‘Facetweetogramdin’
March 19, 2014

Growing up, I would hear my parents lament about how difficult it was to connect to the youth at that time.  “All the loud music and the head banging,” my mother would comment. “What’s going on with you kids?”  We were also told to not sit too close to the TV, and had restrictions on how long we could play video games. Generation after generation, parents struggle to connect with their kids as technology advances and the means of that communication changes at a rapid pace.  Kids today are not sitting too close to TVs – but they do have tablets and smartphones inches from their faces. And rather than blasting stereos, they are wearing expensive headphones (which we love!).

As business owners and marketers, we are faced with the same issues as parents – how do we best communicate to our customers and take advantage of the ever-changing technological landscape?  Luckily for us, there are several ways to ensure you are reaching the most customers possible, and as an added benefit, many of these methods can provide you with valuable feedback and measurement.

Confessions of an Audiophile: Why Quality Sound Matters
September 13, 2013

I still remember the exact moment when audio made a difference in my life. I had always loved music, but I had never really taken the time to appreciate it on a nice stereo. After my buddies and I graduated high school and went off to college, my best friend Dan began selling stereos at the local Good Guys to help pay for his education.
