January 31, 2006 (Lombard, IL) --- BIRDVIEW Technologies today announced an agreement with HomeGain to provide BIRDVIEW's clients a special reduced pricing on HomeGain's Buyer Link Product.
HomeGain's Buyer Link provides residential real estate agents an effective way to drive pre-qualified geo-targeted visitors to the agent's website. The new pricing goes into effect immediately, and BIRDVIEW clients will be able to add this new service directly from their Web Assistant, the password protected control panel to BIRDVIEW's software platform.
"Partnering with HomeGain to provide BIRDVIEW's client base one click access to leads within their market at a favorable rate, is the first of many tools that BIRDVIEW will be introducing in 2006", commented Michael Kehoe, BIRDVIEW's Executive Vice-President. "We've seen our customers use HomeGain's Buyer Link service have remarkable success generating quality web traffic. We're eager to have more of our customers use Buyer Link" added Kehoe.
"HomeGain's BuyerLink delivers qualified visitors to agent and broker websites more efficiently and consistently than any traffic source in the industry" says Chris Hendricks, National Sales Director at HomeGain "but good traffic requires strong lead capture and lead management tools to be effective converting internet opportunities into actual transactions. BIRDVIEW tools help agents and brokers do an outstanding job converting the BuyerLink traffic we deliver."
