Office and Team account users may tag any IDX link with their Agent code. This accomplishes two things:
- Any visitor to a "tagged" page will be assigned to the Agent ID provided by the tag.
- Any subsequent IDX page will display the Agent's custom subheader (if the Agent has provided one via their bio settings).
Agent subheaders allow agents to co-brand your Office website with their subheader content. Each agent may simply append a unique tag to any of your IDX page links to direct their leads to your IDX pages. When a user visits one of those tagged page links, the Agent's bio sub header will appear at the top of every page on your site. More importantly, that lead will automatically be assigned to the Agent that sent the visitor to your site. By taking advantage of this feature, your agents are able to capture leads from any source, such as:
- Customer email communications
- Social networking sites like Twitter or Facebook
- Blog posts
Agents may add content to their Subheaders by logging into their IDX Broker control panel. Click Users in the main menu, Agents in the submenu, and Manage from the drop-down menu.
Choose an agent, and click the edit icon in the tools column.
Click Sub-Header in the row of tabs on the Edit Agent screen.
On this screen you will see the agentHeaderID tag for that agent, as well as an editor you can use to add subheader content for the agent. This subheader will display at the top of any IDX page that has been appended with the agent tag.
To advise an Agent on how to send visitors to an IDX page with their Agent ID appended, just have them add "?agentHeaderID=[their unique number here]" to the end of any URL for an IDX page. Example: http://greatpropertyforsale.idxbroker.com/idx/search/homes?agentHeaderID=31
