peer pressure

I ended up forking out the big bucks for the lucite framed thing announcing that I'm an audience winner on City Search. I tried telling them that I could have one made myself by a designer and framed for about half what they wanted to charge me - I thought they might come down in the price if I did. But then they told me that if I did that, my plaque would not match the other ones displayed all over Seattle. That's when I remembered that sweetestkiss said she had seen those City Search winner plaques displayed in other businesses that had won. If I make my own, it won't match what is displayed in other businesses. And matching means people recognize more readily that I'm an audience favorite in Seattle.

I got pressured into it. But I've spent that much on a sexy dress before that I only wore once or twice. So it's a good investment considering it will be displayed on my studio wall every single day.


It's a vanity thing I guess. Like wearing the same brand of jeans as all the girls in high school. Our friends were already our friends in high school, so it wasn't like wearing the latest and coolest brand of jeans got us any more friends. But we still purchased them anyway, it made us feel like part of something special. So while my clients are my clients whether or not I have that plaque, paying extra means I'm sporting what all the other winners in Seattle are sporting.


I think that it is fabulous that you bought that plaque. Even though it was kind of expensive, I think that it was worth it in the long run.
Ok listen i said this before but I will say it again. You obviously wanted to buy it so it's not a bad investment. Even if it doesn't add to your business AT ALL you will be happy when you see it. Money well spent!
