85 words give or take is about the length of a 30 second radio commercial. I have made a living selling radio ads and this blog is my take on topics such as advertising, marketing but most of the time like Seinfeld, 85 words, give or take, about nothing.

Random Thoughts For The Week
Want to know if the company you are considering to deal with
has lousy customer service?
Call them and
see how hard it is to speak to a live person.
By the way, Manitoba Telephone System, your customer service sucks.
I hate websites who have chat functions and pop up asking me
if they can help me.
I can click on “contact
us” if I want your help.
I also hate pop up ads that test every bit of your sanity
trying to close the ad.
Make it that
hard and out of spite I won’t shop at your place.And stop using pop ups.
Please don’t tell me that “facebook” is where everyone is
and you have to be there.
Twitter is not an advertising strategy, it’s a tool.
Why are you sending me to your Facebook page and not your website!
On Facebook likes, can you pay your bills with them?
Last point about likes, you liked Petro Canada's page. Now realistically, how many times have you been back?
Read this one in a blog and I paraphrase, “social media and the digital has
allowed millions of us to express ourselves through blogs and blog talk radio. It has fragmented traditional media”. Right (Dr. Evil voice). Yes the newspaper model is broken and there are some challenges but radio still reaches 94% of the population and even with all the TV channels, more people are watching TV than ever before. Fragment that.
