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

Are we in a housing bubble”? Warren Buffett has called a housing bubble. Speaking at the 2006 Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting, Buffet said: “What we see in our residential brokerage business … is a slowdown everyplace, most dramatically in the formerly hottest markets….The day traders of the Internet moved into trading condos…We’ve had a real […]

Reader’s Digest decoder card

Do you have a Reader’s Digest decoder card? I just received an email from someone who needs one for a scavenger hunt. I received one a few months ago as part of a direct mail campaign. Unfortunately, I recycled it a few days ago. If you have one, please let me know and I’ll pass […]

Canada wordmark and trademark protection

Canada’s wordmark needs protection, according to the Treasury Board of Canada. The Treasury Board works hard at protecting trademarks of Canada. As I’ve mentioned before, trademark owners need to protect their intellectual property. The Government of Canada is no different from any other trademark owner. The Canada wordmark conveys a trusted brand. If the government […]

Toni Onley’s house for sale

The house of the late Toni Onley is on the market…and real estate agents are trumpeting the connection to Toni Onley. Onley’s house listing (V583367) on MLS and other sites makes the connection clear. At first glance, it might seem tacky to mention the artist so blatantly. But a closer look at the beautiful home […]
