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.

Debbie,

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

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.

I have written on cards too butnot sure they keep them. I like the secret code idea too Annette Lawrence. I am not a fan of QR codes. Which code would it be? To a search for homes? What if they are a seller?

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 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.
