Reaching people so they know we care....(You cant afford NOT to read!!)

I would have to say that as real estate agents one of the things that we lack in is keeping up with our past clients and our sphere in general, at least that is a big problem for me!

I always have the best intentions about sending a card, I think of doing it often but IF I get to the store to buy one half the time it never makes it to the post office or mail box.
Card
Not long ago I signed up for Brain Buffini’s self paced coaching, I love to hear him talk and he has such great advice for “living by referrals”! My thought process was that if I received the tools in the mail every month that I would be able to send out cards and items of value like I should.... I hate to admit it but I didn't follow through I sent a few but that is it.  Why? Because I still had to sit down and write the cards and stuff the envelop have the postage on hand to send the item.  This was a big #fail for me!

A colleuge at the office had told me about a service called “Send Out Cards” some time ago... I have even received these cards from other REALTORS in other places and they are VERY nice! I was very skeptical at that time because you had to invest three hundred something dollars and I was not convinced that I would use it.  

Just recently the company wanted to make it more achievable for everyone to give it a go! So now you can join for $9.80 a month and for that you get 20 points to spend on cards.... What does that mean you ask? If you were to buy a regular greeting card (two panel card) it would cost you 2 points (each point cost 49 cents) so the card cost you $1.00 and you personalize it to fit your needs.  Then you have your expense account that you set up with whatever you would like to put in there, I started mine with $25.  That is where they take the postage from .44 cents for the stamp. So total the card cost you $1.44! When was the last time you bought a REALLY nice card for $1.00?? So basically for your $10 you get to send 10 regular greeting cards or you could do 20 post cards if you like!

They have cards that you can customize with photos also! For example I have a client that just closed on their new home a few weeks ago and we are Facebook friends... I looked at their photos and there was a photo of their boys in the bath tub and one of them had their feet on the edge of the tub so that is what you see mostly in the photo.  I put that on the front of the card and on the inside wrote “here is hoping that those toes are getting just as clean in their new tub”. That cards cost me 3 points and the 44. cents to mail and they did all the work!!

I have since upgraded my account to the distributor membership because I love it SO much! The points now only cost me .32 cents so a two panel card only cost me $1.08 personalized AND mailed!!

If you would like to give it a try follow this link and watch the video to get some ideas on what you can do with it and then send a card for free! If you have any questions ASK! Let me know what you think...I cant wait to hear your thoughts!!

OMGosh Melissa, I had heard about Send Out Cards, but no one really explained how it worked. Very cool.

Melissa -- I have been hearing others who think this is a great idea too but have never checked it out. You made me head over there to see what I'm missing. Great idea!

I may be driving to FLorida in late August to take my son to college. Will be headed down 95 on August 22 or 23. Maybe we'll be able to meet in person?
