After the fantastic response and great reviews we received from our previous announcement about the beta, we’re REALLY excited to announce today that our dsIDXpress WordPress IDX plugin is now available in nearly ALL of our dsSearchAgent coverage areas! Between the time when we made the announcement and today, we spent a great deal of time to ensure widespread MLS compliance, we added a number of new features, and we polished everything to a beautiful shine. With all of the functionality built into dsIDXpress, we’re absolutely confident that it will be The (with a capital T) go-to IDX solution for agents and brokers who want to embed the MLS data into their website and on their own domain name.
If you haven’t read our previous blog post on all the functionality contained in dsIDXpress, you may want to check it out right now. We now have our dsIDXpress “microsite” up and running as well. We have tons of details on the functionality on that site already, so rather than rehash all of that here, we encourage you to click through to the dsIDXpress site.
The reason we developed dsIDXpress was because we hear loud and clear how agents and brokers without tens-of-thousands of dollars to spend wanted to compete in search engines with the likes of Realtor.com, Redfin, Trulia, Homes.com, and other large brokerages. dsIDXpress provides all the tools and functionality to do just that at a tiny fraction of the cost. While we can’t guarantee — nor can anyone – that you’ll instantly rank #1 on Google for every address or MLS number in the MLS, dsIDXpress certainly gives you all the tools you need to do so. In fact, we already have seen a number of our trusted beta testers rank better than ALL of the aforementioned sites for given addresses in just the few short weeks they’ve been using dsIDXpress. Between our Live Listings(sm) shortcode functionality, our numerous widgets, and our listings and listing detail virtual pages, dsIDXpress will have you ranking well in search engines in no time at all.
I know that most of you have just been skimming this blog post up until this now with just one question in mind. “What’s the price?” you ask. Well, we’re happy to tell you that we’re offering limited time introductory pricing for this product at the ridiculously low price of just $29.95 per month per domain with NO CONTRACT! If you’re not already a proud owner of our dsSearchAgent Pro IDX solution, you’ll also need to pay a $99.95 setup fee. For those of you who already have dsSearchAgent Pro, or if you purchase dsSearchAgent Pro when you sign up, we’re not even going to charge a setup fee!
All that said, dsIDXpress is NOT meant to completely replace your IDX solution. On the one side, our new dsIDXpress product is meant to make it easy for you to add live MLS content to your blog as well as boost your long-tail search engine traffic. On the other side, our existing dsSearchAgent product is meant to be an interactive interface into your MLS’s data for your website visitors. dsIDXpress and dsSearchAgent are two different products for two different needs, but they’re certainly a great compliment to each other!
Again, we’re extremely excited to announce this product, and we can’t wait to see how our clients use it! You can read more about on the dsIDXpress site, you can request a free trial for your own blog, you can see it in the WordPress Plugin Directory, or you can simply contact our sales department to talk with someone about the product. Enjoy!
