New Feature: Send Property Alerts At Any Time

03 OCT 2018

Exciting news! You can now send property alerts yourself as soon as you’ve listed a property. No more waiting for property alerts to go out the next morning.

Property alerts are an excellent marketing tool to send your properties to as many people as possible, and now you can increase the chances that you will be the first person to present the property to buyers. This is very important in the case of an open mandate as buyers could be working with multiple agents in the area so the first agent to present the property to the actual buyer will get the sale.

After ticking the property alert box when editing or uploading a property, select this option in your admin console.
The list of property alerts to be sent is shown in your admin console.

It is important to keep adding as many subscribers as possible to your database by collecting emails at show days, email enquiries and other personal interactions. Please be sure that you only add valid email addresses and only add email addresses you collected yourself.

If you have a large list of subscribers you would like to add, please email support@webbox.co.za and we will gladly add them for you.

Please give this new feature a try and let us know what you think.

Feature Reminder: Owner Emails

06 SEP 2018

Owner email example.


The owner email is a great way to let sellers know how hard you are working to sell their property. This email shows the seller what their property looks like on the various portals and can be customised with your own personal message to them.

Sending an owner email is easily done from your admin console and is sure to impress the seller.

Feature Reminder: Additional Users / Multiple Login Function

23 AUG 2018

Did you know you can add additional users with their own logins to your website’s’ admin console? This means agents can upload and edit their own properties, but not those of other agents. You set their permissions so you decide who can manage and view properties, agents, subscribers, the portal feeds, your website stats, enquiries and others tabs in the admin console. This will free up your time, as well as give you a good overview of your agents productivity in terms of how many properties they are uploading.

Manage users in your admin console.

The first 10 additional users each cost R21 + VAT per month, thereafter R16 + VAT per month. If you would like us to enable this feature for you please contact us

Please note this is only available for standard and responsive websites.

Change To Facebook Sharing in Admin Console

08 AUG 2018

Facebook recently changed their security settings so you will no longer be able to share properties to your personal Facebook page from the admin console. However, you can still share them from the property page on the front end of your website:

Click Facebook button to share the property to your personal Facebook page.

Sharing to your business Facebook page from the admin console is not affected by the new settings.

Don’t forget, we can help you set up your Facebook business page for R1670 + VAT (once-off cost ), or if you already have an existing page we can ensure it is optimally set-up for R940 + VAT (once-off cost)
