Think Twice Before Signing Up Clients to Your Spam

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

There are a ton of marketing companies who want the business of a Sacramento Realtor. In fact, they want to work with all real estate agents because agents constantly need to market. These companies try to persuade agents to give them their clients email addresses so the agents can market send spam.

What? You say. It's not spam. It's your monthly newsletter. Ha, ha, ha. Well, I have news for you. If your client did not say she wanted your monthly newsletter and you sign her up for it, without her permission, this may greatly annoy her. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Difference Between Target Real Estate Marketing and Spamming.

"I am a human."  Gotta love that sentence, Elizabeth.  Like not being a bot was an excuse!

Hi Elizabeth, I just deleted 620 junk emails - I thought they were supposed to automatically disappear in 10 days - maybe they do, but the amount of spam is unbelieveable-  Poor Janey will learn that most humans do not appreciate spam

  , great posting about the "spam" concerns with the 3rd party vendors working our Contact mgmt and other marketing tools.  Sorry to heat that AR plays with your "drip posts"...

Elizabeth, it should not be automatic, you need to ask permission.   After they close on a home doesn't always mean they want to hear how the market is doing.

Myrl Jeffcoat Well, that's why I told her she should know better. Since she is equipped with human rational thought processes, or we would so hope.

Mary Douglas I do not know why these start-ups businesses don't solicit brand new agents. That's their best audience. People without back-ups and oodles of contacts with personal experience.

Joan Cox I do not bug my clients or set up drip campaigns for them as I would object to it myself, LOL. I stay in touch as some of them subscribe to my daily blog. And I do try to send out holiday cards at the end of the year.

Also, if they can't remember my name, I didn't do a good job. That has never happened.
