Anybody out there already using Postlets? Please leave a comment about your thoughts on the site. Know of a better product we should review?

Postlets.com is a free website that allows users to create digitally pleasing "web flyers" or "postlet" of listings and also allows the user to post these flyers on to a Craigslist ad in the same form. Additionally, Postlets syndicates the postlet to 13 other websites (as of July 9, 2012). So not only have you uploaded your listing information and photos to Postlets and created the web flyer, but you have also spread that information to other websites. Interestingly, Zillow bought Postlets.com last year so you can be sure that Zillow will also be posting your listing on their site.

There are other similar services out on the Internet, but we have found Postlets to be easy to use and pretty effective. As always, SNAP recommends the most straight forward marketing plans because we know how busy you are. You can create a free account and then follow the directions to create your postlet. You will fill the blanks about your listing and then upload your photos. You will be able to review the final product and even change some of the design and colors of the postlet. Postlets will automatically send out your listing to the syndicated sites.

You can also post on Craigslist. This process is not as straight forward but is still not incredibly difficult. You can cut and paste the html code from the postlets site directly into your craigslist post. Stay tuned for a future SNAP Real Estate Photography post for a more detailed explanation. However, if you need this information now, please give us a call or send us an email and we will surely give you a personal explanation.
