“We’re excited to announce the newest addition to our family of tools! These tools help real estate investors simplify not only their job but also what is required of a potential lead. We also addressed the need for land investor by building an engaging land investor website platform.
When we blog and talk about our tools and systems, and the community remind us that staying ahead of the curve is extremely important.
Well, we took a look at the feedback and set out to create additional tools that help real estate investors optimize their efforts. Now, after lots of hard work, we’re ready to roll back the curtain on our latest offering:
New Auto-Complete Address Form Field
Fewer fields = higher conversion rate. This is especially important on mobile devices. With this idea in mind, we now have a way to get a complete and valid address from visitors using a single field!
Using Google Maps auto-complete suggestions, as visitors start typing in the address field, matching addresses will be suggested based on their location. In our tests, this can save a ton of time and hopefully increase conversion rates over requiring a visitor to manually type in their whole address.
Use this Auto-Complete Address Field Tutorial to tackle the process.
Automatic Image Optimization
Carrot rolled out our new image optimization feature! Now when images are uploaded to Carrot sites, they are:
1 – resized to a maximum of 1920px wide and 1200px tall
2 – given a lossy compression of 85%
3 – run through a lossless compression
This is a big benefit because it takes the manual step we used to put on customers of reducing the image size before uploading, helps make their sites faster, and should reduce support load due to it being a lot harder to fill up their storage space (which we may now bump up by default).
This only applies to new images that are uploaded from now forward, so give it a try and let us know if anything looks wonky.
New Narrow Landing Page Template
Addressing a request, we have added a new landing page template that is a simple, narrow centered form. This form is centered vertically and horizontally, so it plays well with a lot of different full-screen background images.
Our demo example: see the full narrow landing page image here.
Another example with a background image and copy: see the full narrow landing page with background image here.
New Land Investor Websites
Over a couple month period, we researched and tested websites in the land buyer market to create our first version of a good performing rent to own website that you as our InvestorCarrot members can access and setup in your accounts.
Return Access To Bypass Forms
Carrot forms have a feature to let your site visitors bypass a Landing Page, or Page if they have already completed the form. This is useful for requiring an opt-in to see a specific page or other content on your website. Dive into the return access to bypass forms tutorial.
Time To Test Drive
Enough of the talking, now it’s time for you to dive in and see for yourself. With Carrot, we’re providing an exceptional service and always evolving real estate platform. Just head over to our demo and take it for a spin.
