Last week while flying down to Orlando, Florida for the RE/MAX International Convention, I had the great pleasure of flying on a low-fare (READ: discount, no frills) airline. Namely, AirTran. I didn't really save any money since USAir, Southwest, and just about everyone else was offering the same $139.40 roundtrip from D.C. Nice!
However, I did get to experience and taste some darn good gourmet pretzels en route. More than that, I learned how to Use the Incredibly Obvious to Have Some Fun & Maybe Sell Some More Homes. This I learned from a bag of pretzels:
Due to the highly silly nature of actually giving instructions for how to eat pretzels, this is the first time that I've ever looked around an airplane and saw everyone heavily concentrating on reading every word on the pretzel bag. Few people will soon forget these pretzels, and that's exactly what AirTran intended.
That instantly gave me an idea for my business and I've now created a sign for the passenger side of my car -- that same car used to take homebuyers all around Northern Virginia on the quest to buy their next home. A moment of inspiration and voilà:
In case you have trouble reading it, here's what it says:
HOW TO ENJOY YOUR RIDE & FIND THE HOME OF YOUR DREAMS
(keep reading for complete details)
1. Think about the homes you saw online at brianblock.com as you fasten your seatbelt and relax into the plush leather seats.
2. Sit back, relax, and talk to Brian about your criteria for your home search.
3. Wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before exiting to view homes.
4. Make sure to tell Brian what you did or did not like about home.
5. Repeat until you find your dream home.
6. Tell your friends and family you fournd your dream home and that they should visit brianblock.com to start their own home search.
It's going up in my car today. Let me know what you think. I'll let you know what my clients think.
How can you use the Incredibly Obvious to Have Some Fun & Maybe Sell Some More Homes?
