Closing Gift Comparison

As the first post on our brand new Top of Mind Networks Blog, I wanted to do a quick “pros and cons” comparison of common closing gifts out there on the market; and of course show how our featured Closing Gift, “The Address Stamper” stacks up with the other gift ideas. We have surveyed hundreds of Real Estate and Mortgage professionals and the three most common closing gifts people tend to give are a gift basket, a gift card, or nothing at all.

The Gift BasketGift Basket

Pros:

  1. classy touch
  2. appreciated

Cons:

  1. expensive ($50+)
  2. very short shelf life (gift is consumed and forgotten about)

The Gift CardGift Card

Pros:

  1. easy to buy
  2. flexible (based on your clients’ preferences/likes)

Cons:

  1. can be viewed as impersonal
  2. brands the merchant, not you as the gift giver
  3. short shelf life (again), easily forgotten about

Nothing atAll:Lump of Coal

Pros:

  1. heck, you can’t beat the price tag!

Cons:

  1. fails to let your client know you appreciate their trust and business
  2. wastes an opportunity to deepen your relationship with the client

Address Stamper Closing Gift:Address Stamper Closing Gift

Pros:

  1. highly personalized, each gift is custom made for each client
  2. long shelf life, this gift will be with your client for as long as they own their home
  3. very inexpensive – as of May 2009, our price is only$10 which includes manufacturing and shipping!
  4. this gift actually brands YOU every time your client picks it up (see the top of the handle)

We call it “TheBusiness Card That Never Gets ThrownAway”!You’ll havehappier clients who will be more likely to remember you long after closing. If you’d like to receive a free sample of our work, pleaseclick here and fill out the form.Or you can always just give us a call at (866) TOP-MIND.

    Top of the Blog to you!

    Blog looks great guys! And way to kick it off with such a relevant topic. I agree there is no better closing gift then the address stamper. I get so many calls from clients thanking me for their address stamper. I had one client that inadvertently didn’t get their stamper and she would call or email me everyday until she received it. It reminded me of a my son waiting for his gifts from Santa.

    Keep up the good work boys!

    I would lve to see a second choice to this stamp. I suggest the second choice could be a stamp that has a Date line,Amount Line and a check# or confirmation # line.

    In that situation it would last beyond the life of the home.
