New Elegant 2 Page Flyer Template!

We recently launched a new 2 page flyer template that has one large photo on the front and then the floorplans and more photos and text on the back (or if it is a photo tour it had more photos on the left hand side). Just select the template when you go to Edit Flyer, as shown below. Mouse over the color area and click to open the color palette that allows you to pick a color…or even enter a custom color code, so you can match it exactly to your branding.

You can show or hide various things like Price, the QR code or even the tour link. The flyer can also be uploaded or imported into xpressdocs right from your account, or you should be able to upload it to any other printing company to get professionally printed flyers.

To get started just login to your account and go to Manage Tours, then Edit Tour/Edit Flyer. Download a Sample Flyer

New Search/Filter for Corporate Accounts

We released a new simplified way to either search/filter for accounts on the Manage Tour page, or when you are placing an order.  In the past, there was a long list to select from.  Now, if you are placing orders via a corporate account, just start typing the person’s name (first or last) or their customer ID and the list of filtered agents will appear.  You can then quickly select from the list.

This is an example.  Once the list appears just mouse over the desired name and click.

Search Portals Dominate!

portalsAn interesting article from Inman the other day where the top 3 real estate portals are really dominating the search results. Zillow was at the top with 16.53 percent of real estate traffic.  Then came Trulia with 8.66%.  Rounding out the top 3 was (which  used to be #1) with 7.26%.  But what these numbers do not show is Zillow also powers several other websites, including Yahoo Homes, which is #4.  So you have Zillow with over 64 million monthly visitors to their site and listings. does power MSN Real Estate, so together, they represent about 26 million monthly visits.


YouTube Branding Now Optional

We recently launched intro and exit branding slides for the downloadable/YouTube video.  We heard from some of you that you wanted this to be optional.  We have listened, and you now have the ability to uncheck the box for the branding slides.  If you do not want the branding, or if you want to first download the video file without the branding for use elsewhere…and then add the branding, just uncheck the box, save and we will regenerate the video you can download or that gets posted to YouTube.   Each time you check or uncheck the box, we regenerate the video, so you do have some options to create multiple downloadable files.

We hope you enjoy this FREE enhancement!

YouTube Video Branding

We are pleased to announce the launch of agent branding on the YouTube videos.  We have been providing automated YouTube video uploads for years now, but the video was an exact replica of the video on your tour.  Now, we have added agent branding at the beginning and end of the video that includes info on the property as well as youtuve brandingyour contact info, logo and photo.  We also add a banner that displays your contact info and some property info.

As always, you can select the free YouTube posting service to either the FloorPlanOnline YouTube Channel, or you can set to authenticate with your own google account/YouTube account.  See the settings under Edit Profile, then Edit Tour Linking & Distribution.  Select the box to upload videos to your YouTube channel, then authenticate by signing in with your gmail account credentials (it helps to have gmail or your YouTube channel open when you do this).  Save at the bottom.

Then just make sure as you create a new tour, the box is checked to upload the video to YouTube.

That’s it!  Again we create these videos for free…no upgrades, up charges or manual work needed!
