Whether you are looking for a way to supercharge your default kvCORE website template or want to enhance your personalized Semi-Custom Website Template, custom website widgets can bring a fresh face lift to your online presence and help you capture more leads.

Website widgets include the below options:

  1. Multiple Featured Areas
  2. One Local Featured Area
  3. Lead Generation Chat Widget
  4. Calls to Action
  5. Mortgage Calculator
  6. Carousel Slider Images
  7. "Meet the Team" Section
  8. Mobile Responsive Videos

You can purchase one or more at a time by logging into your kvCORE account and clicking on the Marketplace tab to the left.

You can then click on the "Website" button on the top to the right to view the "Semi-Custom Templates & Custom Featured Areas" tile or click on the "Enhance My Website" button in the blue "I want to:" slider.

Once you find the tile, click "Learn More" to watch a short video explaining your options and to purchase this add-on.

After clicking 'Learn More' you can click on the green 'Add to kvCORE' button on the top right to view the order form.

You will notice that it also contains the option to purchase the Semi-Custom Website Template, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

If you only wish to purchase a widget you can scroll down past that section and only check the box(es) of the widget(s) you would like to purchase.

There are two types of featured area widgets that are available for purchase:

  1. 9 Featured Area Tiles
  2. Single Featured Area

The most popular widget is the featured area tiles section. This allows you to choose up to 9 individual areas that you specialize in and spotlight them on your website's home page.

The tiles' design can be customized along with the areas, so please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

In order to create these, you must build each area link that the tile redirects a visitor to when clicked on.

To learn more about creating these links please watch this video:

Another easy way to bring attention to an area you specialize in is to feature it by itself on your homepage. This area can be used to feature a specific city, neighborhood, or zip code.

Alternatively, you could feature specific listings in this area like Open Houses and Most or Least Expensive listings, etc..

Please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

Lead Generation Chat Widget

This handy little chat widget replaces the default Facebook Messenger chat widget in the bottom right corner of your kvCORE website, but instead of staying on your home page it will actually follow visitors around as they click on each web page!

It displays your profile image, contact information, social media links, and common search links along with a few other options.

This is another easy way to capture lead information since it asks visitors to log into their account on your website and if they do not already have one they will be asked to register in order to gain access to further functionality, like saving favorite properties.

Calls to Action

The second most popular widget add-on is the calls to action section. While your Professional Services Team Representative will have some default suggestions, these action areas can really consist of anything you would like.

Commonly used calls to action include featuring your mortgage lender, recruiting agents to your team, and seller valuations.

Please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

Mortgage Calculator

A mortgage calculator widget is always a good addition to any real estate website and you have two options to choose from with this Marketplace Add-on.

Simple and Elegant

Modern and Compact

The widget will be built into a Custom Page and added to the top navigation bar of your website as an additional tab.

This interactive sliding widget allows you to choose up to six vertically skinny images and link them to another page, commonly used as a listing type spotlight.

Because this can be heavily customized please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

"Meet the Team" Slider

If you have a team and would like to feature all your agents then this nifty slider will offer you a lot of flexibility when doing so.

Please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

Mobile Responsive Videos

Most consumers prefer to watch a short video over reading through an article or a chunk of text, so capitalizing on that preference is a very smart move!

You can do so with the mobile responsive video add-on that offers two solutions:

  1. An individual video showcasing you, your business, your team, or anything else you would like your website visitors to see on your home page.
  2. Up to 6 individual smaller video tiles showcasing a multitude of options, like community spotlights, video testimonials, or snippets about buying vs. selling info.

Please be prepared to discuss your preferences with the Professional Services Team Representative assisting you.

TIP: Because the videos need to be uploaded onto YouTube prior to building this section out, you can prepare ahead of time by adding them to your personal YouTube channel and making them Public.
