How many lists do you have in your Mailchimp account? If you have multiple lists—and it's likely you do—it may surprise you to know there's a better way to organize your contacts.
And when I say better, I mean it may help you save money, save face, and save time.
In this post, we'll explore the benefits of using a master list and three ways to organize it that will improve your email marketing.
Let's dive in, shall we?
If you’re a fan of saving money, avoiding frustration, and keeping things simple, a Mailchimp master list is the way to go.
Most agents have multiple contact lists in their Mailchimp accounts—as few as five and some well over...
Is your Mailchimp account set up for success? If you’re like most of my clients and students, you’ve activated your account, imported your contacts, and sent campaigns.
But it’s also likely you’re paying too much, losing subscribers faster than you add them, getting low engagement, and not getting the results you want.
It's all fixable, my friend.
The best way to improve your email marketing is to start with an audit of account settings, list health, and list details. This information presents opportunities to improve your email marketing but keep your investment as low as possible.

I love overpaying—said no one ever. And you’re no different, right?
Do you want more qualified leads? If you're like most Realtors, the answer is yes. Also duh. But the problem with lead generation in the real estate industry is that you've probably been trained to pay for leads instead of taught to generate them yourself.
But paying for leads doesn't always work out well—or so I've read on industry forums. There are lengthy threads about the cost and quality of using third parties for lead generation.
If you're ready to cut your dependence on third-party leads, there are two key things you need to generate them yourself: landing pages and traffic. And in this post, we'll take a look at both.

Oh yeah, this is simple—if you understand what a...
If you’re like most Realtors, you know how to turn on the charm, add value to conversations, and collect contact information from attendees at your open houses.
The hard part is making sense of illegible handwriting, entering or importing the information into your CRM or email service provider, and following up—unless you charm (or pay) someone else to do it for you.
But it doesn't have to be like that.
With the help of Mailchimp Subscribe, you can turn your tablet (iOS or Android) into a beautiful, branded sign up form. Open house attendees tap in their contact info, and it's pushed to your Mailchimp account. You can follow up immediately with a welcome email or series.
If you have WiFi at your event, your information will...
If you're like most Realtors, you're good at working in the present moment. However, the problem with that is, most of the people you connect with aren't ready to buy or sell a house right now—they want to do it in the future.
And that requires client relationship management (CRM).
You're quick on the draw with phone and email, but client relationship management is all about data entry, that thing you loathe to do. But time at your keyboard isn't the only drawback—most CRM systems cost serious coin and cause serious frustration.
Is the future worth all that?
The answer is an emphatic YES! Knowing where your next dollar is coming from makes everything more enjoyable. Less stress and more freedom? Yes, please.

Is technology your barrier to real estate success?
If you’re like my clients and students, you have a whole host of goals that technology could help you reach—if the overwhelm of technology didn’t make you break out in the sweats.
You're one smart cookie, so don't beat yourself up for a little technophobia. In my opinion, your anxiety is related to the nature of your job.
You don't have time for deep dives into learning and executing complex software and platforms. You're too busy fielding calls, dealing with crises, and shuffling your calendar to accommodate the constant swirl of change that is Real Estate Life™.
Mailchimp is a great way to get over the technology hump and grow your business...
Learn how email marketing can lessen your anxiety, increase your confidence, and make your business sustainable no matter what’s happening with the real estate market.
