We're just too naive to spend money?

Posted on January 5, 2010 at 6:42am 0 Comments

Happy new year everyone. At the beginning of each year we all make resolutions. I would like to recommend one to business owners in all industries. If your response to not investing(spending) money on your company is either you are too slow or too busy, just say the following to salespeople. "I have no idea what I should be doing to keep business coming in the door."

Business will always fluctuate. One day you hear crickets and the next you have no time to think. Look at seasonal… Continue

According to the National Lung Association 31 States and the District of Columbia now have laws prohibiting smoking in restaurants. However, countless dollars continue are burned on a marketing tool of the past. Sure, to the recipient, matches are a great keepsake and are useful when lighting candles. We have a better idea! Use the matches you have lying around to light a fire under your 2010 marketing campaigns. Match your restaurants style with a marketing strategy which will leave an… Continue

Let's Play Repeater

Posted on December 11, 2009 at 6:55am 0 Comments

It's a game everyone is playing today. Most marketing is a repeat of someone else. What ever happened to originality? Today we all have Twitter and Facebook. Is yours really that much better? The fact is we are all becoming white noise to our target audience. Although it makes sense to keep up with the Jones', it's only a matter of time before they are ahead again. Remember to ask yourself one question. "How do I stand out from the competition?"

2010 could be the year you become the new… Continue

Out of sight... you know the rest.

Posted on December 4, 2009 at 11:20am 1 Comment

Chances are you're excuses for not marketing are the same reasons you should be. Whether you are too busy or hurting for business, advertising strategies should always be in progress. Have you ever seen McDonald's or TGI Fridays taking time off from being in the public eye?

There is an old expression I'm sure you're familiar with. "Out of sight out of mind". As soon as a patron leaves your establishment no matter how great you're food, amenities and servers are, you are out of their sight… Continue

Hi David...
I came across your page and absolutely love your Advertising Mint Boxes. I'm a brand new business and looking for creative ways to get my name out and this is PERFECT! I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing your price list with me? I need to work on my budget and projections and would love to figure this amount into my future plans!
Thank you,
Michelle

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
