If you’ve written off email marketing as being ineffective, you may want to think again. Email is one way you can stay in touch with your real estate database and remain “top of mind,” quickly and easily. It’s much more cost effective than many other marketing channels, such as direct mail and print advertising, and much of it can be automated. Studies have shown that people 1) want to receive email from individuals and companies they’re interested in, 2) use email to share information, and 3) check email every single day.… Read the rest

What are you doing right now to offer exceptional service to your clients? Perhaps you respond to their inquiries right away, provide them with excellent advice, are proactive in showing them homes they may be interested in and anticipating their needs, and more. But are there other things you can be doing? Maybe you could be leveraging technology more to bring the service you provide from good to great. Or great to extraordinary.
IXACT Contact is the only real estate CRM that comes with Email Campaign Reporting; a feature that helps you to identify your hot leads and gives you key insight into how many people opened and forwarded your email and clicked on its links. It also tells you which emails hard bounced and which ones soft bounced so you can clean up the email addresses in your database if necessary. A common question we get asked is “What’s the difference between hard and soft bounces?”
