What you need to know about Eflyers

If you wish to start a campaign using an eflyer or just create an eflyer in general, follow these steps:

Log onto your account and click the Eflyer icon on your dashboard.

You will be asked to fill in your listing details. Fill in all of the info and details as it will then auto populate on your template and also be saved when your virtual tour is auto created. Once the information is complete you will see the continue button appear. Click the button to arrive at the template library.

Take the time to look at the templates available and choose the one that best suits your needs. You can click preview to see a larger image of the template and then click select when you find the one you wish to use.

The blank template will appear on the right complete with your listing details and your contact information. On the left you will see the image box. First click the upload button in the image box to upload your images. For the best virtual tour experience for viewers, upload all of your images here. This will also make it easier to find the image that works best in your eflyer.

To add an image to your eflyer, click on the image you wish to use and drag them into the green image squares. To replace an image, just click on the new one and drag it over the existing one. If you wish to delete an image square, click the red X. To bring the image square back click the green check mark. To edit copy just click on the copy and the text editor will appear. You can add, change and delete copy as well as change the size and color.

Once you are satisfied with your elfyer, click continue to go to the proofing page. Here it is very important that you check every detail to ensure it is correct. You don’t want to send out an eflyer with a glaring mistake. Once it is gone, it cannot be retrieved! On this page you can also email the proof to your client or broker for approval.

Next click the Links tab and here you can add your subject line. You can also add up to three links and you will also see your virtual tour link is already there for you. If you do not wish to use the virtual tour link, highlight it and delete both the title and the link. To add a link just copy it from your browser and paste it into the link field. You can add any title you wish. You can also check the links are working and make sure your subject line works by clicking the Preview button. Once you are happy you can then click continue.

To send your eflyer you have three options: Use our mapblast tool to reach agents in the areas of your choice, upload or add your own contacts, or do both.

To send by mapblast, click the mapblast icon and you will see the map appear with your listing centred in the mapblast tool. This gives a good selection around the area. You can look at the amount of names covered in the area as well as the cost on the right of the map. If you are happy with this, you can click the continue button. If you wish to enlarge or shrink the area selected you can click the white circles on the box and drag them to change the size of the box. To move the area selected click the red box and drag it to the area you wish to select. You can also add a series of targets anywhere in the United States by clicking the “Add another target area button”. You will see a new box appear and you can move it by dragging it and you can also resize it. You can delete a target area by clicking the red X that appears on the target list. Once you are happy, click the continue button.

If you wish to add your own contacts click the contacts icon. You will see a white box appear at the top of the screen. The easiest way to create a list is to copy your email addresses and then paste them into the box. You can then name and save your list which will be saved in your account. Another option is to import or upload your list. Click the button you wish to use to upload your list or import your contacts. Lists can be deleted by clicking the red X and edited by clicking edit. Be certain that you have clicked the little box under send to in order to add any of your lists. You can create a list as small as a single name if you wish. The lists must contain email addresses only. Click continue when you are finished.

You will see a final count and cost once you have completed your target and mailing choices. If all seems well, click the continue button to pay. Just another warning: Once you pay your eflyer can go out as quickly as a few minutes depending on the cue waiting to be mailed. This means it is imperative you are completely 100% certain there are no errors in your eflyer.
