, Real Estate Marketing Coach (Consistent Clients) almost 10 years ago

I tired this & I like it EXCEPT that if I email someone with a Blackberry, the email looks like spam to them!  Has anyone else come across the same thing?  Is there away around it?

Hi Donna - I like the graphic look better than just a list of links at the end of our signatures. My guess is that the tabs get more clickthroughs than a text link.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) almost 10 years ago

Rich, I've gotten a couple of emails saying how cool people think it looks.  No "hot buyers" from it, but it's getting noticed.

Julie, Their website said it was testing by the largest spam systems and they have passed, so you might want to shoot them a message to find out. I don't know anyone who actually has a blackberry to see what it looks like.

John, Probably, yes, so I have the web links going directly to my search buttons on my website, though it kept trying to put in default remax links.

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) almost 10 years ago

Pretty cool.  I think I shall get me one.

Adam, It is cool!  It takes less than 5 minutes to set up.

Donna - I tried this but was having a hard time putting it on my outlook email.  I'll try again, but thought it was pretty cool.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 http://TexasLoanGuy.com) almost 10 years ago

John, I have Outlook 2002, and that wasn't one of their choices, so I had to do it where you save it to your actual computer and then hit Control E to insert it into an email.

Hey, Donna. I love the look. Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have a great week, Jim
