The holidays are always a great time to drop in on your clients and say hello. Beginning with Halloween, I have a couple of fun things that you can try! I was at my local craft store today and picked up a Martha Stewart book on holiday craft ideas. I will be the first to admit that I am no Martha Stewart...not even close, but I did get a little inspiration from the book which I decided to adapt for a pop by.
Back to the brown paper lunch bag...I love this because it's so cheap :) You can decorate your bags any way you want to, but since I'm not the most creative when it comes to decorating, I needed a little help. I found some black "caution tape" with a pirate head that I thought would be super easy. $4 for the roll and I was ready to get started. My first challenge was what to put IN the paper bag. Naturally, since it's for Halloween, candy is the first thing to come to mind. But I was thinking more along the lines of popcorn just in case I had to leave it on the front porch, so that's what I went in search for. What I found were these cute individual bags of white cheddar rice & corn puffs. They were in Halloween pirate wrapping and for just a little over $5 for a package of 6. I bought 3 bags, so for approximately $19, I could make 18 pop bys!
Here is what I did: I took the lunch sack and turned down the top about 2 inches. Then I wrote Trick or Treat? I stuffed the pirate bag of white cheddar rice & corn puffs inside the paper bag and turned down the top. I attached the pop by tag to the back of the bag like this:
It says: I know just the TRICK. Refer your friends & clients to me and I will TREAT them with the highest level of service! Be sure and add your name & number. Then I just wrapped a piece of the caution tape around the bag and here's the finished product!
This cute little pumpkin was my pop by idea last year. Same tag, just printed in color and stuck in the pumpkin with a toothpick. Be creative and decorate your pumpkin any way that inspires you!
Have a safe and happy Halloween! And remember, if any of your friends or clients are moving to San Diego, I'm never too busy for YOUR referrals!
Hello from sunny San Diego! If you work by referral, you may be familiar with the "pop by" gift as a way of connecting with your clients. I love browsing the web for fresh ideas and have decided to share some of my own. I hope you find them as easy and fun to give away as I have. And remember, if you have clients who are moving to San Diego...I am never too busy for YOUR referrals! I would be honored to help them with their real estate needs.
