Yes my Mobile Home newsletter is still alive and well. Basically it is a small 4 page newsletter set up like a little newspaper. Column form etc.
Currently I send out about 200 or so every other month. People who I have done a deal with, PM’s, etc.
It is market specific, being that the info is really just about were to find cheap milk, gasoline etc; Some Mobile Home repair tips, usually a contest of some sort (who has the most improved mobile home, they get $10.00 bucks off their next payment) etc.
Of course laced through out the newspaper are many articles of the “How would you like a hundred bucks” type (finder fees) etc.
The real reason for the newsletter is market penitration, when ever anyone thinks of mobile homes, in the parks that I deal with, I want them to think of me at the same time.
I use Publisher 98 to make it, using one of their basic newsletter templates. I like that program, because it walks you through everything.
Anyhow I hope that helps,
