With our ‘Advanced Search‘ option, you can easily and quickly identify records under the ‘Land Deals‘, ‘House Deals‘, and ‘Buyers List‘ section based on multiple AND/OR search criteria.
Using this feature you can identify records based on almost any record field in the system and by adding a combination of custom record filter rules such as Equal To, Not Equal To, In, Not In, Less Than, Greater Than, Between, Is Empty, Is Not Empty, etc. to the search.
Advanced Searches can also be saved and accessed under the ‘Reports> Saved Searches‘ area.

You can set up to 3 company emails in the Investment Dominator system under the ‘Customize> Company Information‘ screen.
The ‘Company Email‘ field is the default email address that a user can set for the company. The system sends notifications to this email address when someone fills out the forms on the ‘Sell Your Land‘, ‘Sell Your House‘ or ‘Contact Us‘ pages of your ‘Buying Site‘.
This email address is also used as the ‘From/ Reply’email address in the notification email that is sent out to the owners when they submit the ‘Sell Your Land’ or ‘Sell Your House‘ forms IF they include their email address (optional) in the form submission.
Offer Email (Optional)
The ‘Offer Email‘ address is printed by default on the P.S. line of your Offer Cover Letters.

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.
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.
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.

The ‘Buyers List’ section on the Investment Dominator is where we manage the disposition or marketing/sales side of the business. Jack Bosch talks about this in the Land Profit Generator training program in Session 16: Internet Marketing Basics.
Basically, the ‘Buyers List’ a list of prospects that you grow, refine and nurture over time. Since real estate is not an impulse buy, it normally takes a few touches before you sell a property to someone and the ‘Buyers List’ helps you keep track of these people while they are in that decision-making period.
Here are some helpful articles that talk about the ‘Buyers List’ in more detail, but we also recommend that you watch the Land Profit Generator Module 16 to get the overall concept of this important list.
