It has been often said that you have to spend money to make money. I believe this is true, which is why I decided to have a party where I would charge people to attend. I invited nearly everyone in the neighborhood. I threw this party with the idea of turning a profit, so I wanted to spend only a certain amount to get the maximum results. I spent some of my budget to buy Twitter retweets. This would be my form of promotion for the party to anyone else who didn’t know about it or who forgot about it.
Since everyone is already on Twitter anyway, all I had to do was buy the re-tweets and let them do my work for me. The re-tweets would be passed from person to person, like some kind of cyber disease. Friends and family would know about party, which would result in more people attending, and result in a bigger profit.
Some of my friends who came to the party helped me set everything up. They bought some light refreshments when they came and set up the music table. It pays to have a friend who loves to DJ and is into vinyl records. He likes to mix and scratch all the time, so I knew he would be a big hit at the party. The guests started to arrive. Some people arrived early, while others arrived fashionably late. The house was packed and it was a good thing that I decided to hide all of my valuables before the party started, because I didn’t want anything to get stolen or broken. My friend who was working the turn tables had everyone doing all kinds of wild dances with the music he was playing. I had to make sure things didn’t get too loud or the cop would come.
My favorite movies have started coming on TV, and I can watch them since I’ve gotten service through http://www.cable-tv.com/time-warner-cable/. I used to go to the movie theaters a lot in my younger days, but I don’t do it as much anymore, mainly because I don’t have the money to spend on each film. Prices for movies have gone up, and so have theater food prices. I’d rather just stay at home and wait for the films to come to me. At least I’ll pay less to watch them and eat. Not to mention, I’ve made my own theater in my home, and although it isn’t as big as the real theater, it still provides a great experience.
My theater has a large screen and a projector. I thought about getting a large TV for the theater, but I decided to get a projector for that authentic experience. The projector also makes a larger image than a TV. I have theater seats with cup holders, and off to the side I have an air popcorn popper with a butter heater. It comes with its own bags. Whenever I have guests over, they always want to eat the popcorn and drink a soda. I buy the popcorn in bulk from a warehouse store, so it’s much cheaper than if I bought it in small packages.
The movie I’m looking forward to seeing the most is a sci-fi thriller that involves time travel. I’ve heard good things about it, and I love a good sci-fi movie. If the movie is as good as I think it will be, I’ll watch it again when it airs. Movies usually air 3 hours after their first showing. Maybe I’ll have a viewing party for everyone who hasn’t already seen the movie once in theaters, so there will be no spoilers.
It really doesn’t matter if you have a retail store or provide a service. If you have customers, you are probably looking to take advantage of how apps are keeping businesses in touch with their customers. I was looking for a place that does mobile web app development in Chicago to make an app for me. Many business owners and their management teams have ideas on how to implement a cool app to keep customers in constant contact with the business. However, finding a great company to actually build the app may not be that easy.
There are a lot of companies out there that promise to build a great app for any sort of company. Apps can do all kinds of things. Apps used by retail stores typically build a customer profile and offer savings incentives. It may be special “digital” coupons or special information about sales deals for members. The apps typically use push notifications to tell customers about the savings opportunities available to them. An app may even detect when the customer is in another store and notify them how they could save even more on certain products they like if they would come on over to their store instead.
A huge retailer has now instituted a cash back option for customers. When you use the app to scan the barcode or QR code on your receipt, the algorithm checks local competitors to see if they offered a better deal. If there is an advertised special that is at a lower price, the store gives you the difference back on a printable coupon or on a card to use in the store as cash later on. I really wanted to be able to get into having an app for our store before my competitors took any more of my market share away.
It has become obvious that we can make some money if we expand our services. The truth is that we are on a relatively busy motor way which has almost nothing else on it. If we expand our hours then we would be the only place that was open for close to half an hour in either direction. I have been thinking about the cost of a great coffee machine, a Bezzera and some Central Coast coffee beans to have some really premium coffee for people to stop and get. Of course the drivers on the road stop here for fuel and coffee all of the time. If you had a really good cup of coffee to offer them they might choose to stop here instead of some other place. Of course opening a grill is the big thing. You want to be able to feed people coming off the road.
Right now we have a microwave oven and there is a good bit of stuff that we have,but it is not the sort of food that would make you pull over if you were really hungry. Of course I can find a person to cook quite easily. I know a couple of them who will be able to do the job very well. It is just a matter of coming up with a plan and executing it. We have to make some space and I am thinking that I would need to first add on a part to the building and then knock out a wall. That would give me plenty of room to put in a grill, but the question is how much it will cost me and how big of an inconvenience that will be. If you were lucky you could perhaps do this largely at night.
