This is a Great Time to Touch Your Sphere of Influence

 

Fall is upon us and with that are thoughts of the upcoming holidays.  People that you know aren’t quite as focused on real estate right now.  Therefore, this is a great time to remind them to think about you by keeping your information in front of them – gently.

 

Every year, my business partner Will and I send out calendars for the upcoming year.  For the past couple of years, we have sent out magnetic calendars in hopes they would end up on the front of refrigerators.  The problem with these calendars is that it is difficult to read the actual calendar due to the small print.

 

calendarThis year, we decided to go all out and order full sized wall calendars.  They were about 75 cents more for each calendar, but I think they will be much more likely to hang around for a year.

 

We ordered the “Colorado Scenes” calendar and each month has a great picture of somewhere in our beautiful state.  They easily fit in a 9 x 12 envelope and should be hitting homes by next week.  We are going to try and hand deliver as many as we can so that we have a chance to say hello to our folks.  The others we will have to mail. 

 

I am looking forward to hearing the responses from our sphere.  I think they will be a hit.

 

If you are thinking about ordering calendars, check out Teldon Marketing at www.teldonmarketing.com.  We did lots of research and these folks had the best prices by far.

Tis the season.........already!  I'll check out your link and see if we can get a better deal than what we normally do.  I like the idea of using the larger calendar maybe even one with the Balloon Fiesta on it would be awesome.  Last year we sent 700 calendars with cards and hand written notes.  I've still got writers cramp but my wife insisted.  It did pay off and we got many thank you emails, calls, and cards sent to us from old and new clients.  The personal touch works.

Best regards from The Q

Hey Belinda, I like what John had to say about the personal note.  You have better handwriting, so guess you should start them.

Hi Belinda, I like the bigger calendar as well.  I have had people complain about the little ones for they can't see the numbers. The calendar you chose is lovely.  Thanks for sharing the company that you purchased these from.  I will have to check them out.  Have an enjoyable evening.

John,  I can't believe you send out 700 calendars.  Wow!  You must have had writers cramp for sure.

Judith,  They did a great job for a good price.  It is tough to spend money this time of year, but Will's credit card is always ready to go.
