4 Things to Include on Your Marketing Postcard

Posted by Reamark Marketing on Feb 21st, 2017

If you haven’t yet ordered your print marketing postcards for your real estate business, get ready to. EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail) postcards can generate mountains of customer leads for you and your agency. Your biggest challenge will be how to organize your new call list.

EDDM is a service provided by the USPS where you can have your postcards delivered to every door on a route without having to put a name or address on it. When you combine this service with ReaMark’s print marketing postcards, that’s a winning combination too good to pass up. When you order your custom postcards or pre-designed postcards at ReaMark, be sure to include the following for best results.

1. Your Professional Photo

Homebuyers and sellers like to see whom they will be spending their time with. When you include your professional photo on your postcard, new customers will be able to see that you’re professional and friendly looking. For the best photos, hire a professional photographer. Selfies won’t deliver the professional lighting and other effects you’ll need.

2. Knowledge About the Area

Buyers and sellers like to know they’re working with someone who is familiar with the area. Prove that you’re a “local” by including some pertinent information about the neighborhood, such as information about a local house that just sold, or trends in the local real estate market.

3. A Line About Your Expertise

Don’t forget to include something about what makes you the expert. Under your name, mention how many years you’ve been in the real estate business or any certifications or awards you have. This will tell buyers and sellers that when they work with you, they’re working with an expert.

3. Lots of Color

Your postcard should be bright and colorful. Remember that it won’t be the only thing your potential customers receive in the mail that day, so you want it to really stand out. Use images with lots of color and positive imagery to entice recipients to read it.

4. All the Ways to Contact You

Be sure to include all your contact information; not just your phone number. Remember that different people prefer different ways to contact professionals. Some may prefer text, others email and still others like calling on the phone. Let your customer decide by including all the ways they can get in touch with you.

Print marketing postcards and real estate newsletters are made even better when you remember these essential elements to include. Get your postcards today at RealMark.

New Real Estate Licensee? Business Building Tips You Cannot Afford to Ignore

Posted by Reamark Marketing on Jan 31st, 2017

Successful New Real Estate Agent As a new real estate licensee, you already know that obtaining the license is just the first step in building a professional career that can be both personally and financially rewarding. But you also know that you need to have a plan for gaining market recognition and establishing yourself as the trusted real estate professional in your area and the use of well-chosen real estate promotional materials should be part of that plan.

How Real Estate Promotional Materials Can Help New Agents

For most Americans today, the family home is likely to be the most expensive investment they will make in their lifetime. Because buying or selling a home represents such a significant portion of a family’s overall net worth, buyers and sellers want to be sure they are working with an agent they know and trust to take care of their interests. As a new agent, building this type of bond with the prospective clients you want to serve begins with making sure that your name becomes recognized and associated with real estate services throughout your market area.

A good way to build this type of name recognition is through the use of quality real estate promotional materials capable of offering 24/7 exposure. Items like calendars, postcards, and notepads allows the new agent to easily place their name and contact information in front of each potential buyer and seller in their farming area. Unlike email drip campaigns and phone calls that have no real staying power and risk annoying potential clients, hand-delivering small, but useful items to each home in your farm is a great way to introduce yourself and make a positive, no-pressure first impression. Since these are items that most households will find useful, your name and contact information is likely to remain in their home, boosting your name recognition each time they use the item.

Getting Maximum Impact from the Use of Real Estate Promotional Materials

Building name recognition is not an overnight process. Instead, it requires a continued effort to make sure that new agents see maximum benefits. To do this effectively, new agents should devise a workable plan to visit each home in their market area, introduce themselves to the occupant, and offer a small gift, such as a notepad or memo board. While this may sound like a huge undertaking, setting aside just an hour or two each day for walking your farm area is an easy way to achieve your goal.

Once new agents have initially canvassed their entire farm area, it is important to continue to remain in contact with each household. This can be done in an affordable, efficient way by setting up a monthly or quarterly postcard mailing. Reamark, a leading supplier of high-quality real estate promotional materials, offers specially trained order consultants to answer questions about using real estate promotional materials and help new real estate agents design an automatic, customized postcard mailing program that can be scaled to fit most any budget.

3 Real Estate Marketing Strategies to Grow Your Business

Posted by Reamark Marketing on Jan 8th, 2017

Real estate professionals who have been in the business for a few years often experience feelings that their marketing is becoming stagnant and no longer capable of generating the leads they need for growth. This is especially true in markets that are highly competitive or those that are being impacted by economic trends capable of affecting the local real estate market. But slowing business growth can also occur when agents fail to maintain quality contact with their current and past clients. Allowing this to happens causes agents to fail in maximizing the potential for referrals from these groups, and effectively losing out on valuable leads for new business. If you are an agent feeling the impact of local market trends or one who is struggling to maintain the level of contact required for good business growth, real estate marketing postcards can be an excellent, cost-effective vehicle to help you rev up your lead generation machine and restore and maintain healthy levels of business growth.

Strategy One: Using Postcards for Realtors to Renew Contact with Past Clients

Past sellers and buyers are a prospecting gold mine because you have already demonstrated your real estate skills by helping them successfully buy or sell property in the past. Maintaining contact with them through a quarterly mailing of postcards for realtors is a great way to make sure they continue to remember you and refer their friends, neighbors, relatives, and coworkers to you.

Strategy Two: Using Postcards to Increase Name Recognition in Your Farm Area

Farming is another marketing activity that can be made much more effective by utilizing a series of monthly contacts through the use of informational real estate marketing postcards after your initial meeting. A long established marketing rule has proven that successful marketing requires at least seven contacts before most people are likely to begin to really recognize your name and think about doing business with you.

Strategy Three: Instituting a Postcard Campaign for Lead Generation

Maintaining contact with new prospects, especially those who call to find out more about one of your listings or those with general questions about the buying and selling process can get lost in the rush to service active buyers and sellers. But busy agents who find an effective way to remain in contact with these future buyers and sellers are working to fill their lead pipeline for years to come. Choosing to contact these prospects through a quarterly postcard campaign for lead generation purposes is a very easy and affordable way to make this happen.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, ReaMark, a market leader in real estate promotional supplies, can help. Take a moment today and contact one of our specially trained customer service specialists for information on special value options and helpful tips on customizing your real estate marketing to get the best possible results.

Agents: Use These Smart Marketing Ideas to Make 2017 Your Best Year Yet!

Posted by Reamark Marketing on Dec 29th, 2016

Real Estate AgentsWhether you have been in the business for awhile or have just become a licensed real estate agent, you already know that the real estate industry is constantly changing. Local and national economic trends, politics, and even the weather can have a profound and immediate effect on the number of houses that sell and the amount of income you earn.

The most successful agents in the real estate business have learned to combat these influences with effective marketing strategies to maintain relationships with current and past clients as they consistently generate and develop new business prospects. If you are ready to make 2017 your best year ever, these smart marketing tips will help you take maximum advantage of those time-tested marketing strategies to expand your business and keep it growing, year after year.

The Importance of Establishing & Maintaining Regular Contact

Growing your business requires careful nurturing of your relationship with all current and past clients and any new prospective clients that you come into contact with. This is done most effectively by establishing and maintaining a program that uses regular points of contact to help your name and brand become so familiar to them that they will instantly think of you whenever they or someone they know mentions buying or selling a home.

Contact Ideas That Your Clients & Prospects Will Welcome 

In order to be effective, any methods that you use for contacting your clients and prospective clients has to be both welcome and useful. Cold calls are annoying and most unsolicited email is never opened by the recipient. This is why it makes sense to instead choose a quality direct mail program that provides information and items of value to the recipient.

To do this effectively, look around your market area and determine what information might be most helpful to the residents who live there. Then use this knowledge to design a targeted, customized direct mail program that will specifically appeal to the area. For example, if many of the residents follow a particular sports team, a schedule of those sporting events is an idea for one such mailing, which you would schedule to send out shortly before the team’s season begins.

Other useful ideas to use for maintaining regular points of contact include, gardening seeds or tips in the spring, home repair tips in the summer, and local school schedules and information in the fall. As the year winds down, a beautiful wall or magnetic calendar is a wonderful gift that is certain to be kept and used throughout the coming year.

For additional ideas and helpful assistance in setting up the best possible direct mail campaign to give your business a well-deserved boost in 2017, contact Reamark today. As a proven leader in the real estate marketing products business, Reamark’s order consultants are specially trained to help you select and develop a marketing campaign that will be welcomed and remembered by all your current and past clients, while also helping to attract and hold the attention of prospective clients.
