Tell Us About Your WILD SUCCESS, an AR September Contest

LeopardWe have all tried promotions that ranged from flops to moderately successful BUT have you ever had one that really exceeded your expectations to the point you would say it was Wildly Successful? 

 

I'm not talking about handing out Bic Clic pens here, I'm talking about putting on or sponsoring a promotion that went "through the roof". 

 

In the spirit of Helping Hands, the spirit of Active Rain, the spirit of mentoring others I hope you will share with me and others on Active Rain what that one Wildly Successful promotion is/was. 

 

One of my competitors sponsors a day at the Zoo, paying the gate fee for ALL the general public to attend that day... it's a big success but I could not afford the thousands of dollars that would cost. Another competitor sponsors a day at the movies (only for their past customers) again another event I could not afford. Maybe you have had Wild Success with a promotion that rivals these you would like to share or maybe you have one that smaller operators like myself can afford that will still WOW the public. 

 

On September 8th I'm going to stick my neck out and partner with three other (non-Real Estate related) businesses and throw a "Party In The Park" with displays, food, music and more. I will be sharing details about this event up to and threw the event and in the end hoping to share with you that it was "Wildly Successful".  Stay tuned for the details on how we do it.

 

Tell us about YOUR WILDLY SUCCESSFUL PROMOTION and you will be rewarded with 750 bonus points. Comment here with a link to your post. Include a picture and a minimum of 300 words. This contest is open until midnight Pacific Coast Time September 30th 2016. One entry per person.

Thanks Bob, I thought about sharing some info about our successful open house routine, but then thought that a blast from the past may be more fun.

Enjoy the journey down memory lane to an event from 98.
