  2. Have to go to facebook.com/username to setup your PERSONAL facebook link or the public link your your BUSINESS page
  3. KW Mobile App - Know what your Mobile App URL

Watch Michael's presentation from early April 2016, on upcoming roll out and what to expect. VERY IMFORMATIVE!!

Purchase a Domain (web address) for your website

If you already have a domain name, you'll easily bea able to redirect it to point towards your placester web hosted website.

If you purchased a domain name from Market Leader, via eEdge upgrade, you'll need to contact ML and make arrangements to have it transferred to a domain company like GoDaddy.

Get Ideas! Snoop Around...
