Create Your Own Custom Optin Page/ Selling Site Theme

In addition to the two built-in Selling Site themes 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 easily hire HTML and CSS developers on sites like Fiverr.com or Upwork.com that can take a visual design that you have end code it using those web languages.

Ok, Let’s Get Started

  1. 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.

  2. Use basic HTML and CSS to design your layout, then reference the merge fields as needed within your page structure.

  3. 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.

How To Mark A Listing As “PENDING” or “SOLD” On The Selling Site?

After you find a buyer for your property or sell your property you may still want to keep the property listing up on your Selling Site to serve as social proof.

There are two settings you need to have for the listing to display on your site as Pending or Sold.

  • The ‘Status‘ of the record must be in the ‘Found Buyer – Open Escrow‘ status.
  • The ‘Listing Status‘ option must be set to ‘Public‘.

This will display the “PENDING” text over the thumbnail of the listing.

If you then change the ‘Status‘ to ‘SOLD‘ then the text “SOLD” will appear over the listing thumbnail.
