I do a monthly newsletter but, it only goes out to past clients now. We're strongly considering quarterly newsletters now. We get responses from them - and often - but, just worry that our clients will eventually tire of the monthly ones.  We are still up in the air about them until the end of this quarter!  

We do use MadMimi though.

E-flyers work if they are locally emailed and specify something that is extraordinary about the property that needs to be spelled out.  Incentives to bring the buyer to the property would be a good to use for enticement.  But the best way to draw attention to a property is to call 10 Realtors that have SOLD in the community as they may have interested parties that would be interest in the home.  Speak with 10 neighbors on both sides of the house.  Face to face is still the best way of doing business.

Honestly I think they used to work more before it was a flood of them.  I barely look at them and trash most because I have so many come to me.  But, to answer your question, yes, I think they do work and I would buy a product from them if it was something I had been looking for and I actually looked at the flyer.  I don't enjoy the large amount of junk email I get, however, so I probably don't see most that are even sent to me these days. -Kasey

To other agents?  No.  I mark those as spam and report them to their provider's abuse URL/email (when they have them, many don't).  I imagine I've gotten a few local office's mailchimp and constant contact accounts shut down.

Without a doubt email flyers work.

Have a purchased as a result? Yes.

For example I purchased Filmora because of their willingness to inform me of their product, which I need and use weekly.

And, I do like to scan the spam bin to observe what other marketers are doing. By analyzing why I didn't read their flyer I can make sure I don't make the same mistake.

Of course there are many parts to a successful email flyer campaign. They ALL have to work.

We sure get them from some far away agents thinking we have a buyer for them that are directional beamed to every agent, broker in the land. Use the paper kind with 20 properties each on them for hand outs, to show FSBO's and expired listing sellers with sold stamps on ones that you sell. Place them at the tourist information centers statewide, use them to put at restaurants, motels in your area. Now those kind work.
