Hello, everyone. Rick Boone of Loganville, GA here (eastern Atlanta suburb). Am putting together a marketing booth for a local town festival in a few weeks. Have never done this before. Any ideas that you would be willing to share for marketing pieces, contact capture, etc.? Will be glad to repost a summary so that all can benefit....

Thanks in advance,

Just brainstorming…

how about a 15 minute presentation… first-time home buyer & first time home seller

Have chairs so people can sit (everyone gets tired at festivals, don’t they?)

Here’s the highlights…. in 15 minutes or less.

Here’s my business card / brochure. Talk to us at the booth, or come into our office for the rest of the presentation.

Or… sign up for our email list, and we’ll send you an e-mail once month. (not lots of spam)

with 1-2 paragraphs total (not overwhelming)

Then you call us when you’re ready.

I’m not saying it’ll work. Just giving you ideas.

We just did a home builder show. The builder is owner of our RE co. so we marketed both. Had a large jar filled with nails to count. Winner won a gas card. Contact info included their e-mail. Also gave out plastic hard hats which said Frantz Const. Jr. Apprentice on front and on back compliments of Dee and Tom Miller, ReMax Real Estate Centre. And colored beads for little girls, although lots of girls wanted hats. The hats were a hit!  Flyers on listings. Our brochures, etc.
Have fun!  Greet everybody! Once you get them talking, you'll get some good leads! Let me know how it goes!

Rick,

One thing that I did one time is have trinkets to raffle off. Have people fill out contact information to get in on the raffle. Each hour would have a winner. This helped me build up my contacts when I was new to town. The raffle prizes were coffee cups with $5 Starbucks gift cards. I think people every where love Starbucks. The grand prize was a flower basket. So it was relatively inexpensive. It really worked well.

Rick,

Get a fancy, large gift basket or some kind of enticing give-away.  Have people register to win the gift basket.  Gift Certificates for house cleaning is also good. 

Create a registration form, have lots of pens and small clipboards. Ask about 3 – 4 questions such as do you own a home, are you thinking of selling in the next 12 months or do you know someone…..

Put out little promotional items.  Be careful of the kids.  They like to come up, take the candy or promo items, and you get nothing out of it.  When they do that, I tell them to go get their mom or dad to enter and then they can have the item.

I wouldn’t get into balloons because your focus is on the people. Balloons take your focus away while you need to blow up more.

Have old homes magazines available for people to take with them (your business card stapled to cover, of course).

My goal isn’t to sell anything, get someone to list with me, or talk about the market. My goal is to get information. If I strike up a conversation with someone, I get them to enter, then on the back of the form I write down what we talked about so I can follow up later.

Good luck.  I love doing events.

Hi Rick,
We’re going to have a booth at our local festival next month and came up with several ideas at our latest “brainstorming” session. Here’s one you may not have heard before: www.Restaurant.com.  It’s a website where you can purchase restaurant gift certificates for less than their face value. Offers differ by restaurant, but they typically offer a $25 gift certificate for $10 (there are some restrictions, such as a minimum purchase amount of $35 or $50). 
Here’s the kicker: they run specials every couple of weeks where you can get a 40%, 50% or even 60% discount on the purchase of the gift certificates – which means you can buy a $25 gift certificate for $5 or even $4! Once you purchase the certificates, you just print them out – no need to wait for them to be mailed.
Now this is where it gets a bit confusing … they don’t advertise these specials on their website. You have to find the discount codes somewhere else. I go to www.dealtaker.com and search for “Restaurant.com” to find the latest deals. Our office just purchased ten $25 restaurant gift certificates for $50 using the current discount code. We’re going to put them on a wheel that people can spin – most of the wheel prizes are bottles of water (cheap, but appreciated on a hot day). We’ll put two or three of the gift certificates on the wheel and replenish them as needed. 
Would this work for you? We had some other ideas as well, but I can’t find my notes at the moment. Please let me know if you want more information.

Glenda, Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all that restaurant discount certificate info... very handy for all kinds of events...

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE your logo...? Every time I see it, I stop in my tracks..... I've meant to comment before, and perhaps I did, can't remember --it....
am also curious if you designed it yourself or had it done? it is just beautiful !

Thanks, Lindy!  Yes, I designed it myself when I decided to stop using a photo in my marketing ... I wanted to use something that wouldn't gain weight or get wrinkled :-)

    You may also want to check ebay for the same type of certificate. My husband and I have often used this for our vacations. You can get a $50 g/c for $5. It is great to hear that other areas use this fair booth idea. I have been thinking of trying it locally, now I have some great ideas to take back to the office. Thanks again-
