SmartrCalc Guide

Your Guide to Integrating SmartrCalc™ with
your website

The first simple home search & affordability calculator

Dear SmartrCalc affiliate,
Thank you for joining the Smartr365 affiliate technology programme. We now want to make sure we can integrate SmartrCalc into your website with minimal fuss and effort on your part so you can have free use of the SmartrCalc website widget. We suggest firstly agreeing with your website design company that they are happy to place a couple of lines of HTML into your website pages to launch the SmartrCalc feature, and also place click through buttons for the mortgage payments for each property listing on your website.

In order for the web design company to complete a change request to your website for the SmartrCalc integration, the instructions for them to do so are detailed below. From these instructions they can provide you either a free integration, or charge a standard development rate to do so. It only requires a junior web developer to implement the following lines of code into your website, so any charges should be in-line with this. It would normally take between half and 1 hour to fully integrate SmartrCalc with an estate agents’ website which they have built and host.

The key choices for you to make about putting SmartrCalc on your website are:-

  • Where do you want banners and links so that they will entice users to launch the SmartrCalc feature? The more prominent they are and having well positioned links with good captions, the more visitors will use it and potentially increase mortgage and buyer leads.
  • What banners or links would you like in situ to launch SmartrCalc? Remembering that links with captions and buttons that have an emotive note get greater responses, so a caption like, “what can I afford right now?” or “Can you really afford the property you want?”, “what would my monthly mortgage payments be?” will work better than just “mortgage calculator”. We have a few banners to choose from, but by all means create your own with this in mind, and to look as different as you like.
