Finding the Humor in Search Engine Marketing

Why Must Click To Call Ad

Spend some time searching for keywords that interest you on Google or another search engine and see which ads and links catch your eye. Click on the links that immediately get your attention and see what ads placed on those websites really get your attention. You will probably find that those with a bit of edge, humor, or wit tend to grab your attention more than those that just present a keyword or some generic slogan.
It is so easy to put up marketing campaigns that are technically correct but very dry. Some can be downright boring, but marketers don’t notice or don’t seem to care as long as some results are seen from the campaign. The problem is even more results could be seen if the time was taken to put something more original and entertaining … Read More

Looking For a Good HD Camcorder For YouTube?

So you took a great video and you want everyone to know (and see) it. What better place to post it in this day and age than YouTube? Although you can post just about any video format on YouTube (it doesn’t have to be.avi), the quality of your video when posted can definitely be affected by the type of camcorder used to shoot it. In addition, you’ll generally want something that’s lightweight, can take good quality video in different lighting conditions, and makes the internet-ready video process easier – so you can just shoot, save, plug in, and upload. Here are some solid recommendations for YouTube-ready video recording:

1) Pure Digital Flip Mino HD. This was the first camcorder designed specifically for YouTube – which means the quality isn’t perfect and the videos are meant for a Web page, not an HDTV. But if you’re looking for the convenience of … Read More

Make Covid-19 recovery green, say business leaders

More than 200 top UK firms and investors are calling on the government to deliver a Covid-19 recovery plan that prioritises the environment.

They say efforts to repair the economy should support the government’s commitment to tackle the climate change crisis.

They believe ministers should use the Covid-19 lockdown as a springboard to propel a green economy.

The signatories to the letter include Lloyds Bank, Asda, Siemens and Sky.

The proposals outlined by firms such as Mitsubishi, Signify and Yorkshire Water in a letter to the prime minister include:

  • Driving investment in low carbon innovation, infrastructure and industries.
  • Focusing support on sectors that can best support the environment, increase job creation and foster the recovery – whilst also decarbonising the economy.
  • Putting strings on financial support to ensure firms getting bailout cash are well managed, and in step with climate goals.

In a speech on Thursday Boris Johnson briefly committed

Hunting Cameras and "Deer Camp"

Every year for the past 25 plus years, I have hosted what has been referred to as “deer camp” during the first week of gun season, for my sons, my nephew, and some of their friends from college. Normally, when you think of “camp” it evokes images of tents, sleeping bags, campfires, and no running water-unless there is a nearby stream. This camp is my home, complete with big screen TV and full sized pool table. The group has evolved over the years, but some of the practices remain constant. One of those is the annual ritual of pulling out scrapbooks with the pictures of deer bagged in previous years.

Pictures are labeled: “My first deer,” “Biggest buck of the year,” “Most typical rack,” “Farthest drag,” etc. As the pictures are viewed, each year’s hunt is recalled in great detail by all who were involved. Each image evokes feelings of … Read More

Traffic Light Cameras – The Evil Racket to Take Your Money

The proliferation of traffic light cameras has been justified as a safety policy, but it’s also about money. These cameras are becoming a nice little money-spinner for local governments and the companies that make and operate the cameras. Insurance companies also benefit as tickets give them a pretext to increase auto policy premiums. You’re being fleeced, and you have every right to be upset about it!

Traffic Camera Tickets – An Opportunity That’s Too Good to Resist

There are two easy ways for local governments to increase revenue from traffic cameras at intersections. The most insidious is to deliberately shorten the yellow-light time. While independent researchers have confirmed that longer yellow lights lead to much less red-light running – which is what we’re supposedly trying to reduce – several towns have done the exact opposite and reduced yellow-light times in order to trap more motorists and make more money writing … Read More
