If you are wondering the reason for customizing and creating our own domain since we are already provided a default one. You want to remain different from your peers and the best way to do this is by adding a personal flair to your website link. Especially when sending this out to your potential prospects!

Step 1: Register Your Domain and Point It To The Investment Dominator Server

Please note we recommend having separate buying and selling domains. This is simply because they both have two different purposes and in order to keep the flow of traffic to your site regulated for your potential prospects there should respectively be two channels one for selling and one for buying.

Step 2: Mapping Your Domain To your Investment Dominator App

Once the setup has been made with your domain and directed to our server the next step in the process will be to connect it to Investment Dominator.

Go into the customize tab on the Investment Dominator and go into your Website Settings – Buying from this section you will be prompted with an option to change your domain. Go ahead and click on this so we can register your new domain.

Go ahead and enter your new domain information for your buying site and if you made sure to connect your C-Name record with Investment Dominator click the check box below. From there hit the next button to confirm your domain name.

Step 3: Secure Your New Domains

Now after you confirm you will be prompted with a screen telling you your domain was changed and instead of just clicking okay we want to hit the Click Here To Secure Your Domain button. A lot of people miss this step so if you happened to click away, go into Customize -> Website Settings – then under the buying site domain there should be a button like so in the picture above which says Secure Your Domain.

Then you will be presented with a screen that looks like this enabling you to generate your SSL provided by Investment Dominator which will secure your website so you can have even better search optimization for your Buying or Selling site.

Then there you have it you have officially set up your Domains and have redirected them onto the Investment Dominator. Not to mention your sites are also now secured allowing for search engines to quickly prioritize your site rather than if it was not secured. The next step of this journey is Quick Start Guide Part 3 which is all about Customizing you can find this here. While you are still at the start of your journey with the Investment Dominator If you run into technical problems you can also message using the help function provided.

Please note: Once you first open up the Investment Dominator there is a welcome tour provided for new users like you to get accustomed to the software. Take a moment to go through this tour by clicking the ‘Next’ button, it walks you through some basics and only takes 5 minutes 🙂

After logging in let’s go ahead and take a look at the main navigation bar at the top of the page, it should look like this:

From this navigation bar, you can access all the main parts of the program which include:

  • Land = Your Land Property Records and Ownership Data
  • Houses = House Property Records and Ownership Data

So now that we have browsed the top menu bar and you have a general understanding of what is accessible under each section, let’s go ahead and dive into the ‘Profile‘ tab. 🙂

Step 2 – Creating Your Digital Signature

After clicking on the ‘Profile‘ tab under the ‘My Profile‘ section you can see below we are welcomed to some fields which require your review and input.

Let’s go ahead and fill-in these sections in order to populate data for us when we start to send letters to potential prospects. start with your name, email, and make sure to set your ‘Time Zone’ as the time zone you personally are in. Below you can see the example:

Great, so let’s take a look at this great feature we have which takes document signing to a whole other level. Do not worry about having to use your trackpad, or mouse to create this either, go ahead and simply click on the gray ‘Generate Signature‘ button on the bottom right to generate your signature. Like this:

You will be welcomed by a new window which will open up to provide you with some new items that require your attention.

Go ahead and enter your name and select a font style that best represents you.

NOTE: This signature will only be used for marketing purposes.

Please note if you choose to change the color to anything other than black there may be additional costs that you can incur

You should then see a signature preview, proceed on if you are satisfied with what you see. To finalize the process click the green ‘Insert Signature‘ button to save your generated signature.

Then click on the blue ‘Update‘ button at the bottom of the page to save the changes:

Step 3 – Filling In Your Company Information

Great work so far! We are now hitting the halfway point so let’s get down to business!

Remember the main menu bar from earlier let’s go ahead and take a look at this again, but this time our focus will be on the tab called ‘Customize‘.

Let’s go ahead and break down this page, to begin we are first going to just put our focus on the ‘Company Information’ section:

Let’s break this down by first filling out the fields that start with the word “Company”. This information should just focus on NOT your personal details, but rather your company info. This information is going to be used on your website as well as on your letters which get sent out to potential buyers so let’s do this now in order to populate the system with the correct data for later.

Then when we take a look at the company name section there is one thing to note if you do not have a company name or LLC you can use a D.B.A (Doing Business As).

The ‘Offer Phone’ and ‘Offer Email’ fields are optional, however, we recommend that you use a different phone number and email for your offer package that is different from your main company phone and email.

If you need to set up phone numbers for your business check out this article about how to use ring central as an affordable company phone system where you can easily set up multiple company phone numbers from one account.

Also, don’t forget to add your ‘Selling Email‘ address if you would like your sales message going to a different email address (this is recommended).

Please note: You’ll want to make sure that your buying information is different from your selling information because you want to make sure the people that sell you land call/email a different phone/address than the people that buy land from you.

Next, we want to take a look at the ‘Company Time Zone‘ field, this is the timezone that your company is in and could be different than your personal time zone:

Lastly, we have two parts the company notes (which display on your Buying website under the Contact Us page, and here you for example can put something like “We are open Monday through Friday 9 am-5 pm EST”.

And the next under the ‘Real estate Agent/ Broker ‘ field select which applies to you.

This section only applies if you are a real estate agent or broker and if you select ‘Yes‘ a short agent disclosure will appear in your marketing letter and on your buying website.

Well, congratulations! We have completed the quick start guide now go ahead and click the big blue ‘Update Site‘ button at the bottom of the page to save all of your information that you just entered.
