Whether to extend festive greetings of the season with co-workers or clients is a subject of debate in many industries. However, many business owners and professionals understand that engaging with clientele or a target audience on social media is a means of building a strong brand and increasing leads and website traffic. Sharing holiday greetings is an easy way to do this.
Of course, it is helpful to remember that your real estate clients come from a variety of backgrounds, and, therefore, may celebrate holidays in different ways. When incorporating seasonal greetings into your daily business practices, it's best to use general phrases and styles that share joy and friendliness with everyone, as opposed to focusing on one particular group. With a little thought and planning, you can create a festive atmosphere in your real estate business throughout the holiday season.
Create a special holiday greeting signature for your emails
A simple way to add a bit of holiday flare to your daily business dealings in real estate is to create a special signature or heading to add to your email correspondence. You might choose generic phrases, such as ''With joy and best wishes of the season,'' as a closing before your signature.
If you send out a company newsletter to subscribers, you can also create a holiday banner as letterhead for any publications you send out during a special season.
Offer holiday treats at the office
When clients visit your real estate office, it's nice to extend holiday greetings by having a station set up where they can pour themselves a cup of cider or hot cocoa and grab a cookie or other festive treat from a platter on display. There are many ways to customize a treat station and plenty of holidays throughout the year to keep it festive and fun.
Business cards especially for the holidays
As a South Carolina real estate agent, you no doubt have lots of business cards on hand to offer people you are meeting for the first time or who have asked you about your business. To share holiday greetings and joy with prospective clients, you can create special business cards designed in keeping with the season.
Return greetings as they are offered
As you meet with clients, tour homes and go to closings during the holidays, people are bound to offer you holiday greetings of some sort. It is always polite to accept such greetings joyfully and to offer a festive comment in return. If you know that a particular client celebrates a specific holiday, you may extend greetings of the same, even if you come from a different background.
Holidays are a fun part of life and can be a special feature of your real estate business as well!
