Often, potential real estate buyers are inundated with homes for sale offerings from their email accounts and general digital presence.  But, realtors looking to market their properties to these buyers turn to books and booklets.  Because print is considered the more trustworthy marketing tactic compared to digital, as a real estate office, you can build a stronger brand by promoting your business in high-quality books and booklets.

The best part about printing custom greeting cards is your ability to market your business, with your logo or slogan, while also being personable to potential clients.  And you'll be able to print as many versions of cards as you want, as long as there is a minimum of 25 cards per version!  So, start sending those personal greeting cards out and building a strong base.

6.  Use Simple, Active, & Clear Writing. When writing your articles in your newsletter, try to keep it clean and direct by eliminating wordiness. People like concise writing styles, so try to create short useful stories, and then link to longer articles if they would like to learn more.

7. Proof, Proof, Proof! Two people proofing is better then one. Look for spelling, clarity, correctness, and simplicity. One of our suggestions would be to wait a day or two before proofing after writing an article, because it can give you a fresh perspective. 

File Requirements

8. Organize Your Design! Create a professional look that is consistent in every issue. Don’t pack too much into one issue, use white space, and appropriate pictures and images. If the design is too crowded, it makes the words hard to read, and people will lose interest.

9. Get Creative With Images! Incorporate graphs, diagrams, and charts when appropriate. Eliminate wordiness by using a picture image that demonstrates your concept. We've said it before, and we'll say it again - A picture is worth 1000 words! People respond to them.
