Challenge to Keep Up With The Challenge

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

After running into 4 posts about the Kodak Challenge (signs or flyers), it was obvious that the challenge's date is today.

 Checked the rules, and yes, there is no mistake.

We do not use signs that much, as we are predominantly buyer's brokers. For the same reason we do not really use any flyers.

My biggest marketing piece, which is coming from the press, is my business FunCoast Realty Logocard. Well, everybody uses business cards, what is the difference? I would say because of our office location. The office is on the first floor of an oceanfront resort.

My card is on the Front Desk and we go through quite a number of those. About 70 to 150 people a week are taking my card. Sometimes people would use them to make a quick note, and this is OK. Sometimes I get the calls and they tell me that they have my card, and they now have some questions...

I like my card and I like these feet on the card. Everybody notices them, it brings smiles to people's faces. When people like something, it works. And it is a great starter of conversations, as when thhey ask whose feet they see, I tell them that these are their feet, and all they need is to imagine themselves on the  Beach...

"I am writing this post as an entry to the ActiveRain/Kodak Sign/Flyer Challenge and have a chance to win the Kodak ESP 6150 All-In-One Printer and ink!"

I really do not care about the printer, not a bit, but I still put it here, as this is the rule. I guess this makes me a law abiding guy (LOL)

We all waited to the last minute on the East Coast, to see if we could hear the West Coast cry after we crash the AR servers.

Jon, I thought the server was crashed when I tried to enter mine - when I finally finagled my way back to the page, I had posted it twice! So gladl the Delete button is there.

I'm also mainly a buyer's agent so the sign contest did not get me too excited.  Now I do have a very cool business card.  I guess I should have thought of your twist.

Jon, you have a beautifully designed business card...and I don't doubt it because of your amazingly talented daughter and son-in-law design team! :)

From a fellow procrastinator,

Too funny, Papa Jon!  I saw all of these entries and hadn't heard about the challenge either!  I have to say that your business cards are among my favorites--they DO put a smile on people's faces.  I want the name of whomever created them for you--they're genius!!  ;-)

Jon, you have a very cool card. The feet do make me smile. I can see the connection how a card is much like a real estate sign.

Missed this challenge.  Love your card and I guess pretty soon you will have new ones when you get a new Company name. 

BTW - What's with all the Kodak challenges lately?  Are they part owners of AR now????
