While I do love creating, printing and sending my own greeting cards, I don’t always have the luxury of time to do so. I often use the Talking Cat ecards from BlueMountain.com to pack an unforgettable punch.
One of the trainings I offer to public speakers is called “How to Be Unforgettable.” In that talk I share the three ingredients for being unforgettable and how one might go about incorporating these ingredients into a presentation (or life) to enhance the likely hood that you and your message are remembered.
Here are the three ingredients that singularly or combined, are characteristic of an unforgettable experience.
- It is uncharacteristic for the person or place
- It is unexpected
- It is unusual
In this day and age of electronics, sending anything via snail mail raises the bar on your “unforgettableness.” But, so does sending an unforgettable ecard. That is what BlueMountain.com can do for you. What is unique about BlueMountain is that YOU get to tell your cat (or whatever other animal you choose from in the large selection of talking ecards) to say in 600 characters or less. And if that isn’t cool enough – you can pick the VOICE too.
Below is a screen shot of one of my favorite talking cats. As you can see, the interface is quite simple. You can save and test your talking cat in many voices before deciding which one to send.
You can play all you want with these talking ecards for free, but you cannot send one without signing up. BlueMountain.com offers a 3 day free trial – after which you are charged $3.99 a month OR something like $29.00 a year. It isn’t quite as inexpensive as other ecard sites, but the other popular sites don’t offer THIS level of customization.
Now, you gotta admit – a talking cat ecard saying something in YOUR words fits the criteria of unforgettable. Why not be just that and send a talking cat ecard in YOUR words!
