Automatic brochure dispatch
The additional module “automatic brochure dispatch” automatically searches your inventory for properties that match the search profile of your prospective customers and automatically sends offers for these properties to the prospective customers selected by you.
Once a day, the properties inventory is searched for the selected contacts and the suitable properties are sent to the interested party by e-mail. Only one email is sent per day. This contains max. 5 properties, the exact number can be set. Others will then be sent the next day. You must use the“Automatic Brochure Dispatch” checkbox in the property detail view to individually define which properties are considered for automatic dispatch. I.e. the property must first be activated for automatic dispatch.
For contacts without a stored email contact, an activity entry is created instead of the email. You can filter according to this activity. For example, you can create a widget on the dashboard that lists these contacts . If you use the activity widget , the appropriate property will also be displayed directly.
If a property cannot be sent, an e-mail is sent about it to the contact of the technical contact , stating the reason.
Please note that the automatic brochure dispatch is an additional module with costs. Please contact your sales representative for more information.
In, the basic settings are made.
In order to be able to send emails to the interested parties, some settings must be made. In the search profiles, ‘radius’ or ‘regional addition’ must be set as KO criteria. For the eligible contacts and properties, all mandatory fields must be filled in and the selected options from the “Block marketing at” section must be fulfilled in order for the marketing not to be blocked.
With the fields in the basic settings you can configure the automatic brochure dispatch.
Above the settings you will find 2 sets.
1. Attention: Regional addition or radius must be activated and marked as KO criterion in the search criteria.
2. Please note that the revocation link can only be used if you select one offer per email.
Here you can activate or deactivate shipping.
Time of dispatch
Time for sending the emails. The entered time is the earliest time, depending on the server load it can also be a few minutes later. If the set execution time is before the activation time, the autobrochure dispatch will not be executed on that day.
Advance in days
Here you can enter how many days the property data record should be created before it is available for automatic brochure dispatch. This allows you to offer the property to VIP customers before it is available to everyone.
Here you can select whether and which brochure for the properties should be sent. When sending with brochure, max. 5 properties are sent per mail, the exact number can be set under “Number of offered properties”.
Here you can specify the email template for sending. We recommend creating a mail template in which the macro“_AutoExposeLogoutLink(x)” is used so that interested parties can unsubscribe from the automatic brochure dispatch. It is very easy for interested parties to register for the automatic brochure mailing service. This is possible with the parameter “autoexpose” / the checkbox “Automatic brochure Dispatch” in the contact completion .
E-mail contact of the sender
The contact set here is entered as the sender contact. You can choose from the mailboxes, or specify the email contact of the supervisor of the Contact record or the email contact of the supervisor’s office group. The e-mail contact of the office groups is in the group administration under “Basic data >> Office contact data: E-mail” to find.
E-mail contact BCC
Here you can enter your own mail contact, to which a copy of the sent Auto Brochure mails will always be sent. There you can easily see which emails were sent overnight.
Number of offered properties
Set between 1 and 5 the maximum number of properties to be offered during automatic brochure dispatch. Note, when using revocation macros like _agreementLink, _Widerrufslink and similar, only 1 property can be offered.
Percentage of hits
Here you specify how exactly the properties must match the search criteria so that the interested party receives an email.
Would you like to have the automatic brochure dispatch carried out for a specific contact? Then please activate the function in the contact data record on the Basic Data tab and check whether all mandatory fields have been filled in. Mandatory fields that are not filled in are marked in red.
Furthermore, a supervisor must be assigned to the contact and at least one search criterion must be stored in which the regional addition or a proximity search is specified as a KO criterion. To set these KO criteria, go to the searched field content viaand set it to Active , if it is not activated, and also the checkbox in the KOcolumn.
