Q: “Denise, I am thinking about ordering some box candies so I can drop by my past clients’ homes when I am in the neighborhood. What do you think?”
A: I have never been a fan of this idea because I don’t like it when people drop in on me. Many people these days are very protective of their privacy and theft is an issue. So I would encourage you to tweak your plan a bit. What if instead you:
1. Sent them something in the mail?
2. Started a drop-by tradition such as delivering pumpkins at Halloween or pies at Thanksgiving? This way they expect it each year.
3. Have a pick up instead for the above so that instead of delivering pumpkins or pies they are picking them up at your office or somewhere where they can stop in for some hot cider before hitting the road?
4. Create something in conjunction with an annual property report and send it with that.
I think it is great that you are thinking of your past clients! Good work!
