Kurio provides each agent with their own personalized Public URL that you can use on your business cards, website or in bulk customer communications.
Some things to remember when setting up your Public URL:
Make it personalized to you and your business. I.e. Do you sell a lot of condos? Your URL could be http://kur.io/condokingofrichmond
Do NOT use ‘www’ in your URL.
Once you’ve created your URL, it cannot be edited so choose carefully and make sure you have everything, including spelling correct, before you click OK.

Send an invitation to John Smith by entering ‘JO’ into the NAME: field of the invite and Kurio will automatically present you with a list of clients matching those letters. Select the one you want and the name and email address populate instantly.
Need to call a contact about a listing? Under LISTS->My Contacts, select the contact you want and you can access their phone number for a quick and easy call from you mobile phone! No need to memorize these details or carry them around with you – it’s all there in Kurio!
