#PreSpringTweet @MurasakiChicago

On 2/24/10  I had the pleasure of attending another great tweetup. This event was organized and hosted by Sami Ari (@tokyofan on twitter). The event was held at Murasaki (@MurasakiChicago on twitter). The mood was definitely festive. Drinks were flowing and there were great treats provided by @ChiBeardPapa and @garrettpopcorn. During the course of the night I had the opportunity to meet people face to face that I have chatted with on twitter! It's always fun to finally meet people that you get to know on twitter first. Social media is a great way to connect with people on line and then in real life. The actual meet ups are what the real social in social media is all about! Thanks again to Sami and Murasaki Lounge. Here are some pictures of the event provided by Sami. The following is a list of some  great people I had an opportunity to speak … [Read more...]

Village Creamery Has Premium Ice Cream In Chicagoland!

The Village Creamery offers great homemade Ice Cream and has many delicious and exotic flavors. All of their Ice Cream is made fresh at the store! They have two locations. One store is at 8000 Waukegan Rd. Niles, IL. (corner of Waukegan & Oakton). The other store is at 4558 Oakton St. Skokie, IL.(Corner of Oakton & Trenton) The Ice Cream offered is some of the best in the area. The unique flavors are an awesome experience. The reviews on Yelp speak volumes about the quality of the product. These stores offer flavors not to be found elsewhere in Chicago. My personal favorites are Macapuno, Maiz, Green tea, Jasmine Lychee, Blood Orange Sorbet, Biscotti, and Papaya. How's that for variety? Spring is around the corner! Stop in and check out Village Creamery! You'll be happy you did. I am an Ice Cream buff and with confidence I can tell you this is some of the best Ice Cream in the Chicago area! … [Read more...]

Taking the New Media plunge! Why Northeast Cooling Uses Social Media for Business

Northeast Cooling LLC has scaled back on traditional media and is now going full steam ahead with new media! After years of committing most of our advertising budget to traditional media we realized there was a diminishing Return on Investment (ROI).  We received only a handful of calls from people using the phone book each year, and the cost of the actual ads far exceeded the business generated. What surprised us was the fact that the pricing on these ads never dropped, even when the books started to shrink. Northeast Cooling also tried radio advertising for six months, however that was not the right channel to reach restaurants and hospitality venues in need of commercial refrigeration service.  We were running a quarter page ad in a local bar magazine for over two years. In all that time we received less than ten leads. Of those only five resulted in actual business. We have also been in several local map ads and have yet to see results from them. In 2008 we  noticed … [Read more...]

Twitter Power Has It’s Benefits!

Last weekend my computer froze up. There was no external backup and I feared all my data was lost. I posted a help request on twitter and the response was amazing! Within minutes I had friends and strangers reaching out to offer a helping hand. One of my twitter pals @djshelly Re tweeted my request for help. This probably helped with the response I received. Le Wang a fellow Chicago tweep (@wangle) also responded  and gave me a phone number of a person who could help. His name was Adam Gordon. I called him and he was very helpful over the phone. Later that day I received a reply on twitter from a fellow Lake County Tweep Heather Acton (@heatheracton78) . This is a local person I have had the pleasure of meeting at #lctu the local Lake County Tweet Up. Heather offered to fix my computer and restore all my files for free! I gave her my tower and net book and she fixed them in no time flat. She did a superb job. I will be using Heather for all my computer issues and web site … [Read more...]
