It is easy to launch a direct mail campaign, through Command, which will be sent out for you using RealMailers. The great thing is, we have some pre-made templates, that allow you to fill in the information you want to send, while looking great.
To utilize these dynamic templates and launch a direct mail campaign:
1. Log in to https://agent.kw.com with your Keller Williams login credentials.
2. Click the Campaigns icon,, on the left side bar.
3. Click Create a New Campaign at the top right of the page.
If your initial Campaigns dashboard does not appear like the image above, don't worry - everybody will have a different dashboard depending on their usage of Campaigns in the past 3 months. There are three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced
4. Choose Direct Mail.
1. Enter the campaign name in the field provided, select your Marketing Campaign Goal, and click Create Campaign.
If you did not select the "Advertise Listing" goal, you can skip this section.
Since the Campaigns applet has a connection with Keller Cloud's listing feed a listing panel will appear, when the Advertise Listing campaign goal is selected. You can search your listings and select the one you want to feature:
1. Search for the property you want to feature. You can use the search tools such as the address search and filters at the top right of the search page to narrow your results.
2. Click Select once you found your desired property. This will load the listing details and photos into the form, for you to utilize in the ad.
3. If you need to change the property, click the pencil icon and the listing panel will appear.
The name of the campaign and the goal can be changed at anytime while setting up the campaign. Click Save if any changes are made.
1. In the Content section, click the Select Template option and select the desired template from the drop down.
1. In the Text section, the information fields will be titled differently depending on the goal that has been selected.
- If you selected Advertise Listing as a goal and added a listing, you can edit any of the listing details, including the ability to change the selected listing.
- If you selected any another non listing related goal like Brand Awareness, Attract Talent, etc. you can enter in any information to be included on the postcard.
The photo that has been selected will be printed on the postcard. If you selected the "Advertise Listing" goal you can use the photo in the KWLS listing - they will already be populated in the photo section.
If you selected another goal you upload any image you'd like from your computer files. Before you upload a photo, use these image guidelines to ensure high-quality printing. If the listing photo is not within these guidelines, an error message such as "listing picture is invalid" or "low resolution photo" will display. If this occurs, replace the photo.
