The Latest in MoxiMarketing: Facebook Audience Network

By Tiana Baur, Marketing Manager

MoxiWorksLet’s talk MoxiMarketing and Facebook Audience Network. What they are, what they do, and why they matter to your business.

MoxiMarketing

MoxiMarketing, the ever-growing marketing arm of the MoxiCloud, includes digital marketing tools for agents at no added cost to our client brokerage. The heart of MoxiMarketing is Promote, an integrated advertising tool that makes marketing simple for busy agents. Promote has various options for both agents, and at the brokerage level. 

Promote for agents

Promote gives agents the ability to engage in easy-to-use digital marketing via their existing MoxiWorks account. This leading advertising tool enables agents to promote their listings or their business, in three easy steps, typically taking less than five minutes to complete.

Essentially, we wanted to take the pain out of online advertising for real estate agents, so we built a tool that lives within the technology they use every single day – a ‘one stop shop’ for their advertising needs if you will. They can create eye-catching ads in mere minutes to promote things like open houses, just listed, just sold, and more.

Promote for brokerages

We know that brokerages are constantly looking for new, innovative ways to support their agents, specifically their listings. Promote for brokerages now has a co-marketing tool for brokerages to boost their recruiting and retention efforts, without adding more work on for their services members.

With co-marketing, brokerages can spread their brand further. They simply select a budget and parameters, and cover part of the ad cost for their agents’ listings. For example, they can pick up the tab for 20% of the spend on all listing ads. Every time one of their agents opts to promote their new listing, they then cover 20% of the cost. Brokerages can choose to set one listing ad per agent for the month or for a set duration. They’ll soon even be able to select certain offices, price points, or specific agents to whom you’d like to extend more support. Basically, the power stays with them!

Plus, coming soon are Automated Listing Ads, which lets you automate all of your brokerages ads, pick your own price, and increase your brand awareness in just a few steps. Automated Listing Ads give your brokerage the ability to promote your business, brand, and of course, your listings independently from your agents – quickly, easily, and all without extra staff time.

Facebook Audience Network

This is the latest addition to Promote. The Facebook Audience Network is exactly what it sounds like, a giant network of hundreds of websites that ads push to. Here’s a short list of some of the websites included:

  • Men’s Health
  • Business Insider
  • CBS
  • Food Network
  • Cnet
  • New York Post
  • HGTV
  • Nasdaq
  • Fox News
  • 247Sports
  • TV Guide
  • Complex
  • CBS News
  • New York Times
  • Forbes
  • Vice News
  • Accuweather
  • Golf Digest
  • Vogue
  • WebMD
  • NFL
  • Huffington Post

Now when an agent or brokerage uses Promote, the ads automatically go to Facebook, Instagram, and the Facebook Audience Network, expanding their reach, getting more eyes on their brand and listings, and of course, wowing more clients along the way.

Interested in getting this powerful tool for your agents and/or your brokerage? Fill out the form on this page (which takes less than a minute!) and we’ll be in touch shortly after.

MoxiWorks Donates $25,000 to Pike Place Market Foundation

SEATTLE, March 19, 2019 – MoxiWorks, a Seattle-based real estate technology company, is proud to announce its continued relationship with the Pike Place Market Foundation, donating $25,000 in their latest contribution from the Moxi Fund.

York Baur, CEO of MoxiWorks said, “One of the aspects of why we support the Pike Place Market Foundation is the concept of ‘think globally act locally.’ The Moxi Fund is not only about helping housing-related causes, it’s about making the community with which we live and work a better place. Because we’re located a short walk from the Pike Place Market, the Foundation seemed the perfect place to tie these aspects together.”

The Pike Place Market Foundation provides healthcare, housing, healthy food, and childcare to those who need it the most amongst Seattle communities. As a beacon of hope for many, the Pike Place Market Foundation is guided by the following values: collaboration, inclusion, respect, optimism and gratitude. Over the years they have helped many, granting more than $30 million since 1982.

For many at MoxiWorks, the Market holds a special place in their hearts. Jessie Trapp, Marketing Coordinator at MoxiWorks, is a perfect example. Growing up with a mom that works at the market on the craft line, Jessie took her first steps there and has many fond childhood memories there.

“It is important for MoxiWorks to have this partnership with the Pike Place Market Foundation because they do such a wonderful job connecting and bettering the community around us. Both MoxiWorks and the Pike Place Market Foundation’s vision is to better our community through our services. By supporting each other, we are working to fulfill those visions together and I think that is a beautiful thing and I am so excited and honored to get to be a part of,” said Zoey Lange, Office Manager at MoxiWorks.

MoxiWorks raises money through various company activities, including employees opting into having a portion of each paycheck go towards the Moxi Fund. As a yearly tradition since 2013, MoxiWorks employees also partner with the Pike Place Market Foundation to put up Moxi Giving Trees in our office to give local families what they need most during the holiday season. These Giving Trees help serve between 20 and 30 families every year.

Baur added, “Everyone knows the market as this amazing Seattle institution and tourism center, but what they don’t realize is that it’s also a hub for community service – from preschool to eldercare and everything in-between. We’re honored to be a small part of their big mission.”

To date, MoxiWorks has donated a total of $74,000 to the Pike Place Market Foundation and is looking forward to continuing this partnership in the years to come. Aside from donations, MoxiWorks is also passionate about volunteering their time, specifically at the Pike Market Food Bank.

About Pike Place Market Foundation
Established in 1982, the Pike Place Market Foundation has granted more than $30 Million to provide housing, healthcare, healthy food, childcare and a community of support to our most vulnerable neighbors. As community builders in the Market we partner with, as well as operate and sustain, a network of programs and services that support low-income residents, workers, families and neighbors of the Market. Find more information at pikeplacemarketfoundation.org.

By Bryn Yasui, Customer Support Specialist at MoxiWorks

Daniel BaileyAt the MoxiWorks headquarters in Downtown Seattle, you can always catch Daniel Bailey on the phone with a client giving his all to help their agents with what we have to offer them. In his role, Daniel demonstrates outstanding communication skills to brokerage partners every single day. With our employees, like Daniel and his hardworking team of Account Managers, agents are able to utilize MoxiWorks’ products as smoothly and painless as possible through training, answering queries, and creating business relationships.

It goes without saying that every single individual here at MoxiWorks is unique in their own way. We decided to take a moment to dive deeper into Daniel’s charismatic nature, who he is, and how his personality correlates with his ambitious work ethic.

1. How long have you been at MoxiWorks?

6 Years this summer.

2. What do you do at MoxiWorks?

I am a Senior Account Manager!

3. What’s your favorite MoxiWorks product and why?

My favorite product in the entire suite is MoxiPresent! Simply, it helps agents win more listings. Present can do so much from Lead-gen to personal marketing. It’s a powerful tool agents can use to help themselves stand out from the crowd.

4. What’s your philosophy in life?

“If you are not first, you’re last!” I’m kidding, “Above all things, be sure to laugh.”

5. Where are you from originally?

Charlotte, North Carolina

6. What’s your favorite movie?

Pulp Fiction

7. What’s your favorite thing about MoxiWorks?

I would have to say the people I work with. They are some of the most intelligent and dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We have built a great culture and it’s one of the reasons I love coming to work every day!

8. What’s the best part of your job?

Being able to help our brokerage partners solve some of their pain points by leveraging our products and services. I find the most fulfillment when agents tell me how much their business has improved or when they have the “aha!” moment and realize this stuff actually works!

9. What is your greatest accomplishment so far at MoxiWorks?

Helping one of our brokerages see a 316% increase in agent productivity! That doesn’t happen by accident. That happens through strong partnership, setting goals, & and executing to perfection.

10. Would you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?

I’m an extrovert. I like to live out loud and try to make everyone I meet smile or laugh.

11. What keeps you at this company?

The team I work with & clients I serve. Each day I’m challenged to think more strategically to help our clients solve their pain points. There’s never a dull moment.

12. What are your biggest pet peeves?

That’s tough because I have a few. The biggest I would say is when someone begins to tell you something then they say… “I’ll tell you later.” UGH!

13. What’s your favorite past time activity?

Spending time with children.

14. What was your first job ever?

My first job was flipping burgers at a local burger joint, “Herfy’s Hamburgers.”

15. What piqued your interest about MoxiWorks in the first place?

It was the job posting that drew me to want to work for MoxiWorks. The posting was so funny I laughed audibly while reading it. Then when I had my first phone interview, I was sold! The hiring manager and I must have talked and laughed for nearly an hour.

16. What is your favorite food?

Asian food! Hands down. I’m from the South, the home of good food, but give me some General Tso’s any day of the week!

17. What does your ideal day off look like?

Errands, errands, and more errands. I start off making my way to grocery store, then cooking a big breakfast for the family, then working on some project at my house or tinkering with one of my cars.

18. How would you describe your work ethic?

I work very hard. Often, I’m told too hard. My goal is to exceed my client’s expectations by giving more in value than I expect in payment. That value is my time, attention, & responsiveness. It is that client experience that keeps them with us year over year.

19. How do you think technology has developed a role in real estate within the past decade?

Over the last decade, technology has completely changed real estate. In years to come, technology will touch every part of a real estate transaction. One thing that will not change is the human element. Contrary to popular belief, real estate is still a people business, and people still need an agent to help them through the transaction experience. You bet your bottom dollar that MoxiWorks will be there to power the agent to do so!

20. What is your biggest challenge at the moment?

My biggest challenge at the moment is to decide what to get my 16-year-old for his birthday. Any suggestions?

Email Marketing Tips for Real Estate Agents

By Jessie Trapp, Marketing Coordinator

email marketing tips for real estate agentsA whopping 54% of marketers name increasing engagement rates as their top email marketing priority, and for good reason. While email marketing has proven to be a powerful strategy for connecting to those within your sphere of influence, here’s the catch: it only works wonders if you manage to get your contacts to open your emails in the first place, a task that most find to be much easier said than done.

Here are five engagement-generating email marketing tips for real estate agents to consider when crafting campaigns:

Valuable.

Irrelevant emails are an easy ticket into your client’s spam folder or even worse – an unsubscribe list. In order for your emails to be effective, make them truly valuable to those on the receiving end. Include call-to-actions and provide intriguing content that will make your clients see merit in opening your mail on a consistent basis.

Quick & to the point.

People are busy and don’t have loads of time to spend reading through emails that resemble a lengthy novel. Make sure to limit your email content to just the information your clients need to know, while keeping the amount of “fluff” and filler content to a minimum.

Scannable.

Not only do you want to keep your emails as short as possible, but you also want to make them easy to read on the go. Formatting your email copy into lists, bullets, and changing the color of especially important information makes it more likely that readers will read through your content and absorb the information you need them to know the most.

Cadence.

Although finding your email marketing rhythm can take some trial and error, it’s often smart to set some sort of cadence to your emails.

Do you send out a real estate blog post every Monday? Or maybe a schedule of local events on the first of every month? Regardless of the exact rhythm, giving your clients something to expect on a regular basis can make them more likely to open these emails when they receive them.

Segment.

In order to stand out amongst the outrageous amount of emails your clients are likely receiving, put the effort into making your emails as personalized as possible, while remaining efficient. In order to achieve this, consider grouping your database based on individuals with similar interests, zip codes, or customer type so that you can tailor the content and subject lines of your emails towards a more targeted audience.

If you’re anything like us, you’re completely ecstatic about the new email campaigns features within MoxiEngage. Utilizing these five best practices will help set yourself up for success with the new functionality. Can’t wait to get started with email campaigns? No need to wait –  get started now.

20 Questions: A Moxian That Hustles Hard

MoxiWorks20 Questions with Alex Jacobs, Director of Business Development at MoxiWorks

Ever heard of the quote, “work hard in silence, let your success be your noise,” by Frank Ocean? Well, that completely and utterly captures Alex. He’s quiet, humble, and polite – and it just so happens that he also happens to be a total Rockstar. When it comes to growing MoxiWorks, helping clients, and hitting goals, you better believe he knocks it out of the park every single time.

For obvious reasons, we wanted to get to know him a little bit better, especially since he lives in California (Moxi is based in Seattle). So, without further ado, here goes 20 questions with Alex Jacobs:

1. How long have you been at MoxiWorks?

Almost two years.

2. What is your life motto?

It’s changed over the years. I actually really like (and it’s sitting on my desk) “what got you here won’t get you there.”

Edit: This is the quote that stands above the door of our CEO. A great reminder for all of us at Moxi!

3. Where is your favorite beach?

I would have to say Hāpuna Beach Park in Hawaii.

4. What would you eat for your last meal?

Sushi – as much as I can have!

5. Who was your favorite character growing up?

Rocky – the underdog.

6. What’s your favorite thing about MoxiWorks?

The people. The team and the people here are really great to work with! I like the vision of the company as well.

7. What is something small that people do that makes you happy?

When someone pays me a compliment.

Edit: Alex – you amaze us! Moxi would be nothing without you.

8. How would you describe yourself to someone in one sentence?

I think if I were to describe myself, I would say that I always tend to be conscious of other people and try to put myself in their shoes. I want to make sure that other people are happy before my own happiness.

9. If you could have a drink with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?

My father.

10. What keeps you at MoxiWorks?

Again, I think it’s really the leadership and the vision of the company and the direction that we’re heading. Getting a chance to help to make a difference in the real estate industry is a plus.

11. What is your favorite thing about the holidays?

I like the family time, but I also just like the spirit of the season and everyone being in a happy, friendly mood.

12. What would you say is your hidden talent and why?

I think I could say one of my hidden talents is that I can be very analytical and tend to look ahead like three or four steps ahead.

13. What was your first job?

I cleaned my mom’s office once a week. After that I worked for store that sold sunglasses.

14. What interested you about MoxiWorks in the first place?

I think what drew me was the vision and the innovation.

15. What do you do when you’re not working?

Whatever my kids want to do.

16. Did you choose this career path, or did it choose you?

I think it kind of chose me. I think it’s because one of my first jobs was in sales and every job I got after that was in some sort of selling environment. My degree was business administration, with a concentration in marketing so my mind was always attracted to that side of it.

17. Where do you live and what’s your favorite thing about it?

I live in Folsom, California and I love the community feel. I also really love that it is a great place to raise a family.

18. What is your definition of success?

I think success can be measured in a lot of different ways depending on what your goals are. From helping my clients achieve their goals, to helping my kids achieve theirs and even achieving my own family goals. That’s success to me.

19. Where is the next spot on your bucket list?

Europe in general.

20. What is your favorite MoxiWorks product to talk about and why?

I love talking about MoxiEngage because it’s really core to an agent’s business. And when they’re using it, it can really help them achieve success in their business – 54% more business in fact.

Southern California Brokerage, The Address, Partners with MoxiWorks for Agent Tech

SEATTLE, March 11, 2019 – Southern California real estate powerhouse, The Address, announced their new partnership with MoxiWorks, a leading real estate technology company, to provide a robust open platform to their agents.

Real Estate Resolutions: Checking up on Your Goals

By Jessie Trapp, Marketing Coordinator 

 

MoxiWorks

Is it just us, or did the entire month of February feel like it lasted a total of one, single hour?

The first quarter of 2019 has been a whirlwind, and its upcoming conclusion means it’s time to check in on your progress towards the goals and real estate resolutions you set for yourself at the start of the new year.

Are you where you need to be to bring your goals to fruition this year? If not, what in your workflow needs to be adjusted now to get you there in December?

Here’s a refresher on best practices for positioning yourself to crush your goals as you head into Q2:

 

Prioritize.

“The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’… Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time.” – Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook

It’s easy to get so caught up in your busy day-to-day life of being a real estate agent that you forget to prioritize the tasks that will actually enable you to reach your goals. It’s important to be mindful about what activities you put at the very top of your to-do list, and to acknowledge which tasks can be left until later on if needed.

 

Use your tools.

“Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.” – Peter Drucker

Take the edge off of your bustling schedule by utilizing tools to atomize the small, tedious tasks that are taking up precious time that could be better allocated elsewhere. Any technology tool that allow you to automate aspects of your workflow such as marketing efforts, client communication, or ad creation will help free up more time for you to focus on the activities that require more time and effort. Efficiency is the key to boosting your productivity and ultimately – your profitability.

 

Stay ahead of the game.

“For me life is continually being hungry. The meaning of life is not to simply exist, to survive, but to move ahead, go up, to achieve, to conquer.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Rushed work is often messy work, so instead of waiting until the last minute to complete an important task, utilize any free time you have now to knock it out ahead of schedule. The extra time will allow you to be thoughtful and ensure that you’re producing the quality of work needed to bring your resolutions to life and move your real estate business forward.

 

Be creative.

“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been.” – Alan Alda

Sometimes our pre-made roadmap to reaching our goals proves to be less effective than originally expected, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel and give up. Instead, take time to think outside the box and brainstorm unconventional ways to go about reaching your goals. Not only will it be an opportunity for you to switch it up and try new things, but it may even help you stand out to the people and clients who matter the most.

 

We have an exciting season ahead, and it’s up to you to take advantage of it and to accelerate yourself towards your goals. Want more tips on how to use your Moxi tools to reach your goals? We have tons. Check them out here.

MoxiWorks Reveals Competitive Offer to Contactually, Opts to Be Forever Platform

SEATTLE, March 5, 2019 – MoxiWorks, a leading real estate technology company, has announced their competitive offer to real estate CRM Contactually, who was recently acquired by Compass, a main competitor to brokerages across the nation. On the heels of this news, MoxiWorks vows to help brokerages get onto a new platform now, specifically cutting all major licensing fees to bridge the transition period.

“How many tools have brokerages bought that ultimately get sold to their competitor?” said York Baur, CEO of MoxiWorks. “That stops now. Brokerages need to be on an open platform that allows them unlimited flexibility; they need something that they control. It’s not an open platform if the data disappears when they get rid of the product. With the MoxiCloud, the data is still available to all tools regardless of which products are chosen or thrown out. It can truly be their forever platform.” MoxiWorks’ customer retention over the past seven years stands proudly at 96%.

MoxiWorks not only consists of their CRM, MoxiEngage, but also an interactive CMA tool called MoxiPresent, brokerage intranet called MoxiHub, MoxiWebsites, MoxiMarketing ads suite, and MoxiTalent, a powerful recruiting system. While MoxiWorks is on a mission to build best-of-breed products for all of their respective areas, they understand not all of their products will align with exactly what a given brokerage may currently need. This is why with their open platform, the MoxiCloud, brokerages can enjoy a truly open experience, accommodating their existing and future tech stack needs.

“We’ve been very open about the fact that we don’t require brokerages to have all of our products. If a specific tool no longer fits your needs, we will remove it and replace it with the tool of your choice,” said Georgia Perez, VP of Business Development and Product Evangelism. “It’s this flexibility that no one else offers on the market. Pick a platform that’s going to be with you for the long haul.”

Contactually and the MoxiCloud share a few integrated partners, such as RealScout, who also is offering a special MoxiWorks discount for brokerages within the RealScout network. This way, brokerages will be able to keep what they love about RealScout and move onto a more dependable CRM, MoxiEngage. The MoxiCloud consists of over 50 other partners, such as Buyside, MoveEasy, DocuSign, QuantumDigital, Imprev, and many more.

Baur noted that Compass, Contactually’s new owner, hasn’t been shy about using their technology to recruit agents from their competitors saying, “While this is great news for Contactually and we commend them on a job well done, make no mistake about it – history shows that Compass has every intention to keep their technology for their own agents and will likely use their soon-to-be stronger CRM instance to recruit your agents with it.”

As it relates to easing fears over MoxiWorks’ future, Perez said, “MoxiWorks is built by brokers and run for brokers. Our commitment to you is not only to make this transition as painless as humanly possible for you, but that MoxiWorks will continue to operate as is for years and years to come.
