Could there be a closing gift that is valuable to clients AND keeps reminding them of you for years to come? I’m not talking about giving them a simple magazine subscription here. This is one of the most unique ideas I’ve seen in a long time. But more than that—it works to bring referrals multiple times a year, without having to give the gift more than once. If you’re interested in what this is all about and if it could work for you…
Check out agent Stan Vaught’s description and an image of his unusual closing gift…“I have always struggled with the perfect closing gift. It’s difficult to have one idea that matches all clients and is useful all year long. It would be great to have a gift that will remind them of you and also have your contact information handy when they need you again. I really wanted to take advantage of the ‘memory power’ of the ladies (and we all know how big their role is in the decision process in real estate). And I noticed how popular the seasonal mailbox flags are in my area and how much my wife enjoys changing ours…and the idea took off from there… Now, before you see my idea…you need to know it’s kind of a ‘wacky’ gift. But the fact that it’s DIFFERENT (they can get this unique gift nowhere else), and VALUABLE (it gives clients something special they enjoy), makes it a winner for me. Here’s how I create what I call the ‘Perfect Closing Gift For All Occasions’ in 3 easy steps (with picture below): STEP 1: Get Your Materials Go to a local ‘flag store’ and get the following:
- 5 seasonal flags
- 1 flag hanger that screws into the wooden mailbox post
- 1 plastic, multi-slot, file folder that comes with a hook attached to allow it to be hung in a closet.
