What is Click2Mail?
Click2Mail is a quick, easy, affordable way to create and mail postcards, brochures, letters, and more. Over the years, it’s grown in popularity with real estate and home services professionals with over 9.1 million products mailed and over 420 thousand customers served.
Click2Mail's free-to-use Mailing Online Publisher offers a new approach to utilizing direct mail. Its Web browser-based tools provide all you need to manage your lists and to create, personalize, and proof your mailing pieces.
Real estate and home services professionals love that Click2Mail completely eliminates the need for sorting, labeling, applying postage, and delivery to a post office - they’ll actually do it for you for just a little more than you would normally pay for the postage alone.

Mailing Lists with Comprehensive Insights
Connecting with prospects on your mailing list is where the rubber meets the road. In order to craft compelling messaging that grabs your prospect's attention, you need to understand their wants, needs, pains and desires.
That’s why with each list you create, you get deep insights into each list's profile. You’ll better understand the commonalities of a list for both the property and property owners.
Simply click 'Insights' on your list to learn more:
After you click Insights, you’ll see obvious and not-so-obvious insights and details about properties and property owners that you simply can’t get anywhere else:
- Snapshot (overview) of Property Owners making up the list
- Owner Type
- Education Level
- Marital Status
Within Property Insights, you get a snapshot overview of your list as well as a visual representation of the following property details:
- Snapshot (overview) of Properties making up the list
- Property type
- Owner occupied
- Transaction volume per month
- Estimated equity
- Assessed value
- Estimated tax rate
Between the criteria you select to build your lists and the deep insights you get for every list you create, you’ll have information and data about your audience that you can't get from the industry’s typical ‘flat-file’ approach.
With this new powerful data at the ready, writing tailored cold calling scripts, craft compelling marketing messaging for mailers, and designing eye-catching personalized creative assets will be easier than ever.
Autofill Click2Mail with High-Quality Leads

Better yet, when a mailing list is updated, you can set alerts so that you get notified by a push notification and/or email when new opportunities become available.

No one else in the industry offers anything close to this capability.
Click2Mail Integration with PropertyRadar Use Cases
Use Case #1: Real Estate Agents
With the PropertyRadar and Click2Mail integration, real estate agents can find motivated sellers to meet their short-term revenue goals while also learning more about their audience to meet their long-term, real estate farming goals.
Some examples of different criteria that you can use to identify leads in your target market include:
- Specific geographic areas (down to individual neighborhoods or streets)
- Recently listed properties
- Recently sold properties
- Absentee owners
- Cash buyers
Choose your location by city, zip code, or use the polygon tool to draw a custom perimeter (as seen below) around the neighborhood or market you want to target.
Use Case #2: Mortgage Brokers
Using PropertyRadar, mortgage brokers can target property owners who are most likely ready to refinance, eliminate PMI, need cash out, want a reverse mortgage, borrow for investments, and much more.
Some criteria a mortgage broker might want to include are:
- Owner equity information
- Open loans
- Borrowing history
- Loan details
- Length of ownership
Use Case #3: Home Services
There are certain traits that make some homes a better prospect than others when it comes to home services. For instance, a recently purchased home might be a good leading indicator of someone in need of your services. Prospects in higher income areas may provide larger opportunities. Or perhaps, homeowners with lots of equity may be more likely to invest in home updates or upgrades.
Examples of criteria a home services business might include are:
- New homeowner (purchased in last 30 days)
- 50%+ equity
- 2,500+ square feet
- No HVAC system
- Includes pool
- Large lot
If your business is HVAC, you’re targeting homeowners of properties without HVAC systems. First step is identifying homes without HVAC systems. In this case, we’ll navigate to Criteria> Property > Characteristics and select HVAC where we can then select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to whether a property has a heating, ventilation, or air conditioning system.
Using the ZIP code of95035 for Milpitas, CA, we discover 1,997 homes in this ZIP code that do not have an HVAC system and might be receptive to installing one. Add additional criteria like 40% or more equity and now your chances of selling your services just improved.
Conversely, you can identify homes that do have HVAC systems and would likely be open to your maintenance and repair services. The possibilities are endless.
