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 HomepageText:‘ field.
Note: Changing your Selling Site text requires you go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling>Access Selling Site HomepageText:‘ 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.
To view the changes click ‘Websites> Buying Site‘:
Your Buying or Selling Site with your new changes will be displayed on a browser tab.
On land records and listings generated in the Investment Dominator you may have the need to provide additional information for yourself; as well as, potential buyers of property. We use both Public and Private links to accomplish this task as they can provide additional pertinent information for anyone accessing land records or customers perusing your Selling Site to purchase vacant land. Links also serve to keep listings clean and uncluttered with the information being provided.
Execute the following to add both Public/Privates links to any land records:
Step 1) To Create A Public/Private Link “Edit” A Land Record
Note: To create a Private Link a land record can be in any status, while in most instances to create a Public link the land record is in “Complete/Ready to Sell” status. Public links will appear on active listings.
Step 2) Access the [Links] section to add the new link
Once inside the land record scroll down to the [Links] section and press the “Add Link” button.
Step 3) Add either a Public/Private link with associated parameters
Note: Public links will display on any property listings below the property descriptions, while Private links are for personal use and will NOT display.
Enter the Title, Description, URL and Post Vars fields as needed for the new link.
Public Link Example: The following is a simple Public [Google Search] link and will produce an internet google search for entities in the state of “Arizona”.
Private Link Example: The following is a Private [County GIS Site Map] link and will access a GIS County Map for a specific parcel. This link provides information regarding the size, shape and location of the specific parcel as needed.
Step 4) Add Either Public or Private Link For Access
Once all appropriate link information has been added for either a Public or Private link press the blue Add button to generate the link.
Notice both types of links will be added and are active links which can be accessed from within the land record.
On your current Investment Dominator Selling Site, you may not be satisfied with the default order of listings displayed and may have a need to feature other listings appearing further down the list.
To change the order of how listings appear on your Selling site follow the steps below.
Step 1) Under ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling’
Navigate to the ‘Customize>Website Settings – Selling‘ section:
Step 2) Scroll Down To The ‘Property Listings’ Section
Scroll down to the ‘Property Listings‘ section:
Step 3) Arrange The Listing Order
Select the specific listings you want to move either up or down in order based on the listings display.
Under the ‘Display Order‘ column select either the ‘Move Up‘ or ‘Move Down‘ options for the specific listing you want to either move up or move down, (one position at a time).
NOTE: As soon as you select either the ‘Move Up‘ arrow or ‘Move Down‘ arrow associated with a specific listing, the system immediately causes that listing to be re-positioned in the order display.
Step 4) Save the changes
NOTE: Simply pressing the ‘Move Up‘ arrow or ‘Move Down‘ arrow and seeing the listing change position in the Admin Console will NOT be sufficient to update the listing order on your Selling site. You must first save the changes.
To save the new listing order scroll to the bottom of the page and press the blue ‘Update Site‘ button.
Step 5) View The Changes On Your Selling Site
In order to see any Listing Order changes, select the ‘Websites>Selling Site‘ option from the menu as shown:
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.
Did you know you can add an interactive property listing map to your selling site that allows visitors to see visually exactly where you have listings for sale.
When the visitor clicks a ‘FOR SALE‘ sign icon (the property location pin) a brief description of the property will appear which includes the property ‘Listing Headline‘, the ‘APN (Parcel Number)‘, the ‘Size (in acres)‘, the ‘Zoning‘, the ‘Market Value‘, and the ‘Sale Price‘ of the property along with a ‘View Details‘ button that takes the visitor to the detailed property listing.
How To Add The Map To Your Custom Page
To add this interactive map to a custom Selling Site page first create a public Custom Page then under the ‘Insert Merge Field‘ dropdown menu select the ‘Property Listing Map‘ option which will insert the ‘[property-listing-map]‘ merge tag into your ‘Page Content‘ and add the interactive property map to your custom page.
You can change both the Selling Site Banner as well as the Text that is layered on top of the banner.
Go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling‘
Under the ‘Selling Site Banner Text‘ field enter in the text that you would like to layer on top of the banner image.
Under the ‘Upload Selling Site Banner‘ section you can click the ‘Choose File‘ option to upload a custom image from your computer to use as the banner image.
Once you have uploaded the new image, use the ‘Crop Your Photo‘ tool to click and drag an area around your image then click the blue ‘Confirm‘ button at the bottom of the screen to crop it to the correct size.
Don’t forget to click the blue ‘Update Site‘ button to save your changes.
