After logging into your Chime CRM account, you can start building your website through what we call the "CMS Tool."
1. Click on the CMS Tool icon outlined here:
This will take you to the info-collecting page.
Step 1. Basic info collecting
Here you can fill in your basic information. The email address you provide will be used as your contact email on your IDX website.
The Marketing Area(s) filled in will be the default cities or neighborhoods displayed in the Quick Search section and the Neighborhood tab. These can be added later if you are unable to do so now.
Step 2. Template selection
You can choose the template you like from the options available.
If you decide you want to use another template later, you can change it in the CMS Tool at a later date.
Step 3. Domain Selection
Here you can select the domain name for your Chime IDX website. We will build your website with your selected domain name, accordingly. We've put together a guide on how to select the best domain name for your reference.
If you would prefer to use your own domain name, simply click the second option and fill in the URL that you have purchased.
Please note that we will contact you later to complete the configuration of the domain name.
Please do not forget to click the “SUBMIT” button after filling in your information.
Now, the framework of your website is finished! You can continue to use the CMS Tool to edit your website content, upload banner images, etc. Please feel free to refer to the article in our Help Center titled How to Use CMS.
1. Can I use the CMS Tool to add a subdomain for my team member?
Yes, click Add Subdomain(s) for Your Team Members to see the detailed steps.
2. I could not find my MLS in the suggestions when I am filling out the fields on the info-collecting page, what should I do?
If you cannot find your MLS in the list, just enter the name and click to submit. We will contact the MLS as soon as possible for the application.
3. I’ve completed the website building, but all the listings are covered with a "Sample" watermark. What should I do?
Before receiving the MLS approval, we do not have official access to MLS listing data. The sample watermark listings are examples we can offer so you can see what the website will look like. The watermark will be removed when we get the approval from your MLS.
As always, if you have any specific questions about what you can edit, please email our Support Team at <firstname.lastname@example.org>
