Q: Email List Questions?
A:

Top questions to ask ANY E-Flyer company about their lists… Size is NOT the most important thing!

  • Where do the lists come from? Zip Your Flyer email lists come from over 13 years of subscriber interaction along with national brokerage partnerships and from our in-house research department that works closely with real estate boards and associations.
  • How are the lists maintained? Zip Your Flyer constantly removes any agents that unsubscribe (following all CAN-SPAM requirements). Zip Your Flyer also follows email best practices and removes any agents that are not routinely opening and viewing flyers. That last part is key, most competitors do not do this because the email addresses are still valid, but if no one is opening flyers at that email address you SHOULDN’T be paying for it!
  • Do you have any national partnerships or brokerage partnerships? Zip Your Flyer has multiple national relationships as a national approved vendor for all of Keller Williams Realty and also as a national business partner for Realty Executives. We also have hundreds of partnerships with brokerages across the country from RE/MAX, Coldwell Banker, Century 21, Realty One Group, Better Homes and Gardens, ERA, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Engel & Völkers… and countless others.
  • Can I send you my list? Yes, you can send us your list, in order to verify that the email addresses on your list are agents we would need a few specifics. Please call 888-947-8509 with any questions related to this.
  • How often are the lists updated? Zip Your Flyer has a research team that updates our national lists every day, all day long. Constantly adding, removing and updating agents.
  • Do you guarantee an open rate based on your list? Yes we do! Zip Your Flyer is the first real estate marketing company to offer guarantees on your E-Flyers of at least 10%, however it is very common for open rates to be well above that. If something ever goes wrong, we will make it right.
Q: Do email flyers really work?
A:

The more agents that see your listing the faster it will sell; this is a basic principle of marketing. We have over one million agent email addresses in our database nationwide (this does not include anyone who has unsubscribed). Our Email Flyers will make your property stand out and grab the attention of thousands of agents in your area.

Properties marketed by Zip Your Flyer have shown to have 22% fewer Days on Market.*

See our Designs here.

Q: What is included in the price?
A:

Email Flyer pricing varies by the amount of agents in your selected area. Emails flyer areas start as low as $29.95 for areas of <1500 agents and increases accordingly thereafter. However, the price listed per area is the price you will pay, there are NO hidden fees. We do not have a cost per agent or subscription service, each flyer has a price based on where you want to send it. The price INCLUDES the design of your flyer by real designers, the email delivery of your flyer, an email to your client with the flyer and a note telling them how hard you are working for them. Also, you can request a delivery report showing the exact delivery statistics of your flyer and how many agents it was sent to and exactly how many opened it FREE of charge.
