Introducing our new and improved Mailchimp integration

By Russ Duncan on Apr 25, 2019

Too many times have I heard the story about the one "tech savvy" broker or the transaction coordinator who gets tasked with exporting contacts from the CRM and importing them into Mailchimp to send a new email campaign.

If you're that person, then you know the steps involved. And moreover, you know just how inefficient that process is.

There's no reason to do it that way. You don't need two different tools to store your contacts and then email them.

We recently enhanced our existing Mailchimp integration so you can effortlessly send marketing emails straight from your CRM, where you already keep everything organized. (And of course, we have similar integrations with other email providers as well.)

Sounds nice, right? Here’s a little more about why we did it and how it works.

NEW: Make a website straight from your CRM, complete with lead capture form

By The Apto Team on Apr 18, 2019

For many brokers, creating marketing materials for a property is a frustrating ordeal.

Even if you have the technology in place to create websites and brochures, you’re often entering details over and over, wondering if you missed something, or fiddling with the formatting. Then once the site is out there, you’re left sifting through unqualified leads.

And what about those off-market deals that you know you can sell, but don’t necessarily have the budget for materials that can help showcase the property?

You don’t have time or resources for all that. You need a professional website that’s easy to create, that’s built from the system you already have in place, with a centralized hub to organize and follow up with the leads that you reach out to or that come in on their own.

Well, we’ve got good news. We just launched Apto Property Sites, our latest product feature designed to help you work your deals more efficiently.

Meet the new Apto

By The Apto Team on Aug 14, 2018

APTO_Deals Mock-up-2-webOne year ago this month, we released a product that was the culmination of hundreds of conversations and emails with brokers of all specialties across the country.

It was the first step toward our new product vision. We knew that we’d come a long way in helping introduce the concept of CRM (beyond paper and Excel, that is) to commercial real estate. But it was time to move past that. We had CRM for brokers down pat: in Apto, your data is organized the way you think. It was time to apply that data the way you work.

Since then, we’ve released a slew of new feature sets dedicated to optimizing the broker workflow. And with the new releases that have come out this year, we’re now able to introduce our complete new product. Whether calling a previous client, finding likely buyers on a map, or working through each task related to a deal, brokers can be much more efficient as they find, win, and execute business.

Webinar: New leasing insights for better conversations (and more!)

By The Apto Team on Jul 31, 2018

APTO_Leasing Mock-up-2Finding and building relationships with tenants can take a lot of time, and with periods where you feel like you haven’t accomplished anything. Brokers from all generations know the importance of making a good impression on the first call and then keeping momentum through every subsequent interaction.

In talking to brokers, we’ve seen the many ways in which they piece together the contact, company, and lease information needed to make a good connection when they get on the phone. It usually involves 5-15 tabs on one computer screen and a good amount of prep time before the call.

If this sounds familiar, then you’re going to like what we say next: You don’t need to work this way anymore.

How to head into every conversation with more intel (without doing research)

By The Apto Team on Jun 13, 2018

Building relationships is the lifeblood of a broker. You need to know exactly who your prospects are, and more importantly, what to say to get them interested and listening to what you have to say.

To capture someone’s attention, you need to be interesting, relevant, and timely. Whether you’re following up with an old client or making a new connection, you need to offer them information of value to them, and convince them you’re an expert on your market.

We’ve grouped popular conversation starters into categories before, and now we’ve brought them into our product. Take a look now or read on for more info.
