Best practices before your open house
- Familiarize yourself with Spacio at home first before your open house. The worst case would be not knowing how to help a visitor use the app! We recommend testing Spacio on all your devices. For help, access all of our tutorials under the Help menu after you log into the app. Alternatively, all tutorials can be accessed online: spac.io/tutorials.
- Perform a test registration with the Spacio tablet app. Remember to register yourself online and offline. To enable offline mode, turn off wifi or turn your tablet on airplane mode. It’s is important to test offline mode before your open house, as you may have a weak wifi connection at the open house and need to revert to offline mode. It is important to note that offline mode is only available on the iPad app and Android tablet app. A comprehensive guide to offline mode can be found here: spac.io/offline.
Best practices during your open house
- Connect your main registration device to wifi whenever it is available to minimize any syncing errors. This also ensures you’ll be able to see visitors information on your mobile phone in real-time during the open house.
- Anticipate weak wifi connections. Weak wifi signals may cause the Spacio app to freeze as it attempts to load. If you are anticipating a weak connection, you must use your tablet apps in offline mode from the start of your open house. To ensure you run your apps correctly in offline mode, turn off your wifi or turn on airplane mode. A comprehensive guide to offline mode can be found here: spac.io/offline. As an alternative to using your tablet apps in offline mode, use your iOS or Android mobile phones for visitor registration through your data connection.
Best practices after your open house.
- Re-connect to wifi. If your iPad or Android tablet was offline during the open house, and you have enabled auto emails, remember to open the app when your device is connected to wifi again. This will ensure all auto emails are triggered and sent to visitors. This step is also necessary to perform after your open house as this syncs all the leads generated on your device to your Spacio account.
- If you did not enable the auto email, follow up with interested parties using the Broadcast Message feature. This feature helps you keep visitors informed with updated information about the property, such as incoming offers and price reductions. Also, if you have any new listings that come up in the same area, consider inviting visitors to attend a preview. A guide to using the Broadcast Message feature can be found here.
