I don't read marketing pieces unless they are from other real estate agents. I like to see what other agents are doing.

Marketing pieces would have to be very compelling for me to read much past the first few lines. I'm not sure a gimmicky question would do it for me.

Maybe two or three out of a 100 to 150 daily have great subject lines. Out of those that pass muster in a week's time there could be one or two which were completely read.
