Never Miss a Lead Again with the Fallback Widget

As a real estate agent, it's important to have a visually appealing and user-friendly website that effectively showcases your IDX content. However, receiving a "no results" message can be disappointing for potential leads who search for a property that you don't have available. 

It's crucial to ensure that your website always displays properties, as no one wants to land on a page with a blank space. 

This is where the fallback widget comes in. By providing a backup listing of properties when a user searches for an unavailable property, you can ensure that your potential leads always have access to your listings. This increases the chances of turning your website visitors into potential leads.

What is a Fallback Widget? 

A fallback widget is a tool that displays a backup listing of properties when a user is looking at a search that would normally be empty. 

This could happen for any number of reasons, most commonly because agents don't have any listings available at that moment and they want to display something else as their Featured Listings.

Using a fallback widget ensures your users will always be able to access IDX content and listings intended to potentially find another property of interest.


Easy to set up

Setting up the fallback widget is a relatively easy process, and it can be done by following a few simple steps. First, you'll need to log in to your IDXAddons account and navigate to the Fallback Widget app

You can find a very complete tutorial at IDXAddons to guide you through the process of setting up the widget. The tutorial includes step-by-step instructions and screenshots to help you understand each stage of the process.

Overall, the fallback widget is a valuable tool for any real estate agent looking to improve the user experience on their website. While it may not have all the bells and whistles of more advanced widgets, it's easy to set up, customizable, and optimized for speed.
