Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How should I use my mortgage newsletter? << back
  A. Here are three ways to obtain more loans with the help of your Homes & Neighbors newsletter:
  1. Your past customers should provide a continuing stream of referrals and future business. Regularly staying in touch reminds them that you're a financing professional who is interested in their individual needs.
  2. Prospects:
  • Keep encouraging people who aren't ready to take action now.
  • Offer helpful and entertaining articles to your friends, family, and others in your sphere of influence.
  • Become the local expert by mailing to a geographic farm area.
  3. Co-market with another professional. Let a Realtor, builder, or CPA add their contact information to yours on the back of Homes & Neighbors. And then they can promote both of you to everyone in their database.

Marketing tip: Direct mail experts say your results will improve by mailing frequently to a small group, rather than doing a larger mailing every few months.

Q. What results can I expect? << back
