Why Newsletters Need to Be Part of Your Marketing Plan

Posted by Reamark Marketing on Feb 28th, 2017

Have you mailed real estate newsletters to your farm lately? With our great selection of newsletter designs, the process has never been easier! If you haven’t yet included these mailings in your real estate marketing, now is the perfect time to add them to your marketing plan for a few reasons.

Become the Local Expert

Newsletters help you show your farm that you’re the authority in the area. Highlighting community events, local businesses, and attractions illustrates to potential real estate clients that you have intimate knowledge of the area. After you’ve established your authority, clients will be contacting you for your expert home evaluation.

In addition to the included recipes and helpful articles that already come with the newsletters, you can use the two large customizable areas to offer a free home evaluation or discuss current financing options that are available. You could also have a list of local resources for the neighborhood, like plumbers, landscapers and popular restaurants. Finally, make sure to include all your credentials and just sold properties, so your readers can see all that you’ve achieved. By incorporating elements like these, you establish yourself as the local real estate thought leader.

Build Trust

When you send marketing newsletters on a consistent basis, your farm will see that you’re a real player in the local real estate market. When you send out your quarterly mailing, you help your recipients connect with you and your business. After a time, they will expect to find your newsletter in their mailbox. If you’ve made sure the content is timely and relevant, your readers will eagerly look forward to receiving and reading your mailing each time. This build up of trust helps you form a bond with your readers, and makes your name more memorable when it comes time for them to buy or sell property.

Become a Presence in Their Home

When you have an interesting newsletter, your recipients will look forward to sitting down and reading it. In the meantime, you become a presence in the home, sitting on the coffee table or kitchen table while they relax or have a meal. This helps to keep your name in front of your potential clients in a similar way to calendars and sports schedules. Providing great resources might even spark family conversation about an upcoming event or home tip you’ve provided.

Newsletters are a tried and true method of marketing that really work. Why not get started now with your newsletter marketing plan? There has never been a better time!

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.
