What exactly is the Agent ID site used for other than just another site with information that we find our clients would find helpful?
- The AgentID Site was created to be a compliment to your online presence. If you do not have a lot of online presence I recommend using the AgentID Site as your primary webpage. Add all of your Listings to the AgentID Site then share those listings to Facebook, share blogs on Facebook, use your Landing Page for lead generation, etc.

How can you automate it so that new contacts gathered through AgentID Site landing pages are added to our CRM?
- When contact information is submitted through an AgentID Site landing page, you will receive an email notification to the email address connected to your AgentID Site. This notification will contain all the information gathered on that landing page. At this time, we are not aware of a way to automate this process, but the good news is that, since the number of new contacts gained through these landing pages will likely be small, you will not have to dedicate much time to entering in new contacts.
Can we have another menu option next to “Listings” and “Contact” for “Offers” and have a list of all these landing pages we’ve created?
- The reason we haven’t done that is because we wanted you all to have the freedom to create as many landing pages as you want without worrying that they’re making your website look cluttered or spammy. However, Chris has been thinking about the menu a lot lately, so we might make that an option in the future.
Can I add additional plugins to my AgentID Site other than the Yoast Plugin?
- The AgentID Sites cannot host any additional plugins other than Yoast at this time. The AgentID Sites are all on a server-wide template, which means that individual AgentID Site templates cannot be customized.
