Share Article

Happy Grasshopper gives anyone the ability to turn the people they meet into on-going referral sources. Launched in October 2010, the service has quickly spread throughout the US and Canada. Hundreds of agents and brokers are finding it to be an essential part of their marketing mix.

The service is free for the first 50 contacts. Paid accounts start at $19 per month with no contracts and a money-back guarantee.

My results so far would pay for 75 years of service. Happy Grasshopper is a no-brainer. Todd Clark, Realtor

Todd Clark, of Knipe Realty in Beaverton, Oregon, is a successful real estate agent. He has worked hard to establish himself as a market leader and uses a variety of methods to maintain visibility in his area. Back in January of 2007 he joined the ActiveRain community and has become their most active blogger. This January, after seeing a new referral marketing service featured there, he decided to give it a try.

The service, called Happy Grasshopper, is simple to understand. They write fun, friendly email messages that their users simply approve or edit before being delivered to their contact lists. Unlike other email marketing or newsletter services, these messages carry no provider branding and appear exactly like they were written and sent by the user.

Clark decided to test the service, thinking that he would write about it on his blog, which is excerpted here:

"I saw this new website, telling me they could get me more leads and said, what the heck, I'll give it a try. So, I put in only 16 client emails, out of 50 free that I was being offered, and something amazing happened.

"Just a few minutes after the first message went out, I got an email back from a past client, then another and yet another. Not only did people get back in touch with me after a year of not hearing from me in any way, shape or form - one even gave me a lead. Not just a buyer lead, but a buyer that needed to sell first. These guys are amazing!"

Celeste Nelson, co-founder and Vice President of Happy Grasshopper says their service works because of its simplicity. "Our messages are fun, friendly and short" she says. "They are the email equivalent of bumping into someone you haven't seen in awhile, brightening their day with a quick story - and then departing - leaving them with a smile as they think of you".

In addition to writing content, Happy Grasshopper also manages the delivery frequency and performance reporting of each message. Customers simply add contacts to their account and respond to incoming leads.

The first 50 contacts are free but customers can add as many as 5,000 with paid accounts starting at $19 per month. "We really wanted to remove every obstacle so that new customers would feel comfortable giving us a try" says Dan Stewart, co-founder and President. "That's why all paid accounts get 30-days free and are backed by our money back guarantee. Happy Grasshopper exists to generate referrals."

He stressed the importance of providing value for his customers and Todd Clark agrees, "My results so far would pay for 75 years of Happy Grasshopper, it's a no-brainer".

Other Realtors® are finding success with the service too. Drew Smith, an agent with Prudential - Bob Yost Home Sale Services in York, Pennsylvania says "So far I'm very, very happy with my results. First emailing out and I've already had several clients contact me and one with a referral! If that referral works, this service paid for itself in the first month. I'm already addicted to Happy GrasshopperTM!"

Nancy Fraser, of Exit Premier Realty in Massapequa, New York says "This is a great way to keep the lines of communication open between you, your past clients and others you may do business with. I keep getting great responses to their messages."

Chris Tapken, real estate trainer and principle at Wow! Experience in Austin, Texas was consulted in the development of the system and he now enthusiastically recommends it to his students, "This is the tool every realtor needs" says Tapken. "That's why I recommend it, Happy Grasshopper helps you deliver a Wow! Experience."
