12:48 Should I Include My Real Estate Brand in My Mailings
On the topic of branding Kris calls in to ask if she should include her real estate logo on her mailings. Bruce says that it depends but that he doesn’t include his real estate logo on his first letter to avoid being pigeonholed into a real estate only solutions provider. Jim adds that it depends on the content of your letter, if your letter is a “value add” offer to help that explains your services & solutions, then avoid using your real estate logo at first. Bruce shares that he doesn’t include his real estate logo until his 3rd mailing. Chuck adds that a probate focused logo and brand is actually a great thing to add from the beginning of your marketing efforts.
