Real Estate Advertisement Design Problem

Reading Time: 1 Minute

Every week in the newspaper, there is a magazine that includes local real estate companies and the featured homes they are selling.

We’ve all seen them.

This week a quarter-page ad stood out to me:

As you can see, the listings under each house are unreadable.

So what happened?

The advertisement submitted to this magazine was in the wrong format, too small, etc. Either way, something was off and wasn’t caught before going to print.

I see things like this happen all the time and it always brings up the conversations I have with people that want something for bottom-dollar.

This is a great example of bottom-dollar results.

Did this company have an advertisement designed and created? Yes.

Did they pay a cheap price to have the advertisement designed? I’m sure of it.

Most importantly, how effective was the advertisement? I think you can answer that question.

We all learn this lesson in the life, but it’s important to restate:

You get what you pay for.

Let me start by saying if you choose Graticle Design for your website needs, you’ve made the right choice!

Four months ago, I started a new online business. I hired a company that I had found online, to design and build my new business website. Let’s just say, it has been a complete nightmare the past few months trying to get the work done that I needed on my site. I would email them when I needed something and sometimes get no response for days. Not to mention, the amount of time it took for them to get the work done and the high cost of their services. This situation had me extremely stressed out. I must add that I am not computer savvy. Therefore, I depended on this company for all of my website needs. Finally, after months of anxiety, frustration and utter disgust, I decided to search the web for a new website design company. I searched and interviewed many. However, I felt the most comfortable with Graticle Design. When I spoke with Shawn Hooghkirk, I felt a sense of trust and ease after our very first phone interview. Shawn actually took the time to listen and understand my concerns, expectations and everything I wanted for my website. After our first interview, I hired Graticle Design. This was the best decision for my business website and for myself as well. They are fast, efficient, reasonably priced and might I add, very skilled. I am beyond impressed with their service and I couldn’t be happier! I no longer have to stress and worry. I know that I can count on this company for all of my website needs. Most importantly, they do an incredible job!

Thank you Graticle Design! Your team is amazing!
