Closing gift: Give flowers or a vacation? The memories of a vacation last a lifetime. Plus, the referrals generated can create more sales.
Relocation package: In a competitive market? Give yourself an advantage by offering something unique-a vacation.
Lead generation: Place a raffle box at a local business or at a home show to get hundreds of leads of potential buyers.
Referral mailings: Create a database of past clients and send them a letter offering to donate a vacation to a charity of their choice when they send you a referral that buys or sells real estate with you.
Gifts: Give as a gift to past clients who have sent business to you.
Recruitment: Many brokers use the program to recruit new agents by giving them an additional incentive – free vacations.
Donation: A week to a local fund-raiser.
Office contests: Many brokers use the certificate as a prize for an office contest – most closings in a month, most listings in a quarter, etc.
