“Newsletter Mix is a Tricky Business”
I am constantly getting emails from clients and referral partners after they receive my newsletter. I always think they would read more about mortgages, real estate or the economy and email about these topics but that is actually not the case at all.
Sure there will be mortgage related stuff, but I will add something about one or more of the other topics in the newsletter so as long as they are reading the newsletter it doesn’t matter to me, as long as we can keep the topics relevant.
Many of them are also reading my blogs and because they get my newsletter and it comes from my email, they make comments on a particular blog that I wrote rather than comment on the blog itself. I have never really understood why, but it is a pattern. As long as they are connecting with me that is all that matters.
