You buy a monster truck, wrap your branding all over it, slap a plow on the front of that bad boy and drive all over your target markets plowing out people's driveways, clearing their roads, and shoveling their walkways.  Door knocking opportunity to ask if they'd like some salt with that.

 

Bonus marketing points if you do all of the above while wearing a cape.

I did everything i need to do but can not most days when the phone is ringing off the hook and i am on the go every waking minute. I was able to touch base with every client. They loved the communication. I was able to get some not so fun tasks done like updating my books. I then when on a listing blitz and got 1 in my third call.

I find it ironic that when snow days occur and schools are closed, the students have no objection to going up deeper into the snow to enjoy the skiing/snowboarding!

My first sale of 2017 was done on shoe shoes on January 1st!

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade; however when you live in a snow globe, buy snow shoes!

Snow?

My guess would be no one is out shopping anyhow, the closures equal the lack of buyers.

In rural Maine, snow is handled easily, we have lots of experience and less traffic to plow around. But when snow is in the forecast, you shoot the exterior videos, do the collection for the parts of the listing inventory imagery clips and stills to edit and upload while it snows. I grew up on a farm and if rain hampers spring planting, fall harvest or summer cultivating, you shift quickly to items of inside work on machinery. You don't get a "snow day" off, but deal with snow removal and stay productive. Work around whatever obstacles that make others goof off or waste time. But weave in those vacations... go skiing, snow sledding, travel year round.

No idea.  I guess I'd do marketing stuff.  I work from home, so almost everything I do is not impacted by snow.  Just wouldn't be showing homes or going on appointments.  Could still send over an electronic contract though.

One must ask, "Where are all those 'snow emergency' people at?

They are sitting behind a keyboard.

This is when you do the 'happy dance' becuase the inbound marketing is in place.

Meanwhile find the most hazardous location and make a video of yourself telling folks, "Don't do this at home, I'm a professional."
