Closing Gifts and Co Marketing Ideas

Real Estate Agent with Allison James Estates and Homes SL3168091

As I review my business budget I am remembering the training that I received at Keller Williams Realty, in Brevard County Florida. I am starting to brainstorm on the ways that I can get some marketing dollars and closing gifts to help my clients. 

Some ideas for those of you looking for the same types of things to put in a closing packet.

  • My local cable company gave our office $100 off coupons for new service hook ups when they present the coupon at the time of purchase. 
  • POD (you know, portable on demand storage) offered to put a "display pod" at an open house, and they raffled off a free POD (like $100 value) move to anyone who wrote a contract that day.
  • A local Blind (verticals and window coverings) company gave our office a $100 coupon (off of a $1000 order). 
  • A local landscaper offered discounts or a "free mow" for a yearly contract.

There are alot of other professionals out there, that I forget about, that are just as eager as I am to gain clients. Its nice when we can get business together by offering these gifts.  These are just some thoughts that I wanted to share with, if you have any more ideas that you'd like to share~I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

Thanks for the ideas!  I am always searching for ways to enhance life for my clients!  Have these ideas worked at all for you?  I am looking forward to seeing maybe some ideas generated from other people, too.

They've worked like a charm; the clients get like $300-$400 in coupons and they love it. Most of my relocators really appreciate it too! I'm hoping for lots of comments!

One of the gift I give is an Entertainment book.  We Realtors get them at half the price (around $20), and it highlights local Restaurants and places to go.

I like to throw in an extra gift -- usually a free box of notepaper with envelopes -- when I get a new customer for my closing gifts. Please take a look at www.wevemovedgifts.com.
