Quick Tip Tuesday: June 3 – Focus Your Postcard Messaging

Posted by QuantumDigital on June 3rd, 2014 | Leave a Comment

When investing in postcard mail pieces to market your listings, it’s tempting to include all information possible – both about your listing and about your real estate credentials. Sometimes you end up with so much information that you can’t fit it on the card. Does this sound familiar? If so, hopefully today’s tip will help you narrow your focus and create a compelling direct mail postcard.

For greatest readability keep your postcard’s words and sentences short. 80% of your words should be 5 characters or less. Sentences should be kept to a maximum of 1 to 1.5 lines each, with a maximum of 6 to 7 lines of text total.

Your mail prospects really want to know “what will you DO for me?” and less about you, your credentials and company. Be sure to lead with how you are going to help them succeed!
