“Keeping in Touch”, (Contest)

The End of Year Contest, Searching for New Ways to Stay Connected.

Office, Meeting, Business Partners

It is important to keep in touch with your past clients whether they are a Buyer, Seller, or a Seller who is also ready to Buy. Whatever the circumstance may be, you want them to return to you, when it is time to sell their home and/or purchase another one.

Whether you are a Mortgage Lender, Home Stager, Real Estate Agent, Attorney, or another related field, how do you stay in touch?  What works best for you? Many, will send out newsletters, post cards and will make occasional phone calls to their past clients. Some even have client events.

Friends & Neighbors Real Estate has hosted appreciation Events for Clients, and are now in the process of planning our 2017 calendar, like many others.  I’m sure you are also preparing your 2017 calendar with your plans.

What are you doing, to make 2017 a New Year, with your past clients. Are you adding new things to your calendar, or sticking with your current plans and activities?  What will keep your clients connected to you, when they think of Buying, Selling, or even when someone asks for a reference, your name comes to mind.

Your event or idea for 2017, can be an extravagant gathering, or a one-on-one, maybe for coffee, or something in-between.  Here’s where you can be creative.

 Please tell us: (Here are some ideas to get those creative juices flowing, that you may want to include in your blog)

  •          Have you held events for your client?
  •          Will you please share the process in organizing the event?
  •          Did you ask for an RSVP and did you get it?
  •          Did you gain new clients?
  •          How often do you do this event?
  •          Would you consider it successful?
  •          Would you do it again?
  •          How often do you stay in touch with your clients?
  •          Did you try a new prospecting idea? Is it working?

You can tell us of an event that you have not previous had, but want to include it in next year’s plans. What would you do to make it a success.

Your post should be at least 300 words, although we will not be counting. It’s always nice to accompany your entry with a picture in your blog, when possible. Provide a link to your entry in the comment section of this post.  1000 points will be awarded for your entry. The contest is limited to one entry per Active Rain member and all members are invited to enter their “Keeping in Touch” ideas.

 

The deadline is December 31, 2016 at 12 midnight, Pacific Time.

At the end of the day, adding value to client relationships and staying “top of mind” means more business for you in the form of referrals and repeat transactions and we all want exactly that!
