You just received a new real estate client- congratulations!
You want to show them your gratitude, make them feel cared for and to give them a personal welcome. After all, you want repeat clients!
However, small gifts could be expensive and too generic. So what do you do?
All of a sudden a light bulb turns on- why don’t you send them a handmade thank you card? It’s impersonal enough that you can use the same card for multiple clients, which means you can buy them in bulk to save costs, and it’s still thoughtful enough to show genuine gratitude!
Problem solved, right?
But, you do not have the time to make these cards yourself. And even if you did, you would have to buy supplies, and it just doesn’t seem worth it.
You ask your virtual assistant to do some research and the next day, she calls you and exclaims, “Jules! I found the perfect solution. Why don’t you order some pre-made thank you cards online? I found this great shop called Thoughtfully Handmade, and she’s an entrepreneur too! She does discount prices for bulk orders! I mean we love supporting local small businesses and fellow entrepreneurs! I found a design that matches your brand too, although if you don’t like it, we can ask her to make a custom order for us.”
And your VA proceeds to send you this:
It’s beautiful, and it matches your brand. You decide to order them right away. And because you both live in Toronto, the owner, Yandy calls you and asks if you want to pick it up, so you don’t have to pay for the expensive shipping. Of course, you say yes because you’ll do anything for no shipping costs.
You give it to your clients the next time you see them, and they love it! Your clients feel cared for, and when you successfully sell their house, they recommend you to all of their friends.
If you want this exact card, check it out here. If you would like to ensure repeat customers, fill out the form on my Custom Orders page, and I’ll get in contact with you! Not ready to buy yet? Not a problem- pin the image above, and it'll be here for when you're ready (well, maybe not this exact design).
