Marketing Monday: My Favorite Closing Gift

By
Mortgage and Lending with First Heritage Mortgage NMLS #: 938761

My go-to closing gift for clients is a custom return address stamp.  I buy them on Etsy and they retail between $23.95 and $28.95, not including shipping.  When I bought my first house, this was the very first purchase I made--it sure makes Christmas cards a lot easier!

 

I have tried a few Etsy shops, but I've become very loyal to the shop MyStamp for their stamp quality and professional packaging.  I've shopped with them so much, they have extended a 10% discount for being a loyal customer.  If you end up ordering a few stamps a month from them, you should ask the shop owner Ray about the discount. ;)

I have sometimes questioned whether or not this is the best gift as so many people don't use snail mail these days.  (Call me old-fashioned, but I think more people should use snail mail.)  However, I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on the stamps from clients.  I think it's something they pull out a few times a month when paying bills or sending a thank you note, and, hopefully, they'll remember me when they do so.

Here are my favorite designs:

custom ADDRESS STAMP with PROOF, personalized pre inked address stamp, pre inked custom address stamp, return address stamp - Stamp b5-36

What's your go-to closing gift for clients?

What a great idea for a gift Whitney! It's certainly something that can be used right away too.

Whitney, this is certainly something I will check into. I believe it is a great closing gift. It seems to show added appreciation and care you have for your clients. Whenever they use it, they will also remember you.

Hi Whitney - a very appropriate gift and one that is certain to be used even if we use US mail a lot less.   Very nice packaging as well makes for an impressive presentation.
