I agree on the discount talks. It gets boring actually to hear the same people discuss how they have nothing against any business model but 90% of what they say is anti other models. If those models are that bad then keep it hush and profit off their mistakes. If those brokers are that unethical then report them to the authorities.

At the end of the day it's fear of change.

Back to the CD cards. I like the idea a lot but I wasn't thinking about a generic business card like those we see offered by every agent. What if you could create a card to look and feel like one of those CD cards. Add a little spice and value into it. Might be easier to add content and resources to a website than cd cards.
Perhaps a better question is how can we increase the value of our business cards? What can we put on there to make it stand out? As I see it there's not much you can do in terms of design
on a cd card that you can't do for biz cards
except maybe the weight.

This thread has got to be the longest in the history of this site. Hey who's going to win the super bowl this year?

Every market is a little different. I have just found nice bussiness cards are placed in someones wallet and they come out when they remember. You idea will work to a point. A nice fancy bussiness card one keeps. I do that. I want somethign that other pass out. They do not really pas out my bussiness card unless I have their home listed and they want a potential buyer to call me. Please keep in mind I do not pass my CD's out to just everyone like I do cards. IE like you said cost. I pass them out to people I feel will like them and pass them out for me. Thats the idea is to get them to pass them out for me.

That I totally agree with and its what drives most of the negative talk.

Yes it is. However we are all talking thats nice. As to superbowl. Are you asking me with my head, heart, or dreamworld. Dreamworld Miami of course. . Heart Go Buc's. Head Carolina and Jacksinville scare me the most. Winning the superbowl a lot of times is not generally the best football team. Its who is both lucky and playing their best in January. Carolina is just starting to come on strong at the right time and so is jacksinvill. I just kinda feel its Carolinas time.

Those costs a little more but I found out they was more of a novilty and got passed out more. Plus I found they actually saved them for years.

Hey its more effective when you can get others to do your marketing for you. Its almost like refferals.
Wow, That's a great idea. Imagine the response you could get with a printable CD that featured a picture of the clients home on the CD itself.

I'm not sure what the print to CD printers cost but that could generate the novelty you had with the smaller CDs you had earlier.

Actually its called burning a CD and believe it or note its not anything seperate or special. Most computers today have a CD reader that also burns. In fact windows 98 and XP usually comes with the software.

CD burners are a dime a dozen. However I had someone burn some DVDs last year and put a custom photo on the front, and I've seen hardware that allows the user to print to the front of the CD... while burning the back.

Now that I look at the DVD it's just a label.

When you do a report is the front of the CD standard with your marketing info... or customized to the client?

One of my college jobs was at Kinkos' and always thought the little binding machine was flimsy... they CD is a much higher WOW for me.

Customized to the client. They have to take ownership for it to work. DVD are still to expensive to make it work. CD burners are a dime a dozen Did you not just say that.

Well if its a higher WOW for you think of your clients. Would it not be a hgiher WOW for them. There you go the whole bases for why I do what I do. Case proved.

I've always had a thing for Jacksonville but I'm 100% NFC. smile

I was thinking along the line of half prepaid calling cards and half business branding. I could recharge the cards once a month but then who pays for long distance these days? You get the idea. I am not talking about the generice big smile with color balloon cards.

Its may be just my market but I found the prepaid calling cards is a nice closing gift but not a marketing tool. Its one of those things that have a shelve life. As soon as min are used it going into the trash.

I've always had a thing for Jacksonville but I'm 100% NFC.
I to like the NFC. There are some good teams there. However its the play off time of year and no ones sceems to want it and is stepping up to the plate so to speak. Like I said its not alwasy the best team theat wins the super bowl but the one that plays the best ball at the right time and also wants it the most. Look at NE are they the best team in the NFL not relly they can be beat. However in the last 5 yeasr they just sceem to step up to the plate at the end of the season and they loose a the begining of the season. Simple enough.
