Commercial success

Every once in a while there’s a commercial on TV that resonates with us and reminds us that maybe there still is a bit of imagination and creativity left in the advertising business. We still love to yell, “Start the car, start the car” when we score a bargain, thanks to IKEA.

My friend Margaret just sent me a great one from the Canadian employee-owned airline, #WestJet westjetthat deserves a special mention. It’s particularly apropos during this season of giving. Have a look by clicking on the link below:

you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

Why people still use to read news papers when in this technological world the
whole thing is available on web?

But there’s nothing like spreading the morning paper out on the table while you take your time with morning coffee/tea. I’ve tried the iPad and it just doesn’t cut it. Appreciate your comments. Hope you’ll stay tuned.

What you posted was very reasonable. However, what about this?

suppose you were to write a killer headline? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however
suppose you added a post title to maybe get a person’s attention?
I mean Commercial success | BOOMERBROADcast is a little vanilla.
You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to get people interested.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about
everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

Appreciate your comments and will take them under consideration.

Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
Any ideas? Cheers!

I’ve only been blogging since last September so I’m a bit of a novice myself. Once I endured the learning curve associated with WordPress I found it can do all I want it to.

Hope you’ll keep reading BoomerBroadcast.

First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure
in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

Wow! Feel like I’m hardly qualified to give advice – however – don’t beat yourself up because it takes 10-15 minutes to get started. Writing starts with throwing everything on your mind down on the page/computer, then editing it a gazillion times until you like how it reads. I remember years ago reading a quote by the late Canadian author, Pierre Berton who stated that writers should never wait for inspiration or nothing will happen. It’s work and you just have to sit down and do it. It’s the old perspiration versus inspiration metaphor. Liking what you’re writing about makes… Read more »

Do you think the guy who asked for the underwear was a bit ticked he hadn’t gone for the big screen tv?
