We are pleased to release an update to your Virtual Office Website (VOW) system that will now allow you to fine-tune at what point your website visitors will be prompted to signup (or login) when they are browsing or searching for listings. You can now specify how many times a visitor will be allowed to perform a search or view listing details before they are prompted for a signup. Of course, you may still continue to let your visitors freely search and browse listings without restrictions.

It is easy to enable this feature: simply navigate to your Listings Module in the Private Office (http://private-office.myrealpage.com)  and click on “VOW Preferences and Branding”; the resulting screen contains the section with the appropriate settings (as shown in the screenshot).

VOW Require Signup Options 

This feature is now available to both Website+Listings and Listings-only customers. We hope you put these new features to good use and generate more leads and business!

Let us know what you think, as always, we would love to hear from: feedback@myrealpage.com

This is one of the best website improvements, because you are no longer forcing visitors to sign-up in order to see the listings. It follows ?give and you shall receive? principle ? to ensure visitors we are not just trying to extract their contact info, but demonstrating the true value of having full MLS access beforehand. Great job guys!

This is yet another great improvement. This gives the option of allowing the potential client to test things out first before having to fully commit to signing up. Much better than the all or nothing approach. Great system that keeps on getting better all the time!

I like it! I set my site to allow 3 searches & 5 detail views (just like the above example) before they must sign up. What number did everybody else put in?

Sound interesting. I think I should try and watch the number of leads for some time. Just wonder what numbers to put in. MRP, is there any statistical tool that would show and average number of searches and viewed listings per visit? I

Hello Tatiana, we actually do not have data on that yet. As it is a new feature we'll need time to capture the data over time before we could draw conclusions. We are just as curious and will be sure to share what we learn over time!

Great feature guys. Just enabled it today on www.findnewdigs.com
I set mine to 10 / 10.

Has any one received any sign ups after turning this on so far?
