Acton, CA  - Using it for buyer and seller squeeze pages and email marketing.  It has built in email marketing on each squeeze page.  Drip email campaigns setup with each page.

The squeeze pages convert website visitors to leads.

The drip email converts leads to clients.

And it all costs less than a starter account at Aweber, Icontact, or GetResponse.

We do our own email marketing.  We farm a few neighborhoods in this fashion.  Otherwise my wife/right arm is great in keeping up with our past clients via email.

I use New Panda for my monthly newsletter.  They have a newsletter for real estate and you can use their articles or write your own.  Since I write a lot here on Active Rain, I put my blog posts in and use them as my content.  It's very nice looking and incredibly inexpensive.

We use our own system that is built in our website with our CRM. We developed the pieces so they would be personal and not spam.

Russell Alton most CRM does allow drip campaigns - and yes, I do send my monthly eReport from Brian Buffini to my SOI - which is one of the best.

I use Happy Grasshopper.  It's very engaging and my clients love it. I get a lot of responses ... which is the entire point ... to engage with people.  It's among the top best bangs for your marketing buck.

For have not mets I use a service. The big ones are spammers therefore not worh the effort.

For met and not converted, I use my CRM.

For converted (i.e. past clients) I e-mail directly. For this group I mainly use content all my AR peers have provided to deliver the 'not mainstream' news they relish.

I dont use it, think it is viewed as spam by many.  I try to find more personal ways to market myself and my services.
