Direct Marketing Elements That Deliver Results in Real Estate Investing

Success in real estate investing largely depends on successful marketing of your business. Targeted direct mail delivers excellent results as long as two conditions are met:

1) That your leads are well targeted - for example if you are targeting motivated sellers, that you reach people who NEED to sell their houses

2) That your direct marketing piece - your letters or post cards must stick out from the pile and convince them to act NOW

In this article, we focus on effective tips that guarantee success of your direct marketing.

Laser targeted leads

Unless your leads are well targeted, you cannot get good response.

For example, when targeting motivated sellers, you must target

i) People who really NEED to sell their houses - such as people going through divorce, bankruptcy, probates, burned landlords, expired listings, etc. In other words, your target is people who find that their house has become a liability in their life and they must get rid of it now

ii) Specific neighborhoods and price ranges - your business model is the most likely determining factor for this

iii) Equity - you probably need to buy houses with some equity In this case, someone who refinanced or bought their house last year may not be your best bet

Unique marketing proposition

You are likely to get minimal response if your marketing piece looks just like the other "We Buy Houses" mail. Your marketing must stick out from the rest:

i) Noticeable mail piece - use post cards with screaming colors. I get excellent results with red, yellow, green and blue. Your mail must stick out from the pile they receive.

Similarly, your letters must stick out from all the other letters they receive every day. For example, using a regular envelop hand-written in red and a big postal stamp gets excellent results.

You can also use odd-sized or colored envelops to increase noticeability.

ii) Powerful headline - it must compel the reader to continue reading

iii) Personalized - whenever possible, your letters should be fully personalized. They must feel you are addressing their personal needs

iv) Powerful content - you must state the problem and provide a solution powerful enough to agitate the reader to really NEED what you are offering

v) Benefits - The solution you offer must include benefits of taking up your offer. They need to see you as the only person capable of providing a solution to their problem. You must create an offer they cannot resist

vi) Deadline - you must have a deadline in all your marketing materials.For example you can give a specific date. You can tell them you will buy only one more house. This gives them a reason to act NOW!

vii) Call to action - what do they need to do next? Go to this website and sign up. Pick up the phone and call this number now. It must be precise and direct

viii) P.S. - most people start with the P.S. before they look at anything else. It needs to re-state the benefits, deadline and call to action to be effective.
