Get The Most Into Your Message

                                                                        A True Southern Gal

A woman from the most southern part of South Carolina goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written.  The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is a dollar per word.  She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, just let it read,"Billy Bob died."  Amused with the woman's thrift, the editor says, :Sorry Ma'am there is a seven word minimum on all obituaries."  A little flustered, she thinks things over and replies, "In that case, let it read, Billy Bob died - Red Truck for sale."

Now that's making the most out of an advertising dollar!

How about you?  Do you have a well thought out ad plan and a way to get the most for your money?

You are so right Carol. Reminds me of years ago when I was very active in Real Estate I overheard one of the other agents on the phone with a prospect and they decided they wanted the house but the agent insisted on giving them all of the little inconsequential details and before he finished talking the prospect changed their mind. The object is to say a lot in a few words! Then Shut Up! When the buyer buys, You stop selling! LOL
