QR Codes for REALTOR Websites

realtor technologyREALTORS: The QR Codes are HERE!

Tour Real Estate Inc now provides QR codes for our REALTOR website customers! You can find QR codes several places in your Client Toolbox.

The QR Code for your main website URL is under your Personal/Team/Office Settings. Each of your listings also has it’s own QR Code in the Your Listings section.

In addition we’ve added these QR codes to our Produce Flyers function as well so you can print listing flyers with these codes to distribute!

What are QR Codes?
QR codes are similar to traditional bar codes in that they use simple color patterns to convey information digitally. These codes when scanned with a modern smart phone can include links to websites, text, or contact information. They are most commonly used in print advertising to direct mobile users to a website offer or information page; can be a great way to breathe new life into print media advertising.

How to Create Craigslist Ads via your TourRE Toolbox

Creating graphical Craigslist ads from your TourRE Client Toolbox is easy! You pick the look, the listing, and the message – we supply you with the code to create attractive graphical Craigslist ads.

You must first be sure to have a account on Craigslist. If you do not have one create one before starting the ad making process in the toolbox.

If you already have a Craigslist account, or just created one, the next step is to login to your toolbox. Once there scroll down to the Online Tools section and click Create Craigslist Ad…

On the page that opens you can begin creating your ad. First choose the look of the ad you want to create.

Next enter a short subject for the ad. This will appear as a larger text at the top of the ad body…something like “Great Boise Home for Sale” or “Check Out my New Listing!”

Next pick one of your listings from the drop down list or enter ANY active MLS listing in the space provided. This listing information will appear in your ad along with the main photo from the listing. From here you can choose to include the remarks from MLS and/or enter your own personal message.

Once these steps are complete you can choose PREVIEW to see how the ad will appear or choose GET THE CODE to open a window where you can copy and paste the code to create your ad.

Once you have copied the code simply login to your Craigslist account, choose to POST and then the correct category (usually Real Estate for Sale).

Paste the code from your Toolbox into the space for Posting Description.
You can add additional photos if you like, or the address.

Add Youtube Videos to your HomePage

Tour Real Estate Inc provides powerful Realtor websites that put you in control of your content and search engine optimization. Our modular websites support a number of premade or custom created “modules” that can be edited, moved, or deleted at will allowing you to rearrange your home page with new information and tools as you see fit. One of the great features of these modules is the ability to insert widgets and even videos. This quick guide will cover the necessary steps to create a custom home page module with a video from Youtube!

HOW TO ADD YOUTUBE VIDEOS AS A HOMEPAGE MODULE

Go to the Youtube page that has the video you want to feature:

Click the EMBED box. Copy the little code that shows up in the window.

Login to your toolbox:

Click Customize Homepage Content

If you are adding this video as a NEW module click Create Custom Homepage Module at the top of the page.

On the page that opens, name your module and paste the code from Youtube into the Text/Script box. You will likely need to change the size settings. Our modules are generally about 250 pixels wide and a Youtube video tends to run 480 pixels. So anywhere you see the width and height defined adjust them accordingly…a good average is 250 pixels wide and 201 pixels high. There should be TWO places in their embed code to change this size. Once you are done hit submit.

The new video will appear on your front page as a module. You can adjust it’s placement on your landing page by moving it up and down or left and right from the main Customize Your Homepage Content section.
