BC Place roof collapses for second time

BC Place’s roof has collapsed for a second time. Back in the 1980s, the host of a CBC TV show called Switchback caused a bit of an uproar when he showed footage of the domed roof deflating. Of course, it was later revealed that Switchback was playing the inflation of the dome backwards. Nice hoax. […]

Guy’s night out

While shopping at Park Royal Village this weekend, I noticed that Lulu Lemon was advertising a “guys’ shopping night”. Snacks, sports, drinks and gift wrapping. It sounds like a great way to lure guys into a small shop full of spandex-like clothing — somewhere you wouldn’t normally find men. Clever target marketing. (c) 2006 by […]

Interested in consulting?

Every week, I receive emails from people who want to become consultants. They often ask to meet with me so that they can learn about the success I’ve had as an independent consultant. Because of my success — on both the business and family front — I don’t have time to meet with people any […]

Vancouver cafe understands marketing

The Blue Edge Organic Cafe in Coal Harbour really understands marketing. The Blue Edge has a good understanding of its target market and has created a whole product to meet the needs of that market. Situated at the foot of Nicola Street, adjacent to the Coal Harbour Community Centre, the cafe has stunning views of […]

Ads on this blog

After much debate, I’ve decided to introduce ads on this blog. The content of this blog falls outside that of my general marketing consulting site. Most of the people reading it are interested in the blog content, as opposed to marketing consulting services. So I see this as separate from the rest of the website. […]

Don’t forget your name

Today, I was in a mall. Someone had put up a new poster, outlining the many dishes available at a new restaurant. The poster included pictures of all the foods, along with prices. But there was no restaurant name or any suggestion of where one could partake of these delicacies! Make sure you include your […]

Back in action

After a hiatus that was far too long, I’m back at blogging again. I’ll be updating this site on a more regular basis, although not quite as often as I was before my injury. (c) 2006 by Andrea Coutu. Vancouver Marketing Consultant. All rights reserved.

Slow down in posting frequency

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be posting less frequently than normal for the next little while, due to an injury. I had to decide between continuing with my marketing consulting for Vancouver and blogging for the world. (c) 2006 by Andrea Coutu. Vancouver Marketing Consultant. All rights reserved.

Vancouver’s Robson|Granville Future Shop billboard

Have you seen the new digital billboards in Vancouver on the Future Shop building at Robson and Granville? The City of Vancouver changed the billboard bylaw about two years ago, allowing digital billboards in Vancouver. Vancouver’s no Times Square, but these new billboards may mark a shift in the way Vancouverites receive marketing messages. (c) […]
