We recently moved to a new city which of course entailed moving all of our stuff. My company paid a moving company to move us so we didn’t have to go looking for a mover. The surprising thing was that a mover came looking for us!
Christian Brothers Moving and Storage sent me the following package a couple of months before we moved:
- Handwritten envelope
- Letter about the company’s services and “free boxes” in bold letters.
- A business card
- A cute greeting card that hits the right pain point for moving – stress
Had I not already been committed to another company and wasn’t planning on doing the move myself, I would have at the least given them a call for a quote. Why? Because they took the initiative to reach out with an attractive presentation.
I assume that Christian Brothers keeps tabs on the MLS to see what homes are going on the market and then sends moving letters like the one we received to all of these homes. It’s possible that they have some sort of criteria for choosing who to send the letters to but either way they have figured out how to reach their target audience at a very minimal cost.
How do you take advantage of seasons or events to find new customers for your store?
