Save $2000 on REW IDX - only 25 available

4,078 Views

THIS PROMOTION SOLD OUT IN 3 DAYS - Thanks for all who purchased

Real Estate Webmasters is offering the most significant discounted price ever on our most popular product - the REW CORE IDX (yes it's the one that is built into your REW website, has snippet & lead management integration and is search engine spiderable.)

So what's the deal - how do I save $2000?

Normally REW CORE IDX is $2500 for install and $360 USD per year for IDX data hosting.

For these 2 weeks (and only these 2 weeks) we will be offering our CORE IDX install for 20% of it's normal cost (You read that right, not a 20% discount, but 20% of it's price) basically you save $2000 USD if you buy now.

Some basic terms for this promo:

  • In order to qualify for this limited time promotion you must already have an REW CMS 2.0 powered website. (Template or custom, it does not matter)
  • All standard terms for CORE IDX apply (Client is responsible for any fees charged by the MLS board to access their feed, client must be able to access a raw data feed, REW reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason / or none at all)
  • This promo is for "existing" REW served MLS boards only. (We are not accepting any new feeds for this promo.)
  • Custom modifications (past CORE) are billable at the standard REW hourly rate.

But what if I don't have an REW CMS 2.0 powered website?

  • Scenario #1 you have an REW CMS 1 powered website - you will need to upgrade, this upgrade will be offered at a 50% discount (offer only available in conjunction with a "new" IDX purchase) please post in the work orders forum for an estimate.
  • Scenario #2 you are NOT currently an REW website customer. - The solution is simple - buy an REW website - the whole point of this promo is to give a killer deal to our customers not already taking advantage of our IDX solutions and to bring some more customers on board so that they too can benefit from REW's incredibly powerful search technology. Ask any REW customer with built REW IDX (That isn't in your market) whether or not it is worth the investment and they will tell you it's a steal at full price, never mind $2000 off.

This promo applies to NEW orders ONLY, (It is a "promotion") - everytime we run one someone emails us with "I just bought an IDX last week, last month, 2 years ago" whatever the case may be and they want to know if they can be refunded the difference - I know, most of you will go what? It's a promotion, that's silly. But believe me, it happens, so might as well get it out of the way now. THIS IS A PROMOTION - if you want to take advantage of the great deal being offered here, submit a "new" order, it does not apply to any previous orders. Sorry.

How about one more deal! Free hosting! (There's a catch)

That's right - I will give you free hosting for the IDX for a yearl (Save an additional $360 USD)

How can you get free hosting for a year? You have to land us a referral :)

So here's the deal (these things are impossible to track, but I think we can make it easy on you)

Write 1 email that tells 5 Realtors that you KNOW would be interested in this (could be in your market, could be someone across the country) and tell them about this smokin hot deal - probably easiest to refer them to my blog post.

Use the CC function on your mailer so that we can capture their email address and place them in a spreadsheet which will be used to verify the originator of the referral (We will NOT use these email addresses to solicit future business, we just don't do that) in fact it could be destroyed after the promo. The email address I would like you to CC at Real Estate Webmasters is idxpromo@realestatewebmasters.com

For each person that buys, we will check the spreadsheet and if you were the first person to refer that email address to us (Only the first person to hit up their friend will count) then we will refund your IDX hosting for the year)

Not a bad little viral marketing angle no?

Have fun and game on!

Sounds like a great deal. Please contact me about upgrading my site from CMS1.

oahumls dot net

Thanks, Mike

Morgan Carey

Ryland - you are so on for the $100 (Looks like I got a deal from Mikey already) - so let's talk terms (and even though you are being a bit cocky I will give you a break) if you can sell over half of them (51%) then you win the $100 but you are right, they will probably be sold out within 24-48 hours (We sold 1,500+ hours on the last promo in 36 hours so I imagine this will have customers chomping at the bit.)

Mikey - you have a bit of an old design framework so that will need to be upgraded (it's several years old) so CMS 2.0 and template design frame (I don't think you have any custom hacks) should take no more than 4 hours - so that translates to $200 at the discounted rate.

Tack on the $500 for the CORE IDX, the $360 for the IDX data hosting, and the additional $10 per month CMS 2.0 (vs CMS 1.0) pro-rated hosting (CMS 2.0 is $10 a month more than CMS 1 which I am sure you already knew) and you got yourself an upgraded design framework, CORE IDX, and CMS 2.0

Morgan 1, Ryland 0 - NEXT!

OCTeam

Very thought provoking...Can we buy it and put it on hold until we want to implement it? I may want to change a template I never finished to focus it on only one specific area of a city to see what it can do.

Morgan Carey

Of course you can Drew - I would build the CORE IDX now though, and then you could just decide one what you want to do with the city list and template later. If you are just talking about limiting the city list, as you already know with CORE that is included in the purchase, however knowing you, you will want a bunch of customizations which are just billed by the hour whenever you want to do them :) - Let me know as it officially starts tomorrow, and I am (and I imagine Ryland is as well) going to be sending out a mass mail and they will probably sell out in a day or two.

OCTeam

..however knowing you, you will want a bunch of customizations ..Yeah, you do know me too well. Let's go ahead with it. I want it for the dev60 site and I will cancel my other IDX solution and redirect some pages. This also motivates me to finally cancel my worthless #1 site that I had planned to cancel a year ago.

I'll shoot you an email later to get some input. Thanks.

Joe Cline

how do we tell if we have a 2.0 or 1.0 site?

Morgan Carey

Drew, thanks for our order and will do

Morgan 2 - Ryland 0

Woot!

Morgan Carey

Hey Joe, if it's for http://www.joecline.com then you have CMS 2.0 you can tell by the way that your login screen looks http://www.joecline.com/backend/login.php

Also when you login to CMS 1 you don't see this cool lead manager http://www.realestatewebmasters.com/leadmanagementscreen.png

Paul Caparas

Morgan, I want to order the Core IDX!!! Also I have the CMS 1 so I need to upgrade to CMS 2 too. Should I call Abe tomorrow to confirm the order, put this order on the Work Order in the forum or am I good to go. Tell you the truth, I can wait to get the IDX implemented to my site! Thanks Morgan for a sweet deal!

jason lpene

Morgan,

Do I qualify if I haven't finished paying for the IDX on the New Orleans site? It has been ordered but not paid for 100%?

I know for sure I can sell at least 1 of this special offer tomorrow morning as well.

Morgan Carey

Hey Paul,
Sounds good - Abe is no longer with REW, but I would be happy to assist you and get your paperwork taken care of.

Morgan 3 - Ryland 0

And the promo hasn't even officially started yet lol

Morgan Carey

Jason, please read my note about "promotions" it applies to "new work orders only" if you have a work order already in the queue, or something on a payment plan, it does not qualify for the promo (they aren't retroactive) - but it does not exclude you from participating with your "new" work order.

SVRPaul

Yippee!! I am in... for lasvegasrealestatehome.com and I'm going to need the upgrade to the CMS 2.0....

Thank you, Thank You Morgan!!

Paul

Larry Hann

Have you had much success with getting Canadian boards to agree to custom IDX for realtor web sites? I'm in if my board will allow it. I've had no luck trying to get them on board. They said it had caused problems for other boards in Canada and that those boards were looking at disallowing the practice. I did write a note to REW sometime ago to see if you would contact them. I was hoping that you would have better luck calming any fears that they might have concerning the whole process.

I have a son starting out in the business in Toronto, he has a REW site. Do you know if the Toronto Real Estate Board allows access to info for a custom IDX? He's so new at this I think he would have a tough time explaining what he wanted to have done.

larry Hann

Please ignore the last post, I didn't read your terms "no new MLS feeds" :( That being said I would be willing to pay full price for a custom feed if you were able to get the board onside.

loudog

Morgan,

This is an incredible opportunity, thanks a ton!

consider my order placed for the UlsterCountyLiving.com site (sorry Ryan).

- Lou

Dave Kovaleski

Hey Morgan,

I got your email the other day! Thanks! I am thinking a custom site is a little out of reach still. But this deal sounds good if I were to add it to ordering a template site. Can you give me a break down on the cost of me ordering a template site, and adding this IDX promo to it? Thanks!

I am not sure if you have already hosted idx information from our mls board, I would be primarily interested in custom idx for the Pike/Wayne Board of realtors here in Northeast Pa. The company is called Flex MLS.

Let me know if you have the data hosted!

I got my email out to 5 REALTORS too. I know one of them will sign up today!

Can you tell me how this is different from what I have.

Thanks everyone - let me get organized here (It's not even 9AM here and the promo just lol) looks like we might actually be sold out today.

Hey Morgan,

Nancy Comenitz

Morgan, Please check out my website:www.NewtonandBrooklineHomes.com and tell me if there would be a problem putting an IDX site in there. I already have MLS access. Is there an example of your REW IDX so I would know if I would want to customize and how much it would cost me? I am very very interested.

Thank-you so much for the email.

Nancy Comenitz

Josh Harris

Please count www.coloradohousefinders.com in for the IDX promo. I've contacted Ryland to get the ball rolling

loudog

Hey Morgan,

I referred Karen Davis and she had some problems posting here. I think she shot you an email stating she wants in.

Her template is still on dev21 and it does have the CMS 2.0

Morgan Carey

Yeah Ryland, with regards to Josh, he is "Metrolist" and as such unless he is the broker of record, he cannot qualify for a CORE IDX - he must use the special "associate broker IDX" available through Real Estate Webmasters / Metrolist - you can give him the same promo though, it just has some additional fees - I think it's like an extra $10-$20 per month that goes direct to Metrolist through REW billing.

Morgan Carey

Alright going down the list:

SVR Paul - you want GLVAR - no problem - if you don't have a current IDX or any custom CMS hacks estimate for CMS 2.0 upgrades is 2-4 hours max (Or $100-$200) CMS 2.0 as mentioned above is $10 per month than CMS 1 - I assume that's not an issue?

Only other fees - $500 for the promo CORE IDX and $360 USD for IDX data hosting (I don't think there are any board specific fees on your IDX)

Just need an "I approve" and I'll get it invoiced for ya.

Morgan Carey

Drew got your email - your SOCAL IDX is reserved for you my friend, might be a bit later today by the time you get a reply, but don't worry - you're good to go :)

Morgan Carey

Larry Hann,

Yes I am quite certainly we "can" service Toronto, however we don't have a feed there yet, so it wouldn't qualify for the promo. I would suggest you talk to your rep should you wish to pursue the feed.

Morgan Carey

Lou my man,
Sent in your order - you will get your referral credited back once (if) they purchase (needs to be confirmed first) - Also I think you have a credit on your account for the purchase of your conference ticket, so the whole deal I think (even without the referral) is going to cost you a whopping 361 bucks lol (If you get the referral, it will cost you a whole dollar lol)

Morgan Carey

Dave Kovaleski

Sorry your board is not on our list of currently serviced MLS boards and does not qualify for the promo.

Morgan Carey

Lee Cameron,

You already have a CORE IDX (although it's a bit old) but there would not be a huge benefit for you as it's not that much different than what you have.

What is quite different is CMS 2.0 vs CMS 1.0 - contact your sales rep (I think it's Craig) if you want a demo, or need an estimate on upgrading

Thanks

John Mejia

Morgan,

how much different will this be? pros ?? any particulars? I am interested.

mikey

Hi Morgan,

I'm ready to go, just a couple of questions:

- The $360 IDX data hosting - aren't I paying for that already?

- Does the conversion cost included updating my snippets to work in CMS2?

Thanks, Mike

Lee Cameron

HI Morgan

Thanks!

Lee Cameron

Morgan Carey

Mikey, you are ordering a second IDX for a second website are you not? If so then there is a second IDX data fee.

Snippets - as in IDX snippets? I am confused - let's assume you mean other custom snippets you have created, I don't think they should be a problem in converting to CMS 2.0

David Phillips

OK, I am in. I have procrastinated on all the other offers and kicked myself later. Sign me up!

mikey

Hi Morgan,

I pm-ed a reply to you. If my inquiry is not clear, please give me a call or I can call you when you're available.

Thanks, Mike

Russell Volk

Morgan, I am so in. Just last week, I was thinking of ordering a template with custom IDX from you guys and this promo just makes it a no brainer. Sign me up. I'm with TrendMLS.

So for a new template, template hosting, custom IDX and IDX hosting is about $2,000, correct? I hope you accept credit cards. I know TrendMLS is charging I think $25 a month, but I'm paying for that now anyway. I currently have IDXPro and after they released version 3, I've been getting nothing but complaints from my visitors. It's time to upgrade.

Brian Mc

What a deal, I need some of this action! Definitely put me down, I am assuming this can be used in conjunction with the 25% off for REW Summit attendees? If so I am leaning heavy toward that custom we were talking about. :)

Nancy Comenitz

Morgan,

I know you have been swamped but I am nervous that I am going to loose a chance at one of the 25 IDX spots. Can you give me a call at either 617-232-4186 or my cell 617-875-7775 to discuss this venture.

Thank-you,

Nancy

Morgan Carey

Nancy, I think you need to re-read the post - you MUST have an REW CMS 2.0 powered website to qualify, the link you sent me was to an Advanced Access site - and the answer to your question is no, you cannot integrate an REW "build in" IDX into an Advanced Access site. Were you thinking of switching to an REW site as well?

Morgan Carey

Incidentally, it looks like you are MLS PIN in Boston? If so, not a problem, that's on our list :)

Nancy Comenitz

How stupid of me to think you could put in a seperate page but of course you can't. It is time I started to look for a new site where I can do more. Unfortunately, it is too late for this opportunity. I am concerned about all the pages I will loose. But that can be discussed at a later time.

Thanks again Morgan

Nancy

SVRPaul

Hey Morgan,

CMS 2.0 Upgrade is no problem -- Everything else is good so get me invoiced for GLVAR. I was going to eventually get around to all of this anyways.. ...and just so happened to have the Broker approval paperwork from GLVAR for IDX sitting on my desk...

Thanks!

jason

Morgan,

Did you see my post here and in the work order forum? Am I secure for the 2 IDX cores I ordered?

Morgan Carey

Actually guys, a quick note - as with all other REW Promo's it is first come first served - we have 18 IDX invoiced today, and only 8 or so paid - if you aren't one of the 8 check your email for the invoice and make sure you remit payment ASAP

Russell, I doubt you have been invoiced, as you are not a current customer - so you will need to provide billing @ realestatewebmasters.com with the information that htey requrie to create you a customer account

First name Last Name
Email
Physical address (Must match your CC billing address if you are paying by CC)
Website URL and
Phone

DavidAbernathy

Morgan.

Please bill Waterfront Properties for 3 additional IDX's - please have Holly charge our account.

Morgan,

Please bill my personal account for 1 additional IDX - please have Holly send me an invoice if I do not have a credit at current.

Thanks

Dave

Matt Scoggins

Morgan, put me down for one IDX. This will be for my Cobb County site and it will have to be upgraded to CMS 2.0 - Holly has my credit card on file and can be billed at her convenience.

Thanks for the great promo!

Morgan Carey

Thanks Russel - Trend is on the list - which site are you doing this for?

Morgan Carey

Mr Scoggins (Ok Matt) - do you have any custom mods on that sites CMS or is it just old school? The template framework is REALLY old, so I would say at least 3-4 hours for CMS 2.0 even without custom mods, but again the 50% discount is in play and we will handle it as quickly as possible.

You're welcome :)

Morgan Carey

Ocean 30 / Dave - coming through huge as usual (That's why you're my top reseller and overall favorite dude - PS I think your blackberry lead manager is done ;-)

I do need to know which sites they are for before I can process the order though, as you can't just purchase stand alone IDX's in the promo, they have to be tied to current CMS 2.0 REW sites or orders of new CMS 2.0 REW sites.

Thanks again!

Morgan Carey

Nancy, if you are worried about switching "from" Advanced
Access and loosing rankings. Don't be - we have customers switch every day, and they only ever say that they wish they did it sooner. You're search engine positions are not in jeopardy - here is a blog post I made special for folks with your kind of concerns - http://www.realestatewebmasters.com/blogs/morgan-carey/4580/show/

Morgan Carey

Brian MC - Yes if you are attending the conference you qualify for 25% off billable hours (as many as you would like to order) until the day of the conference - however you don't get 25% off the $500 (But I don't think that is what you meant, just making sure) - you can't stack the promos that way :)

Let me know if you have questions - if you are buying a "custom" site, then you got the deal even if we sell out (Only because I know it takes time to get an RPF out, an estimate back, and approval) so don't sweat it - if you go custom, I'll give you the deal either way. (But please don't take more than a week, it's a limited time offer

loudog

Hey Morgan,

My referral, Karen Davis, on Dev21 hasn't gotten an invoice yet. She is nervous that she is going to miss out on the promotion. I know you guys are probably backed up but she is ready to pay at a moments notice.

Her email is Karen [at] nutshellrealty.com

judyo

I put my work order in but I have some questions.

Morgan Carey

Russel, check out http://www.jimsparrow.com he was point2 and would be happy to share with you the warm and fuzzies you need - www.johnsabia.com same thing - lots of people switch from lots of platforms every day, and you have nothing to worry about :)

Greg Leicht

Thanks Morgan for your time on the phone last week and today. We have decided to move forward and buy the offer that you gave me today on the IDX system for $500 with the template and the year of hosting. It sounds like a great way for me to get her the web presence that is needed in todays market place.

We are looking at the templates and colors now. What is the next step?

Thanks for your help.

Keith Lutz

Can you tell me what I have? Pretty sure I do not have CMS 2.0. What IDX do I have? Thanks

Morgan Carey

Greg, thanks for the call - what I need (If you can email me) so that I can create you a customer account is:

First name
Last Name
Email
Physical address (Must match your CC billing address if you are paying by CC)
Website URL and
Phone

Invoice amount should be $740 template setup $480 CMS 2.0 / hosting $500 CORE IDX and $360 IDX data hosting. Total $2080 USD

I had mentioned there was an upgrades page for additional upgrades, you can see them at http://www.realestatewebmasters.com/upgrades/ - but those can all be discussed after the promo so that you don't miss out on special pricing :)

Thanks for your order.

Matt Scoggins

Morgan, my Cobb County site is definitely old school! I don't think there are any real custom mods on the site. I do have some subdivision and price range searches setup up through the sites current IDX (Listingware). I will eventually replace them with snippets. Hopefully they won't be affected from the switch to 2.0.

michael paul eau claire

Morgan-

Count me in if the deal is still available. I've been thinking about getting IDX for the CMS2.0 site I bought a couple months ago -- discountrealtyworks.com. Now is the time!

Do I need to fill out a work order?

Michael Paul Eau Claire

Morgan-

Count me in if the deal is still on.

I've been thinking about having IDX added to my new CMS2.0 site, discountrealtyworks.com. Now is the time!

Man, I haven't even had time to add content to the site yet...fall project...

Paul Caparas

Morgan, for the Referral Free Hosting deal, was I suppose to email 5 Realtors because I only emailed 1 who might be interested which was my brother. I just want to make sure because I think my brother will get the IDX too.

Morgan Carey

Hey Paul,

Yes you are supposed to email 5 Realtors as per the post. 1 referral is great, and greatly appreciated, but the reason I said 5 is because then there is the potential that "more than one" would buy (Which is obviously better for us)

Here is the original post for reference:

Write 1 email that tells 5 Realtors that you KNOW would be interested in this (could be in your market, could be someone across the country) and tell them about this smokin hot deal - probably easiest to refer them to my blog post.

Use the CC function on your mailer so that we can capture their email address and place them in a spreadsheet which will be used to verify the originator of the referral (We will NOT use these email addresses to solicit future business, we just don't do that) in fact it could be destroyed after the promo. The email address I would like you to CC at Real Estate Webmasters is idxpromo@realestatewebmasters.com

Paul Caparas

Morgan, Can I resend the email including 4 other Realtors or is it too late?

Morgan Carey

Sure you can - I think we are sold out, but if you still want to email 4 realtors and recommend REW, you can still get the referral credit :) (That's the whole point of that part of the promo, to get you guys to help spread the word about REW)

joe cline

can you let me know if you are sold out. If you are not, I'd like to turn www.joecline.com from mlsfinder to REW and see what the results are.

Thanks,
Joe

Morgan Carey

We sold more than 25, but I think we can still hook you up Joe :) Send me an email in the AM, and I will get you out some paperwork - you are with ABOR right?

2paula

Darn it! I'm ALWAYS late to get the info! Is this sold out? I JUST called last week to inquire about the IDX. I couldn't afford the full price...let me know if I'm to late. I'm up for it if it's still available. Let me know. (I possibly even have a referral, she's been sitting on the fence, but I'm gonna push her off! What a rockin' deal....that is...if I'm not too late) :)

Paula

Morgan Carey

Paula,
We did most certainly sell out, however I will still let you in on the promo IF you send out the referral email AND (And this is more important) you promise to kick ass with the IDX (Make lots of snippets, build lots of pages and close lots of deals )

2paula

Thanks Morgan! referral sent! I'm way excited to do this. LOVE the website you're doing as well...if I can close lots of deals...that's next :)

Morgan Carey

Btw Joe,
I noticed you have a "quick search" (Almost missed it there) for your MLS finder, did you want to order one with the CORE IDX? It's an additional $300 and I would recommend putting it "above" your CMS powered navigation (Not way down below as you have it now)

Let me know

Joshua Sloan

Hey Morgan,

I know that this promo is past, guess I fell asleep....no wait, I was working....If you're still willing to give me this promo, I would like to do what Drew is doing an purchase the IDX now and implement it at a later date. Also, if you can extend this promo to my dad, I'll promise that I'll get him off the fence and have him call you this week to order the LEC site.

Congrats on another great promo opportunity!!

Morgan Carey

Hey Josh,

You cannot purchase a promo IDX without a website (Drew already bought a third site, just didn't have an IDX) so if you wanted to purchase the PROMO IDX, then I am still cool with it, but you would also have to purcahse an CMS 2.0 powered template as a minimum order (And hosting of course) - Later if you decide you don't want a template (you want to go customer instead) AND you haven't done anything with the template yet (we haven't put any work into it) I will credit your template setup fee towards your custom site.

As for LEC, the promo does not really apply, the LEC IDX is WAY past CORE - although I will give him $1000 off if he buys TOMORROW

Hector Lesende

PR: wait... I: wait... L: wait... LD: wait... I: wait... wait... C: wait... SD: wait...

Morgan,

I would like to add the REW IDX promo to my website and also upgrade to CMS 2.0

Thanks,

Hector

Morgan Carey

For those following this thread, the promotion is now sold out (It actually sold out in 3 days) - I "think" I won my bet with Ryland - Thanks to everyone who purchased.

Promo's are fun - what should the next one be? (It won't be IDX promo) I was thinking a discount on common upgrades?

OCTeam

Great idea!

How about having that promo now... so we can take advantage of upgrading the IDX's with additional features while the IDX is gettting integrated into the site.

Morgan Carey

Lol - I need to think about this one (And give my billing dept and production teams a little time to breathe) also conference (As you know) is next week - so anything I do will likely be "after" the conference - however if you are coming to the conference, you already get a discount on any labor your order prior to the conference anyways (hope you didn't forget) - and that discount is probably what would be offered for the promo (they can't be stacked)

The Koitz Group

Well done, Coach...and only a few more days to order discounted hours, huh? I'll probably need some as soon as MRIS decides "comply me". I'm going to bite my tongue (because you know what I want to say) until I get the green light from said big MLS board above. Cheers - K

Paul Caparas

Promo on common upgrades would be perfect. I'm already looking on what upgrades I will probably get. In my opinion, any promo you do would be great.

mikey

Hi Morgan,

I did not receive a revised invoice from Holly. I realize the REW conference was this month and also read about Black Friday. Things are probably pretty hectic there.

Just want to let you know that I have not done anything pending receipt of the invoice. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the use of my new site with CMS2 and learning how to use it.

Aloha, Mike
