Is My Ad Live?

Once you have added a property and turned it "on" in the Listing Management section of the Rentsync Platform, learn how to tell whether your ad is live.

Listing Management relies on multiple exchanges of large data feeds. Before you start looking for one of your ads, use this article to determine whether Rentsync has updated the feed for the Rental Listing Site (RLS) connection you want to find your ad on. Note that there may be additional delays following these times as each RLS updates their own network with the new data. 

You may wait between 24-48 hours to see an ad go live, or to see changes you made to a property be reflected on an ad that was already live.

After 48 hours, here are a few ways you can look for your live ad.

Option 1: Through a Lead

When you receive a lead from an ad listed with Ad Syndication, you'll receive an email copy of that lead, which includes a link to the live ad. You can also find a copy of these leads in the Rentsync Platform, and access the ad it came from. To do so:

  1. Click "Lead Management" from the main menu
  2. Choose "Inquiries Log" from the submenu on the left
  3. Find a lead from the property whose ad you are trying to locate and click on it
  4. Click on the menu icon (three stacked dots) and click "View Lead Source" 

Option 2: Through Listing Management

You can find the most recent link to your live ad in the Listing Management section of the Rentsync Platform. Note that you must have received at least one lead, and have waited the minimum period, to find your ad listed here. 

If you do not see a link using this method, it does not necessarily mean your ad is not live. 

  1. Click "Listing Management" from the main menu
  2. Choose "Syndication" from the secondary menu on the left
  3. Search for a property and network from the Syndication grid, and click on the grey link icon to be directed to a live version of your ad. 

Option 3: DIY

The most surefire way to see if your ad is live on an RLS is to check the map on that network. Simply navigate to the website of the RLS you want to check, choose the city your property is located in, and zoom into the location of your property on the map.
