Defining Your Audience – List Building

Choose the combination that best aligns with their marketing goals and budget.

Our comprehensive mailing list and data services offer a range of Audience Approach and Personalization options tailored to meet the diverse needs of real estate agents aiming to enhance their print and mail campaigns for lead generation.

In terms of Audience Approach, clients can choose to target all property owners, both occupied and non-occupied, within their specified geographic area for effective Geo Farming. Alternatively, they may opt for more specific targeting, focusing on occupied property owners, non-occupied property owners (such as absentee or investor owners), or a combination of both at site and tax invoice addresses. These choices come with varying price per piece considerations, providing flexibility to align with marketing strategies and budget constraints.

On the Personalization front, clients can select from default options like “Current Resident” or opt for increased personalization by including owner names or premium options, offering detailed variations in addressing recipients. This versatile array of options allows real estate professionals to tailor their mailing lists precisely to their target audience while accommodating different levels of personalization to maximize campaign impact.

Audience Approach:

All Property Owners (Occupied & Non-Occupied) at Site Address (Popular with Geo Farming)
• Description: Target all property owners, whether they live on the property or not, within your specified geographic area.
• Pricing: No Pricing Impact Occupied Property Owners at Site Address (area with property values 5mil +)
• Description: Focus on property owners who live on the property within your target area.
• Pricing: May impact price per piece ($0.01 – $0.04) area and property values. Non-Occupied Property Owners (Absentee or Investor Owners) at Site Address
• Description: Target property owners who do not live on the property within your target area.
• Pricing: May impact price per piece ($0.08 – $0.11) due to the specific audience. All Property Owners (Occupied & Non-Occupied) at Tax Invoice Address (Data Farming)
• Description: Reach property owners at their tax invoice address, irrespective of their physical location.
• Pricing: May impact price per piece ($0.04 – $0.06). All Property Owners at Site Address & Tax Invoice Address & Including Presumed Renters
• Description: Target both occupied and non-occupied property owners at both their site and tax invoice addresses.
• Pricing: May impact price per piece ($0.04 – $0.06) and increase total quantity.
(Don’t miss anyone!)

Personalization Options:

Default No-Personalization (Current Resident or *Neighbor)
• Description: Standard non-personalized mail with a generic recipient title.
• Pricing: No price per piece impact. Main Owner First & Last Name Personalization
• Description: Personalize the mail with the first and last name of the property owner.**
• Pricing: Estimated impact of $0.03 – $0.05 per piece. Premium Personalization
• Description: In-depth personalization** with multiple name options or trust details.
• Pricing: Estimated impact of $0.04 – $0.05 per piece. Popular for Data Farming.
First Name Owner 1 & First Name Owner 2 w/Identical Last Name
First Name Owner 1 & Last Name Owner 1
First Name Owner 2 & Last Name Owner 2
Trust = Smith Residence or Smith Family
Trust = Trustee Name if Verified
*In certain postal areas, “Neighbor” used as the addressee name is acceptable. Place an inquiry, and we will find out.
**Regardless of personalization selections, all lists will contain some Current Resident addressee names, as a verified name is not always possible.

Change of Address

If you are using personalization in your address records, it is important to keep in mind the actions or rules you want taken when a CHANGE OF ADDRESS is reported for that record (or any record on your list).

As your prospects or consumers move, many (76%) will fill out a change of address form online or at their local Post Office. As a result, USPS will apply that move, and mail will now be forwarded to their new address. We access this information online 24/7 from the USPS server via batch processing when we validate any mailing list.

We also utilize a private move compiler (5 data compilers, 3 of which are the largest credit information reporting firms) for those who do not fill out a USPS Change of Address Form.

If your mailing address is not personalized, this usually has little effect. However, if you are using personalization and your target has moved, the question now becomes: Do you want to follow that person and now mail to them at their new address? Often the answer will vary, and more specifically, in our world of lead generation for listings, it will vary between the types of lists you have.

For Geo-Farming (and some data farms), generally, your focus is on the property site. So when the owner moves, normally you do not want to follow them but remain marketing to the new owner. Thus, you can continue your hyper-local marketing efforts.

If the list is based on your client or sphere (SOI list), you might want to follow them. These might be relationships you want to maintain and thus remain in contact at touch points with these contacts regardless of where they moved to.

Keep this in mind and communicate to us how you want your data maintained.

Choosing the Right Postcard Size for Your Direct Mail Campaign

Considerations for Choosing the Perfect Postcard Size

If you can effectively get your message across to the recipient in a 4.25 x 5.5 postcard, and you are comfortable with the “impact” then choose this option, as it is the most cost-effective card to manufacture and mail. Space:
If your message is better served by using more space, then choose either the 9 x 6 or 11 “x 5.5” options. Keep in mind the cost to manufacture/produce the 8.5x 5.5. or 6 x 9 is less than the 6 x 11; however, the postage for both will be the same. Make an Impact:
If you really want your piece to stand out in the mailbox, and your budget allows, you may want to look at the 11 x 8.5 size. It is the most expensive to print and mail, but it will definitely stand out. When you invest in a large postcard, you’re making sure you introduce yourself boldly. Large mailings are great for special offers, the first mailing in a series of postcards and simply if you want to grab attention and stand out from your competitors.

Standard Sizes

Standard Postcard (4.25” x 5.5”):
With the least amount of space for content, this postcard is compact and optimal for simple, straight-to-the-point designs. It qualifies for a true first-class postcard rate. Jumbo (8.5″ x 5.5″):
It is hard to match the versatility of a 5.5″ x 8.5″ Jumbo Real Estate Postcard. It allows ample space to display high-quality larger images featuring a listing/sale. Often in smaller images details can be lost. Super Jumbo “6”x 9″:
This size offers the most versatility often. Popular for just about any real estate agent postcard campaign it is appealing as it can allow for more creative options, just due to its size. Panoramic 11″x 5.5″:
Almost the largest on the market that still qualifies for USPS “Letter Rate” this has been our favorite for real estate postcards at least when used along with the Jumbo. Tall Panoramic 6” x 11”:
Generally the largest on the market that qualifies for Letter Rate by USPS, the Tall Panoramic is very similar to the above Panoramic. Offers even greater versatility with larger proportions. The Giant 11″ x 8.5:
Reach prospects or clients and make a huge impact! At 8.5″x11″ these postcards get you noticed, both in the mailbox and when shuffled and reviewed.

Custom Sizes/Options

If you don’t see the size you want:

  • If you are Ready To Go and Have your Own Art File, place your order using the NEXT SIZE UP. For example, if you want a 5″x7″ postcard then select our 8.5″x5.5″ Jumbo. Make all your other selections, Enter your QUANTITY, and place your order. Unfortunately, most of the time, there is no cost saving we can extend as our sizes already take into account sheet size optimization and yield, but if we can we will; otherwise, this allows you to get mailing started! If there are any issues we will reach out, and if we cannot accommodate the order, we will refund your payments made, in full.
  • Don’t see a size or other option and want a QUOTE:
    • USE: Get A Quote:
    • If you would like a quote for a custom card and you don’t see a certain size, or finish, or paper, etc. – Select the closest size and then make the closest other selections you can including QUANTITY, so we know how many you need, and SELECT GET A QUOTE (rather than upload or design). A form will open – Confirm a few items in the Notes section place those requirements/needs you have for your cards, or any special need for this mailer. Send. We will get the info back to you usually within 1-2 hours.

    HOLE AREA (Die Cut): While we dont recommend, content can be included in the top portion where the hole and slit will be, it should be limited to the top corners and not placed around where the hole will be.Due to the variable nature of the manufacturing process, we cannot guarantee that the hole will be in the same place every single time. Therefore, at least .25” or 1/4” of margin should be left around the hole
