I’m thinking of visiting a few of the post offices in my area and speaking with postal workers about referrals. Basically my plan would be to pay postal workers 1-2 dollars for each vacant address they bring to me and taking it a step further I would pay them 500-1000 dollars for every home that I can close on. I’ve never done this kind of marketing before but it seems like it might have the potential to produce good results. I’m sure postal workers see vacant homes constantly, they probably know who moves in and out of the neighborhood and they may have other information too that could lead to potential deals.
I spent an hour or so last night putting together what I call a “Referral Guideline Sheet” which basically explains my referral paying process and what type of homes I’m interested in. I plan on emailing or giving this sheet out to anyone who’s interested in working for me.
Has anyone here had success with working with mailmen? Do you think my plan is a sound one? or should I make some changes to it?
Thanks for your advice
