How To: Using YMLS to Build Your Website

When it comes to being an Intelligent Agent, you need to make sure you have a website that works for you and your customers. Luckily, we’ve put together some great tips for using YMLS to build a website that provides the perfect canvas for your business.

Site Manager

The first thing you need to know about when it comes to building and managing your website with YMLS is the Site Manager. Using the Site Manager, you can perform various actions to quickly update your website.

To use the Site Manager, simply click on “Website” in the left-hand navigation. Once you’ve clicked this, you’ll see your website with a gray bar across the top of the screen. This gray bar has multiple features that allow you to change your website to fit your needs. The Site Manager allows you to update contact information, logos, colors, the about me page and social media links.

Editing Pages

As far as making visitors stay on your pages goes, good content is the one of the most important factors. You need to make sure your content engages the reader without pressuring them into buying anything.

YMLS makes it easy for you to quickly edit the content of a page so you can make sure each page is tailored to your visitors. To add or edit page content, click on “Website” in the left-hand navigation then click “Start Editing” to begin editing your website. This will allow you to change various elements of each page.


In addition to adding and editing pages, YMLS also allows you to get more out of your website through its other settings. For example, you can add an Agent Roster to help display your agents’ talents to website visitors to encourage them to use your services. You can also set up SMS notifications so you can get notified as soon as a lead contacts you. This is important because it allows you to respond to a lead in a timely fashion, which reduces the likelihood of that lead choosing one of your competitors.

If you want your real estate business to be successful, you need to have a good website to back it up. Thankfully, YMLS can help. If you have any tips for using YMLS to build and perfect your website, feel free to share them with us.
