SupportFrequently Asked Questions

What is Cmail?

  • Cmail is an email marketing network, designed specifically for the commercial real estate industry
  • Recipients (professionals, users, tenants, investors, etc.) set preferences to receive messages based on their interests
  • Senders create e-brochures and send HTML email to target audiences with matching preferences

How is Cmail different from traditional broadcast email?

Cmail differs from traditional email in numerous ways, including:

  • Broadcasts to tens of thousands of recipients with matching preferences
  • Sends messages in an attractive format with embedded photos, graphics, and links
  • Allows you to track responses to messages sent, and capture leads
  • Works with Internet Service Providers to ensure delivery
  • Is CAN-SPAM compliant and offers recipients convenient methods to unsubscribe or change preferences

How does Cmail differ from other e-marketing services?

  • Integrated with Catylist. Import your listing data to Cmail in a single click, or design your Cmail from scratch
  • More contacts. Cmail maintains its own network of tens of thousands of users—significantly more qualified recipients than rival services
  • Better format. Choose from a variety of attractive templates, or create your own to fit your company’s brand image
  • Enhanced Tracking. Track responses and capture leads from web-based inquiries
  • No Flash animation. We firmly believe that motion graphics, audio soundtracks, and large file attachments do not work well with email marketing
