Bracing for the Blitz!

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Alliance

Well the Blitz is about to begin.  Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like pop-bys but I know most of my business in 2009 (my best year ever) was a result of doing the Blitz. It is difficult for me to do a pop-by with something small or cheap. I know Brian says it is not about the "thing"  but I just can't help it. 

I bought 15 of the Dave Ramsey book The Total Money Makeover (got them at a great price). This book really helped me to reevaluate my finances and it was one of Brian's suggestions at Mastermind. I will be giving these out to the 15 people that I feel can most benefit from the message.  If this helps just one person I will be very happy. 

My problem is, I don't know what to give to the rest of the people.  Does anyone have a suggestion that maybe goes along with this idea?

It's a good life!

How about small calculators?  Tagline, Here's a calculator to help you add up your savings this new year!  Add up your real estate needs & referrals, and send them my way!  They sell candy calculators, which would be good for February popbys,  You could have a theme going on! Adding up your referrals, is sweet joy, to me! 

There is, also, an awesome list of popby ideas on our Buffini site:)

Can't wait for the Blitz?  Will you be hitting the Richmond TP?

It's a Good Life,

I thought of Brian, who often offers his tales of his popby days!  Keep a bunch of items, in your trunk and ready to go!  That will help you to offer them more often and with less apprehension.  I find myself offering popbys to folks that I just met, or to their friends when they are present for my appointment.

Thanks for sharing Fran!  You are the best!  I wish you were closer we would be able to pair up sometimes for pop-bys.

For some of the popby I gave them their HUD from last years buy/sell... free too and valuable!
