White Label Setup

White Label Overview

White labeling LeadSnap allows you to customize the domain address, colors, logos, and branding of LeadSnap to match your own branding. We have divided the setup process into 4 areas:

  1. Domain Setup – rather than your users visiting leadsnap.com to access the platform they will be able to access it through your own domain or subdomain. Setup time: 5 minutes.
  2. Email Account Setup – every white label account is required to have an email account. Since emails will no longer be coming from a LeaSnap email account you must authenticate an email account so messages can be sent to users without exposing the LeadSnap domain. setup time: 3 minutes.
  3. Login Page – This is the page used to log in to the white label version of the platform. These configuration settings on this page allow you to set the logo, text color, button color, background color, and background photo.
  4. System Settings – These settings apply to what the user will see within the platform after logging in through the login page. Through the configuration settings, you can just adjust the logo, favicon, and navigation colors as well as the colors for the buttons and icons throughout the application.Please read within the individual sections below for more detailed instructions on how to adjust each of these areas.

Why Are My Calls Not in All Leads?

Your calls are showing up within the all calls area but they are not on the various dashboards or all leads area. This has been a point of confusion that we are working to simply. Until then we created this article to help explain how things work and why we did it this way.

With the relentless robocallers and telemarketers we were concerned that the all leads area and dashboards would water down the lead count causing an inaccurate representation of leads. To help combat this issue do not move phone calls to the all leads area by default. This behavior can easily be changed if you prefer it to work this way. The default behavior is to have calls stored in the “all calls” area until approved and moved to the leads area.

The form submission that arrive in the all leads area have been evaluated by our spam filters which help protect the lead count from spammers but without this quarantine the lead count would be inaccurate because of the telemarketers.

The video below will explain this in more detail and show you the two most common ways to move a phone call over to the leads area.

CallRail Integration

What is CallRail?

CallRail is a third party voice over IP phone system that allows you to purchase local phone numbers from around the world and create dynamic workflows for how the calls are handled. While we support the integration with CallRail we highly recommend considering the internal LeadSnap phone system which offers more competitive pricing and additional features throughout the LeadSnap platform that are not available within the CallRail integration.

What Does The Integration Provide?

The integration to CallRail allows phone calls to be brought into LeadSnap in real time for analysis and reporting. You can playback phone calls and have them sorted according to the company mapping.

Before You Start

Before you get started there a few things you should have in place.

  • Active CallRail account with access to said account.
  • You must have the companies created within LeadSnap from your CallRail account in order to map the CallRail companies to LeadSnap. For more information on how to create a company please check out this support article: create company.
  • Your companies within LeadSnap must be activated with the CRM system.

CRM Map Companies

Map CallRail to LeadSnap

This screen will allow you to map the companies from CallRail (left side) with the companies that you have within LeadSnap (right side). If you do not have a company created within LeadSnap you will need to create your company before continuing. Select the LeadSnap company from the dropdown on the right side that you would like to associate with your CallRail company on the left side.

CRM Enable Companies

After making all of the mappings it is time to enable the companies. Our integration will grab all of the companies in your CallRail account, it is not required that you use all of them. If for whatever reason you would not like to sync the data for a company you can simply leave it disabled. To enable syncing the calls from CallRail for each company click the enable box.

CRM Submit Mapping

Now that you have mapped your CallRail companies and enabled the selected companies to sync you can click the submit button in the bottom right corner. If you have many companies you may need to scroll down a little bit so the button is visible.

CRM Fetch Call Data

The final step is to the fetch the latest call data from CallRail. Our system will fetch the last 200 phone calls from CallRail. It is important that you do not leave this page during the fetch process. This make take several minutes while we transfer the data from CallRail to your LeadSnap account.

Congrats you have completed the CallRail integration

Purchase Phone Number

The LeadSnap phone system is powerful and flexible. For our system to function properly it is required to have your phone numbers within our system. You have two options on how you can get phones into our system. You can port phone numbers (transfer phone numbers into our system from another carrier) or you can purchase the phone numbers directly from within LeadSnap. In this article we will take you through the process of purchasing phone numbers from within our system.

  1. Select/expand Phone System from the left navigation. 
  2. Select/expand Numbers. 
  3. Select new number.
  4. Select the company that will be associated with the new phone number.
    1. Each phone number is required to be associated with a company. We use companies to organize the phone numbers and call reports. The good news is there is no charge for companies and you can get one set up in less than 30 seconds. Check out this article for more information on how to create a company.

  1. Company Selection – select the company within LeadSnap that you would like your phone number to be associated with.
  2. Number Name – this is a nickname that can be useful to identify the phone number on reporting screens. Some companies might have more than one phone number, this can help you distinguish between other phone numbers within the same company.
  3. Forward Calls To – All phone numbers are required to have a forwarding number. Our phone numbers are not hardwired to a phone like a land line or your cell phone. We need to know when there is a call. For this reason we require a phone number to forward the calls to as they arrive.

b.) Images of you, a screenshot of your business license or DBA, and a few images of your workspace. 

c.) Your Business Website
