In this age of virtual-everything, the personal touch matters!

Writing greeting cards30 years ago, we would have thought nothing of receiving a hand-written note from a business contact, but in today’s age of email, Facebook, Tweets, texting, and instant messaging, we often forget that a pen and stamp is a great way to stand out from the crowd.

You can start today spending up to 30 minutes writing out a birthday or anniversary card to some of your contacts.  If you have their information, you can set them up on your calendar to remind you each day.

Purchase a large box of general birthday and anniversary cards, and each morning, check on who has an event coming up within the week.  Then just pull out that many cards, sign your name, write a short note if you wish, and address it. Simple as that!

Don’t have that type of information?  You may be able to find it on their social media sites if you are connected as well. If not, then use some creative ways of gaining that information. Or simply start asking!

If you have too many contacts to even consider taking the time to do this, there are some other options. You can use a service such as SendOutCards.  While not a truly personal touch, many people won’t know the difference.  You can even provide the service with your handwriting so it looks just like you wrote it.

Your in-office or virtual assistant can help as well.  Best Agent Business even offers handwritten notes and hand-addressed envelopes as a service.  The possibilities are many, but the results are the same: Your contacts will smile when they receive a personal note from you.  And they will remember it too!

Schedule a call with Steve Kantor to find out the many ways Best Agent Business can improve your real estate business’ marketing efforts.  We have a large team of excellent virtual real estate assistants to help you.
