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.

Celebrating Moms with a Client Appreciation Event

I decided to celebrate moms with a client appreciation Mother's Day event. Teaming up with another agent in my office, we discreetly went through our databases and invited all the dads to come by and pick up a free spring bouquet for the moms in their life.

Working with a local florist, we assembled small bouquets of flowers and had them ready for pick up on the Saturday prior to Mother's Day. We set up tables in the office parking lot and provided some refreshments and some easy crafts for the kids to make for mom. It was a fun afternoon and the dads loved being able to bring the kids to participate!   

Here's just a sampling of the feedback I received:

"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all of the Mother's Day treats. You are always so creative and thoughtful. Lily was SO proud of her card, mug, and flowers. It all was beyond adorable. Thank you for helping the husbands out!!!  Andrea

I've heard of another agent who used this way of appreciating her clients by giving away pies at Thanksgiving. She was my inspiration! It got me thinking doesn't have to be limited to Thanksgiving, or any holiday for that matter. Finding a way to say thank you to your clients for their business and their referrals works any time of the year!

I'll take this opportunity to say thank you for YOUR business! If you have clients coming to beautiful San Diego, I'm never too busy for your referrals!

Orange Picking!

It's orange picking time in southern California and I was invited to an orange picking party at the home of one of the landscapers in my business to business network. I could pick all the oranges that I wanted, so I picked enough to put together some pop by gifts and do some cross marketing. You can do the same thing just by picking up some oranges from the grocery store!

I purchased some brown gift bags from a bag wholesale company at 62 cents each. Then I made a pop by tag that read:

"Orange you glad to see the housing market making a comeback? Call me if you would like a housing market update on your neighborhood."

On the back: From the grove of...and attached my clients business card.

Easy and inexpensive! Hope you enjoy dropping off some bags of oranges to your own clients. And don't forget...If you have any family or friends moving to San Diego, I'm never to busy for YOUR referrals!

My Idea of a SUPER BOWL!

Ready to call on your clients and give them something to remember you by? Here's an idea that capitalizes on the Super Bowl theme. A Maxine cartoon was my inspiration.

The cartoon said, "My idea of a Super Bowl is a toilet that cleans itself." Don't you just love her humor! I went down to my local dollar store and found some blue toilet bowl cleaners. You know the kind--cleans with every flush--just drop in the disc and it goes to work! Wa-lah!

I clipped a picture of the Maxine cartoon off of the internet and created a tag on card stock to fit the back of the packaging (6x6). "Now every time you flush you'll think of me...Ha!"

Here's the finished pop by gift:

Hopefully this is something for you to remember ME by :) If you have any clients moving to beautiful, sunny San Diego, I'm never too busy for your referrals!
