I prefer not to junk my clients with links to other people articles, we have Twitter, FB, etc. for sharing liked links publicly.

I make my own market information and local information to send to my clients. I do most of that on ActiveRain and I send a link to my blog posts to my clients, customers and friends.
Inman News has some great information, and it's mostly what I read.
I send my clients love and well wishes and let them know if they need anything ... to let me know ... I am ready to serve.
My clients love anything real estate related. I write blogs on out market and that is of interest to them along with community events!
I typically don't send third party informational reading to clients. I'm sure you will hear of some success stories from members who do --- good luck.
Alexa Collins Keeping up to date with market stats, but I would not send this to my clients.
Many publications and internett sites to choose from. The hard part is delineating the truth. Choose carefully!
I do not send much to my clients, but keep in touch with a personal email or a phone call.
I was never in the habit of doing that....
I don't like to receive random articles in the mail (why did I subscribe to RISMedia?) so I don't do it to my clients.
It depends on whether they are relocating or local.
A variety of topics.
Send your readership :
1. MLS (monthly) Reports
2. spotlights on Neighborhoods
3. upcoming Local Events
4. Spotlight on Area Small Business
No; we do not send our clients any informational readings, but will share specific information on an individual basis as needed.
"...love to send to clients.."
Clients meaning those currently engaged or have completed a transaction with me.
Those currently engaged receive NO additional communication not directly related to the task at hand.
Past clients want to read about how smart they were in making the decision they did. So trends and events appeal to them.
The new agent, though, can not benefit from a database they do not have. So the new must create a message and appeal that has no relationship basis. For guidance they should look to the Darkside to discern what the intent of their services to the public is.
So, those in the 'real estate - haven't met' category, interpretation is important.
Those in the 'not real estate mindset' will engage in articles that address all or one of the five things every citizen confronts every year. Some find this to labor intensive. They may consider event based articles to engage the citizen.
I love to send my clients listings that match their criteria
Corinne Guest, Managing Broker nailed this one!
I don't bombard my clients with extraneous information and articles from third party sites. I don't like it done to me and I don't do it to anyone else.
This may sound funny, but I read Harvard Business Review. Get out of industry pubs and get a whole world view. If it works at Google its coming your way!
I read a wide variety of informational publications, and web material.
I love to read and it is all over the place. So much to read, so little time:) I speed read a lot. I love the book, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie and still read this book once a year. I also like Robert Chaldini's book: Persuasion and can't wait to get his new book: Presuasion. I read my bible almost every day, my goal is every day, but I don't alway stick with that goal. I read news on the internet from many different publications all over the world.
Nestor sends out newspaper clippings to our clients, past clients, and prospects. They love those.
New on market properties.
I often send out newsletters from the homeowners association's of complexes and developments that my buyers have been interested in ....
Alexa Collins - market reports for sure, for my clients - and anything that can help them in their life and not just real estate.
Blogs here in the rain.
The MLS should provide the information that your clients are seeking.
You need to know about the personal needs of your clients to know what to send to them.
If I send real estate related stufff, I would follow Wayne Martin 's sage advice. A
