Microsites or real estate agent or community site as easy as pie

One of the questions people ask on our chat at RealtyCandy.com is "how can I make a microsite or an individual agent site or community site using WordPress or IDX Broker?"

Here is a quick tutorial showing how you can make a microsite in just about 5 minutes.  

Have you wanted a quick and easy way to make a site for a new listing like 123main.com? How about a page showcasing all of the newest listings in your farm area? What about recruiting new agents to your office or brokerage?  

The first thing you need to do is make the page you want for your property,  community, or agent in WordPress or by making a saved search in IDXBroker.  

If you have an office account with IDX Broker, then you can have agent pages already setup like the ones we did here for Xcellence .

Setup hosting for your individual site

Now that you have a page, you will need to login to your hosting account at GoDaddy, HostGator, BlueHost, or where ever you have your domain hosted. 

If you are using Godaddy, then you can use their redirect options as shown in the video below:

Great tutorial on creating microsites, James! I'm setting it up for a Re-Blog next week so more people have a chance to see it. Here's a microsite I created for one of our listings.

Kathleen, 


That is great.  


You see that you can setup a subdomain like iolani.hawaiimoves.com  or even 5109iolani.com and point to that page. 


This creates a LOT of good will for your sellers.  They love the fact that they get their own URL. :)


Let me know if you have any questions about setting this up for your website.
