Reward Customers with… Deactivation?!

Update – June 8, 11:20am The Fastcase CEO called to resolve this issue! 🙂

What if you found a company that provides a product you love? In fact, you love it so much, that you come in to buy it several times every day.

But the company’s security has a policy to prevent shoplifting: any patrons who enter the store more than once per day are automatically locked out. WHAT?! You’ve just been locked out of the store because …

Support Local Businesses with Google Maps

Do you like supporting local businesses? Most people do. We should all take pride in the unique things that make our neighborhoods home. But did you know that you can use Google Maps to support them?

No more yellow pages

I keep trying to convince my wife that we can throw out the paper phone books. With Google Maps and its awesome local results, yellow pages are simply obsolete.

Why should I dig out a huge book and thumb through the pages looking for the crazy category …

Business Card Help – I Need Ideas

It’s time to make some professional business cards for myself. But I don’t want to be stodgy and boring. Can you provide any advice?

I want my cards to coordinate with my law firm website and letterhead. I plan to keep it fairly plain for now. Hopefully in a few months I can have a professional logo designed and re-image everything.

Erica Douglass has a great new card design that I just love. But I’m afraid that’s a bit too fun for a lawyer. Maybe not.

Crazy Attorney Advertising Pics and Videos

Where there’s an attorney, you’ll probably find crazy advertising. Florida has regulated it heavily, and most areas regularly deal with the same issues.

Attorneys can’t portray themselves offering assistance to aliens, and they can’t have a phone number like 1-800-PIT-BULL.

But lawyers still have some crazy ads and signs!!

Get Connected with the Fredericksburg Area Bar Association

A professional is nothing without a network. Unless you’re a professional monk. Then I guess you can meditate all day in a secluded forest.

But the rest of us need to make connections. We need to know people, help them, and have friends to call on in times of need.

Lawyers especially need a network. How do you get clients without them knowing about you? Where will you turn for quick legal tips without knowing other lawyers? And how will you stay sane without friends?

Cool Business Card Idea – Coupon on Back

Is there anything on the back of your business cards? There’s a ton of wasted real estate back there. You could use it for cartoons. Or maybe try another idea….


For your business card to be successful, potential clients must actually contact you. If they throw away your card or don’t call, it’s virtually a waste.

But who will throw away a coupon for a service or product they might need? Some people will, but many others will save it, just because it’s a coupon.

Ingenious Point-of-Sale Donation Tactic

Photo by Mindful One
Many retail stores cooperate with charities, especially during the holidays. When you’re checking out with your purchases, they ask the familiar question: “Would you like to donate $1 for…”?

I’ve never donated.

Until now.

A few days ago I was shopping with my wife. When we paid for our stuff, the cashier asked us a different question: “Would you like to round up to donate to…”? It was such a cool tactic, that I had to say yes!

I can’t even remember what the charity was – I think something to help …

Creative Business Card Idea

Sometimes I wonder if I’m in the wrong profession. Maybe I should have gone into marketing. I sure love neat marketing techniques.

Check out the cool business card idea I found through AdverBox. It’s a business card for a landscaping company. But it’s more than a standard business card.

These guys are creative! They made a business-card-sized seed packet and emblazoned it with some catchy typography. Include some seeds, and you’re done. This is a business card the recipient will remember!

Always be creative
