A tip for everyone whether in Real Estate or any kind of business to set yourself apart in the world of customer followup. It is
A Customer Technique To Make Them Smile.
It is called boring old "snail mail."
In today's electronic age with emails whizzing back and forth, set yourself apart with an "occasional" thank you card, followup handwritten note, just thinking of you card. Hand write it. Insert a news clipping. If you are great with photos put that in there.
I prefer the great cards at the card store or a WalMart and have mastered picking out cards when I find the time. I purchase them ahead of time and store them for future use. I prefer their greater variety, wider texture and being able to insert things in them.
For those not as organized as that, there are companies like SendOutCards you can use that you can order them off the web and they'll even apply the postage, mail them out, and "look" like hand written cards.
The reason I know this technique works to build relationships and spread smiles is I LOVE getting something other than junk mail in the mail and others tell me they do too.
So don't think that mail truck going through your neighborhood is a dinosaur just yet. It may be showing others you come in contact with that YOU are the one work with, and just maybe you care A LOT more than the average person.
