Newsletters

By
Real Estate Agent with Prestige Properties

Just sent out my May newsletter.  As much trouble as it is, I have found that clients truly enjoy getting the newsletter.  I send it out to almost 400 people on a monthly basis and about 85% get opened every month.  It is so much easier than traditional mailing and it is great exposure as often it will be forwarded to a friend.

If you don't do a newsletter, I strongly encourage you to look into it.  It is a tremendous marketing tool that only requires a few hours a month.

Tell me about your newsletter, we can share ideas and maybe get some good new ones in the process.

Thanks

We send out a newsletter each month to our clients. We have many great tips and real estate investment advice from my Network of professionals. It gives them a chance to be the featured vendor of the month. They give away specials. Keep it consistent and fun

It is the cost and the time it takes to send a newletter that prevents me from doing it every month.

The newsletter is emailed.  Each email has a forward feature as well as a subscribe feature.  I am suprised to see how many newsletters are forwarded and then new subscribers.  I see where Fernando mentioned the time and cost.  It takes me only a few hours to put the newsletter together and with companes like IContact the cost is about $10.00 a month.  To me that is worth the new business it generates.  It also keeps my company in front of former clients and often they forward it to a friend that is thinking about buying or selling.  I frequently get emails from former clients letting me know they forwarded it to a friend so they could have my contact info.

It is definately worth the time and because I write them myself, they can include personal information like a congratulations note to new buyers or new listing announcements.  Sellers love getting a newsletter that has thier property featured on it.

Try it!  Trust me!
