Are you taking time during the Holidays to reach out to past clients?


I love this time of year! December is full of holiday activities, winding up business, reviewing our business plan for the next year and making time to touch base with clients! You are making time to touch base with your clients, aren’t you?


I like to deliver Poinsettias to clients I worked with this past year and those I’m working with right now. I’ve been delivering Poinsettias since November 30th and I’m almost done. It’s been fun to visit and see how my clients are doing and to thank them for the opportunity to work with and for them this year. I hope you’re making time for your clients..I enjoy catching up with them and I know you would take pleasure in a visit with yours too!

Dorie, Yes, It's a great time for our Pop Bys with some nice gifts for our past and present clients. Starting early is the key to getting it all done.

Good morning Dorie. I too like the Christmas season as it gives us an opportunity to give back to those who have helped support us through the year. It often reminds me of what the late Stephen Covey said, "Start with the end in mind."

Dorie, I love the way you do this every year. It is such a great "giving."

Your clients are saying "Dorie's poinsetta will look great right there."

Merry Christmas!

Dorie- your joy is infectious!  I love how instead of dreading this time of year, you relish in it... and isn't that how it should be.

Yes...I try to touch my data base at least 6 times a year.  Christmas, I try to do a little more.  It always pays off.


Merry Christmas!

I've sent out cards to most of my contacts. But to those who have bought or sold, I will also deliver Poinsettias just after Thanksgiving.  My clients love them and it gets me face to face to catch up with them again.

Delivering Poinsettia's is a wonderful treat for your clients.  Everytime they look at them they will be reminded of you! Great idea!

Dorie Dillard there is no reason for not to get in touch with the clients during this season! Excellent way to re-establish the relationship - even if you have not talked to them for the whole year (or years)

How timely!  On my agenda today is the making of my homemade cookies, and tomorrow afternoon the delivery of the same.  This is fun!

A terrific suggestion, Dorie, about the poinsettias. I stay in touch with my past clients all year long and ramp it up a bit at holiday season. I've just sent out some holiday music CD's to clients who purchased this year to help them enjoy their first Christmas in their new home.

We just sent out our annual Christmas cards.  It's a way to get in front of them with just a little effort.

Duh...I'd never thought of that.  I love poinsettias, and so, it would be easy and personal, as well as well received.

What a great idea....better than cookies since the flowers will surely last longer.
