Quick Takeaways

  • Make your direct mail marketing campaign more effective by choosing a neighborhood where no one agent is the go-to. Direct mail works wonders to create a hometown feel that so many buyers are looking for, and you can become that agent by choosing the right neighborhood.
  • Stay consistent! It takes time to create relationships, trust, and get responses. On average it takes “8.4 contacts within a 30-day or less timeframe to get people to remember your name.”
  • Make sure your marketing material is typ0 free! Though this may seem like obvious advice, a well-done layout, professional logo, and edited text goes a long way in creating a sense of professionalism.
