For those in real estate, November means one thing: seasonal marketing, and lots of it. Rather than inundate your clients with emails and postcards, show your appreciation this Thanksgiving with a gesture of gratitude. Whether you’re planning to check in via pop-by or phone call, build a better client relationship with these budget-friendly gifts.
Luggage tags – If you have clients hitting the road this holiday, consider giving them luggage tags. DiscountMugs.com has a variety of styles to choose from, and many cost less than a dollar.
Pot holders – For anyone prepping a holiday meal this season, a pot holder is a must. The Dollar Tree sells them by the case for – you guessed it – a buck each.
Basters – It’s no wonder homeowners misplace these things – most only make an appearance once a year! For the lowest prices, buy direct from a restaurant supply dealer.
Turkey trimmings – Even if your client’s not hosting Thanksgiving , a packet of seasoning or gravy mix can be used all year round. McCormick, Spice Islands and Simply Organic sell inexpensive fixin’s, and some can even be bought in bulk for pennies on eBay.
Thank you cards – Nothing beats a handwritten note. Instead of purchasing Thanksgiving-themed cards, pick up an assortment of thank you cards. They’re economical and equally as meaningful.
If you’re looking for a unique way to express gratitude for your clients, consider doling out these gifts. There’s no better time to reconnect – ‘tis the season for giving, after all!
How will you thank clients this year?
