A picture is worth a thousand words and with every social website having a way to share those pics, your business’ story could be the size of a Tolkien novel. So, it only makes sense, to take advantage of the current digital, sharing culture by giving customers’ something to snap a pic of to spread your establishment’s fame.
I’ve assembled a short list of ideas for you to use as a starting point to find a unique appeal for your business or organization to use. It’s about giving people a reason to be the center of attention and to use their “selfie” as a way to promote you.

Roadside attractions in America: everything from grave markers to alien jerky can be used to draw attention to your business/organization.
