With the Real Estate industry always evolving, moving at a faster pace than ever before and with consistently strong competition in the marketplace, it’s safe to say that being one step ahead and utilizing your time efficiently and effectively has never been more necessary. One way to capitalize on being at the forefront of those in your farm is by direct mailer postcards and with MAXA, this is achieved easily and effortlessly. Maddy Davis - Senior Brand and Product designer at MAXA takes us through the simple to follow steps that help you send out your direct mailer postcards to your chosen market at the most opportune and convenient time for you.
So, let’s get started: Login into your dashboard to see your previously saved designs. To the left on this screen, under My Designs, you will see different groups of designs. By opening one of these, it will allow you to find a particular category that you’re looking for. In this case, you are choosing postcards, so you can pick that category and decide on the size you want to go with. By clicking a template you like, you can then go ahead and create a design.
When the template opens up, you will see that some of your information is auto populated in the design, you can check this is all correct and then when you are happy with the design, you just save your work. There will be various pop ups which act as reminders for you to ensure everything is as it should be, for example, that everything is spelt correctly.
Now, once the design is saved, just click the print option on the top navigation and this will take you into MAXA’S print shop where you are able to view all the design specifications and by scrolling down below the actual design, you will discover different options for your product.
As we are focusing on designing direct mailer postcards, you may wish to choose to send them to yourself, so you would take care of their distribution. In this case, choose the paper weight you require and continue to scroll down to see the quantity ranges. Decide how many you want within a particular range and add to your cart.
You have 2 different postage choices: Bulk postage, or first class, the former, although more cost effective, necessitates a minimum order of 200 postcards and the latter is faster with a minimum of 100 postcards.
The other available option is to choose the mailing list, which means that either MAXA takes care of it for you or you can schedule a future date that is convenient for you when they will go to print and be mailed out.
If you require EDDM (Every Door Direct Mailing), there is an email address for our print partner, One Step, above the postage types and they can arrange that for you.
