Real Estate Advertisement Design Problem

February 26, 2018    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.

I really can’t fully express how great my experience was working with Shawn and Graticle. I work for a non-profit and our website had fallen into disrepair–we had even lost ownership of our domain name! But Shawn went above and beyond and walked me through the process of getting our domain name back, along with the complete design of the new site. I absolutely LOVED that he developed videos that walked us through the process of managing the website–from logging in, to editing photos, to changing content–he covered all the bases we needed to take care of our new site. This was particularly appreciated because, as a non-profit, we will likely be moving through web managers over the years and having these videos to pass on to each new manager will be an incredible relief, and will (hopefully) help us avoid the trap we fell into with our last site. He is the most responsible businessman I’ve ever worked with, he was extremely prompt in his replies to emails, and I never felt like he left us hanging or confused at any step along the way. I recommend his services with full marks! You won’t regret it!
