I’ve recently been thinking of marketing to utility workers(water, gas, electric), sanitary workers(trash pick up), and mail delivery people trying to find vacant houses. I thought about making something about business card size with a message on it. Here’s what I came up with so far:
Want To Make A Quick $500?
Know of any vacant homes
From working on the job?
Let us know about it and we’ll pay you $500 if we buy the house!
You have nothing to lose
Except a few minutes of your time
Give us a call and if we buy it
We’ll pay you a $500 finder’s fee
For your referral
What do all of you think? Do you think it would be effective? Also, I was trying to think of the best way of getting the cards to the workers. Have any ideas?
Well one place to find lots of those types of folks is at your local coffee shops. Go down there at 5am and sit there til about 9am handing out cards. A lot of those guys grab a coffee before work, just wait for their unmistakable trucks to pull into the parking lot and hand them cards. The coffee shop owner won’t like it but you can probably hand him cards and tell him you’ll give him $$$ for referrals to and he’ll probably let you stay there.
