How to Launch a Successful Yellow Letter Campaign

Saturday, July 16, 2016

to

Bitwise South Stadium

700 Van Ness Ave., Fresno, CA

Let’s get together and talk about yellow letters. Are they really on yellow paper? What do you write in the letter?  Who do you send them to and where do you get their addresses? Lets talk about some of the ins and outs of starting a yellow letter campaign and what some of the key aspects are to getting a response from your target market.

Bring a pen and some paper as we will be breaking out of our comfort zone to write a yellow letter during this session to get some practice and to see what it is like to send one out.  This is going to be a real letter going out to a real prospect – I have several addresses we will sending them out to and if your letter gets a response – you just got yourself a deal!

We will also discuss where to get lists, how to refine them and what seems to be the most effective strategies for getting responses back. I hope to see you all at this one – as usual – don’t forget your business cards – there are always plenty of networking opportunities.

Please give a warm welcome to Douglas Dart of Sayland Property Management. Sayland has a long and not so great history here in Fresno with previously over 230 units under management. Douglas purchased Sayland 3 years ago and has been turning it around  from its former slum lord status to that of a respectable , service oriented, technology driven management company that focuses on delivering high quality management for both tenants and owners. Find out what he did to turn things around and what he is doing to maintain it.  Let’s talk about the advantages of using a PM and determine whether or not your business would benefit from it. Get into the details of how a PM company works, what they charge , their scope of services, and how they handle income, expenses and payout reports. This should be a very educational session – I’m looking forward to listening to Doug and learning more about it since I have never used a PM before – bring your note pads and plenty of business cards. See you there!
