FREE & Easy Virtual Marketing Toys: "Easystreet"....

Industry Observer

Want to spice up your blog post, website or open house flyer? Here are a few toys for your toolbox on the wigflip blog.


Street signs are relevant in the real world and the real estate industry so it could be fun to include some in your online/print ad pieces. They help direct clients to your office, potential buyers to your open house, and house hunters to your listing, so why not use them in your virtual world?


They could help direct traffic to a single property site, new listing, Brokerage, Blog, email or other link online. No registration required for Easystreet or other generators on the wigflip blog - they're simple to use with quick results, FREE AND free of 'Funky' logos.


From Easystreet on wigflip:

  1. Select a size
  2. Enter desired text
  3. Click to generate your sign
  4. Save to your computer, flickr or imageshack account.

Use them to add color and interest to your post. How about changing the color or inserting a sign-post using an image editor? Other toys on the wigflip blog include tinytags and superstickies generators - hope you enjoy the toys from Zach Beane powered by common lisp.

*Included links to a few of my ActiveRain favorites in some of the samples below for demonstration.







2 examples below include sign-posts created using an image editor
