How can you loose track of them when you are passing through
the area again, Hi it's me again, when you see them you will
remember their plans. Pay yourself or buy a 300 pound Olympic
barbell set and get strong for free in your basement/garage.

You will feel less scared approaching a door when you feel solid and strong, small but important fact and you cant buy
this from Mike Ferry you have to work for it.

I use door knocking as a key to growing relationships with prospective clients, and as a method of sweat equity PR. As a rule where I find no-one home I leave a business card at the door, and a note in the letter box "sorry I missed you".

Bang on, the short term leads are key but what you have stated
is vital to long term success.

I was putting together my marketing piece that I would stick/hang on the door if they werent home.

I am thinking along the lines of

I believe your home can be sold!

If I can't sell your home in 60 days I will pay you $1,000 dollars at closing!

I was going to use a image on $1000 and then have my image/logo under it. I thought of having a picture taken with me holding $1000 but that seemed crass.



or



the cashiers check would be photo shopped and made to look legit.

I am not sure of the wording of the ad copy. Maybe "I will sell your in 60 days or pay you $1,000 at closing"

/\ Agreed. The first image is definitely catchier.

You think a $1000 bill will pull better than a photoshopped cashiers check?

Also I was thinking of adding a list of free toll free report ads on the backside.

Something like "Free report: 5 Ways to Legally Avoid Forclosure"

"Free report: What to do if you bought your home for more than its worth today"

"Free Home Value Anaylsis: What is my home worth?"

"Free report: What to do when you are 30-90 days late on your mortgage"

or something with a toll free response line. Any ad copy ideas?

Don't have a clue why you would want to offer up your fee
from the get go.

Those heading are brutal, I had no idea that you guys were
dealing with some heavy stuff.

Be like a Yogi all pure and perfect and just speak to people,
Mike is a big believer in this and he never carried promotional
material with him when he door knocked. Be a gift of yourself
as Emmerson or Thoreau talked about.

hunter,
its called marketing ..lol..

and that program comes with conditions..
you want a 60 day guarantee..i need a 60 day price...
its also something that seperates you from all the other 1,000 me too agents in the market..
i usually like to throw in to the prospect..
now mr seller, did any other realtor offer you that?
did any other realtor offer to put thier money where they mouth is?
what happens if they cant sell your home? will they be penalized..
and real estate is no different..
we all as consumers like money back guarantees..
besides the #1 agent in the world at age 29 and the #1 agent for remax in canada for 10 years...
ran those offers ..selling over 500 homes per year...
who am I to argue with those kind of results...


and its human nature to knock something they never tried...
like saying prospecting doesnt work..
or door knocking doesnt work

or marketing doesnt work..

better to ask..how does this work..ni?

Never tried it... I did 16 thousand doors a year for 5-7
years and I know how many call backs I got from leaving
stuff at the door. The only thing flyers are good for is
you can count off your attempts at home before you head out.

Why don't you go out and make 100,000.00 attemtps and then come
back and talk to us about it.

Little John here has a banner that he stole from Mike Ferry
about netting out some money at the end. I doubt Major Mike
has changed his ways or become Craig Proctors boyfriend..

Neither. Why wouldnt I leave something on their door if they aren't there. For about $200-300 a month I can leave 3000+ door hangers.or made a net profit at the end of the year in the worst case scenario. If I sell 1 property from them I have broken even on simply adding 2 seconds to the process. Why wouldnt I want to have a territory and leave something 4 time a year?

Prospecting is the steak, anything from the marketing pieces is gravy. I like gravy.. don't you?

Ja, I like gravy too but the out of the blue "Come help me with
my real estate dilema" were a result of me meeting the person
and handing them a newsletter. These people didn't mention anything about moving they just looked at me in a curious
manner.

But hey if you think this will improve your chances of winning the lottery then you will jump out of bed, shine your shoes and
hit the road with a big grin on your face which wont hurt at all.

I think I figured things out. At a young age Mike Ferry was
aware that he had a "wondering eye" and realized that this
could cost him a ton of money. Knowing this he always kept
his expenses very low and never left flyers on doors that
no one was home. His intuition served him very well and
at the end of the day he is still a "well to do" happy camper.
