How to Create a Custom Contact-Us Page For your Selling Site

Did you know that when working with our Custom Selling SiteTheme Option You are able to create custom page templates? Like for example, a Contact Us Page will allow you to display something like shown below:

You may have noticed that if you try to do this now within your selling site responding with an error that looks like this:

Let’s walk through the steps as to how we can update this in order for our selling site to display the Contact Us page which could not be done without a custom theme. Keep in mind for any of you creating custom themes you will be able to do this to your own theme, but we are using the one Investment Dominator provides for this example.

Step 1: Download the Updated Selling Site Theme

Download this updated Selling site custom theme option which can be found here this will also have instructions on how to download the theme. If you already have this previous version of the selling site theme on your computer please delete it.

After having the new theme on your computer do not upload it into Investment Dominator just yet. Your downloaded file will be in a compressed zip folder, extract this information to your desktop or even your downloads like this:

Then you will see the new screen popup after extracting to your downloads if it does not please locate where you extracted the zip folder.

Step 2: Use a Code Editor

There are many choices for code editors out there but a good open-source tool that we use in this example is called notepad++ which can be found here. With this installed you can then right-click on the

Make sure within your contact-us.html starts with this code at the top

[custom_page_template name="Contact Us"]

This will allow you to then create a custom page within the Investment Dominator to then display the code we have generated.

Step 3: Create a New Custom Page in Investment Dominator

So now that we have the required code done and updated you can then go back to the folder in step 2 and now we want to change it back to a zip folder so we can import it into Investment Dominator:

Now after you have this imported into your Investment Dominator we can focus on creating that new page to match our code for the Contact-us Page.

First, go to your Customize Section

Click on Website Pages and Posts

Click on Add Page

For Website choose Selling Website

Load Custom Theme Page select the theme we just installed

Then just give it a page name like contact us this will convert the page URL to be contact_us

Once done you can preview your site directly before moving forward and adding it to your selling site.

Buyers List> New Prospect: How To Process a New Prospect and Qualify Leads

When people view your property ads and contact you for more information about your property you’ll want to process the lead and set up the sale. To do this, click on the ‘Buyers List> New Prospect‘ option to bring up the New Prospect Wizard.

The wizard is designed to collect the name, phone, and email of the prospect as well as collect some crucial information that will help you close the sale and track your marketing results like:

  • What property they are interested in
  • Where they saw your ad (lead source tracking)
  • Why they liked the property
  • What they intend to use it for if they buy it
  • How much they can put down
  • How much they can afford per month

An important part of processing the lead is also following up with them, so the last part of this processing wizard allows you to set a follow-up appointment that is automatically saved under your Tasks and assigned to your user and attached to both this Buyer’s List record and the property the prospect is interested in.

The system also automatically emails a link to your complete property listing to the prospect after you hit the blue ‘Save‘ button to complete the call.
