SmartTouch® Interactive, an interactive real estate marketing agency and real estate marketing automation and home builder CRM software development company, today announced that it has added four clients located in Panama to its roster.
Robert Cowes III, President and Co-founder of SmartTouch Interactive, originally from Panama, is proud to bring his company’s technology and expertise to real estate developers and homebuilders in Latin America. “With its beautiful beaches and reasonable cost of living, Panama has received considerable attention recently as one of the best places in the world to retire,” Cowes says. “Using the SmartTouch platform and marketing services gives our clients in Panama a huge competitive advantage, allowing them to reach qualified buyers in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America.”
SmartTouch Interactive’s first two clients in Panama are Fontanella del Mar, a gated beach community in historic San Carlos; and Buenaventura, an exclusive beach community near Farallon on Panama’s Pacific coast. Both communities are using SmartTouch Interactive’s monthly subscription marketing services, which include outbound and inbound lead generation and automatic lead nurturing.
Both communities have received over 200+ buyers request information within a 90 day period since partnering with SmartTouch. SmartTouch Interactive’s programs have resulted in buyers being found in the U.S., Canada, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, the United Kingdom, France and Spain.
Andres Farrugia, CEO of Fontanella del Mar, says his company is thrilled with the results SmartTouch Interactive has generated in such a short time. “We’ve seen a phenomenal increase in web traffic and qualified leads,” he says. “Using SmartTouch Interactive’s interactive marketing services and strategies has brought us prospects from across the world, as well as here in Panama. The volume of leads we’ve seen since partnering with SmartTouch Interactive is absolutely unprecedented. We have extended our commitment with SmartTouch to a long-term arrangement due to its proven immediate results in helping us attract buyers both domestically and on an international level.”
Following phenomenal success of the marketing campaigns for Buenaventura, Grupo Verde Azul engaged SmartTouch to handle interactive lead generation for Villamar – a new beachfront community in Panama’s elegant Casamar development – and Greenview in upscale Santa Maria. Keys to the decision where its cost effective cost per lead and its ability to reach buyers both domestically as well as targeted international markets such as the U.S., Canada, Europe, Columbia and Venezuela.
This past February, SmartTouch Interactive’s campaign for Buenaventura won the Nationals Silver Award for Best International Internet Marketing Campaign in the prestigious National Association of Home Builders sales and marketing competition, The Nationals. The Nationals is the largest competition in the U.S. for new home sales and marketing, recognizing organizations for effectively executing marketing strategies.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to share our expertise with Latin America’s real estate industry,” Cowes adds. “Of course I’m proud to have a positive impact on Panama’s economy, since that’s where I grew up. Just as importantly, I’m proud that we’re opening up new markets and opportunities for real estate companies in Latin America and beyond.”
Cowes will be in Panama to meet with interested builders and developers March 5th – 7th and March 11th. To request a meeting, please call (US) 512.659.6863 or email [email protected].
