Must-Have #3 for Real Estate Drip Campaigns - A Property Purchase Anniversary Email

All good real estate agents know that it is essential to contact their past clients at least once a year to stay top of mind. There is no easier time to do this than with an automatic email congratulating your clients on another year in their home! If you want to go the extra mile, consider calling them or popping by to see how they are doing and if the property still fits their life! This one email could be a huge source for repeat clients!

Must-Have #2 for Real Estate Drip Campaigns - A Happy Birthday Email

For most of us, we expect it. For many of us, we enjoy it. Having someone remember our birthday is special. Having our real estate agent, someone we may not have heard from in years remembers it, huge! You don’t need to know how old they are turning, simply let them know that you wish them a happy birthday and you are thinking of them. The extra mile here, couple the drip email with a personal note!

Must-Have #1 for Real Estate Drip Campaigns - A Welcome Email

Coming in at #1 is the most important email, the welcome email. This email is non-negotiable as it will set the tone for your clients as to what they can expect. If done poorly, expect your Unsubscribe rate to skyrocket. If done properly, know that you are getting the most ROI on your drip campaign. What your welcome email should include:

  • A friendly opening

  • A sentence telling them where they signed up and why they got this email

  • A sentence telling them when they can expect their next email

  • Your contact information
