I previously wrote an article for The Giggle Guide about trademarks becoming generic (…). Thanks to a January 17 ruling by Judge Laura T. Swain of the Southern District of New York, TIFFANY, as it pertains to a ring setting, may soon be added to that list. Last year Tiffany sued Costco over Costco’s use of the TIFFANY name in describing a ring setting offered by the warehouse outlet for Valentine’s Day.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve already seen this quote, “The customer doesn’t care.” I wish I could take credit for having uttered this phrase but alas it was actually Gary Wassner of the factoring firm Hilldun who made this proclamation at an event I attended recently. Out of all the insightful things he said, this was the one that really jumped out at me because it’s true: The customer really doesn’t care.

You have a website. A beautiful website that you are so proud of and that showcases your product amazingly (sort of like our stunning kids belts site). You sit around and wait and wait… and wait… and nothing. You spent all of this time and money to produce not only a great product but also the time and money to produce a rock solid, professional website, so where is everyone? It’s like you sent out invites to the party, but no one knows how to get there.

We’ve been busy filming a video for Luv Chicken! Included will be great new ideas for how to use Luv Chicken cushions as well as super adorable kids having fun with them. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the testimonial footage:

If you’re not getting the ROI you’d like from social media, chances are, you’re doing it wrong. The reality is, companies are enjoying both immediate returns like direct sales, retail sales and press hits as well as longer-lead benefits like brand loyalty and awareness.

I can tell you exactly when I swore off wooden rollercoasters. It was mere seconds into my last ride on the Coney Island Cyclone. The constant jerking, bumping, and shaking seemed to go on forever. As soon as I placed my feet on solid ground, I swore I’d never do it again. It had been a few years since I’d been on any sort of coaster, and I’d forgotten the huge difference between wooden and steel. No matter how harrowing the turns, twists and loops, steel coasters at least offer a smooth ride. That experience made one thing clear: when barreling along a track at 60-plus mph, friction is bad.
