Top Row

- Postcard designed specifically for homeowners who aren’t home, when Mike knocks on doors to generate real estate business.   The postcard contains 4 calls to action (2 – buyers;  2 – sellers), a customer testimonial in the specific area where Mike door knocks, Mike’s background and contact information, etc. 

2nd Row

- Pancho Segura - Mike was the #1 salesperson in the United States for his tennis racket – - at age 21.   This is an invitation for Mike to join Pancho in La Costa.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       – Patch approval form – Mike’s form (with the Dalmatian – 2nd from right) suggests the purchase of two additional products with their patch (hats & t-shirts), and lists their Account Executive – building short-term recognition and long-term relationships.  The other form (2nd from left) was used prior to Mike’s hiring.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      – QR Code – designed for consumers to scan with their Smartphones to view a linked website.  The QR code above, drives people to this site.   He also has a code for his real estate website.

Bottom Row

- Nametag – this informs people of Mike’s occupation 24/7 – at a cost of $15 - generating over 15 real estate transactions to date.   The combination of the red (along with yellow, the two most visible colors) ”SOLD” hanging off the edge of the badge, along with the well known real estate logo, attracts attention and real estate inquiries.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        – Mike negotiated free publicity for his company on The Forum scoreboard, when the LA Lakers played there.

Video Exposure

Advertising system invented by Mike.  
- He contracted Blockbuster and other local video stores ($100-200 per month) to distribute his ads, one per person, in their video rental cases.  The client base (people renting videos) were spending disposable income. 
- Ads were brought in by consumers to receive the offer that each ad contained  – - easy for clients to track their success.  
- Clients received repetitive exposure, all day, every day, and allowed them to pull clients from different geographic areas. 
- Mike sold all the ads, designed and produced them, and trained video store employees re: their distribution. 
- He also sold this system as a Business Opportunity (similar to a Franchise).   He wrote the disclosures, trained all system purchasers, and provided ongoing support.  All system purchasers made money.
Above are a few sample ads from large and local advertisers, a publicity article about the business, the brochure used at the Franchise shows, as well as the Trade Show promoters’ ad (The Entrepreneur Expo), which Mike negotiated to include his company name.
