Creating a KW Commercial Site

Creating a KW Commercial Site

Keller Williams Commercial agents receive access to one Placester site that can use the KW BuildOut Commercial IDX feed and the commercial site type. This includes a commercial version of the standard KW Madison theme. In order to receive access to the commercial theme, the agent must have the commercial designation.

Creating a Second Site

If you are commercial agent, you'll see one site to start when logging into your new Placester account. If you'd like to add your second site, start by clicking the + button next to Sites.

This will take you through a series of site setup steps. 

Commercial Site

On the first screen, select commercial site (as opposed to a full site or single property site, which you are welcome to purchase as add-ons at any time).

Theme Selection

In step 2, you'll see your site design. Since you've already selected the commercial site type, the only option here is the KW Commercial Properties design. You can select a color of your choice and enter the statement you'd like to display over your slideshow. 

Note: You can always change these settings at any point when logged into your Placester account.

Search Options

Step 3 shows you your search form options. For the commercial theme, the only available option is our Omnibox with Autosuggest option, also known as Natural Language Search.

Menu Options

The 4th setup step allows you to select a default menu setting. You can always adjust your menu at a later date once you've added more pages to your site.

Basic Site Info

The final setup step allows you to enter some basic site info: your site title, tagline and logo. Select from KW logos here or upload your own.

Note: this can be adjusted at any point in your site settings.

Once you're through these steps, your commercial site will be built and ready to launch. Feel free to continue working on the site, or click Launch Site if you're ready to go live.

Note: KW commercial agents receive one complimentary site on their accounts. If you already have a live site that is not your commercial site, that is using your one site slot. You can either:

  • disable your existing site to free up a slot and launch the new commercial site, or

  • pay to launch your commercial site as an additional site add-on if you’d like to keep your existing, non-commercial site.
