As the real estate market heats up, are you looking for a sure-fire way to quickly and easily connect with your clients and potential leads? Homes.com recently conducted a survey of homebuyers search habits, which reported that over 50% prefer to communicate by email. An effective email marketing strategy isn’t just important, it’s vital. Russell Shaw, a broker with the Realty ONE Group in Phoenix, Arizona is a big advocate for drip email marketing and said, “it might be the one thing agents end up missing the most. The emails are scripted to read like a personal letter, so the message sticks with them. And eventually, we get the call that they want to see a house”. Read on and watch our email marketing training video to take advantage of this valuable, yet underutilized tool inside the Homes Connect dashboard.
