Premium IDX Templates
IDX Broker recently released a great new feature to all their developer partners with the Custom Template feature.
This custom templating feature allows IDX developer partners like RealtyCandy to create custom layouts and templates that are available for the needs of a specific client or designs that can be used by all our clients.
We are building out a series of these and we are offering them at no charge to all our IDX Broker clients as "Premium IDX Templates".
Social IDX Features
In addition to great layouts and designs, we are able to actually build some custom code into these templates.
You know that the secret to getting better rankings on Google and getting more SEO is to keep people on your site longer and have them look at more of your pages.
This is where our Social IDX feature comes in.
You get two sections at the bottom of the page:
- Recently Viewed Listings
- Most Popular Listings
The Recently Viewed Listings shows the last 5 properties that your IDX Broker visitor looked at. This gives them the option to quickly click back and compare one home with another they were just looking at a few minutes ago.
The Most Popular Listings displays the 5 most viewed listings by all your sites visitors over the last week. Popular Listings allows your visitors to see what other people are looking at and see what are the hottest listings in your market.
Both of these together are fantastic for keeping visitors clicking on properties on your website.
With some CSS you can move them around to different areas on the page and display the Social IDX in a different layout that matches you design.
WIX, SquareSpace, Weebly, or WordPress
While some of our IDXAddons at https://idxaddons.com are only available as WordPress plugins, all of these designs work on any platform.
That gives you the flexibility to choose SquareSpace, WIX, Weebly, Ghost, GoDaddy website builder, WordPress, or practically any web platform you can imagine and these designs will work for you.
Customizations, Speed, and Savings
We are shifting our business model from doing a lot of customizations and building custom websites that can cost thousands of dollars to a "freemium" business model.
We can still do IDX Broker customizations that you need done, but we believe that by using our Premium IDX Templates and other IDX Addons, most real estate agents can get a great design at an affordable price.
Instead of waiting a week or two for us to code a custom IDX layout page, you can click on a page like in the video below and in less than 2 minutes you can have a great looking website with a custom design.
We figure that for most of our clients, they will save about $500 in IDX Broker customizations by using one of our Premium IDX Templates.
