Meeting with friends in Dallas to talk Tripadvsor.com
After a fun, fast weekend in the Florida Keys (see below), I'm now headed south again. Today, I'm flying to Dallas to meet with some friends about the impact Trip Advisor
has on local businesses and how to cut back on business advertising.
Yesterday, I was talking with a very good friend of mine and we started talking about Trip Advisor. This animosity for online reviews and online forum postings is much bigger
than I ever thought. The dislike for TA reminds me of the dislike for the Yellow Pages years ago. Just like the Yellow Pages, nothing lasts forever.
Looking forward to talking with some old friends face to face on this topic that has me
focused on solutions and alternatives.
From what I can see, the executives at TA don't care at all about their advertisers and/or their users.
Booked trip last night - Off to Los Angeles and Long Beach Tomorrow
My good friend who sells and represents the golf-board in Hawaii is going to be in Long Beach. If I'm flying to DFW why not visit my daughter in the Big D and then head out to LAX.
Yep, I mentioned the golf-board on TA when someone asked
about hoverboards and the new technology. The fact that my buddy is the prime distributor of the boards in Hawaii didn't set well with some posters.
I may also be lucky enough to catch up with my best friend who is a power house in the entertainment
industry. He is my hero! If I really worked for a living he is the type of person I would like to be!
LAX and then Super Bowl Party with Family
The week wouldn't be complete without a flight up to SFO and meeting
my family. My wife and son will fly out to SFO on Friday night.
Do I care about the game? No. Do I enjoy going to the game? Yes.
My credibility was often called into question. I included
a picture to show I'm serious.
i often include photos that support my posts.
