We’ll help you get there by untangling the jargon and explaining, in words you’ll understand, what IDX is and how it can help your business.

  • The kinds of products it powers

Which solution is right for me?

Are you building a new website and trying to understand which home search tool is the right one for your site? Or maybe you have an IDX solution already in place but don’t know if you’ve got the best one for your business? Navigating the different options can be daunting.

Our webinar will break down the different options – iFrame, WordPress Plugin, API, or an all-in-one IDX website – so you can make the best choice for your website, your budget, and your business goals.

SmartFrame Fundamentals

Having an IDX powered web presence is easier and more cost effective than you might think. With just a simple cut and paste you can have a full search, saved search and even cool widgets, all designed to provide your clients and prospects with access to the entire MLS.

This training is an option in our new fundamentals training track and will cover the basics of IDX, what LIVE Data is, the different ways to implement the link along with a couple of options for hosting your site.

WordPress Plugin Fundamentals

There is a reason that over 1/3 of the websites in operation today are built using WordPress. Known as a CMS or content management system, WordPress is a powerful platform that is surprisingly easy to learn when it comes to the basics of adding and updating content.

One of the reasons WordPress is so powerful lies in the ability to be extended through what is known as a plugin. Plugins extend the function of WordPress sites. In this case, FBS’s IDX plugin powers up your site with a full range of LIVE Data MLS tools like cool slide shows, market stats, neighborhood pages and much, much more.
