iGUIDE Branding

This article aims to provide guidance on adding agent branding to your iGUIDE.


The branding feature allows for the personalisation of the iGUIDE interface by displaying a banner at the top of the screen.

Effective branding is crucial to the success of your iGUIDE as it enables prospective buyers to easily contact the listing agent for further information or to make an offer. The banner can feature a headshot, logo, contact information, and even a custom banner image.

Banners can be created either during the iGUIDE creation process or at any time through the settings screen. Once created, the banner will be stored in your database, making it available for use in multiple iGUIDEs.

Creating a new banner

During iGUIDE Creation

To create a new banner during iGUIDE creation, follow these steps:

  1. In Step 3 of the iGUIDE creation process, navigate to "Add Agent Branding".

  2. Click the blue "+Create new banner" button to launch the banner creation screen.

  3. Fill in the necessary information, such as name, contact details, phone number, and website.

  4. To add a headshot or logo, click on the designated black rectangle and select a .png or .jpg image file.

  5. To display a custom banner image, click on the "Click to select custom banner image" rectangle and select a .png or .jpg image file. FYI: A custom banner image will replace all the other information provided with the image you have selected.

Independent Creation

You can manage the database of banners from the user settings screen. From here, you have the ability to add, edit, and delete banners as necessary.

To access the user settings screen, follow these steps:

  1. Click on your name in the iGUIDE Portal.

  2. From the drop-down menu, select the "Settings" option.

  3. In the user settings screen, navigate to the "Manage Banners" tab to view the existing banners.

  4. To edit, delete, or create a new banner, simply click the corresponding button:

    1. The "Edit" button allows you to make changes to a banner.

    2. The "Delete" button removes a banner from the database.

    3. The "Create a new banner" button launches the banner creation process.

It's important to note that any changes made to existing banners will automatically be reflected in any iGUIDEs

where the banner is currently in use. This applies only to the banner information, not the banners’ Default iGUIDE settings.

If you did not add a banner to your iGUIDE during the URL creation process but would now like to do so, follow these steps:

  1. Access the user settings screen by clicking on your name in the iGUIDE Portal and selecting the "Settings" option in the drop-down menu.

  2. Navigate to the "Manage Banners" tab and click the "Create a new banner" button.

  3. After creating the banner, switch to the "My iGUIDEs" tab and use the search field to select the desired iGUIDE.

  4. Go to the iGUIDE Details tab to access the iGUIDE's home page. Scroll down to the "Edit Default View" tab on the left side of the page.

  5. Under the "Banner" section, click the black rectangle labelled "No banner selected. Click here to select".

  6. From the resulting screen, choose the desired banner from the list.

  7. A pop-up box may appear asking if you want to update the iGUIDE Analytics to include the email in the banner. If you do not wish to add this email to receive weekly analytics, uncheck the box.

  8. Once you have made your selections, click the blue "OK" button to apply the changes.

It's important to note that this only applies the banner information, and does not apply the banners’ Default iGUIDE settings.

A custom banner image enhances the branding experience by providing a personalized touch. This image replaces all the data input in the banner creation process with a single graphic.

  • The optimal dimensions for a custom banner image are 2550px by 820px.

  • The procedure for creating a banner with a custom image is the same as creating a regular banner, except the text fields do not need to be filled in.

The iGUIDE banner fields allow for the representation of multiple agents in co-listing scenarios. The display and inclusion of information is at the discretion of the involved agents.

  1. In the "Full Name" section, multiple names can be added, separated by commas, an ampersand, or the word "and."

  2. In the "Title" section, the titles of the listed agents are typically presented in the order in which their names were entered.

  3. The "Brokerage" section allows for the inclusion of the brokerages of the listed agents, typically listed in the same order as the agents' names.

  4. The "Create Banner" function allows for the addition of multiple phone numbers, with each new field appearing after the entry of one number.

  5. In the "Email Addresses" field, multiple emails can be entered, separated by commas. Only one website can be entered in the "Website" field.

  6. For headshot and logo images, only one image can be uploaded, either featuring a combined shot of the agents or separate headshots combined into one image. The lead agent, if applicable, may choose to include their headshot and logo while including the names and contact information of the other agents involved. The inclusion of headshots and logos is optional.

Adding an Existing Banner

To utilise an existing banner during the iGUIDE creation process, follow these steps:

  1. In the search field, enter the name of the banner you wish to use.

  2. As you begin to type, a list of relevant banners will appear.

  3. Select the desired banner from the list by clicking on it.

  4. The selected banner will be displayed in the designated black rectangle.

If you wish to change the selected banner, simply repeat the above steps.

To remove the selected banner, click the blue "Clear Selected Banner" button.
