That Picture Just Might Get You Noticed!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Pinnacle Properties, Florence Alabama

Be careful which pictures you post on your ActiveRain Blog...you never know who's going to be looking at them!  That picture just might get you noticed!

Wilson Lake Waterfront - Fishing  Yesterday I received a call from someone with The University of North Alabama Art Department.  He explained that he had been placed in charge of creating a banner to advertise our local Muscle Shoals Heritage Foundation annual festival.

   He said he had been searching online (with not much luck) for acceptable pictures that he might use on the banner.  Then he said "I did a Google search for Images on Wilson Lake and it brought me to your ActiveRain Blog post titled Tennessee River Waterfront Homes For Sale on Wilson Lake.  He said my picture...was absolutely beautiful...and wanted to know it I would mind if he used it on the banner?

 

So, pay attention to all those tutorials posted on ActiveRain!  They may just payoff in ways you would never imagine.  I am so excited that my picture is going to be used on the banner, but I am even more excited that he found me on Google...WooHoo!

Awesome surprise. Congratulations! I don't use many of photos I've actually taken myself, but perhaps I should be. :)

Yes it was a pretty awesome surprise...I am thrilled.  And yes, maybe you should use some of your own photo's.  I look at it as double exposure for my blog.

LOL Andre, no I didn't think of that.  Maybe I should call him and re-negotiate this deal!
