Since today's online consumer likes the anonymity the internet provides, email is often the best way to engage and start building a relationship with them. When sending an email from your system, you just need to choose the recipient(s), then compose your email. You can also take your emails to the next level with personalized greetings or subject lines too.
Sending an Email
There are three ways you can send emails from your Market Leader system:
All Contacts Dashboard
From the All Contacts dashboard, find the contact you wish to email, and then select Send Email from the More menu.
From a Specific Contact
Click on a specific contact in your system, click the Send Email link from the contact record.
From Your Inbox
Click on Messages in the top menu, then click Compose Email.
To add recipients to an email, click the To button.
When sending an email from a specific contact, their email address will automatically populate the To line.
Here you can choose specific contacts or groups to add to your email, and you can contacts by group, contact status, name or email. Click the Add button to add them to the recipient list, then click Save & Continue.
When sending an email, eligible contacts means they have a valid, deliverable email address. If they don't have a good, working email, they won't appear in the list.
Once you save your recipients, you'll see them listed in the To line. If there are multiple recipients, each contact will be blind copied, so it appears as though the email was sent only to them.
Composing Your Email
Enter a subject line, then add the body for your email or insert a Quick Text template. To attach a file, click Attach File and select the file from your computer. Learn more about Email Quick Text
File size cannot exceed 10 MB. Total email size, including attachment, cannot exceed 12MB.
You can also choose to include social media links in your email footer, or showcase properties:
- If you check the Include Social Media Links box, it will pull your social media icons from your profile settings.
- If you check the Include Showcase Properties box, it will randomly pull 3 of your listings (or your office's listings) into the email footer.
Personalize Your Emails
You can insert contact details to give your email a more personal look and feel (these are also referred to as mail merge variables). For example, you can add the Contact First Name option, and it will add the contact's first name to the email.
To add contact details to your email, simply select the field from the drop-down menu. Learn more about adding contact details to an email
