Direct Mail should be a significant part of your 2023 marketing strategy.
Yellow letters are an effective way to stand out AND make your phone ring.
Download our three templates to make this campaign easy.
Here are two things we can agree on --
- Listings matter now more than ever.
- They're much harder to come by.
That is precisely why farming and direct mail need to be significant components of your 2023 marketing strategy.
Direct mail has been an effective strategy used by agents for decades. The problem is that most pieces that get sent look the same and take a long time to convert into appointments.
You need a solution to help you stand out in your prospect’s mailbox and motivate them to call you. These yellow letter campaigns are a unique and effective way to do just that.
What is a Yellow Letter Campaign?
A yellow letter campaign is a direct mail piece that looks like a handwritten letter on a yellow legal pad. The letter can contain information about a recent sale in the area, the overall market, or why you are the agent of choice for that neighborhood. The options are endless.
One thing we love about this type of direct mail is that you can include a Post-It Note with a handwritten call to action. We've used this with our clients, leading directly to multi-million dollar listing appointments.
