Why Direct Mail?

You might be wondering why we’re doing not just an episode about direct mail, but a whole series on the subject. The answer is simple: direct mail works. Direct mail for real estate is part of a larger marketing plan that will help you to build consistency within your business. 

While Carrot helps you to stack bricks and generate inbound leads using SEO, direct mail and other offline marketing channels will help to activate the demand within your potential customers. In this series, we will answer all of your questions about direct mail for real estate including: 

  • How often should I send my mail pieces?
  • How much should I spend on direct mail campaigns?
  • What should be on my mail pieces?
  • What shouldn’t be on my mail pieces?
  • How to build a great list?
  • How is your team handling calls?
  • When should I retarget my campaign?

When you are armed with the answers to these questions, you can easily close 5, 10, even 20 more deals per year! We’ll show you how just by making a few tweaks to the marketing you’re doing now, you will be able to close more deals without even trying! 

Start With One Marketing Method

When you are building your marketing plan, you’ll want to find one channel and go all-in. Own it. Master it. Once you do, you begin to stack more and more channels, building consistency, predictability, and momentum within your business.

Our marketing plan generator is a completely free tool that will help you to get your marketing dialed in. All you have to do is answer a few general questions about your business, and you’ll gain some valuable insight no matter where you are in your business. 

Add Some Legs To Your Marketing Stool

 If you have your online presence down, start your offline marketing to generate the demand. If you have the offline thing down, amplify it with your online presence. SEO will help you attract the most motivated people, collect the most revenue, and close the most deals However, direct mail for real estate is all about the volume. When you have the two channels working together for you, you’re capturing leads from all angles

My Challenge For Your Direct Mail Marketing

Whenever someone gets a mailpiece that sparks their interest, more often than not, the first thing they will do is Google you. The same goes for cold-calling. When a strange number pops up, the first thing people do it look the number up to find out who is calling them. In most cases, looking up the phone number will lead to one of those “who called me” websites, often listing your phone number as spam. 

My challenge to you is to take a look at a recent mailpiece and write down anything identifiable about your company. For example, the company name, your name, the phone number listed on there, and even your tag line. If you are using a number of different tracking numbers, make sure to have all of those phone numbers written out on your contact page.

Doing so will help your contact page start to rank for that phone number as opposed to just all of the “who called me” websites. You will be able to control the conversation when someone looks you up instead of a third-party website. By refining your marketing and amping up your online credibility, you’ll close more deals and generate more revenue.
