Candy IS Dandy...and One More Way to Market YOU !

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

   There are lots of things that we are doing differently this year...and have employed this quarter.  Some of them are due to our EXP move and since not every  member of AR is a Realtor ...we thought we would share something we started doing that is getting great "reception"in a number of "reception areas" and something you can do as a Realtor, Lender....any member of AR that has the public as opposed to a business to business clientele.

   Every six weeks we visit the reception areas of the businesses that work with us on this "sweet reminder"of our business.  We find a dish that is "seasonally themed"....a heart for Valentine's...Green St.Pat's...pastel for get the idea...and fill it with assorted  candy. "Sprinkled" conspicuously throughout the candy are our business cards. 

    If you are "crafty" you can even make some memorable containers like this back to school crayon candy dish.

   Suggestions  you may be able to use for "placement"of your sweet reminders include - Nail and Hair Salons, Dentist,  Doctor, Lawyer and investment advisors offices...let your network be your guide.

   It isn't hard to do...the businesses appreciate it....the people in the waiting room love it...and there you are...with one more way for people to know who you are and what you do....plugging in to another network of potential  clients.

  This has been a marketing suggestion post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty, honored to be of service for all things real estate in southeastern Wisconsin.

What a great idea - a "sweet reminder!"     I'm going to ask a couple of my key businesses if they'd consider doing this with me!

Nicely done- I could see where this idea would work in a number of different environments and subtly advertise.

Love the candy dish! Things that are creative that you've done yourself are always more memorable. 


Since I'm not in town often, I go to See's Candies and get a pound of assorted chocolates for my title company gals. Since it's wrapped in paper, I hand sign the top of it....recently wrote, Just Cuz! Love, Gayle 

Not only do we need to spread our cards around to those offices that you suggest, but say a big thank you to our teams that help us. I did the same thing for the big office that I'm never in, as the receptionist, transaction coordinator and my principal broker are there. I did a Just Cuz for them as well! 

Candy is always popular unless you're visiting the dentist!

That's a pretty creative, and tasy, marketing idea that I bet is much appreciated by the vendors, and those that help your business cards, too, I hope!
