On Absence and Fonder Hearts For those who might have wondered where our newsletters have gone, here’s the bittersweet truth. The ShowMojo creative team has been on a Lewis-and-Clark-like escapade unearthing and cataloging ever more content for KnowMojo, the one-stop-shop for…
If you exclusively do in-person showings, we love you. You ARE the majority of our user base. But (sorry) this isn’t the newsletter for you. Credit Card or Drivers License? Let the Prospect Decide Some prospective renters prefer to validate…
Do You Use PropertyBoss? Then ShowMojo is about to make your business a little more magical. What else is there to say? Well, perhaps an awe-inducing recap on the benefits of ShowMojo’s Listing Import Functionality. And an invitation to join…
And this ain’t no silly Christmas card neither. So don’t click “spam” just yet. Announcing Customer Knowledge Mojo ShowMojo’s new Customer Knowledge Base is nearly 100 articles and growing daily. Finally. And that’s even our first thought too. This is the…
Remember that Call Center Closed Beta that we’ve got running at a slow boil? Well, one of the most common prospect phone inquiries is “what’s the security deposit?” It’s not that ShowMojo didn’t already have functionality to track and display security deposits…
Leasing automation needs to be as effortless as possible. You shouldn’t have to mallet prospects down your funnel, needle-nose them through the narrow end, tease out and discard the prickly ones, nor descale and regularly grease the entire chute. That’s…
No, We Are Not That Scary Lockbox Company We are fresh off a world-wind tradeshow tour and wow, do we have an image glitch. We hid the CodeBoxes behind the booth — even snuck out to the beach at 2am…
When we first set out to build ShowMojo, we had a very ambitious mantra: Make the residential leasing process not suck – even for renters. Ah, the good old days of being a feisty, brash startup. (At least we’re not…
Multi-User Scheduling Is Hard No, not like Barbie in math class hard. Heck, even explaining why multi-user scheduling is hard is hard. Consider all the possibilities of group showings, clustered individual showings, one-showtime-per-day-per-listing, one-show-window-per-day-per-listing, one-showtime-per-day-per-location, and arbitrary-showtimes-per-week. Dash with tenant…
Some Old Business For starters, a big mea culpa. We never announced that Rent Manager Listing Import graduated from the Beta Feature Club. We’d like to have a good excuse for that — we really would — but we don’t.…
Perhaps we should be apologetic for our part in the upcoming Robot Revolution. But, wow, sometimes there’s things that robots just do better, saving us humans both our time and our sanity in the process. Like automatically fielding the inevitable “I’ll be five minutes…
Text-to-Access Works Without a Listing Text-to-Access lets your staff and even vendors gain immediate and trackable access to any property with a CodeBox hung on it. Property Managers sometimes put CodeBoxes on houses for vendors and their staff before the…
Let’s Dig In Pre-showing questionnaires now work with screening question restrictors. The pre-showing questionnaire feature lets you take a quick showing over the phone. Then ShowMojo does the heavy lifting by following up with each prospect to get answers to your…
A showing surge most often strikes property managers who pride themselves on individual, in-person showings.
One sure (albeit obnoxious) sign of success is phishing emails. Some ShowMojo customers have reported receiving emails with the subject line “ShowMojo Account Upgrade” earlier this week.
In last week’s newsletter we promised that next-up would be some other uber-complicated, paradigm-defying,
Bad news for all of you who prefer your feature updates to come with four different setting-screen updates, two separate account check-in sessions,
Do you augment your full-time leasing staff with outside agents? Do you let your full-time agents pick up showings for other agents’ listings in their spare time?
Alas Postlets. No one could have predicted its sudden demise. Even Zillow seems uncharacteristically mum on the details. Not saying there was anything untoward — just saying.
Then announced the worst-kept secret since Apple Watch (read: CodeBox). Hey, when there’s another company out there slinging mud at a product you haven’t even announced yet,
Yes, it’s another ShowMojo blog-post that has nothing to do with scheduling. Nor marketing. Nor even prospect nurturing.
Well, uh, you see, when we first rolled out ShowMojo PHONE it was more of a fling.
Let’s be clear about something. We’d prefer that no ShowMojo account pays commission to outside agents.
As most educated citizens know, the Friday before a major holiday is reserved for announcements that corporations and
Do you remember the young upstart Google that we loved? The Google that got us excited about the web
Yes, we did almost blow up the garage. But first, some house-keeping. Our Screening Question Restrictors are out of beta.
Sorry for being gone so long. We’ve been ridiculously busy working on stuff that is as critical as it is mind-numbingly mundane.
This afternoon we switched on Showing Feedback Surveys for all accounts!!
Well, that subject line doesn’t easily roll off the tongue.
It wasn’t enough that Watermarking can now be set to a variety of options, including your
This blog post isn’t about any ordinary cancelled showing — ShowMojo already emails you
Yes, we know. ShowMojo has spent years slaying the evil dragons of phone-tag and email-chain-hell
Did you know that, at 10 cents a message, it’s cheaper for NASA to communicate with the Hubble Telescope
Who posts to a blog on Friday afternoon in the middle of summer? Someone with a feature too good to wait until Monday.
NOTE: This stuff is complicated — and there’s no way around that. Don’t try to read while driving between showings.
This week we are announcing a couple great new updates to our screening questions.
Some people just love to pick up the phone — just as much as Craigslist hates the hyperlink.
We’re thrilled to announce a whole new service that we have added to ShowMojo
Buckle up, because we’ve got a bundle of new productivity-boosting features to talk about today.
You’ve got business-critical software that already contains all your listing information and updates.
We’re hard at work here at ShowMojo on some big new features. These aren’t them. Instead,
There are so many places your listing data needs to go, you shouldn’t have to enter it over and over again.
We have added two new game-changing features to ShowMojo.
We know that’s not a good excuse. But it was worth it…. Really.
