HUS Postcards 6x425 Front GenericTestimonial01 bluewhitebg 300x217 New Automated Postcard Marketing Program

The eight postcards in Help-U-Sell Real Estate's new program include testimonials.

At last week’s annual Success Summit, we unveiled a new automated postcard program to help our brokers stay in touch with their centers of influence (CIs). The broad definition of a CI is anyone who can put your name with your face. Did you know it costs five times more to generate a new lead than to tap into people they already know? That is why we created this new program.

The program has eight postcards that will go out during the year to the broker’s selected contacts in our proprietary Office Management System.

Excel Printing & Mailing has worked with us to make the set-up process as simple as possible. A broker simply logs into the Office Management System, selects the contacts, uploads a personal photo, enters a client testimonial, and chooses from a set of real Sold and Saved images. Then the program will be set for the entire year. Brokers can make changes and add contacts throughout the year.

The front side of the postcards will contain information that cannot be edited. This is for cost efficiency purposes. The reverse side of the cards will have the broker’s photo and contact information and either an office testimonial or a Sold and Saved image of the broker’s choosing.

The messaging of the postcards is a balance of general, timely information, such as a spring-cleaning tip, and Help-U-Sell Real Estate content, including the Easy Way chart.

The postcards will cost approximately 36 each, postage included.

Keep an eye out for more details and registration information for a webinar that will walk you through setting up the program.
