Now that you have a site with RealGeeks, you'll want to set it up to suit your needs and the needs of your potential leads.
A welcome email has been sent to you. This will contain the site-specific information you'll need to get started. After reviewing your email, login to the Accounts System. There will be two icons next to your website's url. Click on these to gain access to your Site Backend (administration panel for editing the content on your site) and Lead Manager (customer relationship management system).
After you have received approval from your MLS board, please Contact Us about Going Live.
This is a requirement. You will receive an email regarding having your Real Geeks' site approved 2-7 days after you sign up with us. Any IDX paperwork needs to be completed and sent to Lida. Lida will submit the IDX form to the MLS board. After the MLS approves your site, they will email us confirmation. We will make the necessary changes. Make sure you check back with us to see if you have gained approval. Your contact/search widgets will not work without MLS approval!
Before Going Live
Before you go live, there are several tasks to take care of before potential leads will want to visit your site. Some of these tasks include:
Create and upload a landscape image and logo to your File Browser. Configure your Auto Responder Email and property update email signature. Set Up Accounts for any additional agents or assistants you may have working with you. Do your pages have 200-300 words of original content? Are you using Relative URLs? Are your tracking codes installed? (optional) Is your advanced search displaying fields customized for your area? Are you utilizing Featured Property pages? Blogs? Market Reports? Will you be using email through your domain? If so, have your MX Records been set?
This needs to be set up if using email through your domain. Please let us know which e-mail provider you will be using for email through your domain by filling out our support form. If using Office 365, please send all MX records associated to your account. We recommend using Google Apps for Work. Test your email as soon as your site has gone live to ensure it was set up properly.
