I you are leaving those cards in your farm area doors, the message should be printed like your hand writing:
"Please call me. I have a question for you."
I have listened to voice mail responses to this message. It works!

What is the intent of your card? To get into their contact list.
If the conversation with the citizen revealed a need to which you are the solution, you need to get your # into the phone. Scan the QR code.
If the conversation was revealing a emanate real estate decision but very noncommittal/evasive you want to track them. Give them FREE access to your CIS Score home evaluation system for buyers and sellers. Give them the 'secret' access code(priviledge).
Debbie - You can actually do 2 versions - one for buyers and one for sellers. Do half and half.

It really depends on your marketplace and the area you work in. There is no right or wrong here. I like real estate on both sides of the card...A
Yes, a call to action is important.
I like to have a little quote. Something nice.
"The greatest compliment I can receive is the referral of friends and family."
Hi Debbie, " Whe you are ready to list your home for sale, lets do it over lunch, On Me"
" When you are ready to list your home for sale let's do it over lunch, On Me!"
I aim to please
Debbie, this is what I am thinking of putting on the back of my new cards:
Please give it a try and let me know what you think ~ thanks.
I think I would try something non-real estate related. I think games such as Trivial Pursuit or Apples to Apples provide fun conversation starters. Perhaps a question as to the highest price paid for a house in the neighborhood or how many blocks count as a mile in the town? Our group name is on the back of my card, but it was fun thinking of ideas.
Debbie... I don't like putting things on the back of my cards, because often I have to write something on the back. But if I were do to so, I'd say something about the fact that I work by referral and why their referrals to me are so important.
I like to leave them clear. This way the client can write any important reminder to themself while keeping our card...
I intentionally keep the back of my cards clean. I usually write notes on cards( where I met a person, how to follow up, etc. ) and I write often on my cards as well. It can be a simple 'thank you' or a reminding.
I strongly dislike plastic cards or cards where you can not add a note.
I once printed a tip schedule on the back of my card.
Its not a bad idea....especially about another passion you have besides real estate!!!
Debbie Reynolds - a QR code for some call-to-action (what's my home worth?) or something similar - if you are interested in listings, of course.
I like the suggestion of call me I have a question when left a on a door, and now I have to go read Joe's post.
I would have 2 calls to action:
Looking for a Home to Buy? Call me first, before getting financed to buy a home. I have the right direcions to your New Home!
Getting ready to Sell your Home? Call me first, to give you the right answers and suggestions that will help you get your Home SOLD!
Each and every time I give out my card, I ask that the person reads the back of my card, they always do and the results are always very positive and they understand the message.
Depending on where you are leaving them, I would put your listings!
"If you have any real estate-related questions, please contact me."
I just thought of that...
I will have to give this some thought. I seem to recall that Joe Petrowsky had something cool on the back of his. You may want to do a search for that on here to find the blog post.
