I was tempted to put a cool stat in the first line, to show off you know.
Then I realized that these stats might not be the same in every country/region.
But I thought & found one stat that doesn’t change, wherever you are.
It is: A real estate agent who is not using email marketing is losing 100% of the customers he could have gotten!
Automate and put on autopilot. Let your system send that welcome email automatically. Create a process to share relevant content. All of this can be done with email marketing.
Here we have put together a list of 6 email marketing tools which can help you pick the right one for your mission:
It's an easy to use, affordable, and feature-rich platform.
To use SendX’s email editor, you don’t need to know HTML or secret Sanskrit mantras. It’s a drag-and-drop editor that makes creating emails very easy and fast.
You don’t need to even start building your email from scratch. You get a responsive, pre-built library of templates that can be customized to your brand or use case.
Whether you build your own template or use pre-existing ones, you can do personalization with the recipient’s names, birthdays etc.
Email marketing automation by SendX can help you save time, grow engagement, and drive more people to open-house events, or realtors’ expo .
The automation features in SendX lets you create a series of emails that are sent to subscribers when triggered by a specific time, activity, or event.
Some examples are:
For building automation, their easy to use flow chart system is pretty intuitive and drag-and-drop builder lets you set up automated workflows in minutes. You can also find templates to get started or get ideas from.
You also get reporting on all areas such as click-maps, geo-tracking and page visits. This can help you see what’s working and where people are paying attention.
ActiveCampaign’s list-management features are very popular.
You can segment contacts via custom fields (which are contact fields that include additional data about the contact, e.g. location or interests etc). Tags and custom fields can be added or removed via automation.
Another interesting feature is- ActiveCampaign also offers lead scoring allowing you to assign scores based on past actions of subscribers. This helps you segment the audience from highly engaged to totally inactive. And thus helps you make actionable decisions for your marketing strategy.
In real estate, every lead and every email counts. So Campaign Monitor helps you seamlessly integrate with several CRM, and event platforms—so you’ll have all the data you need to quickly send personalized email campaigns that drive footfalls
It offers real-time data tracking. From the moment you hit send, you get advanced email testing tools and analytics so you can easily measure and optimize performance in real-time. Finally, you can get an aggregate view into the performance of your overall email marketing program — including geography, acquisition and engagement per campaign.
Mailchimp is extremely user-friendly. They have an intuitive, simple UI and you won’t waste time going through any pieces of training or guides. Their templates offer much more flexibility & creativity - you can create 1,2 or 3 column structure or display images and social media options or show social clout of your pages.
If you send sporadic emails, you can choose the Pay As You Go Plan. It is a flexible alternative to a monthly plan. Instead of paying a recurring monthly fee, you purchase email credits as needed. It’s good if you send quarterly updates only. The Pay As You Go plan comes with the same set of features as their Essentials plan.
Mailchimp's pricing starts off cheap but gets really costly as your audience increases.
Constant Contact provides a high email delivery rate and that is what marketers care about more than anything else. With a high email delivery rate, you ensure that all your emails land directly into the inbox and not in the spam box.
While many email marketing tools also have a cap on how many messages you can send in a month, Constant Contact doesn't. This helps you send emails to a large list or run multiple campaigns in a month.
Constant Contact has templates related to the real estate industry and not just for one type of email but for sales, for inviting to events and even newsletters. With newsletter templates & some valuable content beyond just decreasing & increasing prices of houses and shops, you can add so much more value to your subscribers.
