    Default marketing tool for Couples

    In our area this yaer there is a new Xmas display sold in stores for about $19. Its a sign, looks something like a yard sale sign, but very nice. Says Merry Christmas, and then below it number of days till Christmas. Its battery operated and has a bright red LED display, basicly a count back timer.

    Couples could do the same thing, put the couples logo and name on it, maybe a phone number, and it could read how many days till we go back home.

    I would buy one.

    I would not advise putting a lighted, blinking sign on your lawn that says when you're planning to leave for vacation. It might make for a rather unpleasant homecoming.

    Ya, I agree. This was oe of those posts that at first I thought was a great idea, and after 5 minutes of clicking post, I had the same thought. Would have been nice if I could " un post"

    Ditto not putting one in the yard, but maybe a small Couples countdown clock for the desk or coffee table. That would be kind of cool. I know they make desk countdown clocks. Couples would just have to get a vendor that would put their logo on it.

    Someone in our neighborhood has one of those for xmas and I have to drive by it on my way to work every day and it was sending me into a panic when it got below 10 and I still had so much to do. I would cringe every time I approached their house. But still a cute idea, especially as I know they have little kids.

    I think he was suggesting a small one for your desk.

    How about this for an idea ?

    An animated Couples countdown screeensaver, perhaps it could have an Rasta guy with a broken hourglass pouring sand onto the beach. Or you could upload your own face pics to the characters, like one of those dancing elves things.

    For a small fee you could download the countdown screen saver after making your reservations, and the proceeds go to the Issa Trust. Everybody wins.
