Support the Troops!!!

Support the Troops… well the Girl Scout Troops that is!  Our oldest daughter Lily is a 4th generation Girl Scout.  She hit the streets for the first time today selling Girl Scout cookies.  My first experience in sales and business came as I sold cookies door-to-door as a child.   These young girls learn essential skills like financial literacy, innovation, and reaching goals through cookie sales. 

So when an little girl knocks at your door in the next few weeks… make her day and order a bunch for clients. My clients love this pop-by gift.  I order 40 boxes of Thin Mints each year and hand them out for St Patrick’s day.  The Buffini website has a great tag already created for you… just access it in the member area.

My February Pop-by!!!

4

 Below is a post about the February pop-by I did last year.  I went into Target this weekend and found the little $1 mailboxes in the dollar spot again!!! So I filled up my cart.  Run… do not walk… to Target and stock-up.  This pop-by is a winner. 

 

How was the  start to your New Year? My february pop-by is too cute and easy not to share.  I am delivering 50 pop-bys in the next 2 weeks before Valentine’s week.  So here they are… cute little metal mailboxes with Valentine’s candy inside.  I bought the little mailboxes at the dollar spot in Target for you guessed it… $1 each.  I went to Winco and bought tons of bulk Valentine’s candy.  The total cost was $2 each. 

I used a sharpie to personalize the mailbox with the client’s name.  You can do this as you walk up to the door.  Never underestimate the impact of personalizing a pop-by… people love to see their name!

The tagline: Know someone looking to change their “address”? Don’t “letter” them move without calling me first.  For a “first-class” experience call… Peggy Urieff Realtor 916-622-3787

Here’s some pictures of the candy!!! It has been very hard to keep these from our girls!!!

Other quick options would be big red chocolate lips ($2 each) with a Tagline: “Thank you for ‘talking’ up my business!”

Or a cute little honey bear ($3 each) with the Tagline: “Wishing you a ‘beary’ sweet Valentine’s Day… from your honey of a realtor.” 

Well, I have the car loaded and I am off to do my pop-bys.  For more pop-by ideas… see my earlier post for February ideas here http://www.popbyideas.com/?p=153

My November Pop-by!!!

4

Hi Peeps,

How are those November pop-bys going?  You still have time to blitz some out in the next 9 days.  I have a perfect and easy pop-by for you… advent calendars.   I bring one for each kid in the family every year.  Adults like the nostagia of them as well.  I got plenty of stares buying a 100 advent calendars at Trader Joes for 99 cents each.  If you don’t have a Trader Joes nearby, you should move.  :) Or I guess you could just buy them at Cost Plus World Market and most  drug stores. 

 

 A special shout out to Gloria and Albert Yu for their taglines for the advent calendars www.gloriayuhomes.com/.

TAGLINE: “You can always count on Peggy for your real estate needs.” or

“You can always count on Peggy to take care of you and your referrals.”

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We all have a lot to be thankful for.  I am reading an impactful book right now on gratitude called…  One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp A great read for this time of year.

My September Pop-by?

7

As I attend Buffini events, the most common questions I get from people is what pop-by am I doing now or what is your favorite pop-by?  Last year in September I gave out little baskets of apples… you can read that post here http://www.popbyideas.com/?m=201009.  My clients love them… but the logistics of delivering apples in the Sacramento Valley heat was tricky.

So this year, I found these boxes of apple crisp topping (some call it apple crumble) at our local grocery store Winco for $1.60.  You just mix with butter and sprinkle on top of sliced apples… my family’s favorite go-to dessert. 

I get tons of emails every year asking… how do you do the labels?  Just get a sheet of address labels and type a little saying.  You can also just slap a business card on it with an “Oh by the way” sticker.  I wouldn’t spend a lot of time on this.   Here is a picture of the one I did.  I just made a text box in word inserted a picture, typed the message, and printed on regular paper. 

TAGLINE: “No matter how you ‘slice’ it,
you and your referrals are the ‘core’ of my business.”

TAGLINE: “Interest rates in the low 4s… how do ya like them apples? Know any renters who want to take their piece of the real estate pie?”

ANOTHER LITTLE TIP FOR YOU: Have a box that you just use for pop-bys.  I know it sounds simple, but having a consistent container and place for your pop-bys will help you win the day.   Our oldest daughter Lily started kindergarten a few weeks ago (see picture below).  Her first homework assignment was to figure out where she was going to put her homework at home.  Where is your pop-by homework?

We’ll folks, thank you again for your Sacramento area real estate referrals.   I have my iced coffee in hand and am about to load the pop-bys in my car to see my peeps.  My Michael Jackson remix tape will make the pop-by trip more enjoyable.  I have a lot of pop-bys to do and so do you. Now…Let’s beat it!

It’s a good life!

Daughters- Tilly (2yrs), Milly (1 yr), and Lily (6yrs).  Lily rides english and just won 1st place at the Sac Horseman’s competition.  This picture of her makes me want to work harder… sell more homes… do more pop-bys.  :)
