A little Sampling of "Over and Above Marketing" for clients in Owensboro, KY

By
Real Estate Agent with Maverick Realty

 I just wanted to take a few minutes to share a cute "little" idea (one of the many ideas)  I use for my clients in Owensboro, KY....This particular one is 6773 Kingston Drive in Owenboro, Kentucky in The Summit Golf and Country Club Community...

Miniature house cards

These little cards are about half the size of a business card...

Perfect sized mini house cards to show off a home

They are the perfect size to fit in the palm of your hand and to freely hand out to buyers

palm sized house cards are Handy to give out

Just recently I was able to hand out four different mini house cards at my open house to buyers

store 100 different houses in this box

I ordered these (100 cards)from Moo.com~ They are a company from England.  With shipping it was less than $30.00 and they come with a miniature reusable plastic box for storage.

Now, I have found that you can make these yourself, but the quality is not as good and the paper is not as thick.  My sellers love them and the buyers do too.  I give my sellers plenty so they can hand them out too! Talk about Viral marketing!  I leave them every where I go because they are small enough to fit into my wallet or purse and everyone loves them because they are the perfect size and a cinch to mail.  They are different and are sure to make you stand out as a Marketing Guru that isn't afraid to be different and stand out in the crowd! 

Sample of what to put on the back of mini card  

This is a sampling of what I have put on the back side of the card.  It will push them to go and visit your website for more information. It shows that you are different and will always go the extra mile for your clients...

Isn't that something that we all strive for?  I don't know about you, but I LOVE being different and using unusual marketing ideas and making my houses stand out, don't you?  Go and check them out at Moo.com

unusual marketing ideas

Go ahead.  Stand out and be different.  Your sellers will love you for it!

I love unique marketing ideas and I love this one for sure! Something quick and easy to do, with marketing for the agent on the back that stays.  This is a great idea!

Renae~ This would be real simple for you to do for the agents you help.  You can get them done at Staples for $1.04 for a pageful, then just cut them out with a paper cutter, presto 30+ marketing cards!

Hi Roger~ Nope, no feature!  Too late for that.  The most important thing is that I shared something so simple, so easy and so effective for everyone to use and sellers love it as well as the buyers. Thanks for the compliments and I appreciate you reading and taking the time to comment on here and on the re-blog on Renae's post!

what a terrific and creative idea. An excellent method to get sellers involved in selling their home. I will ask my printing company if they can do it too.

I love those Moo cards - and so does everyone who gets one.  They tend to keep them instead of just throwing them away.

Vickie,

Are the house pictures the actual picture of the listing you have?

This sounds interesting.

BTY, I need to build me a new header. Did you do yours? I notices a blank space on far right of yours!

Vickie,

I like the idea.  I'll have to look into it.  Who knows they may become collectors pieces like baseball cards.

I've been doing business card house advertising for 5 years now, I keep a few, but most I give to the seller to hand out at work at the grocery store, heck even church. At church you know they want to live in the area and if you hear them talking real estate, hand them your house and say "THIS IS FOR SALE"

This is a great idea.  It would be a great way to market some of the homes that I have staged.  If I made cards for each of them to hand out as examples of my work, it may attract potential buyers as well.  Maybe this is something that I could go in with the listing agent with.  Thanks for sharing your great idea - I really appreciate it!
