What’s all the Skype hype?

Okay, for those of you who’ve been living under a large rock, here’s the deal. Skype lets you make free calls over the “internets” to anyone else who has downloaded the service. It’s a free download (take that recession). Oprah endorses it (so you know it’s going to take off). And it works with most computers. But even better, if your laptop has a web camera, you can have a free video conference with a client on the other side of the planet. Or a co-worker on the other side of the office. “Hi there, Mark. Hey, stop crushing McCauley’s head. Poor guy.”

Another way to survive the Great Depression 2:

Advertise. Advertise. Advertise. Sorry to keep beating a dead horse here, folks. But it’s true. Did you know that companies who continued advertising during the Great Depression “1” reaped big benefits?

By keeping their brand in the public eye and creating demand for their products, advertisers like P&G, Chevrolet and Camel Cigarettes came out of the Depression on top.
”Both anecdotal and empirical evidence support the case that advertising was the main factor in the growth or downfall of companies during those years.  To put it bluntly, the companies which demonstrated the most growth and which rang up the most sales were those which advertised heavily.  The Great Depression offers classic
examples of the power of brand advertising even during times of economic crisis.” For more information, click here.
So, what are you waiting for?  Give us a call. Actually, give us a Skype. And let’s beat the heck out of this recession, and then take its lunch money. Ain’t that right, Weird Al?
