Power-User tips

Share pre-made links in social media

If you want to share a specific search result with anyone via social media (email, Facebook, Twitter), you can do so quite easily. Simply use your IDX to perform a search or find a property detail page and then copy the URL of the page you’d like to share and paste it into an email or on a social media platform. If you’re limited on characters or if you want to display a “prettier” URL, you can use a service like bit.ly and shrink your URL. You’ll be able to post this shortened URL on your social media outlets to share with your public. The IDX will be branded with your information.

Make QR codes for “for sale” signs

Show off your technical savvy by displaying QR codes directly on your home-front signs or anywhere on hard-copy print materials. Simply use your IDX to find the property in question and copy the URL. You’ll then use a QR code generator like kaywa and paste the URL you copied into the on-screen tool. You’ll then be presented with a QR code graphic which you can take and paste into any print material or print out a big version to add to your signage. Users can then see a branded details page on their smartphone.

Make accounts for EXISTING clients

With a FULL IDX, you’ll be able to create an account for your client and the pre-select listings for them that you think they would like. You can then give your client access to the account so that they can review the listings you have chosen for them.

Once your client has access, you’ll be able to see what listings they have bookmarked, and what searches they have saved so that you can have a better idea of what they are looking for when you’re not around.
