Blast emails are one of the main ways to get your information across to your prospective clients, current clients, and past clients. To create a Blast email is fairly simple, In this article, we will go over how to get your blast created, contacts added, and how to schedule and send.


Creating the Blast

To start creating a blast, the first thing you'll want to do is to log in to your myTRIBUS account. Once logged in, you will want to go into the Marketing Area. Depending on your brokerage, it may be named differently, for our example, it is called "Marketing" under the CRM Section.

Once in Marketing, Click on the "Blast Marketing" or "Blasts".

Now that we are in Blast Marketing, you will see a list of your Previously sent blasts, if you have not sent any blasts, then you may not see any listed at all. To start creating the blast, you will click the + sign on the left-hand side of the screen:

Once you've clicked the + sign, You will see a box pop-up titled "Create Blast", here you can select, and preview, the many blast templates you have available to you from your brokerage!

Select the template you wish to use, and you can begin editing.

Editing a Blast Email

Once you've created your Blast email, it's time to start making edits to it. The first thing you'll want to do is add a name to your blast, so you can find it easier, generally, it's a good idea to give it a name that will let you know what the blast is, Short, sweet and simple is the way to go. The second thing to do is to add a subject for the email that your receivers will get:

Once you've done that, click the "Edit" button to start editing.

Attaching a Property

For the most part, each blast already includes many areas called "Dynamic Tags". These tags will automatically pull in information into a blast based on the User assigned to the blast (You) and the property(s) attached to the blast. This allows you to pull in your contact information, profile image, and other information related to you. This also allows you to pull in property details and property images automatically, without you having to put them in all yourself!

To attach a property is fairly easy:

Once you've attached your property, any included Dynamic fields or image areas will auto-populate with the property's information! If you are utilizing a Blast Template that allows for multiple properties, each one will automatically fill in their respective dynamic fields and image areas based on the order you added the properties.

Assigning a User

Assigning a user, just like adding a property is very straightforward. Once you have your blast created, you can add an Assigned user so that information not only is sent under that user's profile, but allows for Dynamic fields to be auto-populated, and the users tagged contacts, and individual contacts to be loaded into the blast as recipients.

Super User, Administrator, Staff: To add an assigned user, Click on the Settings Tab, and use the "Owner" area to set the assigned user. If you are sending a blast on behalf of another agent, such as sending to a list of other agents, you can set the Owner to (Or the user the contacts you wish to send to are under), and then set the "Optional Details" to the agent's Name and email of who you wish to send as.

After putting in the user that is sending the email, you will be able to edit the content of the email within the rich editor. You'll then click the create button in the upper right-hand corner to create the blast. 

Next, you'll go to the recipients tab and either add individual contacts with the "+" sign or you can use the "rules" button, enable the rules, and then either check "all assigned to me" or uncheck the box to pull in by your tagged contacts.

The last step will have you decide the day and time you would like to schedule the blast email to go out. You can pick however far in advance you would like to send it. Once you click schedule, the blast will be scheduled to go out.
