Stand Out From the Crowd

Use fun icons to make your website or blog stand out from the crowdJust as curb appeal is important when selling a client's property, the image you put forth is important when selling yourself to potential clients.  You don't want your site, blog or advertising material to look like everyone else's.  You want to stand out from the crowd to keep your name on the tips of potential clients' tongues when they want to buy or sell a property in your area.  One way to do this is by using colorful icons to capture the attention of visitors to your website or blog.

Find Icons is a fabulous website I came across recently.  It offers more than 308,000 different free icons available for download instantly.  When I've look for icons in the past for my real estate clients, I've typed in what I'm looking for on Google and had to sort through tons of different sites to find just what I wanted.  Then, I had to make sure they were free to use.  With Find Icons, you can search by theme (ie, "real estate", for example) or individual item (such as "home").  Change your social media icons at the holidays or to to fit your mood.  Whatever image you want to project, you will most likely find something that fits here.

I love that little Google trick. Use it myself. One of the AR posters turned me on to it. AR is a cool place.

Hi Jon and Josh - My post was supposed to be in Draft Mode when you read it.  There certainly wasn't much there.  So, I hope you'll have time to revisit the post again.  Sometimes my fingers don't know what my brain is thinking!  ;o)

Hi Kathy - You might be able to find some icons that go along with home staging.  I bet they'd be great!  Thanks for visiting.

Thank you so much for this information. I am in the process of builing my own website and this will help out alot. Makes a site so much nicer to have something different from the "norm"
