With everyone watching their pennies these days, I talk to more Realtors who are cutting back on their marketing dollars, advertising and promotional products.
Personally I have tried to bite the bullet and keep the promotional items out there to keep my name in front of leads and potential clients.
The question becomes, if you are going to spend the marketing dollars, what are you going to spend them on ?
Many promotional products are not for everyone, and many products do not fit the personality of certain Realtors.
So what items can you share that have been effective for you in keeping your name in front of potential clients ?
For me - I use all of the following amongst some other seasonal items.
First - the standard pens !
... these continue to be a favorite of my my clients, and even my other service partners like attorneys have these in their conference room to give to clients to sign their closing documents !
Next, I always send calendars and particularly Football schedules !
We have 2 football teams in the NY/NJ area so I cover both bases by having a schedule with both teams schedules ! ... these are magnets and they love these !
My latest product is the handy Letter Opener !
... I just gave a bunch of these out last week, and already saw some on some service partners desks when I stopped by this week. I think my new homeowners will like them too, as it will make opening up all those bills a little easier with my smiling face looking back at them !!!!LOL !
These are a few things I use, but you can get more elaborate if you like.
We just received this invitation to a grand opening of a new reception hall in our area, and they sent out these promoyional invitations in the mail to about 1000 invitees !
... very classy, with a key to the new Grand Ball room ! ... impressive !
So what products have been effective for you ? ... we can all help each other by sharing some great ideas :o)
...oh lastly, I am ordering some T-shirts next week ... they can package them in almost any shape you like ....
.... I'm considering this design ...
... yes folks, this IS a T-Shirt !!!!!!!
.... think I could pull off a product like this T-Shirt ??????!!!!!
