I see lots of agents posting links to other websites to their facebook pages. Why not put a paragraph of that content on a new post in your own website with a link to read the rest of the story from there? That will drive more traffic to your website and get people to see what else you have to offer like a property search, community info, school info and more. Please watch this short video to see how it’s done. Call me with questions, Ron at 925 290-7667[youtube_sc url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOvGZjB6k0A&” rel=”0″]

Email is a daily part of life. Whether receiving updates about a favorite product, reading an online newsletter or finding new tips about homeownership, people and businesses communicate through email every day. The benefit of email lists is thqat they can easily and quickly get messages out to large numbers of fans, past clients and people who sign up to receive it, subscribers.
Email lists allow you to communicate with your referral base, letting them know what is happening in their neighborhood. It might be price changes, favorable loan changes, something happening around the corner. The more you are able to keep in touch, the more likely they will remember you when someone they know is thinking of moving.
Why Email Lists?
Email lists are among the most cost-effective means of communication available and have become a widely used channel for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes.
Top 5 Reasons to Use Email Lists
1. Email Lists Are Quick and Flexible
Agents can quickly send time-sensitive information to a large number of subscribers, fans or past clients worldwide. Email messages provide great flexibility and allow an agent’s unique graphic profile to be used, with images and links to additional resources.
2. Email Lists Have a Wide Reach
Email lists can reach people from around the world without the barriers of geography or time zone. Since email is a part of many people’s daily routine and is receivable on cell and smartphones, recipients can immediately respond to messages.
3. Email Lists Are Cost-Effective
Email lists are one of the most cost-effective tools for today’s communicators. Organizations can get direct feedback, which in turn leads to better business decisions and results. If you use the Mailchimp Service with my pacakge, it’s free to use for up to 2000 people.
4. Email Lists Are Easy to Administer
You use a service to manage your lists, you don’t have to worry about hardware, compliance, rules and laws. They are taken care of for you.
5. Email Lists Allow for Customization
Email messages can be easily customized according to each recipient’s individual preferences. This allows agents to build loyalty and trust through a more personal relationship with their referral base.
Ok, now that you all got my test post because I picked the wrong list (ron+mailchimp+newposting toy=Epic Fail) Sorry about that, but I have some really good news!! You can send email newsletters to all your contacts right through your wordpress site!! You can use MailChimp to send the newsletters, that’s a free service for up to 2000 subscribers. If you aren’t using some sort of newsletter or autoresponders, you are missing the boat on keeping in touch with your potential new deals. You can add your new lead, people you just met at an open house or a coffee shop. Mailchimp can automatically send them your autoresponder emails for as long as you set them up. You can also send newsletter with updates on the markets, new laws, changes that affect homes in your area or pictures of your last vacation!!
This is a very handy tool and if you don’t have something doing this for you, you simply have no excuse. It’s free to use!! It’s not free for me to setup, heck no, but it’s very reasonable.
You can have different lists for different sets of people. Buyers, Sellers, Leads, Past Clients, Church, Rotary, whatever…
Here is what I can do to help you:
I setup a mailchimp account for you.
I create a template using your consistent branding with your website
I add plugins to your website integrating wordpress with mailchimp
I upload your contacts (you have to provide me with a csv file)
I create a category for your posts in your website.
Here are extra things I can do for you:
Setup multiple lists, add different groups of contacts
Add multiple categories in Facebook so you can post to a specific group
If you have the social media package, your newsletter can also post to Facebook and Twitter, as well as your own website. Talk about exposure!! You are getting yourself all over the place with one post. If you don’t have the social media package, contact me to discuss adding that/
This is a really easy and fun way to send out your notes to all your contacts. Contact me for questions on pricing and how quickly I can add it to your website.
You sometimes get emails sent from REALTOR.com, house logic or many other places and you would like to add that information to your blog. Rather than just posting the link, check out this video and learn to post some information about the page, then the link, so you can get people to come back to your website to find the information. If you post these links this way, you can then post it on Facebook, Twitter or anywhere else and get more traffic to your website.
