As if advertising for business is not hard enough in these times so is keeping your advertising materials. I just wanted to let everyone know that it's important to always keep an eye on your car when you are out and about on appointments. This blog is to all the Realtors/Agents and anyone who owns a business that owns car magnets for advertising.
Most recently I purchased some car magnets for my VW Convertible. These car magnets were great!! They had my name, company logo and contact information. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding. (http://make-realestatesigns.com/) Oh, the best part of all was the cost. These car magnets were by far one of the most inexpensive items I have acquired for my business.
Needless to say, all that came to a screaching halt a couple of weeks ago. I was having second thoughts about writing this blog but thought I should let everyone in the "ActiveRain Community" know since I may not be the only person this has happened to. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to share my problem with everyone.
I was in the office in the morning and got into my car to attend some appointments. When I got into my car I noticed my new car signs and remember gazing at how good they looked. As I was looking at my car someone stopped me when they saw the signs and asked me for my card. We exchanged numbers and I drove off. I then went on to a couple of appointements and then it happened; I arrived at home. As I was locking the car my keys fell to the ground and when I looked up, "my cars sign were gone". I couldn't believe it. I was so sad, I truly could not believe that someone could have taken them. Until today I still can't believe it. I've decided I am not going to replace the signs for a while in case there is someone out there that is using them.
I am very disappointed in losing the signs. I was actually attracting more clients with the signs. I keep asking myself, "What if you're not the only one?", "What if the person who stole them was using them for something illegal?" "What if the person is trying to impersonate a Realtor/Agent?" Then I thought, it was probably mean to be. This all happened for a reason that is beyond me and that I will see what the reason is later. Perhaps I am supposed to alert everyone to this type of dilema or perhaps I am going to find the signs somewhere. Who knows. What if the signs are found and mailed to me? Anything can happen right? Let's be optimistic about this and everything will work out for the better. Keep your fingers crossed for me and make sure you keep an eye out on your car wherever you are going. I know that I will be extra careful now!!
