Using a bluehammer™ digital welcome kit to gain repeat business and referrals
Do your clients remember your name? Odds are they don't
Your past clients are key for generating repeat business and referrals. There is a 70 percent chance that your clients no longer remember your name. After the sale you sent them flowers or a gift basket containing your card and other promo items mixed in. While a nice gesture, they don't do much in the way of helping you stay in the forefront of their minds all year. You can then turn to postcards and magnets but that is expensive and time consuming and provides little in the way of a solid return. So what can you do?
Provide your clients a bluehammer digital welcome kit
What's a bluehammer digital welcome kit? It’s your clients home on the web, bluehammer provides tools such as estimating repair costs for home improvement projects, securely storing home contents in the cloud in case of a covered loss or just for reference, along with the ability to calculate the homes structural replacement cost as a discussion point with your homeowners insurance company to make sure your most valuable asset is covered in the event of a total loss. As a bluehammer subscriber, you have access to create properties and use the property tools (Home improvement calculator, Home inventory, etc..) to help provide information and value to your clients.
At the end of the sale (or at any time for that matter), you have the option to transfer that property (including everything created using the tools) to your client for them to use on their new home. It becomes their home on the web, where they can use the bluehammer tools to learn more about their home.
This adds up to keeping you in front of your clients, automatically, across multiple touch points, year round.
The best part is every time they use bluehammer, your contact information, photo and logo are prominently displayed. The system also sends out emails containing lifestyle and home improvement articles they would want to read. These emails will contain your contact information, photo and logo. This adds up to keeping you in front of your clients, automatically, across multiple touch points, year round.
