Why Appreciation wins out over Self Promotion every single time

Education & Training with SendOutCards-Appreciation Marketing Expert

Here on a wonderful Monday afternoon reaching back and saying thanks…thanks for your most recent order….here at SendOutCards….to many of my clients.....


Did you know that less than 1% of all small or medium size businesses do not have an appreciation or follow up system to say thanks for business?  And in the real estate world where it is most necessary folks start and stop; start and stop; start and stop…and they wonder why their business is like a roller coaster regardless of the seasonal ups and downs…..



This above new listing on for $1.5 million dollars was generated by a box of brownies; a Thank YOU card; and a follow up phone call.  I received the lead from another agent who receives my cards and is now a client….I won the listing over 6 other agents who interviewed for the job….the return on the investment is ridiculous since the home will be renovated into condos and more professional service Fees will be earned in 2015 when the renovations are completed…..


$10 investment for a minimum $35K-$145k return?  …. 


As SOC continues to Rev up their systems and the world is reminded of how important REACHING back to say thanks…..I too want to say thanks for your business and wish you similar success Stacey and I are receiving here in the first half of 2014.










Thanks ~ Jay
