Sometimes door knocking can be intimidating, but there is no better way to make new connections within the community... or, is there? Sponsoring a charitable event - like a food drive to support local food backs - is a great excuse to knock on doors and introduce yourself. Feed your database, and spend your time doing something that will make you feel good about yourself!
Our office participates in food drives twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Every agent selects the area they will canvass - most of us choose an area of about 250 homes - generally an area we farm. We each determine what combination of marketing we will use to get the message out, and how we will collect, but we all have the same deadline. What a great promotional opportunity for our office and ourselves. We meet neighbors, post photos in the newspapers and on our web sites. It is hard work, but very rewarding knowing that you can incorporate business prospecting with doing something good for the community around you.
