Yes, depending on my mood and my energy level I leave the house with my nametag upside down.
No, I do not do this because my eyesight is so bad
and I do not do this because I am blond.
I do this to have fun, talk to people and prospect. It gets attention; trust me, if you are in line at CVS or buying cold cuts at Publix or getting a coffee at seven eleven. People will notice and they will make you aware of it. All you have to say is “Thank you for noticing, I did this because I wanted o talk to you” It is fun to see their faces, it takes them a few seconds to recover, but than you have their full attention and you can start talking and discussing REAL ESTATE. It works all the time.
When I get a new Realtor in my office and I realize they have problems starting a conversation with a “stranger” I always recommend wearing the name tag upside down.
This way the “stranger” starts the conversation with you.
