Inexpensive Marketing and Farming using MS Publisher.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Centre Realtors

We use Publisher for marketing brochures, property Flyers and our own return address labels.

I have also used it for post cards and property business cards.

I usually receive Free Return Address labels from charities and send them a donation . The labels come in handy and that is one piece of mail I open and save.  I do not even bother to open rest of the junk mail..

As I was sorting my mail the other day I thought of  delivering  a sheet of return address labels to my farm area and sphere of influence . I can do holiday themed labels to add color.

 I think this is a great Pop By item.

Please share your marketing ideas using Publisher by commenting.

I am just beginning to learn Publisher myself. I see the value as you do. It also let's me be creative with my products.

Gita, nice post! Here is another cute marketing idea, paste into the labels a photo of the home you have just sold to your buyer, add their soon to be new address, and give that to the buyer a few days before closing. They love it, and can use it to send notes to friends and family to show off their new home.

Frances, I got it installed when I ordered my Dell laptop. You can buy it at Staples. I do not know if you can download from internet .

Susie, Thank you. I like it because it is easy to use.

Diane, I have not used it for CMAs. I will look into it.

Gita,  thanks for the great idea.  I am a new agent and trying to learn Publisher and found your post doing a search here. 

Are there any experienced agents who might like to share some templates they use for their flyers?  Would appreciate any help I can get at this point.

Gail

Great idea. I never thought of that but love when I get them in the mail myself! As for flyers, having just switched from RE/MAX the thing I will maybe miss the most is remax.net and having access to Design Center. The flyers are so easy to do and always look so professional. I can make a publisher document look like it but it's so easy to just edit the templates online for Design Center. Check it out if you haven't lately. They have some great new templates!
