Company Emails

You can set up to 3 company emails in the Investment Dominator system under the ‘Customize> Company Information‘ screen.

Company Email

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.

NOTE: If you do not configure a unique ‘Offer Email‘ address then the system will just use your ‘Company Email‘ address instead.

Selling Site Email (Optional)

When someone fills out the Property Interest Form on a Property Listing posted on your Selling Site the ‘Selling Site Email‘ address is sent a notification about the inquiry.

NOTE: If you do not configure a unique ‘Selling Site Email” address then the system will just use your ‘Company Email‘ address instead.

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.
