Now is a great time to pop by to your favorite clients with a special, spring-themed treat to thank them for their business and referrals (and remind them you’re never too busy for more!). Spring is seen as the busiest time of the market as many buyers start their search for a new home and sellers begin to prepare their homes to list. Think of it this way: Just as you plant the seeds for your flowers and vegetables in the spring, so too should you plant the seeds for referrals. Here are a few seasonal Pop-By ideas to get started.
Cleaning tools: Many people spend the rainy days of spring giving their homes a thorough cleaning, regardless of whether or not they’re thinking of selling. Drop off rubber gloves, sponges and buckets to help them with the process.
Gardening stuff: For the gardeners in your database, deliver tools, gloves, seeds or even a potted plant or a pack of plant starts to help them get their gardens going.
Sunscreen and bug spray: As the temperatures warm up, many people head outside to enjoy the sunshine. Show you care by delivering sunscreen or bug spray to protect them while they’re outdoors.
Easter baskets with candy: If your clients celebrate the holiday and have children (or pets), drop off an Easter basket, filled with candy, inexpensive toys and bubbles (or pet treats and toys for those with fur-kids).
Umbrellas: April showers may bring May flowers, but no one likes to get wet in the process. A small umbrella will help you clients stay dry.
Pop-Bys are a great way to connect with your clients and show you care. When you deliver them and follow the rest of the work by referral system, you can leverage the stacking effect and build strong relationships with your clients.
