[Wireless application for real estate listings allows interested home buyers to enter the iCODE "88999" contact number and house ID off the yard sign and in seconds receive an SMS response with information on the house.]
Orlando, FL -- ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leader in wireless marketing services, announced today the first live rollout of iCODE for real estate listings. People driving down the streets of Windermere, Florida can now learn more about the listings of Main Street Realtors by simply entering a short code number displayed on the yard sign into their mobile phones. The iCODE service then immediately responds with a text message containing information on the home.
iCODE stands for "Information Code" and is simple to use, even for the text messaging novice. The interested buyer goes to the text messaging feature in his or her phone, enters the iCODE number "88999" as the "To:" address and then puts in the home's four-character code from the yard sign as the body of the message. In just a few seconds, the iCODE service responds with information about the house. iCODE works today on AT&T/Cingular, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon phones with additional carriers soon to be added.
"Flyers attached to yard signs have been nothing but problems for us, yet people want instant information about a house they are driving by," said Judy Black, owner/broker of Main Street Realtors. "iCODE is the answer."
"We are tremendously excited in reaching the realtor market with our newest extension of our iCODE service," said Dean Fresonke, CEO of ClearSky Mobile Media. "iCODE is the fastest and most cost-effective way for businesses to add the power of interactive, wireless marketing to connect with their customers."
