Lead Capture Settings

Lead Capture Settings let you choose the way that consumers can search and view properties on your website, and how many they can view before being required to register.

Using the Buying Buddy, you have the ability to customize the way leads are captured on your website.

For example:

  • Require registration in order to exceed a specified number of property searches (forced registration), or allow unlimited searches
  • Direct traffic to specified landing pages, or 'squeeze pages', requiring completion of lead capture forms
  • Or combinations of the above
Forced or open lead capture

Forced Registration

User must register in order to conduct searches and view properties.

  • Limit Searches - Set a threshold of searches, after which the user must register to continue.
  • Limit Property Views - Set a threshold of properties that can be viewed, after which the user must register to continue.
  • Reminders - The ability to show a "prompt to register " after a specified number of searches or property-views.

Soft Registration:

User can conduct an unlimited amount of searches, but must register to access ADVANCED search features.

  • Save Search: Save as many searches as you like.
  • Set up "Just Listed" email property alerts: User can create any number of 'Just-Listed' property email alerts
  • Save Property: User can save as many properties as they like.
  • Keep Notes: To keep notes, a user must register.

Open Registration:

Utilize landing pages or "squeeze pages" that provide an offer or a service and contain a lead capture form. Examples include:

  • Price Tracker - 'Get immediate alerts on price drops for your saved properties.'
  • Dream Home Form - 'Tell us what you want and we will help you.'
  • Request a Showing Form - 'Request a showing appointment on any property.'
  • CMA Form - 'What's your Home worth? Fill in the form and we'll give you an analysis!'
  • Property Alerts Form - 'Get daily property email alerts. Tell us what you want and we'll set this up for you!'
  • Contact Me Form - 'Contact me / us. We are here to help!'
