5. Put on your red shoes, ring the doorbell and dance to Bowie. Hold up a poster that says, "Let's dance to the beat of selling your home." THAT will definitely leave a lasting impression Annette!

Door-knocking at homes with ring cameras is a variation of video marketing, it seems. Michael Jacobs is starting to write the course.

There would be no reason for me to be that said door unless the occupants are expecting me.  That's just the way I roll.  No signs. No speaking to the bell.

This is a fun question Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 . Here in Minot the only two instances of my running into a video doorbell are the ones a builder/developer installed in the homes I was selling for him and my own video doorbell which I posted about yesterday in my blog and here in Q&A.

I had never thought about how one could market through one.

5. I ain't at their door unless invited.

6. If you're gonna do that, though . . . can you be 'organically charming' enough to be memorable?

Some folks succeed at it. Some just cannot think on their feet. THIS IS CRITICAL. Nothing rehearsed or canned works.

"Can we talk to you about Jesus?"

I'd love to talk to you about MY spiritual practice, another time perhaps.

"Oh really? What church?"

I AM a church. Divinely guided folks recognize that immediately . . .

"Oh, okay, have a great day!" LOLZ

Really??? Well, I guess if you stalked the owner via FB, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram etc., you could find out their birthday and do a little rehearsed song and dance "Now is the time to sell" spiel but really? There is a limit...

I LOVE the Ring door bell cameras at my home and i do like leaving messages for others who have them. Yes it is a little ad for myself some days and i can sure make myself stand out rather than just making faces at it.

I was never a door knocker but if I was offered a million dollars to do so, I'd try to make it worthwhile.  I'd go with the idea that many people are NOT home during the day and be prepared to give a brief "elevator speech" and leave something of interest, like the most recent real estate Snapshot statistics (to leave) and an offer to do a FREE price analysis on their home.

Hmm...really great question, Annette! It's not something I would TRY to do but, I think if you are doing a drop-by, it's nice to have a back-up plan when residents have a Ring door bell. 

I would probably have a business card handy that I had written "Call me!" with a Sharpie and hold it up to the camera?! I don't know - I've knocked on doors EARLY in my career but, don't any more. So, not sure what I would REALLY do!

I was doorknocking a neighborhood years ago and ran into the Ring and other video doorbells.  On the spot I started identifying who I was, why I was there and giving a little spiel.  The "Ring Neighborhood" is full of people posting "OMG!  Who is this?  Should I have called the cops?" type of posts because of agents and religious people doorknocking, or people dropping off flyers.
