What is Mobile Internet?
Simply put, it is the internet as you know it, viewed and available on your Mobile Phone.
At Real Estate In Motion, we have combined all the best of all the property AND agent profile information you need to advertise, inclusive of details,
photos and of course video and make this available to you instantly on your mobile phone!
This is made possible as every property listed and agent profile created is uploaded to the internet and the reim.mobi platform at the same time - How EASY is that?
Testimonial by Jayne Harwood from Bushby First National in Tasmania
Just wanted to share one of our QR Code Success Stories!
QR Code story goes like this:
Agent turns up to Open Home and Puts the QR Code Sticker on Board.
Guy out the front sees him do this and they start talking about how it works.
Guy scans the code.
Guy rings agent that afternoon to say he has shown his freinds and now wants to buy it.
Date Listed 19/10/09 (4 Months).
Date sold 19th February 2010 (Day the QR Code went up!!)
Our television commercial is getting a great response and the agents are also getting great comments from potential vendors at Appraisals. One of the largest agencies in Launceston has SMS on their boards and now when we mention QR Codes at appraisals people are totally seeing how it is SO much better than just receiving an SMS with a price and number of beds etc. It has truly created a point of difference which is so important.
Below is the print media used by Bushby First National to promote QR codes:
QR (Quick Response) Codes
REIM was the first to introduce this technology in conjunction with market research work and planning
conducted with the Telstra Mobile Codes team. QR Codes are a two dimensional barcode that produces a mobile internet link on your handset.
This allows you to easily view and access
property information on your mobile phone including details, pictures and of course video without having to type the URL page address into your phone.
You will see the funny little black squares popping up for all kinds of use in printed media of all
types now and in the future and you will notice other suppliers starting to follow.
Most new model phones (last couple of years) can download QR Code reader applications on ANY
mobile phone despite your carrier simply by going to www.reim.mobi on your phone and downloading
the QR code reader.
Where do I get a QR code reader?
Getting the QR code reader is easy to do and best of all it's free.
1. On the mobile web - Go to www.reim.mobi on your mobile phone and follow the instructions. The software will automatically identify your handset type, download and install the i-nigma QR code reader. Standard mobile data charges will apply for downloading the code reader application.
2. By SMS - SMS the word ‘code’ to 1999 CODE (2633).
This service is available to Telstra, Optus, Virgin, 3 and Vodafone mobile customers.
A 55c charge will apply for sending this SMS and standard mobile data charges will apply for downloading the code reader application.
With the QR code reader installed on your mobile, you will be ready to decode mobile barcodes and connect direct to the mobile internet. Of course you will need internet service from your provider.
Once installed, depending upon your mobile phone, the application is generally stored in the “Applications” folder on your mobile phone. Open the application and this will turn your
phone’s camera into a “barcode scanner” capable of reading QR Codes when activated.
Open the Application, place the camera view over the QR Code and scan it!
(Note: depending on the type of phone, some will automatically scan the code, others will require you to take an image of the QR Code and it will then read and use the data.
Either way, you
are on your way to accessing QR Codes from that moment on) – Happy Scanning!
This technology provides you with information access "on the go”
Note: The use of mobile internet is subject to mobile data charges as per your mobile phone network provider’s terms and conditions
