BDX UNVEILS NEW ONLINE MARKETING SOLUTIONS FOR BUILDERS AT 2011 INTERNATIONAL BUILDERS SHOW
Company Offering Builders A Free Online Marketing Check-Up At Booth W4747
Orlando, FL – (January 12, 2011) – Builders Digital Experience, a leading provider of digital marketing resources for new home builders, will unveil their expanded “List Once. Be Everywhere.”TM online marketing package at the 2011 International Builders Show (IBS).
This newest BDX solution gives builders unprecedented access to over 40 million consumers across the Internet as well as over 1 million real estate agents nationwide.
“For the first time, a builder can list their new home communities with BDX and have their listings published across our exclusive network of over 150 websites and sent to our proprietary list of real estate agents,” said Tim Costello, chief executive officer of Builders Digital Experience. “As builders look to get more from each dollar in their marketing budget, we’ve made it easier than ever to reach a wide audience of new home shoppers and the agents who represent them.”
In addition to NewHomeSource and Move New Homes, the two leading new home websites* , the BDX distribution network also includes over 150 partner sites like Zillow, Trulia, AOL Real Estate, MSN, Yahoo Real Estate and more. Many of these sites are exclusive or preferred partners and take advantage of BDX’s proprietary SmartFeedTM technology to ensure that each new home listing gains maximum exposure.
New home listings are also distributed through the New Home Source Professional network which reaches over a million real estate agents nationwide. In some markets, more than 80 percent of new homes are sold with the assistance of an agent, making it more important to successfully connect with this key audience.
The company is also rolling out several new display advertising bundles at IBS including the only vertical advertising network created specifically for builders. Through the new advertising network, builders can advertise on premium real estate portals across the Internet with just one marketing decision. The advertising network is managed, optimized and tracked daily to ensure prime placement and maximum results.
BDX will also showcase a variety of rich media solutions at IBS including video, photography, renderings, animations, and the company’s newest Virtual Staging package. New pre- and post-build bundled packages give builders the tools to bring their communities to life and keep website visitors engaged.
Builders are encouraged to visit Booth W4747 at the International Builders Show in Orlando from January 12th through 15th to find out more about how BDX can help them reach consumers and realtors across the Internet. BDX is offering a limited number of free Online Marketing Check-ups to builders who would like a professional evaluation of their current online marketing programs.
