The Marketing Power Of Ice Cream


Why Is It Our Postcard Of The Week?

  • Strong Call To Action – Simpson Co. informs potential clients that National Ice Cream Day is on July 17th, and encourages them to enter a contest where they can win free ice cream. Who doesn’t like free ice cream?
  • Enticing Headline – Silly postcards are fun and provide comic relief in a chaotic world. Potential clients can’t help but be drawn to a headline that advertises “National Ice Cream Day.” Likewise, such advertisements are a great way to reinforce brand names in a non-aggressive manner.
  • Keep-in-Touch Strategy – Simpson Co. displays a link to their Facebook page and website, increasing referrals and growing online followers.

Why It Was Successful

This postcard was informative, colorful and non-intrusive. However, while the message revolves around ice cream on the surface, it is also a subtle way to keep-in-touch with past clients or reach out to new potential clients, reminding recipients that their local real estate agent is only a phone call away.


Simpson Co. receives multiple referrals a month. With average homes selling around $250,000, that equates to over $7,500 per month in commissions!
