Slogans are Good -- Here's Why

By
Real Estate Agent with Raleigh Cary Realty NC Broker #178638

So I spent 12 days this summer at Penland School of Crafts, working on my glassblowing skills.  It was a lot of fun and the mountain location was the perfect escape from July in the lowlands of North Carolina.

There were 14 of us students.  On the first day we all introduced ourselves and told where we were from.  People came from all over -- Illinois, Alabama, New England, Georgia, and several from North Carolina like myself.

When one of my fellow glassblowers said, "Clarksville, Tennessee,"  I perked right up.  

"I have a friend in Clarksville, Tennessee," I said.  "A real estate agent."

"What's her name?"

"Debbie ..  Debbie .."  I floundered for a second but then I remembered.  "She's the REAL Debbie Reynolds.  Her name is Debbie Reynolds."

My new glassblowing friend had not heard of The the Real Debbie Reynolds, but who knows?  Someday when she needs an agent, that slogan may pop into her head the way it popped into mine.

I need a slogan like that .. something really Goode ..

I would love to see what glass you were able to make during your class. Please please share.

How fun and so nice of you to mention Debbie Reynolds to your fellow artist in training.

Dianne- I love what you made and love that you took the time to pursue this craft!!  We were treated once to a tour of a glass blower's gallery and workspace. He was doing a huge piece of Churchill Downs including all of the people!  I hope you share more with us. And good shout out for Debbie Reynolds Thank goodness for good slogans when our minds want to play with our memory.

Good morning, Dianne Goode branding is what it's all about.... everytime you market, you're branding and your marketing should reflect it..... the brief slogans... what you want the future client to read and most importantly REMEMBER...

Good morning Dianne Goode ,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week! Love your pitcher and vase you made and so impressed you pursued  your interest. Slogans are so important in branding and Debbie Reynolds has a good one. I think the slogan she made up for you is one I'd use Dianne: "You need a really Goode Agent, you need Dianne Goode."

Diane,

Love your glass work, and one of these days we will have to try our hand at that.  Slogans are not necessarily for evenyone, you just have to work at it.  A

Diane slogans to work!  Just this morning on FB I saw 2 people looking for service people - one real estate and another a pool service. Bingo - Of course I know exactly who to suggest! One from Active Rain Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES  and another locally. 

 

And .... your glass blowing looks like fun!  I'd love to try that! So glad Kathy featured you in her Sunday Post!

I was going to try to be clever with some slogans, but I can't beat the real Debbie Reynolds who has conceived some good ones!
