My new lap top sticker...I already got a lead from it

Finally...I got the new sticker for my lap top...with my new The Flooring Girl logo.  I hope you like it.  I've had it now for close to 2 weeks.

 

lap top stickerAs many of you know, I spend a lot of time in Starbucks in between appointments.  It's a convenient place to get my estimates done while enjoying some nice coffee and relaxation time.

 

Today, I was at the Starbucks in Larchmont, a town where I tend to have a lot of success.  As I got up to leave, I must have knocked something over and the guy next to me said, "Hey flooring girl...I think you dropped something."  I was of course embarrassed and made some small talk.  He then asked if I just did carpet, or if I did hardwood too...and of course we do all types of flooring...and as it turns out, his girl friend is going to need some sanding and refinishing.  Sweet!

Of course, I think it is a great idea.... I have one on my laptop that says Realtor. And I have a few "how's the market questions?"

Shannon - Thx.  Glad you like it.

Richard - Exactly.

Alan - THx.  Actually, I think he got it...I think he fumbled his words and was trying to say, "do you just do hardwood or do you refinish, too" but whatever.

Tammie - Oh, you are so sweet.

Jordon - Well now you have a new idea.

Bud & Beth - Thx and I hope it does.

Shannon - Thx. Excellent.  Yes, you should.

Kathy - That is cool. Yes, I'm in Starbucks a lot and it's not the first lead I've gotten this way, and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Jennifer - Thx and I'm glad you like it.

Karen - that is cool, too.

Rob - Thank you so much.

Kathy - Thank you.  Yes, mine is with me all the time.  And, I also just used it at a real estate mtg.

Francine - Thx.  I'm so glad you feel that way.

Sandy - Oh that is great too...love it.

Debbie, the laptop sticker is awesome. I always thought the car wraps are kinda cheesy, but the laptop thing is a great idea.

That has to be a first!  I'm often amazed at the origin of leads.  My very first lead 3 decades ago, came from my gold Century 21 jacket, while standing in the super market check out line!

That's a great idea! I'll have to consider something like that. I've ordered these skins for my daughters MAC. Why not have a custom one made for my laptop?

Great idea Debbie, time to stop advertising Dell at the coffee shops and advertise WMS, did you make your own sticker or have it printed?

Debbie~ Are they actual stickers, or can they be taken off when you want to remove it easily?

What a great idea, I have never seen it, never thought of it, and I just called up a place that is going to make me up a dozen for an idea that popped into my mind. Thanks for the idea.
