What if you could just buy a post card and get it into the hands of the public without spending a lot of money?
The folks at Real Estatepostcards.com were kind enough to show me how you could make your own postcard.
Here are some tips:1.
Use the “I’m Real Estate” postcard templateYou could use the template from this site, which includes a few of the templates from the “Paid to Post” postcards and also includes some new templates for more affordable price points.
It looks pretty easy to make.2.
Create a cover letterIf you are posting on your website or blog, use a nice, professionally printed envelope and include a letter stating your name and a link to your website and/or blog.
This letter is a perfect place to announce your availability to buy a poster, or to give the impression that you have a real estate business.3.
Include a description of the postcard You can use a short or detailed description of your postcard in the body of the email.
I like to give people an idea of what the postcards are about and how to find them.
For example, in my case, I use the phrase “Picked up by an Agent” and use the word “agent” as the first three words.4.
Send the email to the addresses on your card.
I recommend sending it to your contact email addresses on the post cards, so you don’t need to email your contact person again.5.
Make sure you don,t just put a link in the email so people will get to see it.
You might want to include a link that leads to a page with some information about the poster or website.6.
Make a list of the agents and agents-to-beYou can also include a list with the agents who you think will be interested in purchasing your poster or your website.
You can also use a spreadsheet to organize all the contacts you have and who you have contacted about the posters.7.
Check the box for “no email confirmation” if you don”t want your agent to have to enter his/her information.8.
Include the email address and phone number of the agent who picked up your poster.9.
Send out the poster!
I like the simple idea of sending out a postcards in a clear, enveloped envelope with the post card number on the front, and a letter from you.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make sure you have your posters in a neat, organized package.
They are the perfect way to introduce your business to the public.
