On both the Buying and Selling Sites provided in the Investment Dominator system, there is existing default text serving as an introduction to that specific website. You can modify and design your own version of this textual information to convey any messages you deem appropriate.
To customize either of the initial Buying or Selling Site text displayed, this is accomplished by entry of data into the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field.
Changing your Buying Site text display is easy to do, simply go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Buying> Access Buying Site Homepage Text:‘ field.
Note: Changing your Selling Site text requires you go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling> Access Selling Site Homepage Text:‘ field
Scroll down to [Buying Site Homepage Text] field and enter any text you want to appear when Buying Site Homepage initially displays.
Note: Any text or images found in the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field will automatically prevent Investment Dominator from the displaying the default built-in site text.
Once text has been entered into the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field, Scroll down to the end of the page and click the blue ‘Update Site‘ button to save the changes.

Your Buying or Selling Site with your new changes will be displayed on a browser tab.
In addition to the two built-in Selling Site themes (Legacy and 2.0) that come with the Investment Dominator system, you can design and develop your own custom themes and even share those themes with other users.
To create a custom theme you need to know a little about HTML and CSS. If you are not familiar with what that is, you can hire a front-end HTML and CSS developer on sites like Fiverr.com or Upwork.com that can take a visual design that you have in mind and code it using those web languages.
Ok, Let’s Get Started
- Download this Sample Selling Site Theme template which contains all of the built-in merge fields to call in things like the Optin Form that we use in our default themes.
You can use these merge fields to pull in information or functions used in the Investment Dominator.
- Use basic HTML and CSS to design your layout, then reference the merge fields as needed within your page structure.
- Compress your theme files into a .zip folder then upload that folder under ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling> Optin Page‘ and click the ‘UPLOAD CUSTOM THEME‘ option.
NOTE: The filename of the .zip file you upload will be the name of the theme when it is uploaded and a screenshot of theme is automatically generated based on your index.html file.
Here is a list of merge fields you can reference in your custom theme files.
[optin-form button_text=’CUSTOM BUTTON TEXT’ confirmation_url=’/thank-you.html’ input_fields=’c_fname, c_lname, c_email, c_phone, c_zip’]
