A Client E-Mail Shows How Hard You Work!

Posted on July 11th, 2017 by Mark Hayden | Categories:

For over 12 years, we have always operated on a foundation of great customer service and helping agents sell their listings. A key part of helping agents sell their listing is making sure your client knows how hard you are working for them.

During the order process, you can provide your client’s email address (which we ONLY ever use for the purpose of this client email) and we will send them the following note:

“Your Agent is working hard for you. Per their instruction, this flyer was emailed to thousands of agents in your area to generate exposure and create excitement for your property.” Your client will also receive a link to view the email flyer. We will not sell or distribute this email address in any way, it is solely for the purpose of promoting you as an agent.

ZYF prides itself on delivering quality e-flyer products for real estate agents nationwide.  We are truly here to help you, please call us with any questions 888-947-8509.

Introducing: Zipyourflyer.com’s NEW Fast Lane

Fast Lane is Zipyourflyer.com’s answer to calls for a faster, more automated way to place e-flyer orders.  Our clients can now place orders using only the MLS, Address and Price, rather than entering the listing text manually and uploading photos themselves.  This allows agents to provide minimal information while we do the rest – all for only an additional $9.95! The same revisions process exists and customers can always detail any specific instructions at the time of ordering.

Introducing our New High Flyer Broker Program!

Posted on December 17th, 2015 by Mark Hayden | Categories: ,

The High Flyer Broker Program for Large Real Estate Brokerages
Participation is FREE!

We are excited to introduce our new High Flyer Broker Program.  We created this program to offer highly customized Email Flyer and Print Flyer solutions to larger brokerages of 50 agents or more.  As a Broker participating in the High Flyer Broker Program, you will have an account rep dedicated to you individually. The services provided will be totally customized for each brokerage.  For your agents a custom program could include product discounts, Special Extras with each order, like PDF’s or Printed Flyers.  The program can also include Special Incentives for you, the Broker.  We will work directly with you to learn what you feel is most important.  From there we will create a unique High Flyer Broker Program just for you and your agents.

Flyers Created Exclusively for Your Brokerage

ZYF’s skilled designers will create a group of flyer templates built around your brokerage’s branding, logo, website, slogan, font … for the exclusive use of your agents.  Since your branding is an integral part of the flyer, it means more visibility for your brokerage with each E-Flyer your agents send to the local market, and each Print Flyer in the flyer box.   For example:

E-Mails and Agents

Posted on May 20th, 2015 by Mark Hayden | Categories: ,

E-mail addresses on E-Flyers are often an important part of an agent’s first impression.

Most of the flyers put together by our designers include a contact e-mail address for the agent or brokerage sending the flyer out.  While superficial, certain assumptions can be made about an agent based on the e-mail address they use, and not every e-mail provider conveys the same kind of status.  Each e-mail address consists of a “local part”, the @ symbol, and a “domain part”.

Free web-based e-mail services ( with domain parts such as gmail.com, hotmail.com, aol.com and others) are free and easy to acquire, but can come off as less professional, as they are not unique to the real estate profession.  The most professional-looking domain parts are either unique to you or provided by your brokerage: these respectively speak to a high level of technical proficiency or a connection to a legitimate real estate agency.

As far as local parts go, the most professional-sounding generally consist of all or part of the agent’s name.  E-mail addresses that deviate from this are hit and miss.  We will use a made up agent named “Robert Kim” for an example: if Robert uses an e-mail like “awesomerobert2382336@aol.com” he is going to seem like a fly-by-night hack compared to the much more professional robert.kim@realtyexemplar.com.  Using elements of your own name are also good for recognition and association on the part of your clients and customers.

To summarize…

Using an E-Mail address that is exclusive to you or your profession gives you a greater air of legitimacy.  When using an e-mail provided by your brokerage, it shows your close affiliation to a major real estate company, something that a free address from a 3rd party will not necessarily confer.

E-Flyer Know How: Print Your Own Flyer!

Posted on April 27th, 2015 by Mark Hayden | Categories: ,

Did You Know…

Mark…that along with our real estate e-flyer and print services, ZipYourFlyer.com offers high-quality PDFs (Portable Document Format)?  For $9.95 at checkout of an E-Flyer or Print flyer order customers can purchase a high resolution PDF file.  (The cost is $15.00 if the order is placed after checkout). This file allows our customers to print their own flyers in-house or through another printing company.  Though the PDF file cannot be edited, it allows you to print your own high-quality flyers.

A bit about print flyers:

ZYF offers competitively priced print services, and best of all our pricing is up-front and easy to understand.  Priority 2-3 day* shipping is included for free with all orders (as well as optional 2 day* and next day* shipping, for a nominal fee). Sometimes even such expedient shipping isn’t fast enough, and a stop-gap is needed while the flyers are in transit.  This is the ideal time for a PDF file!  With a PDF our customers can go to a local print shop (or even use their office printer) and quickly prepare some stop-gap flyers while the print order ships from ZYF.  *Note that we do not offer delivery on weekends, something to keep in mind when ordering flyers on a sensitive timeline.

A bit about e-flyers:

Remember that it is also possible to order a PDF of an e-flyer, if a large order of print flyers is not desired, or if in-house printing is preferred.  ZYF also offers a special discount on print flyers ordered with an e-flyer purchase.  Click here to view info on this and other special offers.

At this time, ZYF does not offer the ability to purchase PDFs as a stand-alone product, only as a special add-on to our e-flyer and print flyer products.

One last thought:

There is one important caveat to the PDF service! While most uses are fine and encouraged, ZYF does not allow its PDFs to be used in e-mail marketing.  Our PDFs carry copyrights, and we cordially ask that these be respected.

ZYF Customer Service Stands Out!

Posted on April 21st, 2015 by Mark Hayden | Categories:

What does ZYF Customer Service do to Help Me Send my E-Flyers?

When calling us for the first time, many potential customers ask the ZYF customer service representatives “What sets ZipYourFlyer.com apart from different real estate flyer companies?

The ability to call a real, live person to ask that question, for starters!  ZipYourFlyer.com employs several full-time ZYF customer service representatives, whose chief goal (between the hours of 7:30AM and 4:30PM Pacific Standard Time) is to help our work through any problems or dilemmas they may face in our ordering process, short of actually placing the order on behalf of the customer; we’re good, but we’re not that good.  Our phone number is (888) 947-8509.

ZipYourFlyer.com has a truly excellent track record of customer service, and even if the phones are swamped we make sure to touch based with anyone so kind as to leave us a voice mail message.  Again, that number is (888) 947-8509.  For those who are not “telephone-inclined” we also offer other means to contact us.  And don’t worry: the kind souls answering our phones check our customer service e-mails regularly as well!

Just remember: we don’t give our designers phones.  We need to keep them focused on making flyers, and most of them lack the social graces necessary to interact with the general public anyway.  Fear not: our eloquent ZYF customer service representatives will tell them everything they need to know.

If things go wrong, as they sometimes will, or you just need a little clarification, fear not!  We are easy to reach and eager to help. Our growing customer service staff is available to answer calls from 7:30AM to 4:30PM Pacific Time, Monday though Friday.  That’s 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM Mountain Time, 9:30 to 6:30 Central Time, or 10:20 to 7:30 Eastern Time.

We’ll even do business with the good people of Alaska from 6:30 AM to 3:30 PM. For the early-birds of Hawaii and the Aleutians we can be reached from 5:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

Real people working with you: One of the many things that makes ZipYourFlyer.com work!

Composing Effective Real Estate Flyers – Part 2

Posted on April 9th, 2014 by Kris Thornburg | Categories: ,

As I wrote in the previous post, that pesky character limit the MLS puts on you really stifles your creativity.  You know as well as I do that if they didn’t put a character limit on the listing description that you guys would be writing novellas in there, some with plot twists and everything.  (Don’t forget, I was one of you and I’ve been working closely and directly with you guys for over 11 years now.)

The point I was trying to make in the last post was that you might not want to use the same listing description for the MLS and all of your other marketing, Email Flyers, Printed Flyers, Syndication, etc.  I know, you guys are really busy, and using the same one for everything is easier.  But remember, the agents you are marketing to are busy also.  Get right to the point when you are writing for other agents.  They are busy too and might not want to wade through flowery paragraphs that your potential homebuyer would swoon over.

What?!! OK…

  • What do Real Estate Agents with Buyers care about when they look at a flyer? (Feel free to chime in here)
  • What would a potential buyer find especially appealing about your listing?
  • What does your client think is an important selling point about their house? (Be sure to ask them.)

If I had to put my finger on it I would say that the agents who have trouble here are often just unorganized with this task.  When I was a REALTOR, I did a pretty good job writing descriptions for my listings.  My trick was a steno notepad, small enough to hold and write on as I walked through the house.  (Steno Pad – for those of you under 35, it’s a small spiral notepad… Nevermind, just key it in on your IPhone)

I would start in the street and take notes.   I’d walk all the way through with my client.  I would ask them to tell me things about their house as we went.  I asked them questions and LISTENED the whole time to be sure I didn’t miss a thing:

-Great Curb appeal, corner lot, big trees, sprinklers, nice neighborhood, playground a block away.

Then I’d go inside. As I took notes about the features I also wrote down words to describe feelings I had as I walked through:

Heavy custom front door. Big entry, soaring ceilings, warm, welcoming, nice colors, impressive….
– Formal Living Room, Big windows, bright happy, gas fp. Lots of room, would hold big furniture, would live nicely, would be great party room.
-Den-office-spare room- glass panel doors, blinds, wainscoting.  A quiet space… great for working from home.
-Kitchen (this is big – spend some time with this so you don’t miss anything) granite, hardwood floors, solid cherry cabinets, undercounter lighting, bright, big, Island with room for seating, stainless sink, fancy faucets, little veggie sink, pot filler, stainless appls stay, disposal, walk in pantry, butler’s pantry… looks like a fun place to cook – glass of wine

You will never remember all this if you don’t write it down.

So now what?

Next time…
