Wordless Wednesday…Letting Animals Do the Talking For You


The other day I found some old posts from July 2009 for a Nature & Marketing Contest. The idea was to use a photo of yours using nature to market your business. This was one of the photos.

It was one I had fun with because I had so many photos from my walks at Green Cay Wetlands in Florida. 


What do you think???

Good morning, Kathy... I like it. I was not a member of Active Rain in 2009 so did not participate in that challenge.

I often smile at the Geico ads with the Gecko.  Perhaps, those kind of ads are accentuated when the name of the animal has some semblance to the brand name.  Like "Anna Banana" for example.  Yes, I know - A banana is not an animal!😊

Kathy, that is really cute, and useful for your area with local birds.

Hello Kathy, animals are fun to take pictures of and wonder what they are thinking.  Make it a great day!

Kathy the word "frightened" is a very appropriate word to use in combination with that picture.  ☺️

Nina Hollander, Broker I don't remember much about it or if there were very many participants.

Thank you Roy Kelley it's a good week and a very hot one as well.

HI Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 I enjoy seeing creative ads these days, especially the ones with a sense of humor. 

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS me too. The other night I wanted so badly to capture the eclipse but our camera's lens wasn't strong enough. (or it could have been the photographer)

Kathy Streib  our animals do all the talking, interestingly not every buyer and seller appreciates it and as far as I am concerned that is OK my target market is like minded individuals... pet friendly, loving good food and good company just to name a few:)Endre

This reminds me of the contest Russell Ray ran in March of 2010 where we had to partner up with a member who was in a different real estate field than us and come up with marketing ideas.

I teamed up with Leslie Helm and our entries were...
