We all need a gimmick.
What is a gimmick? Is it some nefarious thing one whips up in the deepest darkest part of one’s mind?
According to The Free Dictionary, a gimmick is an innovative or unusual mechanical contrivance; a gadget. I would add an additional phrase “that gets someone’s attention.”
In my business, real estate in Brevard County Florida, I am grateful when my phone rings (or that email comes) and someone wants to discuss my services.
They call for various reasons, possibly as a result of one of my gimmicks.
No, my gimmicks are not as eye catching as the sign guy at the corner of Murrell Road and Barnes Blvd spinning a sign for Little Caesar’s Pizza.
Nor as entertaining as the multiple used car dealers who sing, dance and turn somersaults on the television in the wee hours of the morning!
