    Walking Billboards
    I give out t-shirts that have my company’s logo on the front and my contact information on the back. The most effective people to target for my giveaway are those who work outside in the public eye. Gas station attendants, ice-cream stand workers, landscapers, and others who do outdoor work are the best. I also give t-shirts to all of those nice people who allow me to place my “directional” signs on their front lawn; not only do they let me use their lawn for my sign, but they get a free shirt … and I get more free advertising!
    --Kurt H. Krug, Coldwell Banker McMahan Co., Bardstown, Ky.
  • 15. Give Away Money
    One of my favorite prospecting techniques involves a short personalized letter mailed to home owners in a targeted neighborhood. The letter is titled “First of Many,” beneath which is taped a crisp new $1 bill and my message:
    “When you’re ready to sell, I have hundreds of thousands more of these dollar bills to give you from my highly qualified
    and serious buyers.”
    The cost of doing this is generally less than that of a novelty gift such as a pen, calendar, or magnet, and it has a dramatic impact. Most people will remember who sent them free money, and many of them have felt a need to reciprocate by listing their home with me.
    --Gary D. Singer, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Springfield

  • 16. Don’t Skimp on Business CardsI hand out business cards to everyone. I carry them everywhere, including in a leather pouch on my key chain. I’ve received business from someone who picked up a card that I left at a gas pump and from someone who takes dance lessons at the same place I do. I leave a card at the register of every business I walk into, with every sales clerk, inside pay folders at restaurants, and on doors of FSBOs. In every conversation I have, I say:
    “By the way I'm also an experienced real estate professional and a REALTOR® and if you or someone you know ever needs a REALTOR® you can count on, please put my card in a safe place like your wallet so you can contact me.”
    I try to go through about 4,000 cards a year, and I’m trying to up that figure. This has made me money.
