The launch of Zillow's Facebook is one of the most powerful free agent tools we've launched at Zillow. It provides an easy (seriously a few clicks of a mouse) way for agents to add non-intrusive, but highly relevant real estate content, to their Facebook professionals page.
Brad did a great job explaining how and why to install it below. But if you want to see the pages in action, here are some examples (look in the left hand column for links):
Please note that these tabs are for Professional Facebook pages. They can't be implemented on personal pages.
Powerful Facebook Tabs Now Available for Your Business Pages
You already know how important and powerful social media engagement and participation is, especially on a site like Facebook. We now have some awesome additional tools available that will provide more great content helping you connect, capture, and convert more contacts to clients.
Today, I get the privilege of making the announcement that we've launched Facebook tabs for Business pages. I also get to debut my first article and announcement on the Corporate Zillow Blog in the NEW real estate professionals section. I hope you'll stop by, check it out, and give it a LIKE.
As part of our FREE Webtools and services, I think you're going to really like the new Facebook tabs. They look great, they're easy to setup and install, and best of all, they'll compliment your existing Facebook Business and community pages. They show and sell the information and content so you won't have to.
There are currently four Facebook tabs available:
- The Listings Facebook Tab
- The Local Information Tab
- The Ratings and Reviews Tab
- The Contact Information Tab
The new Facebook tabs will only work on Business pages, they will not work on your personal profile pages. You can install one or all and it's easy. No programming, no designing, no headaches, and in no time at all. Just go to our site and click on the Webtools link, select Facebook Apps, then follow the easy instructions to add the tab(s) you want to your Facebook business page.

How Can We Help Drive Traffic to Your Facebook Business Pages?
Let me know when you install any of these tabs on your business pages, if you tweet about it, I'll get the @Zillow team to retweet it which will help drive even more traffic and exposure to your pages and tabs. Just include @Zillow in your tweet. Leave me a comment here with a link to your tab(s) and I'll be tweeting them over the next few days to show-off your tabs and pages as well.
Any tools that can help increase your potential business on sites like Facebook are definitely worth looking into. I think you'll like these new tabs and I think your Facebbok friends and fans will like them too.
