The email marketing instruction course!!!!!!

However, I do have a question. I am not an investor or a Realtor, I am a loan officer. Do you have any suggestions on how I could tweak this approach to generate leads for loans. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Email marketing is very interesting...congrats to all on the successes!
Out here in California, I think we may have a different situation. The "spammers" are rampant and they've pretty much ruined email marketing for everyone! Every day I get 300-500 spam email on my business account. In the past I bought email lists and marketed to them for educational seminars in my "day job" but its getting tough because folks are just clearing their inboxes out without reading the mail if they don't recognize the name of the sender.
I'm glad the situation is different in other parts of the country! Market On!

That's the problem...the spammers in California use regular sounding names so if you're doing an email marketing campaign there's a real dilemma. To open or not to open? And with the number of seemingly legitimate emails in your in box, it could literally take several hours a day just weeding through them.
Spammers are killing the goose that laid the golden egg.

You are directly affecting something that is close and important and relative to them, so in their/our mind it would be stupid to not just check it out. That is why you need to make the quick questions, simple, personable, and honest. You will get a reply from tons if you do that..even ones from 4 years ago! Now that's funny.

The problem, Doug, is not with the email marketing method itself. The problem seems to lie with the email addresses you are obtaining from the various FSBO sites you are using to find them. Unfortunately, many of the online FSBO sites are poorly managed and rarely updated. This will result in outdated listings as you have discovered. Search for additional, better managed sites and try, try again.
Christian, I ended up with a response of about 10% and they were all sold. The most recent was a year old.

I thought I'd found something good with ushousefinders.com, there wasn't any more in my area, but spread over the province there were hundreds. Unfortunately those are the ones that are so out of date.

Since this is the only one I've got an email back from which is still for sale, I thought I'd better post it here and ask: What should I do next?

OK, Doug, cut it out and let's get serious. For starters, you have already contacted the homeowner via email, and they have replied? Is this correct? What did you ask, and what was the reply?
Posted 27 April 2004 - 12:41 PM
The answers are what I just posted: Yes it's still for sale. It's been on the market for 4 weeks. They're selling because they're moving August 5th.
And like I said, the house is in a town/city about 60 minutes away.

Or, if you want to flesh it out a bit:
"I am interested in buying your house with a Lease Purchase.
A Lease Purchase holds many advantages for the seller:
No commissions to pay, (I am not a Realtor).
No closing costs, (Purchaser pays all).
You retain all tax benefits of ownership until the sale.
No maintenance or repairs to deal with, (we do it all).
No vacant property to be concerned about.
If you are interested in discussing additional Lease Purchase advantages, or possibly selling your house today, please contact me at........"
Then, see what reply you receive and we'll proceed from there.
