  1. Thanks. First time I hear of this marketing and I sure, as a real estate agent, would like to apply. Now I am very curious about the system YOU ARE preparing 😉

    Great idea out of the box. Worth trying. Thanks

    Violation of the privacy law. You cannot include the business owner's name on this email.

  4. Tim Enbody says:

    You can't even if they give you permission?

  5. Can you elaborate? I don't see how this would violate privacy laws. What am i missing?

    I haven't a clue as to what you're talking about Sal. If a small business owner tells me "yes, please let your past clients know that I have a discount going at my shop right now" and I let them know, there is no law broken. Don't over think it man, you're just letting people know where they can find a deal on…. whatever. In just 3 months I had 62 "B2B Partners" who all thought I was awesome, not to mention my past clients loved the deals. Super easy, super fun, great strategy.

    Only if the businesses are an affiliated business partner will they fall under the safe act guidelines.

    Couldn’t this be considered trading something of value for a referral or referrals from the business owner?

      No. You aren’t giving them anything. They are offering the discount on their own product or service. You are just offering to market that product or service to your own database. They benefit because they get more touches and you paid for the marketing. All they hear to do is offer a discount, which they know many people won’t even use. You benefit because you are touching your database with something worthwhile and of perceived value. You also benefit because now you can legitimately ask them for a referral and it isn’t a cold call off the street. You’ve already established a relationship with them. In the end, that’s what you want – the referrals. The discount mailer is just the means to that end.
