Using the Third Party Website Quick Search Widget

Have you ever wanted to place your Quick Search on a third party website (not affiliated with your website)? We give you to option to copy the HTML that is used to create the Quick Search, so it can be placed in a Blog or other third party websites.

What are the benefits for your Customer?

Your customers and their friends can search for listings (on any third party site you can place the HTML) just by entering search criteria in the search box. They are directed to your site to view the matching homes for sale. The customer does not have to find your website, once they search, they are sent to your website to continue looking at listings on your Agent page!

What are the benefits for you, the REALTOR®?

Your customers and friends can find you, without having to go to your website! They can just enter an address or city in the search bar and they are directed to your property search! You get more exposure with out having to do any more work.

How do you set this up on a third party site?

Every site is different in the way you will place the HTML, but the steps to place it are pretty much the same. I will use a Blog account as my example.

Step 1

Log in to the Deltanet® and go to your 'Links' under 'Website'.

Step 2

Go to the 'Third Party Website Quick Search Widget' section and copy the contents of the box.

Step 3

Log into your dashboard and create a new post.

Step 4

Click the 'HTML' button to access the HTML portion of the editor.

Step 5

Paste the copied HTML into the editor

Step 6

Click the 'Compose' button.

Step 7

Click the 'Publish' button to complete and publish new entry.

A. Yes. Providing you have access to add HTML.

Q. Where will the customers that use this search be directed to?
A. The customer will be sent to the Agents' site from which the code was taken from.

Q. If I am part of a team, which Agent account should I use for the Quick Search?

A. No. At this time you can not post HTML to Facebook.
