Holiday Greeting Card Contest – Help Save Homeless Christmas Trees!

Here is my entry:

Holiday Greeting Card Contest

Back Side:

We hope you have a Wonderful Christmas!

At Home Point Real Estate we are dedicated to helping people find the perfect home for their Christmas Tree.

If you need help buying or selling a home at Christmas or anytime we hope you will think of Home Point Real Estate.

I wanted to do something funny and yet a little traditional. What could be more traditional than Christmas Trees. I really do not like giving people a hard sell with my Christmas Cards and marketing as I really want people to have a Merry Christmas – not just sell homes.

I am concerned that some might see this card as making fun of the homeless. That is not what I intend, but the appeal spoofs charitable pitches. Home Point Real Estate is obviously not a charity and so what I am really doing is spoofing Hard Core marketing pitches that play on people's guilt. At the same time it does remind people of the desire for a home and all the memories they can make in it at Christmas and other times of the year.

Gene ~ creative play on a marketing idea......I'm sure it won't be taken the wrong way.
