Remixing and Sharing Web Pages With Bo.lt

There is a lot of helpful, useful information on the internet.  I know I turn to it over and over again to answer questions I have, find programs that give my real estate clients an advantage in their online businesses and share content I find valuable.  Have you ever come across a website that you want to share with friends, family, co-workers or clients but only really need to give them part of the site?  There is a free program that allows you to copy a page, cut out the info you don't need, add more info you do need and share it with others.  Remix and share web pages with Bo.lt.

Bo.lt allows you to copy any page on the web, remix it according to what you need and then share your edited version with anyone else via an original link created for each copied page.  This leaves the original web page completely untouched and allows you to share only the information you want with others.  The copied page is fully interactive and will include all photos, links, etc., that you leave on it.  You simply control the content that will be shared.  And Bo.lt makes it easy for you and whomever you share it with to post it on their Facebook and Twitter accounts!

Remix web pages and share with your real estate clients

But, how would a real estate professional be able to use this?  It's easy.  Let's say you have a client who is looking for properties in a specific area.  A search through Trulia finds exactly what your client says they want.  You are so excited that you want to share this with them as soon as possible.  But, you want them to only focus on what the house has to offer rather than the exact address, price and advertising surrounding it.  With Bo.lt, all you have to do is click on the link for the page, paste it onto their site, get rid of the ads and other stuff you don't want on the page and then send your client the Bo.lt link for a cleaner, more streamlined version.  That way, they have all the information they need without the extra stuff they don't.

Bo.lt does offer a free account that is perfectly fine to use.  Or, you can sign up for their paid account that has some dazzling extras.  Visit the Bo.lt website to find out more information.

If you find that you want to share web content in a dynamic way but want to tailor it for your clientele's needs, consider remixing and sharing web pages with Bo.lt.  It's an interesting idea that I think can help take your real estate business to a whole other level.

That's great!  Definitely a lot easier than trying to do a screen grab, cutting and pasting into MS Publisher or Adobe, etc, etc, etc.  Thanks for sharing...
