opening statement, letters will grab their attention and entice them to read and learn more.

subtle way to bring up problems and offer solutions. If you know about a
specific real estate problem that your customers are experiencing

up prospects and prepare them for telephone solicitation calls. They
are an effective way to introduce products and services to people that
are not aware of your business and can tweak their interest by showing
them how they can benefit from what you offer. A follow-up phone call
could seal the deal.
- Real Estate Agent Letters are an
unobtrusive way to advertise, as they allow people to make their own
decisions to learn as much or as little as they want to about your
products or services.
- Letters are a
perfect way to elicit immediate action. You can prompt your reader to act
quickly by ending your letter with a
strong statement, such as: Pick Up the Phone and Call Now! or Tear Off
the Order Form and Send It in Today!
- Letters are measurable and
can provide instant feedback. When letters are coupled with a strong
call to action, businesses can easily gauge their effectiveness.
- Finally, letters are reusable. You
can create one letter and mail it to your entire database of prospects
and customers. With mail merge capabilities you can personalize each letter with the name of the person
you're mailing letters to.
