In this post, we'll get more into using Top Producer for tracking marketing expenses and marketing listings to the outside world as well as keeping the sellers in the loop. This post will focus on:
set up websites for sellers to see all marketing activities conducted on their behalf
Top Producer gives you the ability to set up websites for your sellers to be able to see the marketing tasks you've completed for them. You can, therefore, also keep a running list of completed marketing tasks that can be put on a marketing service report to send to the seller or that they can access from their website, which I will cover in the next installment.
Setting up Websites for Sellers
Click "Listings," "Current Listings."
Select the listing for which you want a seller website by either double clicking on the property address or clicking "View or edit listing."
Click the tab for "Seller(s)."
At the bottom of the screen, click "View Contact."
Toward the middle of the screen, where the tabs are, select the tab for "Customer Web Page."
Click "Create a customer web page."
If you have not already set up the preferences for your seller websites, the system will walk you through the process (it is all step-by-step).
All of the text on the customer web pages are customizable. Just change the text in the appropriate boxes. If you want to change the boxes at a later time, you can go back in and make those changes.
You can either use the automatically-generated username and password or create your own. (We always made it as simple as possible by using the first and last name of the wife, if they were a couple, or the seller if it was just one person.) To create your own, simply type in what you want to use for the username and password in the appropriate boxes.
You can then e-mail the login information to the seller by clicking "Email username/password to this contact." It will send a system-generated e-mail to the seller. Alternately, you may send your own e-mail to the seller and just include the login information.
At the bottom of the screen, click "Close" then click "Close" again.
If you have questions about this feature, feel free to ask away. I'll do my best to answer them for you!
Stay tuned for the next installment in this series, which will cover using the marketing service reports to keep your sellers in the loop!
