Word of Mouth is Not the Only Way

I just got my real estate license and I joined a local realty company. There are a lot of people in my office and I was trying to figure out a way to be able to stand out from the rest so I looked online for some ideas as to how I could sell myself to potential clients. I knew that going door to door would be impossible but then I found a suggestion for real estate direct mail marketing. This type of marketing seemed like a no brainer to me and I decided there and then that I would be the first in the office to try out this type of marketing. What I would do is hire a company to target the residents of a specific area, then I would have them help me design a post card with my name and information on it. The picture might include a house that I recently sold in their area and then it would help me get my name out there for new clients.
