Making cards, and making memories. Every Real Estate Agent who is a student of Buffini or Rohn knows the power of sending a card.
I'm going to be forgotten one of these years, but the memories that I make in the minds of my children and grandchildren will carry on. I'm not leaving that to chance.
The Importance of REAL Photos
Photos help the "memory-of-Grandpa-Oso," or "memory-of-my-friend-Michael," or "my-loan-officer-who-never-forgets-my-birthday" process.
The Importance of REAL Greeting Cards
Every photo tells a story, but stories get lost over time, even if photos remain. The combination of a story (by way of a greeting card) and the photo that illustrates the story is unbelievably powerful.
The card must be something real ~ something that a child can hold in her hand.
A real greeting card.
The writer's handwriting and signature.
Photos that connect.
Memories created with email, ecards and computer photo files are like the memories that we hold in our minds.
They last just a moment, make us smile, and then... they're gone.
Send Out Cards has just introduced Picture Plus II, and you see some of the results here in the screenshots of cards I've made in the last day or two.
The card fronts shown above and to the right use a template (one of many) that allows me to drag and drop photos of any aspect ratio, and then move the photo within the mask to show just what I want.
Larry the barber was my barber for fifteen years in Manahawkin, NJ. Doesn't he look like Kenny Rogers, the Country Western singer?!
The inside of the card (below) is created by dragging a photo onto the card, then clicking the SPAN command in Picture Plus II. The photo spans the entire card, and I dragged and dropped elements onto the card to create the text box and signature. Yep, that's my signature.
My Mission with my Send Out Cards Business
The country seems to be going to hell in a handbasket right now. Jobs are scarce and becoming more so. Families are being uprooted as homes are being foreclosed. Friends are moving away, sometimes across town, but more often out of state. Relationships that had blossomed are in danger of withering away through unintended neglect.
My mission with Send Out Cards is to give you the means of celebrating and reinforcing your relationships. You may have noticed that my photographs are no longer being copyrighted. They are yours to use as you wish.
Many of my photographs have become greeting cards in my Send Out Cards business. I share them unreservedly with Card Senders in my downline. The process is simple. I click SHARE, enter your ID #, and they show up in your Picture Plus II card catalog.
