Does anyone have any good info for what to write on postcards that you mail out for pre-foreclosures?

It seems to be kind of a touchy subject so I'm not sure what to write on them.

Any suggestions?

hmm...the best thing I can suggest to you Tommy is to check out elance.com or getafreelancer.com and hire a professional copywriter to do this for you.

Some time it is best to outsource our work to professionals rather than write it ourselves unless you have the experience in writing up a sales letter/postcard.

You will get a great price as they "bid" on your projects and you might even want to them to do an entire series of letters and postcards for you. Elance is definately my favorite.

Check it out I don't think you will be disappointed.

Tommy, PM me and I will send you something to start with. In the beginning it ok to start with something like this. But don't stick to it exactly.

Remember the key to marketing is creativity. Get in mind of the person your trying to reach. You do this buy asking yourself the following questions: What is going on in the mind of your prospect? What problems do they have? What do they want solved? What is keeping them from solving their problem? What are they frustrated about?

Write down the answers to these questions on a sheet of paper, then create a postcard that addresses those issues.

If you do this, you'll get lot more responses from your mailings.

If you go the easy way and buy some Gurus postcard you'll definitely regret it.

Jose can you share it with all of us? Just create a photo gallery and you can save any pictures here on the site. That would be great!

This is something I use to use. I can't find the one I like to send out. Not saying this is the way to go but I put this in a format that I could just go to staples and have them print me out some postcards on Yellow paper. Return rate was about 1% the big thing was all the postcards I got sent back to my mail box marked undelivered. Then I know I most likely had a vacant property on my hands. I only sent out to Divorces and Deaths. Wish I could help more.
