EDDM® REALTOR® Postcard Design and Messaging
Real estate agents typically know the areas that they want to market to, but they often look to our team for REALTOR® postcard ideas, messaging, and design.
Use Community-Specific Messaging
Real estate agents are great at creating listing descriptions and can come up with unique answers to endless questions on the spot, but your REALTOR® postcards must also demonstrate that you are an expert in the local community.
Every Door Direct Mail® allows your message to be community-specific, so you can capture your reader’s attention and establish a connection.
Successful real estate agents refer to their target neighborhoods in postcard headlines and state facts specific to the community, such as:
“Cedar Ridge homes are selling for an average of 6% more this year.”
Now, that is a powerful message.
Showcase Local Homes You Have Sold
Every Door Direct Mail® enables real estate agents to make a personal connection with the community and start a conversation with potential sellers.
One great way to personalize EDDM® real estate postcards is to showcase the homes you have sold in the area. This will establish trust between you and the recipients of your postcards, and help to position you as a local real estate expert.
How to Bring Your REALTOR® Postcard Ideas to Life
Some REALTORS® prefer to design their Every Door Direct Mail® postcard online, while others request designs from our professional design department. You can pick and choose whether we design, print, or mail your EDDM® real estate postcards, or take care of the whole process for you.
EDDM® Real Estate Postcards Target a Specific Carrier Route
EDDM® real estate agent postcards enable you to reach local communities with specific messaging customized to them. With Every Door Direct Mail®, you are mailing to a carrier route that is defined by specific boundaries, which typically match up to subdivisions. Zipcodes are broken down into postal carrier routes. A carrier route is assigned to a mail carrier. A mail carrier only delivers Every Door Direct Mail® postcards to their carrier route. This means you know exactly where your postcards are being delivered to.
Online marketing and email campaigns can’t replace the personal touch of a postcard sent by an expert in your local community. According to research from the United States Postal Service, 98% of people bring in their mail each day. Physical mail is something that residents still look forward to receiving and sorting through. A postcard that a reader can hold in their hand immediately makes more of an impact and is more memorable than countless marketing emails received every day. Design your REALTOR® postcards with an image that catches the eye, and a headline about your readers’ community, and you’re bound to spark interest.
