Love Thy Neighbor... And If He Happens To Be A Cowboy, It Will Be That Much Easier!

By

TOO MUCH JUNK ON YOUR TRUNK?

Looking for other ways to promote your business now that print advertising, especially for real estate, appears to be close to extinction, or should I say dormant? What? You don’t want your big old SUV wrapped up to look like a neon Spam can just so you can promote your business?

By popular request, I am sharing the website I ordered my domain plate from last year.  Shove your junk, and those spare ‘Sold’ signs, in the trunk and do some subtle promoting ON the trunk.

You just never know who is behind you at that stop light. I’m watching for someone from here in my rear view mirror at every stop light.

Please click below to be transported to Domain Plates!

 

And Thank You for asking!

Hey, thanks for the reminder.  I have seen this before but need to do some website work before I advertise for it.  This advertising looks more my speed because I'm not into plastering my face and info all over my car.  To the point and still small enough not to take away from the car's look.

Susie, very creative to keep promoting yourself on the back of the vehicle. I think more Realtors need placement there and not so much on the side of the vehicle. I'll keep my eyes open for a Cowboy for you.

THanks for passing this along, Susie. I already have a vanity plate (SELS HMZ) and my plate holder has my name, brokerage and phone number. But perhaps something easier to read makes sense too.

Have you ever had someone contact you from seeing your car?

Michael, I've been known to buck the trend occasionally.

Julie, you are welcome!

Anthony, THANK YOU for appreciating my writing!

Kristin, it has not hurt my paint at all. I suggest you go to the website and find out more.

Jack, I hope so. Thank you for commenting.

Richard, no harm meant. Different strokes!

Jenn, I agree... subtle on the vehicle.

Gary, thank you for your comments, and the kind assistance with my search!

Midori, awww, THANK YOU! XXOO

Hal! so true.

Jeff, I had someone contact me from a vehicle that took down the site and looked me up as they were driving down I40!

Ann, thank you. I'm very pleased with the looks and the quality.

Jim and I use print advertising very effectively. That's because we're the only ones doing it, so it gets noticed rather than getting lost in the masses like trying to play the SEO game.
