How to Export your Buyers List Records

The Investment Dominator software stores your data securely in the cloud, but we understand that some of our clients want to be able to personally back up their contact records from time to time.

The best way to do this is to use the built-in “Export” function to create a .csv file of your records.

Here’s how to do it.

After logging into your Investment Dominator app, click on the “Buyers List” tab and then click on the “Export” button.

The .csv file will automatically download, and you can open it using Microsoft Excel.

If this is an option that you would like to take advantage of, be sure make a note on your calendar to export the data regularly so the .csv file you have as a backup is as up to date as possible.

Phone System And Call Center

In order to build your land business in a scalable manner, we recommend that you set up your phone system with a company called Ring Central.

Ring Central will provide you with options such as custom extensions, directories, automated menus and more. They provide you also with both a local phone number, eFax number, and company toll-free number and sms/texting capabilities for your business.

Click here for more details. Or visit www.LPGphone.com

With Ring Central, you can easily set up a phone system that separates callers from your buying side and your selling side of the business. You can also set up additional extensions for marketing, pre-recorded messages, and even offer processing so that callers get routed to the right person or agent depending on their need.

Call Center

Even with your phone system may be setup through Ring Central you’ll want to consider outsourcing the actual call taking/ call processing to a Call Center and for that, we recommend Pat Live. Pat Live not only specializes in processing real estate calls for investors, but they also have experience taking land calls. Sign up through www.LandCalls.com to add a call center to your land business.

How To Customize The Look of Your Built-In Websites

In this two-part video tutorial we explain how to customize the look of your built-in websites using both the basic customization controls that are built into the Investment Dominator Admin Console under the ‘Customize> Website Settings – Buying‘ and ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling’ areas as well as in part two, some advanced customizations you can make to your websites using CSS scripts.

NOTE: We do not recommend that you make CSS customizations to your websites and if you do, you do so at your own risk. If your websites become unresponsive or display an undesired look after you make your custom CSS modifications, you can remove your modifications from the ‘Customize> Website Settings> Website Header Tracking Code‘ area to reset the sites back to their default styles.

NOTE: In the 2nd part of this video we do not cover displays issues on mobile devices or tablets. You will need to make sure your CSS coder accounts for this and adds media queries to the style script that will adjust the look based on the screen size.

How To Re-Order Statuses and Custom Statuses

If you’ve created Custom Statuses in the system then chances are you would also like to re-order your status such that they make sense in your new customized Deal Flow.

By default, new statuses will display at the bottom of the Status selection list. But you can change the order of your statuses (both default and custom) under the ‘Customize> Custom Stages and Statuses> Sort Status’ screen.

Simply click and drag the statuses around on the preview screen to change the order they should appear in your lists.

Then click the blue ‘Save‘ button to save your changes.

How To Remove A Property Listing From Your Selling Site

Your property listings on your ‘Selling Site‘ is automatically generated from your property record data. The listing will generate by default once your property record has moved to the ‘Complete Ready To Sell‘ Status (for land) or the ‘Open Escrow‘ Status (for houses) AND if you have at least a ‘Sale Price‘ saved under the ‘Property Listing‘ section of the property record.

If you would like to remove the listing from your selling site…

  • Open the ‘Edit‘ screen for your property record from your Admin Console
  • Scroll down to the ‘Property Listing‘ section and set the ‘Listing Status‘ to “Private“.
  • Click the ‘Update Record‘ option to save the changes.

System Email Notifications

IMPORTANT REQUEST:

The internet service providers (Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo…) are drowning more and more in spam. As a result they are taking more and more action to protect their users – YOU.

On a daily basis thousands of emails are being rejected directly and are not even allowed onto the server.

That means, the emails never arrive in your account – not even in your SPAM folder

To prevent that, I need you to urgently mark us as “Safe Senders” in your email program.

Otherwise it’s very likely that you won’t even receive over 60% of all my emails including our instructional videos.

If you haven’t yet done it, please whitelist us asap, or add the following emails to your Contacts list (for example with Outlook, Gmail or Yahoo):


Next, when you added our email to your Safe Senders List, or to your Contacts, please press REPLY and send a quick message back with just the words “I marked you as safe” or something like that.

That will also improve your deliverability rates a LOT, because your email provider now sees that you don’t just receive emails but you also answer (so there is back and forth communications which they love)

Another factor that can impact your delivery rates is: if you no longer open the emails you receive from me (for example you might say “I will collect these emails and look at them later”…

Or, you never interact with us (meaning you never click the actual links, or open or even read the emails, or you simply open and close them right away), then your providers will classify that emails form us as “non-important” and “not interesting” and will over time not show you these emails anymore.

So if you want to continue to receive emails from me, make sure you follow the instructions above.

Thank you!

Email Deliverability – SPF Record For Your Custom Buying Site Domain

We use a service called SMTP.com to relay our notification emails.

As long as you have configured your buying site’s domain with a www CNAME record to point to investmentdominator.com as recommended you shouldn’t have to make any adjustments in regards to the email notification system.

However, if you are pointing your domain to our servers another way then you must configure a TXT record with a TXT Value of :
