Realty One Group
Over the years the realtor marketing materials have changed. I received a packaged dry sponge in a wrapper saying soak it in the water watch your American dollar($) grow. A whistle says : "Whistle for Sam". A fly swatter with printing like "Sam will eradicate your fly." I have not yet received a pot holder as the cost of creating them is way more than before.
This notepad above with my own design cost me ~$0.35 each and that was 10+ years ago. I have occasionally received some cheap black and white notepads that I trashed them as soon as I receive them.
I used a sewing kit left at my apartment door while in college. It had some threads, needles. Over the years, I used that kit many times to sew buttons on shirts.
The other day I went through a probate sale home just acquired. I find things of interest and keep it in my collection.
Inside I find some writing paper(below). Apparently, the deceased owner kept it in case she wanted to look for a realtor. The hairdo of the realtor suggested it was popular around 1960s. The low California DRE number shows her license is granted 1.8 million earlier than new licensees. I have seen "004" licensees in CA still showing homes with a walking cane. But not those before 1970s.
She apparently moved to rural northern California and passed away 29 years ago.
The way they provide marketing materials have changed. But it still works. My magnet from 2005 still hangs at people's refrigerator and I got a call the other day.
You want to leave something people can use. Internet messages get filtered and removed instantly. Unsolicited text msg often become source of a written complaints or get blocked. In my case I market with different recipes so they can hold on to. A few clients tell me they have a good collection and will use me.
What marketing material have you used and what are effective? Please share your experience.
