Building Better Agent’s App of the Week:  

Create and Share Screenshots with LIGHTSHOT

It is so EASY to save a picture of your computer screen or a particular image or article online.  We’ve been using an app called LightShot for the past few months and it’s fantastic!  In one or two clicks of your mouse, you can:

  • Snip a screenshot of selected area within seconds and save to your desktop
  • Share screenshots via a short link (url) and immediately post to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and more
  • Edit the screenshot with arrows, text, shapes and highlighters

Quick Demo of LightShot

How to use this tool for real estate marketing:

  • Take a screenshot of your home search website and share on Facebook – you can promote new listings, open houses, foreclosed homes, etc
  • If you are writing a blog about the real estate market, take a screenshot of an interesting graph or chart and use that as a teaser on social media in order to drive more traffic back to your website
  • Were you or your brokerage just featured in a news article?  Grab a screenshot of the article and post it on your “About Us” page on your website
  • See a great example of a kitchen remodel that you want to share with your client?  Grab a screenshot, save and email to your buyer or seller
