Mike mentioned it to me and I messaged Eric through Twitter to say hi and see if Mike and I could meet him for a drink if he had a few free moments. Eric graciously responded and agreed to meet up in the lounge of the Four Seasons Whistler before his dinner meeting. So, I jumped in my car and drove straight to Whistler, picked up Mike and went to find Eric.
Now, upon request from our live chat team, you can have Facebook and Twitter sharing buttons added to every listing and blog post within your Ubertor website. This makes it easier for your website readers to share the content on your website that they enjoy. Here is what this feature looks like on Joey Marshall's website;
Now, within your Ubertor control panel you can not only link your website up to your Twitter account, but you can now customize the updates that your website posts to Twitter. For a while now, if you have had your Twitter account linked to your Ubertor website every time you added a listing or an open house your website would notify your Twitter followers. Many of our clients love this feature, some wanted to be able to customize the message to their liking. Well, now you can. Within the Twitter tab under "Marketing" you can customize your tweets.
