Show Your Support during Pride Month
The month of June is Gay Pride month, and what better time to show your support of your local LGBT community. Many cities, including my own have Pride Parades, and this may be a super marketing idea to try, and also show your support for the LGBT community where you live, and work.
Bulk Gay flags are pretty reasonable, and are available on Amazon, and other retailers. You can buy in quantities of 25, 50 or even more units. They are priced very reasonable, and are a great show of support, and will be well received.
The marketing idea would be to order an adequate quantity to “cover” the area you plan to attend in, then provide these to your fellow parade watchers. You want to order, more than a few since you certainly don’t want to be seen as being stingy, or slighting a parade watcher.
How do you use them to market your real estate business? I would suggest perhaps taping a business card to the stick. Another idea could be to hand the attendee a card, or even better hand out a business card magnet, and also a flag to the parade goer.
These small, and inexpensive tokens of support will be a great conversation starter first and foremost. You will be watching the parade anyway, why not do so with people who are glad that you are there participating with them. Them, and you waving their gay flags as a sign of support
Also, long after the parade is over, the card and/or magnet will find its way to the wallet, or perhaps refrigerator of the parade goer. The attendee will know that you support the local LGBT community, and may share your name with their friends, and family who may be in the market to buy, or sell a home.
You can buy a great selection of flags of various styles, and quantities on Amazon. The links below, and in the post above, are my Amazon Affiliate links, and I do earn a small fee with each purchase. However, you don’t pay any more for the item.
