Direct Mail vs. Email

There isn’t a week that goes by that an agent tells me that they have decided to keep in touch with their past clients and sphere database primarily by an email newsletter.

Ask Denise: Spring Cleaning

Q: “Denise, I know you aren’t a fan of “fluff” mailers like setting one’s clock forward. But what do you think about information on spring cleaning?” A: A timely question!

Ask Denise: Farming Strategy

Q: “Denise, I have been sending letters to a specific area of 200 homes for nine months now. I did the research before I started – there was no established competition in the area and the area had a good turnover rate. I haven’t received any calls yet. What should I do? Should change what […]
