30 Days of Marketing Opportunities - Day 13: Host a Brunch for Working Parents

30 Days of Marketing Opportunities - Day 13

This is Week 3 in my goal to continue providing marketing motivation for you! 30 Days of Marketing Opportunities will give you 30 projects or tasks that your Virtual Assistant can handle on your behalf, generating leads that will ultimately generate more income for you! These are tasks that do not require a lot of high-end skill but, instead, require some time (hence the reason your Virtual Assistant should handle these tasks, not you!) and attention to detailJoin me on the journey!

Day 13 - Host a Brunch for Working Parents

Working Parents are a great market for you to reach.  This presents the perfect working parentsopportunity for you to show the working parents in your farm area, community or your database just how much you appreciate how hard it is to be a working parent.  (Even if you aren't a parent yourself, you had parents at some point in your life so you know how hard it is!)

Host a brunch, luncheon or just cookies and punch for the working parents.  You want people to see your name and see you active in your farm area or with your sphere, leads, and other contacts.  If you go in on a Working Parents Day event with a mortgage lender (did you read my post Create a Partnership?), the cost of the refreshments won't cost that much at all.  And what's the point?  Let's say it together:  To make them remember you!

Renae - we entice agents to our open house with free food ..... most "sales" events you get invited to offer free food ...... so why not the working parents/moms in our areas..... great idea

Absolutely, Kathy. Food just works!  What working parents do NOT want to take advantage of a meal they don't have to prepare?? (Not me!)

Thanks so much, Constina! I'm so glad I decided to do this - if only to give ONE PERSON some marketing ideas, it was worth it!
