Why not use this as an opportunity to revive your typical holiday card to arrive days before Thanksgiving with a handwritten “thank you.” This is an easy and inexpensive way to connect with past clientele and express your gratitude for their business, referrals and reviews.

Of course, you can always send an additional classic holiday card with warm wishes for the holiday season and new year ahead. Real estate agents use this traditional marketing method… because it works.

2. Give Back

Do you participate in a charity organization or volunteer at any events during the holiday season? Don’t hesitate to share your experience with your fans. It’s important to have and share community stewardship, it builds a good corporate reputation and shows that you truly care about where you live and work.

Spread the message and encourage your employees, clients, prospects, referrals to join in, too. It can be as simple as setting out a donation box for children’s gifts or elaborate as a hosting a fundraising event. Use social media posts to build up momentum and excitement before your event and when it’s over, remember to share your results with gratitude for everyone’s participation.

3. Be Social

Social gatherings are no stranger to the holiday season. Your calendar will probably be booked solid with parties and dinners. But, be sure you’re maximizing your online presence as well. The holidays can be the perfect opportunity to build engagement and make new connections through social media sites like Facebook.

No doubt your target audience will still be attached to their phones during this time of year, don’t miss out… connect with them there.
