Many brokers have large databases that they like to keep in touch with via email. However, it is hard to stay in touch with everyone regularly or bulk mail your clientele through an email account such as Gmail or Yahoo. That’s where the concept of an email marketing platform comes into play. A good platform will store all your clients, let you create and send emails, and track data on how well your emails did. Here is an overview of Constant Contact and Mailchimp, two email marketing platforms we recommend.
