Effective, Rapid Start Example / How To Use Direct Mail Post Cards to Generate Real Estate Leads

1. Choose a neighborhood to farm; condos, high end homes, country estates, move up homes, etc.

2. Next, design or purchase a series of real estate marketing post cards to start your direct mail campaign.

3. Begin mailing your post cards on a scheduled basis; at least once a month, with special emphasis on holidays.

Practical Application of Direct Mail Post Cards

Design and mail post cards for any priced neighborhood. Let's use a million dollar neighborhood for this example. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s your listing or not, right! Any listing will do, right?? Right!

Remember, you’re part of a Multiple Listing Service and can sell any house listed within your service. You can also advertise and market any and all houses in that system, even if it’s not your own listing. That’s the beauty and advantage of being a part of a Multiple Listing System.

Next, get ready for some leads. Somebody will call or email you wanting to know more. If you’re on top of your game you can get a listing, make an appointment to show the property, find another property for the interested party, or maybe even get a referral.

So, can you see how mailing a couple of hundred high gloss, impressive looking direct mail post cards to a move up neighborhood can increase your business? I can, too!

Wrap Up

A farmer plants a crop and then waters, fertilizes, and nurtures it to harvest. This same concept applies to “farming” neighborhoods via direct mail campaigns.

  • Sending post cards is the “planting” of the crop. 
  •  Monthly mailings are the equivalent of tending to the crop.
  •  And finally, the listings and sales that you’ll get from your farming efforts will be the harvesting of your crop.
