Face it, trying to promote your garage sale in the same space where up to 50 other individuals, organizations or multiple-family groups are doing the same thing can be challenging. Your event’s advertising needs to position your sale to draw the most attention with a “whatever it takes” attitude if you want to stand a chance at drawing attention, making a profit and getting rid of your stuff!
Even the most novice advertisers and business-minded people know that sex appeal sells. No, we’re not encouraging anything “R” Rated here, but you should know that the way you advertise for your event could have a major impact on the success of your sale. One thing to remember: BE CREATIVE!
In January we blogged about the “Hot Sex” ad that was found tacked to a telephone pole by a couple walking through a neighborhood in Astoria, Queens – that certainly grabbed their attention – turns our it was just a creative way to draw people over to read the entire ad and hopefully get them to their garage sale around the corner.
What if you saw her on the corner with a garage sale sign? Would you stop, look and proceed to the sale?
