Planning for the holiday season can be quite a task for real estate professionals. It is, however, a wonderful opportunity to spark conversation and intrigue surrounding your business. This blog will highlight some ideas to get you started on your winter holiday planning. We hope you like these ideas and have a successful winter!
Share your gratitude this month! Send your clients and loved ones gift baskets or something in the mail or better yet, in person. There are many companies and small businesses you can hire to take care of sending out these gifts on your behalf or you can take it upon yourself to check out websites like Pinterest or Instagram to DIY. Organizing a food drive or another charitable event is also a fantastic way to give back while also getting to network with your community. Don’t forget to share photos of yourself and your family on social media accounts to keep up to date and create a connection with your following as well!
Black Friday / Small Business Saturday
Everyone loves a deal, especially with winter holidays meaning gift buying for most consumers. There are many ways you can take advantage of these two similar holidays. For Black Friday, which is always the Friday after Thanksgiving, it could be an interesting idea to offer a discounted fee on any listings you take on Black Friday. Please speak to your broker before offering this promotion but it could bring some excited sellers your way! Small Business Saturday, which is the day after Black Friday, could invite some opportunities to show your support of small businesses and network with business owners in your area. Offer to create a brand deal with a small business where you can provide your clients and followers with a discount code. You can also ask small business owners for referrals by simply asking them on your social media accounts.
In conclusion, the holiday season is a prime time for real estate professionals to not only strategize their business and end the year strong but also to connect with their clients and community in unique ways. From expressing gratitude through thoughtful gestures during Thanksgiving to exploring promotional opportunities on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, there are numerous avenues for you to make an impression and build strong connections. Whether you choose to send out heartfelt gift baskets, organize charitable events, or collaborate with local businesses, the holiday season is a time for spreading warmth and forging valuable relationships. We hope these ideas inspire you to embark on a successful winter filled with meaningful connections and fruitful endeavors. Happy holidays!
