You know your marketing stinks...when!

We all go to a lot of effort in our attempts to make sure our marketing efforts and dollars have the most impact for our target audience.  I thought this engaging entrepreneur hit the nail on the head with his creative marketing tact!  Hey you may think his marketing is just a pile of pooh but this guy knows how to grab his targets attention.

I know the photo stinks but I was on the move doing something I should not, taking a photo with my iPhone while driving.  BTW I think I will stick to my line of work.

That kind of marketing always gets attention and many times a lot of business. Some how I can imagine a Realtor being able to generate leads from advertising like this but who knows.. People are strange as we all know. I like your picture but be careful taking the picture while driving as this might end up being a grande no bueno!

Smart idea!  Maybe I can put a birdhouse on the top of my truck.  No, that would be shades of Seamus...can't do that to the poor birds who want to live there!

Now that's what I would call visually effective marketing.  No question what he does for a living and/or what his business is all about.  Definitely gets your attention and isn't that what advertising is all about :)

I think I prefer the real estate business.  However, some real estate marketing could be in the same category as dog poop.

Have a great week and be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments.

LOL! I wouldn't want to drive around town with that pile of poop on top of my car, but the marketing is very effective. Sounds like a yucky job, though!
