6 YEARS LATER after NO communication..... "TIME FOR DRIP CAMPAIGN."

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Compass, formerly RE/MAX WHP 0524642

Great conversation with Betty lastweek about re marketing ... & just how incredibly obnoxious it is to watch our fellow agents waste their hard earned money on some of the most ridiculous forms of advertising.

 

Betty and I got into a small argument with an agent who thought it would be a clever idea to take "all her past clients" that she hadn't communicated with in SIX YEARS and add them on some b.s. drip campaign. 

 

It's TOO LATE.

 

By year 2 your past clients remember something about you, but your name probably isn't it. After 3 years they may remember some details about the closing and after 5, you might as well consider yourself a stranger. Maybe even stranger danger depending on that glamour shot that you still haven't updated.

You shouldn't expect to light up your past clients (after not communicating for 6 years) with an email drip campaign and expect any type of results.  Period.  You should nurture the clients you just closed and use creativity to keep youself in front of them for as long as you are in business.

Unfortunately, you are mostly correct. The time to start communication is as soon as possible. Exceptions are far and few between.

Oh, I dunno, it would be better, of course, if she had communicated with her clients all along, but at least some communication years later is better than no communication ever. People often choose the first agent they hear from. Even if they don't know the agent. In this case, at least they had heard of her and might remember her.
