Hi followupboss.com you can search for my testimonial on Active Rain. Their automated text system has made me more $ than I can tell you.  You can't always speed to lead when you are busy selling.  It's impossible.  You need to be able to have some of it automated in a high end professional manner.

Well the key to the expense is whether or not you use it.  I go through periods where I am intensively engaged with it, and other times its on autopilot.

I use ixactcontact because I like the user interface, my contacts are always on the left pane regardless of where I am at in the CRM (this was exactly why I didn't select TP).  They also have some canned newsletters and while they aren't perfect its alot better than trying to curate them on my own.  They are $35/mo and if you purchase an annual term you get 10% off. You also can try it out 5 weeks for free.  (if you do end up trying it and liking it, let me know - mention my name and you will get a discount (and so will I :-)

I too use Top Producer, but many have brought up Realty Juggler, which is much less expensive and I don't use everything TP offers anyway.

It'sprovided by my brokerage and yes it's very effective. I can just let it churn the standard content provided or design my own, which is my preferred style.

Ginger,

if you want to keep doing what you are doing, then I would recommend WiseAgent. $30 something monthly.

However, if you understand, doing what you are currently doing is going to leave you high in dry in the foreseeable future, I would recommend SugarCRM.
