yard sign

I am constantly reminded of how important our yard signs are in my area.  We are a smaller community around Lake Anna and often I have people, some I know and some when I meet them for the first time, tell me how often they see my signs around the lake.  Yard signs are still gold in my neighborhood.

Recently I had some new signs made.  Completely new design and I picked them up but have not had a chance to drive around changing out my signs.  I'm having second thoughts about them.  I'm not as excited about them as I thought I would be.  However, here is what the new signs look like.

Now whose sign is that?

I was trying to achieve a design that would encourage a prospective buyer to contact me, therefore my web site and my cell phone number.  The QR code is for my web site also.  I always prepare "outdoor" flyers for houses and they are attached to the sign post.  I will write about those in a separate post.  I also do them for waterfront lots but generally do not for the access lots unless they have a water view.

I think it's back to the drawing board. My name can certainly be a bit smaller (I've never had a sign with my name so big before) and I would like my company logo to be larger. Using orange for my phone number is something I might consider.

I'll have to ask my friends for their advice. If anyone here would like to give me their opinion I would welcome it.

Meanwhile I will use these and am confident that I will still hear, "I see your signs everywhere." Those words are music to my ears.
