Using Words That Matter (Sell)

"It's the damn economy's fault!" -Most small business owners It's not the economy, it's not that your people are lazy or any other multitude of reasons that you may be falling behind. A major component as to why you're unable to sell your product and/or service is because your words STINK! Being "good" is simply not good enough! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be "the absolute best" and to use the most compelling words possible in order to sell what you offer. In this video,…See More

Biography
You can check out my brief story here: http://bit.ly/9X0UDq

I want to give back to the F&B community that gave me so much. My background (aside from five years of restaurant experience) encompasses local SEO, permission marketing and copywriting, which, when fused together, helped me to create a number of incredible start-ups.

I created my company, Triple Your Tips, and contribute to FOHBOH to accomplish five primary objectives:

1. To help restaurant employees maximize their potential and show how much they care about their guests;

2. To help create dining experiences that people feel are worth talking about;

3. To teach others how to use basic online tools to establish their personal brands;

4. To positively influence others and help them understand that their attitude and mindset define, and will continue to define, their circumstances;

5. To show that I actually care.

Shoot me a line at brooks@tripleyourtipsbook.com or check out my site at http://tripleyourtipsbook.com as I would love to meet you! Thank you for your time and choose to live well. You deserve it.

Why Facebook Ads "Work" (And Why They Don't At All)

Posted on October 13, 2010 at 7:00am 2 Comments

"Wow, I forgot how awesome Facebook makes their ads look," I thought to myself. I was in the midst of creating a Facebook fan page for my FOH training start-up and was looking at the ad preview that Facebook generates to entice the fan page owner to advertise.



Creating the ad design for the consumer automatically (based on the company's logo and description) is a slick move on Facebook's part but I was immediately reminded of the utter failure that I had experienced with this… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
