HOW TO SAVE TIME UPLOADING YOUR LISTING IMAGES TO TRENDMLS
When it comes time to uploading images to your MLS systems most real estate agents are daunted by the process; which includes taking the images, downloading and organizing them by property, selecting the best ones and then uploading to their multiple listing service, like TrendMLS.
While some agents have assistants they can delegate that functionality to, is that a productive use of your time, or that of your assistants? Can an agent minimize their time, and that of their assistants, managing listing photos, while maximizing revenue generating activities? Yes you can.
While it may sound like a tall order, here’s how Mozes Photography can assist you.
Mozes Photography delivers all images via a secure Dropbox link that is unique to you. Your listings are organized by address and each photo is labeled with the:
- Complete listing address
- Room label
- Index number
So with image filenames like “11 Rhode Island Ave., Cherry Hill, NJ 08002-1-Kitchen-MLS.jpg” you don’t need to spend time deciding which photo goes where or wondering if it’s the 2nd or 3rd bedroom. See, we just saved you a ton of time and here’s how you can save even more.
Since your images are delivered via Dropbox, and not in multiple attachments in a compressed archive file – just writing this gives me the chills, you can link your TrendMLS and Dropbox accounts and simplify the process of adding images to your listings.
Once you get the “Your images are ready” email, simply:
- Click on the link and on the top right corner of the page
- Click on the down arrow next to the “Download” button and then
- Click on the option to Save to my Dropbox and then
- Follow the Dropbox instructions to finish
Here’s how to do add photos to a new or unpublished listing in TrendMLS:
- Click on the MLS tab
- Click on New / Unpublished Listings
- Locate your listing
- From the Action drop-down menu, select Add / Edit Photos
- Click on the Add photos button
- Select Dropbox from the drop-down menu
- Click the Connect to Dropbox button
- Sign into your Dropbox account
That’s it, no more tangled cables, memory cards, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth pairing, ZIP files and other do-hickies and thingamajigs to upload images to your listings.
While we can’t take the credit for the work done by both Dropbox and TrendMLS, one of our customer said it best in a feedback form:
“The program he sets up makes uploading the photos to Trend a breeze.” – Kristin Abele, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach
