Time is Running Out! Order Your Flags for the 4th of July Marketing

waving flags

Hi everyone, can you believe the 4th of July is just around the corner? While I am sure every single REALTOR® who reads this blog will be taking time off to celebrate our nation’s declaration of independence many of you will allow a great marketing opportunity to pass you by. For a modest investment of time and money you can both market yourself and spread a little needed patriotism this 4th. Decorating a neighborhood or handing our jumbo 12x18 American flags out with your business card attached is a great way to get your name out in front of your farming neighborhood.

I could go on and on about the benefits of using our flags but today I simply did a quick search here on AR to see what other agents have to say about marketing with flags. Here are some quick excerpts from their blogs….


"...The age old tactics borrowed from the great Real Estate sales gurus like Tom Hopkins & Danielle Kennedy really do work. They are just that, WORK, and that's the word many new agents forget in this highly digital age. It takes good old fashioned, roll up your sleeves and "git er done" type of work to reap the rewards of this type of marketing.

Now don't get me wrong, I want as much SEO and Google hits to promote me as the best darn agent in Little Rhody, but the thrill of walking my Farm on an early Fourth of July morning and sticking 300 Old Glory's in every front yard is darn special. I'll tell you, it's certainly not lost on the neighborhood either. "Hey, here come the pumpkin guys." or "Where's my flag?" The compliments just roll in every time we make the effort. 

A Flag for everyhome in the neighborhood on the Fourth of July...."

"AMERICAN FLAG “planting” is an annual event of Century 21 Crest Real Estate in Pompton Plains.  Each year our office purchases over 2000 American Flags that are placed along the 2.8 mile stretch of Newark Pompton Turnpike and Jackson Avenue in Pequannock Township.  Our Realtor agents, friends and family volunteer to walk and hand place the American Flags….

...We started this tradition over 10 years ago when one of our agents, Colleen McMahon, observed a patriotic display of flags in a local Bergen County town.  She brought the idea to our Broker, Patricia Wojtyszyn, who immediately agreed that it was an excellent way for our office to participate in the Memorial Day events of Pequannock Township."

"I built my real estate sales & listing career closing over 100 homes a year with my "team" of one ME. My business success involved using HIGH TOUCH.  I introduced farming flags into my marketing plan years ago and experienced immediate gratification.  The response from people in my farm was over the top. 
I would put my business card on the staff of the flags and carefully place the flags on the edge of the front lawns in the evening before special dates such as June 14th (Flag Day) Memorial Day and July 4th.  The next morning people in the neighborhoods would awake to flag lined streets and all the pride of the red, white & blue.  We are a patriotic country with American pride.  The flags stay in the yards all season.  I have had lots of business because of these farming flags..."

Howdy and evening

I have to tell y'all, being a Retired Vet I am very offended by the selling and the use of our Country's Flag for farming for business.

 Have a good one
