Tag Any Page with Agent Code

Office and Team account users may tag any URL with an 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 sub headers allow agents to co-brand your Office website with their Subheader content. Each agent may simply append a unique tag to the any of your Search pages, to direct their leads to your IDX search pages. When a user visits one of those tagged page links, the Agent's Bio Subheader 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, clicking the Bio tab, and using the Bio Page Header editor to create a Subheader. If agents do not have permission to edit their own bio pages, you or your web designer will need to create a Subheader for each agent.

The Agent's code may be found in the URL path of the Agent's Bio page. If you login to IDX Broker and go to Manage Users/Offices -> Manage Users and click on the Review Bio link for any Agent, you will see that the URL path always displays "bio.php?id=[some number]".

To advise an Agent in how to send visitors to your Basic Search form, when the Agent's bio ID is 4, you would have them add "?agentHeaderID=4" to "[your account #]/basicSearch.php?agentHeaderID=4". This is true for any of your IDX search, results, or details pages.
