Results Are In For Our Facebook Contest! winners are

by Julie Escobar

Wow!  Great shares from so many of you on what you’re doing that’s WORKING and smart strategies for the year ahead.  From our entire team, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in this fun contest!

Now, without further ado — our winners and their top insights for the new year!

First prize and the winner of an all new iPad Mini — Qabbani Goodwyn – who was quite prolific and specific — wrote:

THE CHALLENGE: Had a rare listing around $500k on which I received multiple offers and sold it in less than a week. Potential buyers kept asking me, “Do you have anymore listings like this one??” I wished so hard that I did, but didn’t know how I would get a similar listing or when that would happen.

THE ROUSE: I heard about the GettingListingsSold.com program right about the time this listing went to settlement. I wondered if all the testimonials on the site were true, and more importantly, could I achieve similar results. To be able to click a few places online and have these postcards canvassed to the area with no additional time consumption on my part was very alluring. If I got just one listing out of it, the ROI would be incredible!

PULLING THE TRIGGER: Instead of sending 100, I took a leap of faith and decided to send 275 postcards, jumbo size, not standard. I did this 11 days ago, with a positive expectation of success, even though I was leery as to if sellers between $500k and $1 million would respond to this type of marketing.

SUCCESS!: Within one week I received two calls – one from a neighbor a few doors down from my sold listing, and another from a homeowner facing foreclosure to needed to short-sale her home (larger than my original listing). I met with both homeowners immediately. The results – I am exploring foreclosure alternatives with homeowner #1 who will list with me if they can’t refinance, and the big news is that I secured a listing with homeowner #2 last night. It was a little uncanny that way that the postcard established “credibility” for me before I even walked in the door with these homeowners. They both were immediately very warm to me and were ready to get right down to business.

1. Made sure that I put “Short Sale Specialist” next to “Realtor” in my contact info, and also had a link to my CDPE website for distressed homeowners.
2. I included my personal statement/slogan on the back of the card, and added a call to action specifically with my phone number largely printed.
3. Rather than saying “Just Sold, yadda-yadda”, I highlighted how quickly I sold the previous listing and attributed it to my “12-point Social Media & Internet Marketing Plan”, and added “Let us get amazing results for you!”
4. It didn’t hurt that I’m with RE/MAX and our brand has top of consciousness with both buyers and sellers – so I showcased our “RE/MAX #1” logo.

I hope this testimonial is helpful to others 🙂 I plan to use the entire GLS program with every listing. I’m most excited by the Multi-Channel Direct Response Postcard. I will send out a minimum of 100 cards at the time of listing, and then another minimum 100 when it’s sold. I still need to buy an IPad or IPad Mini so that I can enhance the way I present at my listing appointments.

Thanks ProspectsPLUS!

Our second place winner who will receive $150 in free postcard marketing is…Maggie Dokic who shared her powerful experience from this year: 

The best tip I can give anyone wanting to maximize their marketing dollars is to use Every Door Direct Mail. For the same cost as traditional mail, you get to hit THREE times the household! I was able to bump up my mailings from roughly 300 pieces up to 1,000 by using EDDM instead of a mailing list. I sat down and picked out my routes. I even chose routes to add to those initial ones once I start seeing results (I want to reinvest as soon as I can!). I started out with 1,002 households for a mailing cost of about $146 (plus the postcards) and have my plan in place to add carrier routes systematically, until I am touching roughly 12,000 households in my chosen area. Yes, we know consumers are online and we have all that covered. But they also get their mail daily and we want them to see us there too. ProspectsPLUS! and EDDM both ROCK!

Our third prize winner of $50 in free postcard marketing is…Steven Laidley who shared:  

Since our office has been using MLS mailings ( about 6 months ago) our listings have increased about 30%. Our office is located in a condominium complex of approximately 150 units and the postcard mailings ,that your company has been sending out on our behalf, has many of our neighbors commenting about receiving them and how professional our new appearance is. We can attribute about a 30% increase in listings coming directly from unit owners that have received them. We have reasoned that this is the best advertising money we have ever spent, with results we can gauge definitively.

And our fourth place winner of $25 in postcard marketing is Gary Brand who was kind enough to share…

An e-marketing fellow recently told a group of Realtors that print advertising was a thing of the past. About a week later I put out a Prospect Plus Just Sold post card in the neighborhood around a home I had just sold. I printed it at home and it cost me $40.00 to mail it out. Got a call from a neighbor down the street to list his home and it SOLD quickly and I made $17,000 I think I’ll stick with my print marketing thank you very much! It’s just another important piece of my overall marketing program.
