When we received an email this week from vFlyer subscriber Christa Ross, we couldn't help but admire her wonderful custom theme. As an agent with RE/MAX Select Realty in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Christa has done a fantastic job of branding herself as "Your Certified Green Agent" (as you can see on her very nice website) and has taken that branding and applied it to her vFlyer content in a very elegant way. Her branding is unique, instantly appealing, and truly contemporary. I've written before about the importance of branding yourself so that potential customers remember you and recognize your ads when they see them, but I can't overstate how critical this is, especially when so many others are advertising their products and services online. If you have a website already with your branding on it (as Christa does), it's an easy jump from there to creating a custom branded theme in the vFlyer Theme Editor. Creating consistency in all your online marketing content reinforces your brand and makes it more likely that you will increase your number of leads and, consequently, clients.
Any vFlyer business subscriber can create a branded custom theme and use it in his or her Flyers and Account Profile. For a useful introduction to creating and using custom themes, take a look at this series of short video tutorials on our website. If you have an annual subscription, we can have one of our designers create a custom theme for you at no charge. If you have a monthly subscription, we can create a custom theme for you for a discount price of $79. If you're interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Both of these offers are good through October 31, 2009.
We'll be back next Friday with another Custom Theme of the Week, so if you've created or seen a custom theme and think it should be spotlighted, let us know!
