I just wanted to relay my recent experience with the NACHI mousepad.
I just started requesting them for Realtors about 6 weeks ago. I understand a new shipment just arrived a couple of weeks ago and were shipped. I requested them for each agent who had called me for an inspection, and a couple of brokers. At that point, I think the total requested was about 25 to 30.
In the last week, I have gotten 9 calls from Realtors to thank me for having the mouse pad sent to them. Two of the calls resulted in bookings!!! They LOVE them!!!!
My wife was in an office marketing on Thursday, and an agent walked up to her and asked how she can get a mouse pad. My wife just said, call us for your next inspection. The agent replied "you'll get my next one".
The pad is just a piece of the marketing, but it is a unique gift. One Realtor told me she had never seen one like it.
Thank you Nick and NACHI for providing such an excellent ice breaker, marketing piece, useful item, and appreciated gift by the people so important to the home inspectors overall success.
